My Babe,
Two years have gone by and it seems like yesterday. I spent the whole day today watching your videos, pictures, reading cards, and letters. They brought so many beautiful memories. It felt like you just popped out and will be back soon. I miss you so very much.
The girls are growing so fast. They all miss you. God has been our strength, safty, and sustainer. Indeed he is faithful. REST IN PEACE.

Sister Evelyn Omoh Odiyi. Forgetting the day you left us in this world is like betraying you. Exactly two years today you went to heaven. I wish you are here to see what the Lord is doing with me today in life and Ministry. The ministry you encouraged me to start has grown to be a city without walls. May your soul continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord. AMEN. We love you.

My Babe,
Happy birthday in Heaven, my sweetest heart. It would have been your 50th birthday. We had all the plans..... but God's plan is more gracious.
Death can only take you away from me, but it can never take the precious bond and memories we made together. My Babe, wishing you floods of happiness in heaven. Though it saddens my heart knowing you're no more, I feel happy because I strongly believe you're having so much fun in heaven.
Enjoy.
I Miss you.
Karen and Anita miss you.
Everyone miss you.

My Babe, my wife, my love,
One year gone by without you yet it feels more like yesterday.
I still miss you every day and now one year gone by and i am still not strong enough to accept that you are really gone.
I miss you every day.
Now there is nothing about you anywhere anymore. Life didn't stop..... not even for a minute. But you know you will always be in my heart.
The girls miss you. I miss you. We all miss you.
What are your thoughts about your funeral ? I hope you liked it.
For months people asked me how i am ? And i say to them i am fine. I think what i am really saying is i am alive and not dead.
Your deatho has redefined life for me.
Your relationship with God was exceptional so i know for sure you are in heaven. If anyone deserves it.... it's definitely you.
Guess what, on a lighter note.... Anita is turning out to be just like you she is everywhere ! She reminds me so much of you so i overlook a lot of her weaknesses and enjoy the laugh. LoL
Karen is turning out to be very strong...... though very compassionate caring and loves kids.... just like her Dad. LoL
We spent the first Christmas without you, my heart broken was indeed broken. No body can love you more than me .... and the girls, outside of God who loves you most .... yes nobody ! You are the best. You went through more than any one should go through and without a joyful ending
Today i lay aside the cloth of mourning.. and i put on the garment of praise.
I put aside anger, and i embrace peace, joy and forgiveness by grace.
Today i choose to remember your last words to me, as you looked me in the eyes not knowing it was to be the last time i would hear your voice, as you said to me "YOU ARE A GOOD MAN" Come alive in me. Today i choose to remember the beauty of the life you live.
Today i make a choice to be alive again.
God has been faithful. Testimony abounds.
I miss you.
The girls miss you.
We all miss you.
Continue to rest in peace.
Your husband.
Your Sweetheart
Paul K Odiyi.

My Babe,
Today 20th July you would have added another year...... When I think of all the years that you were by my side, they were special. I know we shared more smiles, more laughter and more love than I ever hoped for. You brought joy to my life. You stood firm by my side and help me be the man and father that I am today. We had dreams. Life happened to us. Your faith and believe in christ was your strength. I felt there was nothing I couldn't do with you by my side.... my helper ..... I never felt alone. Today, I know you were the one for me. If I had to choose again, you' re still the one I would choose again and again. You will always hold a special place in my heart. You were such a blessing to all who knew you. I love you with all my heart. Karen and Anita loves you. I miss you . Our children miss you. We all miss you. I know you are in the Best place. God is ever so faithful. To him be all the glory.
Sleep well.
My Babe Forever.

The news of your passing was so hard for us to bear, but we take solace that you have gone to be with our maker where all pain and tears are taken away. However you will be remembered for the great faith you demonstrated, you will be remembered for the good moments we shared, moments of laughter and memories of friendship, you will be remembered for your kindness and thoughtfulness, you will be remembered for your rare humility and the legacy of service and above all, you will be remembered for who you are. We love you but God loves you more. May your soul rest in perfect peace. Bro Odiyi the Lord be with you and the girls. We will continue to put you in our prayers. Bayo & Bimbo

Auntie Evelyn...I was so shocked when I heard of your passing...you were indeed a woman of great faith, always smiling and full of joy... your words of encouragement have gone a long way... your kindness and care for others is forever imprinted in our hearts...may God receive you with the words "welcome my good and faithful servant"... Sleep well auntie xxx
Posted by Akin Adediran on April 25, 2019
I don’t know you personally but have heard great things about your great personality, kindness, the fear of God as well as your ministry. I am sure the legacy you have left behind will continue to be a testimony as well as emulated.
Rest in perfect peace
Posted by O Lucas on April 22, 2019
I never really knew you personally sister Evelyn but I was amazed and encouraged by the testimony of your faith from those who knew you personally. You were described to me as “ a woman of strong faith” and for that reason, I remember thinking to myself and concurring, that God will honour His word more than His name in your life. It is very rare to see such demonstration of strong faith in the midst of deep trials. Hence when I heard the news, I was deeply disappointed and troubled and I couldn’t help but ask, but God, why?However I’m learning our God is the unquestionable One and His ways are mysterious, but in it all, He is still God and has the final say. I trust that You will rest in his eternal peace now. He will hold each of your very loved ones in the palm of His hands and carry each of them through each day they face without you. Thank you for your great example of courage which has inspired me and, no doubt, many others. May God grant such courage, and stronger, to each of your loved ones. Rest in His peace tcxx

I felt my heart crushed into tiny bits when I heard about the untimely passing away of your beloved wife. Words cannot fully express the shock and sorrow. The loss of your wife is felt by many. May her beautiful soul rest in perfect peace. Wishing you peace to bring you comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your heart.
Posted by Maseba Ngor on April 18, 2019
Aunty Evelyn, you know the promise of God concerning you that you will live in His presence and behold His face, your faith for God is with boldness and you are always positive because you know your Father, you love my family so dearly that you communicated to us even in the hospital. Praise never seized from your mouth... and that's how you will want us to praise God in all situation. We love you but God loves you most, sleep on till the resurrection morning...
Posted by Dan Odiyi on April 17, 2019
Sis Eve,
There is a sunshine for each sunset,
And beyond this dark horizon,
Our hearts once more will sing.
From those early days in Sariki Yarki till you left ,you were an epitome of LOVE and an embodiment of dogged FAITH.
Through it all you were courageous
You fought and you WON!
Your were and remain a BLESSING to us !
And though the tide of life ebbs and flows,the gates of your memory will never close.
Goodnight sister mi.
Posted by Mercy Enejo on April 16, 2019
It was a great shock to hear that you had gone home.....Mummy Karen!you were a wonderful personality. I used to stop by your shop to say hI,oh....my consolation is that you've gone to a place where there will be no pain,no sadness.See you Ma on the resurrection morning.
Posted by Felicity Nkwocha on April 16, 2019
Romans 6:4. We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
Dear Sr Evelyn I know you are walking in the newness of life with Christ where there is no more pain. We miss you here on earth but God needs you in heaven.
Posted by Joel Uzibor on April 15, 2019
It was a deep shock and sudden sadness to hear this.
The last time I had the opportunity to see you was 2001 in Kano.
Since then, you have always been indelible in my heart. It is impossible to simply forget who you are because every moment that you visited our office or that we visited your home was always joyful, blissful and unforgettable.
Our only comfort lies in your life of faith in Christ, and in the legacy that you have left for us all to behold and be inspired by. While it is extremely difficult for us to miss you, it is a relief to know that you rest on in His presence till we all meet to live forever, really happily ever after.
For... "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed"
Rest on my sister, rest on.
Posted by David Ativie on April 13, 2019
Aunty Evelyn, you left too soon. Words can’t possibly describe the void created by your passing. Your departure emphasizes our sojourn here is finite and the importance of making each day count. No doubt, you made each day of your life count.
You were one of a few people I envisaged having in my corner to guide me through certain milestones in life. Sadly, your gentle words of wisdom and memories are all that’s left behind. But I am grateful I have those words and memories to hold on to.
Your selfless nature is rare, and you remained selfless through it all! Even during the days of discomfort when it was understandable and okay to make yourself the center of attention, you didn’t! You focused on praying with and encouraging others around you. Your last words and prayer for me will forever remain with me. Your selfless love for Uncle Paul is undeniable #relationship goals. You exemplified a life deeply rooted in the word and love of Jesus Christ, a true role model and mentor for many.
Your absence is felt, and your memories live on! Though you’re gone, you will never be forgotten. We all miss you. Rest easy Aunty Evelyn

Words cannot express how we feel. You have been a big part of our lives and really appreciate you. Thank you for all. God knows best why He called you home at this time. He will strengthen and comfort the family. God bless you. Tobi, Toni, Tolu, Bukayo and Dayo Oladunjoye.

Our loss, Heaven's gain.
Good night and sleep well, till we meet to part no more, dearest Sis.
Posted by Josephine Igonor Olusakin on April 12, 2019
Hmmm, we still chatted on the 3rd only for me to get a call barely few days that you were gone.. I know I should not cry,but you were a big Sister to me. You are a woman of faith. You proved to the world that the word of God is potent. Sis like I always called you,you have fought a good fight...Rest on Sis.
Posted by Ebun Okenla on April 12, 2019
I first met you when you came on holiday and on one day when pastor P had to go into town he left you in the church office and you came to seat by me stating your observation of me in church that I seemed to have built walls round myself as you never saw me really chat with people I remember I smiled and thought Pastor P come and carry your wife, you said you were going to break down the walls I had built up around me little did I know that you were not just going to break down the walls but excavate the foundation the walls were built on.
Our friendship grew when you came to live here in the UK and I remember bugging you to join Sunday School because of the passion you had for God’s word , when you finally joined you also decided to join the hospitality dept I remember asking you why you joined after the guests had gone and you said to support me and I exclaimed Sis Evelyn with all your health issues and you released a torrential downpour of the bible passages over me saying you had no health issues that Jesus had healed you.
When you were hurt about something that was said or done to you you would sit me down and pour out your heart not for gist it was so you could get it off your chest so you did not harbour any offences and also for me to say if you were culpable in any part of it.
You were soo passionate about the word of God you would call the young ladies in church and give them a book of the bible to read so you could discuss with them and explain any bits they didn’t understand I remember one young lady Miss O name withheld who you gave the book of proverbs to study and after 3 weeks she said she was still on chapter 6 and you exclaimed. I hope the young lady reads this and goes past chapter 6 of proverbs!
Apart from being a woman of faith, you were also a woman’s woman and a good friend and very complimentary of me every time you saw me you would call me ‘fine girl you carry well’ that always made me laugh the narcissist in me is looking for someone to continue with that. After service you would sit with me and hold my hand and ask me to retell my testimony and share something new I had learnt in the Bible. When I was illl your ogbonna and your calls were a constant source of joy to me. I can go on and on but I miss you a lot you have created a void no other earthly friend can fill.i miss you muchly. This is not goodbye this is till we meet again. Love ya.

A TRIBUTE TO A RARE GEM
It is with great pain in my heart that I have to write this tribute. Words
can't even do justice to my true feelings at this time, this has been way more painful that we could
ever have imagined. When the news about your demise came, it came with a heavy thump in our
chests as a big blow. It’s surreal but here we are, writing you a tribute, because of how
strong and lively a woman you were. There is clearly no doubt that your absence has left a big
void as you were a mother figure to many, a great counselor and most of all, a wonderful sister
in-law to me.
You have fought the good fight of faith, you fought hard till the last minute and remained strong in faith but the truth remains that it still hurts deeply when we remember you're no more with us. I'm glad you're now in Heaven, resting with Jesus. Our mouths are full of questions but who are we to question God? He knows best. We do not mourn as those who have no hope but we'll always celebrate your life and the legacies you left behind. We love you Sister Evelyn and we miss you so much. Adieu!

My lovely and darling sister Evelyn Omoh Odiyi, I find it hard to believe that I am making this funeral tribute for you! Words cannot expressly describe how heart broken I am for your departure. You were like sunshine that embraced everyone who came in contact with you with your warmth and loving natural personality, ever smiling face, naturally kindhearted woman, good mother and reliable, humble wife to your husband till the end. We will always miss you but your memories and legacy will never be erased. But John 6 v 40; says "And this is the will of God(Him) that sent me (into the world) that everyone which seeth/seek the son (Jesus Christ) and believeth on Him, will have everlasting life; I will raise him/her up at last day ". You were a great believer of Jesus Christ. Sister Evelyn continue in your sleep of rest in perfect peace in His bosom where there's no more pains, worries and suffering until we all meet again in heaven to part no more. Good night. I Pray that the unquestionable God shall  fill in the vacuum your departure has created with  His spirit in Paul's family and in all of us. From your Bros Chuks Eneboachi.

Sister Evelyn Odiyi,
Your Death came as a shock to us and as you sit in the arms of the Lord, your family, friends and colleagues mourn your death. It’s all right as each of us have the Lord beside us as we say our farewells. Your body might be gone from this world but your spirit will live on in our hearts forever. Today we mourn you in our own way as we pay a tribute to you.
We still wake up every morning hoping this is a dream, and it hurts knowing you are gone forever. I remember last time I visited you in the hospital, you sounded strong and believed in the Lord that you shall come victorious and told us you were leaving the hospital very soon but God decided it was your time to come home.
We will cherish every single moment we spent with you. I guess this is our final goodbye since we never got the chance to do so. Rest in peace Mrs Evelyn Odiyi. We will definitely miss you.
                   Love You,
Posted by Hellen Adesina on April 10, 2019
Sis Evelyn, though i have only known you for a short while, I am glad i had the privilege of having one to one chat with you twice.first was when we were planning a get together for your husband's 50th birthday from our conversation I saw a woman with passion who loves and wants the best for him. During my visit to the hospital, you showed strong faith and courage in God your smile was very contagious while sharing jokes together the .your genuine heart of care and love for all is incomparable.I know you have fought a good fight and you finished well. Sis, you will be dearly missed continue to rest in the bosom of God.

Evelyn,
Indeed you were a woman of Faith;
Never a down moment with you
Your trust and Faith in the Lord had ripple
effect on all around you .
The expression of your strong believe in the Lord;
And your words of hope were unparalleled.
     Alas! a star is gone, we ve lost a gem;
     A jewel of inestimable value;
     A virtuous woman.
The race has been intense and laborious;
But you completed it and you won;
Indeed you are A CHAMPION OF FAITH
Sleep on our beloved, in the bosom of the Lord.
                                    Emma & Ronke Odiyi

It is God who gives us life and who decides when it ends. A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Surely she will not be forgotten.”
You were a woman of great faith and wisdom and I'll cherish all the advice and encouragement you gave me.
God knows best and although you are greatly missed, we're assured you're resting in his presence.
Posted by Victor Daniels on April 10, 2019
