The Exit of a Mother General

The news of the death may be stale, the funeral may be long gone but the memories of the times spent with you remain indellible. Mma, you were a mother to all. I recall working with you during the 2016 Youth Camp Meeting of Global Youth Foundation (GYF). You stayed up late into the nights and ensured all the participants had eaten and gone to sleep, yet you were the first to wake up and hit the kitchen.

I recall your words to me few days before I proceeded to the Nigeria Law School "Junior, you would soon be a lawyer, please make sure you make a difference and never leave God. He will guide you always" That conversation little did I expect, was my last physical conversation with you. 

We do not keep mourning, but your legacies especially those built into your daughters keep the memories coming. We would continue to remember you fondly.

Sleep on Mother General!

Sunday Kenechukwu Agwu, Esq. ACIArb.

CONDOLENCE MESSAGE

I am writing on behalf of my family to express my heartfelt sympathy over the death of your wife Mrs. Nnenna Job Idam. She has created a vacuum which is not easy to replace.

 

If death is a physical object, many of our colleagues would have rallied around you to struggled her from the hands of death. Unfortunately, death is mystery which the almighty God use of confound the understanding of man.

No man can tell the distance between life and death.

 

William Shakespeare, in one of his writings said, “the world is a stage where everyone come and perform.”

 

But a bible write sum it up thus: “THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYTHING AND A SEASON FOR EVERY ACTIVITY UNDER HEAVEN, A TIME TO BE BORN AND A TIME TO DIE”. ECCL. 3: 1-2.

We mourn with you and weep with you. But remember the promise of God.

“Marvel not at  this, the hour is coming in which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth”. John 5:28-29

Weep not as the unbeliever but be strong in the lord.

Thanks.

Inyang B. Eboh

For the family

TRIBUTE TO A GREAT SCRIPTURE UNION MOTHER

It is with a deep sense of personal loss that we, the Classical Old Students Association (COSA) wish to commiserate with the entire members of the Idam Family on the passing of Late Mrs. Nnenna Idam. 

On behalf of COSA, we convey our heartfelt condolences, prayers and solidarity at this difficult moment. 

Mrs. Idam was someone we knew personally as she was our Scripture Union Teacher at the Master's Vessel Classical Academy, Umuahia, Abia State. Every Sunday at 4pm, we gathered at the Chapel to listen to her teach the undiluted word of God - this she did with so much grace and calm and love. She made Christianity so easy for little children like us. She led us to JESUS.

But she was not only our Scripture Union Teacher,  she was more than that. She was our Mother. Her contributions to our personal development were profound, authentic, unique and incisive. She was filled with laughter,  warmed up to us and had a very beautiful homely personality such that we were no longer listening to THE SCRIPTURE UNION TEACHER but to A MOTHER. OUR MOTHER. 

Most of us still hum the songs she taught us. It is because of her that we left Classical Academy with high Christian and Moral values. 

The Death of Mrs. Idam is painful, especially as she left behind a family, but we can draw solace that she lived a very Holy and Righteous Life. 

Her teachings, stories and songs will continue to linger in our memory and serve as a source... VIEW FULL TRIBUTE
