ForeverMissed

Many things have been said about late Mama Felicia Ajoke SOETAN (Sept 12, 1937 - March 8,2021) and many more would still be said. During her 80th birthday in September 2017, words such as Nurse pae excellence, life saver, very devoted, hard working, caring and loving mother were freely used to eulogies her. I say the most amazing grandmother anyone could wish for, what more do I need to add.
Whenever I greeted her, I vividly remember her response "Omo mi, sə alafia ni, Toyin nko" (Toyin is my wife) and that made me feel good.
Mama is a very devoted Christian always attending programmes like Otoge, (enough is enough) revivals and many others until old age sets in.
Good night Mama Folami, may your soul find peace and rest in the bosom of your creator. And may your passage on Mother earth never to be forgotten.
MR & Mrs FALEYE.

I thank God for big mummy’s life 
I remember fondly when big mummy came to collect me and my 3 siblings from Murutala Airport in 1977 which was the first time we had step foot on Nigerian soil from London. She came and collected us in her red beetle. It was a hot evening, and we were thousands of miles away from our land of our birth.
I thank God for the time she cared for us while our mother stayed in London.
I thank God I managed to see her a few more times when I returned to London over 40 years ago. I came to Nigeria a few times since returning to London and managed to see big mummy when I came to visit my now late father with which she came to his burial in 2010 .
I thank God that I managed to speak to big mummy on the phone over the last few years and remember her happy voice and her saying I love you I love you . May her dear soul rest in perfect peace at the right hand side of God.
I shall treasure the memories that I have of our dear big mummy.
In my heart and never forgotten.
You will be dearly missed. 
Rest big mummy rest on the right hand side of God
Love from you niece

My dearest mum,friend and confidant, words are not enough to say how much you mean to me. You had always supported me through thin and thick my life. We never plan it together not to return from a visit to the doctor that fateful day but God knows the best. Continue to rest the Bossom of the Lord. I will miss you and your counsel greatly.
We met to part no more on the last day.

Mummy Soetan is gone. Sisi Oyinbo as my father and his siblings called her in appreciation of her fair skin. She had inherited it from her mother. She was a mother to me having being there since I was born. Her living on Omodigbo Street which was so close to us also made it a necessity to see her often. Also as the official errand boy of my mother ensured I was the one to deliver messages to her quite often. But with a glad heart I ran the errands to her house. She was always of such a cheerful disposition and then you were sure to receive a cold soft drink from her. A word on or two of prayer was always in the mix as well. Her being from Abule Onifade which was the next one to Abule Akoni in Itoki ensured sharing many family engagements. Then we attended the same Church and belonged to the same society. Hers being the female wing. In all numerous interactions with her, never for once did I hear a word said out in anger nor a disposition different from pleasant. She was ever smiling. She bore life's travails when they did come with christian equanimity and thanks to God, she surmounted all to the glory of God.

Aunty, you have gone to rest in a better place but your virtues of love for the next man, love and spread of the Gospel of Christ your Reedemer are.left with your children and those that had the opportunity to crossed paths with you in your life journey. 

Adieu Aunty. Take thy rest in the bosom of your Saviour who you were not scared to proclaim his name and his mission. Sleep well beloved.
