Sylvester Oromoni, a student of Dowen College, would have turned 12 on December 4, 2021. However, just a few days after he was supposedly bullied at school, the young kid died.
Sylvester’s family members were devastated by the loss of their son, but they decided to mark his birthday in honor of him.
Sylvester’s birthday cakes were prepared and framed in large picture frames as a tribute to him.
A plane and a pilot’s outfit were modeled onto a birthday cake. Sylvester’s father had previously mentioned that his son had always wished to fly.
To commemorate the deceased’s birthday, the family gathered around the cake and sang a birthday song to the departed.
