Tribute BY Joalin Kufeni

Tola was a larger than life personality that impacted everyone she came into contact with in such a positive way. A bright light in the most gloomy of circumstances. Her cheeky smiles and warm hugs will stay with me forever.
She was always willing to give a hand, to correct a mistake and was such an amazing teacher. She would lend an ear, and be a compass to point you in the right direction. Some of the best advice l’ve ever had was from her.
She would hold your hand when you needed support, and always offered a shoulder too. You had no choice but to be drawn to her warmth and selfless love. She went above and beyond…
She was loved by families, adored by the children she looked after and admired by colleagues.
I am shocked and saddened to hear of her passing. She truly will be missed.
Her life left an indelible mark on all our lives.
