THE remains the late Mrs. Helen Obianozie was last week laid to rest at Akabu Village, Osomenyi, Nnewi South LGA, Anambra State, amid tributes.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer,Anambra Newspapers and Printing Corporation(ANPC), publisher of  National Light, Ka O Di Taa and SportslightXtra newspapers, Sir Chuka Nnabuife, led staffers of the corporation to the funeral to identify with one of their staff, Elder Michael Anozie, one of the sons of the deceased.

Sir Chuka Nnabuife, on behalf of the staff consoled the family of Obianozie, urging them to bear the loss with fortitude, especially as their late mother lived a good life as testified by all who knew her.

The head of the family of the late Mrs. Helen Obianozie, Elder Peters Obianozie welcomed the staff of National Light Newspapers and appreciated  the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Sir Chuka Nnabuife, the Editor, Mrs. Rose Oranye and other members of ANPC for turning out en masse to come and console them.

Elder Chigbo Obianozie, the sixth child of the deceased, said the death of his mother was a painful loss, describing her as a nice and an industrious mother, a mentor and a counsellor.

He said, “She gave birth to me as one of her sons. I have been with her all through my life and I have a lot of lessons from her both on how to take care of people, listen to them which is the paramount thing because when you listen, you understand and take care of someone. So it is a very big loss to me as a person and the entire family but in every situation in life, we give God the glory because He is the author and finisher of our faith. We also thank God that we, her children conducted her funeral instead of her to bury her children after the death of one of our female siblings, who died about three years ago”.

He further said that his mother was by the grace of God able to reach 80 years before she died which implies that God granted her extra 10 years to live on earth despite the limited years in the Bible.

Apostle Micheal Obianozie, the second son of late Mrs Helen Obianozie, who is a staff of National Light Newspapers said that death of every parent was the most painful death one can experience irrespective of the age of the person. In his words, “It is always painful to lose parents because he or she is a human being. We all have in mind that in every home where there are parents and children, as children go out, they often hope to meet their parents at home because your parents welcome you and as wel, look around in search of food to provide for you. We believe in what Bible says which is to meet one another in heaven where there is no death, pain or sorrow”. He prayed for the soul of their mother to rest in perfect peace.

One of her grandchildren, Micheals Godswin, a student of Federal University Minna, Niger State, said the death of a grandmother was not a joyous matter or something a person should be happy for mostly when you lost a dear one. In his word “I heard the news when I was in school and I felt heartbroken. I felt so bad about her death. It took me days to gather up myself but God knows the best. We all pray that we will meet her on the last day where we will all rejoice”. He also said that his siblings got shocked when they heard the sad news.

Head of Admin, ANPC, Mrs Ifeanyi Onwuta, in a closing remark on behalf of staff of ANPC said that Mr Micheal Anozie was a staff of National Light who believes in punctuality in every occasion which is the reason most staff came out massively to pay him a condolence visit. She prayed that the death of his mother will raise blessings in their family because they took good care of her until she was 80 years.
