IN LOVING MEMORY OF DORCAS ABIODUN ADEKOYA (NEE DAODU) January 1, 1929 – April 10, 2013 Services Saturday, May 11, 2012 – 9:30 A.M CROSSROADS BIBLE CHURCH 15815 SE 37th Street, Bellevue, WA 98006 (425)-747-6750 Grandma Adekoya - Always Forever In Our Hearts
A million times we needed you, A million times we pled you must not go, If fondness alone would have saved you, You would have never died. In life we love you dearly, In death we love you still, In our hearts you hold a special place, No one can ever fill.
Some may say we will get over you, Though on earth you are no more, But in our memory you are golden and forever remain with us, As you always were before, It broke our hearts to lose you, But you will forever remain in our memories, A part of you will always be with us.
Your precious memories are keepsakes, Which we never part, God has you safely in His bosom, We have you forever in Our Hearts. ~ Your Children

Ademilola, Bunmi, Auntie Tutu, Dr. Bola Adekoya and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a very good woman. I remember for her strength, sincerity, forthrightness and love. She loved to celebrate her birthdays and I remember her unique sense of human because she always seem so serious, but don't be fooled, was a lot of fun too. I hope that you all find comfort in the wonderful memories of your Mom. I pray that God would comfort and give you the strength to bear the pain of her loss.
Take comfort in in the fact that she lived well and raised good children.
