Pa Reuben Fasoranti,
July 13, 2019.
My coronary heart aches with a profound sense of grief and loss over the tragic dying of your daughter, the beloved Funke Olakunrin.
Funke was an amiable and good soul who did and meant no hurt to anybody. Like her father, she exemplified the most effective traits of our individuals. It’s mindless and very painful that such a nice human being could be attacked by armed assailants whereas she was travelling with members of the family alongside Akure-Ore highway.
Funke and I shared a contented and shut relationship. We often exchanged concepts and recommendation to one another. We may communicate to one another freely and actually due to mutual respect that described our relationship. These talks enriched me. I shall miss them.
When she skilled an ailment final 12 months, she knowledgeable me. I used to be capable of assist. Funke’s situation improved.
Exhibiting her nice private character and gratitude, Funke wrote the next phrases to me which I want to share with you now for example the goodness of her spirit:
“Thanks a lot in your assist. I admire your assist. You helped me to get one other alternative to dwell. Mo dupe. Finest regards and with all respect.”
Not lengthy after, she despatched one other message: “Simply to understand you as soon as extra. I’m right here Sir. The remedy is progressing. I’m trusting GOD. Thank u for making it attainable. Mo dupe Sir. Could you proceed to develop in His Grace. Amen.”
I shall at all times treasure the connection we had and can maintain these messages in remembrance for I see myself as your son who respects and admires you deeply. It’s from this wellspring of affection and emotion that I write this letter.
Sadly, some individuals are eagerly making an attempt to make use of this tragedy to advance their political agendas. I sincerely remorse such behaviour for it’s fallacious and misplaced. It doesn’t effectively match the second. It is a time for comfort and real condolence.
Everybody loves and helps you. I’m positive that no effort will likely be spared in figuring out the assailants and bringing them to full justice. I’ve been assured by authorities and regulation enforcement authorities that the perpetrators of this horrible act will likely be apprehended and face the brunt of the regulation for what they’ve dedicated.
We’ve religion that justice will certainly be finished. However we should search greater than this. All of us who love you should additionally work collectively to honour Funke’s life by taking concrete steps to ensure such assaults don’t proceed to happen towards the harmless and the peaceable.
I too have misplaced a treasured baby. I’ve a way of what you’re going by way of. Phrases are inadequate to precise my innermost sentiments at this second. All I can say is that my fervent prayer is for God to increase His divine hand to be able to lend the consolation to you and the Fasoranti and Olakunrin households that solely He can present.
Could the loving and exquisite soul of Funke now and eternally extra relaxation gently within the bosom of the Lord. Could God provide the power and solace to hold on.
Papa, Olorun a duro ti yin. E o ni di agbaya!
