In memory of my Dear Friend, Omoye Omoike-Okuribido. You’d have been 28 tomorrow.

Omoye, her husband & I on her wedding day

Omoye, if you were around, we’d have been making plans for your 28th birthday for tomorrow. With all anticipation and joy and I, smiling from ear to ear like I’m the celebrant.

I met Omoye at my work place but she sooner became more of my friend than my colleague. She was younger than I but was so mature that I found myself asking her opinions on serious decisions. She was so full of love, so calm, so gentle and so beautiful in the inside. Her love was pure.

When I met Omoye, she wasn’t married yet but she was engaged. She loved her fiancé with a passion and it was so obvious, she made me want to fall in love. She treated her fiancé with so much respect and love, I learnt from her.  She was never shy too shy to show love, she was so inspiring.

I got this gist from and I'm pasting it just as it appeared there. 
A spokesperson for the Horst Schmidt Klinik in Wiesbaden, Germany has revealed that the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan was in a bad state of health when she arrived at the hospital last week.
The hospital’s official, who confirmed that initial records showed that Mrs. Patience Jonathan had earlier been treated for food poisoning in Nigeria before being brought to the Horst Schmidt Klinik, however, said she was responding to treatment after she had undergone a major surgery for a ruptured appendix to remove the poisons in her intestine.
