  14. To the family of Olayemi, you have have my deepest sympathy in your loss. Death is a difficult situation to accept and it is not natural. Why? God’s original purpose was for the human family to become many, fill the earth, and to live forever upon it (Genesis 1:28)! Humans die because sin and its effects have been passed on to us as Romans 5:12 tells us. Soon, the dead will be restored to perfect life (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:29). It is impossible for God to lie so his purpose will come true!

Leave Your Condolence
