  2. I condole with the immediate family and ANCEDRAM family of Sis. Osato of Mainland unit, Lagos state chapter of ANCEDRAM. We cannot question God as to why Sis. Grace had to leave now as God’s ways are higher than ours as the Heavens are higher than the Earth. We can only trust in the wisdom of our God who alone knows the end from the beginning. Good bye, Sis. Grace! Our loss is Heaven’s gain!
