God Took His Angel Away

September 28, 2009 my dad quietly left me behind to be with the Lord. I took comfort in my mum. An angel in flesh.

No one ever had a bad word to say about her. Stern and born a head mistress but she had love thoroughly coursing through her veins, dishing help left right and center.

She ate through books like a proper bookworm. Always working. Super inquisitive.

God felt we have had it too good. Maybe we were getting too comfortable to think she was mortal like us. He suddenly and forcibly reminded us that she’s more of His than of us.

So on March 15, 2012, God took my mother away. Never for me to see her again. Never to share a moment with her again.

I’m sad. Cranky. But yet grateful in the life she led.

When I grow up, I want to be like her.

Sleep well. DT Olowe.

From 6 then 5. And all other numbers you can think of

    Death is inevitable, we will all pay the price one day but when,where and how no one knows. May our works speak well of us after we have gone. Sure her good works are speaking for her even before her death. May God grant her eternal rest and I pray to God to comfort you all. It is well.

    Did not meet her in person, but heard so much about her. The love she gives, has to be that of an angel. Her good deeds lives on, she died a worthy example.

    The way you always ask after my mum tells me how much you loved yours.
    “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal”
    Adedeji, l know God almighty will heal every heartache that comes with the passing away of your loving Mum. Sweet memories of her will keep you going. It is well.
