"• Today mark 6 yrs since we lost our beloved mother Mrs Florence A. Davies-Though it's normal to be depressed, remember that she always loved us and wouldn't want this event to cripple our life forever. As we work through the loss, try to get back into doing the things we enjoyed before. Of course, this is easier said than done, but it doesn't mean that we should forget about the fact that our mother was happiest when we were happiest. This doesn't mean we have to sweep all of your negative feelings under the rug, but it does mean that we should make an effort to keep enjoying the little things as much as we can. Of course, if we feel completely devastated by the loss and unable to get back into the swing of things right away, don't let the memory of  MAMA make you feel guilty about not getting back on your feet.    Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.  Revelation 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”"

"Gone but definitely not forgotten. Memories of you always linger in my mind when I reflect on my teenage years at New England Ville where I moved with my parents on December 20, 1964. Shortly after your daughter, Ola and I started a teenage relationship that has lasted half a century, Your role in nurturing us as a mom and "diplomat" contributed in no small way in keeping us together as friends and as husband and wife, and parents. When I lost my mother in 1966, you called me in your room and made this consoling statement to me: "You mama don die. From now on me nar you mama ya." That was comforting to a teenager trying to complete secondary school under not-so-conducive/enriching circumstances including the loss of a very caring and loving mother, Mama Yeanoh. I never forgot that gesture and promise you kept till your passing. I hope you and Mama Yeanoh have continue your friendship in God's kingdom where there is no more death and no more pains and sorrow. May God continue to keep you in perfect peace. Also importantly, may God keep your children in unity and harmony with genuine LOVE for each other. This is what you always wanted for them and which you advocated for and demonstrated in their upbringing.

From your son-in-law and son,

Allyson Alimamy Sesay"

"Gone but definitely not forgotten! Memories of you always linger in my mind when I reflect on my teenage years at New England Ville where I moved with my parents from Edward Street on December 20, 1964. My relationship  with your daughter, Ola started shortly after and the role you played as a mom and "diplomat" contributed in no small way to nurture us till the time of your passing. At the death of my mom in 1966, you called me into your room and made this consoling statement to me "You mama don go but from now me nar you mama," That was very comforting to a teenage boy who had lost a very caring and loving mother. May God continue to grant you peace and eternal rest. Also importantly, may your prayers for your children keep ALL of them in unity and love as you always advocated and demonstrated in raising them.

Your son-in-law and son,

"Happy Birthday Mama Davies, I remember today being your birthday and I used to call and hear your sweet voice.

What I admired her for is that:-

She was a woman who made friends with everyone she’d meet and who liked people far more than what made sense.

She was a woman who, despite living in a culture where women often fade into the background and are told to be subservient to their fathers and husbands, taught her sons to respect women and treat them as equals. But she didn’t just say it. She walked the walk and demanded respect from everyone she met and worked with.

She was a woman who wanted the best for her children, even if it meant they would live far away.

She was a woman who you would aspire to be, if you didn’t already know you could never attain that level of goodness without a divine intervention.

She was and is my mother-in-law, the amazing woman who gave me a husband far better than anyone deserves.

You know, it’s sort of a sitcom joke that every wife gets annoyed by her mother-in-law. But what I wouldn’t give to have hugged mine just one time.
Nothing I could write could describe the type of person my mother-in-law was, but if I could be a tenth of the woman she was, I would be a fantastic wife, friend and daughter,  I hope I can live up to that and live a life she would be proud of.

Rest in peace, and thank you for everything you’ve done. You truly left the world better than you found it."

"Happy Birthday MOM. I think how I used to call and wish you a happy

birthday on this day.

Each section loaded with memories, times of happiness and tears,

Triumphs and thrashings, through every passing year.

She adored us unequivocally, dependably by our side,

At the point when nobody else would tune in, in her we could trust.

With delicate useful tidbits she headed us on our way,

Down the ways of nobility if at any point we did stray.

She saw the light in everybody and gave with no second thoughts,

Continuously from her heart how about we not overlook.

Blessed messengers come in numerous structures, for me it is my mother,

With adoration I can't say in words there'll never be an alternate.

Consistently I turn the page in my heart will ever remain,

All that she taught me as I walk around memory path.

Much obliged to you God for providing for me the most inestimable of all fortunes,

Help my Lord to keep alive her memory here until the end of time.

I ask that I can sometime be all that she trusted I would,

That is she grinning down from paradise knowing she did great.

As we assemble here today there's no completion of her story,

An alternate part has started loaded with effortlessness and grandness.

God's called her to his sublime home, some piece of his extraordinary arrangement,

Despite the fact that it might be hard, we all must get it.

Confidence is what is trusted for, things we can't see,

Paradise is guaranteed to every one of us if we accept.

I will always love you "MAMA""

"Good bye Mama Davies
'When there is no more' is about the end - what it represents in different situations and its effect on those who experience it. Everyone hopes to avoid the inevitable outcome, or hopes that the chances of it happening are not 'allowed' to take precedence over other more 'tangible' experiences. As such, many go to vast extremes to 'soften' the event... that time when our mortality will be tested and found to be wanting.
Life, as we perceive to 'know' it, is said to be for living and yet in many respects, in death we are often perceived by others to have a greater opportunity to live! Perhaps, immortality can exist when it is perceived to be, a 'fitting' tribute to someone whom I loved, as opposed to what we often choose to perceive as being a 'fitting' tribute to a stranger! Perhaps, we need to ask our compassionate selves, what really does that detachment mechanism say about 'us' in regards to character, the whole picture, or nature of events? Mama  Davies was just a wonderful woman
'When There is No More,' is about letting go of those different earthly things and people that we have held dear in our lives... Mama Davies has been surely missed. She was a virtuous woman who cared very much about her family and people around her. May her dear soul rest in Perfect Peace and may life Perceptual shine upon her .
Love ,

"A tribute to my Wonderful Mother
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.  Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.  She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Proverbs 31:10, 25-28

M" is for the million things she gave me, "O" means only that she's growing old, "T" is for the tears she shed to save me, "H" is for her heart of purest gold; "E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining, "R" means right, and right she'll always be, Put them all together, they spell  "MOTHER", A word that means the world to me.  

On a more personal note, I was BLESSED to have had a wonderful mother, Mother FLORENCE ADEKULE DAVIES.  She was a graceful woman.  She was truly a mother to me!  She was always easy to talk to.  She bought us up fearing God and knowing his power, teaching that he could do anything but fail.  She was a woman of God that was a nurturer to her children.  When I think of the many words that I could use to describe her, one word that comes to mind is “COACH”.  She ALWAYS gave me that PUSH I needed in my life.  When I was a child she encouraged me to always do what was right. We had to go to church, IT WAS NOT AN OPTION!!!  It was a way of life in our household.  
When I’m talking about her to my friends I refer to her as a “coach” because throughout my life she always encourages me to shoot for the sky, My mother use to take her Money and paid for international exams without no knowing. My Coming to America was a blessing because she planned it with my older brother and sister without no one knowing. Even in America the personal things she did for me I can’t explained it all.  Her faith that she had in God and in the ability that she sees in me to operate as more than a conqueror allowed me to run this race victoriously.  

Thank you God for giving me the mother that was assigned to me, a virtuous woman who touched my life in so many ways and the lives of others.
Love your son
