On this day last year, my mother, Christiana Iyabo Adu died from the complications of Parkinson’s disease, aged 63. I don’t have words to describe the cocktail of pain and emotions that has poured though my soul since then, grief broke me into tiny little pieces.
Thank you for loving us fiercely without conditions. It didn’t matter what we did or didn’t do, it didn’t matter what we have or didn’t have, you loved us all the same.
Thank you for sacrificing your life for us. Waking up so early and sleeping so late, working all round the clock, night and day you risked your life so that we can have a life.
