2yr after: Amanda Chinwe Aguh still in our hearts - ITREALMS

Today, Monday, 29th July, 2019 marks the second remembrance anniversary of Mrs. Amanda Chinwe Aguh. 

Each passing day, we remember her; for her level of joviality, her level of frankness, her promptness & dedication towards her commitments can't be over-looked.

As we remember her today, praising what is lost makes the remembrance dear. Remembrance is the only paradise out of which we cannot be driven away. We remember her, as she is ever present in our minds.

Sweet is the memory of our loved ones! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.

The entire members of Catholic Women Organisation (CWO), Cardinal Newman, the Parishioners of St. Jude's Catholic Church, Mafoluku-Lagos, her family members & friends still remember her because she was a force to be reckoned with. The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.

For us, there are no goodbyes, wherever she is, she will always be in our hearts.

Life is eternal and love is immortal; And death is only a horizon, and a horizon is nothing as per the limit of sight. The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand. The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the sand. The music stops, yet it echoes on in sweet refrains ... for every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.

Those we love can never be more than a thought away, for as long as there's a memory, they live in our hearts to stay.

Amanda, we love you, we remember you today, thought of you yesterday and days before. We think of you in silence, we do mention your name and what we have now is memories and your picture frame.

Losing one of our own is never easy, especially one who offered such unconditional love.

We won't forget your face, your smile, your wisdom, your unconditional love. You left shoes too large to fill & pain in our hearts that only God whom you served faithfully can take away. In all, we have been comforted that you did not leave us helpless.

Out of sight, but you are never out of our minds.

There is a link death cannot sever, love & remembrance last forever.

I won't forget to mention here that she loved St. Maria Goretti passionately as a result of the group she belonged to in CWO. 

The feast is celebrated every 6th July, a date she always looked forward to. She followed her way of life closely by showing love to people and also showed compassion in her dealings.

Amanda, your memories sneaks out of our eyes, and roll down our cheeks. The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eyes, but found by the heart. Remembrance is a golden chain, death tries to break it all in vain.

The song is ended, but the melody lingers on. Happy trails to you, until we meet again.

May her soul continue to rest in peace, Amen!
