Veteran actress Eucharia Anunobi has said that the undying maternal love which she had for her late son who was snatched away by the cold hands of death last year would remain for a longer time to come.
Recently, the veteran actress decided to bring back the memories of her late son as she visited motherless babies home to celebrate his posthumous birthday with them.
The venue of the birthday celebration was at the Special Correctional Centre for the Boys where she gave out some of her late son’s personal effects to the young inmates at the Centre.
She said, “I have not removed my mourning clothes, neither have I opened my hair since the death of my son. I have only been wearing white since his demise and the reason I have maintained this is because my son was a good boy to me; but he was mistakenly killed by the doctor. My son was not supposed to die.
“He was a very wonderful child. I decided to honour him by marking his 16th birthday posthumously the way we normally do. During our birthdays, we usually visited the motherless babies and show them love by donating some clothes and food to them.
“This year would not be any different from the previous ones we have celebrated. I am going to do it the way my son and I had always done it and I would give out some of his personal effects.
“Normally, when someone dies, you do not touch their things for about a year. For instance, if a man’s wife dies he is not expected to touch her things or dispose of them till after a year. Initially, I decided to do the same thing but I later changed my mind and that is why I donated some of his things to a government-owned motherless babies’ home and also to the boys at the Special Correctional Centre for the Boys. I am doing this because I am a humanitarian and to let the motherless babies know that we love them.”
