|Let the memory of Florence be with us forever|
"Funmi woke me up this morning to remind me of your birthday. Then I started checking where you are likely to be. Judging by my close contacts with you and how plain and truthful you were to all situation without being biased (while alive), a joy flew into my heart, knowing fully well that, you must have been with the Lord singing Halleluyah. I missed you so dearly, my children missed your gifts. We are still searching for someone who will enter into your shoes when I heard the Lord saying what a bout you? I asked for grace, He said His grace is sufficient and all I needed to do is to activate it. I cried loud! Help my unbelief Lord.
I remember whenever I asked you why do yo always go this far on family issue? You will simply replied: What report will I give to my fathers Pa David Awofisan Owoyomi and Pa Isiah Owoyomi, I am also promising you that I will attend to every family issue with such consciousness and with impression that you have expectation towards me when I shall meet you. Sleep on mummy till we meet face to face."
"Mummy, you died like eagle.Whenever eagle is to die, it die smiling, painless and assuredly. My discipler (Aso ni di omoleyin Jesu) once told me that his old father in his striking age sometimes will laugh in his lonely room. And when He (my discipler) asked him Baba while are you laughing alone, his father will say, I laugh because He who will judge the world happened to be his friend. Your last moment confirmed that Jesus was your friend and there had been transitional process before you finally passed on. I will do all to do to make it with you at the feet of Jesus. O daaro Ma."
"Dear Mummy, you were a true representation of Christ in truth and righteousness. you were such a bold, selfless and loving Christian. You were a pillar in the midst of us all yet you were never partial. You were like the Christ your master who walked and worked in the midst of 12 disciples and none of them could say you named him the greatest. Your love, prayer and advice will be missed by I and Funmi my dear Wife your Ruth. Nice Rest Mum"
"Loving mother, God's gift to us.
She speaks with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the affairs of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness....
Her children arise and call her blessed.....Many daughters do noble things but you surpass them all....Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. Prov 31: 26-31"
Have a suggestion for us?
