Tribute

Sister Nadaline, You touched my life at the tender age of 13. I will never forget your kindness & words of encouragement. I was going through turmoil with my parents at the time, who were furious that I had abandoned the Anglican Church for the Pentecostal Movement. You took time to listen to my worries & offered useful advice. You gave me a list of names in Youth for Christ to go to for advice & they all turned up trumps for me. Your suggestion that I write a letter to my parents worked, for what I could not tell them during heated conversations, the letter conveyed clearly. They let me be after that & I blossomed into a young Christian, walloping God's word at every camp meeting & bible study. I pray your offsprings meet folk like you throughout their journey in life & I pray for your husband for continued Grace to see the children through life. My last contact with you was at age 17 & I still remember your smile that day when I informed you I was heading for high school & enjoying Christian life. You left your mark on earth & I pray we follow your example at work, home & at play. Today, I find myself working with troubled youths & making representations on their behalf. This is the outcome of your input in my life. Sadness washed over me at news of your passing but I take solace from the fact that you are at peace now, forever unbreakable. I will continue to work for youths like myself who are at crossroads in life. Thank you for having been in my life & thank you for your friendship. Sleep & take your rest beloved.

Remembering Nadaline

Dear Brother & Friend Don Osman and Children,
It is with deep sorrow that we learnt today about the going home of our beloved Nadaline Osman. My family and I present you our sincere condolences. I personally met Nadaline at the International Leadership University (formerly known as Nairobi International School of Theology) in Kenya, while she was undergoing her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. I was then undergoing my Master of Arts degree in Christian Ministry. Nadaline was a compassionate woman and was a friend to everyone in the school. She brought laughter to everyone around her and was eager to go out reaching people out for Christ. Nadaline introduced me to her husband, Mr. Don Osman, while he was serving as the Africa Area Director of Youth For Christ International Africa. It is because of her that my family and I became members of the Youth For Christ family. Nadaline and her husband took care of my family in Kenya after I completed my Master’s degree and we could not go back to D.R. Congo because of the war. They saved us from becoming homeless and jobless while in a foreign land. So, while I was helping in the area office, I sometimes accompanied Nadaline to her speaking engagements while she was promoting the “Operation Hannah” ministry. I was there to help set up the sound system and projector. She used to invite my family to their house to eat and celebrate with them. We are so indebted to this family. My first trip to Europe to attend the Billy Graham International Conference in Amsterdam was because Nadaline who had introduced me to Youth for Christ. This trip opened for me many other opportunities. May she rest in peace with her Lord whom she has served boldly and tirelessly! Revelation 14:13 says: “Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.”
My brother Don, may the Lord almighty give you the peace and comfort that you need at this time of grief and separation with a dear partner of 31 years. Remember, it is written, “Nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Rom. 8:35-39).
 

Remembering Nadaline Osman And Aunty Ester

I personally don't know The Osman family, but I do know Nadaline as a young lady when she used to visit her mum Aunty Ester at Leone Prep. Auntie Ester as she was known was my favourite at Leone Prep. She was my class 2 teacher, who encouraged me a lot at school. I remember her grey hair and beautiful smile. I remember her introducing her daughters to us, of whoich i gather one was Nadaline. May your husband Don, accept my heartfelt sympathy. May Nadaline, Dr Easmon, And Auntie Ester's soul Rest In Perfect Peace.
May God continue to guide and protect Don and his children always. Nadaline is Resting In The Bossom Of her Maker, along with her beautiful parents. You will always be in  my prayers. Just continue to have faith, and God will continue to shower his blessings on your family. Take heart at such a diffiucult time. God knows best. Stay Blessed Always.
 

We did not know Nadaline, but

We did not know Nadaline, but we are deeply touched by her death. May God grant her perfect rest and may her family find peace,continued  hope and  comfort in God's enduring love.

A prayer for a precious family...

Dear Uncle Don and family,
May the Lord be with you, comfort and strengthen you.
May you feel the warmth of His presence filling the emptiness the loss of Aunt Nadaline has created.
May He wrap His arms of love around you and wipe every falling tear, in those quite moments when you miss her.
May you hear His still small voice speaking peace and hope to you always.
May you stand stronger together as a family as you live this new season of your life.
We love you and continue to stand with you in prayers.
God be with you till we meet again.
Blessings, love and prayers,
Theodora, Stephen, Eunice, Lois
 

Farewell, Auntie... Shalom Family.

Auntie Nadeline; We did not speak much, but I do remember the love you had for your family, which includes my little brother... and by extension, all the rest of us, and I am grateful.  It's sad to hear you've passed on, but reassuring to know that you sleep, peacefully awaiting the judgement day, when the dead in Christ shall rise - to the blissful message:  "Well done, ye good & faithful servant..." and to eternal life.  I know the family will miss you, but seeing all the strength I have seen Nahari, Dionne & N'gadi have demonstrated through all this, I am full of pride and admiration at the product of your motherhood.
Uncle Don. God bless you.  In spite of the pain and loneliness you must be enduring in this, you have remained a stalwart leader - leaning on the word of God and being an example and a source of comfort and encouragement.  I am touched by your facebook posts. God bless and Keep you! 
Shalom...

Our deepest sympathy to you and family

On behalf of the Bultman Family in UK, we just want you to know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We know how dear your wife was to you and the entire family, but take heart in knowing that she's now in a better place. May the sweet memories continue to linger in your hearts forever and may light perpetual shine on her. God will grant you all comfort. Stay blessed...

May Nadaline's soul rest in perfect peace

Such a shock!  Nadaline's was always smiling and full of fun and yet such a wonderful servant of the Lord.  Donald and the children .... what can one say to console you at this most difficult time. To Claire .... you and Nadaline were like twins to me though you were sisters.  Thinking of Denise & Makallay, too It is so hard for us who know you all so I can only imagine the pain that you're feeling.  We all continue to pray that God gives you the strength to move on from the place that you are now.  Last July we were all together as we were 5 years previously .... little did we know what lay ahead.  May Nadaline's soul rest in perfect peace.

Nadaline

You know this is one occasion when one may be tempted to question what God is doing, You feel like screaming and shouting!! You might not want to pray for a while but it is also when we hear him say "be still and know that I am God" Nadaline has served her God so well, nutured her family and helped so many others. God has now called her to a much higher office. To Donald and the children I am so sorry for your loss. All she has spoken and taught to you is a legacy that will help you go through life.
 She was so warm I can still hear her voice shouting Olive Morgan!! long time she said how you do way Vicky?..... By our faith it is not good bye but I'll see you again. May God console you all.

With Deepest Sympathy

Words may seem inadequate to express the depth of sorrow one encounters for such a loss; but this message sends love, peace and prayers knowing that God's Grace will strengthen all of you and that Nadaline will remain in the hearts and minds of all who knew her. 

Condolences to Osman and Easmon Families

 I would like to extend my heart felt sympathy to you all. I remember Nadaline in Freetown, when we all belonged to various christian organsations. My memories of her are fond ones. she was caring , kind, gentle and that smile! I will never forget her smile. I know how dear she was to you all and to so many other people. She will be sadly missed. but let us take courage in the fact that our God is a god of purpose. Nadaline was a woman of faith. she knew her reedemer liveth. He has called her home to rest as her work on this earth is done. God in his mercy will give you all the strength and courage you need to carry on and face  the days ahead until such time when you all meet again.
I pray that Nadaline will sleep safe in the arms of our loving saviour until such time. 
God bless you all

The journey Continues.....

Nadaline,
Your magnificent and  spectacular life's journey continues because you left behind a wonderful family,
to carry out your legacy of love and peace.
I remember our days at the Annie Walsh Memorial School, in particular, Sixth Form, when you, Valda, and myself
took a picture in our uniform and my Dad, ( the late Uncle Mac McEwen) called us  "the 3 musketeers". We had beautiful memories
of our schooldays. You walked your path one day at a time with courage, faith and determination. You kept your head up and 
your steps became firm and your footing solid.
To Donald, Dionne,Nahari, N'dardi, and the Osman and Easmon family,
Life's circumstances are not always what we might wish them to be.
Hold on to the wonderful and beautiful memories that Nadaline has left.
God is in control and continue life's journey of Courage, Faith, Determination and Love.

Nadaline - Faithful to the end

Please accept our deepest sympathy for your irreplaceable loss. Yes, mothers are irreplaceable,but Jesus is more than a mother can ever be.
We knew Nadaline in the years when we first moved to freetown,and her hospitality and faithfulness in running the Monday Bible Study, Don in, Don out, rain or shine,
 was one of the reasons we were able to settle in so well in a foreign country. Come Monday evening 7pm the Osman living room will be set up for bible study, 
the children put in the bedroom under strict orders to not disturb the meeting, we will have a good enjoyable time in the Lord. It is one reasons we will always remember her.
Of course, her laughing voice saying ' Uncle Geoorge' will always ring in our ears.
It is our hope that your consciousness of the comfort of the Lord Jesus will be greater than your grief in the very, very difficult time ahead of you. May God bless and be merciful
to you.

To the Osman Family and Our Makallay

We are all grief stricken for the family's devastating loss of Nadaline, and that our Makallay has lost her sister she loved so endlessly. 

We give to you what we have, faith that our Lord Jesus Christ will embrace you all in your human sorrow, and that his word, that "those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; that they shall mount up with wings like eagles; that they shall run and not be weary; that they shall walk and not faint", will be your lifeline through this time.
From Mamadi and Austin Demby and Sadia, Drissa and Serah Yilla

Goodbye

Goodbye Nadaline. Though I never knew you at all, I seems to me from all the testimonies that your  Candle Burned out long before your legend ever will.  To Donald Osman and the Kids and all the Loved ones, do not mourn as someone without faith.  I know Nadaline will be watching down on you all and is in a better place now.   It is well, God Bless....

a precious memory

I had an insignificant experience with Nadine one Sunday when you preached at Foothills Bible Church, Don.  It seemed insignificant then, but it became such a sweet memory afterwards.  From that time until now I have visualized it in sweet memories.                                 While the auditorium emptied, I stood near a front row of seat because John was up front talking to people around you.    I saw Nadine walk down the aisle and sit in a row of seats not far from me.                                                                                                                                                      She signaled to me to come talk together.  I gladly joined her and we talked quite a while about her life, your family, my life, and whatever came to mind.  Her face is so pretty that I remember only her smile, not the content of the conversation.  And this is what I have remembered in the years since then.  Her name triggers that beautiful face and its reflections of the love of the Lord she buried in my heart.   May the Lord eventually fill your mind with something similar, Don.   We love you and pray for you. ~~Dotty and John                                  

My deepest sympathy

To the Osman and Easmon family.
Nadeline's legacy will live on in your lives and in the lives of all she touched. She was truly a Proverbs 31 woman.
Nadaline, you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, now go receive your Promised Crown.

Rest in Peace, Nadaline

With friends on earth we meet in gladness,
While swift the moments fly,
Yet ever comes the thought of sadness,
That we must say, "goodbye"

We'll never say goodbye in heaven
We'll never say goodbye
In that fair land of joy and song,
We'll never say goodbye.

May mother earth rests gentle on mortal remains and may her soul rests in peace with the Lord she loved and served so well.
Rachel & Arnold

Our Deepest Sympathy

"Nad-a-line,"
If I had known that our meeting in November was a goodbye to over forty years of friendship, I would have hugged you tighter, laughed with you louder, and talked forever.
. . . another aching heart  -- "Tina-Ma-leen"
Donald and the children, Claire, Franklin, and the rest of the family, may the good Lord comfort you and give you strength during this difficult time. We will keep you in our prayers.

Woman of God

Aunty Nadaline,
This is utterly a heartbreaking loss.  When I was notified of Aunties passing it was unbelievable.  She was so beautiful, so graceful, so honorable.  My most memorable conversation with her, was while I was going through a very touch time in my life she called me to check on me and all I remember is how compassionate and encouraging she was to me.  I remember her words till this day, "Sorry my child, I'll pray for you and this to shall pass."   She was a woman of great integrity and always took it upon herself to care about everyone and freely offer counsel. 
I am confident that her strong spiritual life earned her wings to fly as one of God's angels to watch over her family and be in peace, in Heaven.  She will be remembered, She will be missed because of all her good deeds she did while on earth. 
 
God Bless, the Osman Family.
Love, Khadi and Baby Nyla
 
 

Dawning!

Dear Don, Dionne, Nahari, Ingadi, Vasco,
I am so grateful that Nadaline was a strong woman of God and her testimony was evident on first sight! She was very warm to us and welcomed us, made us feel part of the family the very first time we were invited to  your home. The days we would travel for long and grueling tours with YFC int'l music teams, upon returning she would welcome us back home with warmth and genuine love. I will miss her and such memories will forever be in my mind! Her legendary smile, a warm and a. Friendly heart impacted me in powerful way. She was an encouragement to us! 
Now she joins the parade of the saints that have gone before us, she is in the safe hands of our dear Lord and savior whom she adored and served faithfully with all her heart. She is free from disease, illnesses etc. we will miss her, her legacy lives on, our sweet memories of this servant will forever be etched in our minds. We pray that you'll be comforted in this time of deep sorrow, I remember reading a Corrie Ten Boom's book, she said NO PIT IS TOO DEEP THAT GOD'S LOVE ISN'T DEEPER STILL. The Lord understands the deep hurt and questions you ask about why he took her home , why he allows suffering  . . . .  May he give you peace perfect peace at this time!  The Lord is soon coming to take us home!
Nadaline, looking forward to meeting you in the clouds when The Lord will come and take us home! 
 

Sis Nadaline Osman...A Beautiful Soul!

Although I did not have the opportunity to meet her, however I can say I did...Reading the comments and tributes I am led to say She was a servant, a leader,a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and an angel who touched the lives of many and left an impact. A life well lived and admired by so many individuals...What can I say? A Beautiful Soul all around! Until we meet again, Rest on Sis Nadaline, Rest on......

To Mr. Osman, children and families, I say cheer up and live in the sunshine. We'll understand it better by and by.....May the grace of God and His strength be made perfect in your weaknesses as you journey on each and every day...May He uphold you today, tomorrow, the days after and weeks and months to come.. Though weeping may endure for the night but joy cometh in the morning...

Condololences

Our deepest condolonces to Uncle Donald, the Kids and the entire family as you mourn the loss of a Dear, Devoted Wife,  Mother, Aunt, Cousin, Sister, In-Law. The void is there no doubt but Jesus Christ is in control and would heal the pain.  Rest In Peace Aunty Nadaline from all the pain and troubles of this World.  We love you but Jesus loves you best.  In Christ Alone your Hope is found.
 

Nadaline's Departure

Dear Mr. Don and family, 

It was very difficult reading about Nadaline's departure. I first met her during Liberation '89 when she had 2 young children. She still took excellent care of us with such motherly concern. I am grateful to God that He gave me the opportunity to encounter her quiet and gentle spirit. Our prayer is for God to continue to comfort you, the children and all who are deeply affected by her departure because He is still the saving refuge of His anointed - Psalm 28: 8.

Praying for the family

Dear Don and the family,
We are in prayer for you in these days of pain. There is so much about Nadaline that moves us to praise, that we can only imagine the mixture of grief and gratitude that you are going through. What a woman of God, and what a legacy she leaves behind! Like many around the world, we are stunned as we think that she has been called home, but we are also deeply honoured to have known her albeit in a limited way. Deut. 33:27 comes to mind. "The eternal God is you refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms". We trust that you will experience this truth in a fresh way. And as we look forward to being with you during the service on Saturday, we also trust the Lord with you that this will not only honour the memory of our sister Nadaline, but also bring a lot of glory to the King she served so diligently.
 
Much love in Christ

Nadaline's Portion

I didn't know Nadaline Osman very well; in fact, I didn't really know her at all.  I was so blessed to meet Don and Nadaline for the first time last Fall at Foothills Bible Church' where they shared about their work and passion for missions.  From the moment Don spoke, and then passed the microphone to Nadaline, it was apparent they were truly one - as full partners in life and as servants of the Lord.  Nadaline was poised and confident, articulate and passionate, a woman of action yet with a quiet spirit; a woman of God.  She so obviously loved her husband, her Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, and the blessings and opportunities they'd been given to 'love on others', as salt and light in this world.  The key verse of our summer Bible study, "The Inheritance" (Beth Moore), seems to have Nadaline's name written all over it.  "Lord, You have assigned me my portion and my cup; You have made my lot secure.  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance."  Psalm 16:5-6.   I may not have known Nadaline personally, but I absolutely know Nadaline understood what 'possessing' her inheritance right here on this earth meant; what it meant to cultivate her land (and life) to its boundaries and to delight in God's favor, what it meant to be perfectly content with Jesus, her portion.  Complicated, hard times with polar opposite emotions - grieving and hurting, but also celebrating that she has now fully claimed her inheritance.  I am honored, inspired and blessed to have known Nadaline - even if only peripherally, yet deeply as a sister-in-Christ, and through your loving online posts.  She leaves behind an eternal legacy.  Thank you, Don, for allowing me to be part of this unimaginable virtually-united prayer/worship/encouragment group through the last few weeks of Nadaline's life.  Even in the valley, you and Nadaline lifted, encouarged and sharpened my spirit by giving all glory to God.  God bless you, your children, and family/friends worldwide who love Nadaline and long to see her in eternity.  Jeff and I will continue to pray . . .

Rest in peace

My Condolences to the Osman's family, Mrs Osman may ur soul rest in peace, Amen.

Words of Consolation

WORDS OF CONSOLATION
“It’s a pleasure to share one’s memories.  Everything remembered is dear, endearing, touching, precious.  At least the past is safe – though we didn’t know it at the time.  We know it now because it’s in the past, because we have survived”. – Susan Sontag
As we celebrate Nadaline’s life this week, what will help us through this difficult time will be the fond memories we each have.  Donald has done a great job of focussing our attention not on Nadaline’s illness and passing but on the good times we had by sharing his memories of her. 
So as we mourn her loss, let’s not do it without hope but with the joy of having had her in our lives.  To Donald, in the words of this unknown author,
“When you speak of her, speak not with tears for thoughts of her should not be sad.  Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort for her life was rich because of you.”
To Dionne, Nahari and N’gardi, I have no words to comfort you in this your hour of grief but in the words of another unknown author remember,
“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday.  Unseen, unheard, but always near.  Still loved, still missed and very dear.”
To Claire, Raymond, Franklin and the rest of the Easmon and Osman families, all I can say is,
“Think of Nadaline with love today but that is nothing new, you think about her yesterday and days before that too.  Think of her in silence, often speak her name, all you have are memories and her picture in a frame.  Your memories of her are your keepsakes with which you’ll never part.”

Our Sympathy

Once behalf of the Dr. Y.M. Kroma family, we extend our condolences to your family. Only God knows the pain you are feeling and He will give you the comfort only HE can provide.  Blessings to all of you.

Sleep on Beloved.

Sleep on Nadaline,Sleep and take your rest.lay down  your head upon thy savior's breast.We love you well,but Jesus loves you best.Goodnight.

condolence

 
A LIFE OF FAITH
 
I first knew Nadaline as the younger sister of Claire who I went to school with.  Her enthusiasm for life was her striking characteristic and from early on she showed with us a strong belief in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Through this, we grew closer and shared many happy times together in Sierra Leone and later in Kenya.  She and Donald were a tremendous support to me and my daughter, Euphemia, after the death of my late husband, Sydney Davies.  We both have very fond memories of her.  We will always remember her generous and loving nature and her cheerful outlook expressed so often in laughter.  With her leaving it, much joy has gone out of the world.  I know that to Donald and his family and the Easmon family she is and always will be irreplaceable.  The Lord will comfort and strengthen us all at this time that Nadaline is absent from us but present with the Lord. Through God’s mercy we will meet again.
 
But as it is written: “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”(1 Cor. 2:9)
Irene Sydney-Davies

Mrs.O

Mrs. O, I'm still at a loss for words for what has happened but I know deep inside you're where you belong. God sent you here to show people how loving and caring he is and you showed that to me when I was going through hard times. You taught me to love the Lord with all my heart and everything else will fall into place. I cherish the moments we spent together and all the times you helped me understand the message. I know God has a special place for you up there and I cant wait to see you but for now i'll continue my walk and know that our God puts certain people in our lives to make an impact so big it changes everything we thought we ever knew. You are that person to me and I love you so much.

Encouragement

The Lord knows why He took Nadaline at this time.  Such a beatiful woman.  So great to know that she lives on, those who know the Lord will see her again soon and celebrate eternal life forever!
May Don, family and friends take comfort in this and the ever enabling power of the Holy Spirit with you.  Norah Ayee/Calgary, Canada.

Condolences

Heartfelt sympathy to the Osman/Easmon family on the passing of your dear wife, mother, sister and loved one, Nadaline.  Too young to go but God has better plans for her. Today and always, may loving memories bring you comfort, peace and the strength to overcome this pain. As our heavenly father would, he sometimes lets us cry to cleanse the hurt out of our heart and gathers every tear drops while he turns them into pearl and gives them back some day.... WAIT FOR THAT DAY !!!. Orsh yah!!! May her gentle soul Rest in Perfect Peace!!
 

The Lord knows best!

On behalf of my family and the entire Youth For Christ International/Africa family, I commiserate with you, Bra Don and your entire family on the demise of Aunty Nad. We did what we had to do when that call was made. We called on Daddy incessantly and faithfully hoping for that miracle....but He decided otherwise; to take her home to glory. What can we say? He is the Almighty, Sovereign, loving and merciful God. He always desires and brings about the BEST for us. He loved her BEST.
Aunty Nad was such an amazing person. Her warmth, passion and love for God, candor, godly sagacity, hilarity, motherliness and commitment to her family endeared so many to her. She always had a piece of advice to give to keep you on the straight and narrow. What a great woman of God. We will miss you. Rest in peace.
Leh we all osh o....God na still God!!!!!

The Freetown Family

From Mr. and Mrs. Abu S. Conteh
Daddy, we know this is a difficult time for you and the children.
Please take heart and remain strong; be strong for the wonderful 35
years of love and friendship shared and for the children that have
discovered their destinies in the Lord. Be assured of this, that the
Lord is never late, He is always there on time. Peace!

From Board, staff and volunteers of Youth for Christ Sierra Leone
Mr. Osman and Children, please accept our deepest sympathy on the
death of Aunty Nadaline. We know it is a tough time for you and the
children but be of good courage for the Lord shall be your strength.
It is our prayer that the Lord himself will comfort you and the
children both now and always.

From Abu Bakr Kanu- Youth Center
Daddy, may loving memories comfort you in your time of loss with
sympathy and prayer.

From Franklyn Easmon
Donald and the rest of the family, my deepest and heart felt sympathy
to you on dear Nadaline's sudden death. the message of death is always
very, very sad in every family circle.  however, it cannot be avoided
under any circumstances. i am so sorry i cannot be with you for her
burial.  if mum and dad were alive, am sure their tears would have
overwhelmed Barthurst street. but as it is God's will that she pass
away, so be it. in all things, give thanks to the almighty, he knows
best. cheer up!

We Will Always Remember Nadaline

As we mourn the passing of a woman of faith, our hearts are warmed when we think of the life that she has lived.Her witness was a very strong one as she stood firmly resolved to live a life of faith in all circumstances.
Nadaline was a warm and vivacious woman whose laughter was sure to set one laughing as well. She was an extremely hospitable hostess who ensured that her guests felt very much at home.
She was a woman of prayer who was committed tp prayer groups whereever she found herself living. For her, prayer was the only solution in good as well as in trying times. As a mother we have no doubt that she has inculcated in her children the need to have a close relationship with God. We know that Donald and the children will not only miss a dear wife and mother but also their prayer partner.
Let us however take heart that she has gone to be with her maker and that someday we will join her in heaven. We pray that God will continue to console the entire family.
God bless you.
 
Joyce and Gerald Wilson
