Data Synger...a name you hear and never forget. .
.......you were my 'no stress' room mate in my 3rd year in Ife ..pretty..gist loving with a distinct and infectious laughter.
I am sad that this is where i get to reminisce about you after not seeing you for at least the last 18 years.
Your passing has taught me a painful lesson...we should endeavour to ask after friends we haven't seen or heard from in a while..a text..a call..an email.....
You are fondly remembered....rest in peace peace Data, may the Holy Spirit comfort, strengthen and uphold your family....Amen.

A tribute to My sis inlaw Aunty Data.

Your demise came as a shock and so heart breaking but we cannot question God as he giveth and taketh away.

Miss Dat as you were fondly called by family and friends was a strong lady, focused, kindhearted, accomodating, fashionister and lover of God.

You left us too soon and words fail us but you will always be in our hearts and souls.

We pray God to rest your soul 🙏

In Loving Memory of my very special cousin Data.

Data I had always known that there was something very special about you from the very first time I set eyes on you. I got to know you even better when I lived with you and your whole family before I got married. You were much more than family: you were such a fun loving cousin, sister and a friend at the same time. I still remember your laughter, all the fun times we had, the heart to heart chats and you found it very easy to confide in me. We lost contact over the years when I moved away but I still held you dear to my heart. I was very happy when you got married and was sad that I missed your wedding.
I was overjoyed at the family reunion in Lagos when Patrick got married. We hugged, took pictures and exchanged numbers. I met one of your children for the first time and was looking forward to meeting the others. Little did I know that this was going to be our last meeting. I was completely shocked when I was told that you had gone to our Creator. Data you went through a lot but you won the battle as there is no more pain. You are resting in peace now!

To your lovely children and husband; siblings: John, Mina, Dicta, Kaine, Nimi, Michael, Telema and your daddy, Chief Synger, I pray that God gives you the strength to bear this huge loss.

May your gentle soul continue to rest in perfect peace, Amen.

Data....very sad to hear of your passing. You were ever so beautiful, soft spoken and had a very infectious laughter. All the way from FGGC Sagamu days, I wondered how you always never lost your sense of humor when we were 'suffering' in boarding school but I found out it was your nature which I greatly admired.
May God Almighty who has found you worthy to come home to Him wipe the tears from the faces of all your loved ones and make your remembrance pure joy.
Though you have gone ahead, one day we will all meet again. May our meeting be joyful in Heaven. May the Lord teach us to number our days.
Keep resting Data...in God's bosom. 🌹🌹

My dearest and kindest aunty Data,

I miss you so much. Your kind words, beautiful face, lovely smile and magnificent laughter. You would always greet me by saying hello aunty Bisi and I would reply hello aunty Data.  You were always so welcoming and always made everyone feel comfortable. Shawn, Trinity, and I are honestly heartbroken that you have physically left this earth,  but not our hearts. Thank you for blessing us with knowing you. I only wish that you got a chance to meet the baby, but I'm glad you accepted her and welcomed her into our family. I pray that all your children will hang on to their wonderful memories of you and want you to know that Fumnaya will not be alone because she is and always will be everyone's daughter. We will continue to love and guide her. You will truly be missed. I am happy that you are now resting comfortable and at peace in the house of the Lord with our other family members that have departed. You are gone but never will you be forgotten.

I love you my dear cousin/sister/aunty

I chatted with Tosin Sodipo, on the 3rd of September, 2020. After asking how she was doing, my next question was, how Data was doing.

She told me, Data was in Canada, she didn’t mention that she was battling an ailment.

I don't know, maybe it's old age, I barely remember most people's names from our days in Ife, but I remember "DATA SYNGER'S” name. Her name was too unique for that village called ile-ife.

Now she has gone to be with the Lord, it dawned on me, that I remembered her, not only because her name was like a beautiful song, but because, Data was the song, beautiful, inside and out. Her laughter was so infectious and I remember one story told about someone's UK winter experience that didn't go too well, that story made her overflow in laughter.

Data, I know you are in Heaven resting with the Lord. I hope they allow story telling in Heaven, if they do, I'd love to share that same story again with you for a great laugh, just one more time.

Rest Data, Rest in the bosom of our Lord.🙏🏽

Dear mom,
I love you with everything I am. When you left this world on February 18th, I not only lost my mother. I lost my best friend, my ally, my supporter, my advisor, my role model and my hero. I know you heard God’s whisper, calling you home, you did not want to leave me, I saw how you fought with your illness for 15 years. You loved me sooo much that you held on tight, until all your strength was gone, and you could no longer hold on. You taught me love, patience and endurance. You taught me how to pray and lead by example. You were precious a gift from God, so much beauty, grace, love, selflessness and patience you possessed. You touched my heart in so many ways, your strength and smile even on dark days made me realise I had an angel beside me. We had so many memories I remember. My Mom also taught me about faithfulness. Over the years I have tried to emulate her the best way I could. If you start anything, always make sure to complete it. She also emphasized on the importance of keeping your word or promises. My mother also taught me to take care of others and the difference between right and wrong. She taught me to make the right decisions and reminded me about God’s kindness and love for me. You praised me whenever I did good and pointed out my mistakes with that gentle voice. You encouraged me to work hard in school and taught me how to read and write. I still remember your voice whenever you call me “Nana”. I think about you every day and you will never be forgotten. I know you are in a better place looking down on us, watching over me and nodding your head in approval. I want to tell you and the world you’ll always be in our hearts forever. I miss you so much my Angel. I will always love you forever mummy and will make you proud everyday.

Rest In Peace Mum❤️❤️

Dear Data,

It's still unbelievable that you are gone but God knows the best . I can still recollect some memories shared whilst we were in O.A.U together. May God grant your family the fortitude to bear the loss. Amen.
