Eucharia Anunobi Pens Heartbreaking Letter to Her Son, 3 Months After His Death

By  | 

Eucharia Anunobi is no longer in mourning, however she desperately misses her only child, Raymond.

Today, the Nollywood legend took to her Instagram to pen a heartbreaking note to Raymond who passed on in August, at the age of fifteen, after a lifelong battle with sickle cell anaemia.

22nd August 2017 was the day God’s precious child and son , the amazing blessing God blessed me with, that made me to be a mother, travelled out of this earth. 5th September 2017 was the day his fleshly remains was committed to mother earth. 5th December 2017 was the day it cumulated three months of my mourning him, for the purposes of observing rites of culture/tradition,” she wrote.

Continuing, the Glamour Girls star shared how lonely she has become ever since.

Raymond Joshua Chimaobi Chimnonso Ekwu, your mummy is absolutely distraught without you still. Our home is so silent now without you,” she wrote.

She went on to share the memories of things they did together, how they cooked, shared meals, stayed up at night; and how her life will never be the same again without her only baby.

Anunobi had the son with her ex-husband, Charles Ekwu, whom she separated from in unfriendly terms. She had often described her ex-husband as irresponsible and never hesitated to speak her mind about her battles as a single mother. She also admitted that their son was born out of mistake.

But that did not diminish her love for her baby; they grew a bond so strong that three months after his death, Anunobi still grapples with reality.

Cooking has lost it’s joy , because you’re not there to ask all those questions,” she shared today, adding that she will however remain thankful for the opportunity to be Raymond’s mother.

“Be that as it may , I want to use this medium to wholeheartedly appreciate God , the eternal rock of ages, the all knowing emperor of the universe , the pillar of my life, for it all.”
