Your gentle eyes carefully guides,
your gentle eyes encourage
Your gentle eyes instruct
I was not privileged to experience them rebuke
but I'm sure it would have been with love in them.

The last time we travelled together I was really under alot of pressure and the moment I saw your eyes I heard in my spirit man "Pastor don't worry all will be well"

You never complained, always as gentle as a dove.
You had respect for the gift of God no matter how 'small' the vessel carrying it.

When my dad was sick you called me and made me see a new perspective...
Mama, I have not been able to do what you told me but after this lockdown I will.

I don't know why tears are falling off my eyes as I type.
I'm sure it's because of the dust falling off my eyes
I see clearly now how much my family and I will miss you

Thank you for your encouragement and silent prayers.
Each time I mount the pulpit I see your eyes telling me "take it easy" and I would smile to myself

I believe someday, hopefully many years from now, we shall meet again in heaven and I intend to make sure that when that time comes I won't be the one missing.

Mummy was so kind hearted and extremely warm towards all. She(and Daddy) made their house a home to all of us Kike’s friends. I can’t forget her kindness in a hurry. May God continue to rest your soul in peace in Jesus name

Heaven just gained another Angel. Your daughter Kike was my friend, ever smiling and always ready to listen - which I know she got from you. Great mother and grandma, we love you but God loves you more. May your soul rest in peace. The Lord shall grant your entire family the fortitude to bear this loss. Sleep on ma.

Having a roof over your head has to count as one of God’s favors. For almost 2 years of my bachelor life, The Dosumus provided shelter for me at a time my family had it really rough. I recall reaching out to Sesan (whose friendship was forged on our way to Enugu for NYSC in 2007) and after explaining my predicament, he promised to discuss with his folks. Upon getting the green light, every single member of the family made me feel welcome. For anyone that understands the dynamics of keeping a home, you’ll understand the role Mrs Dosumu (Grandma) must have played to make this happen. For every day I spent as a guest, going and returning from work, she would have factored me into the dinner plans. Even times when I came back not necessarily hungry and you dare not decline! The Dosumus have since become my adopted family. It was at their home in Surulere that I conceptualized and registered my first business. For this and a lot more, I remain eternally grateful. Which is why it came as rude shock when I received news on the 22nd of May 2020 of Grandma’s passing, the previous day. We had recently celebrated Sesan’s 40th via Zoom and she appeared full of life, leading the prayers as usual. This still feels raw but I’ve chosen to celebrate the life you lived ma. I would forever cherish you, honor your memories and legacies through your beautiful family.

Mummy, as she was fondly called by all, was such a lovely mother, an amazing woman, Who created an open-door affair for all, an inviting atmosphere of warmth and love, not just for her family but also non family members.Anyone who came in contact with Mummy for the first time, would feel loved immediately just because of the way she welcomed you with her sweet smile.She was a woman of style, Mummy is so stylish that even her walking steps attract every passerby, she was beautiful both inside and outside, an icon of beauty, fashion and style.
I can't forget all the times we spent together, as NDC members, as mother and daughter, as Counsellor and Patient, and all the amazing meals Mummy cooked.
I can boldly and proudly say that if Mummy had established a restaurant, the business would have taken over the whole Lagos and beyond . Apart from Mummy's culinary skills, she liked to serve others rather than been served 
Mummy received guests with joy and so much pleasure, as she made sure nobody  left without eating her food, and if you refused to eat in her house, compulsorily, you will go with a take-away.
Apart from knowing her as a Deliverance Minister of our church, I have also worked with her in her Little School, Trestle Towers, where we teach and care for children,and mummy surprised me with the extra time, care and love in which she pampered the children with. Though I have a lot of memories of mummy, but one outstanding aspect of her life is the fact that,She used hospitality to minister to those around her. Mummy is a lover of God and she served Him even with her last breath.
Indeed, we will miss Mummy Dosumu, even in death, she will continue to be in our hearts. I pray that God will continue to comfort her family especially Grandpa, and also grant each and everyone of us the grace to bear this irreparable loss in Jesus Name, Amen.

Our dearest mother, it was a big shock to hear of your passing. You have left a big hole in our hearts and you will be greatly missed. However we stand on the word of God in Psalm 147:13 " He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds". We will always remember you in love, and we are just glad we knew you as a mother. Rest in perfect peace.

Grandma you'll be sorely missed. I remember a large portion of my teenage years was spent under your guidance. Your accommodating spirit was unparalleled, through this I learnt team spirit. The great Sunday meals and chats which is sure to lift ones spirit, and raise hopes that indeed against all odds one can be a winner no matter what life throws at you. You exhibited a hard-working streak this is evident in our man Obisesan. It is indeed a devastating loss to all you've left behind, the countless lives you've touched and imparted God's goodness on. One thing we are sure of is that you're up above in heaven smiling down on us here on us.
Rest in peace grandma

Mummy was a great mum to us all, we were all welcome in her home and as a good friend of Sesan, I was more of a family member in Murthala Animashaun.

May the soul of our dear mother rest in peace and may our prayers help guide her on her journey to our creator.

RIP Mummy

My beautiful mum,

Memories of your kindness, beautiful smile and extravagant generosity will be forever etched in my heart. I spoke highly of you with Sola just a few days before your passing, not knowing you were on your way to eternal glory. How I thank God for your life! Painful as it is that you are now absent in the body and I didn't get to hear your lovely voice one more time before God called you home, I'm comforted by the great memories left behind which I will always remember you by. You deserve the best mum; only God is wise. We take solace and courage in the ultimate victory you have won - eternity with Yeshua HaMashiac. You have passed on the baton to fight the good fight of faith and finish the race; we are in that journey of life too. Until we meet to part no more, rest well mummy. Love you always.

Your daughter,

Keep smiling, Mum.

"The memory of the righteous is blessed"

This is indeed true for mummy. My memory of her is one of love and a woman with a large heart. Her home on Babs Animashaun was always open to everyone. I've had lunch and dinner there many times. It took some time to actually know all of mummy's actual biological kids as everyone was welcome. We could all go in and out anytime. All the kids were brought up to be wonderful people. I pray that the legacy of love that mummy left behind will continue for generations to come.

Thank you grandma, for your love and living a beautiful life. From the first day Ore invited me into her blessed home in 2008, she was so warm and hospitable.

Wow, your transition was met with rude shock. I believe God knows best. Like the hymn writer wrote "we shall understand it better by and by".

I remember with nostalgia the way you welcome us: Youth Fellowship Executive of New Estate Baptist Church, Surulere, Lagos to your home for our monthly night vigil. You were a mother to us all. Joining us at times for prayers and encouraging us to serve God without reservation.

Thank you for your love and counsel. It was part of our development while we were growing up.

May the Lord comfort the immediate and extended family left behind as well as your many children.

Odigba. We will meet someday at Jesus feet.

On behalf of the children of Grand Ma CAO OLUNUGA (a.k.a. Grand Ma Shomolu), we hereby convey our heartfelt condolences. Mummy Surulere, as we fondly call our loving Aunty, showered love and care on all of us. Her sweet smiles temporarily gives way to stern warning ONLY when we fall out of line. A Disciplinarian per Excellence, no wonder, she contributed immensely to the responsible adults we have all become. You deserve a good rest, till we meet, on the Resurrection morning..... Our Saint Triumphant !!!

Mummy, the first time we met you was when we came to spend Christmas at your home. It was a wonderful time with the family. You received us with open arms.

It has been very sad news to hear of Aunty’s unexpected passing. Aunty was like a second mother to us and we miss her very much. She will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

She was always a wonderful and caring Aunty, a good support to us and a close friend to our mother, Clara Olabisi Ogunde (RIP), who was a dear cousin to her husband, Uncle.

We remember the good times we had at Aunty and Uncle’s house and how she would fuss over us whenever we went to visit. A particularly fond memory is how Aunty would often use the warm and endearing term “My Darling” with us. It is a memory that will always stay in our hearts.

Aunty was a truly wonderful kind soul and we will always remember her as a go to person who was a motherly presence in our lives. May her Gentle Soul Rest in Perfect Peace. Amen.

Our thoughts and prayers are with dear Uncle as well as her children, our dear cousins, and the extended family.

From her nephews and nieces Shola, Lisa(Bunmi), Yinka and Rotimi. The children of Clara Olabisi Ogunde (RIP) and Otunba Adedoyin Olayide Ogunde (RIP) (Uncle’s close friend and a former school mate from Ijebu Ode Grammer School class of 1955).

It is with gratitude to God for life well spent in Christ and humanity that I am writing this tribute on behalf of the Adelana's and my family. Mummy Surulere was indeed a Mother in Israel, abiyamo aboja gborogboro . Heaven has gained a very beautiful soul. Mummy is kind, loving, accommodating and reflects the true love of Christ, highly hospitable.
You are indeed a wonderful mum, thank you for all your love towards our children, when you came over to UK you took very good care of my children, nephews and nieces. I will never forget the Christmas we were in Nigeria with all the children and we came to Surulere with Toks and all the children, they had a great time with their Grandma, which they still fondly remember.
Little did I know that the 2 days spent with you during Wole's dad funeral was the last. You have a very special place in our hearts.
Mummy we love you so much, may your beautiful soul continue to rest in Peace till we meet again to part no more.

Grandma, I just can't find the right words to express how much I feel and missing you. You are indeed a mother in Zion. I cherish every moment with you, the counsel, motherly advise you do give me from time to time and encouragement like my biological mum.
The vacuum you created in our hearts will forever be felt, unless the Holy Spirit takes control. I have been planning and hoping to bring my family along to pay you a surprise visit someday soon, before the ugly news of your exit got to me.
All the same, we can't question God why He called you back home now. Just be rest assured that we will meet someday to path no more in paradise. Rest on grandma.
My heartfelt condolences to the Dosumu family as a whole and your grand children as well. The good Lord will grant them all, the fortitude to bear this vacuum you have created in their and our lives.
Rest on grandma!

Dearest mummy,I preferred calling you grandma bcos you were the most soft, gentle,calm and kind hearted Landlady I have ever met. Then realised my kids and your grandchildren were in the same school,even my daughter and ponmile were classmates,saw the way you always take good care of your grandchildren and make out time for them whenever the school had a function,then I became more comfortable and closer to you. You would make out time to check on me at the shop ,sometimes call just to know how I'm doing and all. I was still thinking to myself that I need to call grandma to know how she's doing during the lockdown and before I could,you called me yourself the very week you passed on,I was so shocked to get the news of your demise when I got to the shop the following week. Grandma you are one in a million,will surely miss you dearly. Continue to blossom in the hands of the lord. We love you but we know you have gone to a better place, God loves you more.....

I knew of your kindness, strength and love for your family before I ever met you. Kike and I would always casual talk as teenagers  she didn't even realise what I gleaned from those stories.
When I finally met you, you had the kindest smile. Your smile reached your eyes. You didn't need to but you showed me so much warmth in brief visits to your home. They stayed with me. I saw how you treated and spoke to others. Family and relationships was very important to you. I could clearly see though you did not alter a word about that to me. After all actions they say speaks louder than words.
Recently during lockdown, I came across a letter my mum wrote to me in the 90s. She mentioned fondly how both of you spoke for ages over the phone as if you had been old friends or even met before then.
That's how I remember you, always welcoming, you found ways to remove barriers and made others comfortable.
You left an amazing family behind.
I'm glad I knew you.
Sleep well Ma.

Bye-bye wonderful Mummy. No matter how long anyone may live in this sinful world, we all have that inevitable debt, that is, Death, to pay. However, to me, it seems that it has been too soon for you to embark on this Eternal journey, considering how good you were to humanity.

Frankly, I am still very much at sea to comprehend the reality that you have gone for good and therefore, I will no longer hear your inspiring voice anymore as I used to, when we spoke regularly on the phone. Mummy, you were such a wonderful, caring, loving, humble and God-fearing mother. 

Your seed of respect for all and sundry, honesty and humility par excellence can visibly be seen as imparted to all your children whom l have had occassion to interact with and without any regret.

For example, since I met Mrs [Dns] Sola Sofowora, who happens to be one of the very responsible Ministers of our Ministry for over a decade now, and that was even before God brought me to know you, l immediately saw the humble upbringing she had from Mummy & Daddy Dosumu when I finally met with you.

I can still remember vividly how you demonstrated your motherly love and care on me during one of my visits to Nigeria when I visited your house in Lagos. You indeed spoilt me by overloading with assorted foodstuff gifts for my family back in South Africa as if you were the producer of them, but then, that was how generous you were.

Mummy, there is no doubt that our association with you was indeed very short but your memory will remain evergreen in my family. I am sure that at resurrection, we shall all meet to part no more in the mighty name of Jesus, amen.

Congratulations for having come to the market (the world) to do your bit of 'trading' and you have successfully completed your own assignment and have now returned home in peace.

Goodnight wonderful Mummy as you rest perfectly in God's bossom.

For and on behalf of Dele & Margaret BRAIMOH. [South Africa]
