I remember travelling on the same flight with you Dolly to aunty Simbo's 50th
We talked everything from politics to business to love and relationships.
I will always remember your solid advice in every area.
Ah you are gone too soon am confused bewildered and saddened that I couldn't continue to build on what we started.

All I can say is that you are loved ' you are highly thought of

Much love

Aunty Dolly...I have cried today that my head is pounding...I realise only now how much I took for granted that you will always be here. Memories have flooded back tenfold of how you would look after me in Grays and Chelmsford with Naija food, malt and relaxation for weekends away from uni when going home to Newcastle was too far. You truly provided a home away from home and yet I feel I didn’t spend enough time with you as I got older cos to me you would always be here. I imagined you would dance at my wedding as you did at Deji’s in Jos, I imagined you would help my mum pick lace, caterers, decorators for our side ensuring it would look chic and just keep her calm! I pray for the kind of love that you and Uncle Biodun have for each other. You took great pride in your role as a mother and wife and you did it with unwavering excellence for them, and that is a lesson you have taught me well. Even when I said ‘see you later Aunty Dolly’, I thought Aunty will get through this....tears flow as I write this cos I will truly miss you. May God be our Rock for us all during this time.

Wow!!! Dolapo, you were finally laid to rest today. The turnout is a testament to how much you were loved and impacted on people’s lives. I remember how we met many years ago through the Adeniyi’s. I was their guest at Ayomide’s christening, you were amazed at how I danced my heart out celebrating your bundle of joy, without meeting or knowing you, my response was I was happy to partake in your joy after hearing the story of your journey, and we became friends.
My last chat with you in Lakeside Zara some weeks before your passing to glory remains very fresh, I am glad we hugged and smiled at your cheeky adventure in the store.
Continue to rest in peace Dolapo

You will be missed. May the lord comfort Biodun and the boys. Our God is unquestionable. You have completed your race. You were a blessing to the world. Rest in peace.

My dearest Dolapo...although it has now been over 3 weeks since you passed on to glory, I am still in shock! It really is very, very sad and writing this is an exertion.

I vividly recall our last conversation in October when we spoke at length about your party. I look back at our days at Apata, your wedding, your sons' christening, barbeque at yours when you lived in Grays, our various telephone conversations during which we would gist about all sorts. I will forever cherish these memories.

You were kind, funny, full of life, fun-loving and always willing to share information. You will be terribly missed, my dear friend.

May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. I pray God watches over and comfort Biodun and the boys, your parents, Tolani and your aburos, and all of us your friends.

Sleep well, my dearest friend. Sleep well.

The news about your departure was a rude shock to me. How could death have taken you away? Sister Dolly, your memories will linger on forever, the way you say my name ”Bra Alex!” continues to echo in my ears, you will always stop by to say hello to me whenever you’re in City Center, hint me about great savings & deals going on in some of the shops, you were ever smiling, ready to help all the time. I was exposed to your good nature during my many dealings with you. You will always ask of my family., you’re truly an Angel, little did we know that your passage through this life will be for a short time.
We love you but God loves you more.

Dolly, you were truly beautiful inside out. From the first time we met in secondary school till the last time @ Dammy's wedding, your smile was true and sincere. You were caring and humble. My prayer is that the Almighty God will comfort Biodun, the boys and your parents. Sleep on beloved sister.
This tribute was added by Kemi Majekodunmi on December 31, 2019
Dolly! It’s hard having to do this. You were beautiful inside and out. Your eyes were so beautiful. You and Biodun had a way of making one feel so important. I pray the Lord comforts Biodun and the boys as well as strengthening your parents at this difficult time.
Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, I pray looking back at all the beautiful memories will help comfort them all for tomorrow.

Dear Dolapo, thanking the Lord for your life. Still very shocking to hear about your passing. You will be greatly missed and the fond memories you’ve had with your loved ones will live forever. The Lord will wrap his arms of love around your husband, children and loved ones and continue to comfort them in Jesus name. May your gentle soul rest in peace.

Sis Dolly,
It has been so difficult to come to terms with the fact that you are no longer with us. We hold you darely in our hearts and you will be greatly missed. 
You fought like a hero till you took your last breathe and you remained positive and hopeful. What a woman, a virtuous woman indeed. Extremely resourceful, kind hearted and a wonderful big sister. 

Keep resting our darling big sis. We love you!!!

Dearest Dolapo, really I'm short of words.
Dolapo ore mi atata lati igba ewe. Ore bi omo iya, ore ti o se fi inu tan, aduro ti ni ni ojo isoro, very intelligent, diligent , humble and very loyal.
Haaa! Iku seka, iku d'oro. If only my tears can wake you up Dolly.
I take solace in the fact that you're resting in the bosom of the Lord.
I pray that the Lord will comfort your entire families, the Church of God and we your friends in Jesus name.

Mrs Jayesimi, you were so graceful and lively. It’s so shocking to hear that you’ve gone... just like that?
I remember when you won the best dancer at the TKFC Charity dinner... you were so beautiful and danced like a queen.... you were so amazing! Well, what else can I say than to pray that the Almighty God grants you eternal rest. I pray to God to give your husband, your children, your parents, your siblings and friends the fortitude to bear this great loss. Goodbye beautiful Soul until we meet again to part no more .

Sister Dolapo,I have known you right from my childhood age to be a very generous, caring and down to earth sister. Wherever you are is no boring. You dont look down on people to elevate yourself. I was very surprise the day you came to my house with Ayomide, to enable Ayomide recorded his music with my son. You shared an unexpecting stories which i learnt a lot from, not knowing you are speaking in parables. You created a time to build Ayomide and Baba's relationship. To let you know, their friendship has being very cordial till present and i will watch them grow together to achieve their potentials. Rest on Sister; we love you but God love you most.

Sister Dolapo, we met through our kids because they attended the same school and later became close through my sister. You were one loyal and caring friend. You stood with my family through the good and bad times.
You loved me and was always happy to see me and I loved you too. I will miss you so much. May God comfort Brother Abby and the children and may He give them the strength and fortitude to bear this loss. Sis. D, continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord. I love you...

Dearest Abby, we cannot begin to imagine your pain, your grief and feeling of emptiness as you mourn the loss of your darling soulmate Dolly. Ps Segun and I were so saddened by the news. Reading all of these testimonies here makes one thing clear, Dolly was a beautiful soul, an amazing wife, mother and friend who gave her all. We pray that the God of all comfort comfort you and the boys on all sides and that the peace of God which passes all human understanding keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Be encouraged bro. Dolly’s wonderful legacy will live on through her children . We continue to lift you up in prayer. It is well!

To Dolly’s family , church family and friends ;

1Cor15:55-57 (MSG)
Then the saying will come true:
Death swallowed by triumphant Life!
Who got the last word, oh, Death?
Oh, Death, who’s afraid of you now?
It was sin that made death so frightening and law-code guilt that gave sin its leverage, its destructive power. But now in a single victorious stroke of Life, all three—sin, guilt, death—are gone, the gift of our Master, Jesus Christ. Thank God!

Dolly died in Christ and so the good news is we will see her again . She was an amazing daughter, sister and friend to us all. We pray for God’s strength , grace and wisdom as you stand with Abby to raise the boys and support the family in as many ways as the Lord will lead you . Earths loss is heavens gain !
Rest in perfect peace Dolapo!

Dolly, I met you through your husband. The day we met for the first time you related with me as if we have been friends for a very long time.
With you there is no pretence.

You say what you mean and you mean what you say. You were very sincere, wise , tolerant, God fearing and very decent.

I recall our tete-a-tete during the Dubai trip, it was fun and sincerity all through.

Your disposition towards the reconciliation process involving Biodun and one of our class mates really amazed me. You were very honest and did not ignite the already hot situation. You did not for once make any derogatory comment. You simply said the truth without any iota of bias.

Dolly your death has confirmed to me that once one's time is up there is little or nothing that prayer can do. Why? We prayed fervently consistently with faith. I hoped against hope but Alas the reality now dawned on me that you would have stayed longer but you had to yield to the outstretched arms of the Almighty God when HE beckoned to you.

You are simply unforgettable and will be dearly missed.

I got to know Dolapo through her best friend Bukky Kane. The time we spent together at a family holiday in the summer 2016 was memorable. Dolapo you were a pleasant and loving person to be around and you had so much to give. It's so sad to lose a gem like you. May your beautiful soul continue to rest in the bossom of the the Lord.

Dolly, as you're fondly called. You came, you loved and you conquered.

You were such a delight to be around. You were soooooo nice to a fault.

Whenever I see you Dolly, the first thing I see is your beautiful smile.

You're loved and you're such a blessing to people around you.

Sleep on Dolly. May your soul rest in peace. Amen
This tribute was added by Morenike Ajayi on December 20, 2019

Dear Dolly, in the short time I have got to know you ... you were always a delight to be around. I remember the last time I saw you at a mutual friend’s birthday, you were full of joy and dancing gbe body e. That’s the memory that I have of you pleasant, pretty and playful.

I pray that the Lord will strengthen and comfort the family, friends and loved ones you’ve left behind. Rest on dear beautiful sis.

Hmmm.........Auntie Dolly, you were the big sister I never had. You were always there for everything and at all times. I always asked if you never got tired because you were so full of energy and life that it's tough to process your exit. It is tough but we can't but submit to the will of our maker.

From Chief (Mrs.) Mosunmola Awodipe


My Beloved Oludolapo Omobolaji Jaiyesimi
Where do I start from to speak of your delightful character?
How much more do I say to show the pride I felt in having you as my adopted daughter?
 What words can ever describe how I feel? Or is the heavyweight on my chest sufficient enough to make me realize that I have lost a gem.
What emotion would adequately convey my pain or express my sorrow? None would bring you back to me, which is all I could ask or pray for. Alas! It cannot be done.
You, my child, were a great source of help whenever I visited London yearly for business most times, and for ten years, you took it upon yourself to take up the responsibility of being my chauffeur, tour guide and helper each time my containers were loaded with gift items for dispatch. You were a perfect hostess who patiently took care of my needs, took me sightseeing in places I had never been to and attended to my curiosity without complaint.
I make bold to say that you were a lover of people. You were very reliable with any given task and never complained about chores. Whenever I required of your assistance, I was always rest assured that you would deliver; that was how much I trusted your capabilities. I wish you could have lived many more years as you touched many lives, who would greatly miss you, but who am I to query God?
 Dear Dolapo, I love you but God loves you more.
Ayomide ati Fisayo

Esteemed Love,
Big mummy Mosun Awodipe

I met Dolly through her very dear friends Bukky and Yemisi. She had this big gorgeous eyeballs and the most beautiful, warm and endearing smile.

It's a terrible loss indeed but I have faith that she's in God's hands and pray that the family find solace in the many beautiful memories you've made over the years.

The words of the Bible say "Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted." 

Dolapo....gone but not forgotten.

It was shocking to hear about the passing away of Dolapo especially when just celebrating her 50th birthday. Saw her with Jaiye few months ago looking very vibrant and little did I know that it will be the last time to see her... She has gone to rest now but definitely not forgotten. May the Almighty Lord continue to look after the family she left behind. Rest in peace my sister. Jaiye.... take heart my brother, the Lord is your strength as I know how close you guys were. Let's just celebrate her life.

I met Dolapo through a very good friend
Within that short time is like we have known each other for ever. Dolapo you are such a loving human being, full of love and joy of thy Lord in your heart. My heart really want to ask God why? But his name is all knowing God. Kabi e kosi. No one can queries his Margesty.

Dolly, My Amazing Caring Wife/Mother, Beautiful, Fierce, Brave and Encouraging Friend/Sister. Life is too short. It's not enough. There are no words in which I can use to begin to explain the way I feel about your parting from us. All I know is God has gained one of the best angels and I know you are now in Heaven still looking down on us. Never thought I will be writing this message this soon, I have always had the vision that we will be celebrating my 60th Birthday together next year in Dubai as you are part of the organisers. I remembered last month I visited you at home, you showed me some paperworks of what I need and who to contact in Dubai, but in blink of an eye death came and dashed away these visions. You are always in our heart and memories. A wonderful soul had been taken away from us so soon.
Thank you for being who you were and for always gracing us with your love and support. The life you have lived on earth has touched so many people and the legacy you left behind is one to be followed. I will forever miss you, you may be gone but you will never be forgotten. The Holy Spirit will comfort your husband, Sons and the family at this sad period. Our thoughts are with them and we pray that God will strengthen and uphold them with His right hand of righteousness. It is well with them. Until we meet again. May your gentle soul continue to rest in perfect peace. ADIEU DOLAPO

In life, I loved you dearly, in death, I do the same.

You left me precious memories, your love is still my guide.

Rest in peace, beautiful soul Dolly!

Our dearest Dolapo Aka Dolly, a strong, hardworking, caring, generous and loving mother, wife, sister and friend. Dolly, you were larger than life. Always willing to celebrate your friends, distance was never an issue. We laughed, danced and took selfies together. I remember our trip to Nigeria 2 years ago and our trip to Malta in August this year. You were teaching me how to dance Gbese and so many memories of our good times we have had together. You were my go to for good caterers as well. You will be sorely missed, Dolly. Rest in the bosom of the Lord. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints " Psalm 116:15. Good night beautiful Dolly.

Sis Dolly,
Whilst we’ve known each other casually for years, we only recently got to build a relationship with each other. You were cheeky, fun, caring and loving. Your approach and attitude to life was to “take the bull by the horns”.
It’s comforting that you were a woman after God’s own heart and now resting in God’s bossom. Sun re o

Dolapo as I type this tribute I'm still finding it difficult to believe you are no longer with us. The last time we spoke was in October when I bumped into you at a friend's birthday.

Dolapo you have been good to so many people and as such you have left a good legacy.I pray the Lord welcomes you home with opened arms. May He comfort all your loved ones you left behind.
ADIEU Dolapo continue to rest in the bossom of the most high.

When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time — the way her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers. Gradually, you you begin to accumulate the parts of her that are gone...
It may take some time.. 

Dolly may the good Lord Grant you eternal rest and comfort your parents, husband and the boys..
I mourn with the head of this family ..Biodun whom I consider more a brother. Kind . Always happy to support and sincere. Words can not heal you pain brother. Your love for your wife and family will see you through this. We can not question God.. Hold on..

They say that memories are golden
Well that may be true
But we never wanted just memories
We always wanted you

It broke our hearts to see you go
God only takes the best
Why now, I guess we may never know
But he will give you eternal rest.
