Jade!

My one and only junior sister. You were indeed blessed and a blessing indeed! You made me proud of you even as you took me as big sis and shared thoughts together. I didn't know it would be this short but I thank God for every second from childhood when we read for exams together played together prayed together laughed together cried together and even dedicated our lives to Christ same day . I appreciate your exemplary disciplined cool calm collected and organised personality and thank God you were my sister! You are greatly missed but I take solace in the fact that you made it!

 Jade
I saw you last in December when you came with your family to spend Christmas. In the words of my 5yr old daughter "that was the best time of my life", those words echoed our thoughts as a family. You were so full of life that it became contagious to whoever you came in contact with.

I often get so caught in my busy schedule that I don't keep in touch but that is not you, you always took time out to call and even now I can still hear your voice saying " uncle seyi" as you fondly refer to me at the other end of the line.

You carried yourself with grace, poise and your beauty radiated from the inside. You weren't perfect but then who is.

Your passing still seems so unreal that I am like Thomas who said until he sees the hole in Jesus' palms and side, he will not believe His resurrection, maybe it will hit home when I finally set my eyes on your corpse and I hope I am able to keep it together when  l do.

It hurts to say bye, so I wont, rather I say sleep on till we meet on the resurrection day, hopefully then I will be able to ask Jesus why he made your sun set so early.

Smiling Jadesola! Jadeski!

From the first time we met, she had always been smiling. That is the one thing I will miss the most. Her beautiful smile.

Over the past few days since she left us, many are saddened and many are remembering her. Remebering her as "lovely, beautiful, gentle, an angel on earth, God fearing, always helpful". Yes, she was all those things and much more.  And she was my very good friend. Not many that I met in Secondary School have had a lasting impression on me, Jade was an exception, only God had other plans for her. She wrote in my Year Book when we graduated ISI, "A ring is round and has no end, that's how long I'll be your friend". Jade kept those words.

I remember our times spent together visiting each other while growing up in Ibadan. Catching "danfo" to go visit other friends!  Lol. Now I wish we had done more of that. I will forever cherish those memories.

Although in adulthood we were separated by miles and oceans, Jadesola was always in my heart. She made it a point to keep our lines of communication open, sharing wedding pictures, exchanging stories about our children and planning on future meet ups.

Everyone in my family knew who Jadesola was and she even became family. When my mother visited Abuja, Jadesola made it a point to visit and spend time with her, even though I was not there. My mother was moved by the gesture and will forever remember Jadesola as "very nice and respectful lady".  

If I had known that our last meet up in Abuja was the last time I saw you, i would have hugged you tighter and even stayed longer. Thank God for your little ones. I know you are now an angel watching over them and us all.

Jadesola, sweet Jadesola.

I miss you so much already. I pick up the phone to send you a text and then remember you are no longer here! Your departure has been a painful one to accept. But I know that it is the Lord's doing and he had a greater need for you so I leave it to Him. Rest in Peace my dear friend. Rest in Peace, until we meet again.

Your friend
