"You would have been 80 years old today. You really looked forward to today, but God knows best"
"Daddy,I can't still believe you are gone.You were strong to the end .I will miss your steadfastness,and your humor when you were with my boys especially about SEGUN BUCKNOR.You lived a good and exemplary life.REST IN PEACE."
"You were such an enigma, a strongman, a man of faith and principle.
You came, you saw and conquered.
Death is man's enemy but you have gone where death can no longer have any hold on you again. Till we meet at the feet of our Lord, sleep on Sir, Omo Ibadan ajorosun... O digba o!"
"Grandpa, A man who stood for honesty, integrity, discipline, loyalty and contentment. These are the values l personally picked from you. You were strong, hardworking, jouyful and really loved your rabbits. I thank God that I took good care of you when you were with us for three months and also shortly before your death. Even in your pains, you joked with us about "enjoyment, enjoyment and Segun Bucknor". I love you so much and will miss you greatly Grandpa. Rest In Peace."
A great man.
A man of integrity.
A man who instilled strong moral values and the value of hard work in us.
A man who kept his promises.
A loyal and consistent man.
A man who loved his God and grandchildren dearly.
Goodnight Daddy, till we meet at the feet of Jesus to part no more."
"You have always been a good example, consistently reminding us about the importance of hard-work, spirituality and integrity, you encouraged us to strive for excellence in all we did. We will deeply miss your guidance and humble spirit. Rest in peace Grandpa."
"Adieu to a great man, a father, brother, Uncle and brother -in-law. Baba Tola as we fondly call you intend family we will all miss you. I will miss your sense of humour, your critical analysis of issues and your arguments. I pray that the good Lord will grant my aunt (Aunti mi), children, grand children, family, friends and relatives the fortitude to bear the loss of this wonderful man. Daddy had gone to rest with the Lord and may his soul rest in perfect peace!!!"
So many things to remember you for. Disciplined and focused. 1st great impression I got to be bold as a lion and be fearless when the lions at the university of ife zoo gave birth to their 1st set of cubs and you carried them and took pictures of them too.
When you 1st accepted Christ you taught everyone in your household to follow suit and there and then a house fellowship was started in ur house.
Lover of animals ...you gave me a picture of how Noah took care of the animals in the Ark. Your house had different sorts of domestic farm animals which you reared.
Could go on and on but most important of all is you loved the Lord and showed your family to follow suit
Rest in the bosom of the Father."
From the first day I met you, your humility amazed me. And the more our relationship became close, I realized that you were real as gold. Your morality and your integrity were examplary and exceptional in this clime. I've thanked you and still thank you for giving me a well brought up and complete woman as a wife. You are missed and would continually be missed. RIP"
Still like a dream to me.You loved us and taught us to always put our trust in the Lord. Thank you for teaching us the ways of the Lord.
You never wavered in your faith and you deeply loved your Heavenly Father.You will forever have a place in my heart. Sun re o."
"I have many reasons to thank God for your life. First and foremost I thank God because you knew Him and you life was exemplary to your family, friends and colleagues.
I thank God for the way you led your family in the right directions and I count myself lucky to be your son-in-law. You loved your children greatly and you worked hard to provide for them. You taught them the ways of the Lord.
I thank God that your love was not limited to your biological family. You treated me like your own son in every way that I can think of. This memory I will forever cherish.
Good bye baba. RIP"
"Uncle Sijuade will be missed"
""Oh death where is your sting, oh grave where is your victory.
How can I ever get over your demise. You were a loving father to your children and grandchildren and a loving husband to your wife. You loved God dearly and were always satisfied with what you had, a principled man to the core . The vacuum you have left cannot be filled but I find solace in knowing that you are resting peacefully in the bosom of God where there is no pain or sorrow. Adieu daddy, you will forever be remembered by all of us.""
