"My friend, I sometime just say your name in amazement that you  are actually no longer here, still seems so unreal, you were so full of energy, so full of life, always thinking big thoughts, dreaming big dreams, taking risks, and forever on the move, taking the bitter with the sweet and never letting anything bug you down, living your truth and walking your walk with God, your bible always at your side, very resourceful and entertaining, the perfect hostess. We miss you no be small.
Rest easy my friend."

"Seiyefa it is a year since you left to be with our Lord. Indeed your silence  has shown that you have left us. All through the year I did not get a call from you to tell me that I am an "Egbon" I never missed 30th March to say "your Egbon" was wishing you a happy birthday. We miss you."

This tribute was added by Alero Wilkie on 17th October 2016

"It's exactly a year since you left mama. I still close my eyes and pinch myself to wake up from this nightmare but I guess this is the curveball life has chosen to throw at me. Sometimes I wonder how I've survived this long without you, seeing as you are my everything. But then I remember that one of the numerous things you stood for was strength and so I have to be strong. Sometimes I fail woefully but I get back up because it is what you'd expect. I love you and appreciate your support and sacrifices over the years. You were too selfless mum and I strive to become who you were and if I ever get there, I know that I have fulfilled my purpose. I love you more than words can say. Your baby girls are alright and I know that you're happy seeing how we constantly look out for each other. I know we'll be alright because you're our mum, our superwoman, our guardian angel and your values were the greatest inheritance you could ever leave to us. Today, I choose to celebrate the life you lived because I can very well say that you lived a purpose filled life and you made heaven. I'm a 101% sure of that and so I thank the Lord for a life well lived. I miss you so much and I'll love you till the day I take my last breath. My heart will always beat for you and I know for a fact that Sisi and I will make you proud. Rest in peace mama ❤️"

"My mum went to heaven a year ago today. Seems like forever since she passed. There are times the wound still feels fresh. No matter what I do to move on from this pain deep down I know I'll never get to hug her again. She gave her all so we would have ours. Her love can never be replaced.
Mum, your beautiful memories and sacrifices are my solace. Death can't take that away from me. You live on in my heart. We love and miss you mama. Keep flying my guardian angel. ❤️"

"Sei it's your birthday and regardless of where you are I will forever celebrate you. God bless this day. It was the day you brought joy to our lives. Although,  a small girl then I still remember how happy our father was when they brought you home. From the moment you were old enough you took on the role of a mother. I smile when I think of how you used to baby me, forgetting it should be the other way round. Even in your condition you were still worried about others. You were so selfless. I miss you so much. I'm trying my best with the girls but it can never be like you. The girls are fine and coping as best as they could.  We are in touch everyday. They call me to ask for permission to do things. The girls are a blessing to you. It's just painful to think you're not here to enjoy all your hard work with the girls. Sleep well  my darling sister.  I miss you  and our chats."

You were and will always be my rock and best friend. I love you forever and always."

I'm still hoping and praying that this is some sort of nightmare and I would wake up from it. I miss your smile, your laugh, your kisses, how you pinch me when you're laughing, how you come to our room to peep, how you sit in front of the tv squinting even when you have your glasses beside you. I miss everything about you.... Every single step of the way. I love you forever and a day."

"Sei,Sei, Sis as we fondly call ourselves. It's been a journey from our childhood days to our University days, then our foray into motherhood with each of us marrying and then having children and then to watching them grow,  attain adulthood, and then alas!!! When we should all be waiting to enjoy the fruits of our labour our father thought it best to call you home. 

Who are we to question our maker the giver and taker of life. 

Sei you were an epitome of a virtuous woman. ‎Selfless, hard working, always ready with your toothy, gappy smile taking on all challenges like the child of God that you are. 

You brought up your girls in an enviable Christian way and we are all proud of your accomplishments to the Glory of God. ‎

Memories of you flood my heart at this point and I thank you so much ‎for allowing me kiss you on the forehead hug and pray for you when we visited you in the hospital. You were so full of life and we jisted like old times throughout that visit and even looked forward to your Thanksgiving.

  Thank you for the optimism you ‎showed throughout your treatment period, you were still very prayerful, bubbly, all smiles, courageous, still selfless (offering your biscuits and still caring about others) Hmmm how I'm going to miss that gappy  smile of yours. Hmmmm Unquestionable  God, what can we say???..... we can only give God all the praise and thanks for enabling us all share a part of your life with you. 

Adieu darling Sei......Sleep on beloved until we meet again on the resurrection morning. Love you!!!!! ‎

Ose Ben-Willie‎"

""Blacky", that was the name Telema and you fondly called each other. She called to say you had passed and the shock was way too much. What can we say or do than to thank God in all things. He gave you to us and you made such an impact and touched so many lives in these your 47 years you sojourned on this earth. Its time for Him to have you. You are indeed exceptional. We thank God that our paths crossed and that we have memories to hold onto.
Seiyefa, you live on in our hearts. You left just before your harvest and that's what makes it so painful. God knows best
God grant you eternal rest. Sleep on Blacky.
                                                                                     Telema and Gogo."

This tribute was added by Nike Olayinka on 28th October 2015

"Sei, that was how i loved to address you because you were a cherished friend and sister from another mother and a strong one indeed.  You had always been an encourager!  I had to brace up to write this tribute as I found it so difficult to write about you in the past tense. Having known you and cherished our relationship of over 35years, of our small beginnings to where God had led us to before your demise. We had indeed come a long way, thank God for the paths we had trod together, the joys we had shared together and the challenges we had conquered.  You were a confidant and trustworthy one at that, you were always full of life despite the storms of life,

I will forever cherish the last moments we shared together, was it at your bedside in London, the spirit being one that I searched for you by all means same day you were admitted in the hospital?  Memories of evergreen times we had at OLASS and things we did and had in common, you were forever acknowledging our relationship. Times we had together at your bedside in LASUTH with your sweet sister Martha?  I had no inkling that my visit with Wunmi and Banke on the night of the 17th of October, 2015 would be the last time i will see you.  

I thank God for the last visit, that Ii was eagerly nudged by the Holy spirit to leave all I was doing to go and see you.  Those memories will keep me going till we meet at the feet of Jesus. I know without any doubt that you are resting peacefully in the bosom of our Lord Jesus free from all pains.  Yours was a short BUT very impactful and purposeful life.  Adieu my sweet sister and friend till we meet to part no more."

This tribute was added by Ore Pitan on 28th October 2015

"Dear Aunty Seiyefa, you were one of a kind. I never knew you to the extent that I wanted to, or saw you anywhere near enough. I took your presence for granted and convinced myself after so many prayers that you were recovering and that I would see you again. You always had a special place in my heart, right from when you used to take me home from school and play with me as a toddler. From a tender age I saw you as my second mother and wanted to be around you as much as possible. Your motherly nature, your kindness and your sense of humour drew me close to you. Now I understand that in addition to these things your warm heart, your energy, your strength, your resilience, your selflessness and the way you served God relentlessly caused so many people to cherish you. Your passing has been devastating but we find comfort in the fact that you are resting in the bosom of the Lord. God needed you, and His Will prevails. Your beautiful, magnetic soul will always be remembered and will be sorely missed! Rest in perfect peace."

"Seiyefa, I am so sorry about your passing. Words cannot describe the shock and discomfort and pain of hearing such a bad news from my sister and friend, Augusta. You are Augusta's little sister, that is how you remain in my minds memory, It was long long ago when we were in FSAS, when I would come to your house to see Augusta. You were a kid, how could you be gone now? I am so sorry for everyone especially Mama. I am so sorry, my little sister, May God Almighty accept your soul and grant the rest of your prayers, Amen. I thank God for your children ,the fruits you sowed."

"My God! I'm really trying to be strong for my mum, nieces and sisters but it's so hard. I miss my sister. I miss her so much, I miss our chats, I miss her calling me 'aunty Ma' when in a mischievous mood. She was my best friend. I'm grateful to God that I was able to spend quality time with her in the last four weeks of her life. I will forever cherish those moments. I remember the text message she sent to me referring to me as her hero. I smiled to myself and whispered '..and you're my rock'. She probably didn't know she was my rock. I relied on her for so many things, right from when she was little girl. We had a special bond. I love you so much my sister, my best friend. Sleep well my darling and may your soul rest in perfect peace. ❤️"

I will never forget how you always sent me caring messages with your skilled use of emoticons (coolest aunty ever) to encourage me, you will forever be loved and missed.
We will remember you, we'll remember you in our hearts, our thoughts, our memories of the times we shared, the joy, the laughter, the smiles, the times we cried and the times we fought.

"Nothing can compare with a heart so cheerful and gay,
May the heavens be open to your soul as you reach the break of day.

To whom my heart goes out,
I sing this song,
That the silver lining of this cloud,
Shall soon come,
Some may question,
The actions of The Father,
But unto His bosom,
Shall we all gather.

Consolation lies in a life of happiness and joy,
The life that is eternal can never be destroyed,
Paradise awaits, behold the clarion call,
In Christ shall you be forever immortal.

Rest in peace Aunty Seifa."

"Mary Debo, Seiyefa Oma- Wilkey...0ver 30 years that's how far we've come. Confident, Practical, Sincere, Loyal, Peaceful, Hardworking, Determined, Go Getter, Generous, Friend in a million, Sister to the core, Prayer Worrior, Woman of God.
Everything you started you strived to finish no matter the obstacle, you were highly Disciplined, You knew  God and served Him well. Sei you are that friend who even if we did not see or speak for years, whenever we did, we'd just pick up like we never missed a beat..You spoke your mind and never cared to bear a grudge, always forgiving, always ready to take correction, always ready to bend over for your family and your friends and even sometimes for strangers.
You were a big dreamer, a Woman with a purpose,  A woman of Substance, A phenomenal woman, an awesome Mother, a principled employee, an awesome business woman, a great student, Sei I could go on and on.
I would have asked God why he took you from us so soon, (since you would be spending eternity with Him anyway) But I know in my heart of hearts that he took you because you are worth more to Him, I know for a fact that we could not appreciate you like He does, and that he'd had enough of seeing you go through all that you were going through on this earth "under appreciated", and hastened your return "HOME"
Your passing was a shock Sei, my heart is aching so bad... But I thank God for the honor of knowing you my friend, you have raised 2 wonderful young ladies, we will try to continue where you left off  knowing of cos that your shoes can never be filled, knowing you and your power of impartation and old woman sense, those two young women may even be wiser than some of us lol!
Sei, You have made sure that their story shall be different from yours in every GOOD WAY...
Rest blissfully in His presence my friend, my sister my confidant, you have earned your wings, SHOW THEM OFF!"

""Aburo" as I fondly called you, what do I say but to thank God that you knew Him.  We shared a special bond because my Adedayo and your Alero were born a day apart that faithful week in July several years ago. Your faith stood the test of time through the years as you took knocks but stood upright, your strength and joyous nature you imparted to your 2 beautiful daughters.
I still remember the jokes we cracked with Ose and Martha in the hospital, after your return from that memorable London journey, the funny pictures you forwarded of Mother-Hen Martha eating.
Hmmm, we had no inkling you would be gone within a week cos we believed you would be home soon but alas it was not to be.
The shocking call on Sunday threw me completely off balance but as I got to your bedside and looked at you, sleeping peacefully on that last day, I asked God to give us the fortitude to bear your loss and direct us aright as we try to move on. May the Lord heal the pain in all our hearts cos you LEFT TOO SOON! Your memories remain. Rest in peace till we meet at the feet of Jesus Sei.

"Oh Seiyefa my beloved sister/friend, where do I start and what can I say because words cannot express the pain your passing has placed upon us all. You have left a vacuum in our lives that nothing can fill. We were planning to come home for Thanksgiving Service when you finally get back home from the hospital. The cold hands of death have stolen you from us, too soon!! The comfort I have now is knowing that you are in the best place, with The Almighty Father. He that giveth has taken and you will abide under His Wings IJMN, Amen.

Seiyefa, you touch everybody you meet positively and your life story is an inspiration for us all. Your hard-work and never-a-quitter nature has inspired me to hold on to my faith. I remember your words of encouragement and will cherish that memory for the rest of my life. You are kind to a fault and your caring nature has benefited all the people that has ever been in contact with you, hence the tributes that are pouring in.

Seiyefa, your memory will forever be with me. May your Gentle, Caring, Loving and Great Soul Rest in Perfect Peace, Amen!!"

"My dearest baby sis', "Seiyefa" I'm shocked beyond words. I spoke to you less than 24 hours before your exit, you promised to hold on to the faith, little did I know it was the last time I would hear your voice.  I'm glad I had the opportunity to spend some days with you at the hospital in London, we had our jokes and laughs, I will forever cherish those moments and take solace, rest assured that you are in a better place, without pain resting in the bosom of our Lord. I can't find the words to describe what you meant to us all. You were simply a beautiful soul, selfless, always putting others first and ready to help even when not convenient.

On your sick bed you still ordered clothes to be made for me to wear on my birthday, you said cos you weren't sure you'll be there in December, that's how selfless you were.

You were truly a virtuous woman, God fearing, loving, reliable, a rare gem and an inspiration to me especially, cos' you led me to knowing our Lord Jesus better.  I remember the last time I visited you in Nigeria, you were up about 5am everyday with a cup of tea by your side doing your morning devotion.  That was a big encouragement for me.

Seiye, I love you so much, the vacuum you left can never be filled and you can never be forgotten. My son Ore-Oluwa is still in shock knowing he will never see his 'mummy Seiyefa' again.  

Sisanmi and Alero will be fine, you left a good legacy for them.

Adieu my sweetest sister, rest in perfect peace."

"I miss you mummy. I woke up wishing it was a bad dream but it looks like it's real. I know you didn't want to leave us. But I guess God saw all you were going through and He knew you didn't deserve that. It'll be selfish to be angry that he took you and I can't question Him. Mum please rest well. Don't worry about Alero and I, we'll be fine. We will be strong for each other. You'll be proud of us. You will get stars on your crown in heaven because of us. I promise. Just watch over us.
I love you so so much. We love you."

Totally shocked at your departure. There was not the slightest inkling that my visit with Nike at your hospital bedside in London on the 27th of September would be the last time I would get to see you.

"My darling Aunty, there are not enough words in the world to describe what a lovely person you were. I always remember you smiling and being happy no matter what life threw at you. Despite your illness these past few months it was still others you put before yourself. You were the most selfless and loving person I know. You have left the suffering of this world and you are now with God. It is selfish that I wish you were still here but you are now at peace and there will be no more pain. I thank God I was given the opportunity to see you one last time before you departed, not did I know that it would be the last time I would hug kiss and say goodbye to you ever again. You were a wonderful Aunty, Sister, Daughter and Mother and I know you are wishing us well from up there in Heaven. I love you Aunty Seiyefa, Rest in Perfect Peace."

I told you to hang in there, that God was in control, you said you would try! My heart aches knowing that I and we would never see you again, that you are in a better place with Baba God.

You were my rock, my support system, my everything. I still can't believe you're gone. I wake up each morning praying it's just a bad dream. I know you won't want us to be sad so I will try to be strong. You were a fighter and the most courageous person I know. Beautiful in and out, you loved and served God with all your heart and might. I will always keep your memories alive through one way or another. Your teachings, words of wisdom and everything else will be with me and passed on to generations to come. You're a great woman. Rest in peace my love ❤"

"Ha! My darling "Dancing Partner" Seiyefa Oma-Wilkie as we fondly called each other. Little did I realise I was saying my final goodbye to you just 3 or so weeks ago when we came to see you.

You lived right & ran a great race and though I know you're in a better place it hurts deeply because you were not only my dearest friend's sister but also mine.

We love you but I guess God loves you more! I grieve not only with my friend Martha Adetula but also your other siblings Mabel Pitan, Augusta Omole, Tonipre Isokpan, your beautiful daughters and most especially your aged mother.

Our hearts are truly heavy but all we can wish you now is peace in the great beyond. Rest beautifully the one who was beautiful both inside out. You'd be sorely missed xxx"

"Seiyefa, what can I say that has not been said by family members and friends. At times I wake up believing you are only sleeping, then it comes into my consciousness that you have exited this world to be with your creator.
You went through a lot, but you never wanted to disturb others with your challenges, which is an indelible mark you possess.
All I can say at this point is sleep well with our Lord Jesus Christ. Rest in peace. Your younger sister. TP"

"On the eighteenth of October you passed away.It’s hard to believe that you’d go this way.
An angel on earth with a heavenly smile.
Every second we spoke was worth the while.
I only met you this year & I called you mom.
Your love was pure and ever so strong.
I’ll never be able to send you a kiss.
I hope the last one was stronger than this.
May your soul find peace in the arms of the Lord,
Your heart feel light at the sight of our God.
May your daughters feel the strength to live,
And feel the peace only heaven can give.
So now I pray your torch shines forever
And your smile eternally burns alight.
May heaven rejoice
As an angel takes flight."

"God fearing, generous, kind, loving, sweet, caring, honest, elegant, fastidious, brave, strong, bubbly, energetic, resilient, thoughtful, hopeful, selfless. Yes, Seiyefa possessed all of these qualities for sure. Whatever the obstacle,  Sei would always bounce back, I wish you had bounced back in this case. Maybe it is the will of God after all I wish I could believe. You will be sorely missed. I never knew anything could hit me so badly. The Lord who gave us all emotions will heal the pain of your loss but you have left an indelible mark that can never be wiped off my heart. I pray mama, your siblings and rest of the family be consoled and your lovely daughters find solace and greatness is their portion. They will continually dwell and serve in the house of The Lord.I know that will be your wish for them and great shall be their peace. You have trained them well. Your legacy lives on in your daughters and they will do greater exploits in Jesus' name. I love you and will miss you forever my childhood friend and sister."

"My mum  was an angel that walked the earth. She was a strong, loving, selfless and God-fearing woman. Words can't describe or express the pain I feel right now but I know she's resting peacefully in the bosom of the Lord. She would want us to be strong right now and remember the good times we spent with her. Earth was not worthy of such an angel and I know that He called her home to earn her wings. Keep on flying mummy. Please don't forget us, we'll never forget you."
