The very moment you left, a huge part of me left, nothing is so important without you, you left us with very beautiful memories mum, I lean on you when it’s time to pray because you shoulder every problem that might face me. You gave all your life to God and work in his vineyard, I learnt to accommodate people from you, the last grain of food left in the house .. you will use it to feed people who lack, my queen of inestimable value, you’ve taken your beautiful face to heaven, you served God throughout your lifetime, even when you can no longer talk, when you listen to a Christian song _ you smiled … forever in my heart you shall be remembered, we lived together, ate together, gist together .. heaven knows a saint has come .for so many days I keep going to the mortuary expecting a miracle that you will wake up and tell me you faked your death.
I love you mum so much I’m glad and proud that I came through you .you’re a selfless person, a giver I remember when I was in labour of my last child, you drove down from Ibadan to get to my hospital with your prayer warrior around 11.30 pm in the night, a mother like you is rare. Sisi Mii is gone if am privileged to choose in my next life.

IN MEMORY OF MY BEAUTIFUL MUM
I miss you so dearly my Angel. Your love lives on within my heart, with memories of you in my mind.
You were such a blessing to our family. I am eternally grateful mum for your love and sacrifices for me. Your love for God and people terrifies me. Serving God selflessly and wholeheartedly was your top priority. Thank you for leading me to Christ. Thank you for teaching me how to love God with all of me.
I miss you and love you, my darling mum. Words can’t describe the void you created but I trust the Holy Spirit to fill it with his peace. You left me memories to last a lifetime and I will cherish them forever. As we lay you to rest today, I celebrate and honour you my Queen and the matriarch of our family. We all miss you, your grandkids talk about you every day.
Christ said it is finished, your work is done Proverbs 10:7 blessed is the memory of the just, but the name of the wicked shall rot.
Rest in peace my love!!
You have found peace with your maker.
MY SWEET GRAMZ
The one who took me in and looked after me. We basically did everything together. Made sure you baked me a cake for all my birthdays. I love you so much and I miss you. I fight the tears so much, I see you in my dreams now. I miss teasing you, I miss you reporting everyone to me .you were everything to me. I wanted you to wait a little bit more, I wanted you to meet your great-grandchild but it would have been selfish of me. You really fought to stay on but God wanted you home.
My Grandma with the purest of hearts, Funny, Caring and accommodating always smiling and giggling. Always has a gist for me. You are my Angel and I know you will continue to protect and look over us. Without any doubt I know you loved me wholeheartedly, without doubt, I was your favourite .1 will forever love you my sweet grandma and the house is so empty without you. Continue to rest in peace, my Guardian Angel. Forever your baby girl.
I said goodbye to my mother in October last year. Although, of course, I had been saying goodbye to her
long before the day her body finally caught up with her mind. When last I came home briefly to see you, little did I know you were set to get on your sail? My mother was one of the strongest, bravest, and kindest humans to grace this planet. Without her, I wouldn’t be here today, I wouldn’t be the person I am, and I wouldn’t have the life I have. She is everything to me and more, and there’s no way I could ever quantify the importance she’s held in my life. Mum’s relationship with God was a living one. Jesus Christ was the lover of her soul, and she walked with him and talked with him, she always prayed with passion, power, understanding, and many tears. She was a woman of great courage who faced every problem with confidence and in complete reliance upon her ever-present lord.
Beyond education and religion. our late mother died a moralist and disciplinarian. To date, my mind still travels back to those days in retrospection, of how this courageous woman nurtured and moulded us to be who and what we are today. From time to time, she would pause and remind us of the need for
us to make kindness our second nature. She loved us all and pointed us to her greatest treasure (Jesus). Mum delightfully served her husband and loved him dearly.
And as a hardworking woman, the word impossibility never existed in her dictionary because she faced every task with the determination to succeed and excel. We all witnessed those bold moves while growing up.
No doubt your parting has left a deep void, but we will fill it with memories, of joy, laughter, friendship, and kisses that we shared. I fervently pray that; all you’ve prayed for us during your lifetime continue to follow us until our last breath. I can’t finish this without appreciating all those that stood with us at the time of our grief. No doubt, your presence, your outpoured prayers and consolations via direct calls. text messages, and on social media was overwhelming, calming, and encouraging. I really can’t thank you enough, but I pray to God to reward you abundantly. Thank you mummy for everything. Even though you never said it, I still say I was your favourite, I can see my sisters rolling their eyes …. Hahaha.
I love you Mum and hope I will continue to make you proud as I celebrate your life and honour you by being the very best of me that I can be. The Bible tells us that in God’s presence there is fullness of joy and on his right-hand pleasures forevermore. Therefore, Mother, enjoy your reward of salvation with joy unspeakable and full of glory.
Forever your girl… Omolola
