Sometimes it seems like death comes for the best of the lot on earth…
Today I learnt of the death of onome duvie
A beautiful intelligent girl who graduated doctor at the university of benin
Her father was a consultant in same hospital before his death about some say five or more years ago…
I never knew him.
Her mother died sometime in my final year 2008 or before 2007 when she was in fourth year medicine
She was a staunch christian and dedicated nccmds(Nigerian Christian and dental medical students) member.
Onome was quiet,soft spoken and the kind of girl you would fall in love with and marry..
Today I heard she had been in intensive care unit and passed away..
A prayer chain was started for her 3days ago..
I never heard about it..
Possibly because I’ve been absorbed in my own life…
But she has paSsed on..
She had systemic lupus erythematosus..
Funny that I just got off duty and was teaching some medical students about same about an hour ago..
Onome is with God
I am most certain..
Once again…I would ask us all..
Where is your life headed??
A child died in my arms last night..
Oxygen connected..fluids going in
Pumping away at the heart
He still left..
Many leave the earth
But death has no sting and the grave no victory
When they go to be with God
The salvation of God has ensured this one has gone to be with the lord..
An orphan who has left four siblings behind
May God change their story
And may his light continually shine on their path..
In life and in death onome,you remain a victor..
May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
