if roses grow in heaven
Lord please pick a bunch for me
Place them in my mother's arms
and tell her they are from me
Tell her I love her and will miss her
and when she turns to smile
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile
Because remembering her is easy
I do it everyday
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away
rest in peace mummy

Mummy, I am back, it was the hunger of the nite that reawaken me to the reality to seek you mummy. Why couldn't you call me to pick my meal last nite as I have done for years? I asked rhetorically. My meal was a daily ritual that have bonded me to mummy. Mummy! mummy!! I yelled again, it is me Yemi! mummy, it is me, please wake up if you are sleeping, please wake up... where are you? The silence that greeted me was too deafening. Yes too grave to unlock. I inserted my keys to mummy's house I have visited every other day. It was deserted, empty and quiet. I felt alone and lonely, I ask myself again, could it be true that you are no more with us? I moved around in self denial of the impending reality of a loss of a diamond mother, a beautiful soul whose presence on this cruel earth is priceless. I kept searching for my mummy whose care and love I have enjoyed since I had known her. Brooding and moaning if it was true mummy has gone to rest. I take solace in her love and care which I will miss forever.

Mummy, you were the matriarch of our family, a rock, an inspiration and a teacher. 
It was almost impossible to accept the news of your passing. For days I couldn't understand, if that was truly the end of seeing and hearing you. It’s still too painful to relive anyway.
I reminisce about my very last few hours I was with you some years back, my conversation with you – the grieve and pain weighing heavily in my heart as the news of your demise got to me on that faithful Friday.
I never believed you would be gone this early, not so soon.
You were a goddess in your own right. You epitomised what it meant to be a woman and a queen. You personified absolute strength, and you did that ever so gracefully.
Through your subliminal teachings, I learned what the Sesotho adage “Mosadi o tshoara thipa ka bohale” really meant.
Growing up, I watched you display real power behind the throne whenever you’d open your mouth to speak.
As a child you showered me with gifts of joy, love, sweetness and acceptance, as I grew older you shared with me the gifts of dedication and attention to detail - knowing my priorities. As a young man you shared gifts of courage and strength. You showed me I could face my fears, even few weeks before your passing, you gave me much deeper gifts, gifts of self-reflection and self-inquiry.
I watched as you assumed the role of our family’s anchor with ease, ceaselessly nurturing the unity our late father initiated, constantly willing to listen, to reprimand and to repair severed ties. You were admired and respected for your fierce forthrightness by all; you called a spade a spade and an idiot, an idiot. An act which was however, never malicious; you were just a firm believer in unblemished honesty.
You taught me the essence of dignity. Mum would make you aware of her disapproval if your behaviour was appalling, but she was also the first person to commend you when you do well.
You were a deeply spiritual woman who did her best to raise us to be a God-fearing family. I saw how happy and proud you were seeing me being dedicated to God's work.
I realise how treasurable the values you instilled in me over the past years mum.
You gave me many gifts in my life - gifts that went far beyond the physical and material.
I will miss you forever,
Rest in peace mum.
Till we meet at the Saviour's feet.
Ó d'ìgb'óse
Your son,
Adelegan Ade' Adewumi.

There is no word to describe her value to all who crossed her path. She had a heart of gold and her compassion, humility and love were beyond human understanding. We will miss her love and care.

Tribute to Olori F.B Adewumi

Shared by Adewumi Ade' on June 2, 2019
To say good night is heavy but in total submission to God's Will, we bid u farewell mama. I have lived to have you as my mother, my teacher and my pillar of support. 
I will forever be grateful for your love, support and total acceptance. You helped me build my future. You accepted us all.... you made the load lighter when it seemed the whole world had crumbled right before me at my tender age.... 
You are indeed an icon; you inspired me to take my wheel and move without stopping, irrespective of the challenges I encounter in life.
What more can i say than what the Bible recorded in 2Tim. 4:7-8...
*"7 Emi ti jà ìja rere, emi ti pari ire-ije mi, emi ti pa igbagbọ́ mọ́:*
*8 Lati isisiyi lọ a fi ade ododo lelẹ fun mi, ti Oluwa, onidajọ ododo, yio fifun mi li ọjọ na, kì si iṣe kìki emi nikan, ṣugbọn pẹlu fun gbogbo awọn ti o ti fẹ ifarahàn rẹ̀."*
U indeed have a crown awaiting you.
You will forever live in my heart.


Continue to rest 
Till we meet to part no more

TRIBUTE TO A DEAR MOTHER

Shared by Adeola Adewumi on May 31, 2019

Bigmummy, the news of your death came as a rude shock to me.
I visited you last year December and I was happy to see you  strong and agile. I never knew you would be gone so soon.
You were an embodiment of sweetness. Your tender loving care and attention can't be measured, there's no replica of all the generosity shown by you.
You have a special gift of giving words of encouragement and putting smiles on our faces. Your constant gifts and prayers can't be compared.
Thank you for keeping the family together and for your many sacrifices mum.
You will forever be missed and cherished.
    Continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord.

Your daughter,

     Temitope Adeola Adewumi
