EBONYI GOVERNOR FINALLY CUT DOWN SCHOOL FEES OF STUDENTS IN LINE WITH MANDELA ADVICE




SPECIAL REPORT BY MIKE CERUTTI

As if reading or obeying the words of late nelson Mandela who said  "“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”  Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi has reduced the fees of the state university students by  N10,000  thereby bringing to an end the intractable agitation by students  for tuition slashing. 
Recall that tuition was increased by former Governor Martin Elechi,  a development that led to  protests  by the students.
  Umahi had during his    campaign assured he would reduce the fees if supported to win 2015 governorship election.


The governor, who announced the reduction on Friday during an interactive forum with the management and staff of the  niversity at the permanent site, Ezzamgbo, explained that the reduction which would take effect from next year was for both students of Ebonyi origin and non-Ebonyians.  

The non-indigenes were  paying   N128,000  while indigenes  pay  N87,000   prior to the reduction by the governor.


Umahi, who had while making his remarks noted that the reduction was necessary because students of the university paid almost the highest fees in the South- East and South-South, explained that the slash was to  cushion the suffering of the students and their parents.
He however  enjoined the students to avoid cultism and criminal tendencies in order to continue to enjoy the tuition reduction.



The governor  had while announcing 3,000 bags of rice and N10 million for the students of the university as their Christmas gifts, over heard them    chanting,"reduce our fees, reduce our fees."

He also donated two buses to the Students Union Government for easy transportation of students  to lectures.
Before then, he announced the donation of  rice each to all staff of the university with N5m to be shared by them for  the Yuletide.He he told the students to continue to partner with his government.

Umahi  approved all promotions of the university staff which had been kept on hold for years and gave the university authorities N100m loan for agricultural  activities. 


The declaration caused  a wide jubilation among the students and staff who sang and  thanked  the governor for his largesse.



 



Umahi also avised  that for any student to graduate from the Department of Agriculture,he/she should have at least one hectare of farm. 

The Acting Vice Chancellor of the University,Prof. Francis Idike who commended the governor for gazetting the university staff and bringing commendable changes to the system.
He assured the preparedness of the university community to toeing the vision and mission of his administration.



OUTRIGHT TURN AROUND :BOOBOOSHA MOVED BY A MOTHER THERESA QUOTE AND WENT TO STREET TO FEED THE POOR

Rising Nigeria singing sensation based in Newzealand, Juliet Boobosha has sensationally confessed how a friend sent her a photo quote on Mother Theresa which says" IF YOU CANNOT FEED 100 PEOPLE FEED ONLY ONE" 


According to the definitive act,
"I  WAS touched for days, I felt guilty I hardly give back, so once I returned from Wellington's King Sam AFRICAN FESTIVAL, I took part of my proceeds from the show, looked for the poor peoples home and bought them a lot of cloths, gifts and spent quality time with them, one of the lady confessed to me that what they really desired is peoples presence and love not just present, that moved me to tears and I vowed to do more




"I also plan to study more about Mother TERESA AND FOLLOW or copy her giving and large heart nature"Booboosha confessed


Shouldn't we rather emulate  this bold step? And emulate Booboosha/mother Theresa?

Psalm 90 verses 1-4 “Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. 2 before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. 3 You turn people back to dust, saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.” 4 A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle”. –Steve Jobs

Rising Abuja based Delta Born astute political strategist and Barrister, in person of MARY Oyibocha Agbajoh is not your run of the mill female personalities in town
She is classy, smart, intelligent and armed with sound pedigree in the socio political world and is one of the few vocal ladies in town today, who never fears or shies from saying her mind where our Government airs
Only recently she buried her beloved mother in grand style, and in our tradition, THE CERUTTI MEDIA GROUP PROLIFIC PROFILE UNIT approached her to tell us about few lesson on her late mum, Mama Maria Eligbo Oyibokja
It was an interesting session worth taking note of


PART 1
PROLIFIC PROFILE OF MAMA MARIA ELIGBO OYIBOKJA

Mama Maria Eligbo Oyibokja was born 94 years ago to the Ukoli family of Agbarha kingdom in Warri South local government of Delta State, Nigeria. Mama only had a vague memory of her parents because they passed on very early in life. She spent the early years of her life with her step brother, the Late Pa Augustine Ukoli, a catechist at the Sacred Heart Cathedral, and his magnanimous wife, the late Mama Ekoko, who loved and cared for her like her own child. This affection was equally reciprocated by Mama as she worked tirelessly to assist Late Mama Ekoko in raising her children; and also helped in her trade. Their bond of love was unbreakable until Late Mama Ekoko passed on. It was while Mama Maria Oyibokja was serving late Mama Ekoko that she met her husband, the late Pa Nuta Oyibokja. They got married and had 9 children.
Although her late husband passed away 24 years ago, Mama Maria remained in her late husband's house until she passed on on Thursday, 27th of October, 2016, earning her the title of “first class house wife”. Formal education was not easy to attain for Mama, partly because she lost her parents at an early age. But she managed to attend RCM School, now called Ojojo Primary School in Warri. Nevertheless, mama was very intelligent as she had the privilege of being in the midst of her well-educated step brothers and sisters including the Great ST. Emmanuel Urhobo Founder GKS. From them, she got stories on Macbeth and the 2nd World War which she told her grandchildren over and over again. One of Mama’s favourite phrase in English was “before Abraham your father, I was”. Mama Maria Eligbo Oyibokja was a very resourceful woman. Right from her early years, right from when she lived with late Mama Ekoko, she was involved in petty trading at Igbudu market.
 Later, to enable her take proper care of her family while her husband who was a Marine Engineer in NPA went to work offshore, she left Igbudu market and started cooking and selling food to students of Sido and Baptist primary schools, from her residence at Sido Street, Warri. After that, she ventured into sale of provisions at her shop at the Delta Steel Complex, DSC. Mama enjoyed being busy hence a he also got involved in farming. From her farm she produced fresh vegetables, pepper and fruits that were enough to share with neighbours around her. In all of this, Mama touched the lives of students and her neighbors alike.
Spiritually, Mama Maria was a very devout Catholic who never compromised her faith. She was a praying woman who always started her day with praying the Holy Rosary and purifying her environment with Holy water. She sanctified herself with the sign of the cross at least 20 times a day. She was a dedicated member of St. Margret Mary society in her Parish. In line with the Catholic faith, Mama ensured all her children received the sacrament of baptism in their infancy, gave them the names of saints and ensured they attended Catholic schools. In her later days, she preached the Catholic faith and succeeded in converting neighbors, Mama preached Christ to everyone who came her way, including friends, family friends and friends of her children.
 She was fondly called “MAMA THE MAMA” and her response would be “IT IS A MATTER OF GOD”. Socially, Mama was full of life up till her death. She engaged all who came around her in robust discussions about her origin and current issues: she was very alert to the happenings around her. Mama taught her grandchildren old-school songs and tried to teach them the Urhobo language. With mama, there was never a dull moment. Mama was a lover of sports and she was very athletic. Until about a month to her passing, she still exercised. It is no wonder she produced athletic champions in Lawn Tennis, Soccer, American Football and Golf, at both State, National & International levels. She was a huge fan of the Super Eagles and until her death she enjoyed watching Soccer on TV. Mama’s life was very well spent.
As a devoted Catholic, Mama always desired to receive the last sacrament at the hour of her death and her prayer was answered as Mama received the sacrament in the morning and passed on later that evening. Mama Maria Eligbo Oyibokja will be greatly missed by her children, grandchildren and her immediate environment. Until her death, she was the Okpako Re’emete (oldest woman) of the Agbarha kingdom of Warri south local government area and the last surviving child of the Ukoli Dynasty 'Mama De Mama' we miss you but we are consoled that your life was very well spent and we have no doubt that you are resting with the Lord. Mama is survived by 7 Children, 18 Grandchildren, 6 Great-grandchildren, 4 sons-in-law and 2 daughters-in-law.

PART 2: Mary’s view of her mum


I think I  CAN CLEARLY SAY that Mama Was A Fighter who hardly give up in anything she set her mind to do, I  THINK Steve Job was right in this quote : Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
Well, for all I know.  Mama Is Never afraid to tell the Truth to your face She doesn't Sleep over any grievance she must find a way to resolve it before dark, she is one that calls spade a spade and not by marines name
“On her passion, I can tell you point blank that Mama loves to Work & Farm, Mama Hate to be idle at any point and chief of all Mama Hate to be at anyone's Mercy
LESSON TO YOUTHS

Daughter, MARY WAS MOST CATEGORICAL HERE, when she told CERUTTI PROFILE UNITS that “Mama always tells Young People to Know God & Work Hard as not to depend on anybody in Life. Mama Loves Education and in her life time not only gave her children the best, she touched lives of many with her educational endowment fund

“Sure she was too classy, and one very significant impact is DRESS WELL AT ALL TIME No Matter your Mood. ALWAYS Be at Your Best Mama can never be cut unprepared at any time of the day she's neatly well dresses up”

PART 1
AN UNCALLED FOR TRIBUTE IN BOOK FORM FOR OUR LATE SISTER/MOTHER GRACE OSEGHAE ALI


“Death, a counterfeiting sleep”-William Shakespeare

It is amazing what the power of death can do. For example, the writing ability that flows freely in the Osagie dynasty-LIKE the waves of the gigantic ocean suddenly coming to a standstill-when we were told to write our tributes about our late sister/mother figure, Pastor Mrs. Grace Oseghae Ali, whose sad and untimely death occurred on the 7th November 2017 exactly by 11 07pm at the Broward Medical Centre, Florida in United State of America

Having been giving the herculean task to together the tributes from my other siblings and wire it down to America for the traditional burial rights/programmes-the task, though simple, turned out to be a most herculean session for me I wholeheartedly subscribe to this quote by Sir Roydon when he mused that “It is in the exceeding rapture of delight in the deepen search of knowledge, none knoweth better than thyself, sweet Mathew, that maketh men manfully indure th'extremes incident to that Herculean labor”

So why was the TASK A HERCULEAN TASK? For once, all my siblings simply found it hard to put their thoughts in pen and paper to describe their hard felt feelings to the just deceased Grace, even to do it via the simple SMS was a huge task for some On my part, writing an elaborate death tribute on my sister /mother figure, Grace Ali is not in any way a child play, the sudden and untimely death that took place in Florida reminds me of the ever green quote of leading light in the literary world, William Shakespeare who once described death as counterfeit sleep- till date, our entire family are still being consoled with the belief that our sisters death is a long sleep and that soon we will all reunite to part no more God alone is the one who has the ability to give and take life, so who can question him?

King David, the greatest King ever and the closest man after Gods heart was most categorical in his submission of God as final say in matters of life and death, when he wrote in Psalm 90 verse 1-4 that “Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. 2 before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. 3 You turn people back to dust, saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.” 4 A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night

In composing this tribute, I HAVE been wondering why on earth are the world’s best people easily called to land of great beyond at their early prime, and often time, the mortals who often practice evil are left behind in this cruel world?

My sister GRACE is a case study of good woman, she nursed no grudges with anyone, her role in the family and in the society-anywhere she found herself –IS TO PLAY THE ROLE OF A BRIDGE BUILDER, settling disputes and rather than bear grudges, seek peace and tranquility As I sat down to ponder over Grace’s sudden death, I was stricken by a position paper on lifespan of the average woman over her male counterpart.

In a survey tagged: LIVING TO HUNDRED TIPS ON BEING A WOMAN, it was stated that women live an average of five to 10 years longer than men in industrialized countries, and 85 percent of centenarians are female, longetivity researcher TOM Perls told TIME International that there is little conclusive evidence as to why, however, a recent study suggested it may be because women have more robust immune systems.

Other theories have ranged from men experiencing more stress to women choosing healthier habits indeed our sister, GRACE lived a very health conscious life and was regarded as one of the most health conscious freak around, yet death in words of Steve Jobs is inevitable He said in quote that “No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it.

And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new”. While wishing our sister and mother figure a perfect rest in peace, the consolation remains in the fact that she lived the better part of her life as pastor leading many to the good Lord MAY HER GENTLE SOUL REST IN PEACE

Part 3
GRACE: PORTRAIT OF A GODLY WIFE
It is not boast, or sentimental saying, it is indeed a known fact that Grace Ali lived better part of her life as a very God FEARING and graceful sister, wife and mother

Many testified to this, during her life time and even in death, it motivated us to seek for the true meaning of Godly woman. Yes, or what does it mean to be godly wife? We asked? To be a godly wife, we must first consider what the word godly means; the Bible for example   uses the word in conjunction with being “peaceful,” “quiet,” and “dignified.” The Bible says the Spirit, who is in every believer, produces visible and invisible acts of godliness, “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness”
The decisive definition of godliness would be Christlike . Godliness involves a genuine striving to imitate Christ, to be like Him in thought and action these characteristics of a godly disposition apply to every believer, whether male or female. Fortunately, the Bible gives more specific qualifications as to what a godly woman—particularly, a godly wife—looks like.

The virtues of a godly wife have not changed, even over thousands of years. A godly wife is one who has the complete trust of her husband. He doesn’t have to worry she will be tempted by the wiles of another man, overcharge the credit cards, or spend all day watching soap operas. He knows she is dignified, wise, and devoted He is confident of her support and sincere love because she is not vindictive or critical. Her husband has a good reputation in the community, and his wife never speaks ill of him, never gossips about him. Rather, she is always lifting him up and giving him praise. She maintains the household thoroughly and is well respected herself we were told in proverbs and these are things I enjoyed in my late wife
She spends less time in front of the mirror than in sharing her goods with the poor and needy because she is selfless and benevolent But she doesn’t neglect herself; she keeps her body and spirit strong and in good health. Although she works hard and keeps long hours, she is not haggard; she cares about beautiful things to enhance herself and her family

Finally, a godly wife should be submissive to her husband what does a submissive wife look like? Simple, a submissive wife is not less valuable as a human being; her role is not less important—but it is different. Christians know that Christ is every bit as divine as the Father (and the Holy Spirit), but each plays a different role in redemption. In the same way, men and women each play a different part in marriage. So, for a wife to be submissive to her husband as Christ is submissive to the Father means she willingly allows her husband to lead. Know there is no such thing as human perfection). But as a wife grows more intimate in her relationship with Christ, she will grow increasingly godly in her marriage. I can go on and on, but in summary I met in my sister, Grace a true woman in which the Bible says is a true noble woman in truth, we will all miss her Godly nature so much

EVERGREEN TRIBUTES ON MARBLE BY FAMILY MEMBERS

 A Loving Tribute
A million times, we’ve needed you, A million times you were there, we've cried and if love
Alone could have saved you - You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in
Death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place NO ONE else can ever fill. It broke our
Hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone Part of us went with you the day God called you
Home.
- Your “Favorite Daughter” Jediael.
You made everything better, especially when it was at its worst. You loved deeply and
Greatly, you blessed highly and favorably, you prayed strongly and faithfully. You'll continue
To live because one could never forget an angel, you'll continue to shine because you put a
Light in all of us. You wore a crown that we couldn't see but we're all glad to have been
Blessed by thee.
- Dr. daughter (Jam)
You being gone seem extremely unreal! It still hasn't sunk in yet and although I might not
Understand your early departure; I know somehow “its working together for my good”. Lord
Knows you were my rock, my counselor, my advisor, my teacher, my therapist, my guardian
Angle, my voice of reasoning, my best friend and so much more but most importantly MY
MOTHER! The best mother a girl could ever ask for and if I do say so myself; you did a
Fantastic job raising three of the most amazing girls I know, each unique and special in their
Own way! Thanks for blessing this world with your presence and I'm sorry you had to leave
Us so soon. I'm really really going to miss you but no worries, because you'll live eternally, in
Our hearts!
Your one and only,
Joch!
Ma'am there will never be another woman like you, your grace, mercy and loving kindness
Passes all understanding and I count myself blessed to ever have met you, may you forever
Rest in the ever loving arms of our lord and savior Jesus Christ
Your Son,
Hassan J Johnson
“HONEY”, as I’ve known and called you for these three decades, if I can say with words
Or quantify with English who you are or what you have meant and how you changed my
Lives I will hardly on this earth find one word except for multiple words. You have been the
Only friend, sister and mother I know, but God knows best. Even in your home going you
Changed mine, our girls and grandsons’ life forever. A precious jewel I will eternally miss
You and my life can never be the same. May your soul rest in peace. Amen.
Your Loving Husband,
ArchBishop Alli, John Alli.
  A Loving Tribute
My big sister Grace, your departure is shocking, am speechless, your heart of comfort, giving
And hospitality has no equal............you have taken the last step on your journey home and
Although you may be gone...you will never be forgotten. In the tomorrows still to come you
Will walk beside us in the sunshine and the rain; we will speak your name often...and we will
Close our eyes and smile...because you lived!
Lucky O. Fashanu
WHAT can I say, Odegua my lovely sister gone at her prime, thank God you led me to Christ
At young age, I will miss your smiles. We will always look back on our time with you and us
Will always think of you with love, friendship, courage and admiration! And today as we sit
In the silence, we feel you still, ever near. As we sit here, we miss you - but not with a
Burdened heart and a bowed head. We miss you for the laughter we shared; we miss you for
Friendships forged; we miss you in the defiant moments when you stood your ground -
Resolute in your faith and purpose...and we miss you, each of us in our own personal ways,
For all the special intangible ways that your touched our hearts - ways that cannot be defined
By words.
Sunny Osagie
Yesterday, my dear GRACE, We shared our lives for many years and we will always hold
Your memory as a keepsake in our heart. As we look back at the yesterdays that we shared
With you - we remember with gratitude; we remember with a saddened yet happy heart. We
Remember you for there are no word to describe your shocking death.
Charles Osagie
My dearest “sister G”.
It is said that no man is truly great who is great only in his lifetime. The test of greatness is
The page of history. As we all mourn your sad passing away, I take comfort in the fact that
Many can testify that you left a very special mark in their hearts, and you were an ambassador
For God in a very special way. So history will always have a special place for you. Thanks for
the salt you added to the earth and the light you added to the world.
May heaven receive you with wide open arms.
Phil Osagie
My Grace, my Odegua, my wonderful wonderful daughter. Your departure has put pepper in
my eyes and torment to my heart. The tears have not stopped falling from my eyes. I cannot
Promise that I will soon stop crying. But I promise you, that I will always remember your
Beauty and your goodness. I will always love you.
Your mum
Love, Your “Bundle of Joy”,
Emmanuel Seymour Alli Johnson.

    A Loving Tribute
My mama GEE, I am short of words, you are gone so soon, you came, touched lives, gave
Sacrificially and left, your simplicity is amazing, I adore that in you and you weren’t even
Capable of hurting a fly, we will ever miss you.
Emmanuel Osagie
My sister you lead me to Lord at early age now you are gone to meet the lord, for though
We do not understand we place it in God’s hands, knowing that He will work all things for
Good for those who believe, I will miss your motherly love and advice.
Love,
Queen O. Lawal
My best friend, my sister, my confidant,
From the very beginning when we met 40 years ago, it was evident God had given me
a special gift by bringing us together. You have been there for me in good times and through
Difficult times, you have been my friend for all seasons, a friend in need and a friend indeed.
Your unconditional love, loyalty, generosity and deep commitment to my wellbeing never
Waned even after four decades. With you I could always be myself there was nothing too hard
To share with you, you have remained such an integral part of my life all through the years.
Even as my heart is filled with so much pain, you have left me with such beautiful memories
That I would hold on to forever. Your light will always be there in my heart. I am very grateful
To God for the life he gave you, with you there was no dull moment, you shined everywhere
You went and you lived your life completely devoted to God. Sometimes it's not how long we
Spend on Earth but how well we live our lives. My dearest, you lived a beautiful great life,
You lived your life to the fullest in service to God and humanity. I praise God for your life
And the privilege of all we shared together.
Yours truly,
Stella Osagie
Words cannot express what you meant to All Grace Ministries. Your smiling face and
Peaceful presence can lighten any room. Your belief in "This God", encouraging words of
Wisdom and ability to make us all feel individually special has giving us strength to
Continue. We will cherish every moment spent with you and forever be thankful for the gift
Of love you have left us all. Our only regret is you time with us was fleeting but we hang on
To the hope that we will one day meet again in Glory. All Grace will never be the same
Without you but one memory we all shared is your timeless beauty and loving heart which
Will be with us forever.
Yours Sincerely,
Member of ALL GRACE MINISTRIES, Inc. Fort Lauderdale.

 A Loving Tribute
My Dear aunt…. every moment spent with you was filled with smiles, laughter and
Positivity, you are the true definition of one in a million. You taught me so many things just
By your lifestyle, and even though it hurts that you have left, it is comforting to know that
You are in a place worthy of you. It was a privilege to have known you and spent time with
You. You can never be forgotten and your memories are treasured.
Your fondest,
Ofure Osagie.
“Mrs. Grace Alli” is what most of you know her as, to us she was mama J, or simply
Aunty, she had a smile that could light up the heavens and a voice that turned the white
Angels green with envy and that’s what most people would remember about her, for some of
Us, what we’d remember the most was how she casually dished out sound advice when we
Were in trouble, how she was the aunt who we could talk to about the most random and
Unconventional things, she was full of life, zest and vigor. I haven’t met anyone more aptly
Named, she conducted herself even at her last moments on this earth with Grace, we
Celebrate her life not because it’s the right thing to do, but because if ever there was a life
Well lived and deserving to be celebrated, its hers, every second spent with her was a
Priceless gift, and now they’re even more precious. We’ll miss you, and a day won’t go by
Were we don’t think about you but we’ll be eternally thankful for the love you showed, the
Life you lived and the legacy you left.
Your Dearest Nephew,
Ejay.
Reflections of J Boys,
Reflections of J Boys,

52 years ago, an amazing person was born
We have lost an angel 
We have lost a jewel
Many things come to mind when we think of aunty Grace
But the one thing that stands out is her smile.
That genuine, warm smile.
We will never forget her light-hearted nature.
The way she always seemed to be having a great day.
We will never ever forget
A mother she was.
A friend she was.
A daughter she was.
Our family she will forever be
We are overjoyed that she lived to see a grand child
We are glad she lived to see a loving family
52 years ago a jewel was born,
And we are honored to have known her.
Love your nephews,
Jordan, Judah and Josiah

A CLASSIC POEM FOR MAMA
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say,
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from Heaven, where I dwell with God above,
where there are no tears or sadness, there is just eternal Love.

Please do not be unhappy, just because I'm out of sight,
Remember that I'm with you, every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me, and said, ' I welcome you'.

'It's good to have you back again.
You were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man'.

Then God gave me a list of things he wished for me to do.
And foremost on that list of mine, is to watch and care for you.
I will be beside you, every day of the week and year,
and when you're sad I'm standing there, to wipe away the tear.

And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on Earth, and all those loving years,
because you're only human, there's bound to be some tears.

One thing is for certain, though my life on Earth is over,
I am closer to you now than I ever was before.
And to my many friends, trust God knows what is best.
I am not far away from you; I'm just beyond the crest.

There are rocky roads ahead for you and many hills to climb,
Together we can do it, taking one day at a time.
It was my philosophy and please I'd like for you,
to give unto the world, so the world will give to you.

If you can help someone who's in sorrow or in pain,
then you can say to God at night, my day was not in vain.
And now I am contented that my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

When you're walking down the street and I am on your mind,
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind.
And when you feel a gentle breeze of wind upon your face,
that’s me giving you a great big hug, or just as of embrace.

When it's time for you to go from that body to be free,
Remember you are not going, you are coming home to me.
I will always love you, from that place way up above,
I will be in touch again soon.
P.S. God sends his love.
- For our beautiful Mama
