Happy Birthday Abi.

I don’t think of you as gone away your journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one.

I just think of you as resting
from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.

Think how you must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.

And think of you as living in the hearts of those you touched for nothing loved is ever lost and you were loved so much.

             Thank You

Thank you for the great tributes that Hakkunde viewers have left. And thank you in advance for all viewers who may leave a tribute in future. God bless you all.

It is truly comforting that our sister’s memory lives on through this film.

I just finished watching the movie Hakkunde and i saw its was in your memory so i thought to check out your and I landed on this page I read the first Tribute I saw. I do not know you or your family but one thing i sure know is that you are Loved and missed by your family. till we meet again. I cant believe I'm close to crying right now.

At the end of the movie Hakkunde there is a tribute to you and I decided to look your name up. Rest in peace and know you are well loved and missed. I didn't know you, but by looking at the beautiful photos and reading the tributes your loved ones have left over the years feel like I know you, rest in the arms of the Lord until it's time to come for us left here on earth. The music your friends and family put together is moving and speaks of how much you are loved and missed.
Posted by Temi Koleowo on March 30, 2020
Four years can't wipe away the memories of good people. It feels like you went on a journey to return sometime soon.

At my birthday party this year, I missed you. You are one of the constants at every major milestone I celebrate. You were there 10 years ago as always. As I looked around the faces of family and friends present, I wish your face was there too. It's still a hard pill to swallow that we won't see you anymore.

I wish I could celebrate you for your dedication to help others one more time.  Even in your absence you're been celebrated in Hakkunde. Well done my friend.

I wish there were more moments, more memories and more good times to remember you by. Sleep well my friend.

Continue to RIP...

God will continue to comfort the family you left behind.

I just watched the movie Hakkunde. I saw your name come up and decided to google your name.
I may not have known you here on earth but there surely will be a time we will meet to part no more...

Sleep on at the bosom of your Lord and Maker

Just finished watching a very interesting film titled "HAKKUNDE" that was in your memory and that of veteran actress mummy Taiwo Ajayi and I told myself I know Taiwo Ajayi but I do not know you and immediately I went to google and I read a lot. It's just a pity cos most times good heart don't last but God knows best. May your soul continue to rest in peace and may the good Lord continually uphold the family.

Dear Abimbola,
A few days ago, you would have turned 51. I miss the chats and the catching up stories about life and common friends we would have surely done again around this time again. We all love and miss you down here, but father God loves you more.
We are however comforted by smiling thoughts, memories, good reports and talks of whom you were . You have surely made it home safe and secured in our savior’s everlasting arms Abim.
With smiley thoughts of whom you were, the lives you built and touched before leaving the earth here, you remain in our hearts with pleasant memories.
Posted by Tola Babalola on May 30, 2018
Dear Abi, today is your 2nd birthday in heaven and I am sure there is a heavenly celebration going on. I celebrate you here on earth today - wishing you were here.

Dear Abi
Another year has passed...
Seems like yesterday...
Words cannot describe the pain I have been through or still going through. But - through it all - I have received strength and comfort in the word of God AND in the knowing that you are fellowshipping with the saints in heaven, and you are no longer in pain. Continue to rest in peace dear sister.

You will be Forever missed and never forgotten.
Love Always.

Sis Abi, another year without you here. I just miss you. You were selfless, extremely kind hearted and a great listener. I really miss you Sis. Continue to rest in Peace. Love always, Buki
Posted by Kolawole Agboola on March 30, 2018
I was thinking about you a few days ago Abi, I guess that's just proof that you're an eternal being. You rest here yes but are alive in Christ and with Christ. Keep having fun up in heaven even though we miss you over here.
Posted by T Koleowo on March 30, 2018
Dear Abimbola.
I remember vividly when you used to tell us off for calling you Bimbo. You forced us to get used to calling you Abi and it stuck really well
What a woman you were to leave strong memories in our hearts. Time flies, but the memories of good friends never fades. Keep resting in God's arms.
Posted by Lola Ogungbesan on March 30, 2018
Dear Abi,

2 years have passed already, yet it seems like yesterday. It's so hard trying to adjust to life without you. You are missed everyday, little things bring back memories, but you live on in our hearts. Continue to rest in peace dear friend. Love always.

Adieu my good friend & Sister-in-Christ, Bimbola (Abi).

I googled your name yesterday evening & was shocked to see this page.

Thanks for the cute Green winter coat you bought me in 1995 (I think!) & thanks also for helping me with my CV.

May the Lord keep your siblings in perfect peace.

Dear Abim,

This day yearly, was always a special day on my mind Abim. Not because I was so good with remembering birthdays, but yours was prime because, how special you treated others, always made it so difficult not to remember returning your gestures.

Many have missed you on this side of our galaxy, Abims, but we rest our hearts in the thoughts of whom your keeper is !! Jesus Christ, whom we aaalll long to see at the end of our missions as well .

Today marks the 50th year of the day this planet experienced your existence. Your passing through, has certainly made this world a better place with the rich and pleasant memories you've left many with.

Whom you were, remains ever fresh on our minds Abimbola. Remain joyfully rested in Jesus' bosom, dear sweet one.

Happy Birthday in absentia

Dear Abi, remembering you (as if a day has passed without me thinking of you) on what would have been your 50th birthday.

Today was a day you were looking forward to as you knew you had a lot to thank God for. Feeling sad is not what you would want for your family and friends. I can hear your voice saying 'guys what's the plan?" So the plan is to rejoice that you are in a better place and to remember your legacy - a kind heart, tenacious spirit, prayer warrior, hard working, always setting goals in order to press forward, fun loving and for me the most loyal friend.

Happy 50th Birthday Abi, I miss you dearly.
Posted by Roxane Ajao on May 30, 2017
Aunty Abi, You are truly missed. I continually think of you and the great legacy and fond memories that you have left behind with us. Honestly, your departure has left a big mark on my life. I want to be a better person for everyone that encounters me everyday. I wonder how I will be remembered or spoken of. You are truly a great and loving sister. I love you.
Posted by T Koleowo on May 30, 2017
Dear Abimbola,

We take comfort in the fact that God loves you more. One year on and I fondly remember your smile and your kind personality. May your sweet memories bring comfort to everyone that holds you dear. Continue to rest in the Lord.
Posted by Tola Babalola on April 22, 2017
Dear Sister, Dear Abi, no day has passed this past year without me thinking about you...
You are missed dearly and deeply.
I continue to take comfort in the fact that you are no longer in pain, and you are in the presence of the Most High rejoicing daily with other heavenly host - and how happy you are right now
Love Always xxx

Abimbola, it is already a year that you left us but your smile and warmth will never leave us. I will cherish you forever. Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord.

I can't believe it's been a year since our lovely sister passed away.
You will forever remain in our hearts, a beautiful memory, dearer than gold whose worth can never be told. We miss you. Tosin and Tosin

Dear Abi, Not a day has passed since the 30th of March that i have not thought about you. Knowing you are gone hasn't gotten any easier as there are constant reminders of the gap you have left in my heart. Today would have been your 49th birthday and I miss you dearly. I have to keep reminding myself you are in a better place. Your life and friendship meant so much to me and I will never forget you.

I had the honour of working on Abi 's team at the London 2012 Olympics, and we stayed in touch for a while after.

I saw on facebook it was her birthday today and went to leave my wishes, only to get a shock. I am devastatated to hear that the woman with the huge smile and infectious laugh that made my Olympic experience all the more special has left us at such a young age.

Thank you for the memories Abi, happy birthday and rest in peace. Fiona xx

Dearest Abi,
It's really hard to express in words what I really have to say, your sudden departure is still a shock to me. I am slowly coming to terms with the news. I am deeply sad, we lost contact and was not aware of your passing until recently. It also hurts, as I was not there to see you or say good bye. But I am certain God loves you more and you are in a better place resting. You fought the good fight of faith. I treasure our memories from all our travels and you being there at my wedding. You will be deeply missed..Adieu rest in peace my dear. Love always .....Bola
Posted by Roxane Ajao on April 26, 2016
Aunty Abi.

I am lost for words. As each day passes, I still replay the news in my head. I glad that are a lover of Christ. You had always showed me sisterly love, and gave me sound advise too. You showed me the meaning of kindness, humility, and generosity. I miss you fondly. I absolutely regret not coming to visit you as I had planned, I thought there was still lots of time. I am impacted by your beautiful life and more determined to make Heaven. You are missed greatly. Rest well in eternal peace. Till we meet again.

Dear Sis Abi,

It was only yesterday I could truly accept and come to terms with the fact that you are gone and with us no more. We have lost a beautiful, gentle, kind and warming soul; but Heaven has welcomed the angel that you are. Even in adversity, you were so brave and you assured me with your smile that all was well; you showed true faith.

I weep for your passing but more importantly, i'm thankful and grateful to God still; for the rare opportunity he gave you to make everything right and prepare yourself for your sojourn to Heaven.

I wish I had called you more even though you told me you were getting better, I wish we had the chance to travel to Dublin together as we had discussed. I will miss your beautiful smile, your words of encouragement and your support.

Thank you for being You! Thank you for being a gift to all who knew you. My ultimate goal remains making heaven, so I can meet with you again on the other side, radiant and dazzling at the feet of our Lord Jesus.

Love you loads,

Tumi xoxo
Posted by Imisi A on April 22, 2016
Abi, I still cannot believe that I wouldn't get to see the smile...you were always so calm and touched a lot of lives. Always willing to help and be of service...I still remember the GH days. I pray that the Lord completely overwhelms the family and friends you left behind. You will always be remembered.

Happy Birthday Abi.

I don’t think of you as gone away your journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one.

I just think of you as resting
from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.

Think how you must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.

And think of you as living in the hearts of those you touched for nothing loved is ever lost and you were loved so much.
