Beloved, It’s been three years since Maami left us to be with the Lord. She is greatly missed, but we rejoice for the gift of eternal life through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please be encouraged and keep up your faith and hope in His promise for his glorious appearance. Thessalonians 4: 13-18 “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.” Maami, Rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ Akinwunmi & Omolara Abisogun, children and grandchildren

Maami, It’s been a year since you transitioned into Glory. The year went by so fast but your memories stay on. You are fondly remembered and greatly missed. I give God the Glory, honor and praise for His abiding Grace that has sustained us thus far. I also thank the Almighty father for blessing you with a long life. I cherish our time together and the memories of your strong faith in Jesus can never be forgotten. With faith you departed without fear knowing that to be away from the body is to be at home with the Lord. Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Today, we praise the Living God who is ever faithful and ever sure as we remember the triumphant exit of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. You are not lost in transit, but you landed peacefully in the bosom of your Lord and Savior. The Bible in Psalms 116:15, 'precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints'. As we all patiently wait for the coming of our Lord and Savior, we pray that we will constantly fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith. Maami, continue to sleep in the bosom of your LORD the Good Shepherd and Savior.

Maami, we remember you today as always since you left us about a year ago. We rejoiced with you this time last year when you turned 88 years old and we would have wished to do the same this year but we know that you are in a better place with better celebrations and continuous joy. We are glad and we celebrate you the more because we know that it is well with you. Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ until we meet to part no more.

Maami, since you left us about seven months ago, you've always been in our thoughts. We refer to you always because you were such an amazing creature; fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps. 134:14). The strong, vibrant, uncompromising legacies that you left behind are here and all around us as if you are still alive. Maami, continue to rest in the bosom of God Almighty until we meet to part no more

From: Grace Adebisi Fayombo Death be not proud, because you could not hold Maami down. Unfortunately, you could not kill all that she has done to make life for her loved ones a happier and more fulfilling one. You could not kill all her devotion and wonderful ways. Thus, the person that you thought you killed and overthrew did not die! You should be ashamed of yourself because you have failed! O death, where is thy victory? O grave, where is thy sting? (1 Corinthians 15:55). Hallelujah we have won the victory!
Posted by Adebisi Fayombo on 11th December 2013
From: Grace Adebisi Fayombo Growing up under the care of a good mother is one of life’s great blessings. Maami, since you passed on to a place better than ours few weeks ago, you've always been in our thoughts; we have always been guided by the moral codes you left behind and the fear of God that you instilled in us. Maami, we will forever miss you, rest in perfect peace until that day when we 'll meet to part no more. Maami, o daro, good night.

Adieu Maami Agba. You were there to instill discipline in the most loving way. One thing I will never forget is that you taught me how to dance. I remember the song "OMO KOOLU BAMBA" you put in the tune and I would start dancing. It took me a long time to know the difference between you and my mother, you both looked like twins then. It is most impossible to take one's leave with your Old School stories and experiences. Thank you for your labour of love over all of us. May your Soul Rest in Perfect Peace AMEN. . . .

Grace, May the God of your comfort carry you and your family through this period of bereavement. He is the God who is well able to bottle your tears, for He promises that weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Keep holding on to His unchanging hands.

You appeared some 88yrs ago, fulfilling the days of your life. You lived and rose beyond equals. Providence was bountifully generous to you, endowing you with a large heart that was loving and accommodating. All beneficiaries of your benevolence prayed for your longevity though non could alter the inevitable end. You left a great mark and we are all proud of you. Adieu mama.

Maami, just the fact that so many call you that-even us your grand children - shows how much of a motherly figure you were to us all. You were loving yet strong; strict yet caring. I remember the names you called me and the songs you sang every time I had the opportunity to come and see you. You will live forever in our hearts Maami. May your soul rest in perfect peace.
