“I wish God could transfer your pains” Remi Surutu writes letter to late daughter
By Rita Chioma,
Nollywood Yoruba actress, Remi Oshodi aka Remi Surutu, who just lost one of her two daughters, Ayo, has conveyed her thoughts to her late daughter.
The actress, who was obviously still mourning,wrote an open letter to her late baby girl.
As a mother and child, it is natural we share both physical and abstract tours, laughter, pain and compliments; but we honestly shared a bond I cannot find a most appropriate adjective for it yet.
As your friend, It has never been in my intentions to see you go through any form of pain. But as human, pain can emanate from any form and when your pain began, I have always sought God’s favour to transfer your pains so you will be fully lively as you want. And in your pain, you were strong for us. We went everywhere together.
You were my immediate younger sister and remain one of the best things that ever happened to me. My confidante. You have never forsaken me or your sister. Dupe and Demilade will miss you.
I will keep your memories forever; and in all honesty I can only console myself with the belief that I will see you again my beautiful, precious daughter.
Please rest well till we meet to part no more my love. My prayers and affection for you will be eternal.
I have said thank you to all that are helping to give you a lasting resting place.
Ayo died of sickle cell anemia and her remains will be interred today July 6, at the Ebony Vaults, Ikoyi, Lagos.
