Chimma, ever since we met on the day of my matric, u became
my friend & my sister. While on earth, u were my role model.
With your good behaviour,charming smile, burning desire to
serve God, ur humility and kind nature,u were able to
maintain good relationship with everybody who came in
contact with you.
Dede and I visited u on the 22nd of Dec 2016 during ur short
break from NYSC, and u were full of life.
It's really painful to believe u are gone.
We spoke on the 3rd Jan 2017 and u told me on phone that u
have gone back to Akwa-Ibom to complete ur NYSC.
Is this d completion of your NYSC?

I saw how people gathered in silence with hands folded. Chief
was weeping for his only daughter, i saw how grief tore Lolo
apart. Obinna and Dozie were speechless.
I gazed at your picture, what came to my mind was "Enyia isi
ebee?" as u would always ask me weneva u see me.
Now, i am asking you "Enyia ebee ka i hapuru anyi gawa?"
Chief said u survived the accident that claimed the lives of
the other 4 persons who were in the same keke with u. U
were still unconcious even when he drove all the way from
Umuahia to Akwa-Ibom, u did not give up. U hung on even
wen all the govt hospitals they took you to were on strike. U
struggled with death from 2pm to 12 am ,until you
I know we have lost a rare gem bt i will not shed tears for
someone who had gone to be with the Lord. I pray God to give
us the fortitude to bear this irraplaceable loss.
You lived a very short but a fulfilled life and since it is the
will of God to call back home, we shall not question him maka
