Remembering Nnamdi Inyama, one year after
On Tuesday, October 24, 2016, you departed this sinful world. Your sudden death gave us so much pains and heartbreak. Words cannot express my feelings. Your death still leaves me speechless. We are filled with deep thoughts daily. You were a figure that represented different pictures to different people.
If anybody told me you would go so early, I would not believe. Even when I came to the hospital, you told me you would soon be back to the house. You were so passionate about your work to the extent that you told me you needed your Laptop to work from the hospital.
Suddenly, I heard a call from your youngest sister that you were bleeding from the nose and you said that they should call me to seek my advice on what to do, which I did immediately. When I came to the hospital, I found you unconscious. I asked all the questions, nobody gave me a tangible answer.
Anyway, Nnam your departure left me heart-broken that I couldn’t work for five months and no day passes without tears from my eyes.My heart still remains weakened. Pains still run over us that we are always at Magodo, my cousin’s house.
The worst that happened was on my birthday. I woke up and Sonma came in. She said: “Mummy, I know you will not cry. Daddy is not here to tell you happy birthday and present your gift…” When I came back from work, she gave me sweet and said, “from Nkiru, Chinaza, Sonma and Daddy.”
Also on your birthday, we played all your favourite songs. Nnam, words cannot explain how much we have truly missed your presence and word of hope.Your love to me was uncompromised right from the first day we met. Though it did not last long, but I will love you forever. And we pray to God to grant us the grace and strength to bear your loss and to complete the race you began.
Though the parting has been painful, we are consoled that you are with the Lord. We are strengthened with your good deeds and legacies.I appreciate the management and staff members of The Guardian, former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, Management and employees of Holy Trinity Hospital, Ikeja and relatives, especially Dame Comfort Obi, Professor and Mrs. Nnadozie Inyama, Obi Royal Family Ezedibia Emekuku Owem, friends, neighbours and associates, who have stood by us this one year.
