"Mummy was a generous spirit. I've known that since I turned three or four. It's hard to forget the sublime aroma of confectioneries inside what must have been a cake shop around old Gbagi or Oke Bola.  You couldn't have asked for a better treat turning three or four. Over the years Mummy Ayanniyi remained her old self: accommodating, generous and kind. She even pleaded with Rebecca to come over and raid her wardrobe from time to time.

Mummy, Thank you for the love, joy and the sunshine you brought to our lives. Thank you for your voice of wisdom. It;s hard to think about what our lives would have been without  them. Take your rest beloved Mum. Good night."

"Mummy, you were a major part of my life since inception, I grew up under your care, spiritual guidance and love. I remember when you influenced your sister's decision on placing in a state school instead of a missionary school even when admission has closed, though I was small, I  remember your word " ni so ni be, a ri omo Ibadan Kan to mo WA" and true to your words Folake Ojo was waiting to help out .  I'm not surprise at all the comments, you touched lives and gave the less privilege an opportunity to be someone in life. Mother, you left a legacy!!! Sleep on ma.
Bunmi Johnson Omowaiye"

"Mummy, it is with gratitude to God that I celebrate you today.  You were always so kind and courteous.  Indeed, you were unflinchingly so on each occasion that I had the privilege of meeting you. Mrs Ayanniyi was a signpost for decency and openminded charm. Your wonderful children are no less charming. They do you real justice. You will be sorely missed by all. But your God whom you served without flagging loves you more than all or any of us.
Rest on in the bosom of the master till the day when we shall meet to part no more."

"Mum, it's still hard to believe that you have passed, i cannot but remember our interactions especially during a training program i conducted in Akure and Tomilola had to bring you along. Your contributions were enormous to the extent that you even spoke more that the people the training was planned for. You were intelligent, friendly and suave. We will definitely miss you. Adieu ma!"

"Manmi Ayan,my special mama, you were A God sent to us in our family. You encouraged me in love & with Words of God. You made me realised that I can be whatever & whoever I need. In your own words & I quote "Agbeke mi, ma gbo ariwo oja"; meaning "don't listen to the noises from the crowd". These are your words to me over 30 years ago when I wanted to end my life. You comforted me, cancelled me with Words of God. Your joined force with my mum to help me through my difficult times . I appreciate you ma & also will miss talking to you over the phone. You have touched so many lives. Thank you for being the best. RIP."

"Thank you Lord for the gift of a great Mum...

I really want to say thank you Mum,  for everything you are to me. For the gift of Life,  for seeing me through school and supporting  me through life pursuits for being there at every opportunity ,  for the special heart you have for me and for always checking out on me,  for stopping by on your way to heaven to still find out if I was good!
Thank you mum for loving me unconditionally.
For your generous discipline while growing, I understand your fears as a mother -being a mother to six beautiful girls and maintaining discipline isn't an easy job,  seeing them through school and universities isn't a joke either. You're an icon,  a uniquely wired woman,  you're an achiever you came saw and conquered. God answered our prayers on you,  your enormous generosity paved the way for you. Nearer my God to thee nearer to the.  You beheld God's glory before you breathe your last breath, you sang, danced with heavenly beings while on Earth.
Death where is your Sting?
I Love you mum,  I sure will miss you till resurrection morning."
