Nigerian Memorial Service

Ed now has something in common with Brittany. He got to speak at an African memorial service!

Brother Iroanya passed away a year ago, and as is the tradition in Nigeria, the family had a memorial service for him today. Ed was asked to speak at it, and I played the organ. It was very touching, and we got to hear a lot of the family friends speak. We felt bad that we never met Brother Iroanya before he passed away. We got our picture taken with Iffy in her festive outfit. I want a party hat like that! They are so colorful and beautiful!


  1. It takes at least a year to grasp the enormity of the loss of a loved one. I can see the benefit of having a memorial a year later.
