I'M FREE

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God has chosen for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I've now found peace at the end of day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Oh yes, these things, I too will miss.
But be not burdened with times of sorrow
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.

My life's been full, I 've savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seems all too brief;
Don't shorten yours with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and peace to thee,
God wanted me now-He set me free

WHAT IS LIFE? The life of man/woman is a long march through the Night. Surrounded by invisible foes; tortured by wearies and pains....towards a Goal that few can Hope to reach. And where none may tarry long. One by one, as we march, our comrades Vanish from our Sight, seized by the Silent Orders of Omnipotent DEATH....brief and Powerless is Man's/Woman's LIFE. We miss you but GOD needed you Most!

Ya Agie needed to rest and was called back home a year ago. May we all continue to hold her precious memories for a life well lived. May God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference. May we continue to salute her courage and celebrate her achievements. Rest in peace dear loved one. Signed: Dr. Samuel Yisa Rumala (uncle) (For the family)

My treasure,that's what i call you,its still hard to believe you left me. its really hard sis, i recall you saying " i have never heard of someone who has our kind of uncle, and you said you will be that kind of aunt to all your nephews, and i smiled and said you already are, it hurts really bad when Adriel saw your pix and said "big mama", and no one could explain why he don't get to take ice-cream and goodies any more. Your impact in my life,words can't describe, i was begging God for a miracle, and was so angry he didn't hear me, but now i know having you in my life was all the miracle i needed. I love you, so much..................miss you much more.

To the loving family and friends of the late dear Agnes, I have had the honor of working with a dear colleague, her uncle Dr. Samuel Rumala. Although I did not get to meet her, knowing the high, invincible quality of her family ensures that Agnes' contributions on Earth were beyond sincere, beyond altruistic. Her uncle Dr. Sam always portrays and represents these values at every opportunity, every turn of this city of New York. I wish peace, if this is at all possible, on her family and vast circle of those I'm sure she influenced!
Posted by Samuel Ogunleye on 21st October 2016
We cannot understand the reason why, but God understand. We love her but God love her more. May Gog comfort the families, and help the children. I also pray that God should stop the early death in the family.

DEATH The ultimate Mystery. The silent conspiracy of Nature. The beginning of New Life. To avoid Living is to die. We all fear Death because it's beyond Understanding. We miss you dearly.

My Beloved Ya Agie from Nnagi Ladi I thank God for many reasons especially for life well spent before your departure from this world. The memories we have shared will never fade away.Your life was not about catching up, but it was about staying one step ahead. Ya Agie, as l always called you. I will miss your gentle soft voice, smile, deep caring and generosity. Your simplicity of spirit was so compelling that I can hear your skillful voice. You are someone special we can't replace. You also left a great vacuum being one of few women in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Saying goodbye is never easy, it's the hardest thing to do, but what hurts even more is not having the chance to see you on your last day. You will always be missed and l know you are resting in a better place where you do not have to go through pain. Keep resting until we meet again. Mrs Florence Yisa-Rumala (Nnagi Ladi), New York, USA.

Ya – Agie, highly intelligent, dutiful and strong-willed. Your independent mindedness and commitment to any identified task/goal can be infectious. We are consoled by the fact that though your sojourn here was brief, you indeed made a mark & left a legacy for those who knew you & worked closely with you. We love you, but God loves you more. Continue to rest on, till we meet to part no more. Adieu! Uncle Emmanuel Mamman & family

Ah! Its hard to believe that you are no more, Ya-Agnes. Your glorious exit has impressed incurable pains in our heart. The short time I knew you, it was like knowing you for numbers of years. I wish I could turn back the hands of time and bring you back to life, your departure was a painful one. I love you but Jesus loves you more... Goodnight ma, till we meet at the Lord's feet...Rest on.... Damaris Dzuma Tsado, Minna, Niger State, Nigeria.

Tribute to a Cousin Ya-Agie as she is popularly called was a very important person to us. She was hardworking and loves as many that came her way. I remember her father who is a brother to my dad (both late) once described her as a terrific mathematician to me during one of my visits to them. No wonder, as a woman, she studied engineering. Ya -Agie's ailment did not prevent her from doing her job, undertaking household chores, performing and engaging in other social responsibilities.Again, no wonder, many people did not know what she passed through before her death. The exit was indeed so abrupt. Ya-Agie is sadly missed but not forgotten. Rest in peace my cousin. Paul Ibrahim Mamman.

It's hard to understand Why God takes those we love. Does He need them more than we do, In Heaven up above? No one on earth can pretend To know what's in God's plan. All we can do is take it on faith And trust we'll see our loved ones again. We miss you Aunty Agi.
Posted by Michael Seth on 11th October 2016
This for me has been a tough moment of reality. Ya Agi was one person I almost naturally accepted as an Elder Sister. Her loss feels like an amputation. I am not sure how much longer we will bear this burden of hurts about this grievous loss, but one thing I am certain about is that, it will not last in a few days, weeks, months or years. She was a Woman of flawless character, with an unusual beautiful and radiant spirit. To her families and friends, we stand by you at this hour, and wishing it can be said in a more different way: please, take heart. Be comforted by the Comfort of the Holy Spirit, through the Name of Jesus. I will miss you, Ya Agi. Always. From "Ya Mike" (so you called me).

My deepest condolences to the Rumala family and their family. I did not have the pleasure to meet Agnes, but just by reading all the heartfelt messages I can see she was a beautiful woman inside and out. May God give you the strength to deal with the loss. She will continue to live in your hearts forever.

TRIBUTE TO MY YATHEO God brought you on 29th May, 2004 as help meet for me. You contributed a lot to what I am today by the grace of God. You understood me more than myself. You were very accommodating as evidenced in Joseph Haji Tsado, whom you recently made one of your next of kin, and Alice Jiya. You strengthened me in weakness and my issues were your issues. You always made my wad-rote and you were my strong support, and my courage both spiritually and physically. You taught me to look up to God for all family needs and to be contented with whatever he provides. Times of disagreements that tore other families apart are to a great extent instrumental in building ours. In the midst of all these, you suddenly left me alone. I love you but God loves you more. Adieu. YOUR HUSBAND, Dr. THEOPHILUS TSADO

My condolence to the entire families of Rumala and Tsado having lost Mrs. Anges Bodi Sode-Shinni Tsado at her prime age. We are all on our journey, and doing the works assigned to us by God. We are his/her spiritual arms to torch everyone of us. It was sad that on October 8, 2016, Mrs. Agnes Tsado suddenly and untimely finished her on earth than we expected. May God be with all those she left behind (known and unknown to me) and grant them longer lives. May her Soul Rest In Peace. Mabadeje G. Demu
