Life is a gift, treasure it, cherish it, and enjoy it. On this the day 4th November Oluwasesan finished his course on this life sooner than expected. The last indeed came first, he was the last born of six siblings.
I remember his last birthday: He turned Twenty One and wanted to celebrate it in style with family and friends. Sessy boy as I remember calling him sometimes came to my home in Ibadan to invite us for this birthday bash in Lagos! But I couldn’t make it because I was under strict orders of my doctors to be on bed rest back then. I wish I had attended that 21st birthday. It was like a goodbye to everyone he held dare. One month later the sad event happened. On the 5th of October 2015 he would have being 30years old, a grown man.
Though his life was for a brief 21years, he was a young man full of life. I am grateful for the years God gave us to share together. We would like you to know that Dad, mum and the rest of us have all grown and our family is larger. God’s mercy, comfort and love covered and held us through it all. We miss you dearly but most importantly we know that you went away to heaven to be with the Lord. Heaven is made of streets of gold, peaceful and devoid of pain. Therefore we are comforted and hopeful that someday we will all meet rejoicing at the Saviour’s feet.
Life is short, live it well; and while enjoying it connect with the one who knows your beginning and end. For us as a family Jesus makes life worth living!
