When we reconnected back after 40 years of leaving high school, I was so full of thanks to Almighty God for sparing our lives to meet again, not knowing that it will only last for 3 years. It was a great shock to me to hear that Tola had gone.
I cried like a baby, wishing at the same time for someone to come back that there’s been a mistake. But alas! It is true. Tola is gone from us, to rest. You can never have enough of her. I was looking forward to spending some time with her in London this year, but I’ve been robbed of my childhood friend. We cannot question God, but we take solace in the fact that she’s gone to rest in the bossom of the Lord and in John 11:26.
So, my friend, Eyitolami, sleep well till we meet to part no more.
It’s me your friend
