“SENATOR DINO MELAYE
CONDOLENCE LETTER ON THE PASSING OF YOUR BELOVED MOTHER, DEACONESS COMFORT MELAYE
I received with shock news of the passing of your mother, Deaconess Comfort Melaye. Words are insufficient to condole one on a mother’s death, but I do urge you to take solace in the life that she lived. I have no doubt that mama’s impact and reach will continue to be felt through her offspring.
On behalf of the Great People of Kogi State, my family and myself, I offer you our deep condolences while praying the Almighty God to grant you and the rest of the Melaye family the grace to endure this irreparable loss.
Do keep us notified of funeral plans.
GOVERNOR OF KOGI STATE”.
