May the Spirit of the LORD continue to comfort the family,  the brethren and friends and the entire community including those who didn't even meet or know her who fought for and with her.

Carme, my sister, our sister and friend - the caring, compassionate and calm woman of God. We thank God for wonderful memories of, and with, her over many decades of her battles and successes. All glory be to our God.

She fought a good fight and has certainly finished her race to enter into her eternal reward. Pastor Gerry - you led and coordinated a great fight with many battles (together with your siblings, their spouses and extended natural and church family) like a worthy general of faith in Christ. Jesus Christ has been glorified and will be glorified the more in the coming days and years. May the Lord continue to use you and others here to lead this fight of our faith till we see Him face to face. 

May the Lord strengthen and encourage all who mourn. We have hope in Jesus Christ to see her again.

Acts 14:22 NKJV

"Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. For those who follow godly paths will rest in peace when they die."

Beloved Ukah family,
Though the death of Sr. Camellia was a rude shock, it sure did not take heaven by surprise. Your united efforts in leaving no stone unturned to ensure her pulling through this health challenge were quite commendable. However, God who has the final say over every life, in His wisdom and infallible judgement, permitted His daughter to come home and rest. Pain cannot touch her again.
With a heavy heart, I identify with your family at this trying time. May the Lord, who alone truly understands your deep pain and loss, comfort you the way only He can. Be rest assured that He has great plans for you all, especially Mama and her relatively young children.
I join my voice with you as we bid goodnight to a faithful soldier of Christ. She is not gone. Her memory and good works live on. On the resurrection morning, we shall rise!
Sola Ibeh

ASLEEP IN CHRIST.
At times what we expect to happen does not happen while what we do not expect to happen happens. At Such times, one is short of words and have a lot of questions in the heart.
This was exactly how I felt for two days after your demise. The first reasonable thought that came to my mind which I later verbalized was 'Heaven gains our loss'. Our beloved sister Cammy so amiable, caring, gentle and kind. Who would have thought that your sun will set soon. So pretty in and out. Her calm disposition makes you so endearing to all..She had a large heart, and wide arms to all. Your labour of love, heaven will surely reward.

Carmelia, the news of your demise brought deep pain in my heart and I know it is only God that will pacify it.
Growing up with you was fun and there are two things I know of you; positive attitude and resilience which helped you inspite of all odds to make it to the top. I am very proud of you, my cousin and friend.
You lived a sacrificial life, and the vacuum your demise has created will be very difficult to be filled.
My prayer is that your home coming will receive an ovation from the master.
Rest in peace, Carmelia. Till we meet on the resurrection morning.

It is with shock and deep sense of loss that I received the news of your passing unto glory. It is indeed painful as your physical presence will not be felt anymore. You touched lives positively during your lifetime. Your peaceful and loving disposition endeared you to many. You left an indelible mark during your earthly sojourn. I will always remember and cherish the time spent with you. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. You will be deeply missed.

My dear Cam, I'm simply short of words to express my feelings at this time. I had longed and hoped to be able to come see you as soon as possible this year. I was so very much hopeful that you would still be alive and we'll celebrate your miraculous healing in thanksgiving to the Almighty God. This confidence was strengthened in me when I saw you in my dream a few days before April 11 joyfully walking about and beaming with smiles. You appeared so happy to be free from the affliction that so troubled you and later sat down at table to eat your meal. I was so joyful and sharing the testimony of your healing with some people in that dream when I woke up. We thanked and praised God at our family altar; I prayed against the opposite happening not knowing that it was a confirmation that the Lord has spiritually freed you from your pains and had okayed your going home to be with Him.

Cam, where do I begin from and where do I end telling of my relationship with you? You were such a hospitable and respectful sister inlaw in all the years I spent in your house with your children and mama. We reasoned out a lot of issues together. You were so loving, caring and generous. I watched you take other people's concerns as if they were your responsibilities. You sheltered the homeless, took care of the needy and financially supported people all at your own expense. You cared for and sacrificed so much for the good of the family. You were very energetic and hardworking. You desired the best for your siblings.When it was time to inaugurate the CRM Houston church, you were such a strong pillar that helped facilitate some of the preparations even though you were in far away California. The CRM Houston church was your dream baby and we all joyfully worked harmoniously to make it a dream come true. You are not such a one to lose at this time, but God knows the best. If man could give life, you would have long resumed your normal life on earth. My only consolation is in the fact that God granted us your family, friends and loved ones the grace to do the best that we could to support, pray, love and care for you in hope that you'd recover from the illness. Alas, God's will has and will always prevail. He doesn't make mistakes. He's all knowing, loves us and does no wrong to His own. Even though I would have prefered for you to be here with us; I have no option than to resign to God's will.
Adieu, 'nwanyi obi oma;' adieu, Cam, till we meet to part no more. I will surely miss you, more especially in the United States. Rest on in the bosom of your Maker, my dear.

Oh God,I have refused to say my Sister is dead, but rather she has gone to be with You.
This is because a beautiful soul never dies.
How beautiful are the feet of them that bring good tidings, that know their God,worked with their God, and are called home by their God.
They are they who laboured indeed with You.
My Sister laboured and did you service in every ramification, was still enriching the less privileged till you called her home.
With a cheerful heart and outstretched hand, loving and cheering kindness brought smiles in the faces of as many as came across her.
It is well,the fruit of your labour will ever speak volume for you.
My heart is broken and shattered today, but l take consolation in the fact that we shall meet on the resurrection morning.
My heart is pained today,but I take comfort in the fact that you have found perfect peace,and to do the Will of the Lord, this is Rest.
In Jesus keeping you are safe, This is the foretaste of glory divine
Because you are born of His spirit and washed in His blood.
Perfect submission, all is at rest. You and your Saviour, you are happy and blest Singing with Angels in heaven above, Filled with His goodness and lost in His love.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus
Blessed are they that have gone to be with the Lord from now said the spirit of God, that they may rest from their labours and their good works do follow them.

A guardian angel returns home
Tue, 04/21/2020

On Friday, 3rd April 2020, my brother and I were sitting in front of the house lounging around, talking, singing and playing the guitar, we were only hours away from a government- imposed lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic that started in late 2019, slowly ravaging the whole world.
Among other things we talked about, we shared our concerns about Aunty Carmellia's health, weighing opinions, clearly afraid, but trying to hide the fear in our voices, trying to be brave. We would eventually move on to other topics when the weight of the awkward silences became too much and we had to douse the tension and assuage the fear that pervaded the air whenever we talked about her illness.
I cannot remember now what we were talking about, but I remember that I was on my feet and turning to go into the house when the most unusual thing happened.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw an elliptical ball of fire racing across the sky from South to West. I quickly turned my face to behold the spectacule, but in a split second it noiselessly exploded and disappeared into the evening sky. I had been shouting for my brother to see this sight with me, but he was too late- the sky already clear by the time he turned his head.
It was the first time I would see a meteor, a real- life shooting star, in my life. I kept trying to convince myself and my brother that I had had not been imagining things, gesticulating wildly in my excitement. Afterward I would keep checking online for any meteor sightings on that evening.
Half a world away meanwhile, unknown to me at that time, my beloved aunt was living out her final days on earth. The universe perhaps was offering me a final chance to intervene and I spurned it. Upon seeing the shooting star, I should have crossed my fingers and quickly made a wish. I knew exactly what my wish would have been at that point in time.
I have never been superstitious, but anything, no matter how far fetched or remote, if it could help, was out of the question for my own Aunty Carmellia.

Most people come into this world alone. Perhaps that is why our default orientation remains the pursuit of self preservation, self aggrandisement, self promotion and other appendages to the self.
Aunty Carmellia was born a twin and from before she had a consciousness, already shared a womb with someone else.
Maybe that is how she learned to be so generous.
There is nobody who ever had any contact with her that would not be struck by how freely, how readily she would give of her time, money, resources, her self, to the service of another person, when they needed it, even when the person was not deserving.
The amazing aspect of it was that the person did not even have to make a request most of the time. Like an incredibly perceptive guardian angel, she would step in and lend a helping hand, a helping purse, helping knees in prayer, a helping, a generous helping, of warm meals, clean clothes and whatever else was needed at the time.
When help was requested, you could be sure that it would never, I mean never ever, be refused. At worst, it would be a matter of time.
In deed and in truth her generosity, willingness and capacity to help was a boundless ocean in the scope of its reach and the depth of its sincerity.
If this is the only virtue I talk about regarding her life, I would still be recounting personal testimonies from my own life for another twenty eight years and six months of my lifetime.
Only an angel could love so freely, give so fully, to everyone, literally everyone around her.
Which is why it has been particularly difficult to come to terms with the reality of her mortality. She lived with a level of grace, a degree of compassion, that seemed to transcend human capacity and so it was a rude shock when cancer invaded her body and when death struck to announce once for all that she was human after all.
No words can describe my pain, my grief, the various things I wish I had done differently, how much more frequently I wish I had kept in touch with the first woman, nay the first person, in my family, in my life, who told me unequivocally without mincing words that she loved me and showed me daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, irrefutable proof that she did.
If tears could raise the dead, my grandmother said, we would never stop crying. Not until the orchestra of our voices- the voices of all of us who have been touched by the extraordinary, albeit brief life of this wonderful woman, our voices would rise to the highest heavens, descend to the lowest parts of the earth, our tears would cover the highest mountains, drown the widest oceans and bring her back to the realm of the living.
But alas, we were living with an actual angel and we never knew until she had to return to her home in the heavens.

Too much grieving perhaps is making me verbose, but here I must pause to admonish myself, to admonish us all in the famous words of Dr. Seuss, not to cry because it is over, but to smile because it happened.
It has been my peculiar privilege to have been alive at the same time as she was, to have breathed the same air, to have had the same blood flowing in my veins as she did. And whether or not you realize it, as long as you are alive, that privilege has been yours too.

Aunty Camellia, say Hi to Mommy for me. Tell her how much we have missed her and how much we love her.
When the veil of night is lifted on the resurrection morning, we shall all smile together again, cradled in love.

You were an example of what a good sister should be in every sphere of life. Your kindness to humanity was shown in one statement you kept making on your sick bed: "I can't wish this for any person". In pain you still loved people and never wished they passed through the horrible agony of pain and sickness. Being with you in hospital close to the time of your glorification taught me a lot. You were a professional per excellence. You spoke one day from your subconscious mind while we were in Mexico: "Primus make sure they are giving that patient the right medication, because I don't want to be held responsible at the end". You were still a "nurse" in your subconscious mind a profession you cherished from childhood. You were unimaginably hardworking, did everything to make your family, siblings, brethren, friends and acquaintances to feel happy. We miss you indeed and still wish you could come back to life and continue in your ministry here on earth, but God knows the best for you. I will not tell you good bye because you are still alive. Primus

"Aunty" as I proudly call you, your journey to eternity is in line with Deut 32:39, 1Sam 2:6 and PS 36:9.
You're an overcomer in Christ Jesus! Ukachi.

Nnem Camellia you are such a wonderful woman. Words cannot even tell of the unique benefits you were to mankind. You were a woman of outstanding qualities. Sometimes when I come to reflect on the life you lived on earth I begin to wonder what kind of a woman you were. You were a personality worthy of emulation. But this wicked world couldn't let you stay a bit longer with us. Anyway we just have to wipe our tears😢 and be strong in the Lord💪 because we will meet someday in the bossom of our Father. We will never forget the the landmarks you 've laid in our lives and the live of others. Adieu!. Chidiebere.

We thank God for your life, it was a good example. We all love and will miss you.
Safe journey. Chizzy

I can't still believe you have gone to be with the Lord. I am not just writing this tribute because I miss you but because I cannot afford to miss your advice. You were a lovely woman, a role model . With all the gifts you gave me but we can not question God. Even in the hospital you prayed and had faith; for I will never forget your last words to me "I have faith in God" .
Bye, adieu Nne Carmella, I miss you I know you have gone back to your creator. Naza

She that Wii always cleans my tears when am crying and tells me it is well.
It is well with your soul.
I promise you, we will meet at the resurrection morning at the feet of the Lord Jesus to depart no more.

Sis Carmelia, the Lord loves you more than all of us. Though I wonder why your light was put into a glow in heaven. Rest on beloved, you will be missed by all and sundry. You touched lives when you are here on earth. May your life keep speaking even now. We trust God for the best

Dr Carmellia Nzenwa,
It is with a heavy heart I write to bid you farewell. Your life was short but I know the Lord allowed it for a purpose. You have created a vacuum that cannot be filled. But by the grace of our Lord Jesus christ we will meet at the fullness of time.
Adieu my sister. Rest in peace.

It still feels like a mirage and hard to believe, You leaving at this moment, time was never envisaged and it’s still a shock that still wakes me up in my sleep and makes me drop tears every day.
They said death is inevitable but they love you have and shared to those around you was enough to prevent this shock and I know you fought hard , we all know but God knows what’s best and even now I don’t know if it’s truly the best but I , Sosoo, Emeka and Ginikachi can’t question God.
You showed me love and embrace me as yours and I was so proud to call you mum and you will always be my mum, no one can take you away from my heart and your expectations towards us will never be cut short.
Farewell Ma, till we meet to part no more
Rest In Peace Ne Camellia

Aunty Carmellia,
I still can’t believe I’m writing a tribute for you.
This, by far is the hardest reality I’ve had to face
Or should I say, been forced to accept.
I’ve been numb,weak, completely dumbfounded but more so Angry!
In fact, I seem not to be able to put to words how I feel.

How exactly do I come to terms with the fact that you are no more. How???

Where do I start from?
Your humility? Your selflessness? Your beautiful kind heart?
How you truly loved and treated everyone despite age and class with utmost respect and dignity.
Your love for God and things pertaining to Him?
Your strong faith in Him even when you fought gallantly, the shackles of sickness on your sick bed.
Where exactly do I start from? Sigh!!!

Aunty Carme,
You were nothing but kindness personified.
You were brave hearted, strong and tough!
You fought battles, You fought pain.
You fought and you fought so well!

While alive, You paid lots of huge sacrifices to keep our family together.
You loved, You cautioned, You admonished and You were extremely generous.
I remember fondly, how when I started my clothing business, the support and encouragement you readily gave, assisting me in all the ways you could.

It hurts so bad that we can’t see your beautiful face no more.
My heart is broken into more places than one!

However, I take solace in the thought that God in His Infinite mercy, saw you didn’t deserve this suffering and decided to bring you home to a perfect place where you have for eternity, transcended sickness and pain.

To heal, I have to find comfort
To find comfort, I have to find hope
And this is my hope;

You are resting...
From the sorrows, heartaches and the tears.
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and no years.
No sickness, No death!

I choose to think of you as living
In the hearts of those you touched.
For Nothing loved, is ever lost
And you loved and was loved so much!

Rest well Aunty
Rest well 💜

I’m sure I’ll see you again
This time, to part no more.
Until then, Goodnight ma
I love you so Much.

I'm simply speechless about your demise. I was always hopeful and confident that you were going to be fine sooner than later. I always looked forward to the day of Thanksgiving to God for his great work in your life.
Your story and good works on Earth can never seize to be heard. You lived the best life on Earth and also gave everyone around you the best life you could, both people you knew and people you didn't know.
But God knows the best for you at this time.
I will surely miss you, your advice, your love and care, your kindness to human and Everything you always did for us till we meet to part no more.
REST IN PERFECT PEACE MUM CARMELIA.

Losing you I believe is still the biggest shock I've ever experienced in my life.. I never for a day believed you we're going to leave us this soon. Still seems I'm dreaming.
How fair is it that u left us like this.. Well we all know God's will is always the best.
Aunty camellia, a woman with a heart of Gold, ready to do anything to make people around her happy, you were such a nice big mummy and aunty, so selfless, you were infact the best aunty anyone could ever ask for.

Tribute To My Beloved Aunty Carmellia

My dearest aunty Carmellia what a blessing and privilege it was to have you as a part of our family. You were so beautiful, loving, caring and joyous. You gave us so much attention despite the geographical distance giving us the feeling that we were so grown despite being kids.
There is a remarkable remembrance whenever I look at grandma's picture when she was your age.... Not only did you capture her beauty but you took her wonderful personality and nature. I never heard u say unkind words to anyone. I loved your great sense of humor, laughter and smiles.
Aunty Carmellia you left a remarkable legacy here on earth, your deeds will never be forgotten by anyone of us and those that came across u...
I count it all joy to be your nephew. If only u stayed longer only God knows how grateful we would have been but God knows the best. I put on a smile whenever I remember that someday we will meet to part no more and spend eternity together.

May your perfect soul rest in peace💞💕💖

Chai!! Chai!! Eeh!!
The cold hands of death has finally grabbed my precious and dearest heroine, after every toil and fight to save her, everything humanly possible was done to save her life, but all to no avail. The demise of this lioness is a great shock to everyone who knows her intimately, because this was someone who would never like or wish to see someone in the slightest form of pain. Well, now l fully understand the vanity of this world, and it's wickedness, nevertheless God has given and God has taken. It seems to me that you have fulfilled your obligation/ race on Earth, and I know you are resting in the bossom of Christ. May your soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.

A guardian angel returns home

On Friday, 3rd April 2020, my brother and I were sitting in front of the house lounging around, talking, singing and playing the guitar, we were only hours away from a government- imposed lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic that started in late 2019, slowly ravaging the whole world.
Among other things we talked about, we shared our concerns about Aunty Carmellia's health, weighing opinions, clearly afraid, but trying to hide the fear in our voices, trying to be brave. We would eventually move on to other topics when the weight of the awkward silences became too much and we had to douse the tension and assuage the fear that pervaded the air whenever we talked about her illness.
I cannot remember now what we were talking about, but I remember that I was on my feet and turning to go into the house when the most unusual thing happened.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw an elliptical ball of fire racing across the sky from South to West. I quickly turned my face to behold the spectacule, but in a split second it noiselessly exploded and disappeared into the evening sky. I had been shouting for my brother to see this sight with me, but he was too late- the sky already clear by the time he turned his head.
It was the first time I would see a meteor, a real- life shooting star, in my life. I kept trying to convince myself and my brother that I had had not been imagining things, gesticulating wildly in my excitement. Afterward I would keep checking online for any meteor sightings on that evening.
Half a world away meanwhile, unknown to me at that time, my beloved aunt was living out her final days on earth. The universe perhaps was offering me a final chance to intervene and I spurned it. Upon seeing the shooting star, I should have crossed my fingers and quickly made a wish. I knew exactly what my wish would have been at that point in time.
I have never been superstitious, but nothing, no matter how far fetched or remote, if it could help, was out of the question for my own Aunty Carmellia.

Most people come into this world alone. Perhaps that is why our default orientation remains the pursuit of self preservation, self aggrandisement, self promotion and other appendages to the self.
Aunty Carmellia was born a twin and from before she had a consciousness, already shared a womb with someone else.
Maybe that is how she learned to be so generous.
There is nobody who ever had any contact with her that would not be struck by how freely, how readily she would give of her time, money, resources, her self, to the service of another person, when they needed it, even when the person was not deserving.
The amazing aspect of it was that the person did not even have to make a request most of the time. Like an incredibly perceptive guardian angel, she would step in and lend a helping hand, a helping purse, helping knees in prayer, a helping, a generous helping, of warm meals, clean clothes and whatever else was needed at the time.
When help was requested, you could be sure that it would never, I mean never ever, be refused. At worst, it would be a matter of time.
In deed and in truth her generosity, willingness and capacity to help was a boundless ocean in the scope of its reach and the depth of its sincerity.
If this is the only virtue I talk about regarding her life, I would still be recounting personal testimonies from my own life for another twenty eight years and six months of my lifetime.
Only an angel could love so freely, give so fully, to everyone, literally everyone around her.
Which is why it has been particularly difficult to come to terms with the reality of her mortality. She lived with a level of grace, a degree of compassion, that seemed to transcend human capacity and so it was a rude shock when cancer invaded her body and when death struck to announce once for all that she was human after all.
No words can describe my pain, my grief, the various things I wish I had done differently, how much more frequently I wish I had kept in touch with the first woman, nay the first person, in my family, in my life, who told me unequivocally without mincing words that she loved me and showed me daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, irrefutable proof that she did.
If tears could raise the dead, my grandmother said, we would never stop crying. Not until the orchestra of our voices- the voices of all of us who have been touched by the extraordinary, albeit brief life of this wonderful woman, our voices would rise to the highest heavens, descend to the lowest parts of the earth, our tears would cover the highest mountains, drown the widest oceans and bring her back to the realm of the living.
But alas, we were living with an actual angel and we never knew until she had to return to her home in the heavens.

Too much grieving perhaps is making me verbose, but here I must pause to admonish myself, to admonish us all in the famous words of Dr. Seuss, not to cry because it is over, but to smile because it happened.
It has been my peculiar privilege to have been alive at the same time as she was, to have breathed the same air, to have had the same blood flowing in my veins as she did. And whether or not you realize it, as long as you are alive, that privilege has been yours too.

Aunty Camellia, say Hi to Mommy for me. Tell her how much we have missed her and how much we love her.
When the veil of night is lifted on the resurrection morning, we shall all smile together again, cradled in love.

My Dearest brothers and sisters. May the Father of tender mercies, and the God of all comfort, comfort you all in this difficult times. Camillia our sister, was a dear one, so precious to God and the families, she will away be in our memories. when I think of words to console, I couldn't find any. but Jehovah knows all. in Ps 34:18. assured us that Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted, he save those who are crushed in spirit Camilias death can cause spirits to be crushed, but Jehovah knows, how we are feeling. he will never leave you alone. there are some Bible words that helps me when I lost my parents. I will like to share it with you all. a word of hope, A sure hope for the dead, a hope that the Bible writer, Paul offered. he called the death the last anemy, yes death is to be brough to nothing, (1cor15:26).why could Paul be sure of that. well, because he had been tought by one who had been raised from dead, Jesus christ, (acts 9:3-19).That is also why he could write: since death is through a man(Adam), resurrection of the dead is also through a man (Jesus christ ). 1cor 15:21-22.also Rev21: 3-4.gave us assurance from God. So my dear ones Our beloved Camellia, will raise again, with our dear loved ones. it is a hope for true Christians, a sured hope, (Jon 11:23-25.).on behalf of myself Amanze and Prudence Chichi.Nji. udo. chidi, our toughts is with everyone of you.

ANOTHER PEARL OF GREAT PRICE HAS GONE HOME
Dear Aunty Camellia,
I can't believe I'm writing a tribute to you instead of a text, instead of a letter, instead of an email😢 I've been very reluctant to do this because to me, all of this is a just horrible nightmare that I've been waiting for someone to wake me up from, But flipping through my phone, pictures flying around, Aaah, Alas! This is really happening 😭 My Heart is so Heavy😥😢😭😭
Words cannot do justice, No they can't explain adequately how much you mean to me and to all of Us. You are a Mother to us all, including Mama, your own mother. You are a perfect blend of Strict, Cool & Linient; Your Aura, Your Standards, Your Personality, Your Voice, Your Strength, Your Resilience, Your Passion, Your Eloquence, Your Beauty, Your Charisma, Your Pure Heart, Everything about you speaks of Excellence. Your life is an example to us all, all your words of advice, your lovepacked words of rebuke can't be forgotten in a hurry, No, not in a lifetime. Your service to God and humanity, your love and passion for family, friends, and life itself, hmmmm, not to speak of the level of professionalism you exhibit, your hard work, dedication and loyalty to your occupation. I remember going with you to visit your home care patients when I came over during the holidays in 2013; I remember everything that happened during that trip like it was yesterday, I saw you show kindness to all and sundry, I saw you reach out to people even when it wasn't convenient for you, I saw you serve God on a whole different level, you bought every single thing my hands touched at the mall both useful and useless just to make sure I was happy and enjoyed my stay..... And to think you kept asking me to go and renew my visa and revisit, we kept postponing until boom! Cancer struck and plans changed, we were now focused on getting you out of all that pain. We were very positive you were going to make it, I for one was Certain that it would all end in Thanksgiving, Who knew that Life had something different for us😭 I'm still in shock, I'd do ANYTHING to have you back even if it's for just one more day😢😥 However, I am Happy that you are no longer in pain, you are in a better place where there is no night, no darkness, no sorrow, no pain, no tears. Though I can't be with you right now, I will be with you someday; the shoes you have left though too big but we will wear it, we will take the baton and continue the race and we will run to the finish line. I Refuse to think about you or refer to you in the past tense, because to me, you are not dead, you are living in me, you are living through me and through all of us your children. I take a bit of comfort in the fact that we have just gained one more representative of the Great Ukah Dynasty in Heaven; Heaven has just gained one more Angel. And O! Lord!! Whatever would be a threat to my chance of entering through those Pearly Gates, Abort it Dear Lord 🙏 because Certainly I MUST see "CAROMELLIA" again on the resurrection morning.
Nnem Came, My Aunty, My Mum and My Friend; You are Loved, Present or Absent, In Heaven and on Earth. I Love and Cherish You. To say I Miss You is a Great Understatement, you're forever held dear to my heart, In My Heart, there's a permanent place for you. And by God I Promise you and My Sweet Mother (Your Sister) and All My Daddys and Mummys still here with me; I Will Make Y'all Proud! This is a Conscious Promise.
Say me Hello to Mummy, Say me Hello to Grandpa, Say me Hello to Chi-boy and to every "Ukahchukwu" over there, We'll all see y'all someday, sooner or later; and we shall all abide happily together Forever, NEVER TO PATH AGAIN.
Love,

To me there are not enough words to perfectly describe your worth in my life. Now that you have been called to glory and I am left with beautiful memories of you, a bittersweet experience.
You were selfless in your service to God and as well mankind.
A woman of faith and substance, virtuous and filled with love for God's work. I am fortunate to have had you in my life, what an honour it is to emulate the character you portrayed, a beautiful soul indeed.
To love is more than words,
To know someone is more than the years spent but to make a difference is willingly agreeing to do what may cost you.
Aunty, you created a place in my heart beyond words, you made loving seem easy.
I'm in tears because when I look back at our time spent, I see why words are not enough to perfectly explain your worth. God does things His own way, even though I disagree with Him, I am in no position to ask Him what doest thou. It's His way of making me and everyone know that time isn't stagnant and sooner than later we get to give account and then our impact would be told by people.
You are my hero.
You're hardworking, compassionate and caring, I would say love in personality. Though you're not here in flesh, your works live on. Thank you for making life a little more beautiful.

These scriptures has been my consolation , Isa.26:3( Thou wilt keep in perfect peace , whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusted in thee) .
Romans 14:8 ( For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die , we die unto the Lord; whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.

TRIBUTE TO MY DEAREST AUNT.

Words are not enough to express how I feel right now. The shock of your demise hasn't left me ever since that faithful night I received the least expected and saddest news on 11th April 2020. Just when we all were preparing our hearts, minds and ourselves to celebrate your victory as you really fought hard in all ramification, but little did we know that God had other plans. It is always said that God's plan is the best and He(God) shouldn't be questioned even though sometimes especially times like this, you wish He(God) would answer certain questions. But regardless of all, we surrender to him and hand over everything to his care.

Where should I start from? there are a lot of things to say but words aren't enough to pen them down. My very own aunty who loved and cared for everyone(including outsiders) like a mother loves and cares for her own children. Your gorgeous smile, warm heart and kind gesture could melt a rock. The very first Doctor and Health minister of Louis and Margaret Ukah dynasty. You did everything in your power to ensure that everyone's health in the family and outside the family was okay! And when you hear that anyone is ill, you go out of your way to ensure that the person recovers and taken careof even if it meant paying painful sacrifices, you never minded the cost. It was never easy, you handled every matter brought before you well and with ease. I mean, you made everything look so easy but the truth is that they weren't.

I remember few years back when I had my operation, during the process before I finally entered the operating room, throughout the process, even with the geographical distance and how occupied you were, you never left me alone for one day. You made sure I sent you all the medical details, the test results, lab tests, drugs and injections prescribed, doctor's reports, I mean everything that was done. You also suggested medications that should be included to the doctors, which they did. You encouraged me and fortified me with prayers and strength and assured me that I will be fine. Even after the operation was successful, you kept in touch and called often to ensure that everything was ok.

My very own beautiful aunty, you opened your arms to the needy and never shut your door against them for once. The grace you had was beyond measures, your calm personality, courage, hard work, smile, care and love for the things of God spoke alot about you and were emulated by everyone who came across you. You were a virtuous woman who never compromised her standards. You loved God and also loved and cared for humanity.

You have always led a good example for us all as a Daughter, Sister, Mother, Child of God, Aunty, Humanitarian, and an amazing academician and we will continue to follow in your footsteps mum. It has always been your wish and heartdesire that we(the children) serve God and strive hard to become successful great men and women of our generation, and I promise you that we won't fail you. The sacrifices you made for everyone of us in several ways won't be in vain.

It is hard to accept that you are truly gone. The pain is too much to bear but in all, God knows the best as he chose this particular time to take you away from the pain, struggle and agony of the flesh and to give you peace because you never deserved it at all. Sweet aunty'm you fought and you fought well. I can't say goodbye because I know we will see again on the resurrection morning but until then, rest well in the Lord's bossom. Goodnight Nne'm oma, we all miss you.

Your one and only, Chikez!!

A Tribute
I am not sure I met Carmellia more than twice, and they were all brief meetings. But the impression Carmellia left in my heart is so deep that in all sincerity I treasured her as a good hearted woman. I saw in her a woman of great qualities.
My conclusions were further strengthened when I voiced my convictions out to some who knew her more than I did.
She radiated peace, love and strength. She touched many lives in many ways. She was a good woman.
As I write this I am conscious of the fact that people tend to say good things in tributes like this. My comments here are not in keeping to such traditions. If I were to have written about Carmellia in her lifetime I might have been more forceful.
Deep inside of me I know we have lost a good woman. We lost a woman of valour. We lost a noble character. We lost an ebullient woman.
To the Ukah family, the loss is unspeakable. I can only say a deeply felt sorry. You can take solace in the fact that she deed well in her lifetime. She did her best to survive. You as a family did all you could too. You paid your price.
The greatest solace for all of us is that she died in The LORD. Her soul is at rest now.
Rest in peace Carmellia, in the bosom of your greatest LOVER, our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

This is me staring at the tributes and saying to my self that you are truly dead... I have tried to be strong but it's not working I have prayed, I have sang, I have tried to think it away, I have tried selective Amnesia but they have all failed.How could you be gone, Just how, after you told me we will see again.Am just lost for words, I have indeed come to understand the truth in the fact that words can fail an individual. Where will I start where will I end. Tales of My love can never end. This I will say...
Thank you for Accepting me

Thank you for teaching me that indeed that we are only remembered by the things we have done
Thank you for teaching me to live right
Thank you for the many times you called me and we spoke for hours talking about nothing in particular, I enjoyed them alot, some of my classmates thought I was talking to a girlfriend because we will talk and laugh for hours without end..
Thank you for the serious discussion we had the shaped my life positively..
Thank you for calling me your sweetheart
Thank you for making me feel loved
Thank you for being more than an Aunty to me
Thank you for being a mother to me.
Am sorry I couldn't really do much for you in return although I had very big plans but big daddy took you home.
I love you so much and you will forever remain in my heart..
I love you mum and I miss you soo much
But I will see you again someday Someday...

My dear Sister Carmellia alias “Auntie Carmellia” as I fondly called you, it is so hard to accept that you have crossed over to meet our Lord and your God.
Though I watched you experience severe pain as the illness progressed, I was hopeful that you will pull through this and we looked forward to that day when we will celebrate your complete recovery. You promised me several times that you will complete your Doctor of Nursing program in California and come join us to build the new church, Grace and Glory Sanctuary, Charismatic Renewal Ministries, Houston.
I recall the joy you expressed when this church was eventually inaugurated after so many years of delay occasioned by my unavailability. In one of our conversations, you calmly but sternly reminded me that I have been on loan to other ministries for a period of preparation but now it is time to come back home to CRM to build this church. You said, “don’t worry I will come back to support you”.
Within 6 months of the inauguration, Satan launched a virulent attack that almost brought the church to her knees, but you handled it with maturity as a Woman of God.
I recall another case in 2006 when Houston hosted the Charismatic Renewal Ministries, North America conference, you came to me and handed me “the money you could have spent for air fare if the conference were taking place in Maryland”. You gave it to support brethren who may need financial help attending the conference.
You were a woman of grit and diligence. You worked your way up from Nursing Assistant through Registered Nurse to Nursing Practitioner and finally to obtaining a Doctor of Nursing degree. All these while single-handedly raising three children. Despite this busy schedule, your commitment to your God was unwavering.
As I reflect over the past few days, with occasional tears, I have come to accept that you accomplished a major assignment of establishing Charismatic Renewal Ministries Church in Houston.
Rest on now my “Auntie Carmellia”. We will miss you my friend and Sister, but I know we will meet again at the Marriage Supper of The Lamb (Revelation 19:6-10).

Carmella I’m still short of words about your death. I have known you for a long time as a very close family friend and sister in-law, you are such a gentle soul, very responsible and reserved, very ambitious, God- fearing and humble. Seeing you on your sick bed last year was a shock. You fought the fight!, we fought the fight but above all, God had the final say. As it has pleased him, he has taken you to the place of rest from this wicked world. We will continue to miss you. Adieu, until we meet again.

ODE TO A DEAR SISTER
Dear sovereign God,
Only thou knowest the pain
Only thou knowest the trauma, the batter.
Only thou knowest the confusion
Only thou knowest how precious,how cherished,how knitted
Only thou knowest the best decision.
Dearly beloved Big Sister
It will only take God’s soothing hand to erase this pain,
This sorrow, this trauma, This confusion, this nightmare.
The solemn truth is this:
You’ve fought a great fight,
The brave lioness,
You were head,heart and shoulder
High and elevated,
Yet like Christ your master,
You came so low,
To touch,support and uphold
To put smiles on the faces
Of the forgotten and dejected;
The exact ministry of your master.
You’ve won a landslide victory
Over flesh and it’s attending taunts
The Almighty has said a firm YES
To your home call
Who can say to Him
What doest thou?
Never shall your memories fade
Dearly beloved
Handmaid of the Most High
Your Kid Sister and Her Husband
Fausta& Tom
TRIBUTE TO A BELOVED AUNTY
It is still a mystery and shock to us all. What shall we say or do?.
The cold hands of death has taken away our beloved Aunty camellia. Death, you have taken away so many people but she has overcome you because she is in the hands of him who has victory over you. God please grant all of us the courage to keep faith with you because I think you have a purpose for allowing this to happen. Ecclesiastes says, "to everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven".
If we begin to count all like Dorcas, I don't think the list of your kindness to humanity will be exhausted. So we encourage our Aunties, Uncles, cousins to look upwards and draw courage from her Master and our Master too, who took her to eternity with Christ.
THE BATTLE ISN'T LOST!!!!
Farewell precious Aunty
Farewell mother of the helpless and downtrodden.
See you on the Resurrection morning.
