“It’s Impossible To Forget A Child”; May Edochie On Son’s Death

The first wife of Nigerian actor Yul Edochie, May Edochie, has made a social media post for the first time since the death of her son, Kambilichukwu Edochie, four months ago.

In an Instagram post, she described her “immeasurable” loss as heaven’s gain and noted Kambilichukwu will forever remain in her memory.

“It is impossible to forget a child so he’ll always remain the second of my four adorable children.”

Kambilichukwu,16, died on Thursday, March 30, 2023, when he fell unconscious while playing football in School with some mates.

This was after he had finished his school examination.

In her message on Instagram, May tried some words to describe her loss and pain.

“When you lose a husband, you are called a widow…..You lose a wife, a widower….You lose a father, fatherless….You lose a mother, motherless…You lose both parents, an orphan…You lose a sibling, a “forgotten mourner”.

“Other than vilomah which means “against a natural order”, I cannot find an English word for losing a child. I do not think there’s any death as intense and painful as losing one’s child. We are still in inexpressible grief, however, I want you all to know that we are fine by God’s special grace.”

She continued, “In recent times, we have experienced the most devastating and traumatic circumstances of life but your prayers have kept us going. My friends and family have been a great pillar and helped me through the process in the most amazing ways.

“All the brands I represent have been kind and patient. Life left me in a state of resigning myself to fate with a meaningless and overwhelming feeling, but you, my amazing fans, stood by me even in my absence. This love is “God’s grace” and can only be described as both the wonder and awe of serendipity.”
