Sif King – “Osayi has passed away! ……… We just had a conversation yesterday. She was pleasant and caring as usual. Never did it cross my mind that yesterday would be our last conversation. If I had known I would have told her she was a pleasant and caring soul. I would have told her that I love her and that I appreciate her as she was there to support me during my fathers funeral through her kind caring words. Death totally has to be easy RIP my friend and sister”.

Kela Alale – “Osayi your demise has brought deep thought into my mind. The circumstances surrounding it. Your wedding in just a few days to come. It brings to mind the song by Alanis Morrisette. Ironic— “its like rain oh your wedding day”………, “….you win a lottery and you die the next day”. Hmmm what a bad taste of event at the end of the year. We lost a few good people, Onajite Onajite, we had not gotten over the shock, You again? Why. Life O’ life”.
Uche Odozi – “I remember my conversation with you in 2006 when I was broken you gave me hope and you made it a point of duty to check on me anytime we were on shift I will never forget that part you that is warm and loving. Why did you have to die?????? You will be missed and may your sweet soul continue to rest in peace. May the almighty console your family amen”.
It is obvious the deceased was well loved by her family and friends.
