Happy Birthday Mum, I am sure you are having a feast in Heaven, I know you are in a happy place but I miss you so much
Posted by Oluwabunmi Afolayan on June 1, 2021
Mummy, each day I realize how special you are and what you mean to every life you met, you left a print in our lives. Your funeral was a celebration anyone would wish for (some would ask their children/family do same when they’re gone), we made you proud and will always do. It’s first day of June this year, I still look forward to your birthday (15th June) like we always do. I will celebrate here the little way I can, just how you like it celebrated. It’s going to be your first celebration with the Angels. I’m comforted by the words everyone speaks and write to describe you. I can’t ask for a better woman to be my mother but you! I miss you, and I’m courageously holding strong. Keep resting my Pearl

Mummy I look forward to June 15th every year because it is always another opportunity to express my love for you, nobody ever steals the show that day, it is always your day of showering us with love and accolades despite the fact that it is your birthday,enough food to eat and take away. I can't just imagine that as another June 15th approaches you are no longer with us. I want you to know that day will always be a special day for me,celebrating your life here on earth while you celebrate with the Angels in heaven. Love you mama

Mummy, still difficult to blv you are no more but keeping solace in God that you've been selected as one of heaven's gains.
Still remembering the old memories we shared together: our chats, gist, outings and your dancing steps during Baba Oshodi Onibon's final burial at Igbara-odo in Ekiti and your usual call : "Segun, Omo-Eko"
Posted by Funmilola Folarin on May 7, 2021
Mummy your home going celebration says million about you. Thank you for the lives you touched while you are here, God bless you for being a good mother and a lover of God. Love you mum in life and after, you will surely be missed my Rare Gem

I had the privilege of being your neighbor for over eight years. Within that time, I came to know you as a pleasant, quiet, cheerful, humorous and caring lady. News of your passing was shocking and painful. You will be sorely missed. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace and may the good Lord preserve you in life eternal by His salvation, IJN.

Words fail me even up till now. Mummy you were very accommodating to me. You home was always open to me, your smile and arms always welcoming and embracing.
You have surely gone to met the Angels,because that is what you are.
Rest in Peace Mummy.

You were such a wonderful mother to all. The teachings and lessons you passed on to me as a child still lives with me.
I am sure you are in a better place mummy.
Your memories will always remain indelible in our hearts ❤️.

It was a terrible experience and a rude shock on the day my dear wife Ajike breathe her last. I have hoped and believe she would make it, but God had other plans, she was going to a heavenly home to rest forever with her creator. I can not control my years as I pen down this tribute about her. She was not only a wonderful wife and mother but she was meticulous house keeper, homemaker, submissive, cheerful and friendly. She love her church and faithful to her alloted task , she inspired me in ways I cannot explain. I have lost a worthy helpmate but I have nothing but happy memories of our over forty years of Life together. You were supposed to celebrate your birthday in few weeks before your death, the legacy you left behind would keep the the entire family going. I will continue to miss you dear wife but what can I do but to take solace in God, continue to rest in the bossom of God, sunre o Omo olure, lojisa, Adiue!

My dear sister, it was so shocking and heart-breaking when I heard the news that you were gone.
It is like a dream;I still believe that you could wake up, anyway at the resurrection of the saints.
The vacuum you left is too big to be filled.
You were a pillar that stood for defence and protection in the family.
You have affected many lives with your magnanimous gestures and immeasurable affections.
You played the dual roles of Father and Mother to your siblings since the departure of our Father.
Though I miss you but your memories will remain fresh in my heart forever.
May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
Goodnight sister mi Ajike Remilekun Margaret Afolayan.

I just want to with a few words express a heartfelt tribute. I'm writing heavy hearted but must express my deepest condolences to the family. while I can't say I knew Mummy fondly, I can say I knew of her by proxy being a childhood friend of Bunmi's and I'm grateful he shared endless stories of her generosity , kindness , strength and all round standup amazing person mummy was while she was here with us.

Rest in God's love Mama

Mummy was a good person. She was lived a life worthy of emulation. I remember she was also a disciplinarian who didn't tolerate sluggishness or cheating. I miss her smile and the way she talks quietly....Mummy Aunty Funmi is what I call her. May she rest well on the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Posted by Abimbola Olowofela-Opadey... on April 25, 2021
Aunty Ajike, It was always a joy to see you. You had an infectious laugh, a dry wit and a large heart. There was never a dull moment when you were around. We will surely miss you but Heaven has gained an angel. Sleep on in the bosom of the Lord.

The love of a grandma is unique. God must have given grandmothers to us to liven up our lives, to make our lives more complete, to make us well rounded and better human beings. When you carried me close to your heart, and prayed for me, I never knew that was the last time I'll hear your voice. Rest on grandma ma I love and miss you!

Taní nbá fí mama wé...
Looking at how the journey began with you from womb days to final breath, all I can say is God has been kind to me(us) to have you as a mother "Àbiyámó otíto". It's been God's grace that has kept you radiant and strong at heart thus far, over Seven decades and still waxing strong both in faith and good health till God called you home. God has truly been mindful of me (us). It wasn't easy but it's truly worth it with you as our mother, couldn't ask for anything more than a Woman-man (Obírin bí Okunrín) like Margaret Oluremi Ajike.
My mouth is full of praises to God and heart full of gratitude that you stood up for us without wavering during the turbulent times. Mothers like you are rarely hard to find and those that have them are divinely blessed from above. Thank you for the years of devotion, prayers & fasting, labour, sacrifices, your care and concern, your love, words of comfort and encouragement and everything that you have done for me (us). I know you are in a much better place. I will be forever grateful and thankful that you are a good mother

The shock is palpable.
You are lived and sorely missed, reminiscent of great memories of you. The Lord comfort the entire family, give the fortitude to bear this loss and fill the vacuum. Amen.

Odin aaji na si ra won. Amin

Rest in perfect peace, till we meet to part no more, the morning of resurrection.

You were a Aunt, a friend and mother to me and everybody. You were always there to defend n fight people's course, you hate others been oppressed or looked down on. You were such an hardworking, disciplined and fun to be with.
Oh, to say you wont be missed is an understatement.
May your soul rest in peace.
Posted by Adibite Augustine on April 23, 2021
What can I say, I wish words could express how much I miss you mommy, I really wish words can. This for me is the most painful part of this episode. I can only take comfort in the sweet memories you left in my heart. You use to call me "Omo Isobo" and I will look at my wife (your daughter) and say "Iyawo Isobo" and you will laugh.
I would call you "My Mommy, My Mommy" and you will call me "My son, My son"
I was the last addition to the family and you took me as if I have always been part of the family. You had/have a heart of gold, you cared for all and no one crossed path with you and won't forever remember you. I would end each call with you with "I love you" and you will always respond "I love you too"
Countless are the sweet memories mom, countless they are and I will forever cherish them. Though you are gone, I believe you are now in a better place to care for us as you have always done.
For want of a better word, I will just say "I love you mom" and I know you are saying same to me as you have always done and, thank you for everything.

Madam Ajike Afolayan, you were such a wonderful person easy to walk with. It's with great pain we received your passing to glory. What can we say, we cannot question God. My sincere prayer is that God will protect and give your Children and all you left behind the fortitude to bear the loss. We shall all miss you our dearly beloved.
Rest in the bossom of the Lord for ever.

I remembered when I was first introduced to you as part of the family, I remembered the warm welcome, the smile and pounded yam and the egusi soup I ate that day, all these still remains the part of the memories you left behind. You may not have gotten the opportunity to spend much time with us but the little time you spent was a beautiful one. We will always remember you, we will keep missing you mama.

We love you. Rest in peace mama.

Mummy meant many things to different people and this is because of her loving, caring, hardworking, humorous and accommodating way of life. She's a passionate figure of strength which she exhibited in whatever she believed in and never waned in her support for people's uplift. Even in trying and tough moments, mummy soldiered on.

Personally, I'll miss her humor.

Surely, not what we wanted but she's definitely a heaven's gain.

Mummy, adieu ma!!!
Posted by Abimbola Omiyale on April 22, 2021
Death is the necessary end of every mortal, but you left your footprint on the sand of time. Your light was extinguished when you are still giving light to a lot of people. You came ,You saw, and You conquered . Sleep on mum.
Posted by Adesola Akinola on April 22, 2021
I loved the way her friendship was with my mom(Margie and Moni)The friendship was like when they were young, pure and sweet... the “yabs “and all. It was always fun when they were both around themselves.
I know you will tell Moni so many sweet stuffs about us when you meet her.

We love ❤️ and will always miss you.
Rest in Perfect Peace ma!

Mum will be greatly missed by so many she lived and loved to her capacity.
Rest in peace mum!
Posted by Funmi Akinola Dada on April 22, 2021
Mummy was not nice, she was kind! I say "not nice" because nice is what you are when you want people to applaud you for being good, but kind is inate. It's doing good whether it's convenient for you or not. She did things without expecting anything in return.
 She was there for me when I needed her. She was kind and generous, but never suffered fools gladly!
 I'm sure people around her will miss her dry/wicked sense of humor, as I do.
  As the saying goes "To live in the hearts of those you love is not to die", she is not dead because she lives on in our hearts❤
Posted by Niyi Akinola on April 22, 2021
.My Mom's best friend from childhood. Always energetic and fun to be with. Your care and love that you are always eager to show will surely be missed. I hope you two would have met again and continue from where you both stopped.
Till we meet to part no more, good night Ma.

Sisi Ajike as I fondly called you, your death was very devastating. You were a disciplined and well respected matriarch of the family ever ready to lend a helping hand to all. You were generous to a fault. You showed love and support especially to me. A lot of people had benefitted from your large kind heart. You shall be greatly missed but you will live forever in our hearts. May you rest in peace. Adieu till we meet to part no more. From Mrs Tinu Olowofela

My Rare Gem, it is still hard to accept the fact that I will not hear your voice nor see you again in this world. Mummy we had plans, dreams and words together, you always assure me that we will meet in peace with lots of good news to share.
This is too shocking and it is really hard to say goodbye my sweet mother
Posted by StLawrence Edenbridge on April 21, 2021
Dear Aunty Ajike,

You made your positive and unforgettable mark in the annal of history in our family, your family, the family of the church and in anyone who crossed your path.

You were so energetic and filled with joy. You laughter was second to none and your passion for growth around you was unmatched. You cared for your children and protected them with proper upbringing, admonitions and prayers

Speaking, talking or writing about you cannot be enough because you were free spirited, dedicated and truthful. Your Catholic faith never ceases to amaze me.

I shall personally miss you but I know God is holding you in the HILLOW OF HIS HANDS. I am so glad you received the last sacraments. You were anointed by a priest friend (Fr Peter Abatan), you participated wholeheartedly and received the Holy Communion.

Rest in peace dear Aunty Ajike. Omo Olure Omo Olojisa.

The day I got the news about your demise, I had a flash of you in my thoughts and I said a prayer for you. When I finally got the news, I only said you showed yourself to me because you truly love me Mum. You took me as a daughter and I will never trade that for anything. You stood by me since when I lost my mum, you attended all my occasions, you rented things to me for free almost all the time.

Mummy abiyamo toto, continue to sleep on. I will forever love you.
Posted by Solly Babs on April 20, 2021
The news of your death was a rude shock for me and my family, your smile was second to none, I have never seen you frown and am sure you will be smilling when you meet your creator.

Though it’s sad and unbelievable, but a beautiful soul has gone to rest. She is in a better place now free from pain, sickness and worries.
I don’t know mum very well, but today I heard a lot of highly commendable things about her and cannot but agree that she was a very good, wonderful and God fearing woman. I also knew and believed these things from what I know of my dear friend (her daughter). My friend is more like her mum than she realizes, her mum shared her compassion, love and also made everyone feel comfortable, mom will never be forgotten….Mummy continue to rest peace.

Beautiful woman, inside and out. She was a wonderful mother to her children and their friends and laid a strong foundation for everyone. I remembered when I went to tell her I was getting married and relocating, all she said still rings in my head. I can’t express how I feel writing this, but I know you are in a better place Grandma, I pray the good God will guide and protect all you left behind. Rest on Grandma. We love you but God loves you more..!
Posted by Oluwabunmi Afolayan on April 15, 2021
The most precious gift that birthed me, words can’t describe all you mean to me, how you cared for me and still care about me. Remembering the day you told me the story of my birth, the fight to bring me to this world. You’ve always been my Hero, and will forever be. I know you’re resting now, but I am missing you so much. Only if words or tears can bring you back, I’d sing all songs with my heart and would cry a river/ocean just to hold you again. I miss kissing every spot on your face, hugging you to hear you whisper “Oluwabunmi, I Love you My sweet son”, seeing that your calm soft smile gave me strength.
