Wow! it's 5:30 am UK time and the thought of you crossed my mind as it always does but in a different way today... still a very difficult pill to swallow. Sometimes I physically pinch myself to ascertain I'm fully awake and not in a dream whenever such thoughts cross my mind. Dear, continue to rest.. it's a crazy world with strange happenings around us. God knows best.

 Mama as fondly called was a very good friend, we were in Immaculate together in junior class before she changed her school in J.S.S.3. I had always hoped I would meet her again someday but my dream was dashed today when I heard of her death. May your soul rest in perfect peace Olawunmi Ogunkelu. I will always remember those days that we would trek to your home in Mende from school and the days that we were always hanging out together as kids. You will fondly be remembered.

Hello sis, visited where you were laid to rest. I placed flowers to beautify the grave. Today makes it one year since you departed. I want to thank you for all the things you left behind. They were things of great value. Most importantly you were of great value to our family. You had a kind heart and generous soul. I miss you dearly. I know you are in the presence of the Almighty.

 A year later and I still wish I could turn back the hands of time to see you again, laugh with you again, gist again, travel again and so much more. They say time heals all wounds, but I still question that saying. The void your passing has created is yet to be filled and will never be filled because you are replaceable. Dear sis I miss you and I haven't gotten enough words to describe the emptiness. The many whys are still in my head and I dont have answers. One thing I know and believe is that God called you home when he was ready for you. Our times are definitely not his, neither are our plans. You are missed so dearly. I space out at times just thinking of you and things you did. Thank you for being who you were, loving and kind. I am thanksful to God because he has given us strength. Sis, continue to rest in perfect peace. I love you.

 It's a new Month today and the thought of you crossed my mind again as it always does... I just thought I'd visit again to wish you a happy new Month even though you are now in a much better place than us. Just for the record, I visit here every other week even though I don't leave a message, I take it like I'm visiting your graveside. You'll always be "Mama" as we fondly called you back in the day of Arowojobe Estate... "Iyawo Uchenna" as your mum would fondly tease... continue to rest dear. You are missed and loved by many. God continue to keep you in His bossom.

 Dear sis,

It's been a tough few months without you but there's never a day that passes by that I do not think of you. Many questions left unanswered that will unfortunately never get answered. I know you are in a better place now with our Lord Jesus Christ. Rest on sis.

I am not sure what it is, but there is no day that passes by that the thought of you doesn't cross my mind. I have had to visit this site many times after I left you that message, each time I visit, I tell myself it is not true that this whole thing must be some crazy joke of some sort. but gradually, I am beginning to accept it that you have truly gone to the great beyond to be with your creator. Anyway, thanks for John 3 v 3 downwards... you were the one who taught me and my lil' sisters (that's if they can remember) what that verse in the Bible was all about... this was the period when you were still a student at IHCHS and you were always evangelising to those of us who were your neighbours and childhood friends. whatever happened after that doesn't really matter because you left a mark you probably won't remember... I miss those childhood days and you will always be my childhood "wife" as your mum always jokingly referred... God bless you and contiue to rest in the bosom of the LORD.

 Dear Olayemi: I know things are still really difficult at times for you...I recently lost a sister, and there is still such a void in my heart. So, I can truly understand the deep loss that you feel. But, please remember Rev.21:4 which reads,  and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. I hope that reflecting on the resurrection hope will give you solace and peace.

May peace and grace surround your family as they grieve the loss of you. You were a beautiful woman and I am sure now a beautiful angel!❤️ My son left this world very unexpectedly as well. I know the loss and emptiness felt Evan Carter 1987-2008

 Mama, I was out with a friend last night who's visiting from Nigeria and out of the blues he told me that you were no more... I was so much in shock that I made him call Nigeria to double check what he was telling me... lo and behold, it was true... I am so saddened by your demise because I remember in 2013 when I lost my only brother Kingsley, you tried to reach me on BB but the moment you realised that I wasn't reachable, you left messages with Bimbo and co. asking them to check up on me on facebook to make sure that i was alright... you were such a nice girl right from growing up days and I can't tell you how upset I am to... Anyway, God knows best and May your kind and gentle soul rest in peace. Amen! May God also grant your entire family the fortitude to bear the loss. RIP

 My deepest condolences to you. Losing a loved one who was so full of life just never seems justified. The grief death causes may never end with time but the closeness of family and friends can help soften the sting. Please know that your heavenly father is near to those broken at heart and he promises to end mourning, pain, and tears forever.

 My deepest condolences on the loss of your loved one.  She is very beautiful and intelligent...I say is and not was because she  still IS, although you cannot see her, she still IS. I will remember your family in my prayers.

 Dear sis, happy birthday! I know you are having the best birthday ever with the angels dancing around you. You are missed beyond words could ever describe. How I wish I could give you a call one more time. I miss you terribly. The other day, I almost gave you a call because i had not heard from you. As I was going to grab my phone, the reality hit me hard that I have not heard from you in a while because you are no longer with us. While that is true, I have you in my heart always and forever. Thank you for being a great sister and I am so thankful for all the times with spent together. Happy eternal birthday today sis. I love you...

Happy birthday sis. I truly miss you especially today. I took lovely flower arrangements to your grave site. I know you would have loved them if you could see it. Today is supposed to be a sad day, but I choose to be grateful to God for allowing me to experience a generous and wonderful big sister. You would have been 36 today but I enjoyed 28 good years with you. No day goes by that I don't think about you. I know we have done dinner tonight as usual. I still want to call you sometimes at 6pm because that was when we used to talk. However, I know you are in the presence of the Almighty. Continue to RIP

Happy birthday dear Mama! Gone too soon but forever remembered in our hearts. May God continue to strengthen and comfort the family now and always.

A Message for Dami - do not cry for she is in the most happiest and comforted place. Her heart saddens when she see you hurt. She wants you to be filled with joy in knowing that she is o.k.  Cry for a little while but Smile often. She is near you always.

I don't think i've accepted your passing, when the reality hits me that you aren't living I still cry

04-02-2016 7:18 AM -- By: Tolulope Ogunkelu Omogboyegun,  From: Illinois  

It hasn't been easy without you. I wish I could turn back the hands of time to reverse the saddest day of my life in January. I still can't believe, it's unreal. I get flashbacks to the last few days we spent together and I don't remember any warning signs that your days were limited. If God had shown it to me, there's no way I would have left you. I am very sad even now and I want God to rewrite your story. I am forever broken by your loss. Dear sis, you will always be in my heart, on my mind and in my thoughts. You can never be forgotten but remembered for who you were, selfless, loving and generous. I miss you... Sun re o

Wow April 1st! I woke up this morning thinking this month is your birth month and this is the year I wanted to do something or buy something special for you. I am not opportuned to do so. I am in tears right now just knowing April 15th isn't going to be the same. My son will never know you and that saddens my heart because you were there for me during the delivery and days after. I remember when u came from work to babysit so I could take a nap. I am forever grateful. I am even grateful for the times we didn't get along because somehow somehow we start talking again. I am happy I got to hold you and laugh with you the day before you passed. I just wish I was there to hold your hand and comfort you. God knows best. Forever in my heart Wums like I used to call you. I loved u when u were here, I love you now and forever. RIP

 Dearest Olayemi and Family: It saddens my heart to learn that you lost your beloved Olawunmi in death. Please know that you all are in my prayers, and I extend my condolences to all of you. At Rev. 21:4 it reads, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away".  So hold on to the hope in your hearts that one day soon, Olawunmi will walk up to you, she will live again, in the promised Resurrection, right here on earth.

Can't sleep, i still tear up when i think about you. I miss you.

03-15-2016 8:35 AM -- By: Tolulope Ogunkelu-Omogboyegun,  From: Illinois  

Dear sis, thoughts of you are forever present in my head and mind and so much reminds me of you. The other day, I went to pick up some yogurt and the expiration date was April 15 (your birthday). I sure am not looking forward to this years April 15 and it is because you aren't here. You are not reachable, which is a painful reminder that you traveled eternally. I miss you and it's been a pause every time I scroll past your name in my contacts. Why? Why? I could scream or be angry but I realize that in all things, give thanks. I am thankful to God for the short but sweet years you were here. I hope the sun shines very bright on April 15, that way I know you are smiling. Love you endlessly

03-02-2016 8:45 PM -- By: Tolu Ogunkelu-Omogboyegun,  From:  

Dear sister, it's Tope & I's birthday. Your absence is greatly felt today. No phone call or mail from you is another reality that you are no longer with us. I miss you dearly. I know you are looking down and smiling. Thank you for all those birthday mails and calls while you were here. Continue to rest in perfect peace. God truly knows best. Love you...
