Hmmm....where do I start from? Words can't express your good deeds and kind heart. You were selfless in your dealings with everyone and your love for God was beyond doubts. Some of the good virtues my mom taught me was what she learnt from you. There's no one to call Esther konkolo as you fondly called me.
We love you but we know God loves you more.
Sleep well iya rere.....

Words fail me and I'm pulling blanks on how to react or respond to you being gone. However, I remember the great memories we had and how much you sacrificed for your loved ones. You were loving, generous, a great disciplinarian, and most importantly a lover of God.

I know you deserved more than you got from this world, but I am glad you have gone home to rest.

Rest easy Mum,

I love you.

Our dearly beloved sister, we missed you so much already.
Your sudden exit from planet earth came to us as a very rude shock. It was unbelievable,however we can't but accept the will of will of the Lord who knows the end from the beginning.
We remember all the good times we had together when we meet as a club. The welfare packages, prayers for our families especially children.
Deaconess,what of the early morning prayers you consistently send to us daily as our morning devotion? All that has seized now. How do we filled the void created? Ah! Ah!! Ah!!! . Adieu IYA BEJI. Sleep well sister till we meet to depart no more on the resurrection day.

Mummy, your passing is a great loss to me personally. I was too shocked to believe that you were there a day ago and then gone. Having met and known you for over 19 years, there was never a time you were never in my corner. You have always treated me as your own son: loving, caring and always sharing everything – joy, hurts and pain as you would to your son. It's a privilege and honor to know you.

What I would miss the most is your never-failing early morning message of hope, inspiration and strength to everyone on your contact. You dutifully did this in love to your Master & Friend Jesus Christ to the very end. Your last post still rings dearly in my heart (posted here verbatim)

As you are stepping out this Friday, you will enjoy favour with God and men. You Will not be weak or weary. Your strength shall be renewed day by day. You will not walk in the darkness. You Will walk in the light of God. You Will walk in the Mercy of God. God shall be glorified in your life and circumstances. You Will enjoy divine health and strength from above. The word of the Lord will come to you with accuracy, loud and clear. Peace be unto you in Jesus mighty name, Amen. Good morning and happy Friday.

Thank you for sharing your life with us – especially my siblings and I. You were there for us beyond measure. We will cherish your memory dearly and will miss your favourite endearment “Pele my dear”!

Sleep tight mummy, until we meet to never part again.

Love you forever!

I have been very reluctant to write this tribute as I could not bring myself to accept that you are gone forever. I have been in denial for more than two years since dad passed and pretending that he only just traveled so you departing so soon after is incomprehensible to me. I am angry, numb, and speechless at your departure as you had so much life ahead of you. Just a few days earlier you were so happy and thankful for my Mother’s Day messages and gift not knowing that would be the last one. We were planning to all come home as a surprise to celebrate your 70th birthday but that’s not to be.

You were a mother that fearlessly protected us from seen and unseen harm mostly at great cost to yourself. I would always remember the different ways you call me in different situations:

“Tola – when everything is normal”
“Detola – when you want to send me on errands”
“Adetola – when I should start saying my last prayers as I’m in big trouble”
“Teetoo – when missing me or very pleased with me”
“Idowu – when you need a favour or try to appease me”
“Alabi yellow – when you want to tease me with a twinkle in your eyes”

Mum, you have always prayed for two things: to depart quickly when the Lord calls you home without any prolonged illness and to not outlive any of your children; so, I am glad your prayers were answered. I am also glad you have found rest and hanging out with dad in heaven, and he would be very pleased to show you around like a “fresher”.

You were not perfect in any way but your kindness and generosity shine through your imperfection. I love and appreciate you deeply my “small but mighty” mama, fearless and revered by those that truly know her.

Till we see again, rest easy mum, and know that we would be alright.

NB: Take it easy with the angels…I don’t think they are used to being ordered around!!

Dear Grandma,
The time that we had together was too little and I wish we had more time to spend with each other and make more memories than what we shared before. But I am happy that you are now in a better place and that you finally get to be with the Lord.

Rest in peace Grandma, love Grace and Joy

Dear Ma,
Oh how shocking and how sad I was to hear about your passing. To know that like dad I will not be getting any prophetic messages and prayers from you, it’s painful. It really hurts to know I will not be talking to you again that my last call to you will be on Mother’s Day. One thing I know for sure is you are with the Lord and in a better place. I’ve always known you to be a woman of prayer, dedicated to the things of God. Thank you for been a pillar of strength and grace to the family. Your labour of work will surely not falter or fall to the ground but will continue to yield more fruits.

Adieu Mum

Your passing came to me as a shock and I am still unhappy that I didn't reach out to you as I promised. Your daily prayers on WhatsApp for years made a lot of difference. I wonder if you sleep at all, cos you usually send them in the middle of the night. You loved all of us (your children's friends) as your own children. I know it was very difficult for you alone after Dad passed in 2018. But your love for God kept you.
Keep resting in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ dear Mum.

It was with deep sorrow and shock that we received the news of your departure, our comfort is that mama has rested in the Lord and we are sure that one day we shall meet never to part again at the feet of our Lord Jesus. You loved God and were passionate about Evangelism. A woman of faith. We shall miss you alot!

Dear Mum,
Still in shock at your sudden passing. One minute you were alive and well, the next you are gone! It's so unbelievable that I can no longer call you or see you on this side of eternity. I still can't bring myself to say the word or refer to you in the past sense. I wish I could wake up and this will all be a bad dream! I assumed you will always be there, just a call or a text away. Every passing day since you went to be with the Lord has been a struggle for me. I still do not understand why God had to call you home now, so soon after Dad, but I have accepted God's will and ruling on this matter, knowing that His plans are perfect whether we see it or not. I thank God for your life and the time you spent here on earth. You were the glue that kept our family together and I am eternally grateful for you, your strength and your love.

You will forever be remembered and loved. Till we meet to part no more - Rest easy, Mom

Dear Grandma,
You were a strong independent woman, and a rock to me. You were the foundation on which the family that I love and cherish is built. You always put God first in whatever you did and showed us how to serve the Lord wholeheartedly. I still can't believe that you are no longer with us. Your smile still replays in my mind constantly, whenever we would call and talk with you, we would see the joy radiate from you. It always brightened my day whenever you would send me daily messages to encourage me in my life and journey with the Lord. I love and miss you so much grandma, I pray that you rest in peace in the bosom of the Lord.

Dear Grandma,

I remember how my mom would tell me stories about you and how caring and loving you always were. When I finally met you I was able to experience firsthand what my mom was talking about. You were always so eager to check up on us and ask how we were doing, you never failed to put others before yourself. I wish I could have seen or talked with you one last time before you left but everything that happens, happens for a reason and I know you are in heaven looking at us full of joy. You will be severely missed Grandma, and will always have a place in our hearts

Dear Mom,
It is still very difficult to accept your departure,  too sudden to understand or bear. In all things ,I bless the Lord! I thank Him for the years allowed to spend with you. You had a large heart for people, very caring and hospitable . You  were often referred to , by we your children as "Mama Africa " as a result of your unusual ability to accommodate or invite people into your home, even  strangers! That , you taught us!
I learned to fast and pray from you, we saw you practiced them and you also taught us to do likewise.
You sacrificed much for us, many we may never know, though  many i could still remember!
I take comfort in the fact that you are in a better place, resting in the bosom of our Lord Jesus! Rest on dear Mum. We will forever miss and love you. Lots of love !

Just as we reconnected after a long time, you were taken away from us so suddenly. We thank God for the impactful life that you lived. You were one of the people who made our childhood memorable.
Thank you for the love and support shown to our family over the years. You will be sorely missed but we take solace that you are with your Maker and we will meet again one day at the feet of Jesus.
Rest in perfect peace ma!

United High School Ikorodu Secretariat Studies Teacher, knew her through her sister (Aunty Iyabo) and became a family friend. What a reunion to have met her and hubby again when they came to visit loved ones in SA. She is such an amiable soul. Chatted with her at the beginning of the year and never knew I would hear her lovely voice no more. Always looked forward to receiving her early morning (1.30am) messages which I used as my status. O death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory? Victorious you are Ma!!! Adieu.
Posted by Kunle Dairo on April 6, 2021
The news of your death was shocking to me. When I didn't see your morning messages for two days, I never knew that you have left this world to beyond. Indeed you left too soon, but God understand. Your zeal for the things of God is great.

I will always miss you. Rest in peace dear sister.

Dear Grandma

No words can describe how big of an impact you have made on my life. You have inspired me to keep moving and never give up. The days you came to visit were the best days of my life. Hearing about your passing was a hard thing for me, but I will always celebrate your life and never forget the amazing things you have done in mine.

Rest in peace Grandma, you will be dearly missed

her Life

Forever in our hearts!

We are deeply saddened to share the news of the passing of our dear mother and grandmother, Lady Evangelist Elizabeth Olusola Oyawale . Mom breathe her last the afternoon of March 21, 2021 after a very brief illness. 
Mom loved the Lord with all her heart and worked diligently in His vineyard till the very end.
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.  My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." John 14:1-3

Dear Mom,
 I still find it hard and difficult to believe that you are no more, infact i still feel as if am dreaming. You didn't even leave a trace to suspect you would be leaving so soon, I never thought I would loose you even in the next 20 years. I felt a bit relieved after Baby Boy's death because I thought i had you to fill my empty void but now you also left me without any prior notice. You and Dad didn't even wait to give out my hand in marriage and give me your blessings just like you did to my siblings also you didn't wait to also eat my fruit and see my children not even one of them. Words can't express how hurt I feel and the fact that no one else can fill in you and Dad's space and walk me through the journey you ought to but God knows best. You and Dad should please not sleep, you can still watch over me and walk me through my journey even from where you are now because i now need you more than ever. Keep resting in the bossom of our lord jesus christ till we meet to part no more. Sun re ooo Iya Anu, My twin sister and My senior wife. I Love you but God loves you more.


Goodnight, Mom!
