Most times ,we look at death as not a part of us,
We even think it happening to”THEM” not ,US”-
We know death will come when it will ,
And strike with no regrets , no discriminations,
And no distinctions.
It strikes unplanned, at any time, irrespective of
Age, Position, Status, Religion and Name in anyone´s journey,
Take it or leave it, we remain a death denying Society,
And look for reasons of death else where and not
Accepting death when it Comes.
The truth is that death is real ,and does not only happen to “THEM”.
It happens to all,
Ncheta , death has stuck us,
You are gone and we are so sad.
Your Family have not been fair to us,
But we will Keep on treating them with “LOVE”,
For love conquers all evil.
We are mourning you with a heavy heart.
At times like this , we cannot but think of our own
For it will come when it will,
A necessary end ,
That we see as thief,
That robs us of our loved ones..
We all will face death,
With the same fate , call it “MELANCHOLY”
Every ones journey will end at God´s
The News is that we do not want our lives to
Pass us by,
Without living a positive print,
That will be remembered .
Our Lord has made it,
That through all the opportunities ,
And reflections of life.
We should not Forget to face
The realities that death is a part
Of life, and does not only happen to “THEM”.
We all dread death ,
We all become heart-broken when
A loved one dies.
A beloved wife,mother sister,daughter in law
And a friend goes home to our eternal father,
Where there is no pains ,no wants , no struggles
And no fights.
This is like a fairy tale,
Difficult to believe that Ncheta( Joshua´s mum)
And my brother´s wife is gone like the wind.
You are gone ,
Words are not enough to express how much we have
Missed you in the last seven weeks.
Your nature,your person
Your character,is all that makes you who you are.
We all are unique in our own ways.
You have been part of our Family for the past
11-years and gave us a fantastic son (Joshua).
We love you very much and you will always
Be a part of our Family.
That is the facts of life ,we never had a quarrel with you
To require anyone else to come and settle it for us.
You were your families anchor,
Now that you are gone your way ,it will never be the same.
You have left a big vacuum.
That no one will fill .
Ncheta,you will fear death no more .
For death is seen in the holy Bible ,
As the wages of our sins ,
And passage to another world .
It is holy and sacred,
The fear of it ,
The dread of it ,
Exposes our human weaknesses.
It is not the end ,
But the beginning of a new life in a different
Ga Nudo Nchetachi,
We love you so much ,but God loves you more.
He will find you a resting place in His Kingdom.
We will forever miss you ,
We loved you and will still love you.
In death , our brother , your husband and we your
Sisters in-laws, my Senior brother ,nieces,nephews,
And our kings men and women did not have it easy with
In the end love prevailed .
Ncheta as you finally would be led to rest
On Saturday ,11 November ,
We say farewell, Ijeoma.
We shall meet to part no more.
If the world denied you peace,
Be reassured that our mother Mary
The Mother of Jesus has given you
a spiritual peace.
We pray the Lord overlook your short-comings
And grant you peace.
You are home to a place where there will
be no quarrels and misunderstandings,
A home where there will be no dragging of anything,
A home full of love and no threats ,
A home-made easy,
We know you are home,
But,it is hard for us not to hear from you
Not to hear your physical smiles.
And not to share those your jokes again,
Goodbye and God welcome you into His heavenly home.
May your gentle Soul rest in perfect peace.
