Regina Oluwakemi Akomolafe : Tribute. I thought it was not true when suddenly we heard that 'MAMA Titi' had passed on, oh yes like everyone would. But I wonder if any one would be remembered so fondly as you! Mama Titi, you were an elegant woman, full of virtue, ever smiling. You took no offence easily at wrongs done you..a perfect woman. May your gentle soul rest in Perfect Peace. Egbon, you will miss her very much. But your consolation is with God: take heart egbon. Adiu MAMA Titi..(from HRM, Oba Olusegun Akinbola)

Gone from us that smiling face,
The cheerful pleasant ways,
The heart that won so many friends,
In bygone, happy days.

A life made beautiful by kindly deeds,
A helping hand for others’ needs.
To a beautiful life,
Comes a happy end,
She died as she lived,
Everyone’s friend.

A BEAUTIFUL SOUL GOES HOME

It is with a deep sense of loss, but with total submission to the will of the Almighty, that we write this tribute in honour of our loving granny and matriarch, Mummy Ife, who has answered the final home call.

Her transition was a painful reminder of our mortality, because we had thought she would be with us for another decade, at least, having just celebrated her 80th birthday.
But, we are consoled that her beautiful soul is resting in the bosom of God because of her acts of piety, kindness and generosity. She was very pleasant and kind-hearted; an epitome of motherhood, community leader and a pillar of support to her loving husband, Daddy Akomolafe. Mummy Ife acted in loco parentis to my wife, then Seun Abe, whom she nurtured as a young girl for several years under her roof in Ile-Ife.  
My first meeting with Mummy started on a note of trepidation because she headed the family ‘panel’ that grilled me when my relationship with my wife was tilting towards the nuptial knot back then. But her calming motherly advice soon enlivened me and further reinforced my conviction that I had found a treasure.  
Fast forward, Mummy Ife showered undiluted love on my wife and children. She never wavered in her commitment to our well-being through regular calls, prayers and visits; notwithstanding our shortcomings of not reciprocating with commensurate frequency of calls. Not once did she remonstrate with us over this, because of her large heart and accommodating spirit. She would call, “Akins Major I’m calling to know how you and your family are fairing.”
Mummy Ife will be sorely missed by all of us, especially Daddy, whom we pray that God should strengthen and give the fortitude to bear the departure of his soul mate and confidant of more than 56 years! By sheer happenstance, Mummy Ife’s maiden name, Akomolafe, is the same as Daddy’s own surname, which further bonded them.
We love you, Mummy Ife, but the Almighty loves you more. Adieu!

Forever missed

I first met Mama Titi in 1972 when as a young lecturer, I started dating her niece, Kike Adebiyi. After the initial and justifiable doubt about my intentions towards her niece were dispelled, I was warmly welcomed into the home she shared with her husband, the widely respected Dr. Akomolafe. The rest as it is often said, is history as I got married to her niece a few years after that encounter.
Since then the relationship between Mama Titi and I had been one of mutual love and respect. She has transferred that love to all our children. She dotted on all the children who are now young adults in their own right as if they were her biological children. “Mummy road 23” (she and her husband lived on road 23 on the campus of the university) was the name they fondly called her during her lifetime. She took such delight in their welfare and progress. We will all miss her sorely. On my personal behalf and that of my wife and children, and indeed my entire extended family, I will like to wish her a peaceful rest in the bosom of her Creator. May her kind and loving soul rest in peace.

Grandma is a woman of substance and an elect lady that is in 3John 1 verse 1; she has raised biological and non related children as her own.
Her worth is far more than rubies. She is kindhearted, hospitable and strong.
A little wonder why she has many children hovering around her. Mamah gives with her heart not because she needs your appreciation but because it is her lifestyle; which is worthy of emulation. My friend is an evidence of a daughter she raised uprightly by the help of the Lord.
The few moments I had chance to meet her, I observed the aforementioned traits in her.
May she rest on the bosom of the Eternal God

Mother, how I wish I could still hear you call my name once again the way you used to call me"Ojo kekere". Your life was full of loving deeds and forever thoughtful of our special needs. But today, tomorrow and forever, I will always love and cherish you for we usually found hope and courage in just looking and hearing from you. Your words of encouragement has been so helpful to me and I will miss that a lot now that you are gone. Rest on mama, till we meet to part no more. ADIEU Yeye Omo. Stephen Ojo Abiodun (Nasco)

Iya Titi,

You were not just the proud biological mother of Titi, Femi, Babade, Gbenga and Adeolu. You were a mother to us all.

Your kindness and generosity mixed with your special brand of 'mischief' made you feel like a friend as well.

Always ready to lend yourself, your time, your resources to others, you were the gift that keeps on giving.

You will be fondly remembered by my parents and I, as the matriarch of the family that started off as mere neighbors but eventually became family to us.

May the good Lord rest your eternal soul in peace for all eternity. Amen.

Grandma, words cannot describe how much I loved you when you were with us and how much I'll miss you now that you are gone. I cried and was shocked when I heard of your death. I remember you always caring for us and asking after us. I remember the day you dressed me like I was going to the moon because I got beaten by rain. I remember you forcing us to eat beans and corn. You gave me my Abike oriki when I was asked to do a Yoruba assignment in school. You taught us so much. I can't believe that you are gone 120 was the deal. Rest well grandma in the bosom of our Lord. You lived a good long life. And you loved the Lord even to death. I love you so much grandma.

Eye R.O or Mummy Ife as we fondly call you. I have tried several times to pen down something since you passed on, but have not been able to.do so.
You were a mother full of strength and love. Your heart and home was opened to all and sundry.
Oh! How I enjoy the ride with you in your Peugeot 404 back then during the holidays, the memories which are still stuck with me till date.
Oh Mummy! Or Mafola like my father whom you loved so well do call you. Thank you for all you did.
Last year, at your 80th birthday, we had a deal. Painful, you couldn't wait to carry it out,but I know you are above, smiling down at us all.
You are in a better place now mummy. Our loss, heavens gain.
Goodnight Mummy

Proverbs 31: 10, 25-31

Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth no the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Mama Titi,
You were more than a mum to just Titi. You were our mum. Your opened up your home to us all while we were growing and had all the associated impatience of the youth. Your subtle way of guidance made me feel you were a 22nd century mum. Quite unique in those days. You will be thoroughly missed.

Sweet sweet Grandma Ife,

The only time I got to share with you was when you came to Lagos to look after my cousins-your grandchildren... I remember you being so kind, warm and full of smiles!

Though I didn't spend a lot of time with you, it feels like I did as I have always been around your children and relatives. I can say that they have unique qualities that can only be traced back to you...they would always open their doors (literally) to help anyone, ever so kind and warm, hardworking and prayerful to mention a few!

When I heard that you had passed away...I said to my mum that this is a huge loss but we find solace in the fact that you're now resting in bosom of the Almighty and free from the cares of this world...Sleep on ma!

Ayo's grandma as I fondly call you, you inspired me greatly with the love, care and generousity you showed to your grandkids, you were so interested in their overall well being like someone who just had a baby at an old age, even the security men of their institution know you; distance, failing health were no barriers to check up on your undergrad grandkids who have equally caring parents, but no, grandma you were there too. Boys were always waiting for the giant food flask filled with delicious meal which is readily available when you show up at their hostels. You're just too caring. I Remember editing Ayo's write up for your birthday program and he was lost of words to describe how much you mean to him, not to talk of Anjola's anger and cries when he couldn't attend and I consoled him he will surely be at your 85th. Little did we know you will be long gone before then. I took solace in the fact that your children took your wonderful virtues and that's what make you the outstanding woman you are. You stood out greatly among the many grandparent I have met. May God console grandpa, with whom you always make those "mother hen" trip and the rest of the family.

Grandma.

A wonderful woman with a great heart. You showed me love and care especially by feeding us your grandchildren every 5 minutes. You taught me the game of Ayò and I'd never forget that. I really would love to have the strength and motivation you showed each day, even when your health was deteriorating. 120years of age was the deal but I know God loves you more than to keep you in this unrighteous world and I forever remember my sweet and funny grandma. Rest in peace ma!

A Mother’s heart is the child’s classroom. We thank God everyday for Mama Olukemi Regina Akomolafe ( Mama Titi) who taught our friend ,Titi ,and her brothers through the years.

Mama taught the children to love God. She taught them endurance . Through her example they learnt to push on even when things seemed impossible.

Mama’s devotion to God and her love for her husband was absolute.

She lives on in our hearts. 
Sleep on in the bosom of our Savior  Jesus Christ whom you loved and served.

At times writing something like this is not as easy as one thinks it will be. There are so many memories surrounding mummy that picking one is hard. She always had a smile and a kind word for us all growing up, you were always welcome at her table or to sit and chat with her as if she was one of us and in truth she was our mum as well as one of us. Not a word of judgment ever passed against any of us as far as I can remember. She didn't condone all we did, but seeing never judged any of us.

We will truly miss you and it's my prayer that God comforts Dr. as we fondly call Daddy in Jesus name.

For ever with the Lord!
Amen; so let it be:
Life from the dead is in that word,
"This immortality.
Here in the body spent,
Absent from Him I roam,
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent
A day's march nearer home.
This Methodist hymn by James Montgomery, 1771-1854 reminds us that we are going to be with the Lord for ever. Mama has gone ahead of us to join the church triumphant to be with the Lord, she is free from all the challenges and troubles that abound here on earth.
Let us rejoice for her life on earth and a peaceful departure to be with the Lord. May we especially the Children of Mama be assured that on the resurrection morning, we shall see Mama face to face.
May her gentle soul rest in peace.

My Mummy, you left me suddenly. Shocked to read on media that you had gone home to rest.
A mother in a million. A woman of valor,Godlyand Christlike in behaviour. A great and noble woman like Deborah and Dorcas in the Bible. Full of passion. I will never forget your contributions towards my marital life, during the even and odd times you stood by me with all your strength.
Since I knew you 37 Years ago you took me as a Daughter not as a wife to your Late Coursin Simeon Omolayo Olufemi. You extended the love you had for him to me. You continued to look after the Family he left behind Actively. Also when His mother went home to rest You gave me All needed Support. Protected me like a mother Hen. My mother, a woman of principle full of WISDOM never accepted defeat. A woman of Faith ,Prayer Tank . Your role towards my Children's Education and Progress could not be forgotten. How will I forget you mother Your Good Deeds will continue to speak because You Had Left a Good Legacy for us. My Mother Rest In Peace.

Dear Grandma,
      I can’t begin to tell you the discomfort I feel from you passing away.
I have always adored how much you love your family, and to be honest with you that will forever stick to me and will always inspire me to have that kind of love.
      I will miss you everyday grandma, and there will not be a day that I will not think about you. I wish that I saw you one last time. I bless God for making me know you from my childhood to adult age, you taught me things no school could have ever taught me.
she was not strong physically, yet she wouldnt dare to miss Morning prayers
that's how much she loved God and
everything God related. Her body was weak but never a time she was lazy always up and doing to take care of her grown babies. My grandma is and will be my definition of a super woman”Not all heroes wear cape”
      You were never a rich woman, but the little you had you would rather share it with everyone around you. You are blessing to me and everyone you have come in contact with grandma.
  Grandma, mother ( because you cared for everyone as your child even if they were not biologically yours)
I miss you. You will forever remain in my heart.❤️

I know for a fact that I will never forget you and how much you've impacted my life. I promise to always keep your memory alive and all the things that you have taught me to become a better, loving, and humble person just like you are. I WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR KIND WORDS GRANDMA (SUN RE)

Mummy, what a loss! May your soul continue to rest in perfect peace. You are one of my better memories of living in the staff quarters in OAU back in the day. We used to call you 'mummy' Ilekeji' because you were truly a second mum to us. It was also a pleasure seeing you when you visited from North Caroline a couple of years ago and you were still the same wonderful, spirited, beautiful lady that you always were. My mum loved you so much! I remember you always being there for her. Whenever anything bad happened, she would send one of us over and you dropped everything and came over immediately. That's the kind of person you were and the type of love you showed. Always there; encouraging, loving and supporting. Dotun, Tinu and I gained two additional parents and five new siblings when you moved in front of us and we will be forever grateful. Your wonderful legacy will live on in your extended family. Daddy, sister Titi, Femi, Babade, Gbenga, and Adeolu, please take comfort in the fact that mummy has gone home to rest and she is at peace. She will always be with us - gone but never forgotten.

Mummy was our mother in our formative years at St John's Grammar School. She molded our life positively. Whenever we fall short character wise she will scold us and raised us to be the best at the end of it all. There is no way I will forget mummy because she played a major role in my life. Eternal rest grant her oh Lord.

You're indeed an awesome personality. I remember my days at OAU, you welcomed me with big arms and always stated that I'm part of the family. You soften every conversation with you with kind words and always believe in me. You thought me the essence of giving. We all know that you're a giver and kindhearted.
You are loved by many and you will always be in our hearts.

Mummy Ife,

...A mother and grandmother of distinct. You embraced everyone that came in contact with you, i only got to know you when i was admitted into OAU but you however showed me so much love and care like i was birthed by you.

I recall all your super efforts and supports from my admission days into OAU through my studies and your stern advise each time i come around the house for a visit during weekends, your love towards me was immeasurable, you always insist 95% of the time to drop me off in school when i came around, still tip me with some dollars in Naira notes for upkeep even after pampering me with pounded yam or amala (my favorites) each time i visit; honestly, those times were the only times i ate home-made foods for the whole of my 4year study, YOU WERE INDEED A SUPER GRANDMOTHER.

Mama, you shocked me when you showed up at my wedding inspite of your health condition then, i was thrown into awe when i looked back and saw you right there behind me, that was a golden moment that can never be forgotten and you whispered, "Tosin omo mi, mo ti so npe ko si ibi to ti fi shey igbeyawo e, ti mo ni wa si be" i felt HONORED.

Mummy ife, sun re ooooo, you lived a life worthy of understudy.......you are a rare gem and your words, deeds, advise will forever permeate my heart.

Goodnight MAMA RERE.

I first met you in 1980 at St John's Grammar School, Ile Ife as my English Language Teacher and Class Teacher. You planted the seed of hardwork in us; to the glory of God, the seed has become a mighty forest in many of us. You were beautiful and dazzling even to us little boys at that time and when I went through your later life pictures I am amazed that you retained the grace and candour till you took your last breathe here. You have left behind great legacy and your good works will pave way for your eternal rest.
My heart seated condolence to the entire family especially Babade, my colleague and school mate then. The family should rejoice, for the gift of a great mother like our dear MRS AKOMOLAFE. Rest well ma.

Mother of virtues, mother of grace ,mother of mercy, mother of hospitality and a mentor to all in Matrimonial Patriotism,religious sincerity, a blessing to humanity- Iya titit mi owon. This features and many more are the definition of Mrs Akomolafe, she possess all this characteristic and many more to mention but a few.
Death how I wish you are unstoppable, would have estopped you from taking away our dearly mother for she is to kind, caring, loving, generous and meeky. How could you have taken the only Dorcas that we all looked forward too! Oh! Death! If not for the call of Old age and the blessings of immortality of the good deed of our mother which is forever written in the heart of all men, I would have command thee to return to us our precious treasure that you took from us. 

Oh happy day, for a day a man shall be born and a day a man shall be put to rest. It is necessary that our mother should rest in the palace prepared for her in heaven by our heavenly father after much labour in the Lords vineyard. I will miss you mum, but I know you live on.

     There is a message in the Holy book (Quran) which say reports and sayings form friends and family after once demise can take one to either Heaven or hell

Never got angry or fought anyone.
Loved everyone with everything in her.
No amount of words can fill up this space saying everything that describes you.
No amount of tears can also bring you back.
Trying so hard to be strong for the other grandkids being the eldest grandchild but honestly don't know how to be grandma :(
I write this with so much ache in my heart and things that i would love to tell you in person.
This wasnt the plan granny but who am i to question God. You wanted to live to 120 and God did i love how confident you were everytime you said that, also be at my wedding and see your great grand kids.
Really wish i had more personal time and pictures with you.
Who's gonna ask if i've eaten and i love how you made sure everytime the grandkids visited you gave us whatever we always wanted.
There cant be any like you but i promise to never disappoint you and leave with with your gorgeous smile all the time while watching from the heavens above.
As much as we are celebrating your life I MISS YOU SO SO MUCH grandma.
I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND A DAY MORE.
Heaven gained another angel.

A TRIBUTE TO A MOTHER IN A MILLION
MRS R.O. AKOMOLAFE

Mii for mummy as I fondly called you and you would answer Atoyin yin
I don’t know where to start from.

Tears continue rolling from my eyes each moment I remember you have left us alone in Ile-Ife. I am pained to the marrow.The pride that we have a mummy at Eleyele-that was always there for us, our own family can never be quantified.

Words are insufficient to describe this kind hearted, lovely, beautiful in and out woman.
She was a giver to a fault-to all and sundry, a Dorcas of our time .
Since I met mummy in 1980 and till her demise I never for once doubted she was not my husband’s biological mother.
She treated my husband as her first child and this love she transferred to me and my children.
Her love for us was undiluted.
She never treated me as a wife but as a daughter.She filled the vacuum my mother in-law (her senior sister)created almost three decades ago.
She would want me to take something from her house each time I visited. "What do you want to eat? Go to the store take whatever you need" .
An epitome of a loving and caring mother.
Mummy I did not expect you would leave us so soon as your target was 120yrs.
Hmmm we have lost a gem in the family-Obinrin bi Okunrin -friend of old and young!
Our consolation is that you lived a fulfilled life and left a Legacy.
Rest well in the bosom of your creator until we meet at Jesus feet.

Mama TiTi,
I met you through the matrimony of our children. When I first met you, I saw that you were first, a Woman of God, a wife, a Mother then, you became my Family/Friend. Our talks were not very long, our smiles and kind gestures allowed our Spirits to connect which, transcended our level of communication into a universal language. Between us we shared a common thread. We both loved God, loved our children, and wanted the best for our families.

I remember when we went on the Mexican Riviera Cruise, your smile radiated joy, fun and excitement. I could see memories being made and stories being created to share with family and friends for years later. I enjoyed that time spent with you, it gave me a little more flavor, for who you really were.

I also remember celebrating your 70th Birthday. Daddy TiTi escorted you into the Party Room, and you looked absolutely Stunning in your cultured attire with your head piece in perfect balance. You looked like a Crowned Queen walking into that room.
Thank you for all your Prayers and warm greetings over the years. I will surely miss you but, I know I will see you again. Being absent from the body puts you in the presence of the Lord.

Mummy
You've known me since primary school and you became my guardian at St John's. You were always looking out for me at break time just to be sure I had eaten.
You told my late Dad you were tired of me being local champ in St John's, suggesting to him to change my school. I joined Moremi, stayed between your house and Orji's coaching centre for my GCE with Adeolu.
I remembered how you scolded me the first time Adeolu called me Polish in your presence.
Mama, you were a good mother, always looking out for others, ever blunt, ever caring.
I can only pray to God to grant you perfect peace.
To Sister Titi, Brother Femi, Babade my paddy, Gbenga and Adeolu my brother, I pray God console us all.
Rest in perfect peace Mama

Dear Granny,

In the stories I heard about you, you were a very loving and caring person. I also heard that you touched a lot of lives including my mom's life now even in death you are touching people and teaching us as an angel. One of the lessons you taught me and my family was that do not hold a grudge and keep our hearts open to all even your enemies. Down here everyone is sad and trying and wanting not to cry as if that would make it more real that it all ready is. We love you and know you are forever in our hearts.
Love, Josephine Akomolafe,
your granddaughter
XOXO

Mummy...... I hadn’t seen or spoken to you in so very long but your legacy lives on with me daily.

You inspired me greatly to be strong. I will always remember your strength, assertiveness, generosity, warmth, family focus... the list goes on.

Your love for your family and others always warms my heart and I strive to emulate this always.

Your warmth and love always made me feel welcome in your home and with your family and I will always look back on this with the warmest and the fondest of memories. You were a loving mother to your children and countless others with an energy and focus that can’t be rivalled.

Thank you for your love and kindness.
Thank you for all the great memories.
Thank you for having a positive impact.
Thank you for being an inspiration.

Your legacy lives on with all those you touched with your love and generosity.

My thoughts are with your loved ones who you leave behind.

Rest in peace with the Lord.

Mummy,
Really, you have left but I am who I am today because you took care of me. You saw me through my secondary and university days. Abiyamo tooto, you paid my WAEC fee when there was no hope to pay, when my path was rough your strenght and words kept me. Though I could not reward you, but mummy I am grateful to you forever. The last time I saw you in May 2019, I hugged you, little did I know it will be the last time with u. Iya Titi, I love u and am grateful to God for a life well spent. Good night Olukemi Regina Akomolafe

Mummy,

Nothing and no one could have prepared us for your departure. Memories of every time spent together, every discussion and stories you've shared with me will forever be in my heart. I thank God for the life you lived and thank you for being yourself at all times.

You will always hold a special place in our hearts. Rest in the bosom of the Lord.

An amazing woman is gone forever
The last I saw of Mummy was during her 80th Birthday in October, 2018. Although she aged graciously but with elegance. She looked so beautiful on that day with her mild make up. I never thought that would be last photograph to take with her. I knew her as a woman that love her children, Children's children with a passion and everyone that had a contact with her. She has a heart of gold and I was told that she touched many lives as a teacher. No wonder her children are successful in their various endeavours. She will be greatly missed but our assurance is that she is resting in the bosom of the Almighty God. May her repose RIP.
I empathize with Daddy Akomolafe and the entire family and pray that God will send a Comforter to fill the vacuum she had created. Please accept my condolences.

Though I never met you personally, the lives you touched, your good deeds, your lifestyle all glorified God Almighty. Your light brightened up people's lives and paths. I pray those you left behind find the strength and fortitude to bear the loss. May the good Lord bless and keep your soul in peace in mighty name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
