Temidayo Adeleke whose life was cut short after her Cameroonian house boy stabbed her to death following an argument over payment of salary was buried yesterday. Her fiance, Toluwanimi Osinowo whom she was supposed to marry by February, 2017 penned down an emotional tribute to her. Read it:
Dayo, you were amazing. I loved you deeply. I miss you. I felt at home wherever you were. It didn’t matter where, as long as you were there, I felt at home – I was happy. I needed you so much that when we fought (usually my fault), everything paused. The Bible says a man must leave father and mother and cleave to his wife. We had done the leaving, but the cleaving was not to be.
“Baby, you were a better person than me – an answer to a specific prayer. Being with you made me a better man. You were truly a Proverbs 31 woman. A treasure found by an undeserving man. I told you that you were an angel from God to me, and I thank God for sending you into my life. You were the biggest earthly expression of God’s grace(His undeserved, unearned and unmerited favour) in my life.
“I don’t pretend to understand why this happened. But I trust that Our God, Our Yahweh Elohim, who rules in the affairs of men let this happen for His reason. Dayo is with her Abba, my Abba, our Abba.”
