Goodnight sis,

Shared by Sandra Oyugbo on March 28, 2020
The words still fail me. Who can ever be like you to me? The pain is worse because I wasn't there to say goodbye. I don't want to say goodbye. I will say our usual after our evening visits....Good night Sis.

AUNTY NORAH : ENDLESS SUPPORT

Shared by Leo Omoseebi on March 21, 2020
I met Aunty Norah through Theatre15 Unilag reunion activities. One was at a play at the Lagos Theatre festival of 2018 held at Freedom Park Lagos and another was at our beach party. She had come with her friends to support one of ours doing the theatre festival . You cannot forget her easy smile and large heart. She went to any length for those she cared for and i remember i attended to some enquiries  about the national theatre because she was planning an excursion for her school kids. I had the pleasure of meeting her son who she felt might catch a thing or two from us talking. So it was with the rudest shock i saw the notice of her demise. You left too damn soon Aunty. I wont forget how you reached out to us when we were raising funds for one of our "stage of life" alumnus... From all i hear you fought valiantly and no one guessed anything was amiss. Adieu and may the good Lord grant your husband and your kids the fortitude to bear this ... Thank you for the light you shared. I glimpsed it and i won't ever forget it. 

TOO EARLY TO SAY GOODNIGHT

Shared by Sunkanmi OLOWO on March 13, 2020
Your body lies down, your soul returns to your maker
You left your smiles on our mind, your warmth in our heart
Your love all around us
You fought this last fight with bravery with faith with hope
Infectious hope that we all thought we had won!
No, the Lord won, He needs you more and wants you home!
Your smiles back to your maker, your courage you taught us so much
Your simplicity, your contentment, your bravery, your sweetness and your faith
The legacies you left behind, the thousands of children you impacted!
While you prepared, we did not prepare!
No wonder you left peacefully, smiling away from the pains while we cried
Rest on with your maker Nora!
Just too early but we say goodnight! 
Rest in the Lord's bosom



 

AUNT NORAH THE BRAVE HEART

Shared by Pedro Edovia on March 12, 2020
It was only just yesterday we sat at the table of the house warming at Uncle Premier's. You had the most beautiful table, surrounded by the most beautiful people. You had a few words of pain to share but much words of hope and expectations. We talked for a bit until your friends came. We said a little prayer and I excused you so you can have some intimate time with friends. I was encouraged by your strength and your zest for life. I left with assurance that the story will change for the better. I saw you again in front of the school looking so energetic and I praised God for you. Leaving you smiling, little did I know that was the last time I'd set my eyes on you. I was hit by the sad news a day after you passed. I felt so much sorrow as I had prayed everyday for you since, only to hear you still passed. While talking to God today, He told me that you kept the faith till the end and the battle was not lost but won and even if we don't see you here anymore you're in perfect peace with Him now and forever. I have mixed feelings Ma. You're missed here but at home with Jesus. So I'll choose to say thank you for your encouragement and thank God for keeping you in His presence in forever. You were victorious because of your brave heart. So rest now Ma, you're in a much better place now.

A Tribute to Norah Idornige

Shared by Tina Ebuehi on March 12, 2020
My dear sister and friend. Words fail me. I prayed for your recovery and was looking forward to celebrating your thanksgiving mass but God had other plans.
You were such a loving and kind hearted person. You bore no grudges and always had something good to say about everyone. I learnt a lot from you on parenting, relationships, marriage and a whole lot more. I always looked forward to your gist as there was always some take home lessons. There' was never a dull moment with you sis.
Indeed a good tree does not remain in the forest for long. You left us so soon and  will surely be missed by all.
May God comfort you husband , children , parents and siblings who you loved so dearly.
Eternal rest grant unto her o Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her .
Rest in peace Norah Idornige till we meet at Jesus's feet.
