I only got to know of Abi two months ago through the Foodtherapy platform however she made such an impact in the short time I knew her. She was our group captain, always encouraging us to work out and eat well, every morning I woke up to a motivational message from her. Her messages to me were full of care and warmth. Captain, your presence will be so missed! Rest in perfect peace

It's amazing how someone can make such a huge impact in one's life within a short period of time.

In the few months I've known you, you became a strong support system. You checked up on me consistently through the period of my son's admission at the hospital. We were determined to make sure we exercised and ate healthy in May. So, you kept encouraging me daily and calling me out on the group each day I didn't show up. You were more than a group captain, you became my friend.

You were indeed a blessing in the short time I knew you. Heaven has gained an angel but we miss you here. You remain in our hearts forever and we can only console ourselves that one day, we will meet to part no more.

Sleep on angel. ❣❣❣❣

I still can’t believe it, this hurts sooo much.... it’s been a few hours I heard now and I still can’t grasp this, I’m struggling ABIODUN! You buzzed me on May 19th 2021 my birthday, it hurts that I’ve deleted all my messages cos it was a lot... how could I have known it will be my last with you... Aby I smiled every time I ran into you in faculty of sciences UNILAG. Though I’ve known you since Queens College. The tiny shrieking voice at the front of row two in Y! That voice became sweet, friendly and warm. I looked forward to hearing from you through ENNY! I don’t know what happened but wished I talked to you more often ABIODUN OKEKAZEEM! Sun re oooo

Abiodun was very sweet intelligent hardworking , Her smiles light up every one’s mood. She is always there for all of us. I Remembered my son’s first Birthday she made sure everything thing went well. She flew in that morning with mo. It was such a pleasant surprise. We will all miss you dearly.

Aby,
We weren't close. I knew you over the years as Tunde's girlfriend then wife. It's really inspiring over the last few days hearing and reading about how warm and caring you were. So i have no worries about how you are right now. You are great resting in the bosom of your Lord.
It seems all the special ones are going early nowadays. It makes one wonder about the rest of us that are left! We who are left should take a cue from people like you and live our lives walking with God purposefully. We should love more and give of ourselves more as Jesus commanded us to love our neighbours as ourselves. We only have one life to live, whatever length, let it be impactful like yours!
May God grant Tunde, your mum, siblings and the rest of your loved ones the strength to bear your departure. Sun re.

Dear Abi Makay,

Your good nature and energy were contagious, you made such a great impact in our maintenance group. You say the nicest things, you cheer and encourage everyone.

Our paths crossed barely 2 months ago but I will miss you.

My friend and confidant ❤️

Shared by akinboro yewande on June 4, 2021
I don't think we said more than five words to each other in QC but we met again at General hospital,Lagos in 2016 at the emergency to see a doctor for different reasons . From then on you became my friend,when I was having PCOS you encouraged me telling me everyday to be strong and I'd conceive and then island maternity in 2020 you continued to be my rock,I  mean a friend I tell deep things and I know not a soul will hear,you trusted me to tell me how you felt sometimes. When I got married I was always chatting you up on WhatsApp to report my husband and you would always say I over reacted,you would make me go back and apologize to him. You were there for me,you were selfless and I may have never told you this but biodun I love you. I will never have a friend like you,that's the truth. You are rare.
I'm sorry I didn't text enough, motherhood overwhelmed me,I'm sorry I wasn't there like you were always there for me,Rest in peace

Rest in love my Smoske

Smoske! I really can't believe I'm writing this. Back then in QC days, we would joke around a lot. I remember when we used to make fun of the Math teacher then who pronounced 'Small Square' as 'Smoske' and then we nicknamed each other that.

Rest in love and power Abi
