I can't forget my interaction with her at Domestic operations where she made an indelible impact on me. She was ever ready to learn and work.

"The most heartfelt event of my life this year was the death of my aunt in August. She was a wonderful jewel with a kind, open heart, lover of God infact, a God Addict..Selfless in her works and chores, Extremely hardworking and generous, Beautiful and sweet to behold...memories of how i move around campus (OAU) with her like my mum *smiles* I was proud of her as my aunt..she'll always talk to me in the midst of her colleagues like a baby, she kept hammering MBA program in my ears...not to talk of how she takes care of us when we meet in RCCG camp during either conventions or congresses like she was paid to do it #veryselfless. Will never forget my aunt, she was a very special person to me. She was only 49 when she died.
Aunty B! you may be gone but you’re certainly not forgotten. Not by any of us. May your gentle soul Rest in Perfect Peace."

You were a fun loving, amiable lady with integrity and self worth. Now that i think about it, am not sure i ever saw you get angry...Am still in denial about your passing but I know that God in his infinite mercies has you all wrapped up in his bosom. Rest in peace with the Lord, my dearest friend- Abosed.O- You indeed would be continually loved and in our hearts forever. God bring peace and comfort to your family you left behind. They will be ok."

Whoever is with her can't be skinny. Beautiful and kind soul, giver to the core. I still can't absorb this totally...I feel like at some point someone would tell me it's all a prank. But my consolation is, you lived a good life and your memories which are wonderful would live forever in our hearts. I love you very much Mummy...
With all the love in the world...

"Words fail me everyday i opened this page to write. Hmmmm,so you are truly gone. I met you through your daughter and you  treated me as if im your sister and close pal. You dished my food with Ope's food on many occasion during the period she had her Industrial Attachment in our company then. We gisted on phone many attimes and we talk as friends; how are the mighty fallen.

You are mother, a workaholic who gave all her best to her children.

I remembered i and my husband spoke with you on the phone weeks before you left us, i never knew it was our last conversation. In your usual manner, you were just smiling all through our discussion(Insurance Policy).

I have so many  things to say but words again  failed me. I believe in miracles, please wake up and tell me is April fool. Ope, Seni, Adeolu and all of us need you. All those plans needs your attention.

It is well."

"Mummy Okusaga, it is sad you are gone when your services are really needed. Your love, sacrificial giving, passion for souls and your smiles will linger for long in our memories. Increase Parish (RCCG) will never forget your labour of love. You were always there especially for our trips to various Mission Fields in which you were the Head. The last time we went to Ishagira Mission field, you were giving us gist, snacks and it was a lovely trip. You would say Pastor Agunloye take my phone and record the going-ons. I sincerely miss you. When we visited you at home during your final days, we shook hands despite your illness and you held my hand firmly and tears started rolling from my eyes. I can say so many things about you ma. I just miss you. Continue to rest in the bossom of your Lord"

Had heard so much about your good self n a great personality that you were. You left too soon but obviously you left your foot prints in the sand of time. REST IN THE BOSOM OF GOD."

"Although mere words cannot express the depth of loss we all feel. Come Ebunoluwa, Opeoluwa and Adeoluwa, God knows your pains. Though your Mum's gone, but her soul remains. Her smile is gone forever and her hand you cannot touch anymore, you cannot see her but her memory's there and is your keepsake. God gave It to you so don't despairs. Her time on earth was through. She completed the task she was born to do. She did it so well that God took her home to walk the streets where angels roam. I know she was special and we all miss her. The pain seems far too great. Tears wash away the pain, but it can't remove the love. We want to hold on and not let go, but God said it's her last bus stop. We love her but God loves her more.
Today, we give thanks for the lives we chance to share. No matter if they're short or long.  Rest in Perfect Peace Mrs Abosede Oluyemisi Okusaga."

"Definitely not you!!! The zest for life, agility, discipline, nurture was amazing. Never a dull moment, and anyone who met you was blessed by you.
I remember the command to watch "parents trap" in order to reconcile the parents and "eat now or get passed over", the "ma ja e le - you will enter bus o", on going to school or wherever, the ushering things.

The tears flow, but the smile and laughter, and lessons remain at the memories.
Blessed soul, death has done it worst but I'm glad there's life on the other side.
Adieu...till we meet again"

my hands tremble as I look for the words that can express the love I have for you and at the same time tell you how much pain I'm going through. I take solace in the fact that you lived an exceptional life, never a dull moment with you. when I was in need, you were there, when I wasn't, you were still there and I will forever love and remember you for that.

Though very hard, very hard indeed, the time has come to say goodbye. I wish you peace and eternal rest with the Lord who called you home. Love you always mummy!"

You were all anyone could think of a good woman. I wish i could tell you i'm not ready to let you go,but you've already departed,and my heart is feeling so low. I miss that little twinkle that used to light up your eyes.and i miss the sound of your voice,your laughter and your sighs.

"Time they say is the most precious commodity, once it passes, it is lost forever.If only we knew it would all end like this ,we would have loved  more, talked more and not fight at all. We were more than colleagues, you were my sister and  friend despite the age difference. I cannot say that we had a perfect relationship, we had our fights which we got settled anyway. I recall you hugged  me and was close to tears the last time we had our usual reconciliation talks.

Your death has made me reevaluate my life and I think, "all is vanity". You have drawn the curtains, and bid this wicked world goodbye never to return. I remember our conversation few weeks before you left us. You were not the Okusaga I used to know, the fighting spirit that you were known for was no longer there. You were quiet and reserved ,not ready to say much, despite several attempts made to cheer you up. You later told Mrs Oseni that "aanu mi nse Funmi" because I was always at your desk anytime I saw you in those moods. I remember you telling me that you were happy that your kids are doing well and that Adeolu would soon graduate.You spoke about dying and your plans for your children. You were such a wonderful mother to them.

I never wished this day will come but the Lord has a better plan for you Bokus. All the pains and suffering has ended, now you are in the bossom of our Almighty where happiness and everlasting joy reigns . The Lord almighty will comfort your family, they will smile again knowing you have gone to rest.

This tribute was added by Kingsley Bello on 11th August 2014

"It's still hard for me to believe...but it is true that you are gone to a place of rest forever. You have received eternal rest to your toils, no more pain, no more sorrow. Your sudden departure remains painful. Memories of great times we had together won't stop flashing. You were concerned about me and I can't forget those words of encouragement. I pray for deep comfort for your family. I still remember your excitement about your children each time we talk about them. Now, the twine that linked us together is severed...You'll be dearly missed."

Always there, touching lives, putting smiles in people's faces. You will forever be remembered. It's so painful to miss you, but God knows best. Rest peacefully in the bosom of the Lord. The LAMATA family will surely find it difficult to have someone fill your caring gap."

"Iya Gaga, no doubt you will be greatly missed! You radiated glows and smiles, even in your anger your smiles and radiance could be felt. You were hardworking, interesting and readily available to help. Its sad to know that you have alighted at your final bus stop in your journey of life attesting to "..For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die;..." (Eccl 3: 1-2). In your own humble way, you came, you worked and you achieved. I pray God's indefinable mercy will speak in time of judgement, and also grant the families friends and colleagues you left behind the fortitude to bear the lost.
Adieu, Abosede Oluyemisi Okusaga."

"“Iya Etoooooooo!”……. I would call her…… “Audie kenke!”......... She would respond…….. and on and on that way we would be passing compliments at each other.

Mrs Okusaga was an embodiment of hard work, happiness and eloquence. She was outspoken and very blunt, she never minced words in expressing her views on a subject matter no matter whose ox is gored.
We disagreed sometimes on issues based on principles especially when it involves official duties, we would shout, scream and ignore each other but yet, we would settle shortly after that andthen laugh over it again and move on.

Looking at her from a distance, you are likely to mistake her for wicked fellow but trust me, she was very caring and she couldn’t stand someone suffer while she could help.
She had her own weaknesses like we all do; she would shout and talk at you sometimes so much that you would be pissed off but that’s her nature, she bore no serious grudges with people. This was evident in the fact that she would make sure she reconciled with you as soon as possible.

She was at my 50th birthday with her son in January this year and I jokingly told her, we were all waiting for her own 50th birthday come October. Little did I know that day would never come in her lifetime!

Haaaa! Iya Etoooooooooo!!!......So, we will never get to meet you again in life! You shouldn’t have allowed us to meet you in the first place then because you have now left a pain in our hearts.

THIS IS ONE DEATH TOO MANY!!!.....“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”

Well, what can we do? We take solace in the fact that you lived a much fulfilled life and left your footprints in the sands of time. We pray that God would overlook your sins and grant you eternal rest in His bosom.

REST IN PERFECT PEACE “IYA ETO”, TILL WE MEET TO PART NO MORE IN ETERNITY…    You shall forever remain in my memory!

“A o pade leti oodooo
Odo didan odo didan na
Pelu awon mimo leba oodooooo
To nsan leba ite re e…..”

Hmmmmnnnnnn!!! This life is very transient. A lesson for us some of us who wish to learn!...."

"Words fail me.........Rest on in God's eternal presence"

"Looking at your pics I can hardly believe you are no longer among us.
But as it were, It will be done on me when after some times I can't find you on your sit as if when you travelled out of the country, but would everybody have lied about your passing onto the Most High God who LOVED you more than any other person.
I pray God will over look whatever your misdeed is and have you in his bosom where we shall meet again as one in CHRIST forever. As the Yoruba song goes thus;
''ABOSEDE aya OKUSAGA we all missed you. Gone too soon....

"People die, memories don't, sometimes our loved ones are taken away from us so suddenly we never get the chance to tell them how we really felt. Mrs Okus....ur space in my heart will take a very long time before it can be filled. am short of words than to say GOODNIGHT & till we meet again at GODS bossom."

"I am not one for public display of emotions, but when I read of your passing I screamed in a packed room of people. I am still in shock and prone to tears anytime i think of you. I once wrote on your Facebook wall, under a very lovely picture of you, that you were a beautiful person inside and out. That was no flattery, I truly meant it. Mrs O, as I fondly called you, I will miss you beyond words, but I find solace in the knowledge that you now rest in the bosom of your heavenly Father, whom you loved so much. I pray that the Lord will grant your family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Rest on my sister, till we meet to part no more."

"It’s hard to imagine that one of ours is no more. When you see/hear obituaries in the newspapers, you feel a tinge of sadness, but it’s nothing compared to when the departed is a known person to you – a colleague!

Mrs Okusaga personally reminds me of my biological mother. Her middle name is my mum’s first name, and their behaviour, the way they scold and love you equally, is part of the things that drew me towards her. 'Iya Gags' always had a way of sorting things out- that was her job, and that was her way of life. You cannot have come into LAMATA and not have had an encounter with the late great Mrs Okusaga – it’s impossible.

Is it the smile, is it the pet names you had for most of us (Audi-ken ke; a-bu-meh; OJ-spesial; Larry Kay; Toppy re; Haji Kafaru; and many more!) You were loved by many, but the good Lord whom you served, loves you more.

Goodnight… Forever!"

"A great Tribute to an Awesome sister and Mother. Her life has been worthwhile to us in the LAMATA Family and we are proud that she has left  wonderful Memories that will be carried on for ever. its only the  body that goes, not the person.
We Thank God for his mercies and the life you lived. RIP!!!"

"If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We would pray to God with all our hearts
For a yesterday and you.
A thousand words can’t bring you back,
We know, because we tried;
And neither will a million tears,
We know, because we cried.
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too.
But we never wanted memories,
We only wanted you.
Rest In Perfect Peace Ma"

"One thing that strikes me about her is the fact that she totally disagrees with you,one minute and the next minute she is playing and smiling with you.Such a rare spirit of forgiveness is hers.
She was a true african mother(she has a way of making one feel at home),an organizer per-excellent(iya eto ooooo)

Bless your heart mama okus"

"I dearly missed you Mrs. Okusaga, though my last contact with you was a personal deep prayer session , however, there is an assurance that your soul was prepared for eternity. We can t question our creator, it is humanly painful that you are gone but gracious that you ve departed from this transient,wicked and trouble world. Enjoy at the bosom of your father as the spirit of Jesus Christ continually pray for your family, children and loved ones. Rest in Peace, Mrs Abosede Okusaga ""."

"Everyday many birds will fly,
And each of them carry the warmth of your graceful smile
which gives us the strength to carry on in life.

Mrs Okusaga, now you have your own wings,
So fly free. fly free with the birds,
We will always know which bird is you.

Rest In Peace"

"Good MoRINN...she always burst out early almost every other morning supported with radiant smile that get everyone on her wing smiling. If anything, her smile is infectious and her candor cannot be pushed aside. When she's convinced of her opinion, she airs it without arrogance. Iya eto, Iya gaga, Bokus, those were some of the names we her colleagues called her by. Whenever I wanted anything all I needed do was just smile and she would ask, Emmy what do you want. She was friend to all and enemy to non.

The news of her passing on to glory still feels like a dream, a dream we wish will never come to pass!! Yes, she's gone to rest, gone to be celebrated and not mourn!! She lived well, and touched lives in her own way. Everyone has something good to say about her. All I see is her smile...

Sleep and Rest in the bossom of your creator. We take solace in the fact that you are in a better place away from the worries and troubles of this world. You will sure be missed. The memories you created live on. Life looks so funny...we can never understand it even as we continue to try...

Adieu Iya eto, Adieu Bokus! Adieu iya gaga! Rest...In...Peace"

"My dear Bose, You were like a candle in the wind. You came, you left  good impression on the people you met. I wish I knew that it was the last time I will say good bye to you that evening we were cracking jokes on the stairways of our office. Am sure God knows best. I will surely miss you. May the Lord grant you eternal rest amen. Adieu"

"Mrs Okusaga was a colleague but more importantly she was my friend. I always called her "Bokus" - her bbm name and jokingly said that she was always on a "see food diet" She sees food and she must eat; whenever I said that she always showered me with her radiant smile and genuine joy in what I said. She was my friend and I miss her so much. Miss her laugh, her kind words of support, her lovely smile and kind heart. I miss my friend Mrs Abosede Okusaga. Rest In Peace my dear friend."
