May Yul-Edochie, the wife of popular Nollywood actor Yul Edochie, has broken her silence months after the tragic passing of her 16-year-old son, Kambilichukwu.

In a heartfelt Instagram post on Saturday, July 8, 2023, May expressed the unimaginable pain of losing a child and expressed her gratitude for the overwhelming support she has received from family, friends, and fans worldwide.

Kambilichukwu, the couple’s first child, tragically passed away in March 2023 after experiencing a seizure while playing football.

Despite desperate efforts to revive him, their precious son could not be saved. May Yul-Edochie described the loss as the most agonizing experience any parent could endure, acknowledging the pain and depth of grief that accompanies the loss of a child.

Accompanying a photo of herself with her other three children, May penned a touching tribute to her departed son

“Words are not enough to express our gratitude to you all. In all of these ordeals, we believe that this immeasurable loss is heaven’s gain. 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’,”  she wrote.

“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,” the post continued.

Despite the overwhelming grief, May revealed that she finds solace in the everlasting bond with her beloved son and looks forward to the day when they will be reunited.

“Indeed the uncertainty of tomorrow remains a mystery and some occurrences are unforgettable but we just have to find a way to live with them no matter how painful and difficult they are. The incredible love and support from you all my family, friends and well-wishers all around the globe through various means are unimaginable and unconditional. 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.

“We truly appreciate and cannot thank you all enough, and sincerely hope that everything sums up into enabling us to stand the tragic loss and panic. We only have God’s blessings to offer in return and pray that affliction will never rise in your homes in Jesus’ name. It is impossible to forget a child so he’ll always remain the second of my four adorable children. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Almighty my sweet angel, Kambilnachukwu, until we meet again.”
