TRIBUTE TO MY DEAREST MOTHER
Life is just a mystery that no one can predict. It was like a dream but now I know that is a reality that my one in million (Mother) confidant, role model, God fearing, seals of Respect is no more. Mma-Mma, as we call you. Sincerely since you left, I felt empty as nothing like bones is in me. Your sudden departure, a pain seem so difficult to bear. You were such a humble being, the woman that tolerates people when when there is a problem. You toiled as a mother and father just to bring us up. You stood by me in trials and difficult times. (God bless you). So now you leave without enjoying the fruit of all what you labour. How I wish the power has been given to me, I would have restored your life just for you to give me those sweet words as usual. (Your creator will Judge this). Eka-mmi, I miss you sincerely-rest till we meet in that glorious morning, when there will be no hatred, sickness, suffering and dead. I feel for you. Sanga-sung-ya ofon ye afo_Amen.
Mei-Mei Alias Emem.

Oh why must it happen like this? So sudden, so soon, is the day I will never forget in my life. It is the day that I never dream of being sad. Glad that you showed me the part of God, o I will remain strong not because I feel strong, but because it is what you would have wanted, I will strive not because I know how to, but for the sake of your memory I will stand still because you never taught me otherwise. I can’t explain how I felt about your sudden departure because I never thought that I will loose you so soon. The love and kindness you show towards me is something I will never forget in my life. My hunger is who will I Go to when I am thirty? Who will comfort me when I am trouble? Mum I love you but God love you most. I don’t have much to say, my only word is rest in peace my beautiful mother, the God fearing woman. Adieu Adiaha Eka.

I’m writing this tribute with tears rolling down my checks for the everlasting wound that can never be healed in my heart by any medicine or human being.Mummy why did you choose to live in the time I needed you most, the time you should reap the fruits of your labours.
My beloved mummy, I will always call you that name because I have searched all over, who that name would fit but I have found none. Though you’re no more On earth but I strongly believe you are some where that life is more meaningful. Mum I miss you,
You have created a vacuum in my life which no one can fill up because you were such a good mother to me,as well. God in his infinite mercy and wisdom knows why you have left these worldly shores at this time. Continue you rest as you join the saints to proclaim that Jesus reigns. We love you, but God loves you best.
