“I REALLY DON'T WANT TO DO THIS, BUT I CAN'T HOLD IT.
TODAY MARCH THE 29TH, MARKS ONE YEAR KAMBILI DEPARTED FROM THIS CRUEL WORLD, LEAVING BEHIND A TRAIL OF MEMORIES AND UNFULFILLED DREAMS.
THERE ARE MOMENTS WHEN I ALLOW MYSELF TO ENTERTAIN THE FLEETING HOPE THAT HE MIGHT RETURN, AS IF HIS ABSENCE IS JUST A TEMPORARY SEPARATION. BUT AS THE DAYS TURNED INTO WEEKS, AND THE WEEKS INTO MONTHS, THE HARSH REALITY SETS IN THAT KAMBILI IS GONE FOREVER. HIS SOUL NOW RESTS IN THE EMBRACE OF THE ALMIGHTY, FAR BEYOND OUR REACH.”

Not stopping there, Rita Edochie also sympathised with Kambili’s mother, May, and encouraged her to remain strong. She wrote:
