Today, Tomorrow and Always I will remember my mother in law Victoria Ajayi. In the beginning we had a rocky relationship. Every time she saw me she would point and say You, you, you. But as she got to know me and I her, we begun to understand each other better and developed a relationship based on mutual respect. For me respect for her; based on the strong, happy person she was and the remarkable children she raised. For her I believe she finally understood that no matter what I looked like, I love her daughter dearly and through my action it was apparent to her that I cared for the family as a whole and that’s the proof she needed. I’ve never met anyone like my mother in law before and I doubt that I will ever again meet anyone like her. She was a special lady completely dedicated to her children. To get to her children, you had to get through her first. She protected them like a lion in her den. With Cassie, she was as gentle as can be and Cassie helping her upstairs was a sight to see. I wish now that I took pictures to document how much love you could see between them with that simple task. I know we will clearly miss your presence in our home because when you are here with us it’s always an adventure full of laughs.

Dear Grandma,
I miss you already. Remember when you saw my garden nothing was growing yet. Now the string beans, peppers and carrot are growing just like yours. Yesterday, I picked the string beans off my garden and we cooked and ate it. It was very good. The banana plant you gave me is growing nicely too. I wish you were here to see it. I miss you already. Mom told me you are in heaven now and we will see you when we are old and ready too. But I didn't finish teaching you how to play the card game; I didn't paint your toes the last time you came over because we didn't have enough time. I wish I did those two things before you died. I will miss you at Grandma's day in school. I love you and miss you very much. This Easter, I will wear the nice necklace and earrings you gave me to church to remember you.
Love Cassie.

As I gaze upon the picture
of my grandmother on the wall,
Her dress conveys convention,
yet she looks so very BEAUTIFUL,
Certain of herself,With quiet dignity,I remember all the wisdom she often shared With me.Imagine what those days were like,so many years ago.
The void you left in my heart no one else can fill,Mama i LOVU you.Adedayo Bakare

Dearest mum,
I thank the Lord almighty for letting me have you as my mother. You are the most wonderful mum one could ever have. You dedicated your entire life to the care of your children and grandchildren.
I will always be grateful for all what you did for me and your grandson Akintomide. During my trying periods, you were by my side, you were there for me. My pains, tears, sadness and joy you shared everything with me.
The void you left in my heart no one else can fill. I clung to you, I did not want to you to go. My siblings and I, we tried everything that we could possibly think of to keep you here with us. But then, I realize we have to let you go. You deserve it. It’s time to rest mum.
I love you so much and I will always miss you. Rest in the Bossom of the Lord till we meet to part no more.
Love Jumoke

As I sit here and try and find more words to describe how much I miss and love you I am at a lost. You were more than a grandmother to me you were my idol. You represent everything that is pure and real about life and for that I thank you. In a world filled with so much pain and troubled times you are someone who I can always look at and feel at peace. I know you are now in a better place looking down on me and all of the family and I pray that when we meet again I can just have that last dance with you again. I miss you grandma and it hurts so much just to think about it. May you rest in peace and ill see you when I get there.

We have lost a wonderful woman, and I still cant believe my Grandmother has passed. But I have learned that she is in a better place and we will all see her again one day. What I learned from her is to keep on going and never give up. She was strong and because of her I will be strong. I will miss you Grandma.

My dear grandma. You meant more to me than you could possibly know. I love you and miss you. I wanted you to know that I got my courage from you. I still see you and hear you in my dreams. You will be in my heart forever.

To: My Loving Grand Mother,

Mrs. Victoria Ajayi , lived a long and very remarkable life. She loved me, and all of her grand children. She always had a smile on her face and made friends very easily. When I was a young boy, I remember traveling on a large airplane with my grand mother to America and I really didn’t know anyone or never flown on an airplane before. I was so scared that I remember crying and hugging my grand mother and telling her that I missed my parents. She said my name Jide, Jide, calm down and everything will be okay and you will see your parents soon I promise. My grandmother was a strict disciplinarian and wants her grandkids to know the family does not tolerate indiscipline. When I graduated from college, she was quite proud to be part of the occasion and to see me graduate. Since I graduated she always show concern about when I am going to get a job and what am I doing at the moment. She always shows concern for me. Any time I see her I could feel her love for me. The life experiences that I went through with my grand mother has shaped my life and taught me to be brave and be courageous no matter what the situation is. She is always very active and it is still a shock to see her lying in that casket. I love her and miss her very much. May her soul rest in peace.

My Dear Grandmother,

It is still so hard for me to believe you are no longer with us... You have always been such a beautiful, caring, loving and strong women for your children and grandchildren. You've taught us so much through the life you've lived and shown that family is the most important thing we have and to always cherish every moment we spend with one another. I am so blessed to share the same name with such an incredible woman and have so much to live up to with the mark you've left here on earth and in all of our hearts. The strength you've shown has taught me nothing is impossible and with God all things are possible. With every obstacle I surpass and success that comes my way I give you thanks for making me the woman I am. I know you will be looking down on all of us and watching over each and everyone of us like you have been here on earth and with that I know we will always be safe and protected. I miss you so much and hold on to all the love and memories you've given me. May you forever keep smiling. I love you with all my heart and will see you again in paradise.
