Tyiesha Ann Ngwaogu
A writer once trying to make sense of man’s life summarized it this way: “man is much like grass. He is grown, blown, mown and then he is gone”. In other words, the dash from the cradle to the grave is but a very short distance sprint. Today, we have as evidence before us of one such dash that has ended, much too soon.
If we were to use these examples, to walk through the journey of our dear daughter Tyiesha Ann Ngwaogu, we would sequence her life this way.
Tyiesha was sown to us on this earth on November 25, 1985. She was the only child for her Fredericka Wright and was born in St. Catherine, Jamaica.
Tyiesha was grown very well. She spent her first four (4) years in Los Angeles California where she was born, after which she was later relocated to Michigan where she lived until the year 2000.
In 2000, Tyiesha was blown to Atlanta Georgia where she completed her education at the Heritage Elementary School where she was involved in different learning areas such as home economics among others. She always had a beautiful smile on her face. She could not speak but would often smile with whom ever came into contact with her. She was not afraid to let it be known if she did not like you as no matter what you did she would never laugh with you. Tyiesha was her mother’s life and everything she did would always involve her Ty.
She was called by so many names such as Ty, TyTy, Nande Ngwaogu and the most prominent Missy. She loved visiting her mom’s home country of Jamaica where she would spend her days at Aunty Pam’s house where she would get frequent visits from her other aunts and cousins, she was always excited to be there.
As the wind continues to blow, Tyiesha came into contact with one Ms. Sonya Chito who would become her personal nurse. She took care of Ty as her own and loved her dearly. She also came in contact with Charmaine who also played an integral part in her life also.
Sadly, the grass that grown will always be mown one way or another even when least expected. This was also true for Tyiesha. On the fateful day of Saturday January 27, 2018, the grass was indeed mown.
Tyiesha left surviving relatives her mother Fredericka Wright, aunts (Ja.), uncles (Ja), numerous cousins and friends in both Jamaica and the US.
Sleep in peace dear you surely are missed.
