My First love, My Best Friend, My Angel, My Darling Mother! I cannot believe that you’re no longer here with me, to laugh with me at silly jokes, to gist about everything and anything. Mummy, seeing your face everyday was the highlight of my day, and watching you smile made my joy full. Mummy, I wasn’t prepared to say goodbye, I always told you that you were the Best Mother in the world, but you are much more, you were and still are the Most Amazing Human Ever Created. Mummy you had the most Amazing Heart, a heart so elastic it had the capacity to love everyone who was fortunate to cross paths with you. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MUMMY.
I Miss You Terribly Each Day My Darling Mother, I Miss Seeing Your Beautiful Face Every day, I Miss your Smile, I Miss Your Laughter, I Miss Hearing Your Voice, I Miss you coming to call me in the morning, you’d say “Chi Bia nu” and when I walk into your room you’d say, “I just wanted to see your face” or “come lets gist small” I Miss us going shopping because it brought you joy, I Miss Our Morning Walks, I Miss Hugging You, I Miss Your Wise Words, I Miss running to you to give you a hot gist, I Miss hearing you say “I LOVE YOU” and I’d smile and say “I LOVE YOU MORE” just for you to say, “How Can You Love Me More” then you’d say “I LOVE YOU MORE MORE” and we’d laugh.. I Miss all your funny Igbo proverbs which I always tried to learn that always made you laugh, Like “gini gbasara udele na barber” I found ways to put it inside conversations and you’d always laugh, I Miss praying with you, or just simply Breaking Down Scriptures (eating the word), You loved it when we talked about scriptures, you served and loved God with every fiber of your being and taught your children to trust God. Woman of God, I MISS ALL OF YOU. I MISS YOU MUMMY BEYOND WORDS!
My Love, You Were My Strength, My Hope, My Joy, My Peace, My Motivator, My Counsellor, My Confidant, My Teacher and My Best Friend. I am whom I am because I was loved by the Best, YOU! I will never forget your ability to always make me Laugh, you found ways to always ensure I was Happy, to put a Smile on my Face, if you saw me sad, you’d always ask, “what can I do to help?” Your Generosity knew no end, you were such a giver, Your Kindness and Loving Heart always blew me away. You opened your doors to everyone who needed a sanctuary and gave them a place to call home. You had a way about You, you made Everything Better. It didn’t take much to make you happy, you derived pleasure in the little things, just having me sit with you was enough, or receiving gifts from us, you’d say “Chi, I love gifts, it makes me happy” and you were most happy when you were surrounded by all your children just making jokes and laughing. That was your happiest place! I know what TRUE LOVE is because Of You. A Love so Thoughtful and Selfless, A Love that Protects and Perseveres, A Love that gives Hope, Always Trusts and Never Fails. I LOVE YOU MY ANGEL, ALWAYS AND FOREVER!

Thank You for Being So Strong and Brave even when you didn’t feel like it, you’re forever my HERO, Thank You for the Prayers, Thank You for Your Time and Dedication to Your Family, Thank You for Your Generosity That Knew No End, Thank You for the nights you watched Over Me, Thank You for Being the Best Mother and the Best friend any daughter could ever hope for, I am Truly and Utterly Grateful For YOU.

Light of my Life, In Life I Loved You, In Death I Love You Still, You’ll Always Live on In My Heart and Hold A Place No One Can Fill, I LOVE YOU WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY BEING, I’ll LOVE YOU FOREVER AND A DAY!
