“May God remove death from our children and keep them for us. We shall never bury our children again. But weep no more for our departed Dr. Nancy, we are going to meet her again in heaven”.
But when the funeral service was over and her remains were being carried from inside the church into the ambulance to her place of interment, many broke down in tears and they refused to be consoled.
The same scenario played out at her family’s compound located inside the Bendel Estate, Warri, where she was laid to rest. Family members, friends, priests and other mourners cried uncontrollably.
Rev Fr. Benedict Ukutegbe, while speaking at the funeral mass expressed gratitude to all those who attended, describing the untimely demise of the young medical doctor as very painful and heart breaking.
