While lamenting the dimise of the wife, whom he said time has not been able to heal, the one-time House member wept that his heart ache, stressing that the vacuum could not be replaced.
Hear him: “Time and life they say heals all hurts. But my heart does ache, and all I think is how I miss my wife. It does hurt badly. You did so much for me. My lovely wife I hate to ask, but can you dry the tears? My wife that can’t be replaced. Nothing has been revealed to me by the Angels, but only angel’s frozen tears. A reminder of the love we shared.
“Every day I see things you’ve done, all the things we didn’t get to do and the things you hold dear; your virtue, decency, faithfulness, nobility, honesty, truthfulness and trustworthiness”, Iwurie, added.
He said: “Our daughter is growing fast, lonely without you here, I am trying to be strong for her, so I still hold you in my arms, your soul no- longer lost~ but it still don’t replace the affectionate love of a mother.
“What a great gift of life from God you were- it is so easy to be thankful for the good things. What an irreparable loss for earth- we thank God for this big setback. She is Heaven’s gain.
“Bowed are our heads for a moment in prayer; Father, we lift our thankful hearts to Thee. O Lord our hearts we lift to thee in thanksgiving because you are a perfect and faithful God”, he lamented.
