"Happy heavenly birthday darling.

In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart There's a place
That only you can fill

It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn't go alone
A part of me went with you
The day God took you home"

"I only met Femi once  in 2002 when he  stopped by at his  mum's office at GT Bank in Lagos on his way from school. Bright and smart young lad  with a whole life ahead of him.  Thereafter, I could literally tell when Joke ( mum) was on phone, talking to  Femi and his brother. The excitement always filled our small office.  
You sure brought so much joy to your mum and all those who knew you closely.
Femi's  was a short life, indeed confirms the brevity of our race on earth. But he lived well. The lives he touched continue to remember him and celebrate him even in death.

Your memory is blessed Femi.  Sleep on, rest in the Lord till the glorious morn."

"I know I'm late, but it's been a whole year and I have never not missed you one single day. I've miss your texts, your smile, your whole personality that would light up a room. You were the best friend anyone could ever ask for and theres not  one moment I would of ever taken it for granted. This past Monday has been a rough one for me as to many people you've touched. But I will never forget all the great memories and time I have got to spend with you over the years. Every single day is hard without you. You were truly a blessing to have met and I will never forget everything you've done for me and the people you have met through your life. What a great honor it was to be you're friend I miss you so much Femi."

"Childhood, Dolphin Estates....Patience to let Joke pre-tie her gele's on his head!!  they have the same head you know.  many boys would have protested but that's how Femi was...joyful helper."

This tribute was added by Joke Coker on 22nd April 2016

"Femi, was an exemplary and inspirational young man. Empathetic, intelligent, kind and witty. His sense of humour and infectious laughter got us laughing even before he finished his jokes. He was a joyful person with a confident "can do" spirit. Whenever he said "Don't worry, I've got this" it gave me an unwavering sense of assurance. Thats how dependable he was.

Thank you for coming into this world to light up our lives with your love. And though I miss you terribly, I know our separation is only for a while and that you are in a better place. Heaven gained an angel when you left, you will always be loved and remembered.

with love,
