It’s been one year since veteran Nollywood actress Eucharia Anunobi lost her son Raymond at the age of 15.
The actress held a one-year memorial serviceand thanksgiving in honor of her son, with friends and family in attendance.
She also spoke to Punch about life after the death of her son, revealing that she still misses him so much.
It is not possible to overcome the trauma of losing an only child; it is a scar that will always be there. I don’t even know if I have the strength. People only tell me that I have the strength but all I know is that I am very fragile and weak. Forget the powder and lipstick, it is just a cover-up; it’s been days and nights of tears
In the fullness of time, I will adopt a child in God’s time; although, I still have people that stay with me that I’ve been taking care of, even before he died.
I still miss him so much, especially when I have to drive home and I remember that he’s no more; he used to give me a warm welcome anytime I got home. I never nursed any fear when he was born. I need to correct a misconception. He didn’t die because he had sickle-cell anaemia, he died because the doctors made a mistake, but I don’t want to go into that right now.
