My mummy my mummy, sisi Arin, Arin e to yi (Arin speaking), glory be to God our heavenly father for a pleasant and fulfilled life you lived.

You were indeed a mother in Israel, you lived your entire life for God reading the word, praying and practically demonstrating the teachings of God to your Husband, children, siblings, extended family, friends and all your loved ones.

You were consistent in prayer and held on to the word of God during difficult challenges, making decisions and interceding on behalf of all your loved ones. You never compromised God for anything, an exemplary life style to follow by all. 

You allowed the light of God shining in you and through you to touch everyone that comes in contact with you.

My mummy my mummy all your support and love shown will never be forgotten, I will forever cherish every moment we spent together.

My mummy my mummy, unique is what you were. Clearly you were indeed a mum in a million (THE BEST). 

You will forever be missed particularly always being the first person to reach out by phone call on all special occasions such as birthday, anniversary etc.

Your last saying while you were on your sick bed; which continues to echo and will forever live with me is "E ma gba adura fun n wa o" (pray for us).

My mummy my mummy, Aya Baba La Sun; I know you are resting peacefully in the Lord.

Forever loved, I miss you dearly.

Sun re (sleep well) till we meet again in the blossom of our Lord in Jesus mighty name.

Mom,
Words cannot describe how I feel about you , loving, prayerful, always joyful, gentle , patient, independent and beautiful.
You are the best mom I could ever have asked for and I’m forever blessed that I had the privilege and honor to call you my mother.
I am grateful that I can hear your voice and prayers in my mind and I will hold on to them dearly. I will always remember the words of wisdom that you have sown in me and I will strive to make you proud.
I love you and I want you to know that you will always be in my heart.
Your loving daughter- Yemi

"Iya ni wura biye biye, ti a ko le fo wo ra..."

Yes Mama, you were priceless, the truest, dearest, more than a mother to me. You were everything, my friend, brother, sister, uncle, aunt and also dad when dad passed away. You waited 23 years with us after dad passed on, and only God knows the inner strength you had to come through with all of us.

When I remember how you stood by me when I had high fever at around 8 or 9 years old in just my shorts after taking a cold shower without drying up and sat on the bed in LUTH with the full A/C on to cool my temperature down and I was shivering and helpless but you sat there with me encouraging and praying for me, I cannot help but shed a tear.

How about the countless birthday celebrations every year till I left for Bolton. (You always made sure all my friends had a good time and was comfortable around the house. You made our house a second home to all). I was only able to return a favour by celebrating your 60th birthday. You did not want to celebrate it because you just lost the love of your life but I surprised you and did it anyway. It was mixed feelings as you were happy and at the same time you missed your hubby. But your friends, brothers, sisters, cousins and children were all there to console you.

You were a precious gift from God, so much beauty, grace, love and patience you possessed. You touched my heart in so many ways, your strength and smile even on dark days made me realise I have an Angel beside me at all times.

Mum, you heard Gods whisper, calling you home, you did not want to leave us, I saw your fight. You loved us so much that you held on tight until Sister Yemi was around you, prayed for you and told you how much we all love you and then your strength was gone and you could no longer hold on. Finally, you gave your hand to God, your maker, and slipped away quietly without telling us goodbye.

I will forever miss you because you have been all I ever needed in my life to become the man that I am today. God gave me the best mum in the world. You taught me to never give up on my dreams but persevere no matter how hard the storms may be and always told me I could tell you anything bothering me. Thank you for the support you gave freely, the prayers, the love and care you showed towards us all. There is no way I can ever pay you back but the plan is to show you that I understand. You are appreciated because whenever I was down, you were always there for me and never left me alone because you cared for me. There are no words that can express how I feel and I appreciate how you raised me and all the extra love that you gave me.

Its so hard to say goodbye to yesterday but yesterday is gone. So today I am thankful for your life well lived. Say hello to Dad, tell him we are in Gods hands and we will be fine.

Continue to rest in peace till we meet again to part no more...

You are a woman with a heart of gold. An Epitome of beauty. You became our mother & father when we lost our parents. You gave us love,care & affection,and your constant monitoring is of great value to us. Your words of advice made us what we are today. Thank you ma for standing by us at that turbulent time. I believe angels in heaven will rejoice at your departure.

Rest on mummy,at the bossom of Christ your Lord till we meet to part no more.

Mummy Grace Arinola Akinjiyan (Yemi ‘Loiye as I nicknamed her - Mother of Goodness) was an exceptional Mother to her own children and their friends.
Her strong faith and gentle yet firmly held beliefs were truly the mark of a devout Christian Mother.
Yei, you welcomed me and mine into your family without reservation. It was always fun having conversations with you in Ondo. You always responded and ended with prayers for us all. Those were truly precious calls.
You are sorely missed but God loves you best. We take solace in the fact that you are resting easy with our Lord having left a solid legacy in your children, their families and those of us who were fortunate to know you.
Wo se o Yemi ‘Loiye. Sun re o.

Mummy you are '"Absent here but present with the Lord".
I am blessed indeed to have had you as my mother.
You were truly Exceptional and Priceless.
Thank you for your love of God, our Dad and each & every one of us.
Thank you for raising me and showing me the way to go.
Thank you for your unwavering prayerful and practical support in all seasons!
Thank you for tirelessly putting us all first; often at great cost to you!

Thank you for "Never giving up, praying without ceasing".
It has been a privilege to be your daughter and learn from you.
Thank you for Everything!

I miss the times we’d share.
I miss your prayers, stories, laughter, WhatsApp posting / prayers, Facebook stories and of course ‘our disagreements’.

I am eternally grateful to God for your life and accomplishments.
Memories of you I will always cherish.
May your legacy live on in all of your children & grandchildren.
Till we meet again.

Mrs. Grace Arinola Akinjiyan ( Mummy Satellite ) was a woman of faith, courage and conviction and I will miss her greatly.
She will be remembered for so many things but her faith stood out. She was a great example of a follower of Christ and prayed at all times in all situations. She never had a Bible far from her. Her faith and conviction were strong and she always had an encouraging word to say to you. She showed immense courage during challenging times and was always available to support her children and grandchildren.

Whenever she visited she never sat around but participated in all home activities. She was a joy to have around the house and would volunteer to do anything. Her usual saying would be “what do we have to do today.” She demonstrated hard work pays-off and was a great example to us.

She treated all her children and grandchildren with respect and was supportive of their activities. She was patient generous and kind not only to us but all our friends. I will miss her smile, her prayers and her presence. I will miss her phone calls. I will miss her encouragement. Although saddened by her passing-on, I know she now rests in glory with our Lord and that gives me great solace.

Rest in the Lord Mummy

I write this tribute on behalf of my Mother, Mrs. Olanike Alabi; my Late Dad- Mr. Alfred Folarin Alabi. We are comforted by the words of this poem...

An Angel whispered,
"Take my hand and
come with me;
your work here is done."

I went away to a place
where there's no tears nor sorrow,
only laughter and smiles.
There will always be a tomorrow....
- Diana Blokzyl

This is a friendship that dates back to the late 70’s, our first friend and neighbors moving in to Satellite Town. Over the years, we grew to be family beyond friends, celebrating all milestones through thick and thin.... Mummy Opposite as I would call her and “Mummy Keee!” As my mum would shout out and your response of “Owi Beee” was sure to follow... that was the affinity that lied between them over 40 odd years plus...

Still in denial and pained at your exit Mummy. You were indeed a rock, a cheerleader and an angel sent from above to take care of me especially in my trying moments in the last few years. I dare say a Godmother to me and more than a friend indeed to my dear mother, Mrs. Olanike Alabi as you stood selflessly by us through our ordeal in recent times.

Your prayers, sincere advice, genuine, unwavered and unconditional love for my mum, dad and myself knew no bounds.

I recall your consoling words when Daddy passed and you said I should take heart as he wanted to pass with me present. Coming from you, it was very assuring. Your wisdom was straight from above.

A woman of very few words but your action spoke more.... I cannot but reference your prayers once again. Genuine and piercing like a two edged sword, touching every bone and marrow, targeted at lifting heavy burdens. I’ll MISS that.

Gosh... February, we still sat together discussing and you consoling me about Daddy. Little did I know what lied ahead. How I feel this “Gbas- Gbos” of pain ... but we can’t question the Almighty. You mean the era of close 4 has finally come to an end. Indeed... life is in phases and we need to make and keep good memories for the future.

You would always rise to the occasion to assist in the little way you can. Ohhh how words fail me to describe how amazing a soul you were.

Introspectively, we seemed to connect on many levels and issues without saying much. You were a breath of fresh air, caring and compassionate to the core. You visited mummy at mine as often as you could despite the strain and the distance.

I remember our last outing together where we went shopping and I insisted that you had to take a matching pair of slippers with mine. You were tired that day and complained about that nagging headache... that headache which we should have paid closer attention to than just a casual medical check.

Very smart and discerning, an encourager to the core. I am constantly reminded by your thoughtful messages, calls and life advice. Keeping a constant eye on daddy for me. I am indeed glad that I got closer to you in last few years Mummy, yours was a pure, selfless and unadulterated love.

Rest in the Almighty’s bosom ... where I am assured that you are. You have left us with wonderful memories of how to live in old age.

Mummy you journeyed through life well and have now highlighted at your stop. We will keep your fond memories in our hearts as we continue life’s journey emulating those attributes you displayed that brought us joy till the time we meet at the Lord’s feet.

Our thoughts and prayers also go to my siblings and the rest of the family and pray that we are all comforted by the Almighty during this period, taking one day at time...


God bless

Mama was so much loved by us all here in Bolton. 
We were saddened by her passing to glory, but grateful to God for long life, blessed family and her commitment to Christ.
Rest on mummy in the bosom of the Lord.
Posted by Agnes Adeleye on April 29, 2021
Dear Mummy, words really failed me at this moment to express exactly how I feel but I thank God for a beautiful life you spent.
I can still remember your beautiful smile, hear your voice and your humility is next to none. We were always happy to have you visit us in Bolton.
Thank God for the opportunity to celebrate your 80th birthday which was full of wonderful memories. I’m still keeping the hair extension you gave me during one of your visits in your memory ma
You are greatly missed Mum but we believe you are in a better place and we shall all meet on the resurrection morning.

Adieu Beloved Mum❤️

My dear aunty, you lived a fulfilled and loving life and I thank God for a life well spent.
The last time we spke, you effortlessly smoothed over some brewing family issues as you were a woman of substance and always worked at uniting the family. And you did so so very well.

You were so accommodating and caring of all. When your big brother,my dad died, you humbly stepped in to his shoes in many respects. Though I was no longer in Nigeria, I do know you were selflessly there for my siblings without question and not expecting anything in return. And I once more thank you posthumously.

As you join your siblings Labanji my dad, uncle Fiayo, aunty Mercy and of course your parents, may you all be united with Our Lord Jesus in joy and peace in heaven where you live for ever and ever.
May God keep you among His people and may you see your Redeemer face to face and enjoy the sight of God forever. Amen.
God bless the whole family you left behind. Adieu aunty; rest in perfect peace.

Ooooh Mummy satelite, we love you but God loves you more. I was so shocked when I heard of the bad news but who are we to question God. I appreciate the fact that Mummy is the archetect of my working in LUTH. I will always love you. Rest in peace.

Oh mommie how I miss you. The awful anguish and grief I have is unlike anything I have ever experienced. No words can express my grief of losing you. Memories of your face, warm smile, large heart and good deeds bring tears to my eyes every minute of the day.
I love you dearly mum.. I am completely heartbroken that you are gone forever, it’s so hard to face reality. Goodbye Iye Loiye.
Posted by Dipo Taiwo on April 28, 2021
Hmmm. Mummy, what a life living, giving and loved. You were always there to give your support in your own little way. It's still difficult for me especially to accept the fact that you are gone but who are we to question God who knows the best for you. You have touched so many lives and got lots of CHILDREN. You were a MOTHER to all. God rest your soul.

Your light has certainly made all of our lives a little brighter. You will be dearly missed. May you rest in eternal peace and may I continue to make you proud.

On that Thursday I saw you enter gboyegas car, to take you to the hospital. We acknowledged each other, with beautiful smiles. I didn't know that would be the last I will see of you. You were a mother in a million. Gentle, quiet, but with disipline. Rest well mum.
Posted by Grace Adegoke on April 27, 2021
Mummy was full of love and care for all, she called to thank every single person that attended her 80th birthday in 2019, you will be greatly missed ma, we love you but God loves you more, continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Posted by Bim Akinjiyan on April 27, 2021
Mum, it's so hard to believe you are gone. Every time I summon the courage to write, only tears flowed...
But finally even in the midst of the tears, this must be done.
Thank you for the gift your life brought to us and especially the gift of your son to me. Your love for God and the things of God was worthy of emulation. You sowed love and prayers into our lives as your children and everyone that surrounds you. Rising up early in the morning to commune with God was your passion. You not only went the extra mile for me on several occasions, you did likewise for my siblings and family. I only have to call and you were always there to answer.
You saw the best in every situation, declaring God's way will prevail. You made even the most insignificant things memorable. Your impact in the life of many is unquestionably remarkable. You never took your health and well being for granted, however the all knowing God has called you home at his time. We may not see you again, but we will always cherish the memories we had with you and let it live on. Love you mum, sleep in peace.

Dearest Mummy,

You always embraced us, encouraged us, supported us, celebrated us and loved us in a way that made us feel so special. As I have grown older I have grown to admire your character, your spirit and your nature in a new light. I marvel at the impact that it has had across generations, and the legacy it has bought forth. Although we no longer hear your voice physically,the loving words you have deposited in our hearts over the years will never depart. God bless you Mummy and rest in perfect peace. Thank you for your love and for being a shining example to us all.

Ive tried to write this down for two weeks now, but each time I tried, tears overwhelmed me.
Everyone that has ever crossed my path knew I had many mothers. But lately, death took away two in 6months. On the 28th of March, 2021, I lost my Big Mum, Mummy Satellite as she was fondly called amongst we her nephews. She was a mother like no other. As a boy, I remembered she took me as her Son when it seems I needed a proper family, or let me say a stable home. She would take me to her office as a boy so I wouldn't be left alone at home. I will never forget the day I clocked 21, before I woke up that morning, mummy had already prepared a full cooler of rice for me and my friends. That was when I had to start inviting friends that I'm having a birthday party. Around you ma, I lacked nothing, Love, Prayers, and ofcos you thought me to always put God first in all. I'm so sorry I couldn't do much as a son for you ma, but I'm glad I was with you till the very End. "You all should continue to Pray" were your last words ma. 
Words cant Express how much I will miss you ma, till forever I will always remember your love for me ma.
Do Rest in the Bossom of the Lord mummy.
Your Baby of the house, Adegboyega.

Grandma, you were an inspiration, full of prayer and life, and one of the most influential people in my life. In times of need, you were always there to provide me with great wisdom and compassion. In times of celebration, you made sure you were right there with us celebrating any way you could. The first birthday call, no matter the time difference, you always made sure we felt loved and cared for. That was the kindness you radiated. While I haven't fully processed you are not here with us anymore, I will remember the times when it was just the two of us whether it was making coconut candy together or me teaching you how to use your email. While these moments may seem mundane to others, these moments are incredibly special to me and times that I will cherish forever. I will carry with me all the lessons I have learned from you and find comfort that you are in peace with the Lord. I will miss you everyday. I love you, Temi.

Tribute to late Mrs G. A. Akinjiyan
Life is a journey. As you move on in life, you impart some people positively or negatively, leaving a memory which could be pleasant or otherwise.
Late Mrs Akinjiyan was a quiet achiever with a heart of gold. She was an accomplished accountant at the College of Medicine, idiaraba. Our path crossed through our children who were attending the staff school in the 80's. Many times, she would assist me to take my children to school and back to Satellite whenever I had challenges with my car. She was very helpful on many of such occasions because her baby, Mr Shola Akinjiyan was also attending the same school. She was always there for us. Later, she joined us at St. John Anglican church from Ikate Surulere and became a member of hope society which was also my Society in the church. She contributed financially and made great impart toward the growth of the society. She was an easy going and unassuming lady embedded in humility towards every member of the society.
Mama, I want to thank you for extending your kindness and understanding in those years of our struggle. These memories would always live with me and my family. Rest in the bossom of your creator as you join the saint triumphant to sing to the Lord. Goodnight Mama. Rest in Peace.

Mrs V. O. Olaoke JP.

My mom, my mother, my supporter, my champion, my prayer warrior, always in my corner in all things . Always encouraging to us all. You stood by us in good times and especially during challenging times. Your prayers never ceased. You have gone to be with the Lord. With a broken heart, I thank God for your life. I thank God that you got to see your children and grandchildren do well in life. I thank God that you got to celebrate many wonderful milestones with us. I thank God that we got to celebrate great milestones with you as well. I thank God that you had a great life.
Mom you’ve left a huge gap in our lives and you will be greatly missed but forever in our hearts. We love you so much .

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.

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'

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.

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

My mummy my mummy, sisi Arin, Arin e to yi (Arin speaking), glory be to God our heavenly father for a pleasant and fulfilled life you lived.

You were indeed a mother in Israel, you lived your entire life for God reading the word, praying and practically demonstrating the teachings of God to your Husband, children, siblings, extended family, friends and all your loved ones.

You were consistent in prayer and held on to the word of God during difficult challenges, making decisions and interceding on behalf of all your loved ones. You never compromised God for anything, an exemplary life style to follow by all. 

You allowed the light of God shining in you and through you to touch everyone that comes in contact with you.

My mummy my mummy all your support and love shown will never be forgotten, I will forever cherish every moment we spent together.

My mummy my mummy, unique is what you were. Clearly you were indeed a mum in a million (THE BEST). 

You will forever be missed particularly always being the first person to reach out by phone call on all special occasions such as birthday, anniversary etc.

Your last saying while you were on your sick bed; which continues to echo and will forever live with me is "E ma gba adura fun n wa o" (pray for us).

My mummy my mummy, Aya Baba La Sun; I know you are resting peacefully in the Lord.

Forever loved, I miss you dearly.

Sun re (sleep well) till we meet again in the blossom of our Lord in Jesus mighty name.

Mom,
Words cannot describe how I feel about you , loving, prayerful, always joyful, gentle , patient, independent and beautiful.
You are the best mom I could ever have asked for and I’m forever blessed that I had the privilege and honor to call you my mother.
I am grateful that I can hear your voice and prayers in my mind and I will hold on to them dearly. I will always remember the words of wisdom that you have sown in me and I will strive to make you proud.
I love you and I want you to know that you will always be in my heart.
Your loving daughter- Yemi

"Iya ni wura biye biye, ti a ko le fo wo ra..."

Yes Mama, you were priceless, the truest, dearest, more than a mother to me. You were everything, my friend, brother, sister, uncle, aunt and also dad when dad passed away. You waited 23 years with us after dad passed on, and only God knows the inner strength you had to come through with all of us.

When I remember how you stood by me when I had high fever at around 8 or 9 years old in just my shorts after taking a cold shower without drying up and sat on the bed in LUTH with the full A/C on to cool my temperature down and I was shivering and helpless but you sat there with me encouraging and praying for me, I cannot help but shed a tear.

How about the countless birthday celebrations every year till I left for Bolton. (You always made sure all my friends had a good time and was comfortable around the house. You made our house a second home to all). I was only able to return a favour by celebrating your 60th birthday. You did not want to celebrate it because you just lost the love of your life but I surprised you and did it anyway. It was mixed feelings as you were happy and at the same time you missed your hubby. But your friends, brothers, sisters, cousins and children were all there to console you.

You were a precious gift from God, so much beauty, grace, love and patience you possessed. You touched my heart in so many ways, your strength and smile even on dark days made me realise I have an Angel beside me at all times.

Mum, you heard Gods whisper, calling you home, you did not want to leave us, I saw your fight. You loved us so much that you held on tight until Sister Yemi was around you, prayed for you and told you how much we all love you and then your strength was gone and you could no longer hold on. Finally, you gave your hand to God, your maker, and slipped away quietly without telling us goodbye.

I will forever miss you because you have been all I ever needed in my life to become the man that I am today. God gave me the best mum in the world. You taught me to never give up on my dreams but persevere no matter how hard the storms may be and always told me I could tell you anything bothering me. Thank you for the support you gave freely, the prayers, the love and care you showed towards us all. There is no way I can ever pay you back but the plan is to show you that I understand. You are appreciated because whenever I was down, you were always there for me and never left me alone because you cared for me. There are no words that can express how I feel and I appreciate how you raised me and all the extra love that you gave me.

Its so hard to say goodbye to yesterday but yesterday is gone. So today I am thankful for your life well lived. Say hello to Dad, tell him we are in Gods hands and we will be fine.

Continue to rest in peace till we meet again to part no more...
