Funmi, you are missed today as always. Keep singing and dancing with the angels. I bet you are having a blast in heaven. I also figure that your planning and organizational skills have been put to good use there.

Hmmmm FG, its been over a week and the feeling of disbelief still steals over me. I find that I am struggling to accept you are no longer with us in body. The plans, the hopes........though I wish we had taken that group trip and done more in our part to impact society together, I take comfort you are in a better place and always with us in spirit.

Rest peacefully gentle soul, you were much loved and will never be forgotten.

Dearest Funmi George,
Just learnt of your death a few minutes ago and also learnt today that you were in my PDS 1997 set at LASU Epe . Am in total shock at this news!! I was introduced to you by Moriam Smith to patronize your frozen foods business and ever since, you have been my plug. Soft spoken, kind and a christian faithful. You will be sorely missed. I can't imagine the pain that your mum would be going through as you both were so close. Am comforted that you are in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Sun re o.

Funmi is one of the most kind and warm
-hearted persons i have ever met. Always willing to share a friend's burden and always smiling regardless of whatever the situation might be. She was a real gem. You left our lives too soon, but I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to share great moments with you. Rest easy in grace and love dear sis

Aunty Funmi,

As I think of you, the first thing that comes to my mind is your smile and your laugh. I also think of drinking 5Alive straight from the carton with a straw! You always radiated so much joy and light wherever you went and you always made people feel loved. It's painful to think you're not here with us anymore. Your beauty and your amazing voice will be missed. I know you're looking down on us from heaven. I will always treasure the time we spent together.Thank God for your life.
Posted by Jide Bossman on April 30, 2021
Funmi:

I remember you as a little girl who was always so chatty and sweet and welcoming. Fast forward to our adult lives and you were the same: sweet and welcoming. I remember my sporadic visits home and how when I ran into you at family functions you were always non-assuming and a joy to chat with; you always told me to call Femi and reconnect. We finally did…

I’m very sad that you are gone now and too soon too. I pray that your mom and dad, husband, brother and sister as well as the rest of your family take strength in knowing that you are at rest. You were much loved and will be sorely missed.

Sleep well, Lil’ Sister.
Posted by Femi Johnson on April 30, 2021
Funmi,

You were an angel, you were bold, you held on to your confidence in the face of adversity. I couldn't reminisce on the sweetest days during university without seeing your bold face. even though mine and yours were sets apart, your maturity closed the gap.

You were a woman who confronted shortcomings with grace. Although you have gone to be with the lord we would always remember you for your smile. you shared smile, you carried smile always. you were always the first to introduce yourself, you introduced us to the new friends because you attract them first, you were one of a kind. rest in the bosom of the lord till we meet again.

We would miss you.

Our amiable, loving, dependable, confident daughter OLUFUNMILAYO has left us without farewell. Your exit was very painful, shocking and unbelievable. Who are we to ask Why.
You have left me and your mother to mourn your demise. We can never forget you as long as we live. The wound inflicted will take time to heal but the Almighty God is our comforter. The role you played in the family during your life time can't be quantified. You have left an indelible mark never to be forgotten.
Good night and Good bye our darling daughter. We shall meet on the resurrection morning where we meet to part no more.
May your perfect and gentle soul rest in peace.
Daddy and Mummy.
Posted by Lara adadevoh on April 29, 2021

You have entered into your rest..You will be missed.. Sun re.
Posted by Dotun Adebayo on April 29, 2021
My dearest Funmi, you were a wonderful soul.....children loved you and adults trusted you. There was an infectious joy about you, nothing was too much trouble, you gave wholeheartedly and fully, asking for nothing in return.
 This is a real shock! Like a bad dream to awaken from....the truth is I know you are on the other side resting with Eledumare! But here, on this earth, a light has gone out.....never to shine on this side of heaven. Rest on dear till we meet again on the other side.
Posted by Adebiyi Khadijat on April 29, 2021
FG will surely be missed.
Posted by Dapo Tomori on April 28, 2021
Funmi was a force of nature. She was warm, vibrant and full of life. You simply felt her presence in a way that could not be ignored. She was kind, generous and the glue that bound many together.
I last saw her a couple of months ago. As is often the case, she came with food to feed a small army.

Below is her text message to me on Feb 27, 2021
“ You are welcome .Was great seeing you. Would keep intouch. May daddy's soul rest in prefect peace”

She sadly passed away 2 months after this text message. I promised to keep in touch ..... not knowing she would be with us for just another 8 weeks.

She was a beautiful soul. Her life was way too short. We miss her terribly and pray for God to Grant her eternal rest. Amen.
Posted by Adepholami Oshineye on April 28, 2021
Hnmmm FG: I appreciate God for making me to cross your path; I and my family cherish every moments, impacts and lots memories shared..... Funmi fondly calls me father-folami i miss you. How would MomooreOluwa forget you and the special families together on her first birthday... the best friend, wife, gist-partner to my HOD.. hey!! Oluwa o! Pls do the miracle you did for Lazarus for us and Funmi: she is a gold hearted personality
Look down o God with all our testimonies and perform our heart desires on Funmi, her love ones and her family. you created a vacum that will linger inside of me.
Posted by Precious Okunuga on April 28, 2021
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, Oluwafunmilayo George. Still in shock. gone too soon.......

Hmmm, all I know is that God knows.....

Olufunmilayo Temitope!!!
Our gists were always of the many things the future held for us.
When life threw you lemons, Olufunmilayo, you always made cool lemonades .
Unrelenting, forgiving and always giving of herself . Thank you for loving Oluwatoyin so. Yours was a life of impact. 
I remember your favorite spot in my house close to the a/c ......what a flood of memories as Molayo played with your hair and you rewarded him for a job well done.
Oremi......You and your hubby adopted my family as yours and you would go to any length just for us all to have great family moments at every available opportunity. .
Ah! Death, where is thy sting!!!!
This pain is indescribable!!!!
I just can't comprehend the thoughts of never seeing you again.
I am comforted that you died in Christ.
Life would never, ever remain the same without you Oremi. 
Sleep well dear daughter of Zion., till we meet at Jesus feet.
I love you Oremi.
Posted by Gbolaro Oshun on April 28, 2021
A people person to the core.

The news of your passing came as a rude shock. I kept thinking and thinking....how can someone who is so present and full of life be gone....but who are we to question your maker, who loves you just as you love him....and so much more.

It is comforting to know you're in a better place. Earth's loss, but heavens gain.

Till we meet again, goodnight Funmi.
Posted by ADEDAYO OGUNGBE on April 28, 2021
FG ,
  
I am here to celebrate your life
And the measure of its worth
And every single life you touched
While you were on this earth.
I wish to pay my last respects.
To thank you for your friendship
And all the memories we hold dear.
It’s been a privilege to have known you.
We were family, not just friends,
And we will carry you in spirit
Until we meet up once again.

Sweet Dreams

Aunty Funmi, I am still in shock of your demise!! Yemasa as you fondly called me; you were always happy, excited, optimistic, kind and a great dancer. You loved God and your light was glaring. I can't believe you are no longer here with us. I know you are now in a better place, nevertheless the void is absolute and the pain is deep.
I pray for your loved ones and the family you left behind, that the Lord will comfort and grant us peace.

You were such a blessing to all you came in touch with . So giving . You would go out of your way to solve everyone’s problems .
Feisty for anyone except yourself . Honest , so honest , totally without any guile .

I was so looking forward to seeing you on Monday . We would finally be able to catch up . I hadn’t seen you physically  for a while and I would finally give you the ointment I bought for you . The chocolate !! 
I ate long ago with your permission .
We had a lot to discuss . My plans, your plans . We would advise one another and meet again to discuss our victories , I thought . 
Not this time though !! God had need of his angel . My dearest Funmi , Funmi .

It just doesn't compute that you are gone.

Life is indeed a gift, here today and gone tomorrow. It's definitely not how long but the impact and memories we leave.

You have impacted many in a positive manner, for me I remember your bubbly jovial personality, and your jokes.

Rest in Peace, we take solace that God knows best.

Condolences to the George's, "Oluwa a gba akoso".

I have fond memories of growing up with Funmi back in the early 90's from Soul Winning Chapel. Funmi was always a pleasure to run into. With her warm smiles friendly hugs and cheerful disposition. It is shocking and sad but God willed it so. May her soul rest in peace
