While speaking to newsmen at the funeral, he said: ‘I, my siblings and the entire Ihedioha family are humbled and indeed grateful for the support, prayers and solidarity shown to our family since the passing of our matriarch. My mother lived a worthy and eventful life and that has been testified to by so many people. She taught us quite a lot, especially prayers, humility, service and forgiveness among one another.I want to urge you to imbibe these virtues for a peaceful living on earth.’

In his sermon, His Grace, the Primate of the Metropolitan of All Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Rev Henry Ndukuba, admonished the congregation on the need for a life of service, adding that death was a necessary end.
