|Let the memory of Adefemi be with us forever|
"Adefemi I can't believe it's one year already.
Even as the sun goes down to the end of the day..... its rising on a new horizon somewhere far away. You are forever in our hearts you are greatly missed.
"My dearest Adefemi, you can never be forgotten as you were a superstar/megastar. We all miss you ever so much because you sure left a great impact on our lives. You were a very super-special gift from Almighty God!! May your gentle soul continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord!"
"Cannot believe it's been a year. Miss you loads. Continue to rest in peace my dearest aburo. You will never be forgotten."
"You are still missed. Continue to rest in peace."
"Continue to Rest in Peace Femi..You are truly missed but we are assured you are nestled in the bossom of the Lord... Miss You.."
"Adefemi, your warring spirit and legacy of faith lives on in our hearts.
We miss you dearly."
"Continue to rest in the Lord Adefemi. We will forever hold those wonderful memories you have left us with. xx"
"My dearest Adefemi,
Today marks one year you left us. I really miss you; your care, concerns and love which you readily gave regardless of your own personal challenges. Really believed you were going to pull through but your marker who you served with all loyality and faith decided you had finished your course and assignment and it was time to take a bow . Continue to sleep well dearly beloved sister. You have asked us not to weep or mourn but continue to cherish the sweet memories we had with you.
"My dear Adefemi,
I think about you a lot and miss you dearly. Heaven is the richer for having you there no doubt. I was going through our emails and came across one that you sent me on the 7th of January. You signed off prophetically.....
2016 My year of:
- Abundance of Rain
- Conforming to His Image
Truly all those things were manifested in your life in 2016. I am so glad have entered your Jubilee and I am comforted that each day that passes is one more day closer to being with you in eternity forever. Until then my dear friend......rest well in Christ."
"Forever with the Lord!!! Today 17th February 2017marks a year when you joined the Saints Triumphant! Hallelujah!
We love you but the Lord loves more and we believe You have found
Peace with Him. Adefemi you will forever live in our hearts.
We miss you, your charm, your prayers and your love.' Continue to rest with your Maker till we meet to part no more. Amen."
"Like a flower we bloom and then later fade away......
That is life....C'est la vie......
When you blaze a trail with the word.....and help to give clarity to confused hearts....
When you build many souls with Agape.....and show them the way....
When you water faltering spirits with your warmth.....and keep them in soar......
Then your bloom defies the seasons of life......and stays forever young.....
Then you have won........Victory in Jesus Adefemi....your light shines on.....
Gone but not forgotten ......"
"Thanking the Good Lord for a life lived so courageously and inspiringly....
Often have quiet moments when the feelings of your loss are overwhelmingly painful...
But thanking the Good Lord who always gives the Victory; Rest in His Bosom where all is Well."

Sai watarana da zamu hadi. Xx"
"Adefemi, we remember you today and we know you are in a glorious place. I truly miss your calls and words of encouragement. You will forever remain in our hearts. You left us a legacy and good testimony.
We will cherish that till we see you in glory."
"Miss you sweetie."
"Adefemi, you're fondly remembered always, especially on your buffday today. We miss you so and are consoled that you are in a better place up above in the heavenlies. Continue to rest in the Lord till we meet again. Sleep on beloved cousin xx"
"My dear Femi, today would have been your 47th birthday. Happy birthday my darling, and this is just a little message to let you know, that you will be forever in our hearts and thoughts.
I know that you are smiling, knowing fully well, that we will all meet again in Jesus's name.
Continue to rest well my darling. You are missed!"
"Happy birthday Femi! I know you are in heaven and the Angels are celebrating with you! We miss you but know you are in a better place! Love Oyibo and Fynda"
"Happy Birthday Adefemi. As you celebrate this birthday from the best place in the entire Universe I remember you with much love and gratitude to have met such a precious soul that you were. You are still sorely missed but we will meet again soon."
"Adefemi you came, you touched mankind, your love for all a testimony to your love for God. Sunre as we celebrate you."
"Dearest, you would have been 47 today. Still painful you are gone but glad you are with Lord Jesus. Continue to rest in peace my dear Cousin."
"Adefemi, Miss you always, love the association we had, You'll forever be remembered as a fine human being, above all you love the Lord."
"Darling Fem fem,
it would have been your 47th birthday today 23Rd June. Miss you loads.
Rest in peace."
Today 23rd June 2016 we would have been celebrating your birthday. I would have called you at midnight , prayed and wished you well. We miss you so much. I know you are celebrating with the angels. You remain forever in our hearts .
"My darling Sister, today would have been your birthday, it was four months on Friday continue to rest in peace. I miss you so much!"
"Adefemi ( spirigimgim!!) you touched so many lives ( including mine) by your faith in Christ. Despite the things you went through you were always a joy to talk to. Your advise was always on point and very unselfish. I remember the last discussion i had with you it was all about God and his faithfulness towards us . Christ was always the center of it all for you and indeed you have left a legacy of what a true friend should be. Till we meet at his feet rest in perfect peace my beloved."
"My dear Adefemi, another femi gone in the family in a few months! O ye olorun oh!
Thank you for my efo,which was best ever,thank you for your support,which was constant, thank you for making plans for me to go to Isreal. Sun re oh Adefemi.
Aunty,Tilly,Kemi and keye, all I can say is that it is a HARD road, it is DIFFICULT road ,and it is a most PAINFUL walk! Come Lord Jesus,come now. Amen."
"Dearest coz Fem,
I struggle every day when I realise I can't just pick up the phone and say hi. I will miss your sage wisdom concerning Church politics and your delight in my spiritual growth however small.
I will miss you calling me "Erelu" and laughing at my jokes. I am so PROUD of you and what you achieved in your time here on earth. You ran your race elegantly and with precision to rival Usain Bolt in the Olympics!
May your gentle soul rest in peace, till we meet again,
Folasade "Erelu" Abiodun"
"Dear Femi, you did not only come to this earth, but also touched so many lives positively as the Lord granted you the grace. May you receive your good rewards as you rest on the heart of our Lord Jesus Christ. Keep resting in peace till we all meet at His feet."
"Adefemi ever smiling, ever warm....heaven has surely gained an angel. Rest in perfect peace my dear friend."
My dear sister-cousin-friend! Wonderful woman of God! I give all praise to Him for your life. Thank you for always being there for me. You inspired me with your faith and awed me with the dignity and grace with which you handled things. You lived life to the full and I'm honoured to have been a part of that life.
You fought hard to stay with us and now I'm comforted by the knowledge that you are indeed in a better place.
Rest in peace! I miss you and you will always be unforgettable to me."
We are grateful to Almighty God for your life and thankful for the priviledge of being a part of it.
You were an extraordinary human being and a faithful disciple of Christ.
So valiant, so unafraid in your physical battle. You lived always believing and planning for another tomorrow. We are sad because all your tomorrows are no longer with us on this physical plane, yet we take solace in the inspirational message you left us all.
You ran this race of life with endurance and dignity fixing your eyes always on the love of our Lord Jesus.
Thank you Femi for planning to visit in March. We all blocked our calenders and so looked forward to it.
Our comfort is knowing that all your tomorrows are now in eternity where you are resting in perfect peace in the arms of the Almighty.
We are so proud of you.
Goodnight our dear Aburo till we meet to part no more.
Uncle Olumuyiwa and Aunty Gbemi"
"Our dear cousin Femi, it was a shock to learn about your unexpected passing but we know you are now resting in the arms of our everlasting father.
As David wrote in Psalms, "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever." Psalm 23:6
It goes without saying that you'll be so missed - your heart and love for your family and friends, your infectious laugh and beaming smile,
your selflessness and sacrifice, your generosity and kindness, I could go on and on and on. Needless to say, we lost a rare diamond but heaven gained an angel.
Till we meet again,
Much Love Tolulope Oduntan, on behalf of the Oduntan family"
"As your "Earth suit" is laid to rest today, Adefemi, we know that your essence is already in your eternal home, in the presence of The Lord you loved so much. I pray that He will wrap His loving arms around all whose hearts are breaking at your passing and comfort them like only He can. Adieu, Adefemi! You fought a good fight. Goodnight!"
"Adefemi, a true Ambassador of our Lord Jesus Christ. You modelled Christ remarkably with courage, confidence, focus, strength and undeniable extraordinary joy rising above circumstances that presented. Your cheerful disposition encouraged me in immeasurable ways. It’s crushing when I think I’ll be missing all this as well as that voice so uniquely yours which always brought a surge of encouragement for me each time you said "Mimi". I thank God for the privilege of having you as a friend and sister, one who cared and always made a positive contribution in my life. I remain comforted knowing you are safe in the arms of Jesus. It gladdens my heart knowing without a doubt you have won a victor’s crown. You are truly blessed. Adieu my dear Femi till we meet to part no more at the bosom of our Lord Jesus - Mimi xxx"
"My precious Adefemi, I miss you so much already. Solely by the grace of God is strength found, not to mourn as those who have no hope, as scripture instructs us. So I choose to rejoice, knowing our Heavenly Father has welcomed you home. You played a significant and God ordained strategic role in my life, as a mentor, encourager, intercessor and confidant.
I will always cherish your every phone call and email that seemed to come when I needed them the most. Thank you for investing in me and for the seed you sowed in my life. With God's help, I will make you proud. Rest in peace my precious cousin. I love you."
"Femi, You were so full of encouragement and good cheer.
Rest in eternal peace."
"Adefemi dear sister and friend, your life was an inspiration, a challenge and an encouragement to those of us who were privileged to be a part of your journey. You fought a good fight of faith, you endured hardship as a good solider of Christ and you kept the faith. You were not a victim of your circumstances, but you lived victoriously and triumphantly above your circumstances. You enjoyed life, went on vacations even wrote a book. You lived independently, drove yourself around and you were even contemplating buying your own house. In spite of all that you went through, you remain steadfast in your faith, unmovable always confessing the word of God.
You defied death several times and dumbfounded medical doctors by your tenacious faith and absolute trust in the integrity of the word of God. You taught us so many things including how to suffer well, how to count it all joy in the midst of trials and to remain steadfast and unshakable in the face of adversity.
2 Corinthians 2:14 “now thanks be unto God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place” Adefemi even in death, you continue to diffuse the fragrance of His knowledge. We all prayed for your healing, God answered our prayers because you are now healed, whole and resting in the bosom of our Lord and savior.
We all took it for granted, being a warrior that you are, that you would keep on fighting. But I guess, you saw a glimpse of heaven and could not resist the urge to be in the glorious presence of your savior and Lord. Rest on dear friend till we meet to part no more. Like you always say “Jesus is Lord”."
"Femi . . . . that smile and laughter! Always remember your kind and considerate nature. Rest in perfect peace. God bless"
We thank God for your life and may your soul rest in perfect peace."
"Wemimo , accept my condolences. May her soul rest in the bossom of the Lord."
"Adefemi, your love for the Lord and others was evident. Though your journey here was short it was worth it. We'll meet again in glory, but until then enjoy the company of angels and the fellow over-comers."
"Femi, you were a beautiful and kind lady. You were so cheerful and I remember an occasion when I had to ferry you on my back across the flooded street at Idejo St., V.I. You expressed endless gratitude for such small favour. You were a good friend to talk to and advised me many a times as and beyond being my EA. You were a real gem. Adieu! Rest in Perfect Peace."
"This is shocking....we give God all the glory for your life and assured that you are resting with Him....thanks for the opportunity to work with you...will forever remember your kindness, your wonderful smile and willingness to support your colleagues....God bless you Femi....."
This is so sad, I heard of your passing and just couldn't believe it. We got to know you briefly while in Reigate and remember your infectious smile and constant optimism. I checked our last email exchanges and leave below the phrase you shared then
The Lord God is a Sun and Shield... No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly... Psalm 84:11
May your Soul Rest in eternal Perfect Peace Femi - Amen…"
Quite shocking! But again, I trust that you are in a better place with the Lord now. Will always remember your soothing smiles
...Do continue to rest in the Lord."
"What a heart rending news! No wonder, you have been on my mind.
Dear Adefemi, you lived a smiley and selfless life. You fought the good fight of faith. You apprehended that for which you were apprehended and now, you receive your eternal crown of righteousness. Adieu."
Rest in the bosom of the Lord...waiting for the sound of the trumpet...."
"I have just heard. I praise my God our God for a fearless sister who never gave up in pain nor on want for a better Nigeria and world. Her love for Christ was Unmistakable and healing flowed through her out towards all. Her pray full warrior watched over us in the night in intersession and fervent heart. I will weep and mourn now for such was her light that only she could shine for the Lord. But I will praise You almighty God for allowing one so dear to be with you now. The ultimate healing is with you and it's all about you and adefem never compromised. Jubilate deo! Psalm 100!"
"Adefemi, it is comforting to know that you are at peace, you are at rest now. You loved the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind and despite the storms, your faith in Christ remained unshaken. You were and would always be an inspiration to all who know you. Rest in perfect peace."
"My beautiful friend
We have travelled together in friendship, your smile could light the darkest room, your voice of wisdom could light the darkest of challenges. You showed me what courage looked like, you taught me what patience felt like and you demonstrated what purserviance was. The greatest gift you gave me was showing me to praise the Lord in our darkest times and be graceful.
A true woman of God who is now dancing amongst her Angels.
I miss you... Simply because you impacted my life in so many beautiful ways by just simply being you and our loss is heaven's gain.
Ade....' All is well 'xxx Jo B"
adieu, we part to meet again someday. your life of faith and positive confession is contagious. you have only gone to rest in the bosom of your Lord, reap a good harvest of the impact you made while here and join the cloud of witnesses written about in hebrews. You are now my "senior" in heaven's chronology. till we meet again. Love u."
"Just seen on FB that you have gone to Glory. Wishing your family a lot of strength in this time of sadness. We'll see you again one day"
"My dear friend, every time I cry, I hear your voice saying" o ye olorun" .
I guess I had gotten used to you always there! it was a rude shock to me when I got the call from Doyin around 3am!
Well done my friend, you came you saw and conquered. It is left for us here and now to finish our race well!
Doyin and I would never forget you, you were the beginning of our story, you would always be mentioned in our story and history.
My Brave friend, my always loving, never condemning!,always truthful.a good confidant. Oh! You introduced me to prayer warfare,
I will forever miss you , your unique laughter, even when things are going the other way. Thank you for being my friend, even when I was at the lowest ebb of life! Rest on at the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ."
"I am completely speechless, i don't know what to say. I love you too much Adefemi. I am dumbfounded. Till we meet again, till we meet again. Rest in HIS presence."
"My darling Adefem, Fem! My sister, friend and confidant. Where do I start? I can only begin where you would have started if you were writing to me and that is to thank God for the day we met in 1979. In the 37yrs since, you have been an awesome and loyal friend. I’m forever grateful for your love, kindness, generosity and support. Words are not enough to describe you. You were a truly unique person, an extra special human being who despite her illness went beyond the call of duty for her friends and family. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need, for looking out for me, for encouraging me, for not judging me. You have left a void in my life that will be difficult to fill. In my own selfish way I wanted you here with me forever but I know that it was difficult and you put up a good fight. I know you are at peace, where you are. There’ll be no one to have those long chats at night with anymore. I miss you so badly it hurts to my core. However, you set an example in being strong and faithful in the way you served God with passion and dedication. It was only the other day that you were saying that you felt you could do a lot more to serve him. I felt you could do no more in your truthfulness to him so I have no doubt that you will be there in the new Jerusalem where there is no pain or gnashing of teeth. I am sure you are riding in the clouds, shining like the star you are right now. To quote you “I’m in God’s hands and that is the best place to be”. Yes, you are in his hands, there is no better place to be. Thank you for being such a good friend. I miss you. Rest in peace my darling sister until we meet again."
Adefemi, there is not enough space for me to write you a tribute so I have summarised my tributes above.
You are an incredible woman of God, fallen asleep in the Lord because you are blessed.
Goodnight sweet friend you have not left us, you have only crossed to heaven to look at things from above.
I love you.
I will always remember your kindness, very caring nature and how thoughtful you were to everyone you met. I feel so honoured to have been your friend and I will really miss you a lot. You always put other people first and lived out your deep faith in Christ daily. I know you are safe with Jesus, at peace, free from pain and suffering. Thank you for inspiring and increasing my faith in Jesus. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend and I look forward to seeing you again one day in heaven. With much love, Ellie x"
"Whilst shocked to hear that you had been called 'home' I have subsequently thought about what an amazing example you have been to all of us at RBC.
It is often said that we are not defined by the heights we reach, but by how we handle adversity. You showed us all that with God by your side you were a shining beacon of unshakable faith and fortitude.
Thank you for this legacy.
So sorry we can't be at the funeral as we are in the US.
Until we meet again
Much love Glenn, Michelle, Jack, Alexis & Luke Hirchfield"
"Adefemi, you'll be so missed. I love your courage and your wisdom in Christ and for Christ. We love you. We also love where you are now. Thank You for the inspiration that you are and for the light you shone on this world xX"
What a fighter you were, you fought hard. I just assumed you would always be here, carrying on with Life. You were such an inspiration as your strength and fortitude seemed to have no bounds. You will be greatly missed but your memory will continue to inspire anyone who ever met you. Rest in Peace now."
"Dear Adefemi, it is very difficult to put my feelings about you in words, because there is just so much to say about you.
You were a very kind considerate person, who despite your poor health cared for others. You took time in listening and learning about other people's problems, and I remember clearly, the full support that you gave me, when I was facing some challenges 10 years ago. You were there for me, and even when I left the United Kingdom, you always wanted to know how I was coping in Nigeria.
You were a wonderful and genuine person, who I will miss dearly, but I know that wherever you are now, you will be at peace.
You were also an excellent Christian, who was always faithful to the LORD. I know for sure, that you will be rewarded for that quality.
I have known you since you were a child, and I am proud and very comfortable to call you my sister. I love you very much, and you will be forever in my heart, till we meet gain.
The last time, we spoke was a few weeks ago, when I popped into London for a few days. I remember telling you, that I was proud of you.
Rest in peace Adefemi, and may all those that you have left behind find comfort in the fact, that you are now in a better place."
Rest in peace in the bosom of your maker......"
"Dearest Femi, I write with a combination of sadness because I will no longer see you in this life again and joy because you are in a better place. You gave me the perfect gift on my 50th birthday. The gift of prayer, at the time little did I know that it would be the last time I would speak to you. You were faithful to your creator to the end. Despite all you went through you always cared for others more than you did for yourself. I have wonderful memories of you as a little girl and later as a young woman. You were as beautiful on the outside as you were on the inside. You taught me never to be selfish. Femi, you will be missed terribly, but I take heart that we will meet again. God bless you."
"I called you 008, and I was 007; from our Accenture days.
We had such great fun when we visited you and Momsie in Redhill some Decembers back; Nike and the girls felt they'd known you since forever. We kept talking of a Part II to that visit that will now never be...another painful reminder life's nothing but ephemeral.
The girls always cracked us up as they struggled to pronounce the 'p' in your lovely book 'The Adventures of Ijapa' when they got a copy. You never ceased speaking of where you wanted to visit next and how you'd have to improvise around your strict schedule to make it happen. Last time we spoke it was about plans to visit Nigeria.
You were a bastion of hope and resilience, constantly cheerful and a practical teacher. I learnt some important lessons about life from you Adefemi. Good night my dear friend."
"Saddened with the news of your passing unto glory... I bless God for the life you lived here on earth...
Glad you met with and lived for Jesus which is our only assurance that you're in a much better place in heaven and you now rest in the bosom of our Saviour.
Heaven is a much beautiful place with you Adefemi... Rest in the Lord until we meet again as I'm fully persuaded that 'when the row is called up yonder', we will see to part no more...
You're loved and will truly be missed!"
"Femi, it really saddens my heart to hear of your passing. You were my friend, my love and my sister. I wish you were Ijapa, you would have defeated death but you are a child of God, you devoted your life living & all to your friend, brother& master 'Jesus'. I will miss your voice on the other end of the phone calling 'boyfriend mo ti sack e'. I know I will miss you dearly. To the Adebajos accept profound sympathy. May your dear soul rest in peace. I am more than sure you are with friend & master Jesus."
"My kind hearted sister. It was a great shock to hear of your demise. I will miss your loving and caring nature. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace."
"I met Adefemi just about two years ago, not quite connecting her with my friend Tilewa. We met in Israel through my sister Ayotola. She told me of her friend who had some special needs, but is very interested in coming for the Israel Trip. We decided to rent a couple of apartments in town to accommodate Adefemi's requirements. This proved to be a divine decision and I had the most amazing two weeks with this wonderful saint of the Lord. I was somehow apprehensive before meeting her, but from the first evening we sat together, I just became so comfortable with her. We connected and I realised she was Tilly's sister. Her profound faith, her deep love for the Lord, her positive outlook, her compassion, her love and generosity and her doggedness at achieving her goals were quite evident in these two weeks. She also had so much grace on her and just attracted favour everywhere we went. She made me think of how much personal strength she actually had, as she juggled the rigours of the gruelling Israel tours, with long hours of prayers and days on the dialysis machines in Israel. This woman was simply amazing.
I think the highlight of the trip was the Baptism at the Jordan river. Adefemi did not come with the Tour bus that morning and had to come up using taxis and Sherut (Mini Buses). She timed her arrival almost to the minute and we were able to Baptise her in the River Jordan. What a privilege! What an honour!
Adefemi you were an inspiration. You radiated the joy of the Lord. You were full of grace and you carried a tangible peace about you. Your love for the Lord made you so charismatic. I know you are enjoying the splendour of the supreme majesty of the Lord Jesus Christ and I know you would not swap that for anything. So all I can say is we miss you, but we know we shall see you later. Rest in Peace.
Pastors Charles and Abiodun Abraham"
"It is a rude shock hearing the news of your death on that faithful Wednesday morning. Adefemi is a rare gem. Someone that has strong faith in Christ. Despite everything going on with her she remain firm in the Lord. She going to be greatly miss in the family circle. Our family pastor is no more. Adiue! dear sister till meet to part no more."
"She was a beautiful woman with a beautiful soul. we'll meet again some day,my baby sister ...sun re o Adefemi xx"
"My Dearest Aburo,
I recollect like yesterday our hour long conversation on December 13th 2015. Its impossible to have a 5 minute catch up conversation with you and we both never seem to run out of gist. I was especially thrilled that you made the pilgrimage to Israel, a place I also cherish. Your motherly tone of voice was infectious and I can just picture you now having a conversation with the lord in his kingdom surrounded by his angels.
Femi I want to ask you for a favour. I know for sure that you are seated at the right hand of our father cos you worshiped him all your life. . Please look out for me and appeal to our father on my behalf that I am
trying my best to live my life as he says. Please also tell him to protect us left behind especially Auntie, Tilly, Biola, Bros T, Peju, Kemi, Keye. Arenike, Fikayo, Ife and AdeT.
Till we meet again. Farewell my sis.
""Now the labourer's task is over
Now the battle-day is past;
Now upon the farther shore
Lands the voyager at last.
Father,in Your gracious keeping
Leave we now your daughter sleeping."
Knowing and being with Adefemi is a privilege I will cherish for ever.
I say "Good night" until we meet again at His throne.
Sadly missed. God of all comfort, please console family and friends.
"There is a Friend that sticks closer than a Sister, and that is you Adefemi. I am grateful for the times we had together especially our conversations in Israel and throughout last month. Your going has left a void. It hurts so much and I will miss you terribly but I am so happy that you have gone to rest. This indeed was your year of abundance of rain, your year of being conformed to the image of Christ, your year of Jubilee! Till we meet again, ore mi...."
"You've fought the good fight of the faith. You took hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Rest in him........."
"My dear dear Sister Femi,
You inspired, you were full of passion, you were true, you were dependable. You were indeed a very special person.
I pray that you will now have eternal rest, having corageously fought a good fight.
Sun re aburo."
"My Dear Adefemi,
God loves you more. Continue to rest in peace."
Rest in peace, my heart is heavy but I am consoled because you are in a better place. You taught me what true strength meant. You were a Woman of Faith, so confident, always so positive with a can do attitude. I remember all our numerous conversations fondly, I will miss you dear friend."
"Femi , Resting in the bosom of the Lord ! Your courage , your strength and your faith are a testament to the goodness of God . You fought the good fight and kept the faith . Heaven has received you with Angels singing glorious Halleluyahs ."
"Dear Femi rest in peace. You will forever remain in my heart for you radiated love. I know you are seating at the Lords table because you lived an exemplary life."
"We do not mourn your transition, indeed we do miss you. In fact you've left an unfill able gap! But we do not mourn you. Your desire was that we thank God for and not mourn you. You're in a better place. Your confession and professions attest to it. Your sweetness and smiles against all odds attest to it and also the word of God attest to it. You took your bow gracefully and passed the baton to us. Adieus till we meet at the feet of Jesus"
"I am still in shock! Can't believe you are gone. Short of words at the moment but glad you are in a better place. You had such a happy soul. Rest in peace my dear Cousin."
"Dear Mrs Adebajo, children, grandchildren and extended family. I am kindly conveying my deepest sympathy to you for the passing on of your beloved Femi. We are kindly requesting that God grant you His Grace, and Peace during this extremely difficult time. we would like to share Psalm 34 verses 1 and 4 with you: "I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth"; "I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." with warm wishes Dawn, Simone, Danielle, Marcel and Nina.
Femi: You remain in our prayers and we know that you are Happy in God's special place that He had prepared for you. all our love. Dawn and the girls."
"Adefemi, still can't believe you are no longer with us. We thank God for your life and faith in God. A song says - "The strife is o'er, the battle done; the victory of life is won; the song of triumph has begun: Alleluia!"
You are in a better place now. May your gentle soul rest in peace."
"A great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again A quote from Maya Angelou
You will be missed but we are encouraged that you are resting in the bosom of Our God. You touched so many lives and that memory is what we will all hold on to. Rest in peace dear sister."
"Adefemi,I used to think you must have been in the military in your previous life(if there was anything like that)! You were a true christian per excellence! You were a great fighter and an unbelieavable warrior in every positive way.So amazing how you were able to have a very everlasting & positive impact on everyone. Almighty God really gave you that amazing strength. You will forever be very special to me. You were a star! Miss & love you forever! Sun Re! Rest in Perfect Peace!"
"Your death came to us as a shock but we are comforted by the word of God, may you find peace with your maker. The comfort of the holy spirit will permeate through the heart of your loved ones and the LRA family. Rest in peace sister Femi."
"I can't say bye yet, but I will. After I have gone through every letter, email, text and BBm. After I've put together all the pictures I have of you in a safe place, close and within reach. After I've done some of the things I told you I would do, but didn't. ..then I'll come back and try to say bye Fems. Not yet, but soon."
May your gentle soul rest in peace!!"
"We chatted last month about visiting Florida next year, I didn't know it would be our last...my heart hurts knowing you are gone. You were an inspiration and a big sister to me back in my LRA days and I will never forget it. I only wish I had told you more often. I love and will miss you. Rest in his bosom Cos."
"From our view, It hurts! but from your view. You are now present with The Lord.. what a consolation..Rest on dear sister!"
"Dear Femi, rest in peace with the Angels. I will forever remember your smiles and kindness.xx"
Feels so unreal. Can't believe you've gone just like that. Thank you for your prayers and being there for me when I was ill. Thank you for your strength. Saw you last at aunty's Service and I was so sure we would catch up later. Our last conversation keeps going round my head now. Love you but God loves you more. You have inspired me with your strong faith, your cheerfulness and the only consolation is that you are up there with the angels. Sleep well, beautiful soul."
I know it's being ages since we last saw each other. Thank goodness for face book; at least we were able to communicate and I am so glad we did. Sleep well! dear friend. You are in a better place far far away. We will meet again to part no more RIP"
"Indeed, you fought a good fight like a good soldier of the Lord, finished the race and kept the FAITH proudly. Certainly, the crown of righteousness is waiting for you. Sleep on my dear friend and sister, Adefemi Adebajo. It is well!"
"We may never understand but God sure understand why you were gone too soon........I was opportune to spend several hours with our dearly beloved sis. Adefemi Adebajo in early December 2015 here in Dublin at Beaumont Hospital and I was dazed and in total awe of her unwavering faith, her passion for God made me felt like answering the alter call again, her will, drive, tenacity for Jesus was evident; I would often go blank and lost in my thought and she has a way of pulling me back to reality of the WORD of God which according to her words and her testimony she has evidently lived in the past 11 years. She was bubbly and full of life and joy, we even took some selfie together. (teary eyes........) I remember picking her up from the hotel where she stayed to the hospital, I dropped her for the clinic appointments and promised to be back in a few hours; and she sent me a message on whatsapp to bring her an apple-pie from McDonald upon my return.....it was the first time as an Ekiti man to know how an apple-pie looked like....as I expected it was a kind of a drink and it turned out to be an actual pie......and I though to myself an ''aje-butter'' will always be an ''aje-butter'' and that was who you were Femoooo an ''aje-butter'' to the core...... I watched you devour the ''apple-pie'' with delight and felt great it was worth all the diversion despite the rush hour traffic in Dublin to the closest McDonald to get you your request.......the clinic appointment itself was ''successful'' and I remember you asking me to take you for shopping to bring some souvenir with you to London to people special to you; we went to the Pavilion Shopping Center in Swords Dublin and I vividly remember you picking up really expensive gift-items to take with you back to London, and after your shopping we even had a meal together at Nandos in company of your best friend Adebanke Oluborode....I had a glimmer of hope that all was going to be well......but God in His infinite wisdom know better......Kabiosi! A rare gem you were and I have no doubt that you have gone to be with the Lord; now resting in a better place in the bosom of God. It is still hard for me to take in and I wish all L.R.A family members both at home and in the diaspora as well as friends and families all across the planet the inner fortitude to bear your passing away...... sun re ooo!"
"Adefemi, may you rest in the bosom of the Lord. God loves you most. The heaven will rejoice to welcome you home."
"Adefemi darling , U R one of a kind , I thank Gof for yre beautiful life, U said it all ... May the Lord strength all your family U left behind , We celebrate your life indeed , Rest on my dear friend in the bosom of the Most high"
"Adefemi, may your beautiful soul continue to rest in eternal peace. You gave so much. Always with a smile and ever so positive. A woman after God's heart; you were special. We first met when I attended the Living spring fellowship which used to meet at your flat when we were in LASU. Can one think about Femi and not think about your walk and work with God? You were a real inspiration. Sleep well Adefemi, we are hurting but you are definitely in your Father's bosom where there is no more pain... x"
"My dear Adefemi, I miss you terribly! Your kindness, your generosity, your cheerfulness in the face of adversity, your steadfast faith in our Almighty God, your constant thirst for knowledge and your powerful academic and social writings are some of your glowing qualities, worthy of emulation by all of us. Rest in peace with the Lord."
What a blessing to have met you? What a joy Living Spring contributed to our Christian development and walk?
Looking back, I can only say thank you for all the lives that was touched and destinies that was shaped upon that mountain. xxx"
So young and taken from us so soon, may you rest in peace and thoughts are with your family at this sad time RIP sweet angel x x x x"
"My dearest Adefemi. You were such a beautiful soul. The memory of you when we all celebrated Kemi's Birthday is one that will stay in my mind forever. Our consolation is that you are resting in the bossom of the Lord. Continue to rest in perfect peace."
"Such a young live! God doesn't keep great Angels around long on this earth once their jobs are done. May Adefemi's soul rest in peace. My condolences."
"Adefemi, you fought the good fight, you finished the race, above all you kept the faith. The memory of you that always kept on in my mind is your posture & voice introducing moment of truth before Our Pastor and father in the Lord Pastor Tunde Bakare starts the teaching of the word in the 90s. May your gentle soul rest in peace."
"Your departure is painful, could not hold back tears of memories of our days at LRA, as fellow worker and then secretary to Pastor T. During our days at LRA. And even more recently at Celebration of Life service of Late Mum Odubunmi we chatted and chatted even to the car park, but for the brethren that brought you I wanted to drop you at home.
Sis you are now in company of angels and host of Heaven.
The comfort of The Lord be with us your brethren and you families, till we meet to part no more in Heaven.
"Rest in peace Femi. God bless xx"
"Woman of Faith ... Rest in Peace"
"My dear and kind and genoerous sprited friend, your heart was too big to beat long in this world. I will miss your gentle courage and support, your wonderful perspective on the world and your amazing ability to take life by the day and live in this cruel and beautiful world. I was so happy to have you in my life and to be able to turn to you to discuss so many things. And I envied your faith which was strong to the end. Rest in sublime peace now, your battle is over. How grateful am I to have had you in my life x"
"Adefemi, This is so painful but I know you would want us to do as the Bible says which is to give thanks in all things. I thank God for your life which was such an inspiration. Goodnight dear dear aburo. Rest in perfect peace in the bosom of your maker who you loved so much."
"Femi,my cherished one,I didn't believe at first but it's true,I will miss u so much,you were one true heart that I will never let go,the impact you made in my life spiritually lives on in me.To me you will always be alive in my heart till we meet again with the Lord.Love u still my Angel."
"To God be the glory great things he has done.Who are we to question the most high . ,( Didun ni iranti olododo), Femi we love you but Jesus loves you more.I look forward to what we discussed but it never happened.You are a rear Gem, always smiling as if you were not going through stuff, Your crown is waiting for you Oh saint of God"
Words fail me . You came, you saw and you conquered. You fought a good fight of faith and to the glory of God you are resting in a better place. You will be greatly missed...Sleep on beautiful soul"
"Sleep on and sleep well my dear friend. You fought well and hard but the Lord chose to call you home. I would have cried but I know you wont want such more so, our loss sure is heaven's gain. Femi you will be missed my darling friend and sister."
"You were such an inspiration, with so much zeal and passion. Rest in the bossom of the Lord Femi."
"Dear Adefemi, you were a true friend, a woman after God's heart, vibrant and passionate. Honest and of good character, integrity was your watch word and pleasing the Lord in all things was uppermost in your mind. You impacted many lives, mine included. Your faith, zeal and passion for the Lord even with life's challenges was so admirable.
I recall the chat I sent to you via WhatsApp on the 10th of Feb 2016, asking you how you are, that you have been in my thoughts and prayers for the past 2 weeks. That I hope all is well with you, love you and God bless......your response was "please keep the prayers coming. Thanks Xxx.” And I responded 'It is well with you my friend, the Great Physician will perfect your health and all that concerns you in Jesus Name " I never realized this will be our last conversation on earth as the Lord will take you to His eternal rest on the 17th of Feb 2016.
My darling friend and sister in Christ, you fought a good fight of faith, you have completed your race. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
My thoughts and prayers are with your mum, siblings and family, pray that the Great Comforter will give them the fortitude to bear your loss.

"ADEFEMI ,my darling aburo I am missing you already! There was no Face time this week! . You were such an inspiration to us all spiritually. You took all of life's challenges with Grace & Dignity with complete faith in Almighty God. Often times you told me"Auntie Adun, e ma worry Jesu Loba!". You were a true servant of God, ever so caring, always wanting to know that everybody was fine. I shall miss our tea meetings at Selfriges with your friend Biola Shasanya any time I am around. You were such a good cook! . ADEFEMI ,baby Anti mi, Ifanu Adebajo,aburo mi owon ,Sunre,! Odaro, Odigbose. You have joined the Saints Triumphant! Alleluia ."
"Femfem my beautiful inside and out selfless friend! 30 years of true friendship all filled with lovely memorable moments, not a single sour moment!. I remember riding back with us from the reception on my wedding day in 1994!
Anyone coming from England to the East Coast that knows you gives mea call on your behalf! I will forever cherish your phone calls and heart felt prayers, most especially the last on January 19th.
Sweetheart I will forever love and miss you. What gives me peace is that I know you're in heaven. You are now my Guardian Angel!"
"May the Lord whom you loved receive you into His bosom and console those you left behind. Sleep on till the Resurrection morning."
"My friend, my co-labourer in the vineyard, you had a great loving heart. Your love and pasdion for Christ was without guile. You cared for all and cherished everyone. You were such a gem.
I recall your passion for African folklore. You pressured me to recall more & more stories for you to put together the book you authored on Ijapa the cunning one & you did mention my contribution in the the acknowledgement of book.
My trips to the UK was never complete without seeing you. What will my subsequent trips look like now, oh Adefemi!
Love you, miss you.
Rest on dearly beloved.
We shall meet again."
"Sister Femi, the news of your translation to glory at your prime is so saddening. May your gentle soul find rest in your Maker. May God of comfort heal the pains and wounds in the hearts of your family members in Jesus name. RIP Femi."
You deserve to sleep well.
You fought long and you fought hard yet not once did you waiver in your faith and love for God and those around you.
Sleep well precious one.
I did so enjoy the way you used to fuss over and mother me in school.
Indeed heaven has reclaimed an angel"
May your gentle soul rest in peace"
"Femi,your good memory lives on,you love,you care and have affections for people. You lived as a lighted candle that light others in inspiration and ignited passion for Jesus in all your entire life on earth. Crown of victory and glory awaits you at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ,adieu. Rest in peace."
"Femi, words cannot express how I feel. I pray for comfort and strength for your loved ones left behind. We will miss you - your beautiful smile, and your gentle ways however God loves you more. Rest in peace!"
"Femi, I'm in shock to hear that you're gone so soon. I was looking forward to seeing you in March! In every single way imaginable you were a wonderful sister and friend to every one you came across. It is so painful to hear about your passing, it is painful Femi! Rest in peace my sister till we meet again. May God give the family the strength to accept this tragedy. Rest in peace."
"Femi, the truth is that I am in shock. I am very sad. Yes, I know you are with the lord but I am still so sad! You planned to visit next month and I was so looking forward to it after so long ... You are all that has been written about you, kind , generous positive, strong and uplifting! You called and never complained even when I haven't called back, you still cared enough to call again.. . A true friend . A true sister . A true Christian . I will miss you. I pray that God will grant your mom and brothers and sister the strength to bear this. I know you are in a better place and that God loves you more. Rest now, my dear friend and sister. In the bosom of our lord Jesus Christ."
"Femi, you were a woman of faith who loved, served and trusted God throughout your days in the land of the living. You will sadly be missed. I know you are at the bosom of Our Lord Jesus Christ among the chosen saints. Rest in peace dear Sis."
"May your gentle soul Rest in Peace with your maker. Amen"
A gallant nd brave soldier has taken a bow out of the earth. Femi, death didn't defeat u. If that were d case, u shld've been gone long, long time ago. Several times death came calling but u cheated death. When I heard that u were hospitalized, I said to myself, "Femi has been thru worse attacks than dis b4; she definitely will pull thru dis one." But that was not to be. You didn't pull thru, not bc death overpowered u, but bc u decided u were better off being absent from us here on earth nd present wt ur Lord. Sleep on Femi. Enjoy d rest u so deserved. You ve "gallantly" fought a good fight of faith, u ve finished ur race, u kept d faith. There is NOW laid up for u a crown of righteousness. May d comfort of d Spirit drown d pain of your exit on ur dear nd precious mum and loving siblings. May God's comfort also be with our dear Pastor, spiritual father and mentor, Tunde Bakare, his lovely wife and our numerous brothers and sisters in d Latter Rain Apostolic community. We loved to ve u stay but u just ve to go. Adieu dear sister."
"Very saddened to hear this, still in shock, I just saw my aunt this Christmas, i'm glad she got to see my newborn. RIP Aunty Femi. May your beautiful soul rest with the lord. Gone but never forgotten. Xxx"
"Heaven has gained an angel and we will remember you with love always in our hearts. Rest in God's care Femi, rest in peace Amen."
What an inspiration you were through your life!! In health and sickness you marched on with the ultimate goal in mind - to be ready for that prized welcoming embrace when the end comes.
You were ready and I'm sure you were embraced!! Till we all meet xxx"
"Aderemi, ever smiling, speaking softly, gentle warrior and most of all, woman of faith. She rests......."
"Femi, you fought a good fight and finally the battle is over; victory is yours in Christ whom you loved so very much throughout your life on this side of the fence.
Sleep on Femi and rest with the lord........"
"Dearest Adefemi Thank you for always being such an inspiration...."
"Dear Adefemi Adebajo,
This is really really heart wrenching....
You loved God so much, so very much......
You stood in faith till life was gone......
Goodnight dearest aburo.....

And dearest Femi.......you kept your light in your window....that you did......."
"Femi, you fought a great fight, but we thank God for the legacy you left behind, you will surely be missed. Rest in the bosom of the Lord"
"Some people pass through this world and in their time add true value to the world around them. Aunty Femi was one of such rare people. In the few times we met I saw a true Christian and an absolutely pleasant soul. You will be missed. R.I.P"
"Fem Fem... As I write this I can't stop the tears... Memories of times gone.. Your laughter, your kindness and your Generousity. Through your pain ...You always listened and counselled others.

"Fem Fem...What a beautiful soul.....Thank you for entrusting your big projects with me, thank you for being that baby sister I never had but had through you...Thank you for always calling just to check up on me when I should be the one checking up on you...Thank you for all our long conversations about God, nothing and everything....
I miss you already, but I know without a doubt where you are now, resting with God... Sun re o aburo mi atata...Forgive me this once, though you said we should not cry, I am crying right now cause it hurts so much ...Love you dearly!!"
"My dear you are shining light you loved the Lord with all your heart. All the times I met you, you where always smiling I loved your spirit .
Rest in peace in the bosom of God our father.xxxx"
"Adefemi, my dearest sister. You came, you saw, you conquered and now you have left us. A true woman of faith,despite all that you endured through the tears.You never stayed idle , there was always a project you were pursuing .
I remember our phone conversations (even when I do not call you will always call),never a negative confession from your mouth,always positively confessing the Word regardless of how you felt - " Jesu l'Oba", Owo Jesu ni mo wa".
Our loss is Heaven's gain but we are comforted by your many words . Not one to miss an opportunity to declare the Word of Truth. We will all miss you and the children too, Timo your "Bobo " cried when he heard the news. Your memory and legacy will forever live on in our hearts.
Sun Re, " Ayanfe Eledumare, Eni Olorun da"."
"My dear Femi, hurts that I am doing this and why, but I somehow find a smile when I think of what you mean to me, how having you as a sister has made me a better person. For you will gently disagree with me, making your point clear, but with such a softness that only prompts a smile. You were such a beautiful soul and did not want anyone feeling sorry for you, I will miss you, but I am comforted knowing without a doubt that you are with our HEAVENLY FATHER, you masked every type of pain in faith, rest on now my dear sister, rest on. I thank GOD that we crossed paths, you were 5 years old when we became a family, wow! I pray the LORD will grant aunty, Tilewa, Kemi and Keye, the fortitude to bear this...XO- Kehinde Dacosta-Lawrence"
"Sade your cousin spoke so highly of you: your faith, your envangelism, love for God and ministry for Him. It is inspiring, God bless you as you now join the heavenly choir & great cloud of witness.
