My Mama, my Mama! One year today you left us. It's been like a dream, I wish, I wish! Missing you is an understatement. I couldn't have had a better mother. I am grateful to God for the gift of a mother like you. Your very last word was " JESUS". That name that is above every other name. Continue to rest in his bossom.

Tese, posted videos of you and her yesterday on your birthday and said "..today would have been my Mama's birthday..". I couldn't help but shed tears. It dawned on me again, that you were truly gone till we meet at Jesus's feet. Love you Mama and missing you is an understatement.
To my beloved mother

My Dear Aunty,

I miss your ever so lovely smile and contagious laughter that can make even the grumpiest of us cheer up no matter what.

Though you are gone, your foot prints of the love, advise, support, encouragement etc you exhibited towards us will forever be remembered and appreciated.

I take absolute solace in the fact that you have gone to a much better place. Rest on and well till we meet to depart no more.

Love Always.

Hearing of this I am lost for words

From the first day saw Grandma. I always liked her.
When she came to our house for the first time everyone was excited.
My Parents were brought closer together and so were me and my siblings
Grandma would always encourage us to read our books . But you know kids. All we want to do is play.

It's later on in life that we understand that life isn't just made up if play.
Grandma taught me that you can't just play all day and having nothing upstairs.
Grandma would teach me maths when I get home and reward me when she feels I have tried enough.
I felt very happy to get back home to see Grandma and my parents waiting for me smiling.

I really have a lot to say Grandma you will always be remembered

MAMA! MAMA! .......

Your death came as a shock. We wanted you to live longer to enjoy all you worked for, but, who are we to question God. Looking and touching your lifeless body in the hospital and you didn't give that your lovely smile and usual exclamation (aarhaarh), was heartbreaking. You are one of the major stepping stones to who Ojiyovwi is today. Your advices – Wonene eshare roooo! (Don’t follow men ooo!), Se be wo! (Read your books oo!), and countless memories to write about you. Really missing you! 
Rest till that perfect morning! ----

Indeed your death has left a mark in our hearts. The love, kindness, meekness, gentleness that you showed us all can never be forgotten in our hearts in years to come.
    Truth be told, when I was a child I never liked you because I felt like you never minded your business, always reporting to my mum when I did things you despised, and sometimes putting your mouth in things that I thought did not concern you. I got so annoyed whenever I heard the news that "Mama was coming to the house" and when you eventually come, I started anticipating the day you will leave just after your arrival. I felt like you were so old with an archaic mentality and so unfit for this modern generation. But that was just me thinking like a child and being selfish.
    But growing up as a teenager, to realize things for myself and had a taste of how the world had become, I began to thank God for giving me a great gift- and that is the gift of seeing my grandmother. I consider myself highly fortunate because there are so many children all over the world who didn't get the opportunity to see their grandparents and in some extreme cases some don't even get the opportunity to see their parents which is so terrifying.
    I began to enjoy all the moments I spent with you and most especially the Urhobo lessons you gave your grandchildren for free. I remember you always saying: "You're Urhobo men and women and for this reason you must understand your language". I must say that your teachings have gone a long way, not just enabling us to hear and speak our language but also to equip us in writing the Urhobo language we hear and speak. The most beautiful part of it all was that you always rewarded I and my siblings with a centre fruit (chewing gum) or ginger sweet which was quite funny but was one of the greatest things you did in our lives.
    Even when I am being scolded, beaten and sometimes punished for my bad and unruly behaviour, you still showed great love by begging my mother on my behalf and that meant a lot to me
    At times we forget to pray when we wake up in the morning because of haste, but because you cared so much for us, you filled in the gap on our behalf, singing your favourite songs and praying for the protection of the lives of your daughters and to you, that was not enough, you extended the prayer to all your grandchildren and great grandchildren and family members. What a wonderful grandmother you were!
    Personally your selfless attitude towards those you love and also those that surround you has really inspired me. I have learned from your example, to show love to people and have the interest of other people at heart even when they didn't deserve it, which speaks of how amazing and extraordinary you were.
     You're one of the greatest Icons I have ever seen, because, in you I saw a grandmother, a leader, a mother, a grandfather, a father, a pacesetter, an achiever and also  a role model to mention but a few.
    You have ran the race and conquered the race. We, your armies that you have brought to this world, must follow suit and conquer our own races. For we run with a joyful hope that one day we shall meet again. I love you so much GRANDMA❤❤❤❤

TRIBUTE TO MAMA
It was really a sad moment when I heard about the passing away of mama. To be very honest, I do not exactly know how to say what I want to say because it's so heavy in my heart. While I was thinking of the many things that she has done for me and my siblings, it's overwhelming, the love she showed us, the teachings, her kindness, now for someone who is reading this you'll probably think I'm saying this because she's my mama, as we call her, but beyond the family she showed this attribute to so many people. She had a heart for everybody and it's so sad to see her leave. Even today as I write this I don't know if I would ever be able to fully come out of all the pain because she had a very special place in my heart. I remember how she always taught us the importance of time. She had this song she always played for us speaking about making the best use of the time we had or we have rather. I still can't believe she's no more with us. I want to just send out two messages in this tribute which she would have loved everyone here to know and they are: love and the importance of utilizing your time well because at the end of the day, these are very important attributes. You might not be able to leave anything for people coming after you in terms of something tangible but love shown will continue to be remembered forever. There's a saying that people can forget whatever you give them but they can never forget how you made them feel. I urge us all to learn from what Mama has left for us which is the way she showed love. Also use your time well because we don't know when it will all be over. Use your time to show love to your families, your neighbours, your friends, even your enemies like the Bible says. I believe she would want to leave us with these. I would forever miss you Mama. Goodnight.

Grandma I love you so much and miss you so much, you were my queen. Grandma I want to thank you for everything you have done for your children and others.

Grandma you were always loving and patient, everything you did displayed your kind nature, you did not only look out for your family but other people around.


Grandma you will never ever ever be forgotten, you always showed your kind nature in everything you did and to everyone you met.
When you stayed with us I remember the different songs that you sang early in the morning and throughout the day, eventually those songs became my go to song when I wanted to sing worship songs, grandma you taught me so much about my culture and you taught me things no one else could.


Even when I felt low, you always encouraged me to study and do the right thing so that I would make my parents proud and build a good foundation for my life.

There will always be a hole in my heart without you, in life I looked up and will always look up to you, I want to follow the example that you led, to live a just life and do the right thing at all times.

Grandma I have so much regret in my heart, grandma I wish I had spent more time with you, I wish I could have had 1 more day with you, I wish I had called you more grandma, grandma I hope you forgive me.

Rest in peace mama, I love you so much.

The Demise of a Sibling no matter how advanced in age elicits sorrow, pains and a deep sense of loss. The transition to eternity of my Elder sister, Mrs. Lucky Omonemu Arumala generated these unpleasant emotions in me. Her passing also awoke once again my consciousness to the fragility of human life and the temporary nature of our sojourn on Earth here. "SISTER" as she was generally called, enjoyed long_ standing solid friendships with a wide circle of brothers, sisters and friends drawn from far and near. She was a pillar of support and source of inspiration to all who came close to her. She will be remembered for her strict adherence to the right principles of human behavior. We love you, but GOD love you more.

Mama was a good mother and a great sister indeed because at each point of meeting her, she was always a source of encouragement to anyone that came across her path. But today, she is no more but her memory still lives on, we love you but God loves you most. Rest in peace Mama until the ressurection day when we shall see again  by God's grace and power. See Dan 12:2, Jn 5:28-29. Etu Tedlyn Omonemu.

For all the times I used to worry you would always be on my side.From the day that you first held me in your arms to the time that you leave my arms I will always love you.You taught me how to read and write,you would always call me baby baby now who will be calling me baby baby? You would always ask me to look after your baby. I am now regretting all the moments I missed with you.You now and forever will always be in a safe place in the heart . Love you forever grandma ❤️

Oh my friend, my friends mama, I met you in UK when you used to visit your daughter Oro and her family. What a lovely wonderful mama. We will miss you terribly. Its unbelievable that you are no more. Mama RIP
Posted by Tese Akpofure on July 7, 2021
Mama, it still feels unreal. Sometimes I just wish you can come back. I just wish I spoke to you longer during our last conversation. I wish I called you more often. I wish I held you longer the last time I saw you.
You said I should read and write my test and that it was going to be ok but God understands best. I'm home now and whilst going through your things, several memories flash back. From the Urhobo classes, to the soup we look forward to when we travel, to the pekere you'd definitely buy when you're coming to our place, to the goodies you'd put in daddy's boot when he travels, to the beautiful names you gave all of us and most importantly all the time you spent as my roommate.
I've cried. I've thought of several things but I know you're resting in a better place. It's just so bad I didn't get to see you just before you left. Saying I'd miss you is an understatement. I think of you all the time. Right now I'm crying but I know we shouldn't weep because you're resting well.
On the sleepless roads, the sleepless go. May angels lead you in.
Rest in power Grandma. Love you forever ❤️

My mother! My mother! Oni Edirin! The thought and the fact that you have left us make me weep often and on. I wish, I wish it never happened. I still find myself praying that you come back. I wish! I wish! I wish .....
Posted by Oro Ebomwonyi on July 5, 2021
Oni Emete, my mother and love. Gone too soon, gone too soon. Life is like a mirage. It can never be the same without you mama. Every time I think about you, a part of me weeps. Mama Lucky, you were my pillar and a rock mother. I loved you but God loves you best, if there be a second Life I pray God that I should come back as your daughter. Rest in God's presence, mother of ALL

Gone too soon, but forever in our hearts.

I can still picture you in middle age, living not too far from my Church and home. It is just like yesterday. Can't believe that time has passed so quickly...and hat you are gone forever.

Rest in the bossom of the Lord Mama.
