|Let the memory of Babayeju be with us forever|
"Gone but not forgotten. To live in the hearts you left is not to die. Sleep tight sis"
"Too bad I won't be meeting you here on planet earth. Your son Dayo is an amazing friend. For every chat with him about you, I will continue create a mental picture of you till it is perfect. Rest in peace Ma. We love you but God loves you more."
"Dear Mom, We miss you so much. You made our house a home. Even though God answered our prays to end your suffering, we wish you were still here with us. I hope you're proud and we gave you enough care to feel how truly loved you are. Please let me know you're with us. Thank you Mom."
"To the mother of a great friend
I say rest well
To the mother of that great brother
I say rest well
You might have left too soon but you will forever be remembered!
Sleep well in the bosom of the Lord!"
A rear gem, mother of all, who served with equity.
A beloved mother, many believed you are gone but to us you are with us. Nothing could be forgotten about you, your legacy lives on, the caring mother. "Mother of boys" as fondly called. If death takes bribe, pretty sure uncountable would stand for negotiations.
The world is missing you. Am missing you mummy. RIP."
"If mortals still exist, I believe they would be mothers Coz during existence, they are the best but when they transit - thoughts of them brings them back; fresh & alive. @EkunDayo: Almighty will be your strength to pull through & be successful in life. "We share the pain of the Babayeju family""
"Sweet is the memory of the righteous so the bible says. I am a friend to Ekundayo and I know that this sudden incidence hit him so hard that I have never seen him in such a terrible condition. However, Christ is your fortress and he will uphold you and your family. Many may promise that you will never lack anything and fail you, it is only God that can promise you and never fails. So, please hold on to his promises and be rooted in his words for you and your family have conquered the world. Take care and God bless you all. Adieu mama rere"
"Too soon to be taken away from us. What a big loss to the family and friends. May God give your family the strength to bear this irreparable loss. I remember our days in the "Prime League" and those social functions we used to organise. You were ever cheerful, bubbly and easy going. Yetunde rest in peace.
From Femi & Tai Adesanya"
"Sleep tight my sister. Gone but never forgotten. Seems surreal. May your soul rest in peace.
Wow! Iku ma jebi oh! Keep checking my fb half expecting to see one of those ur msgs, starting iya oko mi this or that. The trip we discussed wasn't to be. How I wish I made that extra effort to get to Abuja to see you guys when I was in town. O ye Olorun.
Jehovah El Shaddai the all knowing all seeing God uphold and comfort ur men.
The Rose Beyond The Wall
A rose once grew where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
And as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall...
One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side
Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted - the rose blooms there-
its beauty even greater now, nurtured by
God's own loving care."
"Hello Aunty, I'm short of words to describe my state of sadness and disbelief when I heard that you'd passed on. You were such a lovely fellow and you were always there for us. Whenever I came to visit you in Alagomeji in those days food was already on the table even before I could seat down. When you were in passport office in Lagos, you were ever ready to help. Always taking me to the right people and introducing me as "baba oko me". When I was getting married in Benin, you came all the way from Abuja even though I tried to discourage you from coming to avoid road hazards but you made sure you came. It's really very painful that you left so soon...really, I don't know what to say anymore....It hurts.."
"Goodbye... No. You are a legacy and you will live on in our hearts, works and offsprings. From the moment I met you, I saw a warm hearted, loving, caring, welcoming, prayerful, honest and determined Mother who will protect a lost chick under the radar of the hawk.
Your prayers will continually protect us. We will remain determined as u would have wanted us to be.
We miss you."
"What the heart gives away is never gone, but kept in the hearts of others, from dusk to dawn. Love you from the core of our heart. You are one in a trillion. We miss you mum... Rest in perfect peace..... Chief Olu ola meleki"
"It's really painful for you to leave so soon. Words cannot describe how strong and courageous you were. I always smile when Dayo talks about you and it's so sad I never got to meet you. You are a rare gem and a loving mother, I call you Adadioramma. May your soul be calm and spirit sanctified. Rest well in the Lord's bosom Legendary Mom."
"Good men must die, but death cannot kill their names. It is very sad that you left us so soon, but all the same, your legacies will forever live. We will miss u dearly. See u on resurrection day! Rest Well!"
"I'm a few minutes or a few words, I cannot adequately Sum up Yetunde's life or salute her with d kind of tribute I would like to, and that she so richly deserves. Her passing happened so suddenly and ever since about 6:00pm Tuesday 3rd November 2015 at the National hospital Abuja ,My time has been filled with a blur and flurry of activity in doing the things necessary to bring us to dis memorial and celebration service.
It's gonna be hard to say goodbye,but all I can do is to thank the lord for a life well spent by an extraordinary wife, partner, best friend and Mother Mrs Yetunde Olabisi Babayeju. Till we meet again"
"Mom when I heard you were gone. I refused to believe it could be true How could I allow myself to even Imagine saying goodbye to you. Mom you were an Angel here on earth I learned so very much from you You were so gentle and so kind your Smile would always see me through. You taught me how to love unconditionally And how to be my very best in all I do.You gave your all to God and your family Never once stopping to think about youYou were more than a mother you were my Best friend and a great listener too.Oh how I miss our special talks, an All the fun things we used to do.Mom I can never say goodbye to you, Because I could never bear the pain.Instead I say I love you Mom Until we meet again to part no more..... My mum my best friend, My one in all the irreplaceable one I miss you"
"What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All what we deeply love becomes part of us. I lack words to express how much you meant to us all, but I am glad you gave us the best years of our lives. You were extremely extraordinary as the sister we never had, a friend and a mother.
While we are mourning the loss, others are rejoicing to meet you behind the veil.
There are no goodbyes for us, wherever you are, you will always be in our hearts and we will immortalise you in every way."
Have a suggestion for us?
