Eulogy for Okonkwo by Nowye this whole eulogy stuff bs and i don't know why we are doing this haha.a. When my father Okonkwo died, inside i felt despair and anger. With him being my father i obviously was very saddened to find out that he had hung himself. Though i am very saddened about our loss of Okonkwo i am sickened by the way he passed, He knew committing suicide in our town is very much against what we believe in here at Umuofia. Okonkwo knew this before he took his own life, which does not make much sense to me because he wanted to become leader of the clan for a very long time, but then took his life in such a dishonorable way.
Rob’s Father is very much the same and he gets up every day except for Sunday (He went to Shaker meetings) and he went and butchered pigs for a living(Peck, 1977). Rob and his father both had missions in their life. Rob’s mission in life was doing his chores each day before he departed his family’s house for school (Peck, 1977). Haven’s mission in life was to butcher pigs until they owned the land that they were living on (Peck, 1977). One of the first examples of Rob doing something that needed to be done was him helping their neighbor Ben Tanner’s Cow give birth after skipping school (Peck, 1977).
