I’ll miss you Mummy, My super Hero, my Prayer Warrior. You were strong. You told me Life could be tough but I must be tougher. Mummy, I’ll miss the little quarrels. I’ll miss the frequent pecks and cuddles each time we were together.
Mummy, Asake would miss you o.
You’re singing with the Angels now. Mummy! Ebuntanfe would miss you too. All I can say is that I’ll miss you.
As I type I am smiling and shedding tears. Mummy, I knew you would pass someday you were a fighter o. Ah! Mummy e try gann! But se mon, you followed your path.
Fly with the Angels. I am consoled but I am pained. Omoooo, that kind of wound so deep that no one can treat for me. But I’ll hold on , your Baby Girl would keep holding on.
You left me with your sweet memories, I cant even beleive you’re gone. I can almost feel your warmth. Iya mi Ashani, Sleep, Rest in Peace (ooops! Did I just type that last part)
I Love You Mummy.
