Remembering Christy Essien-Igbokwe:Our Sober Moment Here Again!-By Edwin Igbokwe

June , 2012 it will be one year that God Almighty, the creator of all mortals, separated from us beloved Christiana Uduak Essien-Igbokwe. To say that one year away from us she will be remembered on this day is diminishing the reality of lives.

We live with the full realization of her physical separation in family as we feel the vacuum created by her absence in everyday lives. But it is for me as her husband and four sons; not a time for celebration.

It is rather for us a sober moment to reunite with her in faith and spirit as family always did together while she here with us, and time to glorify God who had admitted her into place of Eternal Peace in Heaven. That is the path me and Christy’s (biological) four sons thought we should rather go for the of her one year of transition to eternal glory.

The Igbokwe family therefore invites all our friends and well-wishers to join in the solemn remembrance of Christy, the woman you all used to adore as mother of all, the singer that you celebrated as “Lady of Songs” and philanthropist that you acclaimed as one that put shine on the face of mankind.

June , 2012 falls on a Saturday. But the family will be joining other of faith the following day July 1, 2012 for the memorial service at the Archbishop Vining Memorial Church Cathedral on Oba Akinjobi, G.R.A., Ikeja, Lagos. The church service shall at 10a.m but the Igbokwe family and friends will be called to the Altar at about11.30a.m. We wish that you join us for the memorial thanksgiving service.

We want to this occasion, once again, to thank all who identified with us our moment of grief when my darling wife and mother departed us. We eternally grateful as your show of love and support for our family continued to strengthen our faith that we are neither alone in our worlds nor abandoned to our fate.

We believe that even Christy is pleased and remains happy with you all.

Chief Edwin Chuks Igbokwe
