still kind of fuzzy. the last time we spoke u were so exicited abt yr wedding and we were all looking forward to seeing each other. i cld not make it and we were both disappointed. weeks turned to months, i was so used to u checking on me. i still feel guilty for nt making extra effort. it was a hard blow to find out in a newspaper article i still feel the shock in my bones, still got our picture and i tell my boys abt u. we had a great time in school, u made it an experience nt to be ever forgotten. i know blood is thicker than water but what creates love and friendship is the quality of time spent, will always cherish our time. my thots and prayers will always be with u. love u and RIP my dear friend.

You will be missed ....  / Emeka Okoli (Friend,Classmate and coworker )
I just came across this on youtube and I am still shocked. Tola was one of the  most wonderful and understanding people I have ever met. I remember the days we did computer science assignments together, her brillant ideas on how to efficiently solve programming  and project problems were outstanding. She was such an asset to our team. Her intelligence and poise to learn was amazing. I also worked briefly with her at IBM, she exemplified professionalism at its best. Tola, I know you are with God and in a better place. You are really missed, enjoy God's dwelling...RIP. Close

May GOD give your family the fortitude to bear your loss. I know, death is inevitable. But at that age of your demise,it's really a big loss which can never be replaceable. I wish i had had the power to resurrect you. You were such a beautiful lady Tola having seen your pictures on youtube via whymya account. It shouldn't be you. But who are we to blame GOD,the creator of heaven and earth including everything in it who love you most. Tola rest in perfect peace.   Close

I happenned to be among those who decorated the venue of Tola's wedding reception in December 2005.  It was a lovely wedding.  In the weeks leading to her wedding, I met her on 2 occassions and she seemed a very warm person.  I was shocked to learn of her death barely a year after.

There are many questions we may never get answers to.

Rest in peace.

I just stumbled on this website and was moved to tears reading about this beautiful angel.  I pray that the almighty God will console this family and always be with her husband and the twins she left behind.

Even though her life on this earth was so short, just think about the good times and the difference she made in the life of the people she came across.  She had fulfilled her purpose in life and she is in a better place now.  I pray the almighty God will protect her family and such a tragedy will never happen again.  Her children will grow to accomplish what she wanted to accomplish but could not.  The almighty father will continue to direct their path. Stay blessed and May her soul rest in Peace.

I'm sure your beautiful twins already know what a beautiful and wonderful mother you are.

Hello Beautiful!  / Adesola Odunayo

Isn't it amazing how quickly time flies. Who would have thought that another year is almost over. I know it has only been like a moment where you are, I can only imagine how time must fly while you are basking in God's presence

As another Thanksgiving season approaches, I'm reminded of all the things I'm thankful for. The love of family and friends, the countless opportunities God provides every single day. It is amazing when I look back and see how far God has brought me.

And from the depths of my heart, I am grateful to God He made us family. For every single moment I spent with you. Every conversation, every joke, every word of encouragement and every meal we shared together. Every smile you sent my way and every phone call made . Even those silly times we spent studying or pretending to study, I'm thankful for everyone of them.


I'm most thankful that God called you to be his own and He has you safe in His keeping!

Love you forever Tola!

I just saw a picture on FB and commented on how beautiful it was. It was your picture. You were way ahead of me in Sagamu, but Damilola was in my class and dorm. Its been a year but I just heard. All I can think about is God knows best. And I know God has been faithful to the family for the past year, and He'll continue to be.
Rom 8:38 comes to mind. Stay blessed Close
