"Celebrating what a wonderful Mother you are today! We continue to feel your love in big and small ways. Words cannot express the sorrow of missing you, nor the joy of having had you! Forever missed, Forever loved, Forever grateful, Forever blessed!"

"Today was harder than I was prepared for. Those final days have been more present lately due to my needing to go back to the ICU with a patient. Even though hard, I felt that you were looking out for my patient as you often prayed for anyone I was worried about in the past. I felt so alone but not so much after I talked to the others. They give me courage, those two. Anyway, looking back at last years came pouring down on July 1st, 2016. We took flowers to Holy cross today and Noelle said excitedly that we should bring balloons on your birthday. Naomi wanted to pray, so she led a prayer and asked God to look after you. 5 years of missing you, only an eternity to go...."

"Always will light a candle for you, and never lay a flower. Your life was light, a beacon of love. A moment of silence for you may happen soon, but how shall I stay quiet as I mourn...I know you will be there July 1st, but don't show up as rain, this time. Missing you always."

"I found this online and felt you speaking these words to ALL your children and little angels!

A Mother’s Message From Heaven
I see you my darlings, all the time,
I know everything you do.
Would you believe, my dearest children
I’m even closer now to you!
I can see inside your minds,
Indeed, inside your hearts,
I even know you better now,
Than I did before, sweethearts.
I’ve always loved you – you know that,
But maybe now I love you more,
I love the adults that you’ve become,
Just as I loved the child before.
I know how much you miss me,
Well, I surely miss you, too.
I miss our talking and our laughing,
And all we used to do.
Whether you are six or sixty,
You’ll always be my precious child.
You’re the babies that I carried
And the adults that helped me smile.
What you need to understand,
Though death has taken me away,
Is that I’ve not left you, my darlings.
I am still with you today.
My family, I could never leave you;
God, of course, would not want that.
Physically, we are apart,
But our hearts are still attached.
I love you all the time,
You cannot get away from me.
That’s the way a Mother is
Right until eternity.
Every day I’m with you
I see you from above,
And I want for you to know
How very much you’re dearly loved.

Dear Mother, your love never dims, it continues to light our way!"

"Naomi recalled the last time she saw you today. She said she hugged you goodbye as you lay in bed after a hospital visit. I was surprised she had such an accurate memory, describing details of the hospital even though she didn't know the name. She also recalled how you comforted her after she had bad dreams. She said you are her best Grandma! Noelle knows you named her Hadassah, and called her your Queen! Please continue to watch over us. Deeply missing you!"

"Thinking of you today, wishing you were here especially at this time. Happy Birthday, let Uncle know he is loved and missed, wish I could have told him one more time. Don't even know what to say about Nadia..."For tomorrow and it's needs, I do not pray; but keep me, guide me, love me Lord, just for today.""

"Dear Mommy Akanbi,
I miss you so much and it still hasn't hit me that you're not with us anymore. It hurt me the most that I wasn't able to attend your funeral because I'm in Houston. You always taught me to be myself and to please myself rather than those around me. You also ALWAYS reminded me to smile. I love you and miss you. Love your baby <3"

"Mr. Akanbi, Bola, Nike, Yemi and all of your family and friends--My thoughts and prayers are with you. I truly loved Mrs. Akanbi and she touched my heart in a special way. She was the definition of a Proverbs 31 woman and I will always remember our conversations, prayers and times that we laughed together. I know she is rejoicing with God! Love You all!"

"Dear Aunty Eunice
Thank you for touching my life in so many ways....I know you are now resting in the Lord.  Surely you will be missed by so many but the Lord knows better than all of us.  I find comfort in these verses John 10:27-30
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand."
