Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in me will live, even though he dies, and whoever lives and believes in me, will never die (John 11: 25 & 26).
Our hearts were filled with sorrows upon hearing the sudden demise of our beloved mother who in diverse ways sacrificed herself for Christ, the children and grandchildren she left behind. 
Strong to the very end, Mama as we affectionately called you; was like a second mother us all. We wish that we could tell you we are not ready to let you go but you have already departed and our heart feel so low and empty. We miss that little sparkle that light up your eyes when we amused you during those challenging times. And we miss the sound of your voice, your laughter and your sighs during good times; dancing to your favourite songs like “Modesola you're a Queen ooh, Mama is a Good Girl and a Fine Girl”.
But most of all we miss the way you made us feel when you tease us with names like Omoko and sometimes admonished us for making you eat when you did not feel like doing so.
The love we shared was so strong and real, and there are others here who miss you too and they have gathered here today to show how much you will be missed. Your life touched so many people and we all want you to know that we love you and are filled with sadness and grief that you have left us so soon.
Mama's in her last days will say I'm going they are coming for me.
Being mortal, selfishly we don’t really want to say goodbye. So we wish you eternal peace knowing you are up there watching over us so we can feel your presence daily.
Mama Rest in Perfect Peace.

MUMMY, it's hard to accept your demise especially when I didn't have the chance to say goodbye. We often take life for granted and your death has made me reflect and put things in perspective. MUMMY, you may be gone but your memories, guidance, discipline and love which you have instilled in me LIVES on to live a life that you would be proud of. Sleep well MUMMY in the bossom of the almighty God.

A Transition to the Great Beyond which No man can Question or Argue.
Aunty Mode as I usually call Her has Finally Gone to Rest at the Bossom of The Lord.
She was An Inspiration to us the Soyege,s especially me in my Secondary school days in the Late 80,s @ FEGO (Federal Government College Ogbomosho, Oyo state Nigeria)
Such Vivid memories as she would bring well prepared White Rice,Garnished Stew and Some Herbal Kargasok Tea during visiting days with plenty of Positive Advise about Life to Myself and Ayotunde.
She has definitely lived a Good Life,Left an Indelible mark and Very Sweet Memories..
God Be with all she left Behind.

But am glad to witness a night before your last day on earth, I touch your hear and massage it, even gave you my last kiss on your neck which was 11/04/19 at 11p.m.
My Mummy ibadan you have your own ways of doing things, you are hard working and taught me how to do things as a woman. You and my Mum are like twins. You are in the hands of Elohim mum. We missed you Mum but you are in a better place. Rest in the bossom of almighty God Mummy. Good night and bye bye forever.

Sister, I am short of words because of a heavy heart and my eyes are full of uncontrollable tears. I could remember when you were still in service that we were living together in Abuja, you were very caring, loving, accommodating, dutiful, and faithful to people around you. When you where in Federal Ministry of  Education, Evaluation of Certificate Department, some people wanted to bribe you but you refused the money,  she told them that she is doing her work. When I came to  London you showed me all the church awards they gave to you. I will forever remember your sense of humour and the love you bestowed to me. To your children God will care for you and your family in Jesus name. May your soul rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus. Amen

Goodnight Yaluwa Amojujege.

"To say that the news of your demise came to me as a rude shock to me is an understatement. To some,you were adored but to me,you were loved. You were an erudite disciplinarian and life tutor.You were strict but trustworthy,humane and a friendly mentor.My Aunt! My Aunt !!Rest on.
Posted by Robert Radebe on May 7, 2019
Grandma, It's true that a light goes out in us all as we remember that gentle loving smile of yours. You really touched us with your warmth & kindness. But our lord decided it was time for his child to come home.
'There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born, a time to die, a time to mourn, a time to plant, a time to heal, a time to build, a time to embrace, a time to laugh, a time to dance' Ecclesiastes 3:1-5

Dearest Big Mummy,
The short time I spent under you played a huge role in shaping me
into the woman I am today. And I am thoroughly grateful for that .
You were kind, compassionate and considerate woman.Even as you were firm and principled in your dealings.
I mourn and also celebrate you because I know you 're in a better place, away from the world troubles.
May the Lord grant you eternal rest.
Adieu Mama.

Firstly, I thank God for a beautiful, kind and lovely soul that you were mummy Olubamiwo.
You came into our lives and immediately moved everything possible to meet us and eventually connected us to our lovely cousins. Without your perseverance, we probably wouldn't have met our cousins, and we definitely, wouldn't have formed the close bond we share today.
Thank you ma, for your love, advice and the motherly support you gave me.
Your spirit lives on in my cousins and your beautiful soul will always be remembered.
Happy memories lives forever and our little time together Will last as long as my memory will serve me.
May your beautiful soul rest in peace AMEN
Posted by Sibo Maponga on May 5, 2019 was a pleasure and an honour knowing you; through the love you showed to our friend your beloved daughter in law, we easily fell in love with you too, and you embraced us with an open heart. We will forever remember your smile and no doubt your legacy will live on through your well raised children. Thank you so much for who you were, we love you and wish you a peaceful sleep xxx
Posted by Emma Mhonda on May 5, 2019
Mama Mercy, Grandma...You shined in your role as mother in law to my beloved other mother in law I have known came close to you. You welcomed her and all of us who came along with her with the widest open arms. This includes my own family who just rave about sent them Christmas cards, birthday cards, lots of love. What I remember most is how you made me accepted, so loved, so appreciated. You radiated a warmth that was infinitely bigger than your frame. That big smile, that warm, welcoming voice will forever ring in our hearts. Thank you for being you. It’s not’s see you later grandma. May your soul rest in God’s eternal peace❤️
Love always

Mama Tayo or mummy as we always called her was our aunt, devoted and lovingly adored by her two siblings which included my late dad Pa John Akinjolire Ogunkamisi and my late uncle Akinrinsolu Ogunkamisi. She was their world because of her brilliance and international exposure. When she returned to Nigeria as an administrator in the Nigerian Customs, she found it worthy to secure a place for me as a clerical officer in that establishment. How can I forget her? Her sense of economics and management of resources is legendary and she made all to realise that one's destiny is in his hand with her often repeated words of "Na you sabi' meaning, "it's left for you what to do with your life" May God bless her soul for she made us to understand the society that we live in and how to take responsibility for our actions.. She will be forever missed. Adieu Aunty Mode till we meet at the feet of Jesus Christ.

Grandma I’ll forever be missing your voice calling out “Bella be quiet you” you always made me laugh even though you would be telling me off! I’m so thankful for the times that we spent together even the ones where there was no conversation as just sitting together was enough. Thank you for being my “go to” person whenever i was sad,bored or scared you were the one i would go to. Thank you for being a good role model to look up to i hope i make you proud with everything i do. Until we meet again i’ll continue to make you proud.
Rest in paradise grandma, forever loving you

Rest in perfect peace Grandma

Mummy Mercy.. a.k.a Grandma
Your love for the Lord was undeniable, in that your every conversation was punctuated by "we thank God"!
Indeed fought a good fight; you finished your race.... Thank you for your liquid love for the "Chief's" family
For what is mortal must be changed into what is immortal; what will die must be changed into what cannot die. So when this takes place, and the mortal has been changed into the immortal, then the scripture will come true: “Death is destroyed; victory is complete!”
1 Corinthians 15:53‭-‬54 GNB
Rest well Ma

Mummy Mercy, what an honour to have known you, I was undoubtedly the envy of my friends having such a beautiful mother in law who welcomed and loved unconditionally, I’d choose you again in a heartbeat if I could.
Unsurprisingly courageous till the end, you always held God in your heart. Thankyou for the lessons, even through the journey you remained thankful.
With a heavy heart it’s goodnight Ma, you are missed so much by all of us.
Rest in heavenly peace from Glory to Glory ‘Grandma’ #forever in our hearts.

My Aunty Mode, my dad’s cousin and “mummy Ibadan” as we used to call you.
“Emi omolegilegi omo chief lodugba” as you always called me; Aunty Mode where do I start? I am lost for words and still cannot believe you are gone You have left such a big gap that can never be filled within the whole family and you will surely be missed. Aunty Mode was a devoted wife, sister, loving mum and grand-mum who cherished her two sons, lovely daughter-in-law and granddaughter. She was a devoted Christian, always bringing happiness to anyone she’s in contact with and would always go the extra mile to help others. She was loved dearly by the whole family and was such a happy woman; I never saw Aunty Mode angry. I remember when she used to bring different types of goods to the UK to sell and she would always encourage me to sell them despite the fact I sometimes thought they were not saleable in the UK. However, Aunty Mode always came up with the right sales tactics to get all the goods sold. Aunty Mode was a business woman, hardworking and very enterprising, which is some of the qualities she has transferred to her children.
Aunty Mode I am going to miss your lovely smile, gentle nature, advice and especially your jokes and voice. I pray that the almighty God gives the whole family the strength to bear your loss. Much love Tayo and Ayotunde..May the Lord almighty grant you internal rest, until we meet again my dearest Aunty Mode. Amen.

Mum gave me life and never once asked for anything in return.
That was her secret you know; Always giving without expectations.
She was as constant as sunrise, the moon, the stars and boy I counted on her.
She helped me find my way most importantly through my formative years and made my laugh while doing it. Among a million things she taught me that charming smile. There some things only a mother can do. Miss you mum!
