I have taken my time to write this because of the pain and tears this brings to me.
.
My dearest aunty Nike, your passing and all the events afterwards was one of the first big blows of death I experienced and is still etched deep in my heart. I miss you aunty Nike, I really do.
.
You were like a best friend although you were my aunty. I have so many memories of the big cards you got on our birthdays, the cakes, gifts, the weekends we spent with you at Gbagada and then you travelled.
.
I don't remember much of the day you travelled but I know we came to Gbagada to see you off but they didn't wake us (the children) up in the morning when you were leaving... And I never saw you again. I have tried not to relive that experience as it hurts me so much.
.
But you continued to keep in touch, throughout my secondary school days, my journey into French and you were already making plans for me to come to the US to further my student but Death!!!!
.
Haaaaaaa, I miss you aunty... A lot has happened and I can't wait to see you again. I know your lovely Adeoluwa, Tomi and Iyin are fine because God would never leave nor forsake them.
.
Till we meet again. Atinuke

Hmmmmm! Death did not give me the opportunity to meet you in person, but each time i speak with you on the phone shows that you are loving, kindhearted and generous. We love you but God loves you best. Continue to rest in the bossom of our Lord Jesus christ.

I don’t even know where to begin because no words can ever describe what you meant to me. When I came to the job you embraced me and took me in as one of your girls…As I type I can hear you calling Amanda and I “your girls”. We shared so much in that back office…from work advice, to school, to personal…Bola you were there! From time to time I still read the words you wrote in the book and card you gave me for graduation. I can only imagine what things would be like if you were still here with us. You would be proud of how your ILA girls are doing because your wisdom has been etched in us and we’ve become such strong women and that’s in part thanks to you. I love you Bola always and forever. You will always be missed…until we meet again!

Bola B, my favorite girl! One of the strongest woman I know. How much is miss you. I cannot express how much you left an imprint in my heart, you were not just a co-worker but more like a second mother and as I sit here and type this tribute to you it has bought tears to my eyes. Even on your last days, you remained strong and continued to console everyone around you. No matter how many years has come and gone, you will always have a place in my heart. Love you Always, My Bola B.

My darling sister, Bolarinwa Oyenike....I still cannot believe that it's already 10 years you left us. Hmmm....it was very painful to let you go. I cherish our last moments together during my visit. I never knew the tight hug you gave me at the airport that day was the final goodbye...I thank God for your life and how you have contributed to my successes in life. I still love you and striving to make it also to heaven so that I can see you again. I pray that God will continue to be with your children and they will be successful. We love you and miss you so much...Sleep on Big Sister till resurrection day...Greet Daddy for me

I have so many things I want to say but it's trapped within me. So many gists I would have given you but I can't.

I remember how numb I was for 2 weeks after hearing that you passed .

It was tough aunty, it still is.

Bolarinwa Oyenike Samuel-Ojo (nee Oyeyemi), Dolcee (your sweet niece) loves you and misses you so bad

I'll cherish our memories together and the massive cards you always gave us on our birthdays.

Love always,
Dolcee

10 years just like yesterday
Bolarinwa Oyenike Samuel-Ojo nee Oyeyemi. We cannot forget your Ever-smiling face, cheerful heart and Spirit of love and care over everyone you met in the shores of life. You were a caring mother, loving sister to us all and a great servant of God. A woman of faith and hope - ever trusting God even in the face of death. We will forever remember you. Death snatched you off us but you are in the best place free from pains and torture. God will keep your children and make them great. NikeMi, though you are gone you've left a godly legacy. Continue to rest till the trumpet sounds and we join you to be together forever. Goodnight.
