The first son of the late Chief Ben Igboanusi Okoro, Chief Nasser Okoro has expressed his deep appreciation to family and friends, business colleagues and corporate bodies, faith based organizations and community unions that took part and stood by the family during the burial of his late dad, Chief Ben Okoro a.k.a Atufulemgbe. In a message sent to Umuaka Times last week, Chief Okoro deeply expressed his heartfelt thanks for all and sundry for their selfless involvement and participation in the burial project of the late business mogul.
In the letter, Chief Okoro wrote:
“The entire family are deeply touched and delighted by the massive support you gave us during our grieving moments as well as during the burial of our dad, uncle, brother, father and grandfather Chief Ben I Okoro-Ojiaku. The shared memories from all of you at the visitation and funeral, along with the many phone calls, cards, gifts of drinks and service, and words of condolence meant a great deal to us all. I would want to also highlight that I am profoundly appreciative to the financial support from all and sundry, especially by one particular poor woman who gave me an envelope from the proceeds of her roadside roasted peanut business. This was indeed reminiscent of the biblical widow’s mite story.”
He continued, “To the foot soldiers who made things happen – the planning/organizing committee, friends, our staunch youths, etc; I say a big THANK YOU. To everyone who reached out to us during our time of mourning, we are grateful for your continued support and love. We do sincerely appreciate. May God bless you all.”
