Ayo,
Gone but never forgotten,
You came into our lecture room ( always 10 minutes late but this was endearing) full of life and smiles.
I will forever remember your presentation where you stretched the time out for the team and had us all in fits of giggles.
Your infectious smile and love for bright colours ✨️
We will make you proud Ayo, and will continue this journey for you! 🎓
Thank-you for the time we spent together ❤️ the prayer around our resubmission table.🙏
Lots of love,

The news of Motunrayo's passing leaves a heavy heart in our class. She was a beacon of warmth and kindness in our school days, always with a friendly smile and a welcoming spirit.

Motunrayo wasn't just friendly, she carried a deep faith that shone through in her interactions. Her kindness wasn't just courtesy, it stemmed from a genuine love for others and a desire to see the good in the world.

We'll all remember [fond memory of classmate] - a testament to the positive impact she had on our lives. Her faith was a guiding light, and we take comfort knowing she rests peacefully in God's embrace.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to [classmate's name]'s family during this difficult time. May the memories of her beautiful spirit bring them solace.

We may no longer see her smile in person, but the warmth of her friendship and the strength of her faith will forever be a part of our class memories.

Motunrayo Afuwape, you are a radiant soul whose will light continues to shine bright in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing you. With heavy hearts, we gather here today to honor the life of a dear friend, a cherished classmate, and a beautiful person inside and out.

Motunrayo you are more than just a schoolmate; you are a beacon of kindness and warmth to everyone who encountered you. Your infectious smile could brighten even the darkest of days, and your genuine compassion touched the lives of countless individuals.

You had a unique gift for seeing the best in others and spreading positivity wherever you went. Whether it was a comforting word, a listening ear, or a simple act of kindness, Motunrayo, you made it your mission to uplift those around you and make the world a better place.

Your presence brought a sense of unity and camaraderie to our Old Students' community. You were the one who brought people together, bridging gaps and forging lasting friendships that transcended the classroom walls.

Though you may no longer walk among us, your spirit lives on in the memories we hold dear. We will forever cherish the laughter shared, the conversations had, and the moments of joy you brought into our lives.

As we bid farewell to our beloved friend, let us take solace in the knowledge that her legacy of love and compassion will endure for generations to come. May your gentle soul find eternal peace, and may your memory continue to inspire acts of kindness and goodwill in our hearts.

Rest in peace, dear Motunrayo Afuwape. You will be deeply missed, but your light will forever guide us through the darkest of days.

It's sad for me to write this tribute to a sister, friend, neighbour and co-lead.
Tunrayo and I lived in the same street way back in Lagos in the 80s. She was the Head Girl and I was the Head Boy or Senior Prefect in our High School. We were like brother and sister, we had many things in common.
She was a very likable and easy going person. Most importantly, she feared and loved God. I'm happy that she remained faithful till the end. Rest well my dear sister. We shall meet again.

I will carry the Ayo Joy of life & Faith inGod with me, always.

TRIBUTE TO MY SISTER
Motunrayo Opeyemi Temidayo is my darling Sister from another mother!
Starting out as church members, then neighbours and finally metamorphosing into Sisters...
I guess we were destined to be so, as we were both from only girl families and so found a common sorority😊
Mummy BT shared so many stories of your childhood with me, just like my Mom did with you too and you were such a sweet daughter to her.
You were 'Mummy Tunrayo' to my kids who you spoiled silly at every opportunity! You had cared for them long before they were born and then we took care of them together after their arrival in the world. They have fond memories of their custom-made birthday cakes, especially for their first year and even the one who wasn't born by the time you left for UK also joined them to love you to bits❤️
You were a Mother Hen par excellence, especially to your brothers and their families and you were indubitably and unquestionably, a loyal and loving wife till you breathed your last.
It was so normal for you to let me know the instant something was amiss with any aspect of your life, that I felt you should have at least hinted me of your impending departure, but this your death was a cannonball that I never saw coming and it hit me right where it hurts the most😭
My greatest source of comfort is that you loved God passionately and served him heartily, faithfully and with dispatch, bidding many to join you to do the same💃🏾

My dear Sis Tuns, till we meet to part no more, you can be sure I'm looking forward to our meeting again at the Pearly Gates.
Indeed, "you're ending up with far more children than all those childbearing women." God says so! (Isaiah 54:1b MSG)

Ayoyemi Ezebune
I’m not surprised it was “your boy” who was the one chosen to see you out of my children the last time you came home! Even I didn’t get the honour🥲

I am not naturally one to loose grasp of what word to use even in the most impromptu times, but here am I at the news of your death, lost for words on how to express my shock. Sister mi, as we all fondly called you, please Rest in Peace! You were such a loving person and never showed off above us all your younger ones. I still recall how sometimes you want to join in our "groove" by trying to sing our songs and do our dance steps. That's how well you related. We love you but God loves you more obviously. Please Rest in The Lord, and wait patiently for Him. You'll forever be in our hearts.

Tunrayo

”Those who live good lives find peace and rest in death.“ Isaiah‬ ‭57‬:‭2‬ ‭GNBUK‬‬

Tunrayo, still many chats, unfinished decisions and discussions that we promised to have after your 51st birthday and at your next visit. God has however allowed you to go behind the scenes of this world. Tunrayo, you have decided to take a leap with year 2024 and you have taken a victorious and most senior step ahead all of us. It’s still very hard and unbelievable though, but we must submit to the will of our Unquestionable God who remains faithful in all situations.
My dear sister and friend I have decided to celebrate your good life rather than focus on what never happened because your Creator loves you more. You will forever be in my heart ❤️ Sleep well my Lovely, until we meet to part no more at the feet of the Master.

”The righteous … are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death.“Isaiah‬ ‭57‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭NIVUK‬‬

I think I must have been waiting for a miracle, I mean my refusal to write something could not have been anything more than that. I have refused to think of it or to even consider it. This late in the day made me realize that it is true and so I must say my goodbyes. Yet, I am short of words and cannot express my pains as my heart is heavy.
I will miss you ‘Tunrayo, you are one of the most supportive friend I have. So supportive that she was willing to give whatever she had materially as well as give of herself. She was hospitable making everyone feel welcomed in her presence. Tunrayo was gentle and had a soft spoken nature. It was on rare occasions that you witnessed her anger. She had an enviable ability to see the good in others, even when it is obvious this person is not as good as she thought, Tunrayo will give likely reasons why it is appearing so at the time.
Darling friend, I will miss you and it is my prayer that Jehovah in his mercy remembers you for good and resurrect you in his Kingdom so that we shall meet again and continue this friendship that started more than 30 years ago.
May Jehovah also grant your brothers the strength to bear this pain and the gap that your departure will leave in their lives.

Rest on darling friend.

Sis Tunrayo, it’s still a shock that you are not with us on this side, but we choose to celebrate your life. You were one of the most selfless persons I had the privilege of knowing, loving, caring, kind-hearted and the most beautiful smile. You lived a life dedicated to God and the assurance that you are with Him is the thought that keeps us going. Can’t wait till we meet again.

I am lost for words, can't believe it, just too soon for me!

Ayo fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith.
May the Lord strengthen (comfort and heal) us all in our innermost being, through His Holy Spirit as we grieve her sudden departure to Glory.

Motunrayo mi,

This is one of the most difficult things I have had to write. More difficult than all my life's exams. How do I say farewell to someone I have known for 32years, my friend, my sister, my confidante, my partner in God's kingdom? I met you in my first year at the university as my sister from another mother and we have been friends since.

Your sudden departure was a shock and hurt so bad. However, it was not a shock to the Lord who works all things out for the good of those who love Him. Your love and passion for God was exemplary and was shown even in the way you served the churches and many people. I am priviledged to have known you this long and to have spent life with you without any conflict. Your imprints will forever live on in our lives, mine, your family and the many children you left behind. I have so many happy pictures of us that I am happy you insisted we took (pix mama). Yet, so many dreams, itinerary and pending aspirations that will now be fulfilled in the new world.

Enjoy this Easter break up there, my sister. Ironically I have been staring at the Easter picture we took at Kingsgate and thought about resurrection. God's timing for you is unquestionable. You have now been resurrected in Christ Jesus and I look forward to the day we will all meet together again at the feet of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, where there will be no more sorrow, no more sickness, no more death and no more pain.

Do you remember when you walked through that gate in Lincoln and I watched your backview as you left, saying you have passed through the valley of shadow of death and feared no evil because God was with you? We laughed but how true that is today!

Gen 5:24 now echoes for me - "Motunrayo walked with God, and she is no more on this earth, she has passed from death to life, because the Lord took her."

Grateful to God for a life you well spent.

Goodnight my friend.

Love always,
Tolu

Motunrayo!!!, although you are gone, but your spirit lives on through the many lives you have touched, your kindness, and unwavering love of God. Though the pain of your sudden departure may seem unbeatable, we can take solace in the fact that your memory will never fade away from our heart.
Continue to sleep on and tight until we meet again

It's hard to come to terms that Tunrayo left us all in such a jiffy. Opeyemi was an angel in human skin. She lights up any location or environment she finds herself. Growing up together years back, she cares so much for all around her. Guess it's true that Good people don't stay long.
Tunrayo may you find perfect rest in the bosom of the Lord. May God grant your entire family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. Opeyemi rest on till we all meet to part no more at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Tunrayo, your demise came to me as an utter shock. I was trembling and could not believe it.

I got to know who you are through Jumoke Johnson, your special egbon.

We were last together at Ascot in June 2023. We mingled together and had a good time. You sat next to me for afternoon tea. Who would have known that would be the last time I would see you or that you only had a few months left. Can't question God as I'd like to as only he knows best. Who am I to say WHY?

You're such a wonderful person and know how you loved your maker. He took you because he loves you more than we do. Albeit the circumstances hurts but he knows best.

Rest in his bossom as surely the angels are rejoicing. You have left a vacuum here on earth but the Lord almighty will comfort us all.

Rest In Peace my lovely.

Motunrayo Opeyemi! 3 days before your 51st birthday, you YOU LEFT US ALL ON THE DANCING FLOOR!. You called me on that Saturday morning obviously to let me know you were in A&E, but l missed your call. We talked 2 nights before, that l was missing you. Motunrayo! You never said bye bye. Aburo mi, elerin eye, sweet through & through.
Darling of Jesus, you didn't only love Jesus, you were forever inviting others to join you love Him. Promoter of good news, carrier of glory. Life dished to you all manners of pain, but you laughed through them all- YOU TRUSTED, COMMITTED, LOYAL TO YOUR GOD UNTIL THE VERY END. NOTHING SEPARATED MOTUNRAYO FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST.The more the pressure, the more you loved, sought & served Him! You were a great example to all. To know you is to love you. Mot, Mot you are now at rest, never to be separated from your Father God. Never to be touched by wickedness again. BUT it is so difficult to say good bye. My hands on your chest, Modupe holding your hands, your brother holding your feet, you opened your eyes for the last time, l felt breath living you, like a person getting out of the train, you left! I ignored my nursing cap( because l knew it was that last breath) l called Modupe's attention, believing, trusting for sign of life, hoping desperately that you were back to life. Alas! You were gone! How can l even write RIP on your photos, how can l address you in the past tense? You were part of our life. We are inconsolable! But you know what, the God our Father can do all things. Sleep on Motunrayo.
“Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”

Tunstuns ‘as I love calling you,
This is a rude shock to me.
You left without a word, but God loves you best.
It’s very hard to put words down but can only say who are we to question God.
Rest well Aburo. Though we are deeply saddened we have to part ways here on earth, your legacy, spirit and laughter live on.
Adieu Tunrayo

My dearest friend, I am still in denial that you have just left me like that. You never told me that our last telephone conversation on the 01/03 at 17.25 was the last one. Ayo you have left me so empty, sad and so soon. I am still in shock and don’t want to accept that you are gone forever.

I first met Ayo in 2018 at our university interview day and we said hello to each other. I can’t still picture your beautiful smile. We were the only two black among the group of candidates. You turned round and told me, it is well my sister. We both got through and started our course together. I can still picture our crying , our sleepless nights going through our assignments and anytime we pass we celebrate our success together.

Ayo we’re not just a friend and colleague but a sister. I leant a lot from you. Your dedication and love for God, was extraordinary. You were always a shoulder for me to cry on. You always encouraged me to have faith and never give up. II remember every Saturday the phone calls asking me to come to church with you on Sundays. Our chats and phone calls. You show me true friendship..Our promise to each other to visit each other countries ( Ghana and Nigeria). I can’t come to terms that you are gone without us achieving our promises.

I will forever cherish our friendship. It is with a heavy heart , deep sadness to say farewell my beautiful friend. Sleep well till we meet again

Dear Tunslacuisine,

The turn of events and your absence leaves a void in our lives that words can barely express. We find solace in the belief that you are now resting in the bosom of the Lord.

I vividly recall our first meeting at Immanuel’s baby dedication. You approached me with a warm smile, introducing yourself as a member of our Lifegroup, offering your help without hesitation. That moment showcased the essence of your spirit—always ready to assist, bringing beauty and order effortlessly. You didn’t just find the table for the cake (bringing it down from my room); you transformed it into a centrepiece of the celebration, a testament to your innate talent and generous heart. Since then, your culinary skills have graced many of our family gatherings, etching your signature dishes, especially your renowned moi moi, which even my brother in Nigeria knows. Your ability to create connection and community through your cooking was nothing short of magical.

In addition to your culinary prowess, we remember your kindness and friendliness as pillars of your character. A friendly face, a warm hug, and a photo after church services became cherished rituals, reminders of the light you brought into our lives. As we navigate this world without your physical presence, we hold on to the bright spark of your spirit. May your smile, as radiant as ever, illuminate the heavens as it did our lives here on earth.

Rest in peace, my dear friend, in the comforting arms of the Lord. Your legacy of love, warmth, and generosity continues to inspire us all.

Love Uzo

If someone told me that on this date I would be writing a tribute for the funeral of my bestie I would probably not talk with the person again but here I am trying to pen a thought about my bestie. Motunrayo Opeyemi Afuwape

I am still in shock and I have not stopped crying because each time I close my eyes I see you. Maybe because you breathe your last breath in my arms or because of the wonderful moments we’ve shared. Your presence is all over our house. The plant you gave Olakunle and me on our wedding anniversary is on my kitchen window and it brings sweet memories of our life together each time I look at it.

I can never get over your departure I can only live with it for the rest of my life till we meet at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ

I thank God for the life well spent in Christ, your love for God and people was undeniable. You were a woman of inestimable value. Everyone who encountered you encountered grace and you left an indelible mark in my heart and these are what I will cherish till I see you and we part no more. Sun re òré mi òwón. 💟

Your presence is all over our house. The plant you gave Olakunle and me on our wedding anniversary is on my kitchen window and it brings sweet memories of our life together each time I look at it.

I can never get over your departure I can only live with it for the rest of my life till we meet at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ

I thank God for the life well spent in Christ, your love for God and people was undeniable. You were a woman of inestimable value. Everyone who encountered you encountered grace and you left an indelible mark in my heart and these are what I will cherish till I see you and we part no more. Sun re òré mi òwón. 💟

What can I say, I am still shocked but I’m glad you knew God. Your WhatsApp status was always my information page for hallelujah challenge and other Christian programs.

I would never forget your welcoming smile the first time we met and the love for others that radiated around you. You were an amazing person.

Adieu Aunty Tunrayo.

Philippians 1: 21 ‘’ For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.’’
1 Corinthians 15: 54-55 ‘’ When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”
Adieu, Tunrayo. You loved and served God, you loved and served God’s people. You lived well!

Motunrayo, affectionately known at Alive South church, as AYO. What a privilege to have you in our Life group, "God's Conquerors," an integral member of Alive South, prayer warrior and you walked in tune and attentive to the Holy Spirit in every aspect of your Life. Beautiful smile, fun to be with, contagious laugh and such warmth that drew people to you. Engaged with your Heavenly Father at so many levels. Loved your Big Heart, compassion and Love for ALL people, your evangelistic Heart to bring people to Salvation. So much treasure within you, giftings, words of knowledge and prophecy, your love for connection with children of all ages. Thank you for speaking into our lives, your encouragement, the small things you did that meant so much. Your continual praying during the service, your glorious dancing, your Love for food and sharing and meeting at our fathers table. Beautiful inside and out - what a wonderful party celebrating your 50th, one of the few times you were not late!!! Now you have been taken too soon, too early, there was so much more for you here to be part of. We are comforted by knowing you will be dancing around the Throne of heaven with Jesus in Glory. We Love you and miss you but so Blessed to have met you and know you have left a Worthy Legacy on Earth. Rest in Heavenly Peace.

In cherished remembrance of Motunrayo Afuwape, whose earthly journey concluded on March 2, 2024, as she peacefully entered the eternal embrace of the Lord. Motunrayo, a beacon of warmth and kindness, left an indelible mark on the hearts of those blessed to share in her presence.

Her unwavering spirit and infectious joy illuminated the path of countless lives. Motunrayo's compassion knew no bounds, and her selfless acts of love enriched the lives of family, friends, and acquaintances alike. In moments of sorrow, she offered solace; in times of joy, she amplified the celebration.

Motunrayo's legacy is one of love, resilience, and generosity. Her laughter echoed in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to experience its melody. As we mourn her physical absence, let us also celebrate the vibrant tapestry of memories she wove into the fabric of our lives.

In the quiet reflection of her passing, may we find solace in the knowledge that Motunrayo's spirit lives on in the enduring echoes of her laughter, the kindness she shared, and the love she showered upon all. Though she has left the realm of the living, her influence continues to resonate, reminding us to cherish each moment and embrace the bonds that connect us.

As we bid farewell to Motunrayo in the physical realm, let us carry forward the lessons she imparted and honor her memory by perpetuating the love and compassion she so effortlessly bestowed upon others. May her soul find eternal peace, and may her memory be a source of comfort and inspiration for all who knew her.

Sis mi, still shocked at the news. You are missed but I remember that you are in a better place now. I saw you barely 4 days before and I was going to send you a message that my parents loved your cooking. Alas! Well I have made a note to remember to tell you when we meet in heaven. Sun re o sis mi. May the LORD comfort your family and us your friends. Amen!
