"My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Yetunde oni.The death of a loved one can be very painful and weight heavily on our hearts.while you grieved continue to take comfort in gods promises at (Matt 4:5) which says " Happy are those who mourn,since they will be comforted. And ( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4) says " Praise be the God of all comfort..who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trials with the comfort that they receive from God," may you all continue to hold the precious memories of your dearly beloved Yetunde close to your hearts and know that one day soon we will see the ones we lost in death again."
"Reading through some of the tributes, I'm moved to tears, not out of sympathy for the loved ones who miss u dearly but a sense of personal loss, that I missed out of meeting someone so real and down to earth.
Looking at you through Bisola, u must have been a straight forward, honest and down right real woman with a good kind and compassionate heart and equally God fearing to have raised such a gem of a lady.
I pray the love u have worked and sacrificed for remains intact as a reflection of your loving and lovable self."
"Deep in our hearts a memory is kept, of one we loved and shall never forget.
I still can’t bring myself to believe this is happening. Not everyone is privileged with the gift of a loving mother and yet because of my loving nana, I am fortunate to have two of them. You flew all over the world and was always there for me.
Nana has always been a mother to me, teaching her kids the strength to carry on and fight through any obstacles in my way. Nana never stopped to remind me that I am destined for greatness and no one can stop God’s plan
Nana always had so much love and support to give. She rarely turned us down when asking for favors even when it meant her going out of her way. Even when we couldn’t get everything thing we wanted, nana would find an alternative and present it with all her heart.
Nana, I will forever remember the lessons, guidance and support you gave me through my young age. It’s a privilege to have met you in this life.
May God bless and keep you in his care.
In memory’s garden, we meet everyday.
Rest Well Nana,
"Dear Oni Family,
I am so very sorry to learn of the death of your beloved Yetunde. as you stated, you received the "rudest shock". Death is the most crushing blow. It is so cruel and unspeakably painful. That is why when Jehovah God created man, he gave them only his best, nothing evil or cruel. But his adversary introduced death to mankind. since that time, Jehovah God thru his son Jesus Christ, will stamp out death forever under his Kingdom rule. (1 Cor. 15:26) I hope that in time you will find comfort knowing that there will be a resurrection. "Death will be no more, neither will mourning nor pain." (John 5:28, 29) All of earths woes will be gone (Rev. 21:3, 4) Please visit JW.ORG and search resurrection so you can learn of the wonderful promises our creator has in store for mankind. In the meantime, may he help bind up your broken hearts in due time.
Again, sincere condolences."
"You are rare and full of life. You are Always ready to listen , You constantly guided us through the path of Honour ,You are an advocate for peace above everything , with a heavy heart I grief but I trust God to grant you eternal rest . I smile because you are being honoured as you rightly deserve.
Till we meet to part no more.
Love you always ,
"I met her briefly when I visited Bisola at home but prior to that, through interactions with Bisola, she was portrayed as someone who is so hardworking and industrious. However, when I got to meet her, she was doing something as usual.
Much more than who she was, what she has produced greater people in her children, training and nurturing them to be who they are today.
She has left a mark in time that will not be erased from the minds of those who she has influenced.
I didn't exactly have prolonged interactions with you but I remember vividly the first and last time I met you.
If there's anything you oozed of, it was a hardworking, graceful, simple, caring-so-much for her loved ones, travelling woman. You were definitely a Power Woman!
The first day I visited your home, I kept telling Bisola how serene and lovely your home was. That doesn't come ordinary, A good home cannot be masked. It comes from a serene, lovely heart finding outward expression.
The biggest testimony for me, are the lives of your kids. I've known Bisola for a couple years now and she has never, never for once been a disappointment. She's full of God, grace, strong will and a kind soul! I've also met her siblings briefly, and I share similar opinion.
Philippians 1:21: Alive, I'm Christ's messenger; dead, I'm his bounty. Life versus even more life! I can't lose!
Thank you Mummy Oni for a life of glory! Your light shines on in the hearts of your dearest Bisola, Kunmi, and Feranmi."
"Words are not enough to express the shock of your exit from this world. We believe the Good lord knows best. A pleasant woman full of warmth grace and upmost humility. She will forever be missed. On behalf of the founder, management, staff and students of st bernadette school and Doregos Private Academy ipaja lagos Our deepest sympathy and condolence to the families of the Oni's and Oduntan's on the loss of a Great woman of virtue. May her gentle soul forever rest in peace. AMEN"
I still can't believe this is happening, I'm deeply hurt because I know close you and your children are but I console myself knowing Heaven has gained an angel
Thank you for going out of your way to check up on my mom and I when I was having school issues, my mom and I will always be grateful"
"I have no doubt that you were a great woman just by interacting with your children! You have passed the baton and I know they are more than willing to continue on earth. I pray for and grace for the family. We have a Hope, that one day we shall all meet again! Rest Well Ma"
"What a loss!!! Your amiable nature cannot be forgotten. The few moments we shared together left a very good memory of you. May your gentle soul rest in peace."
"Though I never met u ma but the apple they say does not fall far from the tree and because u have raised such a wonderful Godly daughter (Abisola), I can tell u were such an angel. Continue to rest in peace in the bossom of the Lord God Almighty...
And as the bible says in John 14:16 - "And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—" I pray in the name of Jesus that the advocate will never depart from the presence of all the loved ones you have left behind. He will help them, comfort them and be with them forever. Amen."
When Kunmi called me crying, saying "pray for my mummy, they've taken her away from me". I couldn't believe my ears. You had a very warm heart, always looking out for other people. I always told Kunmi about how much I love how you were close to your siblings, especially Daddy Lanre. Anytime I come to the house for the weekend, you'll ask me like 1million times "are you comfortable?" "Are you okay?"
It's still like a dream, just this morning I was thinking "just like that". I know you're in a better place. We will be strong for you ma.
We miss you still.
Everyone is working hard to give you a befitting service
We are holding on to your strength ma, "what would you have done"
We love you,
Always and forever"
"Your exit has left us with so many unanswered questions, probably questions that will never be answered until we all meet our Maker. But in all, we have learnt to lean on God's love during times like this, to trust Him and believe in His promises.
We are not going to mourn your exit but celebrate the light you left in our lives before exiting. We miss you already and we wish this is just a dream we will wake up from. You will be missed.
You always treated me like a son, you call me and celebrate me on my days of glory. I remember vividly our last phone call. You were one of my biggest fans, I will miss those phone calls.
You make the best shrimp soup, i always asked Bisola for the next breakfast meeting just so i can come have some of your shrimp soup. I have tried several times to make mine but it came out nothing close to yours. I may never have a shrimp soup as good as yours again. You will be missed.
75% of the times i called Bisola and i asked about you, her response was usually "Mumsy travelled". You were always on the move, I usually teased Bisola that no one cares about her and that was why she was always left behind. You were travel goals. You will be missed.
You would call me and ask me to encourage Bisola and Feranmi, you had so much ambition for them. Sometimes, it felt like you had more ambition for them than they had themselves. You wanted the best for them and wanted them to be trailblazers. You were a Leader and a Mother. They looked up to you for direction and inspiration, i can't imagine the despair they must be going through now. You will be missed.
Most importantly, we have learnt to trust God's plan for our lives and have faith + hope in His promises. We will hold on to that now more than ever. We love you but we are sure God loves you more. We are confident that you are with him smiling at us. We will continue to live your legacy and keep you alive in our hearts. Sleep on...forever missed."
"I am so very sorry for your loss. Our Creator's purpose was for us to live forever, so having to cope with the death of a loved one feels very unnatural. Soon, we will be able to experience the truthfulness of Gods promise "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing" (1 Corinthians 15:26). What better hope than to know that God will very soon bring an end to death and all the pain we face (Revelation 21:4). My sincere condolences to all who knew and loved Yetunde. For additional comfort from the scriptures, I invite you to please visit www.JW.org."
I can't believe I am here writing this, I honestly want to believe that I am in a bad dream and I would wake up soon.
Olanrewaju oduntan" as you fondly call me , there was no shortcut for you.
I am at peace knowing that you made impact in my life and in that of my siblings.
You know you will be missed every second everyday. Mummy, your brother can't sleep he's so restless, you are his back bone , friend, confident and mother.
Thanks for raising me , thanks for spanking me when I needed it.
All those times Bisola and I played pranks by going to turn up, and you called me ... I miss those times
Funny how you asked about the new job I got , you asked if I loved it.
Your baby oyindamola oduntan doesn't know that you are with Jesus, how can I tell her ?
Mummy you arranged things before you left us.
I am at peace knowing that death didn't prevail, heaven gained an angel.
I love you Mama
I am still waiting to wake up from this very scary dream!"
Have a suggestion for us?
