Happy posthumous birthday to iya mi owon. Mummy , it has not been easy since u left, my priceless gold. Ha!!! mummy, your grand children miss u so much, they won’t stop calling “grandma Ilorin’s name” They wouldn’t stop asking if u would return, they miss your songs and dance, they miss the evening stroll. Sweet mother, last year was tough without their sweet grandma Ilorin, that space was too empty that I unconsciously break down before the kids sometimes, it hurts so much when i feel their tender hands wipe tears off my face, saying “sorry mummy, God will bring your mummy back in Jesus name” Mummy, I say Amen to their innocent prayers even though I know u are already resting in your FATHER’S bossom. It’s a new year, and yet, the feeling is the same. It’s a year and few months since u left Maami, what has happened within the space of one year will shock you mummy. I know u can never forsake us for one day if u were alive, mummy , your daughter cries almost every day for your motherly love, sweet mummy I want to write more .
