Sleep on in the bosom of your Lord mama!

'Mummy' as I used to call her was an aunt, mother and grandmother to me. I grew up hearing stories about her from her favourite brother(my father), and when I had the opportunity to live with her, she blessed me with stories of 'aburo mi' this and that.
  I was told of her hospitality to family and friends, I witnessed and experienced same within the short period of time I stayed with her. She was a God fearing woman who is always happy to see people progressing and succeeding in life and a very good motivator.
She taught me life lessons on how to be a wife, a mother and a friend to peers. Mama taught me to value family whether immediate or extended; and also how to care for them by reaching out to them and reminding them how much they mean to me by simply saying'love you ......'.
Words are not enough to express how much she will be missed because I will definitely miss her smiles, stepping( like a model) and my husband will miss her words of wisdom. I wish she will be here to meet and carry my children when they come, but God knows best.
This is not goodbye because you live on in our hearts.....till we meet to part no more!

Adieu Mummy (Grandma Surulere) as I fondly call you. 
It is with heart felt warmth I am writing this because I know you are at peace with your Maker. Iya daa daa. Among Mothers, you are unique. I can never forget the role you played in my life. My story of motherhood is not complete without you in it. You took care  of my children without reservations. Thank you Grandma Surulere, for your labour of love over me and my children. Iya daa daa I will forever miss you. Sleep well at the bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ till we meet again at the other side. We love you but God loves you more.
Rest on Grandma Surulere
