Nnenne! is it real that I will not see you again? Neither to listen to your soothing words of encouragement and advice! I and my siblings are missing you; we are crying mostly for us not going to get your peaceful advice, your Angelic singing tone anymore. But we are sure we will meet again on the last day. Most people that have come to you for advice or encountered you in one way or the other are crying. The young women and couples you touched their lives and marriages through your rare to find advice & prayers are crying. Nnenne, you may have gone away from our eyes, but you still live in our minds. We will never forget your love for humanity, your devotedness and love for the things of God. You have gone to answer a Holy and everlasting joyous and important call by God Almighty through his Angels on that day of April 25th, 2020 and I know you are happy in heaven. You always sing your heavenly songs here on earth, always happy. Singing Angelic songs is your leisure while on earth. Your singing and happiness will continue with the Angels and saints in Heaven. Your prayer and Rosary time are more important than any other thing to you. Continue to pray for us here on earth You are so peaceful to the core, you are my role model. I promise that all the goodies I learned from you will be passed on to your generation and to people that I will encounter.
