"All I remember is your smile. It was weird for me cos I wanted to hug you. At that point I had just lost my own mom and I must admit it made me jealous seeing how much you love Molade. Maybe you knew cos you will turn and smile at me...
I honestly don't know what to say. I have held off on this long. I can imagine how much Molade misses you. You were so amazing you rubbed off on your kids. I'm glad I met you. I won't forget your smile ever.
I love you Molade!"

She was so sweet and kind like an angel.
I remember one of the songs she used to sing at the fellowship where we both worked-National Archives,Lagos.
"Jesus at Your Name,I bow my knees.With your Spirit in my heart,I confess You are Lord"
She'll be greatly missed.
The consolation is that she was a believer."

"Sister, Adefolake Ogungbade (nee Rosanwo), a loving and caring person you were. You always wore a warm and welcoming smile, signs of your inner strength in the Lord. Usually, you were one of the first to send warm birthday greetings, Christmas card, or loving messages. When we were much younger you made time to share of yourself, and made some of the most delightful meals for the family like your scrumptious cupcakes and jollof rice, to mention a few. I mentioned meals because true personal meal preparation is an expression of care, love and giving quality of a person in most cultures like ours. You were a precious person who loved the Lord as shown by your participation and commitment to the choir at Yaba Baptist Church which prepared you for one of the key roles in Heaven. How glorious it is that you are now serenading the Lord with holy songs, praising and worshiping Him. While you will be missed, it is a comfort to note that you prepared well to know the Lord and to worship Him eternally. It is well, and God is Good. Rest well in His bosom sister. Amen."

"My precious sister,
My dearest friend,
A precious jewel,
A blessed heart,
You will be greatly missed, but never abandoned.
Every desire and dream for your children will be realized in Jesus name.
You loved the Lord,
You served with your heart,
God is faithful and He was your stay.
And since it’s best for you to be with Him now, what do we say?
All things are working together for your good.
My early childhood memories of you, was you as my ‘Guardian Angel’
And now I can be there for Demola, Molade, Junior and Bayo.
Adieu for now, till we meet again at His bosom.
Rest in His love.
Ore Odunsi (Sister)"

"I will miss that beautiful smile. Never complains, always smiling even when situations were tough. Remember my visit to her house in Nigeria when the kids were very young and how she made them her top priorities making sure they were okay and did their homework. She loved them so much and never let them out of her sight. She made me feel at home and her smile put me at ease. I watched her relationship with her kids and hoped that one day I will have that great relationship. What a cousin. Sleep on cousin in the bosom of our Lord. No more pain. Peace at last. Mobolaji Fatunla Hazzan."

"God looked down in HIS garden!
HE looked down upon the earth and saw Folake's tired face.
HE put HIS arms around Folake and lifted her to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful; HE always takes the best!

HE knew you were suffering.
HE knew you were in pain.
HE knew you will never get well on earth again!

God saw the road was getting rough.
And the hills were hard to climb.
So HE closed your wearing eyelids.
And whispered "Peace be thine"!

It broke our hearts to loose you.
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you.
When God called you home!

~We will forever love you ❤️

'Shola Rosanwo,"

Your mom was such an amazing and splendid mother and will be deeply missed.God gave you the best but He also broke our hearts to prove to us that He only takes the best.

Please continue to be who you are and better at what you do. let her continue to smile wherever she may be.
