|The memory of Yetunde will forever remain with us..|
"You left us a year ago today dearest sis,
and how I've missed you!
'You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye.
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knows why.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home."
Love you always!"
"Yetunde,can't believe its already one year since you left this world.You have always been in my thoughts I really do miss you a lot. Continue to rest in peace."
"Yesterday was my birthday, couldn't imagine a birthday without you, my first birthday without you. How I miss how u used to call my name, how u wish me happy Birthday. I miss you sis. Your memory lives on sis."
"Yeti mama, hmmm almost a year now, can't imagine how I have been a able to cope with the pain, truth is I haven't, never a day passes without me thinking about you, wondering when I will wake up from this dream but alas it's not a dream, physically you are not with us anymore but in REALITY you will always be with us, they say when someone you love becomes a memory then these memories are treasured, you will always be treasured my dear sis, love you always."
"Yetty mama ! I can't believe I would be writing a tribute to you in several years, but here we are....I miss you every single day. We all miss you"
"its too difficult to believe you are gone!
yetty mama you live on!"
"Ten months today since you left. Every single moment without you has not been easy. The tears are ever fresh. Life has not been the same without you. To say we miss you so very much is an understatement. How is it that you're not here? I ask that question every single day. Still unbelievable. I miss your laughter, your helping me see things clearly, sorting me out, your dogged support for family etc. Just realizing the things I took for granted... miss you sooo much dear sis. Love you always."
"Yeti mama, you were a gift to the meaning of life, comfort is knowing you,love and miss dearly."
"Miss you sis!"
"Woke up this morning and was wondering why 25th was a special date for me and within few hours later I remembered it was your birthday
I Miss you dearly every 13th of each month I remember you yetunde
"Been thinking how today would be without your physical presence. woke up few days back thinking are u really gone? or is this just a dream I am yet to awake from?
many unanswered questions.......
True, life would never be the same, time cannot completely heal and none/nothing can fill the vacuum u left
Yetty mama you forever live!
"hmmmm..the thoughts of your departure breaks me.12months ago today I saw pictures of those beautiful cakes esp. the Man.U's..my heart is heavy right now cos i miss you everyday. cos of you, I have come to like Man.u..Mourinho, Zlatan joined Man.U..dunno if angels watch soccer but for real, amongst so many things we shared, soccer was prime. I remembered telling you Mou wud take over the coaching role @Man.U..remember? Has any1 told you Man.U is looking formidable again..?no amount of tears can bring you back but the void your exit created remains..
You will always be missed MamaYetti..continue to rest in the bosom of your creator..adieu"
"Happy Birthday to a great friend like you. Sending all my love and wishes to you. Maybe your gentle soul rest in Peace."
"Happy birthday girlfriend.
We had plans for today didn't we? But God obviously had other plans. His thoughts are way higher than ours. What is important is that you lived and He allowed us to be a part of your life in the way that we were. You have left us with unforgettable memories. Memories that make us laugh, cry and wish that you were still around. You are irreplaceable.
We love and miss you always..."
"Happy 43rd birthday sis, I know you are rejoicing with the angels. We remember always not only today. Your memory will forever remain fresh, rest on Sis. We love and miss you."
"My first ever birthday without you. Your absence is deeply felt. And to think that in a few days it will be yours. We've never had it this way. You have been my birth month buddy. All of my life. It hurts to have one without you. This time last year you helped me celebrate. I couldn't put the picture of my birthday cake on my dp because I didn't like the way it looked. You asked for it and put it up on yours. You had more understanding of what family meant than any of us. I miss you every moment of every day. I'd give up anything to have you back. Anything. You have taught us deep lessons but how I wish it did not have to be at this great cost. To appreciate one another in the here and now. I used to think I did. I hope even now that I do. I pray that I appreciate everyone even more as long as I have the opportunity.
I keep asking God if you really had to go. Oswald Chambers said, “There will come one day a personal and direct touch from God when every tear and perplexity, every oppression and distress, every suffering and pain, and wrong and injustice will have a complete and ample and overwhelming explanation.” I'm still waiting for that day because your departure is the biggest question that remains for me. However, the only way I cope is by hoping in God's love and promises. Missing you inexplicably..."
"8 months gone....life would never remain the same.
there's no day that passes that I don't think about u.
solace- u made an appropriate farewell.
consolation- u are in a better place.
love u, miss u.
"Yetty mama oh!!! 8months today and it feels like you've been gone feels like you've been gone for decades. Over time mama just to make ends meet. I miss u dearly, we all do"
"Yetunde. Na wa o. Eight months today and I still wonder at the incredulity of your passing. I think of you everyday missing you so much and wishing terribly that this did not happen, that I still have my sister around and the world is alright. It's your birthday in less than 2 weeks. Had hoped to improve on last year's performance with better planning and definitely getting you your Man U cake! But nonetheless you were so happy last year. Still have your smiling pictures. I'm glad we did what we could. I'm glad you were happy. I imagine you even happier now even though I only know in part... You know better and are happier than we can know right now. It just hurts so much... I love you dear sis. I will see you in the morning."
"8 months Yeti, remembering you on this day- like everyday since you left, comforted by so.many memories, the tears may have gone but the ache still remains, gone but sadly missed, rest on sis, love you dearly."
"No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why.
. Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.memories of a loved one is blessed. Love you."
"Never met you before but your footprints says much after your departure. we love u but God Love u more than we do. Rest in perfect peace of the Lord."
"Yetty mama, as day passes by, lots and lots of gist to tell you. I miss your presence in my life and in the family as a whole. Really miss your words of encouragement. My daily consolation is that you are in a better place. Miss you more than anyone can imagine. This month is your birth month and it reminds me so much of you. My gist partner, my lookalike, my sister and friend, you always had our backs as an elder sister that you were. You will always be a part of our family. You are loved and missed always. Xoxo"
"My deepest condolences , my dearest friend Yeye, you always ask me why I call you Yeye, miss you so much."
"Dear Yetty, hardly does any day passes without thinking of you, somehow, something , however little makes me remember you. Was watching the TV today and I saw a lady wearing the type of pants you gave me one time that I really enjoyed.you were a giver , you always had something to give. It's difficult looking around the house without seeing things that came from you.how will I ever forget you, how?"
"My graduation was today, 13th July 2016. Coincidentally it marks 7 months since you've been gone. I never imagined this day without you. It was such an emotional day... Thank you for the rock solid support and encouragement I never for one moment lacked in you. I kept telling Toyin how proud and excited you would have been. Even more excited than I am. Yes that's you. You would have put my picture up on your dp and bragged about me to everyone in your office and whoever else cared to listen. You've always been so proud of us. You celebrated every little achievement as though it were a great feat! I can only imagine your joy and pride on this day! How I missed you! How we all missed you today especially! Your absence was hugely felt by everyone. We miss your input and contribution on the group chat. Oh how we miss you dear sis. Every single day I imagine that this is a nightmare I need to wake up from. Ha! Yetunde, na wa o... However, still in submission to the Sovereignty of God! Love you forever...miss you loads!"
"Hummn! Been running away from visiting here but here I am. 6months gone and i haven't spoken to nor seen you. I miss you every single day,moment M time T. I know you are in a better place that's our only consolation and that God sure knows knows what He is doing!!! I have made up my mind to see you again......on that day.forever in my heart"
"Never did stop writing, never could have , memories of you have always been too real, Six months ago you taught us to appreciate each other more albeit in a painful way, time has not changed that, doubt if it could the pain is still there some days more bearable than others, miss you dearly and you will always be remembered until that day when we will all meet again....rest on dear"
"....hmmmmm......6months...you still live on.
the vacuum becomes overwhelming a times but our consolation is you're in a better place!"
"Six months today without you. So much tears of pain and frustration. You are sorely missed Yetunde. We miss you as individuals and as a family. That you could leave in the way you did still beats me. So many unanswered questions which we are only able to bear by our submission to the sovereignty of God! We may have failed but God did not. He cannot. No day passes that I do not reminisce about you and our times together. The laughter, love and silly things we did as siblings. The things we shared...shopping is no longer fun. I see a dress or shoe and say to myself "Yetunde would have loved that", or "that would look great on Yetunde". But what are these earthly things compared to where you are...walking the streets of gold. We just so miss you inexplicably Yetunde. There's so much to share... But more importantly, this is just to let you know that six months after, and you still remain as you will ever be, evergreen in our hearts. I love you!"
"Hmmm! Sis! Today marks six months of your departure from this world, just like yesterday, Oh! Wish you were still here with us to share in our laughter, joy, success and to also encourage us when we are down. We all miss you so so much! I wonder what your thoughts are over there. You will always be a part of our lives and family even with your absence. Continue to sleep in God's bossom. For me, missing you is an understatement. I can still hear the way you call me 'Motee'. Rest on my look alike."
"My love, My bestie....am short of words. You left too very soon.....Too soon i still cant believe you are gone. Everyday I ask myself was I good to you the way you was good to me? All I know is I miss you. I have to ooo many gist for you. But I know you are in a good place. Rest on my dear.....you ALWAYS had my back....."
"Yetty, Now I know that the best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. You always remain in my heart. Remember that I love and care about you."
"Yetunde! It sounds so cliché to say that it seems so unreal that you are gone but that is our experience. When we think about you the mind takes a moment to take in the fact that you have indeed left us. Hmmn. How did we get here? How could this have happened just like that? It's difficult to reconcile that weekend ending with your sudden passing. The tears are ever fresh as though you had just left. I can't believe it is almost 6 months since that dreadful night. I miss you every single moment of everyday. I miss talking to you about stuff and getting your clear headed opinion about things. I miss your laughter and the things we can't wait to share with each other. I miss our early morning talks as you got ready for work. I miss your positive and childlike attitude when dealing with people and their bs. I miss your passionate update on football. It was a bittersweet feeling when ManU won the FA cup and you weren't here to witness it. I could only imagine your excitement! I wonder what you would have thought of Mourhino as the new manager of ManU.
I miss you dear sis. We all do. More that is possible to imagine.
My solace however remains in the fact that you are in a better place. Keep resting dear one. We love you and your memory remains evergreen in our lives."
"Your memory remains fresh on my mind. Love you beyond forever."
"My dearest sis, ur thoughts keeps coming to mind every now and then, I truly miss and will always miss you. Continue to rest sis."
"Words are not enough to describe how much my heart aches whenever the thought of your absence comes to mind, I don't think I can ever be the same without you. I will continue to live life as though you were still here because to me you are still a part of this family and will always be even in your absence. I wish you never left but God surely knows best. I MISS YOU SISTA, more than ever. Your smile and laughter will always be in my memory. Funny enough I still pray for you. Love you Sista na!"
"Oh Yetty! Still can't believe your gone,so full of life! When I look at your pictures I almost want to touch you and believe that everything is still the same way they used to be.....wondering what exactly your doing and how you are felling about all these , I can only imagine. Thought it would be nice to have a business name in memory of you, so we decided that Carol's Quizyn would be good. Am walking at seeing you again, though I know things will be quite different from the way they where , but hey! Sister indeed, Sisters FOREVER!!! We will always, always luv u"
"We were together, once, complete for as long as I can remember and that was for so many years, we agreed to be together no matter what, so we did Yeti... in unspoken terms, we did not have to have a roundtable discussion we all just knew it and agreed to it, that as a family we should and must stick together, views and ideologies may differ but never conflicting for "family is everything". You opted out .. not on our agreement for you will never do such, you left our midst unannounced and slipped into eternity never to be seen in this life again until we come over. So painful and difficult to accept we all miss you, and love you much more.Whether in spirit or physical your presence will always be amongst us until we see face to face, rest on dearest sister."
"just yesterday the lawyer handling your apartment called and asked if I were your sister, with joy I said oh yes! He wanted the key to your room, it was obvious someone else was about taking it over. I remember my last visit with your gals, Defe n Kokolicious,we had so much fun. We were still planning on visiting again when you left...will always love u"
"....still lost for words, ah ah! Yetty!!!! Shikenan!!!miss hearing your voice. How you love to show me off to your friends In a stylish way. Am proud of you and I thank God for the life you had. we will forever uphold your virtue..."
"Miss my look alike so much, lives can never be the same without you. We love and miss you endlessly. But I know God has a reason for everything. Rest on sis"
"It's been a long time without you my Sis, I will tell you all about when I see u again...miss you my love"
"Day and night memories keep floating before me, streams of it, endlessly. You dear sister were a wonderful person and will ever be remembered how can you do that......just leave without saying goodbye or last words, guess it will the most, choice was not yours to make I know. The Lord knows best, oh how I miss you. Rest on sis."
"Hmm! Sista na, miss you more than anything in this world! Lots to tell you, really need all those your advice now more than ever! Family is indeed everything. I love and will always love you dear sis."
"PARADOX!! Or paradoxical....you always being here , the last 3 months being stronger and not actually here I mean in the physically, my dearest sister you will always be represented, everything happened yesterday and yesterday will always be a CONSTANT never changing, miss a lot though but a year from today? It will still be yesterday, love you sis, rest on."
"Miss you gal ! You have no idea. I will always!!!"
"Three months!! Yeti, ha! Haven't heard or seen you never to anyway, not in this physical world, more like three years, your absence is choking,,you endured so much and still were always there for everyone in own unique ways, your impact on us will forever remain, when I write I feel you standing there and reading them, we miss you so much especially those early days when we all were much younger, every memory shared.....Yeti you are treasured, highly and missed dearly, rest on dear sister until that day when we will all be united again never to be separated. Love you"
"Sunday 13th, three months ago today. Still can't believe you have gone beyond the world we once shared. Still difficult to go on without you. Your memories are all we've got. Everything reminds me of you. How I miss our talks, your laughter and the love we shared. Still walk into stores in search of things you'd like. Miss bouncing things off you and listening to your voice of reason. Miss you asking for work related ideas on a project and your passion for football you shared so unreservedly. We miss your input on Family Ties. We all miss you. Mummy is ok too. She misses you so much and we try to fill in the void you left behind but...we can only try. No one can take your place in her heart. Our hearts are broken. We talk about you everyday and cry almost as many times. This separation is hard and difficult for all of us. The finality on this side of the veil is incomprehensible. It was so sudden that no goodnights were said. But we hold on to the faith that God did what was best because He is too good to be cruel! His ways are not our ways. We only know in part now...but will know in full when we see Him. You cannot come to us but we will come to you... In the meantime, do whatever it is that heaven finds for you to do till we meet again. My dear sister, we love you evermore!"
"We had a little gathering today. Wish you were there too, we talked about you and how suddenly you left us. We miss you dear sis. We all love you. You will forever be in our hearts. I miss you sista., lots to tell you."
"Its been a long time , without you sis, I 'll tell you all about it when I see you again"
"Miss you a lot!!! You can't imagine...wish I could turn back the hands of time..."
"Sista, wish you were here, lots to tell and share with you. Miss you every passing minute. Will always love you."
"Been days since, but never one passes nor an hour without you being in my thoughts, it's always like yesterday, you will forever be missed, everyday as it passes reinforces this truth that all we have of you are memories, my dear sister your impact in many lives was awesome, in death? You still live- in our hearts, always to be remembered, rest on"
"Sista, can't still believe you are gone. Miss you so so much everyday."
"I miss you sis, life really hasn't been the same without you. I remember alot about how you always stick your neck out for your siblings, always. I love and miss u sista. Continue to rest."
"No one know how much I miss you,
No one knows the bitter pain
as a family we have gone through since we lost you
Life has never been the same.
In our hearts your memory lingers,
Sweetly tender, fond and true.
There is not a day, dear sister,
That we do not think of you, I miss you Yeti and I know you miss us too even though you are in a far better place, many a time tears shed bring relief and comfort but we will all meet at the feet of Jesus that is by far more consolation than any, love you, rest on dear sister."
"You were there before I came,you had my back from day one till you left, we shared, our tots,plans, even what we had .....Dunno how am going to cope...I have tried! I really have!! It's not just easy living without you.just like that you disappeared, your pictures, shoes,clothes, bags, ur beautiful writing, documents e.t.c. Your smell so feels your clothes...I hug and smell them at times just to feel you...I see u in everything I do. At times when I come back from an outing, I say perhaps Yetty is waiting for me at the door, but alas! I ask God to help me make heaven so I can see you again. I will make sure that I make it, this I pray and pledge... The gals and I talk about you every morning. They go " every time you call mama, you say "Yetty mama" mimicking the way I call. Just told Defe that I can never forget your Mtn number, so I punched d numbers on my fone and Defe said dial it mom, I know no one's going to pick it"
"Can't take count, how many times every single day of the week and every time of the day I think about you, many times with tears, I should be happy that you are in the best place to be....with the Lord "in a far better place" I just miss you and wish I could just have a glimpse of you one more time, might be able to handle this emptiness I carry along in me all the time. Yeti wish you could read this, I MISS YOU SO, SO MUCH.Am comforted however in I will see you again in resurrection, then there will be no more sudden parting, no pain, no unhappiness or heaviness of heart, rest on my lovely sister."
"Ha! Yetunde! Can't believe that u r truly gone! It is just like yesterday that I saw u in Bros Ray's funeral. Only like yesterday and u r gone. O death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory? Our hope remains. We will meet at the feet of Jesus and u can't stop it! We will meet Yetunde and death or grave will not be able to stop it! Sleep on beloved. Sleep and take thy rest. We love you but you are loved more by The Lord. Good night!"
"My Pidgin buddy!!!
Hmmn... Everytime I visit this site words fail me! Two months ago today, you slipped away into eternity. I am still waiting to wake up from this nightmare! We still cannot comprehend what happened... We miss you more with each passing day and our tears are ever fresh. You have left a gaping vacuum that has changed our lives forever. Miss you calling to tell or run things by me. How I miss our early morning talks on your way to work. Oh, what I'd do just to hear you call my name in the unique way you do and to hear your laughter just one more time!
Our faith and consolation rests in God's sovereignty for we know that He is ALWAYS good! Yes! We rest and trust in His unfailing love. Rest on my sweet and beloved sister, till we meet to part no more!"
"Yetunde my dear friend,you were such a humble person a true friend too.
You will be missed and never forgotten by me
Rest in peace friend."
"Yeti I wake up every morning thinking I can just call on you wherever you may be, tried to come to terms with the fact that physically I can no longer see you again, ever again, l cannot get over this, as the days go by the stronger I feel the vacuum you left behind, my heart as with every part of me misses,every memory of you is treasured for new ones can no longer be created. Oh.......how I miss you, your sweet smile and your dimples.....love you, rest on dear sister."
"Exactly 2month You Left Us Without Saying Goodbye....woke up with your Tot, all d time we spent together .....I think of you every min. I will Forever miss you my dearest sis...Rest on sis."
"Yetty mama my best sis n friend, still find it difficult to believe I won't see you anymore...really missed you somuch,think of you everyday & night. Sure you are in a better place....."
"When mum sometimes talk to me on phone, often she will mistakingly call your name instead of mine. She misses you so much, I know she draws her strength from God. Continue to rest sista na. "Chara life" as you often say."
"Partings come and hearts are broken
Loved ones go with words unspoken
Ours is just a simple prayer
God bless and keep you in His care
Rest on my NO PEPPER.."
"I miss you Yeti, how I wish you have spent a little bit more of time with us maybe even if it was to just say Goodbye but alas I know this would be more unbearable, I believe you truly are resting waiting for that great day when we will all be together again, never to be separated, rest on dear sister."
"May your gentle soul continue to abide in the bosom of the most HIGH..."
"Beautiful Yetunde, so gentle and easy going. Memories of you will linger on. Comforted in the knowledge of the truth that, you are now in His presence, wow! You are experiencing the glory before those of us remaining here, how peaceful, beautiful, awesome can that be. No more worries girl, no more sighs, no more pains, no more tears, no more discomfort, no more troubles of this world, you've beaten everything now. Enjoy your rest honey. Your family misses you beyond words but I know God is present."
"l recal us all growing up together at estate we will cram ourselves in that little and dad drop us off at St. Louis... these memories keep flooding in as though they happened yesterday,your physical presence will be missed but in our hearts you will ever be there- they say, "To live in the heart of a loved one is not dying" ahh..then Yeti, my loving sister am comforted, in that you will always be with till we meet again PHYSICALLY. Love you and rest on."
"still finding it hard to come to terms with your departure.. sometimes I find me waiting that you'll return. you were a true sister and good friend. rest one, lovely. you are a rare gem and a rare gem is you.."
"....when I wake up ,its your tot, yetty!!!!!!!!!!! Why na! Haba!!!!"
"We knew almost all your friends that you even sometimes bring them home to meet your family, from which we became family friends with some. "Sista", I find myself living life in the way you do things even when I get angry and want to express myself in the way Tayo would have done normally. I just hear a voice telling me, sista would have done or said it this way. Miss you more every single day. I miss everything about you, the jokes and laughter we shared :)"
"Yetty!!! It still is like a dream! Wish I had spent more time with you when you came for the wedding...was very busy you know. But I thank God for even given us the privilege to spend those precious moments with you...so much to gist about,so much to laugh about, so much to.....I miss you my pal!!!"
"Dear yetty, I haven't been myself since you left. I think of you every moment M, time T. Your Defe and Eniola won't stop talking about you. They miss you so much. Defe said she wish you had kids so at least they would be cousins with them( Defe n Nini) she said she wonder why God took you,and I explained to her that God is God n a good God ,and that that's how He I wants it.nshe said so there is no blame game here.....Lord no blame game here!!!! We bow to your sovereignty"
"I think of you every time, miss you more everyday life isn't just the same without you Yeti I know you are in a better place free from all troubles associated with this life, rest on dear sister"
""Sista" miss you dearly"
"Yeti it is said that time heals all wounds inflicted by this journey of life on earth, your leaving us will take a lifetime, if at all, going through your pictures today brings back memories, memories of your struggles and how you never wanted these struggles shared by others, it wasn't fair, to you nothing could be more right. Yeti you could have stayed much longer but alas, my dear sister you will always be alive with us nothing can change that not even death, rest on sister"
"I remember tieing your gele at Lanre's engagement and you said it wasn't as fine as mine, that night you said to me, " Tayo, we will wake up early tomorrow (the wedding day) so we can have time to tie the gele so it will look beautiful. Lol. Your memories will always remain with us. Sleep on sis"
"At the sight of your picture, I still wonder if you are truly gone.I miss you...."
"Hello sis, life hasn't been the same without you. No zeal to carry on. Miss you everywhere, miss you at home, at work, in the bus, on the street, in church, miss you so so much.everybody misses you."
"My pal! Yetty mama ke nan!!! You still are a part of me! Miss you dearly,beyond words. Think of you every time...always"
"Yeti, you have always been so dear to me, memories of you will always linger for as long as there is breath in this nostrils,I will always love you my dear sister, till that day when we will all meet again at the feet of Jesus, rest on."
"Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about you.. Caroline Yetunde Omo Kuju.. Rest in the lord!"
"Miss you so much sis, always in my heart."
Have a suggestion for us?
