To God be the glory

I saw Nadaline at a wedding in Denver last year.  Donald was 'threatening' me with something, and she was lovingly pleading with her husband on my behalf.  All in good cheer and jest, of course.  As usual, she was laughing and smiling with that sweet face of hers - just as I remember her at the Annie Walsh all those years ago.  We mere mortals seldom understand, but God always knows what He's doing: He has given, He has taken and He will comfort.  Praise Him.  Rest very well, dear Nadaline.

Our Condolences

From Kenya, East Africa
We share your grief in this time  of bereavement with deepest sympathy and condelence.
You are in in our thoughts and prayers.


Donald, we extend our deep felt condolences to you, family, and friends for the passing away of Nada line.
Growing together in Sierra Leone, and doing the works of the Lord in Africa, USA, Europe, and all over the world, we have always admired you and Nada line at a distance.  Your services and commitments to the Lord and the genuine love that emanated from you and radiated to all, cannot be fully determined by any stretch of human imagination.  
We know that while we live and make our journeys in this temporary earthly abode, we take "entrances" and make "exits."  In deed, our exits from this world are necessitated by our entrances into the presence of the Lord. This aspect of the Lord is also the providence of God which we shall never comprehend. Now, Nadaline has finally made her final entrance into the everlasting and glorious presence of the Lord whom she loved dearly and served well.   May her soul RIP!
We shall continue to pray for you, the children, and friends. 


Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Our thoughts are with you and the entire family during this difficult time.

It is well...

We are deeply sorry for this terrible loss.  Sister Nadaline was a beacon of joy and laughter that we can never forget. We will miss her constant smile and caring words.  May God console the entire family. It is well IJN. Amen!


Our deepest heartfelt condolence for your loss.  Our greatest strength comes from knowing "God is good and His love endures forever".  May His love and strength cover you and your family through this most difficult time.

Tribute to a Rare Gem

It is with a very heavy heart and in tears that I write this tribute to a Dear Sister, Friend, Godmother, Encourager, Consoler etc.  I have known Nadaline as far back as the late 70s from YFC and GYS days. She always had a sweet smile. I got closer to her as the years went by and she was also dear to our family. I remember the day she and Donald got married 2nd January 1982, my late brother Douglas who had his homecalling November last year, my sister inlaw Ayikulola Carew, my elder sister Thelma Rapley and Rev. Prince Decker were their bestmen and bridesmaids. It was a glorious day to see two people who were deeply in love being united in holy matrimony. Nadaline was always there for others. In 1988 when I was in coma and had being declared to die in three hours by the doctor Nadaline was there by my bedside with others interceeding for me and God heard their prayers and raised me up. All through the three months I was hospitalised she was there with me praying for me, preparing food encouraging me that I'll be okay. On the day of our wedding Nadaline and Donald were our Godparents and Dionne our Petal strewer. I rememner how happy she was with her sweet smile. She will always encourage me whenever I was down. I remember in 1994 on their way to America when they spent an evening with us in Holland and she was so buoyant and full of smiles. She was always with us in joy or sorrow. When my late husband was called home in 2001 I remember how shaken she was that I've being left alone considering my health situation with two young children to care for. I still remember the concern in her voice when she called and her words of encouragement. When she heard last year that the children have gone to university Nadaline was overjoyed and in her words when she called said " Ola kushe ya. Ar gladi foh you. God go provide foh you en tek dem through to di end ya. Wi dae pray foh you. Eh ar gladi bad bad wan foh you". I sensed the sincerity in her voice and knew it was coming from the depths of her heart. Unfortnately she's no more to see them finish. As the Bible says 'Rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn' Nadaline did just that. When our brother Douglas who was their bestman had his homecalling last November Nadaline was devastated. You could sense it from her voice that she was in shock. She stood by us throughout from the day it happened onto the memorial service in Atlanta which she and Donald attended, even when we were in Kenya for the funeral and throughout our stay in Kenya and even after we've gone to Banjul she was always keeping in touch. When our Dad also passed on six months later she was also shaken. I still have the condolence text she sent me and could still remember her words when she called the next day saying "Ola ay una osh ya. Aw Mum? dis wan go tranga foh am. Baby Mo jes die don dis wan egen? Duya una tek care of Mum bicos ee nor easy foh am. Leh wi ohl osh ya". Little did we know she'll be next. We trusted God to answer our prayers the way we wanted but he answered them His own way. It;s really difficult for us because Nadaline was so dear to our family. Mum is devastated. We are going to miss her so much. Her smiles, encouraging words,concern,advice etc. 
Donald,Vasco,Dionne, Nahari,N'gadi, Claire, Wilben, Franklyn, Linda-mae,Desiree, Timothy, the Osmans,Easmons, Shorts and entire relatives and the Christian community at home and abroad on behalf of my Mum, Sisters, myself and our families our deepest sympathy to you all. May God grant us all the grace to go through this loss. Nadaline's death has created a vacuum that cannot be filled. She will always remain dear to us and we'll cherish her memories. Leh wi ohl osh. Nadaline Rest in Christ's bossom. Lala salama.

Celebrating the Life of Aunty Nadeline

On behalf of my family, Christian Centre Church and myself, I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences on the home going of our beloved Aunty Nadaline.
I remember the first and only time meeting her a couple years ago at York University, she was such a pleasant woman. And though quiet in demeanour, she carried herself with such poise, grace and strength. I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that she was an amazing mother to her children. Nahari, my friend is a shining testament of that. 
To Nahari and your family, though this will be a trying time for you all, know that God assures us that HE WILL NEVER LEAVE OR FORSAKE US! Be comforted by this. Also know that you have a loving supportive network of friends here in Canada!
My tribute to her, Beautiful Mercy by Laura Hackett;

In loving memory of a sweet and gentle soul!

Those we love dont go away: They walk beside us everyday: Unseen, unheard.......but always near. Still very loved, still missed, still very dear. Quiet thoughts, unseen tears. How we all wish it was all a dream. Sleep on Mrs. Nadaline Osman, sleep on that beautiful shore till we meet to part no more.


At times like this words cannot express our feelings. Nadeline's greatest joy was making others happy. May the love of friends help you through the days ahead. 
Sharing in your sorrow with love and friendship. Someone so special can never be forgotten.

Don, Our heartfelt condolences to your family. We pray for your strength and comfort, that your faith will rise to new heights and your joy in Christ will break forth - Because He has given you victory. The scars of pain you bear in your loss, like the scars of nails in his hands, proclaim the testimony that our God is good, strong and mighty .... a mighty fortress is our God. Don, your faith and hope amazes me, for indeed such strength in the face of adversity could only stem from a heart that has been tried, faith that has been tested. The lord has found it in His pleasure, to give Nadaline rest from pain. We continue to pray with you, please take heart and be of good courage.

Our Condolences

Don, I know how close you and Nadaline were and I also know the pain and anguish you would be experiencing at this time but be assured that our God is a faithful God. He will never leave or forsake you and the children.
Nadaline was a true woman of God and a very loving and lovely person. I had not seen Nadaline for some years and asked Don to try to come with her to Ghana on his next trip which he promised to do. I was therefore looking forward to seeing Nadaline later on this year because she was the one who always asked Don to make sure he had contacted me and my family anytime he visited Ghana. Nadaline, may you beautiful soul rest in perfect peace.( Florence, Kojo,Paa Kum and Mammie)


May God give the family Grace to endure and may her soul rest in peace

At a time like this words are hard to come by so we seek to comfort with assurances from the Scriptures - May you all experience His Comfort,  know His Peace, trust His Wisdom, find Strength and Courage in His Presence. May you know that He is Covering you with His Feathers and that you shall be reunited with Nadaline for the Marriage Supper with  our Lord.

Our hearts are broken over this sad, sad event.  Aunty Nad, we will TRULY MISS you!  Words cannot express our gratitude to both you and Bra Don, only eternity will tell the full extent of our thankfulness to you, my dear Aunty Nad. I write with tears streaming down my face in sadness that your lovely smile will only be a memory; but one that I will cherish forever. My friend, my mentor, a champion for our faith, my prayer support, me Godmamie, my big sister, my example, I can go on and on.... Bra Don, Vasco, Dionne, Nahari, and N'gadi, thank you for sharing your wife and mother with us.  May God comfort and console you. May He wrap His loving arms around you like a cozy blanket.  May you bask in His love and knowledge that He knows what He is doing and His decision is wise. Sweet, beautiful, kind, and generous Aunty Nad, this is not goodbye, just goodnight! Sleep well!

Beautiful child of God

We will never forget a message she gave on one of our night vigils so many years ago.She spoke about the Lord in such a real and compelling manner,those words have remained fresh.She glorified the Lord always in her conduct and apparent love for her family. Dionne and Ngadi,your mom is what this generation refers to as 'epic'!!! How many young people would love to be in their mother's company every single opportunity they have and keep showing off how cool it is to hang out with her always?You may not think that is such a big deal,but look around you, not many! Your family is that catalog that exemplifies the love of Jesus and your Mom:Anointed,Beautiful,Caring,Doing great works for the Lord all over the world,Examplary,Fashionable,Giggling and smiling all the way,believe me girls,she was truly epic,because she was all that and many more!
Rest in your father's bossom,Sis Nadaline!

Sincere Condolences

For a flower has left, for her heavenly abode. Like her, may we too spread love and joy to those around us.  Donald and family, may the gates of heaven open up to reveal strength and comfort in your times of trial and sorrow.  God will comfort you.
