The Good Die Young

Some are bound to die young
By dying young a person stays young
in people’s memory.
If she burns brightly before she dies,
her brightness shines all the time

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Theresa A Williams

A Beautiful soul is never forgotten.

Ayoka, your life was a blessing

Your memory is a treasure

You are loved beyond words & missed beyond measure.

You will be remembered forever

Rest in perfect peace our dear one.

On Saturday 16/03/2019, I logged onto facebook to do my routine browsing when I came across the most devastating news. No, I thought- It can’t be. I switched to whatsapp to check if there was any corresponding message; lo & behold there were messages to confirm my worst nightmare- it was like the whole world had collapsed on me; it was the most excruciating pain ever felt in my entire life. But in accordance with 1 Thessalonians 5:18, in everything we give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning us. I had known Ayoka way back then in Freetown, Sierra Leone through a cousin of mine- Mrs Joyce Curtis-Hooke. We became very close when we met again in the UK & started exchanging visits between Yorkshire & London; she loved travelling & introduced me to a lot of places in England including Wakefield, Bristol, Swindon to name a few. Ayoka was a hard-working, intelligent, caring and very thoughtful person. She was very close to her friends and family; hence a people’s person. One of Ayoka’s best traits was peace-making & a forgiving spirit. She would stand up for anyone wherever possible; she was a great counsellor & would ensure that one feels better after her counselling session; she always found a place in her heart to forgive. She has always been there especially moments when I need a friend to lean on. One thing I will miss a lot is her checking calls, “enti una okay eh, ar sae mek ar call wae ar nor yeri from you”; she was such a lovely lady. Ayoka taught me a lot over the years- I learnt the value of friendship and how to balance career & family. I cannot put into words how much Ayoka meant to me & my family. She positively influenced my life in so many ways and I will miss her with all my heart. Today, I salute you Ayoka Thank you for your friendship You worked for a cause & not applause You lived life to express & not to impress You did not strive to make your presence noticed, but your absence felt And indeed your absence will be felt till the end of time. Rest in peace my darling & may light perpetual shine on you.

I cannot express how much I will miss you Ayoka Your shocking death is so unbearable, but I know you're in a better place now. You were such a pleasure to be with; I trusted & confided in you so much- you have created a massive space that no one will retake. I love you dear; how I wish I can turn the clock back to those memorable days. God will definitely give us the strength to accept that you are no more with us. Sleep on beloved, Sleep & take your rest.
