Peter and Paul Okoye, commonly known as P Square were joined by family and friends as they laid their mother to rest Thursday amidst tears and pain.
Peter, one of the P-Square twins while burying the mother said, “It is with great sadness that I stand up here today delivering this eulogy for my mother. She cared deeply for everybody she knew, whether you were her family member, friend or co-worker. My mother was always willing to help out someone in need and had a very kind heart. I couldn’t have asked for a better mother.
She taught me a lot about balancing work and family. I will miss my mother dearly and I’m so happy for the times we got to spend together. She was a caring and loving person, and was the best mother in the world! Even though she is gone, her memory will live on in our hearts forever. God bless you Mom, your friends and family will miss you forever.”
In response, Paul said: “My mother was a petite woman, but there was nothing small about her legacy, or the impact she had on others. In life, she was in a constant state of motion. She was a whirlwind; never stopping or slowing down. That kind of energy keeps moving out and beyond. Thank you Mom for giving me the freedom and space to dream. You said: ‘Do what makes you happy, you will never be happy doing something you don’t like.’ Thank you for showing me how to be a true friend to others. Thank you for teaching me how to be compassionate and forgiving. Mom, you were our rock and our anchor. Rest in peace Mummy.”
Husband to the deceased, Mr. Moses Okoye, said, “Many women do noble things, but you surpassed them all. Family, friends, brethren, as we gather to honor my lovely wife, Josephine, it is fitting to do so by worshiping together, the Lord who called her out of darkness few weeks ago. Her faith in Jesus Christ as her personal King and savior was not without effect. It was a foundation upon which was built, one of the characteristics of Josephine, her strong sense of hope. We will surely miss her, but we rejoice that her eternal hopes are now fulfilled.”
