  1. RIP MADAM. I still saw her in January at a wedding. so sorry for the Laja family
    Weep no more, she is in a better place now

  2. My heart is broken at the sudden death of my dear sister in Christ
    My name is Juanita Faulkner, an American, who met Dr Laja in NY, while we were both shopping
    She exclaimed, “Oh, my God, you look just like my sister who just passed a few months ago!”
    Since then, we were true sisters. She sponsored me to Nigeria, where I spent a month in her lovely home. Her sons Francis and Christian marveled at how much alike we looked. I will miss her annual trips to New York, where we “shopped until we dropped” Her devotion to Christ and her church, has assured her a place in the Heavenly Kindom.
    “Farewell for now, my beloved Sister, we shall meet again in Glory…Amen
