The last time we spoke was one of the few times I had the privilege of talking to you. It was as if I had known you for years! Your reputation as a child of God precedes you; but God does not care about reputations (right standing with men) - he cares about your heart and soul - and yours was filled with love for God and compassion for His creatures. You have won sis!

My dear schola, it is hard to believe that you're no more with us, but I know for a fact that you're  in heaven resting in the bossom of the almighty. Thank you for being a wonderful sister, friend and colleague. Thank you for the lives you impacted while on earth. You were such a rare gem. Your smiles, laughter and meekness would forever remains. Sleep on sister, till we meet on the resurrection  morning. Goodnight!!!

Rest In Peace

Sis Scholastica, you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for you the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to you on that Day. May God comfort the entire family at this time in Jesus name. Amen

Adieu fellow soldier in Christ

Ore mi.......Babe as we fondly called each other.
Hmmmm.......I will surely miss you no be small.  

Going back to when we first met in Church in Ottawa, back in 2011.  You were serving in the toddler section then and I remember while I was signing my child in, I introduced myself and asked for your name.  You said "my name is Scholastica with such confidence and a beaming smile".  That first impression left an indelible mark in my memory because that was the very first time I heard that name and you said it with such confidence.

Over the years, our friendship grew, even after my family and I moved from Ottawa to other parts in Canada, we both kept in touch.  We would talk over the phone for hours, sometimes even falling asleep on the phone.  One thing I love and admire about you is how well you spoke of the impact  your mother of blessed memory had on you, your sisters and even your father of blessed memory as well.  You, your father and sisters were a close knit family;  even though I had not met them then, from all you shared about them, it was as if I had met them.

Your love for Demola and your two beautiful girls was also no dey joke with that and you no dey let anybody mess with them.  Demola loved and still loves you; the way he cared for you was so admirable and inspiring.  You knew how much Demola loved you and you would say it with such amazement.  Your girls loved you and you knew it and they showed it as the opportunities arose.

You loved Jesus passionately and the way you called God "Daddy" was so sweet, just like how a little girl will fondly call her father. 

You are one strong never backed down for satan, even with the health challenges you faced, you never used that as an excuse not to do your part in service to God and to His kingdom.  Whenever you were faced with health challenges, you would normally say "it is the devil's enemy that is sick and not you".  You just refused to allow satan have the last laugh; you always had the last laugh and emerged victoriously.  Ore mi, your life was and is a blessing not just to me but to so many others and your life also is a challenge to me and others.....never backing down or giving in to the enemy, satan.  It is a grace you carry and it is very contagious.

You were also very passionate about children that suffered from anxiety, depression and were in abusive homes, hence you chose a career in counselling.  You just could not stand to see other children suffer in this way and you did your part to alleviate such suffering through counselling.

You were also a woman of prayer and there were numerous times we would pray together for our homes, our marriages, our children, our nations Nigeria and Canada and other things we felt led to pray about.

You have said to me that I am a true friend and each time I remember that, tears flow from my eyes.  Ore mi, you also are and were a true friend and I thank God for such a divine relationship we found in each other.  I will miss you greatly my gisting friend and sister.....I no longer have any friend to gist with for hours just as you and I gisted.

I am comforted by 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; my sorrow is that you are no longer here with us but I also sorrow with a hope that we shall see you again on the resurrection morning.  My prayer now and I know that this was also your prayer, that our God Almighty will continually strengthen Demola and the girls and carry them on the shadow of His wings.

Love you dearly Ore mi........
