Dear Tola,

To say i am not saddened by your passing away into our Lord's glory would be a lie. But I give God himself the Glory for your life because you are every bit of a caring and loving sister, a doting mother, a beautiful person with a large and loving heart.

Your death brings a scripture to mind , Romans 8:35,38-39.
" Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress or persecution, or famine,or nakedness, or peril, or sword?.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For i am persuaded, that neither DEATH, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, no things to come,nor height, nor depth,nor any other creatures, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

And by the grace of God, through your passing, Many people will give their lives to God and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour.

You will be greatly missed by us all.

May God uphold Deji and the Twins, the Adedoyin family, Your Mum, Funmi and the rest of your siblings.

It is well with Your Soul.......Love you loads.

I was shocked when I heard the news Monday night. You were always smiling, but I know that God knows best. May God in his infinite mercy guide and protect the two lovely children you left behind. And I pray that God will help your family and friends through this hard time. We all love you but God loves you more. REST IN PEACE.

Goodbye Sweet Angel!  / Nsa Ani (Friend/Brother)

When we met, it was like an angel touched my soul and we quickly became like brother and sister.  You were like the kid sister I never had and now you are gone. I am deeply saddened by this and at a loss for words.

I pray God gives Deji, her twin babies, Mummy and all her brothers and sisters the fortitude to bear this loss. Tola's legacy of kindness, caring and love will continue to live on in our hearts after the grieving subsides.

You are loved and will be dearly missed.

Sad news! :(  / Bosede Ozigi(nee Ogunlewe) (sister's friend(jumoke) )

 I stumbled across this as i was making a memorial website for friend that died 6 years ago and decided to read further. All i could remeber was you and your other sister funmi use to come down to jumokes class to see her and simply knew you as jummys' sisters. 

You and funmi were like twins never really knew who was who but death is never easy to deal with and from what i have read i know you were a lovely person. i read something about an article you wrote and decided to do a google search myself. I could not help feeling so sad(close to tears)  when i read your articles,your talent was there glaring and waiting to explode. 

It's so painful that like you dreamed when you were a child you would not be able to see this through but one thing i know is that you are in the almigthy's bossom and He will surely be a mother,sister, daughter and wife to all your loved ones you  left behind knowing that you are up there looking down on them with your great big smile. 

Rest in Peace and Jumoke your sister is a lovely gal and i know you must be just the same. My prayer is that God will give your family the fortitude to bear this great huge loss.

I still cannot believe you are gone. I really admired you a lot and you were so full of life. The last time i saw you was on Dotun and I 's engagement (April 16, 2005) and that is the picture i have running in my head over and over. Olutola, I miss you.

I pray that God will protect your twins and help your husband, siblings and mum stay strong. Close

Since I heard about your passing I kept hoping it was a bad joke taken too far and hoping I will get a call from you saying you are well and doing ok. I have been through a roller coaster of emotions mostly disbelief and anger at the whole situation. How could this happen, you were so young and you just started a new chapter in your life as wife and mother. I was looking forward to many more chapters together and I was not ready for the end. 

I cannot imagine what you must have gone through over the last few months; I just hope you know that you were loved. 

Today as your body is laid to rest; I have to come to terms with your passing, let go of my anger, make peace with the fact that this is not a bad joke and for the first time let myself cry. Like everyone else I am forced to say; not goodbye… but see you later.

You will be missed but I take comfort in knowing that you are with the Lord… May the Almighty continue to comfort those you left behind; Deji, your children, your mom, brothers and sisters.

Tola, I can't believe you are gone so soon.  My heart is heavy and saddened that we really never kept in touch after you left ATL. You were definitely someone who touched my life in some way. You are sincerely gonna be missed.

My prayers are with you and your family. I pray that God gives Funmi and the rest of your family the strength to deal with your loss. May God take them under his wings like you took me under yours when we were in high school. I'll forever be greatful for meeting you.


Love Always,
Mobola

Shocking news! I was still asking after you from a mutual friend on sat 30/09/06 and then I stumbled across this website today.
What can I say! I can only pray that God would give your husband, mum and siblings the grace and the strength to bear this loss, that God would take the pain away and fill the void that your departure has created. To your children, I pray that they would not lack the love and comfort of a mother but that God would raise people that would love and protect them in Jesus name.
And to you Tola ….Rest In Peace till we meet again!

I'm still absolutely shocked since I heard this news. The only thing I know about you is that you are a wonderful person and you care a lot about people. I find it hard in my heart to beleive you are really gone but I do trust and beleive that GOD knows best and has the best reasons and intentions for this situation.

To your family - Funmi, Femi, D and Co, I pray that God in his infinite- mercies, give you the mind and heart to bear this loss. I do suffer the pain of this loss with you and I really wish this situation could be reverted. Please be assured that Tola kindness and goodwill will still remain even though she is not physically with us.

May Tola's gentle soul rest in perfect peace - Amen.
