Yetunde, your passing away remains a shock! You had overcome much before! Only God understands! You were trully an angel, unique in your love, hospitality, generosity, friendliness, and devotion to God and your family. The Lord will take care of your husband and children. We remain thankful to God for you! Funmi & Dele Amosun (Cape Town)

"Yetunde was an outstanding PhD student @ the University of Ibadan when I joined the staff. A well respected young Christian, very humble, dedicated and diligent. In recent years, we met at the University of Lagos before I retired and we renewed contact. The news of her sickness shocked me. Indeed, on her last day, I prayed with her on the phone. Beloved, REST IN THE LORD.

You were very academically brilliant with a gentle and kind soul. Even though we were in separate houses in Queen’s School, I still remember your sweet way of saying hello to me. You were always close to God and I know that you have already met and embraced the Lord whom you loved so much. Sleep well, dear sister, until we meet again.

I am lucky to have met Mrs Taiwo just six months after I came to this great country. She and her husband constantly checked on me, to make sure I was okay at college. She offered me academic advice and took me to a Nigerian party in Kentucky, where I met other friends. The instant you met Mrs Taiwo, and her simple acts of kindness, you knew she was humble, smart, selfless and always

I never had the Opportunity to meet Aunty Yetunde T. But I feel like I know her. My Aunty Yewande Dina, talks about her so much. She must have been a gem of a Person This is a 'HUGE' loss. I know that God who loves her more than us, will let her gentle soul rest in peace. May God almighty take care of her husband and wonderful children and people that loved this wonderful woman.

There is no day that passes that I don't think of Auntie Yetunde. It is still so serile. She was a woman of great accomplishments and extremely humble. I loved her spoken English and great sense of humor. It is an honor to have known her. May her soul rest in perfect peace and may God comfort her family at this time and give them peace that passes all understanding, amen.

I had the privilege of working with Yetunde during her time with Lilly. She was such a wonderful person and will be sadly missed. Not often in this life are we lucky enough to meet someone with the character that she exhibited. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time and in the days to come.
