May the God of all comfort grant you his grace at this time of your loss of your beloved wife, mother and sister. "We know that he who has started this work. .........shall perfect it in the day of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ". May she rest in perfect peace.

Gone but not forgotten

Heartfelt condolences to the rest of the Osman and Easmon family. May God console you. He is our hope and strength. May her soul rest in peace.

And when the day shall dawn

And when the day shall dawn that death must part them...
Nadaline will still be with you and the family as she has only moved from one hand of God to the other. May you always find comfort in the many memories you created together.

Rest in peace, Aunty Nadaline

To Uncle Donald, Vasco, Dionne, Nahari and N'gadi
May God be your comfort and strength in this very difficult time. I haven’t  seen Aunty Nadaline in years, but will remember her always as a very warm and beautiful woman. Our family grieves with you and prays for God’s continued comfort for all of you. May her soul rest in God’s perfect peace.
 

My condolences to the Osman family.

I knew Nadaline during church meetings, especially during the ladies' retreat organized by the Baptist church.  In these meetings she would PRAY! She has gone to be with her Maker and even  as you  mourn , the LORD will comfort you. Apart from the church fellowships, I came to know her even better as your family visited the Ojiambo family.I am a niece to the Ojiambo's. She was a very warm person and we came to love her.May God be with you all. I continue to pray for you. May God bless and give you peace!

Sympathy

Donald & Children:
Death leaves a memory no one can heal.  Nadaline's life has not ended, it is merely changed.  Only believe and your hearts shall be healed.  May her sweet soul rest in Peace.

Heartfelt Sympathy

My family and I grieve as you mourn the death of your dear wife. As Christians we should believe that there is something beyond death. A land that is fairer than gold. Therefore we should not mourn as unbelievers, but should be happy in the lord, as Christ himself conquered death. Nadaline is safely in the arms of the Lord. She lived a wonderful and exemplary life.  The vacuum she left will be filled by the Holy Spirit. Therefore believe, trust, honor, praise and glorify the lord. You have always been on the Lords side and have always been a  winners. The lord will console you, comfort you and will always be there for you.Take heart Donald. May her soul Rest in Perfect Peace.

NADALINE OSMAN - 'A TRUE SAINT'

Dear Nadaline, 
I regret that I never told you this while you were with us. Nevertheless, I must say it all the same. To me you were a True Saint. You loved all selflessly, you did not withhold anything from anyone. You spent quality time praying and caring for other people, you were always concerned about others' welfare. You always brought cheer to me and family by allowing your husband to foster my two sons during your time in Kenya. May the Lord surround Don & family with much love and care during this difficult time.
I and my family will always have fond memories of your kindness!!
Maryanne 

Deepest Sympathy

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. May peace and comfort find you during this very difficult time.

Safe In His Arms, Now and Forever
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,

POLENI SANA!

My family and I pray that God will give you peace and comfort during this sad season.
May the great memories of mummy's love, care, prayers and presence carry you in the next stretch.
May the assurance of knowing that she's gone home encourage you all to walk with the Alford faithfully.
We will all meet again at the great reunion!  Heaven in more real now that such a special saint has gone ahead.
POLENI SANA!

Condolences to the Family

HEALING FOR YOUR GRIEF 'He heals the brokenhearted...' PSALMS 147:3 One of the most moving scenes in Scripture is Jesus weeping at the graveside of Lazarus. It's not that He was powerless to change the situation, which He did, but that He empathises with us in our time of loss. 'He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.' The Lord didn't promise to protect us from pain and loss, but to bring us through it. Perhaps these suggestions will help: 1) Don't isolate. Expand your 'family.' '...Better a nearby friend than a distant family' (Proverbs 27:10 TM). If you don't have family nearby, reach out to caring people who are close by. As part of a group you discover that you're not alone, that mourning isn't sickness or self-indulgence, and that sharing brings healing. 2) Don't deny your loss. 'The memory of the just is blessed...' (Proverbs 10:7 KJV). When you're around friends, don't hesitate to talk about your loss. When you do, you're saying it's okay for them to share their memories too. A burden shared is a burden lightened. 3) Don't try to do it all. 'There is a time to cry...' (Ecclesiastes 3:4 NCV). Because grief is draining, you'll need more rest than usual. So while your ability to function is reduced, let others help with the everyday stuff like cooking, cleaning and shopping until you feel stronger. 4) Don't neglect your legitimate needs. Respect your body by using the acronym D.E.E.R. (drink, eat, exercise, rest) to help you stay focused and set healthy boundaries. Nobody knows how you feel better than you, so give yourself permission to say, 'No thanks' or 'Some other time' without feeling guilty.

Rest in Peace

To Don and the children. I met the family through my Uncle and Aunt , Fred and Grace Ojiambo, they soon became our friends too.I will always remember Nadaline who was warm, gracious and had a good fashion sense. She was a GODLY woman. She prayed fervently for my aunt who passed away three weeks ago before she herself fell ill. I have been praying that God would heal her but he saw it best to take her away.
May her soul rest in peace. To don and the children , God is faithful and will see you through this difficult time.May he give you peace that passes all understanding. Amen.

SHALOM be with you

Dear Don & Family,
Words are not enough to express how sorry I am for your loss. I have prayed to God to provide you the strength and courage you need in order to handle this difficult moment successfully. 
Please know how very saddened I am for the loss of your beloved wife, friend, mother to your children and the much more she has been to those around her. I send our deepest condolences for you and for your family. I can’t imagine how painful it is for you but don’t forget that the Lord is with you and will be there to console you. Loosing a loved one is a difficult moment of life.
May Nadaline rest in peace,
My love and sympathy to you,
Barine,
Nairobi, Kenya

Extending our deep and heartfelt sympathy

Dear Donald and family, Claire and family,
At this time of great loss, may the Lord's precious promises bring you strengh for today and hope for tomorrow and may the memories you once shared bring you comfort and peace which comes from Christ alone. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
(The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Ps 18: 2)

Psalm 46

To Don and the entire Osman family,
On behalf of the team at Evangel Publishing House in Nairobi, Kenya, we pray God's comfort and embrace during this time and in the days to come, may you be continually reminded that he is your strong tower, your refuge and strength and ever so present to help when you are discouraged, when you ask questions, when you miss her...and may you know that His grace is sufficient even in this situation.
 
Blessings
 
 

Condolence

Dear Don and all family members, as we mourn the passing of Nadaline, i wish to say that though your hearts hold deep sadness at this dificult time, may the same hearts hold the blessings of the life you shared and the love that will always be part of you. Surely, God will comfort you, uplift your spirits and carry you to a place of peace. Amen.

Thoughts & Prayers

To Don, Claire and the rest of the Osman and Easmon Family, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. We are consoled in the belief that God knows best and Nadaline is in heaven along with the Saints. I personally want to think that she will be having a conversation or two with my grandmother, Mrs. Judith John. As Grandma Judith will often do – quote from the Bible or sing a few verses fitting to the current circumstances faced:
Precious Lord, take my hand,
Lead me on, let me stand,
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn;
Through the storm, through the night,
Lead me on to the light

Take my hand, precious Lord,
Lead me home.

 O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

Rest in Peace Dear Sister

Uncle Donald, Dionne, Nahari and N'gadi,
I prayed with a conviction that the Lord would allow Nadeline to tell the whole world about the miracle of her healing. For several days I carried her voice in my head narrating with such excitement how “Papa God go do am”. What I failed to entertain was the thought that God’s perfect healing could take Nadeline to eternal rest in heaven!
You are in my thoughts and prayers and I know the Lord will see you through these challenging times. May His peace and love surround you now and always.
Jumoke
 

Condolences

Donald, Claire and the rest of the Easmon family,
On behalf of my family and my siblings I want to ask you all to mourn with faith and hope as Christians do. What a loss! But we should give thanks because Nadline is with the Lord. She is gone, but will not be forgotten. Reading the tributes show that she did make prints in the lives of so many people. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
Jesse Porter

My deepest Sympathy

Dear Donald,
I am saddened by the news of the passing away of your dear wife Nadeline.  I still recall our school days at the Annie Walsh and her sweet smile and her quiet disposition. She was humble, accommodating and very friendly.  Again, life at FBC and the Bible Study Union.  She was a role model of what a true lady should be like.  All my time with her I hardly saw her get angry - such a fine lady with all the virtues of a Christian woman, mother.  I remember the Sunday evening services at Zion Methodist church.  I find it hard to believe that she has left us.  But I have no doubt that she is with the Lord.   Take heart Donald, we are praying for you.  May the Comforter the Holy Spirit be with you as you mourn the loss of your dear wife.  My dear sister, rest in peace with the Lord.  

Rest in the Bossom of Our Lord Jesus Christ - Sister Nadaline

Osman Family,
Sister Nadaline passing to eternal glory will not only leave a void in our lives, but in the hearts of everyone who knew her. Her memory will always remain deep within our heart. Our thoughts and prayer are with the Osman family. As we mourn her death, and celebrate her life, this is a gentle reminder that we should be a blessing to others on daily basis.
This is indeed a great loss, and May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

The Beauty of Life and Death

Little did i know that meeting with Don and Nadaline few months ago in Freetown, Sierra Leone was my last meet with Nadaline. It was at Dundas Street and as always Nadaline was just herself; sweet words, encouraging, smiling and mesmerizing. She did the best she can and had a compelling presence. The righteous never dies. Take courage Don.

My deepest sympathy to Donald

My deepest sympathy to Donald, the children and the entire Easmon family. Nadline was a beautiful person in mind, body and spirit and she is now gracing the realms of heaven. May God comfort you and give you the strength and courage to get through this very difficult time and may you take solace from the knowledge that she is at peace.
 

Condolences

Dear Don and Family,
In times like these I really dont have words to say but Pole. Loosing a loved one can be difficult and I cant even tell you I know how it feels.  But knowing that she loved the Lord served the Lord is the best thing ever for she is not gone forever. In the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy. My word to you is just to keep trusing in the Lord keep depending on him rely on him for stregnth direction and encouragement. The Lord loves you so so much and he will be there for you every step of the way even after everyone is gone God shall not leave you nor forsake you. We hoped we could have made it to come over and be with you but circumstances do not allow, however we continue to commit you to the Lord in prayer.
God bless you

But for the Lord.....

3 years ago, I journeyed through this valley of death, loosing our little 1st born girl. No well-meaning words could change that reality. Though my heart and mind battled with the loss, my spirit knew where my little angel was. The tears were my food day and night, and many were the times I could not speak or utter a word, for something like a potato seemed to lodge in my throat each time I tried to talk about my girl. On the burial day, it seemed so wrong to put her back to dust,but it was beautiful to see friends and family, silently there, speaking when I could not. I remember praying and telling the Lord, it was so wrong for a parent to lay down a child to rest' and thinking to myself, 'death, so this is how you sting'. And so, I understand maybe just a little bit of this season for you all as a family.
Just imagining Nadaline beholding the Master's face, beholding the One that she loved dearly, brings a smile to my face. I can only imagine, that she would be in worship over and over and over again! Indeed, we all long for that. Meanwhile, since the Lord still has us here on earth, Don you said it so well....'thou He slay me, yet will I trust Him'. Whom have we, but the Lord'. May He be to you, as Alvin Slaugther would sing: My shield, My strength, My portion, Deliver, My Shelter, Strong Tower, My very Present Help'.

So sad to hear, Don, about

So sad to hear, Don, about your loss. Praying that Jesus will surround you with his love and help you bear the pain as you grieve the death of such a wonderful, beautiful wife. Much love, Barbara and Shane

Glorious Triumphant

Some pass through life without been noticed or making an impact. Though you went home a little sooner than expected but your footprints has become so unerazeable. Knowing you with your uncompromising, gentle and loving Christlike way of life has been a blessing. A wise encourager, firm believer and peaceful sister you are. Yes, Pastor Don, Dionne, Nahari, Ngadi, Vasco, friends and family including KCCC family loves you, but your maker and redeemer loves you more. Pastor Don, our prayer will continue to be with you, your children and family as your wife's legacy lives on in our memories. “Do not be worried and upset,” Jesus told them. “Believe in God and believe also in me. There are many rooms in my Father's house, and I am going to prepare a place for you. I would not tell you this if it were not so. And after I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to myself, so that you will be where I am. (John 14:1-3 GNT). Sister Nadaline, enjoy your peaceful rest with in The Lord till we meet to part no more.

Our sympathies

To Don and the entire family,
Marina and I grieve with you. Your Rwandan family grieves with you. May the Lord comfort you.
We also join you to celebrate an exceptional life of an exceptional woman who is a mother, a sister and a friend to us. I will never forget the first day I met Nadaline. It was on Sunday July 17th, 1994. She was carrying N'gadi in her hands before 5 in the morning as she came to meet me at KenCom in Nairobi. The sight of her opened rays of hope and joy to me after a long time in pain and suffering. She welcomed me in your home, and made me one of your own. She was gracious, understanding, caring and loving. Marina and I remember her as a mother to us. Even before she fell sick, she tried several times to connect with us and to find out how Marina was doing.
Nadaline, you demonstrated pure love. You faught well. Time for eternal rest in perfect peace has come. Heaven is celebrating a hero coming home. We will join you there.

Deepest condolences

Just want to let you know that you are not alone in this. We stand with you in prayers which is all we can do at this time. The rest we leave in the hands of our Great King of life.
Romans 8:.........37-39 'Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is Christ Jesus our Lord.'

Our Deepest Sympathy

Dear Don and Family,
 
We are indeed saddened to learn of the death of your dear wife and our sister, Nadaline.  It was such a joy to fellowship and share good times together in Nairobi, Kenya.  We certainly have fond memories of those times.  Words cannot express how we felt when we heard of the illness and death.  We know that the Lord will continue to guide and comfort you at this time and as He says in Deuteronomy 31:8, "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."  Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family at this difficult time. May her soul rest in perfect peace.

She is in a better place, so be confident and courageous.

We’ve no abiding city here: This may distress the worldling’s mind, but should not cost the saint a tear, who hopes a better rest to find.
We seek a city out of sight, and Zion is its name. The Lord is there and it shines with everlasting light.
Be strong and know that our redeemer liveth.
May Nadaline's soul rest in perfect peace with the Lord.
 

Our hearts are with you

We are still in shock and pain at the passing of our dear Aunty Nadaline. We recall our early contact with her since the family’s arrival in Nairobi, Kenya, where we bonded and were as one family. Aunty Nada was a people’s person, warm, always ready to reach out and go the extra mile to help and support all she came in contact with. She was a prayer warrior, and we were personally blessed by her spearheading of a prayer group that was such a support and source of comfort and strength to our family during a difficult time.  Her constant words of consolation, then and since, have been a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. We will miss her concern, words of encouragement, and just overall loving spirit. Aunty Nada, we love you, but Jesus loves you best. Sleep on and take your rest. We know you have gone to a better place. To Uncle Donald, the children and the entire Osman and Easmon families, pleace accept our deepest sympathy. We pray that God will grant us all the grace to accept this loss, knowing that he "heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." Psalm 147:3

To Nadaline

Nadaline, it was such an honor and privilege to know you and to receive blessing of love and encouragement while you were here with us.  I rejoice knowing that you are with our Father in paradise.  I grieve for your husband and children as they morn your departure.  We will all miss you until that day we can be together again.  The Frick family loves you Nadaline!
