No doubt, my beloved friend ( DEACON ISAAC OLAIDE DUROSARO) should be in the bosom of Jesus Christ our saviour now. I am very confident of this because of the illustrious and Godly live he lived when he was on earth. Since we've been friends for about 35 years ago, I have not seen any situation that got him so angry and offended, he made Peace with everyone. Infact, I am yet to recall any situation that made him to tell lie, because had no delight in it. He was a very honest and hard-working man to the core.
A very dedicated lover of God and everything about God's works. He contributed significantly to many lives around him.
Dear friend, I pray that your afterlife would be blissful and the family you left behind will continue to enjoy the peace of God.

Rest In Peace Friend

A privilege it is to write about my cousin, my brother, LAIDE DUROSARO. We were muslims. He was known as Sumaila. He was a non assuming, critically minded. Lover of truth and hard-working! He was very determined to overcome obstacles and the mountains of life. He loved success! From the cradle, he joined the Fire Service. He was trained in the rudiments if safety.. he later joined the services of Shell Petroleum Development in Nigeria. He steadily rose through the ranks. Adding knowledge and skills to become a successful Shell staff, in Nigeria and some other countries till he retired some years ago. He was loving. A giver, an helper, a ready advicer, an encourager. Among other qualities! I love him dearly! Will miss him much! May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace! Amen!
