Mum, you were a woman like no other. You gave me life, nurtured me, taught me, dressed me, fought for me, held me, shouted at me, kissed and hugged me, and most importantly was always there for my family. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important you were to me. I wish I could see you one more time, walking through the door but I know that is impossible. I know you can feel my tears and you don’t want me to cry but yet my heart is broken because I can’t understand why someone so precious had to die, but I believe God loves you more. I pray that God will give me strength and somehow get me through as I struggle with the headache that came when I lost you.
MUMMY YOU WERE MY MOTHER, MY PRAYER WARRIOR, FRIEND, MY LAUGHTER, MY JOY, MY HAPPINESS, MY GIST PARTNER LATE AT NIGHT, AND MY CONFIDANT. I WILL FOREVER MISS YOU DEARLY AND YOU REMAIN FOREVER IN MY HEART UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN. LOVE YOU ALWAYS MUM AND CONTINUE TO SLEEP PEACEFULLY.
YOUR DAUGHTER

Thank you mummy for making me feel like your own son the first time you saw me in your home. How can I ever forget the anointing oil you pour on my head after prayer whenever Femi and I are traveling back to school in Jos . Your prayers and advise kept us upright till graduation. I will always love you. Adieu mama and rest in the bosom of the lord forever.

THE OYENUGA'S

Death is purely the loss of the physical,The Sun sets,The Moon sets, but they are not gone forever.
Mummy Satellite - as we fondly called her, was a strong, tenacious adorable and beautiful Woman......To Think She's gone with her warm smiles, is quite devastating.
A loving and caring Mother, worthy of emulation....You were a Mother in a Million.
You left a void in the family, amongst in-laws and friends that can never be filled.
We pray as you journey ahead, your Service to your creator and good deeds to humans will speak for you on the judgement day.
Good night Ma - aka 'Mummy Satellite'
The Oyenuga Family, (In-law)

Hmmmmmmmm, o death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory?
Thank God our Lord Jesus Christ has won the Victory for us.
Mummy/Grandma Satellite, my Big sweet Mummy, it pained me that you have to leave us at this time, just 6 months after my Mummy ( Mummy Ondo) left to be with the Lord.
I cherished and will continue to cherish the two months u spent with me doing "omugwo" taking care of my daughter (top-up as u named her)
You are my Mother right from when I was a baby, taking good care of me, till I graduated and even wedded my husband.
You have always been the pillar of support to my Mum and I. Thank you Mummy for the legacy you left behind. Bringing the family together, the love between all your children and us the cousins and family in general.
Mummy, I thank God for your life, you lived a good life and its a well spent life.
Easy going, peace loving ❤ mummy, soft spoken, caring and prayerful mother/grandmother. Always praying for us everyday.

We miss you Mum. We love you but God loves you more.
Adieu my Beautiful and Sweet Mummy/Grandma Satellite.

Love from
Segun, Laotan, Feranmi & Feyisikemi OLAWALE.

A loving mother who took care of her own totally. She welcomed visitors of her own.
She fought and lived strong.
Your legacy will shine forth.
Adieu mummy Tola

Truly a mother from heaven who loved everybody and nothing was too much for her to do.
Always putting others first before herself which made her a special person.
We will miss her very much.
May her soul rest in perfect peace.
Adieu

Grandma, thank you for being one of the best moms in my life and thank you for taking care of the best dad in the whole wide world. I will forever remember your sweet and gentle voice when we talk over the phone which always ends with a prayer. I love you but God loves you more. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.
Your Grandson, Kitan.

You ran the race God set before you.
Now that you have gone the way of all men
We are sad that you are no more here
But we will always celebrate your memory.
You were a mother to us all.
Till we meet again in the Lord’s bosom.

You were my mom, you were full of life, grace and poise. They say a mother gives you life and a mother in law gives you her life and what a life it was. You have shown me much kindness for every second I’ve known you. I remember my medical school days when I visited your office often for one reason or the other, you never made me feel like a bother though you knew why I was there. Such was the kindness you shared. Mom you have led and supported us all to the point at which we are fearless and can stand on our own. Your job here is done but I am sad because I can no longer hear your voice but the wisdom you’ve shared persists and the lessons of life you taught abide with us. Now that you’ve gone to rest may you have eternal peace and sleep,in the bosom of the lord.

Mummy, We commit your soul unto the hands of the Almighty God who blessed us with you. You were a beautiful soul, very relateable and peaceful in every way. You will be dearly missed. The times spent with you on holiday in Tallahassee many years back will always be dear to Bode and I. You are indeed a worthy mum. You always had good advise and insight to tap into, being a new mother myself at that time. We hope to emulate the genuine love you left with us. Rest in perfect peace Mummy. Iya rere, E sun re o.

Mummy you were a great mother, wife, grandmother, sister, auntie and friend . You were always praying for everyone, you always remembered what each and everyone of us was doing and always supported us with prayers and encouragement. If we did any little thing for you, months later you would still be thanking us and praying for us over it. You had kind words and smile for everyone. You cared for and touched a lot of people beyond the family. You have left a huge hole that no one can fill. Mom, I really haven’t processed how we will carry on without you but we must because you have sown so much in us to prepare us for this period of our lives. You’ve gone to rest in the hands of the Lord that you served all your life and now you’re joining Dad to watch over us from heaven. I thank God for your life which was well lived.
We love you so much and will miss you dearly .
Your daughter Yemi

"Death is a graduation. When we're taught all the things we came to teach,learned all the things we came to learn, then we're allowed to graduate."
"The heavy hands of afflictions squeeze us not to destroy our lives,but to bring the best out of us."
The Bible says in Job 23:10...."but he knoweth the way that I take:when he hath tried me,I shall come forth as gold."


People never die as long as they're remembered.....You'll always be remembered ma

As a kid back in the days running around the office complex of college of medicine Unilag, I can only remember you as a soft spoken elderly Mama that would never even spank anyone of us. You would never even yell at us. You were so graceful... May your soul rest in perfect peace Ma. I’m sure you have been received by the angels.

A Tribute To Mrs Grace Arinola Akinjiyan by Princess(Mrs) Esther Udo-Utun.

Mommy, you were a Mother indeed to all of us who knew you.
You were fondly called “Mommy Akinjiyan “ by my children, husband and I.
You were a loving, kindhearted and prayerful mother. You prayed for all of us your children who had close contact with you.
A good, friendly and wonderful neighbor, with smiles on your face anytime one came across you in the neighborhood. You took good care of yourself and never missed your daily morning church services and Sunday services.
You were my pillar of strength when I lost my father, with so much support from you.
We will surely miss you dearly!
We pray that the Angels of God will lead you home to your Creator that you served faithfully.
May you join the hosts of Heaven to sing songs of
praises to God.
Rest in perfect peace Mommy!
May God grant us your children the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
May the Light of God shine perpetually on you.
Adieu MOMMY AKINJIYAN!!!

Your death came to me as a great shock because it wasn’t long that you spoke with my wife. You were our mother in Lagos and each conversation with you ends with prayers and I am going to miss that. I am particularly happy that you lived a good life and you have gone to be with the Lord. May your soul Rest In Peace. Amen
