Who will pray tirelessly and stand in the gap for us nma? You have left a vacuum no human can fill. Nma I watched you toil this earth like a man. I watched you fight like a lion. I watched you stand tall like an iroko whenever you were faced with life challenges! Mummy, everything I am today is because I had a mother like you. You were always there for us and never for once did you tire out. You were so full of strength.
I celebrate you today because you raised champions ugomba! You raisednations nnme! You were a one man squad dimkpa asana! You were very tough yet very gentle and extremely compassionate. You had a great sense of humor and the best cook of alltime you were. Nma I know you are resting in our lord's blossom. I take solace in that fact. Thank you for trusting me enough to take your last breath in my arms. With tears in my eyes and joy in my heart I bid you farewell my mother. I love you, always forever. Naa n'udo nnme Oma! Your legacy lives on! Chioma Akpotha.
