He said: “No matter how old our parents lived, we always wish they could stay a little longer. Regrettably, death is inevitable. No matter how much we love, cherish and appreciate our parents, it is their prayers to die before us.
“Mama served God and humanity, and as God has permitted, she has finished her course and been called home to receive her crown of glory.
“I have no doubt that mama’s contributions to the society will continue to be referenced through your impacts and those of your siblings. She was an amazing woman of substance, a community leader and a lover of God and humanity.
