My Grandmother's Legacy

Shared by Jon Babayode on May 6, 2021
My grandmother was an amazing woman. She lived 95 wonderful years, full of joy, passion, and love. As the namesake of her late husband, my grandfather, my grandmother and I had a very special relationship. She would sometimes call me "Uncle Jo", and I would playfully respond "Grandma C,". I loved her so much and will forever treasure the time we spent together. The memories she has left me with will shape the person I am becoming, and will become in the future. The way she treated people with dignity, respect, kindness, and patience is something I would like to emulate in my own life. Grandma was a teacher even late in life, as the lessons she taught myself and countless others about life, education, and about a healthy relationship with God will remain even though she is no longer physically with us. For me, this is not a goodbye, but a see you later, so see you later Grandma. Ka sun re oh!

To a special Mom

Shared by Lola Adeniyi on May 4, 2021
Hi mom, i miss you so much. I want to thank you for all the discipline you instilled in me. You are a mom every one always hopes for, though you were strict you taught me how to always do my part. I have never seen you lose your temper, you are always cool and calm . When growing up i used to doubt if you were my real mom because you were a no nonsense person. You treated me just like everyone. As the youngest child i thought i would be spoiled. You instilled the fear of God and always said "Don't judge a book by it's cover,", meaning that we should not be judgmental when meeting new people. You also taught me to keep quiet when i have nothing sensible to contribute. When you would ask me to do something and I am too slow for your liking you would say, "Be quick". YARA lo je be. Contentment was your motor, you said with this i could attain greater height. You also believed that we shouldn't envy anyone. The grand children always call you Halo and you taught them values of life as well as stories and songs. Mama Adeniyi you will surely be missed, no one can fill that vacuum.

Mama Mama Me,

I miss you every day and wish you were here with me right now. I hope you are looking down at my brothers and me and are proud of your grandchildren. I promise to teach my children everything that you taught me plus more. Lately, I have been lonely and sad, but I know you are with me always, and I have gained another angel. I pray that you are resting easy and that you are happy with grandpa and all your siblings!  I pray that I am able to handle this loss and turn it into a gain of accomplishments. I love you! I love you! I love you! 

My Grandmother

Shared by Dan Babayode on May 4, 2021
My grandmother was a very special woman. She was very intelligent, witty, cunning, loving, beautiful and kind. Grandma was a disciplinarian, requiring people to greet her upon meeting her, use their mouths to speak rather than gesturing, and mind their manners when dealing with her and those in her presence. She was a kind person, a teacher at heart even in her old age, teaching my siblings and I right from wrong. I thank God for the opportunity to have met such a great and impactful person such as my grandmother. She will truly be missed, but not forgotten as I will never forget the memories made over the years. I will remember all of the life lessons grandma has imparted upon me during her wonderful life. I will always appreciate and admire her wisdom, kindness, sense of humor, and patience. May she forever rest in perfect peace.

Farewell to a Mother in Israel

Shared by Ronke Harbor on April 28, 2021
Mama Adeniyi, was my dad's (Ayinla Allen) cousin. My dad grew up with mama's siblings.
She took me into her home during my years at  AGGS (1973-1978). Mama was a tough cookie but very loving and a disciplinarian. The values she instilled in me abides with me till today. Students of AGGS could not  send me on some errands because of my relationship with Mama. Time will not permit me to say much. 
Good night dear mother till we see you in the morning.
