"Rest on sweet sister."

This tribute was added by Olamide Missa on 15th June 2017

"It's been one year of what ifs and why's(Astagfirullah). But in the midst of all that, it's also been a year of moving closer to Allah, of self discovery, of learning resilience, of acceptance. You would have thought the tears would have dried up by now,lol. But now we know you're in a good place, and I think that's the first step towards healing. I know you would have hated us mourning you for so long, so we are moving to phase 2: celebrating your life. Alhamdulillah!. Your life was full of ups and downs but through it all you remaned steadfast in your faith.  So to celebrate you today, I'll (try to) drink a bottle of coke. I ate rice yesterday. But I can never try that yucky avocado and bread thing. Sorry. I love you but no way.

The girls are doing great, Atinuke looked gorgeous in her school dance outfit. Tunrayo is now a self taught hair stylist, and they both play soccer in school( You should have bought them ballet outfits instead of jeans"

"Abbey boy...she will call me ...your love is absolute . .. Your care 100 % genuine ... and your infinite support is beyond imagination....
Everyday I  think about you - everyday I question why you had to go ....very difficult to comprehend talk-less of accepting but I have no choice ..I just have to accept ... Not too sure if I can to be honest but I just have to say I accept ..It was you - thought me to love unconditionally and you showed me love unconditionally. .. You thought me to persevere and always embody simplicity , humility and respect . treat anyone and everyone the way I want them to treat me ....our last conversation ended with take care of the twins .. I pray Allah accepts all your prayers, aspirations and wishes for Tinu and Tutu... Continue to rest in the bosom of Allah...May He accept all our prayers for you and yours ..Ameen you sister xx"

"It's Atinuke's birthday tomorrow. It's going to be a tough day for us all.  I am comforted by Allah, knowing, believing, that all your sins have been forgiven and that we'll meet again in Jannah, Insha Allah.  It's been 4 months, it still hurts like it was yesterday. I pray this gets easier with time. I miss you so much,  and I love you sis."

"Aunty K. After the initial shock and hurt then came acceptance followed   an inner peace because I truly believe you are with the Lord. The questions in my head stopped coming and I know that is not of this world but of a Higher Being. I do however still hurt when I think of your children and mummy, the Lord is their strength. My only regret is not keeping in touch regularly but the sweet memories will suffice. Rest in peace Aunty K."

"I fervently believe that the Almighty Allah (SWT) is the only one who could explain the reason why I have to drive thru a very UNUSUAL route to work in order for me to see you drove into the shopping centre @ exactly 4:30pm of Saturday, June 11, 2016. Around 9:30pm same day, I was informed that you were rushed to the Hospital after performing IFTAR (breaking of fasting), but never made it out ALIVE.
About 6days earlier, I came to discuss about a scholarship opportunity at my job which I wished to pass to Tinuke, but, because it was a boarding school you showed some reluctance simply because "you don't want to be TOO far from the kids". What an investment of LOVE.
To my mind, it's absolutely definite that the will of Allah (SWT) MUST be accepted without any question.
I therefore plead with the Almighty Allah (SWT) to please grant you peace and a resting place in his bosom and to continue to assist the entire Family to be able to be there for your kids regardless of the ANTICS/VENOM from your babies' Daddy.

"It's hard to believe you're gone.  I still hear your voice in my head. May Allah get us through these difficult times. May He also help us bring up your kids the way you would have wanted to. I miss you so much sis....."
