I know you're in a restful place now big Aunty, and may God Almighty continue to grace you with eternal peace and rest.

I remember when we used to regularly come over to yours on weekends, lovely childhood memories that can never be forgotten.

You will be greatly missed big Aunty but your memories are imprinted in our hearts forever.

Rest on!

With all my heart,
Your Niece - Bunmi

It pained me that I never see you again after meeting you with my children in September 2019. Thank you for your hospitality ma'am. See you again on resurrection morning. Rest on Mama!

Moments in the home and company Mama Olayemi will always be sweet memories. I love her ability to transcend ages, encourage and open up even a introvert. What I will treasure the most will be the times I witness her great ability to intercede and pray on topic. I didn't have to tell her but she knew just what had been on my heart.

I only had the privilege of meeting Princess Olayemi a couple of times, but am thankful for having had those opportunities! She was a warm, hospitable and gracious elder sister in Christ. My prayers are with the family. Rest in peace!

On behalf of the entire members and leadership of Winners Chapel International Edinburgh, where our mummy Olayemi last worshipped, we extend our prayer of comfort and peace to her entire family.
Mummy was committed to prayers and intercession, and she always loved to be in church. She was close to my family and she will be missed. Rest on in glory

I had no idea that a princess was living downstairs from me !
She always had a glowing friendly smile and an air of benevolence about her. She was very fond of my daughter Alicia and would always have a treat ready for her whenever we passed by.
  I only knew her fleetingly and not for all that long, but my life was touched by her.
Blessings to you.

  Perfect piece of music to bid farewell to a very lovely lady.

I will never forget the sparkle, glamour and magnanimous heart when I first met you. I was in awe at meeting a real life princess! And by God you carried it well! Beautiful inside out, hardworking, and an inspiration to anyone who was blessed to cross paths with you. You have been a mother figure to me for decades. You are loved and we are blessed to have had you in our lives. May you rest in peace and guide us with your love from heaven our beautiful mother ❤❤❤

Mummy was a kind, peaceful and gentle woman. Her love for God was rare and that made her beautiful in a unique way. She will be sorely missed by my family for her calmness in everything! Our hearts are with Toyin and the entire Dosumu Laoshe family. Kemi&NiranAmosu
