“It is with a really heavy heart we bid you farewell our dear great mother, you were an embodiment of love, strength, comfort and greatness in our family.
Your love and concern for each member of our family was superb, second to none. You shared a special bond with all your children especially my husband. It is that bond coupled with your rare wisdom and values that has been the glue that bound the family together.
To your son, my husband, you were his best friend, his confidante, you were one who loved him truly and purely. Knowing how to correct him, guide him, guard him and protect him was a power you wielded even till death. You were firm, kind but not weak in the values you instilled in your children Your grandchildren and great grandchildren are all well nurtured and trained because of the impact you had in their lives. You always told me exactly how you wanted things to be done, from the smallest to the biggest.
The love, support and guidance you have given me is unparalleled and it breaks my heart that I won’t hear your voice giving sound words of advice anymore.
To say that we will miss you is an understatement, for me, you have left a big hole in my heart and in the family a big void that can never be filled.
I take solace in the fact that you have lived a gracious life. A life worthy of royalty. You are gone now not because of a lack or need but because it is ordained by Almighty God. I pray that your gracious life extends to the hereafter. Rest well Onyami (my mother)”.
