Your faith in Christ is the great legacy you gave us.  We love you still.  Your memory brings joy and encouragement. The Bible says, "The memory of the righteous will be a blessing,.Proverbs 10:7  Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord and Savior until the day of great resurrection when we shall meet at feet of Jesus Christ."

"Beloved,
It’s been three years since Maami left us to be with the Lord. She is greatly missed, but we rejoice for the gift of eternal life through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please be encouraged and keep up your faith and hope in His promise for his glorious appearance.
Thessalonians 4: 13-18
“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.”
Maami, Rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ
Akinwunmi & Omolara Abisogun, children and grandchildren"

"From: Grace Adebisi Fayombo

Death be not proud, because you could not hold Maami down. Unfortunately, you could not kill all that she has done to make life for her loved ones a happier and more fulfilling one. You could not kill all her devotion and wonderful ways. Thus, the person that you thought you killed and overthrew did not die! You should be ashamed  of yourself because you have failed! O death, where is thy victory? O grave, where is thy sting? (1 Corinthians 15:55).
Hallelujah we have won the victory!"

"From: Grace Adebisi Fayombo
Growing up under the care of a good mother is one of life’s great blessings. Maami, since you passed on to a place better than ours few weeks ago, you've always been in our thoughts; we have always been guided by the moral codes you left behind and the fear of God  that you instilled in us. Maami, we will forever miss you, rest in perfect peace until that day when we 'll meet to part no more. Maami, o daro, good night."

We pray you would feel the comfort you need from the Lord especially when you seem to have no answers to all your questions,
Know that God is in control and there by your side

I remember the song "OMO KOOLU BAMBA" you put in the tune and I would start dancing. It took me a long time to know the difference between you and my mother, you both looked like twins then. It is most impossible to take one's leave with your Old School stories and experiences. Thank you for your labour of love over all of us.

"Maami,
I want to thank  you for all you've done for our Family and most of all, my mother. You were a constant in her life. You were a role model, a teacher, a disciplinarian, but most of all you were a loving and virtuous mother. I thank you for passing those traits on to my own mother. I thank you for always being there to help our family in our times of need. I thank you for helping to care for my only brother, Akinwunmi Jr. in his infancy, when my father was in his residency and my mother was in school. I thank you for being hard on us and setting high expectations for us. When we were younger we thought you were harsh. As we've matured I see that you were driven by your love for all of us and your desire for us all to reach our potential. It was an honor being with you during your last days. It was a blessing to be able to care for you in your time of need. I'm grateful you were able to meet my wife, Abby, and that she was able to see how blessed we were to have you. You will always be in my prayers. I love you. You are now with the LORD.
GOD bless you."

"Honor is not about a perfect childhood. Honor is about a mother who loves her children and fears the Lord. She had no pulpit, yet her life was an epistle that can be read.  She taught us hard-work, integrity and unshaken faith in Christ.  She lived a life pleasing to the Lord never adding anything to the name of Jesus.   She worked long hours as a nurse.  She sacrificed greatly."

"As I prayed about what to write, there are so many things that I REMEMBER ABOUT MAMI. For 88 years, God has been intricately and lovingly weaving the tapestry of her life long journey, into beautiful
colors for eternity. The most important legacy a Mother gives her Daughter is the way she lives her own life with her own special walk with the Lord."

"From: Grace Adebisi Fayombo
Maami, you’re a mother in a million.  You singlehandedly raised 4 girls FUMILAYO, LANREWAJU, OMOLARA and ADEBISI; transcended all challenges because God’s your refuge. You’re very hard-working, upright, loving and a disciplinarian committed to your children’s achievement even when faced with adversity and cruelty. Maami, continue to rest in God’s bosom till we meet to part no more"

"Ode to My Sister
The lives of mortals fade away,
Only to be remembered by what we’ve done.
Even when the road was dreary,
She never missed the providential way;
She toiled, labored and was fulfilled;
She sowed the seed and reaped bountifully.
Principled and independent- minded;
No waivering, no looking back;
Yet, compassionate, caring to a fault.
What a Titan. Goodnight Omo elerin
Halleluyah!"

"Mammie showed me something small and pink. "Olupemi! This is a chewing gum,"  I blink and nod. " Chew it. Do not swallow."  I chewed my first gum. I loved it. I swallowed. I stretched out my hand for another. My cheeks stung before I saw her hand move. She gave me another "DO NOT SWALLOW" but laughter danced in her eyes. I was 5. My first of many memories with my firm, loving Mammie."

"From: Grace Adebisi Fayombo
Maami’s Journey’s Just Begun
Don't think of her as gone away
her journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one. . .
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away
and think of her as living"

"From: Grace Adebisi Fayombo
Maami,
God saw you were getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come To Me."
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best."
