From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised...Ps 113:
Halleluya
How unprepared could one be for such news as we were when we learnt of your transition to eternal life January 26, 2019. Only days before had we reminisced on how we had had a beautiful time of celebration and bonding with you in Akure at Christmas... We were totally torn apart. If you'd been ill we would have understood your body was tired, but you weren't Ill.
Mummy you were strong, vibrant and full of life. I admired you...you had the kind of strength and energy I crave for my latter years. Sickness had no chance in your life. In fact, the word of life in your mouth seemed to give your body the fuel it needed to live on earth forever...! We never thought "Death" knew you existed so could ever visit you. But alas! You battled with him. Even as you struggled at those last moments still using one of your favourite scriptures "I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord" (Psalm 118:17 ) to contend for life at the final call, I'm convinced those words still generated the expected result for the moment. I believe you were translated from life to Life! I know you made it, Victorious!
Could I have wished for another Mother in law... No! Never! You were what I and my mum had prayed for before I met and married Olumide. Your prayers since I knew you have sustained us...and forever will. You prayed, you fasted and genuinely loved. Not once did you rebuke or accuse me of any misconduct. You'd always enquire in love...You made me comfortable with you. Mum, your good lives on... your legacies remain with us... the vacuum however is hard to fill. I and my fellow wives need to brace up and God will help us. You held the binding force in the family and i dare say what you left will ever be destroyed in Jesus's name. Your granddaughters.....your many, many girls haven't been able to accept this as real but the Holy Spirit will comfort us.
Sleep well Mummy, Sleep in the Peace that assures you that you completed your assignment... O d'aaro ma!
Your Daughter in law

Your demise was like a shock to me, I still read your WhatsApp message two days before the news of your death. Words, however kind, can't bring you back but we thank God for a life well spent. Continue to rest on..... We love you but God loves you more. Sun re o, yeye omo.

Queen of queens
Mother of mothers
Blessed Virtuous Woman
Bloodline of the Apostles
Mother, you finally surrendered your sword
My First Queen, you left me again
Why did you have to sacrifice so much?
Was it really worth it?
You had me yet you made a decision without me. I was all you needed after the Most High.
I'm not grieved because you won't see the many days of my Joy and Glory but I'm grieved because you didn't take full advantage of my Office. You underestimated me, your little Son.
I'm inconsolable now because you didn't allow me to show you the Ocean of Love I have for you, Mother.
In the words of the Preeminent One in the Heavens, Earth and the Grave, which says, "No greater Love has no one than to lay down his or her life for another", which you did the day you agreed.
I Joshua Israel, the same, Son of the Most High, commend your Soul and Spirit into Zion, the City of the KING, the assembly of the Elders and the innumerable company of Holy Angels.
In the Name above every other Name, the LORD ELOHIM OF HOSTS, Open unto her the gates of Zion, for I bear Witness She fulfilled the Law of Love. So be it.
I'll keep the Faith
I'll defend the Covenant
I'll speak of you forever
I'll always Love you

TRIBUTE TO MY GRANDMOTHER.
My Grandma Meant The World To Me.
Her Death Was One Of The Most Saddest Days For Me.
Though She Has Passed Away Unto The Lord Our God, She Still Remains Deep Down In My Heart.

DEAR GRANDMA I MOST LOVE YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS MISS YOU AND YOUR AKURE HOUSE.

​January 26th 2019 would ever remain the darkest day in my life. It was the day my dear mother, Deaconess Chief Mrs. Modupe Esther Akinyemi Nee Adekunbi JP, my hope, my all and all passed to eternal glory. Yet it was like a dream. Initially I didn’t believe it because you were not sick! But it dawned on me that all was not well when the news of her death was allover. Well-wishers and friends kept calling to condole me. It was shocking and unbelievable! But as a believer, I was still hopeful she would be a beneficiary of the miracle of resurrection. How wrong I was!
Mama, but when I visited the Mortuary, it finally dawned on me that you had transmogrified to the great beyond. It was your remains I saw, no longer the elegant, active, cheerful and welcoming mother that I knew. I greeted you severally without a response; without calling me those elegant pet names; without showering on me the usual accolades. Oh Mummy!
A woman who did everything within her capacity to give her children the best. You were strong from the beginning to the end. Principled, pragmatic and practical. You were very principled and pragmatic in your approach to things, this I took for wickedness until I grew up. You did not mind whose ox is goad as long as you played out the truth. Your heart was healthy towards both friends and foes. I believe you could have been a great political leader. A dutiful disciplinarian, you did not spare the rod. You lavishly and lovingly gave us a treat of the rod everyday. For this, am grateful. The very many rods have made me fit in the society. A woman of God said, if you do not discipline your children at home, the society will help you punish them. You did not leave us to be punished by society. For this, I say THANK YOU.
You and daddy never take a No for an answer when it came to our education. I remember my admission to one of SLT programs in FUTA you were sheding tears with me on the day of my resumption.
You never joked with your tithe. You never joked with your service in church. You never joked with your love for the saints.
A bridge builder, you brought everyone together. Always building impossible bridges and succeeding at it. Grandma, you had your own shortcomings just like any other human. If grandma has offended you in anyway, I sincerely ask for your pardon and forgiveness. If we the children have also offended you, we also ask for forgiveness. To err is human, to forgive, divine. Grandma, you are loved and cherished. My greatest joy and confidence is that we will meet again. Thank you Lord for making me pass through this Angel
I know the world is a stage and you came and played your part fantastically well. But like the good heavy weight fighter that you were, you left the stage when the ovation was loudest for which I am devastated. That is the more reason why my siblings and I are in ever flowing tears, that is why your friends from North to South, East and West are grieving.
But while we grieve on this side of the divide, in heaven, you are a “newborn.” The Angels are already rejoicing and are very happy to have you in the bosom of the Lord. Yet, I can hardly talk about you in the past, Iya sola. Oh death where is thy sting?
Mummy, you were my comforter and the great counselor, are simply the best mother anybody could have- loving, selfless, Godly, beautiful, disciplined, industrious and visionary. Though extremely caring but you never spared the rod to spoil us. You sacrificed your all to train all your children. I am the greatest beneficiary of your love and labour.
Now that you should be enjoying the fruit of your labour, death came knocking at your door! Why did you open the door without a fight, Mummy? Why did you go the way of all mortals without giving me notice? Mummy it was not your fault though, for I know you couldn’t have passed without putting up a fight; you only bowed to the supreme command of your maker!
But now that you are resting with your creator, who will take care of the orphans and widows under your care on earth? Who will replace you at Spring Of Life Bible Church/ BMG Church Akure?. You had two wishes: one to go to Jerusalem on Pilgrimage and secondly, to celebrate your 80th Birthday in grand style;
But our consolation is that you lived a great life of service to God and humanity, our consolation is that you have gone the way of all mortals, our consolation is that there is life after death, our consolation is that on planet Earth, you were a legend. Legends don’t die; they simply transfigure to the great beyond to continue with their good work. Rendering selfless service to God and humanity is your calling and this you are doing already in heaven.
Mama, as we lower your remains to mother Earth on April 19th, at your husband place of birth Efon Alaaye, I can not grieve in perpetuity for you thought me to always trust God and believe that He approves of all happenings in the affairs of man. But I will honor you in perpetuity; I will immortalize you in perpetuity! Mummy,
Mummy, I promise to live your dreams and uphold those profound ideals that made you the essentially quintessential Christian and Matriarch! So help me God! Grandma, greet my dad. I love you all. May your souls rest in peace Amin.

A kind and caring mother. I always bear in mind her care and love for me during my primary school days in Ibadan in the mid 1970s, taking me and caring for me as one of her children when she was at Olubi Memorial Primary School Ibadan then. I will never forget the day she took me (alongside my bosom friend) Segun through to Ibadan Grammar school for the Christ's School Ado Ekiti entrance examination in 1977, then I fully realised and knew I had a mother in her. What a painful loss?. May Mummy's Soul Rest in Peace.
