Funmi, it still feels like a dream. I miss you and your lovely family so much. I will miss our regular phone calls and uplifting discussions. My only consolation is that as a woman of prayer, you have gone to be with the Lord. Sleep peacefully until we meet again my dear friend.

How do we begin to describe the Kehindes and the lasting impression they made on our hearts? To attempt to describe the numerous ways in which they made indelible marks on our lives will be an enormous unending task. Although our time with them was abruptly ended, the memories of our time together will live on. We remember the first time we met Grace Omolayo, her warm smile radiated the room. She quickly warmed up to her cousins and started playing big sister while Mojoyin quietly watched on as her sister easily socialized with their young cousins. Although we could tell that Mojoyin was reserved, even in her quietness, her brilliance and smartness was evident. It was not a surprise when we learned that she excelled exceptionally in her GSCE O level exams. Just like her parents, her success was a challenge and an example to her cousins. "Auntie Funmi" like we call her, was just a wonder to us in many ways. Until her, we had never meant anyone who is as British as she is Nigerian. We remember when she first visited us in Texas, US and we went to the store together, everyone wanted to hear her speak because she was just so eloquent and articulate. Not just was her eloquence admirable and alluring, she had a warm heart and would always look out for others. "Uncle", known to many as Prof, was who we refer to as the best advocate to have in your your corner. Always soft-spoken, humorous, thoughtful, kind-hearted, generous, and loving in all his dealings. His commitment to family and friends is unparalleled, his act of generosity is astounding and difficult to match. 

Together as a family, the Kehindes touched so many lives. They a have left a Kehinde-shaped hole in our hearts and God knows we miss them so much. But our comfort is this: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

“Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long there is a memory, they’ll live on in our hearts.” RIP
