I was saddened to hear of aunty Yetunde's passing last week. We'd spoken recently and it was so lovely to hear her gentle and sweet voice.

I remember the times when we would go and visit aunty and uncle at Iponri Estate after church, on Sundays in Lagos. As soon as we arrived she would always give me money to go over to one of their neighbours apartments to buy coke and biscuit for Nuhu and I. It was always so lovely.

Aunty is a sister that my mum held dear. They would speak on the phone regularly. On mummy's last visit to Lagos, she went to the depths of Badagry to ensure that she visited her Sisi Yetunde and I remember her telling me how much it meant to her to go on that trip. She would always speak so fondly of her Sisi Yetunde. Alas they are now together on the other side.

Rest well Aunty Yetunde.

My dear Yetunde, you were a woman of few words,and so I have found a beautiful poem that may suit your inner feelings.
" If tomorow starts without me
 and Im not there to see,
 If the sun should rise and find your eyes
 all filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you would n't cry
The way you did today,
Whilst thinking of the many things
We did n't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you
and each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too."
            DAVID ROMANO
Yes, " Mama Girls Brigade" we shall miss you indeed.
You have fought the good fight, you have finished
the race, now earn your deserved rest in the bosom of your Lord. Sun re o, Yetunde.
