Life as they say is really short, this has been proven to me again by the death of this wonderful woman.
While alive, you radiated peace like a dove. A wife, daughter & sister; you were someone one could be with and never think of having any issues or quarrels.
It was a painfully rude shock yesterday (07/04/14) when I heard of your death.
You finally lost the battle to cancer after series of treatments and care. I thought you were a survivor because the last time I saw you, you were already gaining some weight and looked better. Wish I knew that was the last time I’d see you. I would have hugged you tighter than I did, would have spent more time with you telling you how much I admired you, your person and way of life.
You were a modest God-fearing woman, you loved God and served him diligently…. You were indeed a source of inspiration to many. It is really sad that I won’t be seeing your ever-smiling face again most especially at family functions and outings.
Now I can’t but wonder why God had to let you go, I would have loved having you with us for so many more years, but then I know God is supreme, He probably didn’t love seeing you in so much pain so He had to take you into His peaceful arms. God had to end all the pains you were going through because He loves you too much…. More than we did.
Mrs Olubunmi Ayeni (my dear sis in law), I know you are in heaven right now, smiling down on us. You’re saddened by how much we grieve for your loss because you wish we could see how happy you are, seated at the right hand of God; your father.
I want you to know that even though you are gone into eternal rest; your memories will forever remain with us. We’ll cherish it forever because it is actually a treasure. It was nice knowing you for the short period you lived.
Dear Sis in Law, I pray that your husband Mr Bolaji Ayeni be given the fortitude to bear your loss; it was obvious how much you were both in love.
I pray your aged & loving dad is strengthened by Almighty to bear this loss….. I pray your siblings be comforted by the creator in Jesus’ name.
I also use this medium to pray for everyone battling with all forms of cancer that the most high God shall touch your body and soul, you shall all come out victorious in Jesus’ name.
Sis Bunmi (as I fondly called you), may you continue to enjoy the warmth of God’s arms till we meet in eternity…….
Love you, but not as much as God does…..
