All day I’ve been so numb, words fail me, I cannot begin to find the words to truly express how I feel. You mean that this is not a post to wish you happy birthday sis, you mean I will never hear your voice again? You made me a promise, I’ll always laugh and you’ll always make the same promise every time. You always called in to check, you anticipated even more than I did and now I can’t find the words sis, so you won’t do what you said? You left too soon. what memory do I share? Is it from secondary school? “Senior Ibidun”, I always teased you about loving Ope more, you were her school mother and the first time I met you in Idia house, I remember just like yesterday, your beauty, your humility, your kindness, through the years you have been a part of my life. You always assumed the “big sis” role, always asking what you can do for me, for us, where you can come in. When there’s an unpleasant story out there about me, even if I said I was fine you still checked in, you kept praying for me. My big sis the prayer warrior, you will be missed, thank you for all your prayers, you won’t get to read this but I hope I made you feel appreciated. You lived, you loved, you served, you left so much behind but I know the God who called you is faithful. I pray for Pastor Ituah and the kids, I pray for mummy, your time on this side is done now, rest on sis, rest in the arms of the comforter, the healer, the one who holds life in his hands. This hurts so much, I love you and I’m glad I never dropped the phone without saying those words to you. Good night big sis. ❤️
