"An angel came and took you by the hand,and said your place was ready in Heaven,far above.....And you had to leave behind,all those you dearly loved. You had so much to do......It still seems impossible that God was taking you. And though your life on earth is past,in Heaven it starts a new. you'll live for all eternity,just as God has promised you. And though you've walked through Heaven's gate. we are never far apart. For everytime we think of you, u're right here, deep withing our heart. Adieu Big Sis."

Remembering you today on your birthday. Sing on in the presence of your maker and lover of your soul."

"My dear sister loved and cherished,  your words of inspiration are never forgotten.  How do i capture my sister Toksie in a few words? I can’t. She cast so much light in so many ways, in lives of many.  Sis Toksie loved to dance and sing. Ever since I finally arrived in the UK in 1995, my sister was like my mum, driven and loving. You were always there when needed especially when things were hard for me.  I respect and love you.
There are no two of you in this world. You touched lives that you could never imagine in a very positive way.  I have have had the privilege, pride, joy of being Toksie's  brother and friend. The bond we had as siblings   was extraordinary. The uncountable times that you were there to support me when I felt down, I have lost count.  
I remember turning 30 and sis Toksie saying this is just the beginning you shall see many more birthdays you are blessed.
Sis toksie was always like the mini mum who everyone would have loved to have. she was there to advice, discipline and care for each and everyone of us.
She was always concerned when you were upset and showed genuine interest in what you were doing in your life. I love and respect you my dear sister.  

Olugbenga Michael Osinowo"

"A woman of so many qualities that exceeded the sum total of our collective ability to display the same traits in our lives and the way we touched others. A wonderful woman to behold that always wanted peace and love for those around her. You could not be in her presence and want to fight or argue with her. There was always something special about her from the very beginning.

Where do you start in talking about a woman of so many stripes and colours? The very fact this is being written is testament to her greatness. Those who knew her, remember the person who was selfless in her dealings with us all. Her qualities are too numerous to count. But we must do her justice and dignify her by stating those qualities. Our spoken and written words will resonate with her spirit in heaven.

She may be gone to the Lord, however, her spirit lives on in each and every one of us all. The manner in which her deeds contributed something to our lives is felt every time we speak about her times here with us. Her memories linger on, almost in a surreal state of being that can never die.

Some might say the following statement is a bit biased “that it is impossible to meet an angel in one’s own lifetime”, but it is the truth. However, God in his infinite mercy brought one to this earth to touch our lives in a Godly and spiritual way, her name “is” Olutokunbo Patricia Adegbite. The word “is” means her spirit lives on and it is her body the vessel which “was” sent here to be the physical representation of her.  

She always served the Lord dutifully, never forgetting her purpose here on earth. Even in death that purpose is still being reflected in us because through her we have being bound into one eternal covenant with God, the all knowing Jehovah. Is it not marvellous? Where there was sadness, one of her qualities was to bring happiness.

Her honesty knew no bounds that we can safely say with a big smile on our face. That is certainly one quality I will want to aspire too throughout   my life, so I too can become a shining example to others around me. She never shied away from telling us home truths no matter how painful.

She always sought to correct wrongs and make them right. She had her way of speaking with a soft voice that you always wanted to listen to at all times. She was a woman of her word. As a big sister and second mummy, she judged fairly and never with bias. You were either wrong or right.

Her compassion to others knew no limits. She helped those in need, without regard to herself. She went above and beyond to please those around her and always wanted to see people happy. She helped people, whether at work, in her nuclear or extended family, the places we lived in through the years and at church. This can be attested to by the tributes coming from far and wide, London to Nigeria.

On a more personal note, when I had my first child, it was my big sister who uttered these words, “Olu, it is well, do not worry I will always be here to support you”. At that moment when I thought this was going to be a huge challenge for me, she made it seem like it was nothing I could not handle and she was going to be there every step of the way. She kept that promise and it was her will that saw me through.

Olubowale Osinowo (Your brother and friend for eternity)"

"Go towards the Light..into the eternal now for there in its fullness do we find the way to joyful activity in the wonderful creation of our God. I know years have gone by since we last interacted but for the time we did, when we grew from babies to girls and then to women you were always a ray of sunshine. Journey on from this transient place may you be guided on your way. Much love to you."

"Tosksie,a beautiful lady inside out.
Your smile just lightened   the room.
You didn't   do things in half.
I remembered   how you used   to praise God. Encouraged   the choir to give Him His best. You also had a heart of people and used your testimony to encourage others.
Heaven has received another angel.
Praying for God's   peace and strength   for those left behind.
You will be missed Toksie."

In the little time I came to know you, one thing stood out and that was your love for God.

We share in their grief at this present time and pray that God almight comfort them. Truly lost for words.... RIP."

"Dearest Toksie, I am so so sorry this has happened and to hear of your transitioning.  I recall years back when we became friends in schools.... You had such a good and nice heart and a very interesting dress sense. I recall the matching earings, hairfuffles, bracelets and shoelaces you used to make. Great talent!! When you travelled abroad, I observed how you lived a God fearing life. You served God faithfully and used your talents for his glory. You were prayerful and steadfast. I am so proud to have known you and been your friend......  I am so so pained and sorry about everything you had to go through.  God knows best. But I am consoled because I know you are resting and worshipping in your fathers' bossom, in peace, love and glory... I'll never forget you, and will always remember you with the fondest memories. I will miss you but please keep well. God loves you most...."
