Does anyone ever get over the death of a loved one? Does the vacuum the absence creates ever get filled? Does it ever stop hurting?
Veteran Nollywood actress Eucharia Anunobi has just written a very touching tribute to her late son and only child who she lost on the 22nd of August to Sickle Cell Anaemia.

Raymond Joshua Chimaobi Chimnonso Ekwu , your mummy is absolutely distraught without you still . Our home is so silent now without you . Every time I still peep into your room to see if you’re there . When I drive back home , I long to see your smiling face radiating that joy of seeing me back . Cooking has lost it’s joy , because you’re not there to ask all those questions : mummy what are you cooking now ? What’s that ? Why do you put that ? Mummy please can I stir the contents of what you’re cooking ? Can I get a piece of meat ? No more will I hear you say : mummy my sleep mode is not activated yet , when I say : Chimnonso go to sleep right now ! No one to ask me : mummy how come am getting pimples on my face and you don’t have ? And I have to answer : Joshua , you’re in your puberty years and becoming a young man ? Aaaaah my son , my baby , the most considerate child , my six feet four inches ( 6ft , 4 inches tall ) adorable giant , I miss you oooooooo .
Be that as it may , I want to use this medium to wholeheartedly appreciate God , the eternal rock of ages , the all knowing emperor of the universe , the pillar of my life , for it all .
THE GREAT I AM THAT I AM , I THANK YOU , I BLESS YOU , I HONOUR YOU , I GLORIFY YOU LORD – 1 Thessalonians 5 : 18 .
