Thank you for the gift of love.
Now you’re sharing it up above.
You had many things to say,
All in a caring way.
You always saw good in everyone,
No matter what they’ve done.
You were always the one we could all lean on,
Even though it must have felt like a ton.
You were always the strength of the family.
Now we must let you rest calmly.
We say goodbye,
As tears roll down our eyes.
I know your place in heaven has a good view.
You’re telling God
I need to keep an eye on a few.
I know you will always be in our hearts and minds.
So Grandma,
I must go, but I’ll never forget you’re one of a kind

Although I'm not a biological daughter, she always treated me as one. She was such a loving and caring person I've always felt welcomed even when Sola was not around. You left a touch in the lives of everyone you've met that would live on and I thank God for the opportunity of having had you in my life.

Tribute to our loving Aunty.
No matter how long our loved ones live, it is never long enough. Despite your long life, the news of your passing brought us shock and pain, but we are comforted knowing you are resting in the arms of God. We will never forget the love you showed us all especially during and after the death of our Mother, the pride and smile on your face everytime we came visiting was overwhelming.
Now you are with the Lord with no pain and lots of joy and happiness.
Aunty mi, Iya Bunmi Agunlejika as we fondly call you, you'll forever live in our hearts.
We bid you farewell till we meet again. Mrs Oke Theresa Yeside (Nee Idowu)

Words cannot express the way we all feel to have lost a dearest grandma and greatgrandma. It was an honor to have you in our lives and you have been a great blessings to our generation and generations to come. Just when we were about to come down and spend more gracious time with you, the lord took you to rest in his awesome presence. We love you but God loves you more. From me I say thank you for producing a rare gem like my mother who in return has being a blessing to her seeds. Rest on Grandma from me, husband and great grandchildren

My mum was my best friend and my confidant. It was indeed a wonderful privilege to be born and raised by such a woman of faith like my mum. Nothing moved her as she completely trusted in her God. When I came crying or in despair over any issue in my life, Mum would make the mountain in front of me look so small and God so big that I always ended up laughing about the challenges in my life with all fears disappearing.

Mum was a praying woman and a typical example of the Proverbs 31:10-31 virtuous woman. “All Her children arise and call her blessed and her husband also praises her.” “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

If you knew my mum, you would love her. She lived a life of love and showed love and care to people she came into contact with. When I was growing up, our house was like a hostel full of children from her siblings and from Dad’s family during school holidays. Cooking time was like a party with many mouths to feed. She served everyone lovingly with smiles on her face.

I hardly saw my mum getting annoyed or shouting at people. She was a rock you could depend upon. This is the most valuable legacy I received from her and which has led me to undertake mission work in the help of needy and the less privileged children in this country. I do this in honour of her kind heart.

I truly thank God for the privilege to be born by this remarkable woman. I openly declare that I am very proud to call this caring, selfless woman of God my mum and there is no one else that can replace her in my life.

Mum, I love you so much and I am missing you but I know you are in heaven and I will see you again. Theresa Osho, my dear mother, rest in peace!

My grandmother, my best friend, my secret keeper, my love I miss you so much. Remember the time that the both of us would lie on the bed and hold hands as if we don't want to let go of each other. I know you love me and I love you too; I wish you could come back to me and make me laugh, or hug me tight. But I'm glad I got to spend time with you before you went to sleep. My grandmother was caring, loving ,beautiful and a God fearing woman. She understands me more than anyone; she was never tired of working and that's one thing I love about her and she loves gisting with people. She's a very hard working woman , there's no one comparable to her. She's one in a million. I never thought I could cry for someone death but for her I cried but there's nothing we can do because the Lord has taken her to heaven. Rest in peace my lovely grandmother. I will always love you.

Dear Grandma,

Now that you're gone we feel the value of your presence in our lives. It's a known fact but truly you're the one who holds the family together. Grandma is gone and accepting that will be hard but it should not be a time of sadness. Celebration should come after grieving because Grandma is with the Lord and is at peace. It does not feel natural or normal to say RIP Grandma, but that's what she's doing right now, and exactly why we should be happy. Mrs Theresa Osho is resting on peace.

To the best woman in the world. I know this is selfish but I want you back on earth. You may be in a better place but I still want you back. I remember all the wonderful things you did for me. You will basically not eat until I have eaten. You were always active and you never sit still. You will either be cutting the grass, cooking or feeding cats. My dear grand mother I love and miss you. Even if you are in a better place I still want you back. Enjoy heaven. Rest in peace.
Love your favorite grandchild

My Mum my hero. Amumzie as u were fondly called. So the day have come to say goodnight but never good bye. Where do I start from. You came you saw and you conquered. You lived life to the fullest. Everyone that knows me knew you. You never missed a single weekend to come see us in school all the way from Lagos to Ikenne. My number one cheerleader. You believed in me. I remembered your sacrifice for me to go to Law School even when things were tight. Within the twinkle of an eye as if it's magic there is always food on the table. You were never tired. My prayer warrior. You taught me how to pray and believe . A loving grandma to my children. They will forever hold dear the values you taught them. I didn't have to worry about my children. You were the grandma people pray to have. Even with you not there anymore your whole neighborhood cannot stop talking about you. I missed all the gist. I missed all the fights . Mummy Osho, You loved your family. You sacrificed for us. Your were the center piece. The youngest but the mightiest. I will forever hold you dear in my heart. I miss you every day. Still can't believe u are gone. But I know on the resurrection day we shall meet again. Good night mum. I love you. Make sure you keep the mansions in heaven for us. You are now an Angel watching down from heaven. If Jesus tarry we will continue the journey from where you stopped. ❤️
Love from your daughter

No word can express the grief of your loss. Memories of your face, warm smile, large heart will forever be remembered. I am completely heartbroken that you are gone forever, it's so hard to face the reality. May your soul rest in peace. Goodnight ma.

Good night mummy. Though I hardly got to know you very closely but the sweet stories I heard about you are so inspiring. Thank God for a life well spent, the beautiful children and the family that you left behind.

May your soul continue to rest in peace, mummy. Rest in the bosom of The Lord until we meet to part no more.

My dear Mum, my mentor, my encourager, my prayers partner, my counsellor, my source of survival, words alone can not express how much I love you. You are so close to my heart and I miss you so much.
I could remember when I was waiting on the Lord, you encouraged me with the word of God, you stood by me till my joy was full. I miss you so much.
You are such a beautiful mother, always radiant and smiling even till the last day.
My mum is a friend to everyone, very accommodating and a prayer warrior. She never look down on anyone.
I really love you mum. I wish you could stay with us your children but God loves you more.
You will forever remain in my heart till we meet again at the feet of the Lord.
Good night Mum, continue to rest at the blossom of the Lord. I love you mum.

Tribute to my dearest second cousin – Mrs Theresa Osho:
Mrs Theresa Osho, still hard to believe you are gone! It is unbelievable, it is surprising, it’s like a dream. The news of your death came to me as a rude shock. Saying farewell to a special cousin, auntie, sister, friend I cherished so much is never an easy task.
You were one of the loveliest ladies I have ever known, Always so bubbly, so generous and had a smile that would light up the room. You’re a very special woman. It is so sad that you were taking from us so soon.
Although Mrs Theresa Osho is no longer with us, we shall all reminisce on all the wonderful times we had with her and know that her Saul is finally at rest and continue our lives knowing that she’s in a better place. It says in the Bible: John 11 verse 25 “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me though he may die yet he shall live!”
Finally I would just like to thank the Almighty God for her life and pray that the pain everyone is feeling at the moment fades away with time.
Auntie Theresa we all love you and miss you. May your soul rest in perfect peace.
From Mrs Jane Aina Lewis.

Rest on Grandma, I grew up adoring you.
I've always adored how much you love your family, and to be honest that will forever stick to me and inspire me to have that kind of love.
I wish that I saw you one last time, and I wish I got to say a proper goodbye,
I will make sure that one day to tell stories about you to my future kids. And I will tell them how much I wish they would've met you. But I know you're looking down on us and that you're finally in peace. Heaven gained an angel. I Love you Grandma

A life beautifully lived!!. On the Sands of time, you have left your footprint with Glory. It gladdens my heart that you are now with the Lord, resting in his blossom.

 Mummy, the few occasions l met with you, you showed and proved what a caring mother you were. Showing love to everyone that comes around you.

 I was looking forward to see you again, but it was a rude shock to hear that you passed on. We love you, but God loves you most.

Rest on Mummy!!

Tribute to my Dearest Aunty- Mrs. Theresa Osho.

    Mrs. Theresa Osho was my paternal aunty. What an Aunty! an elder sister and mother,very caring,exciting,full of life and vitality,ever smiling. I never witnessed her anger over any issue for long. My aunty was very accommodating with a Christ-like forgiving heart. She was not known for keeping grudges but noted for gathering family and relatives together.
   Aunty mi was a uniquely remarkable woman, Godly but not religious,she related with all with the love of Christ. She was my mentor and encourager,often she invited me from my home in Badagry for prayer meetings. She insisted we must consistently pray for our husbands and children and extended family.
   Ha! I should not miss the fact that despite her status in life,she never looked down on anybody, a very humble and generous woman. My beautiful aunty,Adieu.
Rest in the bosom of God.

Hmmmmm when I saw your picture on the WhatsApp profile of your daughter Pastor Mrs. Pauline Akingboye, I was amazed at the natural beauty you were endowed, though I don't know you in person, i think i met you once and time couldn't permit acquittance but I have this conviction in my spirit that you were a beautiful soul because I experience that through your daughter Pastor Mrs. Pauline Akingboye. Your passing on to glory wasn't a sad one, God called you home at a good old age. Rest on mummy,grandma, and greatgrandma.

Dear Grand Aunty,you will surely be missed. You cared for me very much while under your care. Your love and compassion for others was a virtue I admired greatly. You were always welcoming and full of life. Thank you so much for being a great mother to many. We will always love you.

Sweet mother. One day we will meet at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ to part no more. Sleep well Mummy Osho . God loves you more.
Posted by Daniel Akingboye on May 2, 2021
There’s no love like a mother’s. Her heart is filled with care. A mother’s love is endless. When needed by her children a mother’s love will shine. Mother’s dedicate their lives to caring and providing for their children both physically and emotionally. They always seem to know how to help them to overcome problems and thrive in spite of them. Mother, we love you and GOD almighty love you most. May your soul rest in perfect peace. Amen

Mum, in my heart you hold a special place because my life story will be incomplete without a mention of you.
Thank you mum for showing me unconditional love despite not being your biological daughter.
Thank you for being the channel for my everlasting joy. It’s so painful that I didn’t get to see you once again before your departure.
I love you dearly and in death I love you still.
Continue to sleep peacefully mum.❤️ U loads.

My dear mum. We call you mummy not only because you were our mother but because you stood as a source of survival of life for us.

You thought us how to love like Jesus did. We knew God through you as you introduced Jesus to us at a very tender age and this has remained a legacy that you left behind.

You were my best friend. You thought me to be totally dependent as a young girl growing up. You were that shoulder that carried many burden yet you never stopped smiling and praising God. I miss you so dearly but I rejoice in my heart because in no doubt I know you are with Jesus.

Good night mum. Your sweet memories lives on in our hearts ❤️❤️❤️

My mum was such a caring mum, a loving wife, fantastic sister, a beloved daughter and the best friend anyone could wish for.

My mum would sit down and listen to anything that people were saying. She had time for anyone and everyone.

Anyone would wish for a friend like my mum.

I miss you more than you know and my heart aches every time i remember you are gone.

Goodbye Mum.

Until we meet to part no more.
