    This is my mother. She did all she could to make sure I was successful. If you see me write, if you see me smile, if you see me cry or grumble, if you see me triumph over all human endeavors, this beautiful princess made it possible!

    Thanks for having my back, mother.

    Adieu Mama!!!

    Ademilola, Bunmi, Auntie Tutu, Dr. Bola Adekoya and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a very good woman. I remember for her strength, sincerity, forthrightness and love. She loved to celebrate her birthdays and I remember her unique sense of human because she always seem so serious, but don’t be fooled, was a lot of fun too. I hope that you all find comfort in the wonderful memories of your Mom. I pray that God would comfort and give you the strength to bear the pain of her loss.
    Take comfort in in the fact that she lived well and raised good children.
