Let me please express my deep sympathy for the loss of Ms. Adeoye. I know she is being sorely missed by her family and friends. Please take comfort in God's promise found at John 5:28, 29, ("Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life ...") -- And also the promise found at Revelation 21:4 that promises, (And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”) Yes, one day, all things that have caused so much pain and sorrow, like the death of Ms. Adeoye, will be a thing of the past. And we are given the bible based hope of receiving our loved ones back again through the promise of the resurrection. May the God of Tender Mercies continue to bring comfort to all who are grieving this loss. With deepest sympathy, P. McLennan, September 12, 2012 Wally & Family, Mom is now in a better place. We thank the Almighty for the gift of long life and the time she got to spend with you and her grand-children. We pray the Good Lord soothe your pain, and buoy your spirits. God bless you. Daniel Dogo-Esekie, August 21, 2012 Rest in the arms of the Lord Mom Wally. You will be missed. Nicolette Anderson, August 19, 2012 Dearly Beloved of our Lord: We mourn with you of your mothers physical absence; but rejoice together that she is with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Maranatha, Joseph and Salomy Mammen, August 17, 2012 We are so sorry to hear of your mother's passing, but we know she is joyfully celebrating her new life in heaven with the Lord Jesus. Wally, we are praying for you and your entire family during this time. Greg and Cathy Gist, August 16, 2012
