"If you don't like the circumstance of your life, change it" Pastor Bola

Pastor B.
I will leave to tell my kids, friends and family's your Hart of benevolent spirit. I don't know you by face to face I have not seen you or meet you in person. But in spirit you know me. You played a big part in my life to see that I'm free from the deep valley (prison in 9ja) I was in. The father in you has led me to be of help to people I don't know. For me not to see you before departing to meet the Lord Almighty. I say God knows why, everything you have done for us all, God almighty will give your family the higher grace of comfort in peace and spirit IJN.
Am still in shock.

Dear Daniel, in the short time we worked together in Ottawa, you became more than a colleague, you were a friend. You were kind and generous. I am very shocked and saddened by this news, but I know you are in a better place. RIP my friend, I pray that your family find strength and patience in this difficult time. You will be most dearly missed. My prayers are with you.

Pastor B,
Thank you for all you did while on earth, your kind smile and all inclusive nature is remarkable. Thank you for honoring my family with your presences countless times, you are missed & were deeply appreciated. I wish I said this to you, and said it more often.

Pastor J,
Thank you for making his life sweet, you are loved & blessed.

I still can't believe this is true...I've known you since Pastor Joseph, Pastor Elizabeth and yourself were the only Pastor in CE Canada; was in Mississauga with you. You're very humble and kind; you would fly in from Ottawa every Wednesday just for service with less than 10 in attendance sometimes and off to airport afterwards only to drive down again for Sunday church. I remember you packing all our music instruments for the venue in 2003 Yonge/Shepherd program before we arrived in church. You're one of a kind, so much to say...goodnight Pastor Bola, gonna miss you. My condolences Pastor J.

Dear Pastor Bola

Our beloved and Dear Pst Bola.served the Lord wholeheartedly. He was very prayerful and devoted to the Lord. His passion and zeal for soul winning was very contagious.

We worked together closely when I was senior pastor in Canada and I testify that he was always available, very zealous unto good works, participated effectively in ministry as Group Pastor and was just exceptional in so many ways. His love for our man of God, senior ministers and our ministry is praiseworthy

We are confident that he's with the Lord whom he loved with so much passion. The Spirit of God will comfort and strengthen Pst Jemine, Timothy & Izabele.

Rest on Dear Brother and general in God's army. We will see soon at the rapture of the church.

Pastor Siji Dara
Zonal Director, Christ Embassy Kenya

IThes 4:13-17
"But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord".

Its really painful that Bola and I were unable to connect since we left school in 1983. It’s now I realize that we were literally both living in Warri in the early 90s but the lack of technology made it impossible to know.

Isaiah 55:10 - 11
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, …..
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Bola and I were classmates in Command Secondary School, Ibadan, a 100% boarding school at the time, between 1978 and 1983 and attended the Student Christian Movement (SCM) fellowship. My significant recollection of Bola was him leading praise and worship. He had a remarkable voice and energy. The choruses were simple and with absolutely no instrument, hand clapping and probably supported by one other person, the praise and worship time will go on and on.

Fast forward 38 years, I now read of Bola’s testimony. The Lord's name be praised for He is true to His word.

I pray that the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit will bring comfort to his dear wife and children.

Our Dear Brother-In-Law
The news of your demise shocked us because you were still in your prime. But we take solace in the fact that God knows best; and we believe that you are now in a better place resting in the peace of God. As we grieve because you have left us so soon, may God Almighty condole the Family that you have left behind. May God grant them the strength to bear this irreparable loss. Adieu until we meet at Jesus’ Feet. Amen.

My family and I are still in shock that it is not a dream but real. My boys, whom you knew very well, are not left out, feeling the impact of your transition to eternal glory. You are a man who never quits until the job is done. Pastor Bola will be forever remembered for your courage, love of people, and Christlike qualities. You are indeed a great exemplar of righteousness and an extraordinary missionary. My admiration of a man of faith, wisdom, and true humility.
Adieu Pastor B! Adieu, my man of God. Forever missed.

Dear Pastor Bola sir.

Oh! I miss you so dearly my Esteemed Pastor, Big Brother and friend. Sir, you were someone I tell everything because you are real and true. You are a Pastor who listened ,cared and had compassion on his brethren. You are a true Man of God, a soul winner, a solution provider, a light, a passionate giver. You are a Christian who practiced true christianity and an ardent follower of our Man of God , Pastor Chris and Christ. Sir, I met and knew you 6years ago in Canada but it seemed like forever.

Pastor sir, your smile and laughter were so sincere from within. Your love for friends turned family so genuine.

Pastor sir, it still like a dream to me that you've relocated truly from this earth to be with the father. It still a dream to me to know that I cannot just pick up my phone to call or chat you up and you will be there to say hello or hi my Sister.
It still a dream that I wouldn't see you during IPPC anymore.

My PBJE sir, thank you for the liquid love of Jesus you showered on me and all the words of Jesus you shared with me while you were here. I will miss you greatly. I love you sir.

Rest on Great Soldier of the Lord,
Rest on Son of Consolation,
Rest on Soul Winner,
Rest on Pastor, Friend & Brother,
Till we meet on the Rapture.

Dear Pastor B,
Pastor B my Father, my Mentor, and my Favorite Pastor. The only one that calls me Iya Omo ( Mother of Children) I will miss you! Thank you for preaching God's word with Boldness. Your spoken blessings has brought healing to many aching souls. You are the true meaning of Love. You love unconditionally.
Thank you for being a blessing to me, Deacon Marcus and our Children. You are in a better place now.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Pastor J. Timothy and Iszabel. May your heart and soul find peace and comfort.
Remembering you Pastor B in our minds and in our hearts
Posted by Rotimi Ajai on March 30, 2021
Pastor Bola, much as I know what the word of God says about what you have done in exercising your choice to be with the Lord which is far better, I think of you telling "O deacon live forever" to which I will respond, "you will never die". Well. you have taken an early flight not choosing to take the first flight. Hmm. Now the Holy Ghost will now have to comfort Pastor Jemine and Timothy and Iszabela with comfort no one else can provide. But then he's a master at that.
Never mind you have chosen a far better option to be with the Lord. While you sleep we await the first flight where we shall surly connect again.
You have lived well and we bear on the torch and baton you have handed over. I love you my brother
Posted by Pastor Godwin Eigbe on March 30, 2021
From the first day I met you to the last day we spoke ( barely one month ago)
You were always a man full of love and compassion. Always wanting to see that everyone is happy and smiling.

I and my family will miss you a great deal. But we can only be glad that you labor of Love was not in vein.. Surely we will see again at the rapture.

Rest well till we see you again.

Just as the realization begins to touch me, it becomes real and clear that you have answered the ultimate call to glory. You came you saw it all and conquered. A legacy unequalled you gave, a true friend, a great leader and a wonderful care-giver. Adios GF 
Posted by Pastor Becky Allison on March 30, 2021
Pastor Bola Jegede always made me laugh. His greeting to me was always about anticipating a ministry of the tummy. Something about venison. Always full of smiles.

As shocked as I was to hear of his departure from the earth, I was comforted by the Lord who reminded me that it's 2, 5 or 9 years before we are caught up together to meet the Lord in the air. The Lord got me to thank Him, for meeting Pastor Bola and for the work he accomplished in the ministry and in the body of Christ. So I saw that we would be celebrating his life, achievement and legacy. Then I thanked the Lord for His comfort with Pastor Jemine and the kids. I am thankful to the Lord for a life well spent.

See you again soon PastorB, where we the saints will meet again to depart no more but to ever be with the Lord.

Pastor, I still find it hard to believe you have transitioned; It is very evident you made tremendous impact in many lives which cannot easily be quantified in words.
I will never forget the services we had with you in CE Ottawa last summer; your teachings in those services took my understanding of God’s word to a new Dimension.

Thank you for the life of Love, Impact and Service you exemplified. I love you dearly Sir. You will be greatly missed, but I take comfort in the scriptures and confident that we will meet again in Heaven at the Rapture
Posted by Nathan Salabiaku on March 29, 2021
Thank you for impacting and empowering so many lives. Pastor Bola, I will never forget the series you had taught last summer at CE Ottawa with Pastor Joseph on exceptionalism. Thinking of you in the past is the hardes thing. But, I know that Our Father is proud of the mighty you have done for His Kingdom here on hearth.
Pastor Bola, you will be missed sir.

To the general, God’s own child, an angle sent by God to this world to spread the word, show kindness, be a listener, extend a helping hand, show love to all and be a faithful ambassador of Lord. Is and was pastor Bola Jegede. Every thing he did in life was done to perfection. He did not fail God at all. With pride and confidence he served God. This he left behind for us all to continue in his footsteps as he now have a bigger and new assignment with God Almighty. Knowing and believing this, I accept with heavy and massive pain in my heart that he is resting with the MASTER who sent him and he is in PEACE! He was a great guy, husband, father, brother, friend and family to all. His kindness, love and care for all is unimaginable and this has been his identity from way back at school(Auchi polytechnic) I will miss you brother, keep smiling down on us, Rest In Peace.

I still find it hard to believe that you are not here. I love you so much Pastor Sir. The way you ministered the Word was different and excellent. I always enjoyed seeing you at CE Ottawa. The Wednesday services you had with Pastor Joseph were definitely one of my best times at church. I love you so much Sir. Till we meet again in heaven.

Pastor Bola, you were one of the people that held my hands in early days in Canada. You were not only a Pastor to me , you became my Big Brother, someone I can run to. Pastor Bola, with a heart of gold, loves unconditionally, your matter becomes his matter. He will follow you through till resolution. He's never weary of doing good. You are truly a conveyor of the love and excellence of Jesus. Your love and passion for the Master is contagious.
I am one of the many lives you touched with the love of Jesus. A true soldier for Christ . I salute you Sir. We will definitely see on the resurrection morning.

This definitely hit hard. Part of me wishing it was a dream or movie, that is unreal. You had a great impact on all who you came across. Thank you for your words of wisdom, helping me realise the steps I needed to take in different areas of my life. I always loved listening to you and watching you as you ministered with God's spirit. To me it was always amazing and I desired to be used of God similarly. You are definitely missed, but I rejoice because I have chosen to believe The Word, The Word that gives assurance of believers meeting again in heaven.

Pastor Bola,

I didn't know you personally but each time I heard you preach, I knew you had a firm grip of the Word. Your preaching always left an impact on my life. The news of your passing is a great shock. May your soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.
Posted by Pastor Monica Zunny-Abu on March 29, 2021
Pastor Bola Jegede, it's so hard to take this in, gallant soldier of Christ rest on. You were a force to reckon with from Christ Embassy Warri in the early 90s you were intentional about the faith.

You yearned for the spiritual in all things, you made me sing in the choir as you always made sure you gave me a word of prophecy everytime I ministered.
One day you said to me we will do a duet together, I thought to myself you believed in me.

The days you worked in Maxine Lotus in Warri were days of grandeur for us as you made sure management opened the doors for us to have Christian meetings in one of the finest Chinese restaurants in Warri then.

I saw clips of you when you dedicated baby Jayden Soyele in Canada and I was excited to let Bro. Olumide know that we were friends in Christ Embassy Warri back then.

Rest on mighty man of valour, when I read your wife's tribute-pastor Jemine, I forced a smile and thought to my self he sure ruled his house well.

We will continue the race until the trump sounds and the dead in Christ shall rise first and we that are alive and remain in the faith will be caught up in the air- oh the rapture of the church many things will be settled then...

My Pastor B, mighty MOG.
There are no words that can explain the beauty of knowing and serving in the houseof God under a true leader and exceptional teacher. You are a light that caused many other lights to shine brightly. The presence of the Holy Spirit was always evident and shown in all that you did. Thank you for being an exceptional father, teacher, counselor and conveyor of the Love and Wisdom of God. You taught me many things MOG! And I will never forget the teachings and the expressions of strength, power, character and love that exuded from you Sir. All things are to be done with love and the purest intent of the heart, submitting all my ways unto God and to remember that the Grace of God to produce is always suffient no matter the circumstance. A life of prayer is the life I walk, always being in communion with the Spirit of God for it is the most important thing. I understand through you that we are not called to love as we journey through life but to become love in its full expression, because as he is so are we in this world.
Thank you it has truly been an honour to call you My Pastor, a Father in the house of the living God.

Forever grateful.

My beloved Pastor Bola. You were a loving, kind, and easy to speak with Man of God. You were always smiling and interested in how we and our families were doing. I had so much things to say to you, and ask you, but I didn’t visit your branch. For this I am so sorry, even for me.
I missed you so very much. You will forever be missed! Thanks for your love towards God’s children, you were truly God’s shepherd, who led his sheep. May your soul and the souls of the faithful departed rest in eternal peace IJMN amen

My dear brother and friend of over 3 decades. Thank you for your unparalleled conviction of and commitment to the gospel. From our days in BLW fellowship in Auchi on 1993 and as classmates, to date you maintained an unwavering commitment to this gospel.
Thank you for setting many on the right path, the path of righteousness.
You may have been translated today, but you live on, your words, your examples, your results still take giant steps and announce you everywhere.
We have had cause to collaborate on helping with projects on behalf of our common friends, the speed with which you respond and always willing to help is amazing.
Back in our class forum, everybody has something positive to say though you hardly even come up to speak there.
You are a man of great impact.
I salute you PB, Jegeduz, Jeguz, GF
You have won and we are happy you have gone ahead to be with the Lord.
No one, your lovely wife, children, brethren etc has lost anything and not comfortless either.
We celebrate your life!! 
You live on great soldier, brother and friend.

Pastor B.
This is how you closed every meeting I attended with you.

Your reverence for God was unmistakable. Your passion for ministry truly inspiring and your love for people was so genuine.

You made everyone feel special and welcome. You had fond names for everyone. It's impossible to meet you and leave with out laughing out loud from a joke or comment that you make with so much ease.

At the same time your have an air of power and authority, we know to sit up and be on task around you.
My husband and I call you Man of Order! You don't take nonsense!

Always the first to arrive! Your punctuality is admirable.

Pastor B, we all miss you so much! and you made sure of that by the way you lived your life.

You are truly Unforgettable. 

I pray with each passing day we all embrace comfort and peace as we remember the beautiful moments we had with you Sir.

I pray especially for Pastor J and the children that they experience indescribable peace, joy and comfort as they think of you.

Thank you Sir for sharing yourself with us. ❤

Dear Pastor B,
It took a while to write this as the pain was just too much. You are now with the master that you loved passionately.
You pursued him relentlessly and lived only for the kingdom.
You were a source of strength, a reliable, amiable and dependable MOG to many including myself and family. You have now finished your work here and resting with your Lord.
I will miss you dearly but will meet again at the rapture.

My heart is saddened.
He was one of my best Patrons. I remember your kind words and respect you always accorded me. I cry because I didn't say goodbye and I can't say goodbye. You were humble and caring like a father.
You walked into Benin Cafe on May 30th 2020 and asked me if you could pray with me, because you saw me crying as my mom was dying in Nigeria and I said yes and you did. We became friends like big brother to little sister.
Pastor Daniel Jegede is gone?! Your kindness will never be forgotten. You touched the lives of many who came your way. My heart felt condolences to your wife,children and congregation. 
RIP Mr Daniel as I normally call u. Rest in Peace

Dear PeeBee

It’s with so much pain I write this tribute....
I was going to avoid it cos I was expecting to hear the news was a lie.
Pastor, this is too hard to gasp. You were too kind and good to go.
If only tears could bring you back.

I’m grateful to the Lord for the opportunity to have met you, know you and be loved by you.

Thanks for everything Pastor.
You were always there to help me when I got new assignments, taught me things about my job, you supported me, Cheered me on, played with me, teased me, Prayed with me and for me.
You were always excited about my progress in Ministry and Career.

Thanks for your impact in my life. 

I will miss you so much Pastor. So much. So much.

The Lord comfort Pst J, Tim and Isabelle and to everyone of us who came in contact with you one way or the other.

I am finally able to write this. I saw you 6 days before I heard the news, it was unbelievable.

The moment I heard the news, for the first time, I wondered how the disciples of Jesus felt after his crucifixion. It was a moment of hopelessness. But thank God for His word, I took courage in the scripture that says we do not sorrow like them that have no hope. (1Thess 4:13 - But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope).

I haven't lost because heaven's gain has become my resolve to do more.

Thank you for bringing out the best in me, for teaching me God's word, for making issues seem so light, and indeed as you said, so they turned out to be. Thank you for praying for me and my family. You always called and prayed for everyone on our birthdays - never for once missed.

I miss you Pastor B and I thank God for the Full and great life that you lived.

My dearest Pastor B!!! It's taken me so long to pen down words as I'm still trying to process this news! Is it true???!! I'm so glad that I know you. You are always so kind and genuinely interested in my wellbeing each time I see or speak to you. The wisdom of God that excudes from you is second to none. I always look forward to your ministrations, with rapt attention, pen and paper in toll to write down all those words of wisdom and prophesies. You have a unique way of communicating God's truths. You've impacted my life immersely and I am so grateful. Your liquid love towards God, our man of God and God's people is so tangible. Your honesty, kindness, gentle yet strong presence, intelligence, funny jokes will be missed. Your legacy, however, lives on. The expression of your love towards Pastor J, Timothy and Iszabel shines so brightly and is undeniable. You sure did fight the good fight of faith. It's not 'goodbye' but 'see you soonest'. I LOVE YOU dearest Pastor B.
Pastor J, Timothy and Iszabella, may God's Spirit strengthen and comfort you now and always. You are in my heart and I love you.

Dear Pastor B,

I never imagined not seeing or hearing from you again. Your exit was too sudden.

You became a father to Naa from her very first contact with you, and a great blessing to my family and I.

Sans Pareil. Selfless. A rare kind. Very loving. Always thoughtful. Caring. A source of encouragement.

You never turned anyone down; readily available and willing to help no matter how inconveniencing it was to you.

I recall coming to Toronto for Healing School in August 2017. You paid for my hotel accommodation and car rental in full without my knowledge because you wanted me to stay away from the distractions at home and remain focused in prayer to receive my healing. That act of love and kindness will remain with me forever.

Thank you for impacting Naa's life. You were a blessing to her. 

I celebrate you Pastor. Your exemplary life. The many lives you've touched globally and still are even now. What a unique man of God!. A definition of grace, faith and unconditional love. 

Pastor J, Timothy and Iszabel, be strengthened and comforted by the Holy Ghost

Rest well dear Pastor
Naa and I miss you dearly

Bro Bola,
This is one difficult write up for me. I wish it was to serve another purpose other than this. Hmmmm. You were a rallying point for us all especially after Dad's death. You cared and supported us all. I vividly recall the wisdom that you displayed when we were all down and broken after Dad's passing. You were a blessing to your family by orientation and procreation. You certainly will be sorely missed.
Your memory is blessed sir.

My Pastor B, My Pastor B, where art thou? This is me asking you the same way you always say "My Angela, My Angela, where art thou? In this case, I know where you are. I know you are in a better place. I never imagined I would be writing this.  Even in my wildest dreams.

From the first day I met you which has not been so long, but feels like forever, you made me a part of your family. You called me "your own", and told me "you were not going anywhere". So this was not the plan. You loved selflessly and you were very mindful of us. Ethan calls you his best friend. I know you are still mindful of us, because you live on.

The love and care you have for the brethren is undeniable. You are peculiar, extraordinary and different. You are a light and still burn brightly. Someone told me, to see you as an Angel still with me. And I choose to see that. I miss your physical presence, but I choose to close my eyes and see you.

I am grateful to God for bringing me your way. I love you very dearly. Thank you for all you taught me, and for all you are to me. (I refuse to use past tense, because you still are).

I pray God continually strengthens Pastor J, Timothy and Iszabel. I know, you know they would be fine. We are comforted knowing your life was for the glory of God and we shall see you soon, very soon when the Lord appears. The time is short. Till then, Ethan and I would always miss you and hold you close to our hearts❤
Posted by Chinwe Olele on March 28, 2021
The news of your relocation to the other side of Heaven came to me with great shock. My only solace is that you've gone to a better place and we'll be meeting shortly at the rapture of the Church; when the dead in Christ shall rise first and we that are alive and remain shall be caught up to be with the Lord.

You were a great militant for Jesus Christ.
I can't forget the several outreaches we held back then in Warri as my PCF leader, where souls come running to the alter to give their hearts to Jesus Christ just hearing you share your salvation testimonies.
Neither will I forget how on my wedding day in 1998, some school mates of mine who attended the ceremony gave their lives to Jesus Christ just seeing you serving the Lord Jesus so passionately.

Pastor B, you were such a loving, selfless, passionate Man of God.
May God Comfort Pst Jennine, Tim, Atinuke and us with the comfort of the Spirit till we meet to part no more.

You're forever in our heart.
See you at the resurrection morning.

I am Frogy Wendy Nangoro all the way from Namibia On 10/04/2011 I came to Christ Embassy Toronto South. As the pastor asked all visitors to raise up to give them a warm welcome i stood and my beloved Pastor B asked me where my bible is, I told him i didn't have a bible,he asked the secretary to give me a bible which I have been using up today. During the two years i was in Canada Pastor took care of me he told me if I need anything i should tell him. He taught us the word and he had a unique way of presenting the word I had learned a lot from his teaching. He always said if you have nothing worth dying for you haven't started living...he also taught me who I am in Christ nobody has impacted my life like him those two years had made me a different person just because of his teachings and his beautiful wife Pastor J. I will observed other kids in the church but I saw Timothy and Izebella and i will be why are this kids different the had respect and the were full of love my conclusions was they really have good parents. I saw the Love of God personified and he had unwavering faith in the finish work of Jesus. He taught me the law of sowing and reaping . I was born again but i did know much about that. The day i miss service he will call me to asked me why i was not present i will sometimes tell him someone browed my bus card,He will say i should have told him so he could have sent one of the brethren. He always spoke highly of his beautiful wife Pastor J and that was amazing. I will text him occasionally to appreciate honour his love and the care him and wife has lavished upon me during two my years in Canada  and he will tell me I still love you my Daughter. The day i told him I didn't get my paperes therefore i am going back home, He didn't want me to go back but he said if thats what you want go may the Lord go and be with you always. He then gave me his personal tablets which i am still using up today. My friends always asked me why I have the tablet for so long and i will say it can never break I was given by a Pastor therefore it carries the anointing.
Inclusions I will say Pastor B was and is Still God gift to be he has impacted my life in a incredible way in a very short time.

May Our Lord Jesus Strengthens our beautiful and loving Pastor Jay and my little Sibling Timothy and Izebella. May he give you peace that excedd human understanding and the assurance of our faith in Jesus Christ is our Joy knowing he is with the Lord now.. 1 Corinthians 15:12-22

I love you what a glorious transition from glory even to glory.

Pastor B was as selfless as people come.
He was caring and loving and always went the extra mile for the people in his life.
He made countless sacrifices and even though it was inconvenient for him, he was always cheerful and happy about it.
PastorB will never be in our past but always in our hearts. 

I’ve never met anyone like Pastor B. Such a light.
He had so much love for God and that showed in how he interacted with people.
I thank God that I got to know you like I did. I thank God for the countless rides you gave me from Ottawa to Toronto and the time we got to spend together then. I thank you for treating me like a daughter and loving my family and I the way you did.
Thank you for answering all my questions, praying with and for me and being so mindful of me and so involved in my life.
I also thank God that I know where you are now and that we will all meet again one day.

I love you, OlaoluwaPastorB

It's so difficult to accept this, it hurts so only solace is that I know you are in a better place resting in the presence of God. Indeed, you have fought a good fight, you have finished your course and you preserved the faith. Thank you my father's son for accepting the call to serve in ministry, thank you for winning souls and depopulating the kingdom of darkness, thank you for impacting our world the way you did and thank you for loving me and my family the way you did. I love you sir and I miss you so dearly. Rest on God's general, we shall meet to part no more.....Goodnight soldier, salute.

Pastor B.
I will leave to tell my kids, friends and family's your Hart of benevolent spirit. I don't know you by face to face I have not seen you or meet you in person. But in spirit you know me. You played a big part in my life to see that I'm free from the deep valley (prison in 9ja) I was in. The father in you has led me to be of help to people I don't know. For me not to see you before departing to meet the Lord Almighty. I say God knows why, everything you have done for us all, God almighty will give your family the higher grace of comfort in peace and spirit IJN.
Am still in shock.

Dear Daniel, in the short time we worked together in Ottawa, you became more than a colleague, you were a friend. You were kind and generous. I am very shocked and saddened by this news, but I know you are in a better place. RIP my friend, I pray that your family find strength and patience in this difficult time. You will be most dearly missed. My prayers are with you.
