Tribute BY Ayo & Dayo Banjoko

We still can’t believe we’re writing a tribute in honour of dear Aunty Tola. Words fail us in describing the shock and sadness we felt (and still feel) on receiving the news of her untimely demise.

Aunty Tola was a very good person. A most wonderful human being. Always willing to lend a helping hand, even when not convenient for her. No wonder she had numerous friends, “nieces” and “nephews” interspersed all over the world.

We’re grateful for knowing someone like Mummy Junior as she touched our lives positively, both individually and as a couple over the period of about 32 years we interacted.

Aunty Tola, we were so looking forward to June and September this year to celebrate with you two important events in your life, but death dealt us a bad hand. Your death is so painful to us, but who are we to question God? He knows best.

We’ll close this tribute with 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 which says “But we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, about those who have died, so that you may not grieve like other people who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so through Jesus God will bring those who have died with him.” (NIV)

With heavy hearts and tears in our eyes, Aunty Tola, we bid you farewell till we meet again at the feet of our Lord Jesus.

Fondly missed,
