30th November, 2016

Been 4 years since you abruptly left us. Every time I pause, I still think of you even though it hurts. Each day that passes without you has been hard, especially on this day I can’t help but think how I wish you were here with me. I would tell you all that is paining me in my heart In you we had everything a Mother, a teacher, a mentor, a practical example, a friend and above all a great gift from God.

In your life you were kind hearted who touched so many, in your death many lives were changed. In our hearts you hold a place no one is ever going to fill. One thing is for sure, knowing where you always wanted your generation to go.

I cherish you as long as I live.

Memories fade over time, but Mama you aren’t a memory, you are part of me.
