Tribute BY Olayinka Desalu Pirisola

Iku doro! Death couldn’t allow us express how much you meant to my family! We came in contact with you in April, 1997, when we got an apartment in your house on 41, Oladoyinbo street, Felele straight end. Ever since, Mummy Junior, aunty Told, Mummy! has been like a mother to me. Should I talk about how you stood by me during our first daughter’s delivery, Toni. You virtually carried me to your then factory on Delete straight end, monitored d progress of d labour before taking me to d Hospital where I delivered d baby girl. Through thick and thin you were always there! I love you courage, you were brave, you were a goal- getter! Thank you, Mummy for giving yourself out, always willing and ready to help! Olubowale, Yinka and d three daughters love you, dearly. I had planned to see you at Damilola’s wedding but God knows best. I know you are resting in His unfailing arms, which will keep you till we meet on d resurrection morning. Hmm! every of our plans to sit at our daughters weddings are no longer going to be. E se ma, e ku it e ku itoju mi, oko mi ati awon omo wa. Hide, Oyintanta, Dimeji and Damisukusuku! will never lack help, wherever, IJN. Sleep well, my beautiful, amiable, courageous, reliable mother of all. Av not come to terms that you are gone! Farewell Mummy, adieu Mummy Junior, o Daro, aunty Tola mi.Olubowale and Yinka Pirisola
