Mummy, mummy Tope, that was the name we Tope friends at Oyemekun Grammar school, Akure and later at Opebi rd, where Tope often accommodated us while looking for jobs or just resting after the Lagos hustle. Mummy was quite accommodating and always encouraging us to be patience. A very good and great woman in all ramifications. Good night mummy

I am honored to be loved and cared for in the past many decades of my life with you mom, auntie, best friend and my confidant. You were never too quick to fault me even when I am in default and fully aware of my wrong doings. Remember when were asked to chastise me in 2004 for not doing what people believe is right and your response was;"She's not liked because she is Aloba. People are just jealous, ride on my girl". The laughter we had that day and many after will continue to linger on my loving mom, aunt and confidant. I will continue to have your presence till eternity and forever be grateful for all the good times, stories, history, lectures, fun, the fresh food you always cook for me whenever I come home, our long conversations on May 12 yearly and the last one we had less than two weeks before your passing. Rest in perfect peace mom till we meet again and yes mother we shall surely meet again.

Mummy Oluwole, You memories remain fresh in my heart. Your office was my reading room in year 1 (Not sure you ever got to know this!). You were accommodating, enterprising, strong and intelligent. Your house was open to all, your office was a meeting room back in Unilag with both young and old. What a privilege to have known you. I am certain you live a fulfilled life. Rest on...

It is really difficult to write tribute of ones mother and guardian . who saw me through the difficulties of the world. Your death takes me down memory lane. Despite all the struggles, you left when we needed you most. She taught me how to cook garden egg soup Professor was a great disciplinarian who love education and hardworking mother. Every morning she wake up, she walk round her garden and visit her small farm in her compound. Their is something I will always remember about her is "time management". She respect time a lot. Oh! How strong is the grip of death ! It brings heroes to the grave! It takes mentors to a place of no return. Today your daughter Efosa Imhoaperamhe is married with a lovely son. Mama, professor, we miss your. R.I.P. till we meet again. Efosa Imhoaperamhe.

It's difficult to imagine you will lose someone so cerebral and deep rooted in knowledge across all spheres of life, yet submissive to the Almighty God and our Lord Jesus. When I first met her, I found it tough to understand her stand on faith, she however took me through philosophy of religion, Christian faith, about Ifa and some traditional beliefs of the African and how they reveal who Jesus is in their own understanding; she dealt with truth all the time without bias. She didn't suffer fools gladly yet she was a compassionate and very understanding personality who believed absolutely in transparency. I had the privilege of designing some of her book covers and alo edited some of her books. She was respectful and jolly to be with. Sad as it may be, I just have to say, goodnight ma.

Dear Grandma, When I was younger, my mom told me stories about you, about how wise you were, about your accomplishments. One story I remember in particular was when you did not complete the reading assignment but you were still able to get all the questions right on the assessment you had the following day. I remember being so impressed because if I had done the same thing, I would have definitely not had everything correct. Stories like those make me proud to have been named after you. A woman who embodied her name; wisdom. You were not only book smart, having gotten your PhD, but you raised my mother and aunts and uncles well. One can see how you instilled in them many moral values and life lessons that they passed onto the next generation. Although I do not remember ever meeting you in person and only spoke to you over phone calls and WhatsApp facetime call, I still loved and continue to love you. I thank God that you have lived a fulfilling life and I now know you are home with Him. Your granddaughter, Sophia-Joy Agbelese

My memories of you, ma, would always be how comfortable you are in your identity, how powerful your intellect is, how generous your spirit is with wisdom and knowledge, how unique is a friendship with you! I sincerely thought of you as one of those that you could not walk away from, ignore or neglect! A rare precious gem! May the Lord comfort those you left behind and may they never have to feel your loss without rejoicing in the gift of your relationship with them as I do! Sleep well Ma!

Grandma, It’s one of those cases where I haven’t yet cried because my mind hasn’t understood what it’s like for grandma to be gone. Maybe it’s because I didn’t see you everyday, or maybe it’s because I didn’t hear your voice everyday; but the one thing I’m sure scared to do would be to visit Ibafo and then to see that place without you, or to see your body one last time. Those moments are moments I’m afraid of, for the tears that are coming are floods I fear. I love you grandma.

Mother Dear Mother! It's almost unbelievable that you've truly crossed over. You were almost superhuman even at that age! You exuded so much energy and it was hard to win an argument with you as almost every conversation was an intellectual discourse. You were an answer to my prayers long before thoughts of settling down in marriage came to mind. I asked God to give me a replacement for my biological mum whom He called to Himself when I was very young. In you, God answered and you fulfilled your role beautifully and defended me such that I had no doubt I was your daughter. Thank you mum for all you did and meant to me and indeed all of us. I remain eternally grateful, proud and joyful for the gift of you dear mother! You are truly irreplaceable and will be missed forever. Rest on mum. You truly deserve a good rest. Loving You Still, Your Daughter - Mope

My Mum Are you really gone, or I'm in a terrible dream? You mean I will never receive a call from you Mum? Who will I share my worries and issues with Mum? Who will give me HONEST unbiased answers Mum? Apart from The Lord Jesus Christ, you were the only one, Mum. Thank God for those three months we spent together at my place. What would I give, to take care of and stay with you all over? It was your characteristic way of saying goodbye, but I never knew. Even with your death , you didn't want to trouble us. No rushing to the hospital,no spending of a fortune. You went so quietly! With all that wisdom, Mum? What a loss!! To us as a family, to Nigeria, to the Yoruba race, to humanity. You had so many battles, and you faced and fought each gallantly. You left a wonderful name and legacy. We have you to look up to. At the end, in spite of it all, you made peace with your maker, what happiness! Just days before your departure, you asked God for forgiveness of your sins. What joy! That is our only consolation. No doubt, you are irreplaceable. To say I will miss you is the greatest understatement of all time. I love you Mum, and I pray to meet you in heaven. Sleep on beloved, you deserve a rest on The Lord's blossom.

The AFRICAN ROSE Mummy, my loving, warm, caring, precious mummy. Words fail me. I am still unable to verbalize how I feel. The emptiness your departure has caused. The words of wisdom I seek for and no one can give. The warmth that comes from hearing your voice on the phone. The happiness that your hugs give me. The joy in your smile and laughter. The pride I feel from your character: Your wittiness. Your patience. Your perseverance. Your liveliness. Your authenticity. Your pureness. Your veracity. Your wisdom. You are my AFRICAN ROSE. My heroine. Life won’t be the same without you but I’m comforted by my faith in God and his Word. I miss you mummy, everyday, every minute. I will forever continue to love you and honor your memory. Till we meet again. Your baby girl. Funmilola

My mom, undeniably my heroine You were gone too soon I find it difficult to write this tribute because words cannot express what you mean to me. I just wanted to wrap my arms around you one more time to tell how much I love and appreciate you but it was not to be... You were gone too soon I thank God I was able to spend so much quality time with you the last time I saw you: travelling, talking, singing, video taping, praying, sharing and so much more. I miss you so much but alas, I have to trust God's plan. Rest in your savior's bosom Sun re o iya mi owon
