|Let the memory of Kemi be with us forever|
"Today I sing a song in your memory - I remember you as a beautiful soul
1. Fading away like the stars of the morning,
Losing their light in the glorious sun --------
Thus would we pass from the earth and its toiling,
Only remembered by what we have done.
Only remembered, only remembered,
Only remembered by what we have done;
Thus would we pass from the earth and its toiling,
Only remembered by what we have done.
2. Shall we be missed, though by others succeeded,
Reaping the fields we in springtime have sown?
Yes; but the sowers must pass from their labours,
Ever remembered by what they have done.
3. Only the truth that in life we have spoken,
Only the seed that on earth we have sown;
These shall pass onward when we are forgotten,
Fruits of the harvest and what we have done.
4. Oh, when the Saviour shall make up HIS jewels,
When the bright crowns of rejoicing are won,
Then shall HIS weary and faithful disciples
All be remembered by what they have done."
"A year older today. Forever in my heart, forever loved, forever missed.
Sleep on beloved sister, friend and confidant."
"Sis K, you would have been a year older today. You remain forever in our hearts."
4 long years of only memories
I'm laying a flower by your soul
With a prayer filled hope and a sigh
That like your memory on this side
Your soul continues to bloom
On the other side....
May memories of you
Continue to bring some comfort
To all that loved you."
"To say how much you're missed is another indescribable experience. Somehow your smile lingers and then I am grateful for our paths crossing at St.Anne's School, Ibadan . . . sweet memories of you help to go on trusting and believing in God's Awesome Plan for our individual lives! You will remain unforgettable& forever in my thoughts. May God Keep your lovely children safe always and sustain your family. Till we meet, rest on my dear friend."
"Forever in my heart with each passing day filled with memories of times of laughter and fun. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. May you continue to rest in the perfect peace of our Lord Jesus Christ our savior whom you served till with meet again to part no more.Amen"
"It's 4 years today Kemi since you left us. Miss you girl, today as always."
"Going on four years like yesterday.
Still missing you everyday...and its such a mystery
I know you're in a better place peacefully with your creator.
I'm grateful for having had you as a sister and give thanks to the Lord for having learnt so much about love, peace and care from you.
Looking back to those times, hmmph I took it for granted but now,,,, I'm learning to live it as you always advised.
I believe, I am better off for it by His grace and guidance."
"Remembering you today as always
My darling sister...
Love you more each day"
"One your Birthday
Here's a flower"
"My dearest Kemi,
Thanking God for having you as a sister.
Thinking of you.. fond memories... the good times... the naughty times..
The pranks... the jokes... jeering...sharing...caring...loving...
Thanking God for sisters such as you.
Sun re ooooo.... my loving caring sister"
"Sis K, your death 3 years ago left me speechless. I found it difficult to believe you were gone because I spoke to you the previous day .You were a unique and wonderful person, full of life and love. l thank God because I know you are with our Lord Jesus Christ. Though you are gone you live on in our hearts."
I still can not believe you are gone, it's like a bad dream. I miss you everyday. But I know you are in a better place. Having so much fun in His presence. I will always love you and you will never be forgotten. You are a gem, rare breed, a gift from Him to me. Rest dear till I see you.
Loving you always
"It's just 3 years but it seems like forever. I miss you girl. Still hurts a lot but you're with the one you loved and served.
You'll never be forgotten.
Sleep well beloved."
"Where ever it is your spirit is....
Hope it's peaceful, free of cares
Resting after its earthly tolls
Remembered by all who love you
Living forever in all their hearts"
"2012 seems like yesterday !
Your life was exemplary and an example to a lot around you. You left too early in our eyes, but God knows best. Your smile was always sincere and heartfelt.
Miss you loads but comfort in the knowledge that you are at peace.
Sleep on till we meet again at his feet."
"In all things God said we should give thanks.I thank God for the opportunity he gave me to know you. I am also comforted with the fact that we shall meet again at the feet of Jesus where there is no more pain or sorrow.As I water the tree we planted in your memory at work,I am reminded that your memory will remain fresh in my mind.Continue to rest on in peace.We miss you but God loves you more."
"St Anne's Song: St Anne's St Anne's may none of us here fall behind, Proud of our name, may we add to its fame, by true service to God and mankind. You played your part and is now at rest. Trusting the Almighty God is encamping round about your family on this side while you rest in His bosom. It is well.- Tribute from Sola Ogunnaike (nee Otolorin)-Fellow Anzea Girl"
"Met you in California. Heard of your passing and never knew you were Bunmi's younger sister. Hope and pray that memories of you have filtered into a place were your family and friends can think of you and smile instead of cry.....a place where memories of you make their hearts lighter not heavier...... A place where memories of you are reflected in the legacy you left behind. Rest on Kemi. To live in the hearts of those who love you.....though your life here, ended.... is not to die all."
"Remembering you positively - assurance that it was GOODNIGHT and not goodbye. By GOD's grace will definitely see you again on the resurrection morning at HIS feet to part no more. In the meantime continue to rest in peace."
"Forever on my mind
My loving and caring sister"
"Yes I remember you as always, spent the night dreaming of you. I could not bear to wear the T shirt nor even look at it today in school. God knows best.Every day I walk by the plaque I cannot help but look at your face.The tree in your memory at school is growing well ,I make sure I water it two times a week at least. The vacuum is so great. Miss u so much.Till we meet at the feet of Jesus.amen"
"Kemsie, you would have been 54 today. I miss you daily. It's still like a bad dream, I can't believe you are gone. I will always cherish the memories. I know you are with the Lord, for to be absent from the body is to be with the Lord. I LOST A GEM!
Love you always
"Olukemi, you would have been 54 today. We will never forget you for your special ways. It is well, may we all hasten to know Kemi's lord, live in him and die in him. The end is near, dear friends, all the Anzee opportunities, Mrs. Durodola's bible studies, SCM fellowship, Nifes retreats and other avenues God used to call us, may they not be in vain in any of our lives. the lord cometh. Love y'all"
"Though we miss you dear friend, we are consoled knowing you are in a much better place.
Though I wish again for your lovely smile, your jokes and counsel, I am trusting God still.
Though your family and friends wish you were here to be part of their present existence, they will survive still cause God is with them.
Keep on Resting, Kemi. With other angels like you. . .
Rest peacefully, Rest on, Rest in The Lord . . . Till we meet again."
"Kemi, continue to rest iin God's hands."
"Two years already. I treasure memories from Anzee, St Faith house, shared good times of faith and character building and the brief time we had together at Magodo in Lagos. We'll meet at the wedding feast of the lamb where the dead in Christ shall rise first and we shall ever be with our lord. Hallelujah for a glorious hope through the cross of Christ."
"We love you but God loves you more.Continue to sleep in the bosom of our Lord till we meet to part no more .amen."
"Kemi, it's just 2 years but it seems like forever. Sleep well dear friend. Love always."
"Two years since you left us , Kemi . The Lord knows best .
It's still hard to believe. See you on the other side at his feet .
Continue to rest in peace, Amen."
"My dear friend, I woke up today with thoughts of you. I wanted to talk like we used to, wanted to share with you. . . I miss your wisdom and unique perception to knotty issues. I miss your jokes and laughter and the great sense of humor. But I will still thank God Almighty for the opportunity of knowing you and the time you spent here with us. You are surely in a better place and I pray that God's Perpetual Light will shine on you. Sleep on Kemi. . . You are sorely missed."
"kemi, it is unbelievable. We lost contact after St. Anne's but met again in Magodo when you came to set up your practice. Apparently we both traveled shortly after and never connected again. It was a shock to hear it the way, I did. I wish we had been able to stay connected more but life happens. I am just glad that you know the lord and now behold him face to face. May God continue to comfort all you left behind"
"Today would have been your birthday,I am so lonely at work and I continue to miss your presence there.The joy I have is that you are having everlasting joy with the prince of peace and The Lord of Lords.Continue to rest on.................amen."
"Kemi hadn't seen nor talked to you since A levels in Odogbolu,but was shocked at the news. May The Lord continue to look after your family IJN. Great to know you not only knew The Lord,but worked for him as well by bringing others to Him.. No wonder He gave you such a peaceful passage. Continue to rest in His bossom."
"It was just like yesterday you left us. But alas it is one year already. The comfort I have is that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.Forever in our hearts your memory will remain. Continue to rest in the bossom of Jesus till we meet to part no more.Amen
"Dear kemi, may faithful helpers continue to lead you to the realm of peace, sleep on beloved............"
"Sisi Kemi you're greatly missed. Continue to rest in the bosom of your maker."
"It is a year on, seems like yesterday. Continue to rest in peace. You will always be missed, but we believe that all is well in Jesus name.
Our thoughts with Femi and the children, and the rest of the family."
"Kemi, may your soul continue to rest in perfect peace. I remember telling your sister when we met in Canada last Summer that I knew you in St Anne's. only for me to loose my sister (who also went to St Anne's) on the 7th of September and then losing you shortly afterwards. May those you left behind draw strength from Christ."
"One year already? Didun ni iranti olododo. Your memory remains fresh. We will keep hope alive knowing we will surely meet again. May The Lord sustain your husband and children as well as every member of your family. Amen
Kemi darling, Rest on . . . I will never forget your sweetness and your exceptional sense of humor . I often recall your hearty laughter also. Sleep well dear friend."
"I take solace in Daniel 12 verse 3 which says "Those who are wise shall shine, Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness, Like the stars forever and ever". Your testimony stands so I believe you shine like the stars forever and ever. You are daily missed. Shine on Kemi."
"Bunmi sounds soooo much like you! She said other people have said as much. She encouraged me with what Femi encouraged her with...that you brought him and other membes of his family to Christ. It's just as if you sneaked out from all of us. But I guess your job here was done and it was time for you to go home."
"It's been 1 year. You seem to be away on a journey, not really gone forever. Sometimes talking with Femi leads to tears for both of us. It's not planned but the tears just come. I can't explain why or when it'll stop."
"Dear Aunty Kemi,
Today would have been your 52nd bday.You will be forever missed in the lives of those of us you touched.Indeed to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.May your gentle soul continue to rest in perfect peace until we meet to part no more.Amen"
"I am just coming to terms with the reality of your sudden departure and reassure myself that this is not goodbye yet.We will surely meet again.
May God Almighty grant you sweet repose and give all your beloved family members and friends the grace to bear the pain. Amen. Your memories will sustain me. Sleep well Kemi dearest, you will remain in our hearts forever."
"Dear Sis Kemi, we love you but the Lord loves you more, you are sorely missed by all who knew you. I thank God almighty for a wonderful life, a life well spent! and pray that the God of all comfort will comfort all left to mourn your passing to glory. Continue to rest in his bosom until such a time when we'll all meet again."
"kemi ,a, sister friend and confidant. Not unto us, not unto us , but unto the name of the Lord we give glory for thy mercy for the life of Kemi Owolabi . She has fought a good fight and won the race . psalm119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness , strengthen thou me according unto thy word . Sun re o.. довиждане"
"We shall indeed understand it better by and by when the morning comes.You indeed will have many crowns for the many lives you touched by your acts of kindness.Good bye till we meet on that beautiful shore.there will be no more crying or mourning there.but everlasting joy.Sleep well Aunty Kemi."
"Aunty Kemi,so this dream is becoming a reality.many things we do not understand but by and by we will understand it better.i still go to work everyday and just hope I will still see you.thank you for the selfless ,dedicated and caring way you cared for the students. Your labor of love will now be rewarded.Rest in d everlasting arms"
"Kemi dear, I kept saying to myself that I have not talked to Kemi for a while and kept procastinating on giving you a call, not knowing that I will never get to speak to you again. It is however consoling that you left peacefully to rest in the Lord. Rest in peace my gentle friend and enjoy the Lord."
"Kemi, Dear Kem-che, you came and you left. Like a shooting star, brief, but with a lot of impact. You touched our lives right from our days at school in Sofia. Martin & I will always remember you. You have not Iived in vain, for you have left two lovely kIds to carry on the torch. Rest in the bossom of the Lord...Amen."
"God looked around His garden and found and empty space. Then He looked down upon the earth and saw your lovely face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful. He always takes the best. You will be truly missed, but we'll meet again on the other shore. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers."
"Oh... Kemi was so special! I pray God to comfort her family and we her friends. She lived well, she made her mark. She was an inspiration to me. Kemi, rest in the Lord. we shall all meet on that day"
"May we not hear sad news like this again. I pray God to comfort Kemi's family and friends. She was trully special."
"Life is short live it well to God's glory and that you sure did. Met with you Aug 2011 after so many years with your children and am glad i did. Those children are truly the leaders of tomorrow, God helped you to do a good job. Chatted with you Aug 02, 2012 and you had to go to UK so we could not meet. We will surely meet in a better place. The comfort of GOD is on your family. It's well"
Can't believe your gone, my friend Kemi, you will always have a special place in my heart. You've taught me alot about friendship. I am thankful for our time together. Love You and will miss you always.
Will have to master that beef recipe! Your family will always be in my prayers. Monika & Marlin"
"I am in shock! You were on my mind last week as I chatted with Odogbolu alumni, and now my friend is gone. May God's peace and comfort sustain the Adeniji and Owolabi families. You are in our prayers. Sola Adegoke Moniz"
"Lovely Kemi, you will surely be missed,
Sweet Kemi, rest, rest..........
Yes, we'll gather at the river, the beautiful, beautiful river..
We'll gather with the Saints at the river that flows by the throne of God."
"Kemi ,what can i say that would bring u back?u were such a lovin and caring friend,with a good sense ☺Ƒ humour,we enjoyed our time in the same house in st faith, in st annes school ibadan, u would tease M̶̲̅ε̲̣ and make M̶̲̅ε̲̣ laugh,u were S̶̲̥̅Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ brilliant,we lost touch,but d moment i got our class list i contacted u just this july i am grateful for that ,sleep well kemi"
"A BEAUTIFUL SOUL..........
Kemi we love you and miss you but God loves you more, so what can we do? We were classmates/housemates by chance in St. Faith's House in St. Anne's School, but friends by choice. Rest in peace Kemi, "God be with you till we meet again.......""
"Shocked at the news but consoled that you knew Christ and assured that a crown awaits you for the suceess you achieved with your children. I met them August 2011 and couldn't believe such well-mannered children can exist in the society they live. Your reward is the stars shinning on your crown as you rest in glory."
"Kemi, I believe you are resting in the bosom of our Lord. Anzea gals will surely miss you. May the Almighty Lord comfort your husband, children, siblings and mum. Rest in perfect peace."
"Kemi, you are gone too soon. I'll miss you my sister and my friend. Sun re oo."
"Goodbye my friend:
Dearest Kemi, I am so sad that I never got the opportunity to see you after we left Federal Government College Odogbolu. You were such a sweet, intelligent girl and it's obvious from the tributes your winsome personality never faded. What can I say? I am broken hearted. You were such a good friend and I remember you fondly."
"I just got a call now and I am devastated ! Kemi was a special soul and I will forever cherish your memories from Odogbolu. There is so much I wish I could say and so many questions to ask but the Lord knows best ! Rest in perfect peace, beautiful soul and May God in his infinite Mercy console your husband and children especially ! You will be sorely missed ! Sleep well, Kemi. Amen."
"May the Lord accept your soul. Everyone has a time when to answer the call. Yours came when no one expected. Those of us still here will learn from you and try to be prepared while we sojourn on earth. Rest perfectly in your eternal freedom."
"I still cannot believe that you are gone,I know one thing that you will be greatly missed may your soul rest in peace till we meet to part no more.Adieu my dear sister Kemi .Bursch will never be the same again without you."
"It's so hard to accept that you have gone so soon, only God knows why it was your time to go. Knowing that you are now resting in His presence and with the strength that God gives, we must accept that it'll now be a while before we meet again. I will miss your wonderful smile, your sense of humor, and your good spirited ways but will always remember you with love."
"How do I start saw you briefly on Wednesday and said will see you next week never knew that will be my last time seeing you alive.may you rest at the feet of our Lord Jesus till we meet to part no more adieu my dear sister Kemi ."
"It is still a dream, and I need to wake up to reality that you just left us to be with the Lord. We will forever cherish your genuine smile. Our family gathering in Bellflower/Downey/Norwalk will never be the same again. Sun re oooo."
Have a suggestion for us?
