Dear Mother,

A decade might seem like a long time but to me it’s just like a few days, the memories are fresh, I remember your struggles and your fight to stay alive, I remember praying to God every night to do all in His power to keep you alive, but I never knew He had a different plan. 

Letting you go was the hardest thing to do,I still feel the pain like it was yesterday, I miss the way you call my name Oluwatobiloba!! (smiles), I miss playing with your hair, I miss eating your delicious meals, I miss going to parties with you, I miss your natural body fragrance but most of all mom, I miss YOU! 

Oh! If only I could hug and kiss you one last time, the times we had together was short but it was the best time of my life and I’ll cherish those 16 years forever!

Your baby girl is becoming a woman and you played a major role in that, I’ll always strive to make you proud of me Morenike Adufe and I’ll give you the Twin children you always loved,so help me God.  

You’ll forever be in my heart ♥️ because no one can and will ever take your place. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MAMA!

Your last born, your baby of the house, Tobiloba Oyetunji.❤️

Of all the many blessings, however great or small, to have had you for a sister was the greatest one of all. 

It feels like yesterday, but it's been 10 years. We miss you, God knows.
Rest on!
Much love.

MOM it been 10 years!
Remembering YOU is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

You were a precious gift from God, so much beauty,grace,love and patience you possessed. You taught me so many things andtouched my heart in so many ways, your strength and smile even on dark days made me realise i have an angel beside me.

Mother, you heard God’s whisper,calling you home,you didnot want to leave me, I’d seen your fight. You loved us so much that you held on tight, until all your strength was gone, and you could no longer hold on . Finally you gave your hand to God and slipped away quietly without telling us goodbye. 




Keep resting on my truest love. I miss you so much that my heart aches

Mum, It's been 10years since your departure. 10 years just like yesterday! 

 You are on my mind today, but that's nothing new, you're always on my mind. 

I thought about you yesterday and days before that, 

I think of you in silence and most times I speak your name. All I have are pictures and memories of you.

You who did everything to give your children the best. You were strong from the beginning to the end, you never wanted to leave us.  Your heart was healthy towards both friends and foes, you  always amazed me, your heart was the purest! ☺

I remember the moment I received the news of your ascendance, my world caved in. My heart was torn into a million pieces , some were filled with heartache and pain, and several others died with you. Sleep eluded me. At nights when the world is fast asleep, alone and in tears I take a walk down memory lane, I am reminded daily of how much I miss you and wish you were still here.

I miss talking and gisting with you, I miss your meals, I miss going to the shop with you, I miss movie times with you, watching soccer with you was the funniest . 

Christmas has never been the same without you, I miss packaging Christmas hampers with you.

Ohh, how l miss you, Adufe!  I miss everything about you! I miss your smile, your laughter, your scolding, I could go on and on... 

Today Mum,  you are honored and celebrated like the Queen that you were and still are. 

Thank you for doing your very best to teach us even in those short years, Thank you for being our friend and the "Rod" when neccesary, thank you for being the shoulder we could lean on, Thank you for teaching us never to give up, Thank you for loving us unconditionally and for being an angel in disguise, protecting us always.

My only consolation is that I know God has you in his arms and that I have you in my heart. Rest on, my jewel of inestimable value,Till we meet to part no more.

I love you ♥️

Our mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt and friend was the sculpture of our hearts and the song beneath our voices.  She moved mountains with an unbearable spirit and undeniable love. She treasured our time together and we cherish everyday we were with her as well . Her smiles brightened our days and her hugs made everything right.  Her legacy is the love she left written on our hearts. Rest on sweet beautiful mooma until the broken chain will link again. We love you.
