2 years and still strongly in our memories. You will always be missed and never forgotten. Still remember your calm manner, beautiful smile and just pleasant sole. What you lacked in years you more than compensated in character. May God give us the ability to continue to bear your loss. May your family have the strength to hold on until one day when we "shall all be in one accord". God bless you and your soul, forever...

Funke, gone too soon. The Medilag jewel of a soul Two and half decades since we all thronged out Medilag New Great Hall Took our oat to "do no harm" Taking away with us great ideals  Walking out into the world unknown  Biding each other goodbye and goodluck Oblivious it was our last together  Our sojourn pulling apart thereof  Our ways diverting in this unforgiving world  Our hearts finding emerging new focus Many of the old memories dropped The special memories of Medilag, Idi-Araba surpressed The ideals of Idi-Araba many adandoned Clearly Funke did not Testimonies of Funke's life bear witness The words of many speak for themselves Funke held firmly to those great ideals Many have testified to her selflessness  Many speak of her unrivalled generosity  Her avid committment is consistently attested to Commited to friends, family and strangers  Committed to humanity  Committed to God; importantly so God will not abandon his own He prepared the passage for Funke God rekindled the ties and bonds of those great Medilag years Just in time for Funke's passing on A reunion which many thought was for later activities Could it be God's set up? The speed and enthusiasm of the Medilag reunion  It could only be God's set up Our coming together again just days before Funke's transition I believe this is God's set up And we now know better Yes a divine set for a special woman of God Funke, our Medilag rose You certainly lived a good and dedicated life Not just like a candle in the wind May your gentle soul rest in real perfect peace. We will never walk alone. Adieu my classmate, friend, colleague and Sister in the Lord  Farewell Funke. Really gone too soon. Adieu, the darling daughter of Jibowu. Till we meet to part no more.  -Kunle Ogunde

Funke, finally, I found the courage to write something here. The journey to accepting that you have left this realm was long and tortuous. Thank you for making me your friend. We did not see very often recently, but when we did, you once again were my 'Aunty Funke' and I was your 'niece'. I don't know how this our aunty-niece relationship started in Queens College, but it lasted over 30 years of our knowing each other. I will never forget you. I am so glad you are at rest with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. That's why I'm comforted and confident that we will see each other again. Bye Aunty.

You clearly touched many lives during your time in this life, a time that was cut much too short in the minds of all of us that knew you. I am glad to have trained with you those years past and I wish we could have met up at least one more time in this life. But I know you are resting in the bosom of the Lord, a thought that offers some consolation. Farewell gentle soul.

Dear Funke, it is amazing how time flew by since graduation. Even though that was the last time I saw you, I felt a sense of loss and sadness hearing about your sudden passing. May God send his Holy Spirit to comfort your family and loved ones. Rest in perfect peace.

Jives.....still remember seeing the news flash on my screen of 'the death of Funke' and I kept saying to myself please God not Jives only to open the thread and it was 'you'...Utter shock, darkness, disbelief, denial all at once. Kept thinking why all day....but we are mere mortals. Goodbye & rest in peace.........

Dear sister, It was a shocking news to hear considering your profession and your way of life. But i see this as a clear indication that the Almighty God love you most!!! Continue to rest in the blossom of your creator.

Posted by Anthonia Ibeme on 28th June 2016
Beloved Sister, I do not know you a lot; but i cannot forget in a hurry, the beautiful smile with which you greeted me each time our path crossed in the office. I wish i had spoken more to you and enjoyed more of those smiles; then perhaps i wouldn't feel this sad. Continue to rest in the Bosom of the Lord.
Posted by Kola Falayajo on 28th June 2016
Shocked!!! to say the least, when I heard yesterday. But then it is comforting to know that she is with the Lord, the memory of the Just is blessed. May God comfort, family, friends, colleagues, everyone affected.

Funke, You will forever be remembered. Adieu "my personal person" (as we call ourselves)
Posted by Oluwatoyin Adebanjo on 28th June 2016
Our own dear sister Funke, Who wont have something to say about you, it should be someone who never knew you because all those who knew you both from a distance or closely do have a lot to say about you. Your departure is indeed a sad one but the JOY in it is that you are with our Savior, Jesus Christ. We love you but God loves you more. Rest on sis till we meet to part no more. Amen. Oluwatoyin (Trinity Tabernacle)

You will be sorely missed. May God comfort and strengthen your family, friends and loved ones at this time. May God grant you eternal rest. Amen. (-Bola Fajems)
