Going to the farm with her on our donkey cart for mangoes, that she sold at the market to send us to school.
Some times we don't fully appreciate our mothers, until they are no longer around.
Thank you Tola..we can never forget our mothers,with
her passing i started to recall when i was growing up i
am always by her side i never leave her,i am her eldest
son and was very special to her.
My mom was a great person took care of her parents
and some of her sibling,had to leave school at the age
of 13 due to my grand father illness,took care of her
younger sister's children after she passed away.
I was around her until she was 64 yrs,due to
migration and started a new life for children and
myself i could not be there.I have failed for not being
around the last few years of her life,i was told by my
sister my ma took the last breath hearing the sound of
my name and even told them if i can't go to bid her
farewell i am forgiven,that's my ma a the greatest.
Here is a picture when she received her land title
for land she squatted on,the minister was my eldest
son school mate.
