The 67 years old woman succumbed to the cold hands of death after her family had done so much to give her the best treatment they could.
Jim Iyke Goes Emotional On Mum’s Death
Popular actor and Reality TV host, Jim Iyke is not a happy man at the moment after he lost his beloved mother last week and has been really sad at the development.
The death of the woman whom Jim claims to be his first girlfriend, has seriously devastated the movie bad boy, so much that he has been waxing emotional pieces in her memory.
In a press statement made available to Pulse.ng, Jim had this to say about his beloved mum:
Mrs. Ngozi Gladys Okelue Esomugha, was born on May 3, 1947, and succumbed to a long battle with illness.
My late mum was a force of nature. My big sis, my 1st wife, my confidante, my rock, my critique, my greatest fan and regal leader.
She was a radiant, gorgeous woman, with a smile bigger than the sun and always ready to embrace anyone for all the good and even wrong reasons.
My sun is gone. The dull numbing ache in my heart will never be pacified by any woman alive. Not my lover, sisters nor even a daughter I may one day bear.
The relationship of a mother and an only son is uniquely eternal and spiritual, transcending human comprehension. Mine with Gladys is even far strangely beyond that.
They say it's a blessing if a son buries his mother and not the other way around. I'm not sure they're entirely right.
They also said one never recovers from the loss of their mother. I hope they are right! May I never recover from the memories of your celestial love, sacrifices, warmth, your contagious laughter and merciless wit.
Your enthusiasm for life and service of others was infectious. I'll miss you each and every waking moment of my life. I know you're in a better place now.
I'll carry on everything you stood for 'til my last days.
You came and saw and conquered.
Adieu Gladys, from your boy Jim.
I love you till the last breathe I take.
We stand by you Jim at this time of your grief and pray God grant you and your family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
