A Nigerian woman, Ijeoma Madu, has shared the appreciation letter her young niece penned to her husband.

''My prayer to my daughter (niece) is that God will keep you alive to fulfill your promises. What killed your dad when you were only 2yrs old will not kill you. You will live to enjoy all the love I have for you. You have been a source of joy for the past 10yrs I took you to be my baby.
"You shall always be the best amongst equals, academically you shall excel. You will go places. You will make me proud, me and you shall eat the fruit of our labour..."
