Funmi was quiet, reserved, kind, caring and one of the most selfless and smartest people you would ever meet. She was always calm and nothing seemed to ruffle or bother her, she would always say ‘you’ll be fine’. She was playful, funny and chatty, once she lets you in to see that side of her.

Big thanks to all her friends - Lara, Paul, Fred, Pst Ben etc, the Hospitals Drs./ Staff that helped Funmi on her journey.

God bless you all.
