TRIBUTE TO MUMMY
Your death came as a big shock to me and I am still finding it hard to come to terms with it. I wish you had waited to see we your children grow into what you had dreamed for us.
You will be greatly missed and it is only God that can fill the void your demise has created. Rest on till we meet to part no more.

Grandma! I love you and I will miss you. Goodbye.
REST IN OUR HEARTS
Death vicious and untamed. It sting pierces through hearts. I will forever hurt to have you set loose from this cold world into a realm beyond and quintessential. I still longs for you mum, time or distance can’t dissolve us. Your absence still spark my inspiration, you drove smile across my face with warm gestures and calm embrace to content us. Sadly, memories can’t bring you back neither as they are all I got of you.
I knew I would have to let you go some day. With death mapping without a compass. I just would rather have kept you here with me despite my heart still bleeds from perpetual pain in silence from your absence.
I don’t mourn you for you live on. Death truly can be terrifying and surviving is a lost trail. Perhaps made life fragile, not a thing is permanent and yes! There is never enough time, I realised I never lost you mum because you shelter in my heart forever.

Mummy I will miss you greatly. Your early exit came as a big blow to me because you cared so much for your children. Your love for us can not be imagined nor wished away in our hearts forevers. You are always guiding us and our activities as a Teacher and mother.
Mummy, I will personally miss you when I look back at the stress I have put you through as my mother. Rest in peace my mum.

I MISS YOU
Could you come back and stay a while? I want to hear your voice, see you smile, hold you tight and never let go. Tell you how much I love you and talk about it. I wanted to scream, yell and shout about it but all I could do was whisper “I am fine”. My mind still talks to you. My heart still looks for you but my soul knows you are at peace.

TRIBUTE TO MY LOVE
Jummy my love why did you decide to leave us suddenly at this prime and crucial time in our home? Why have you abandoned all that we planned together for the children, family and your school? Honey, why did you drop the lovely flower I gave you so early? Jummy love, you have created a big vacuum that may be tough to fill.
I find it difficult to imagine how we are going to cope without you in our family.
Mummy whenever I needed to go to school and you don’t have money, you would go and borrow money from people, mummy you would cook for us, you would do everything just to make us feel good but I know you went to meet your maker, we shall see again in heaven, I know your spirit would always be with your children and your only husband, I promise to always be with you on every aspect.
Mummy I can’t say all my words, but I know we would still see again, mum you went to rest but the only thing is that you didn’t wait to see your grandchildren, mummy may your soul rest in perfect peace, love you mum.
