WHY?????? / Iyadunni Okunoren (nee Pinheiro) (High School Friend )

I am at loss of words, how do you make sense of this? This was too soon, but God knows best. I thank God for knowing you, and I find solace knowing that you are in better place, and his angels are watching over you.  May God protect your family and grant them the ability to bear this great loss. Rest in perfect peace.

Much too soon!  / Folake Kolawole-Taylor (Friend)
Tola, you were truly a special person and you are missed. Cancer can do a lot of things but it cannot take away the memories of you that are so clear in my mind and more dear than ever, even amidst the pain. Even now as I google your name I see intelligent articles written by you years ago..... Someday, we will meet again where we cannot be ill. It is hard to come to grips with your much too early departure but yet again one of the facts of life beyond us. You have won!

So painful  / Femi Abitoye
Sometimes we question some things about life and why some things happen... but we dont have a choice but to leave the things we do not understand to God. This is the time to be strong. I continue to pray that God in his infinite mercies would grant all of us especially her immediate family members the fortitude to bear this loss. Amen.

Adieu Tola. Close

It feels like a terrible loss right now but we can take comfort in the fact that God knows best on why He took you at this time. 
May God in His infinite mercies comfort your family and loved ones and may this kind of premature death never happen in our lives again. Amen. Close

You will be missed  / Ikovwa Irune (Friend)
Some things in life are too difficult to comprehend. For me, this is one of those things. There’s been a pain in my heart since I heard the news of your demise. I take solace in the fact that you’re in a better place. My prayer is that God grant your family the fortitude to bear this loss. May they find comfort in the knowledge that you know no pain anymore and you gave them, not one, but two beautiful gifts only months before your short life here on earth came to an end. Close

Tola the last time i saw you was at my wedding, you came to congratulate me on the high table. I often confused you with your sister Funmi, but eventually distinguised you by your bright smile. Jesus himself will carry your family in his hands.amen Close

Tola, 
You touched my life in so many ways. You encouraged me to take bigger strides professionally and academically. You always made me feel no mountian was too big to go over. 
I wish had more time, I will miss you, my dear friend. 
God will Bless your family and keep your children as you would have.

You won't be forgotten!
Seme.  Close

The LORD's loved ones are precious to him; it grieves him when they die.

To her loved ones, the Lord comfort and be with you on the road and may His peace envelope you.... my sincere thought and prayers will....

Tola, the last time I saw you was at your wedding and you look to beautiful and happy.  I'll always remember you that way.  I don't really know what to say.  As shocking as your death is, was that of my sister Rike early this year.  May your soul rest in peace and may God grant your children and family much needed peace.

God Loves You!  / Oluwadare Owolabi (Friend)

From the time I met you, I knew that God is with you
From the discussion we had, I knew that Jehovah favoured you
The time you needed Him most, He was always there for you
No wonder, God brought the twins to life in time to celebrate you
We can not complain nor ask questions but appreciate God for you.

We will miss you!

Tola, I didn't know you well, but I saw you around. Beautiful smile with a beautiful spirit.  Your story pierces my heart. Gone way too soon.  Who are we to question God, He knows best. 

May the grace of God be with your children, they could not have asked for a better mother.

I pray the comforting spirit of God to be with your family and loved ones.

REST IN PEACE.

We bid you Farewell  / Bukky Oshiyemi (Friend of Family )
We do not understand why certain things happen, but what we do is have faith in the Lord.  I did not have the opportunity to get aquainted with you, but from seeing you when I did, I knew you have a beautiful soul.

Such a Rude shock that you left us so soon, but I know your legacy will go on.  The Grace of God shall abide with your children at all times and the good Lord's comforting spirit will see your siblings through.

You will be missed and may your soul rest in eternal perfect peace.
Amen Close
