You were More a Friend Than An Aunt

You gave me someone I could talk to when I was a rebel
You acted as a book of advise when I needed to study about life
You were always smiling even though you caould be tough when it is needed
You acted as a a communication structure between me and mum most of the time
You tend to understand me when most people dont understand
You always encourage me to follow through as long as I believe it is right
You always sort me out when am broke even when it is to take a date out
You are the only one/Nigerian I know that calls me by my full name
You always make my name sound like a pet name when you call me
You always know how to disolve my anger with words when am pissed at you
You are always slow to anger but always calm with it to a fault
You always make monthly foodstuffs shopping seems like fun cos you dont waste time
You are one of the best cooks I know and your parties are always the bomb

All my friends normally become your friend cos they think you are cool too and they always never believe you are younger than my mum,although you are the third born and she is the first.Although both you guys most time never agree on stuffs,the sisterly bond always keep you guys together.

I thank God for your life,his grace,mercies and favour on your life
I thank God for the part you played in my life for me to be where I am today
I thank God for allowing me to see you for the last time last december after almost 4yrs

This post is dedicated to my loving Aunt.
I got a call from my mum today and she told me my aunt died this past sunday and they have been trying to figure out how to tell me.Although I was shocked and sad when she told me,but I felt some sort of calmness in me cos I know she has gone home to rest.
My aunt is diabetic and it has gotten a little bit serious for the past 2-3yrs.She has been in and out of the hospital for a while,that when I saw her last December,she was a lot different from who I had grown up to know.


I love you aunty and a lot of people will miss you but I know God had to end your suffering and take you home to rest.

Adieu!!! till we meet again.

That was a touching tribute. I think most people are lucky to have a woman in their life other than their mom, that is their friend/ally/go-between and it is such a beautiful thing. You sound like you're dealing with it well and know that she is in a better place. Stay up homie!

NB, na wa for u o. I didn't want to expose ur yansh to the public on Adaure's page, that's why i came over to ur page. Na every owanbe party den say make u attend? Haba! You even had the nerve to write on Adaure's page that u would've been at the NC wedding. Kilode? Iwo nikan ni won se party fun ni? O boi, i am seriously beefing you. I've not attended any owanbe since nineteen gogoro, so u can't blame me for my hateritis.
