|Let the memory of Akanni be with us forever|
"It is 3yrs today yet it seems just like yesterday.
I recur our last engagement and how you were trying to get my attention on the night of the 23rd; hours before they removed the Oxygen.....
Honestly, I still can't comprehend the basis for their action or who gave the permission after we left.
We did pray and I tried to reach out to Pastor Adeboye thru his Son and also tried to reach out to Pastor Kumuyi when I realized this was beyond medical science but indeed only God knows the path glory.
The pain still remains fresh Dad and I have finally realized that it would linger unless the sweet memories fade! (Of course it can't).
You've fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith. We have remained steadfast as well and will stay on course till me meet in Paradise.
A few days ago, Denzel & Teni prayed for you and Denzel asked when you are coming back from Heaven.
We all love you Dad and miss you so so much.
Your Son, Babatunde."
"Didun ni iranti awon olododo....... RIP"
"Three years on!. The family is not the same without you. Keep resting in peace!"
"3 whole years my dad without you feels like eternity! I miss you every second of the day. I strongly feel dad that your last minutes on earth you were praying for us because great things are happening in your children's life. I only wish you were here to share those moments with us. Abiyamo tooto, I feel you are alive and with us every time. You cant begin to imagine how much we miss you at every step of the way. Your grandaughter asked me yesterday if I was happy you are in heaven? Of course I said YES cos that's the only thing that brings me joy in your passing but I told her I miss you being here with us and hearing your voice, word of advice and prayers. You were really wonderful n caring. It was as if you knew your time on earth wouldn't be longer than this cos you really poured love on us. Thank you daddy for your everlasting love even till you went to meet your maker. It's still like a dream...... that you are gone. Love you always and always missing you with every fibre of my being. Sleep on daddy, I will surely see you again. Your only daughter"
"Though we feel deeply saddened that brother is gone, we are consoled by the fact that he will make heaven by God’s grace. Adieu, Brother Goodnight “ We will always love you”. We sincerely missed you. We believe you are already resting in the sanctuary of the Lord. See you then at the sound of the Heavenly Trumpets. Brother, your suffering is over, rest in eternal peace!"
"I miss you Dad! I miss you like a toddler in the cradle. We all miss you . Sleep on in the bosom of our Lord Jesus. Thank you for Psalm 46: 1- end. We all recite it of by hear till today. Thank you for teaching us about Christ. Thank you for placing our feet on the part of righteousness. Thank you for letting us into the fear of God. Thank you for imbibing the dictates of Christ in us. Thank you for Values and Virtues. Thank you for the legacy you left behind. Thank you for making your short stay worth the while. We loved you then, we love you now, we will always love you daddddddddy"
"Dad, you would have been 65 today. You would have shown some more love. You would have added some more value. You would have brightened up faces , you would have touched lives. You would have helped with some unanswered questions.
You have given a shoulder to lean on, you would have given your opinion about a lot of stuff. We love you. we miss you....we cant express it. But we are consoled in the fact that you are resting in Christ's bosom. Good night Dad. Sleep on till the resurrection morning ."
"Forever missing you daddy. I light a candle for you. Now I know time doesn't really heal the wound of those we love sincerely. Your one and only daughter, Tosin"
"Happy post humus birthday my loving dad. You would have been 65 years on earth today, but I thank God for the great life you lived. Loving, kind and ever there! Missing you is really an understatement daddy, cos it's actually every moment. But we thank God for the father to the fatherless that you committed us to, HE has never leave nor forsake us. I will always thank you dad for showing us the way of the Lord n telling us to hold tight! I will always thank you for showing us unquenching love even till the last. You are indeed one in a zillion. So hard to find any like you daddy. I lay a flower for you today to show my undying love for you even I death. You live on daddy!!!! You live in us. My mum, I , and my brothers miss you like you left us yesterday, not been easy. But I know you are resting with our Lord and Saviour until we meet again. Maa sun laya Olugbala, titi ojo ajinde to ko ni si ipinya mo. Love you my dearest dad. I love and miss you indeed. Happy 65th birthday daddy"
"Brother as you are foundly called,2 years rolled past like yesterday.Your memories still fresh and could not beleive you are gone.Making heaven has always been and will always be my prayer for you.Thank God you held on to the cross to the end.We will forever remember you .Good night."
"Wow! 2 years gone. We Miss you & forever will."
"Hi Dad! I must acknowledge the infinite and immortal impact of EL Shaddai in our lives.
You handed us over into the hands of God exactly 2 years ago, he hasn't failed us a day since you trusted us in his hands.
Mom and all the six of us are lounging in the hands of God; we have not known a better yesterday since you trusted us in his hands.
We thought that was the end, but God shows up for us each time we look back to check if you were still there.
Thanks for trusting God to do a good job at caring for us.
He has always been there ."
"Its still like a fresh wound, the impact of your exit in our hearts.
We take solace in the fact that you are in a better place, with your maker....singing halleluyah.
Your legacy, principles and kind words outlive you.
Sleep on Dad....in the Lord's bosom . Till the resurrection morning when we shall start a new life together, beyond here.
I love you and will always , always do.
"Seems like yesterday but alas it's 2 years already Dad. May your gentle soul continue to RIP... We miss you so so much.."
"A o pade lese JESU ni bi ti a ko ni yarawa, a o ri r a wa , a o yo ma rawa Jesu ni the yio se baba fun wa. Sun re Sun re, Sun re."
"Already 2 years dad! Just like yesterday you departed this sinful world. It's beginning to dawn on me that you'very gone never to return to us. Missing you is painful dad. It's like a pain in the chest that doesn't want to go away. With tears in my eyes I remember you today as always. The father of the fatherless has always been there for us and also been a husband to mummy. We really appreciate God for not leaving us alone. He has really been awesome , taking care of the ones you left behind every step of yhe way. Maa sun laya olugbala re Baba mi...One in my WORLD till we meet to part no more"
"Happy Posthumous B'day Dad... Even though you have dropped the flesh for a spiritual raiment, we know you are up there smiling down. Please accept our best wishes as we celebrate a man of integrity, perseverance, diligence and faith.
Now I see better sense in all you say. You were a hard core honest man and preferred to live a happy & modest life with your family than yield to the temptation of the flesh that could lead to spiritual and physical disaster.
Your pitch ... Seest though a man diligent in his work, he shall stand before kings and not before mean men... Today we all celebrate you as your teachings are yielding immense fruits.
We will continue to abide in love and live in truth anywhere we chance to stray as it clearly has significant dividends.
Oh Dad, how I miss our discussions on Politics and the Financial Services Industry. Wherever you are, I’m sure you are happy with the traction achieved by us all and my latest uplift to executive management.
Continue to sleep peacefully in his bosom till we meet. Babatunde.
Infact the song on the site is the best... drills into my marrow and brings some tears to my eyes. ..."
"Hmmm what can I say? You would have been 64 today dad but you went home to be with the Lord. I wont say you left too soon cos God has a reason for calling you home at that time. I really can't express all I have in my heart. All I can say is to appreciate you for being the best dad in the world and thank God for giving me the priviledge to experience ur love and care cos they are really compared to none other. You were really awesome dad and those years we spent together were so beautiful..... I want to wish you a happy posthumous birthday daddy. I always feel like you are still here... I know you pray n watchover us. I remember you today as always cos missing you is actually every single day. You comitted us into God's hands before you left. I want to tell you he has really been the father to the fatherless and a husband to mummy. I try to remember all that you taught and told me all the years n put them into practice.... Missing u is an understatement dad cos you are one in our WORLD. Samuel Akanni Ojo, a o pade lese JESU, didun ni Iranti re baba mi S.A OJO. You are always in my heart... ALWAYS. I know we shall Surely meet again dad without a doubt. Happy birthday once again n love you LOADS. Your one n only daughter Tosin"
"Forever in Our Heart"
"Dear brother Akanni, we forever remember you. We love you and pray to meet at the Lord's feet to part no more"
"I lay a flower at your tomb today with tears in my eyes. Just to let you know you mean the world to me. Still like a dream....."
"Dearest dad, your thoughts were with me throughout today and I was really missing you like you just went to eternity. It's almost 2years that you left this world of pain and its still so difficult to come to terms with you not being there. Loving you is an understatement dad, I clamour for you every time. The gap you left in me can not be filled by anyone. I thank God that you are God's BELOVED and you are resting with him. Even through the hustle n bustle of this world, my heart and thoughts lies with you ALWAYS. Continue to rest on my favorite until we meet to part no more. My loving n caring dad, Akanni Sam. Your only daughter. Tosin"
"Daddy, life without you has been unbearable but the Lord has never left us. Always been there for us . Miss u daddy"
"Loving u dad. Miss u every passing moment. Rest on my dad. One a million. Akanni oninure. Tosin"
"I love and miss you Dad. Words cannot express how deep the pain of exit has driven into my bone marrow. Im in tears right now. I love and miss you deeply and dearly. Continue to RIP my best friend, my hero"
"Dearly Beloved Brother,
I never knew this sickness could take you from us. I would have prayed more. Nevertheless, the Lord has prepared you for the journey, what a fortunate person you were, I know your greatest desire for us left behind' would be for us to know Jesus and accept Him as our Lord and Savior. We love you but Jesus desired to see your face in heaven.
I Thessalonians 4 verses 13-16"
"Life is like a vapour, the bible say. We thank God for the life of our brother, father, uncle and in-law. We thank God for His mercies over the extended family to date and trust that with God all is well with us.
"You'll never know what you have until you loose it". But we are consoled that all of us redeemed by Christ will meet at the "marriage feast of the lamb" in heaven. Kindly ensure you qualify for this feast by simply asking for the forgiveness of your sins and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour . However foolish this sounds, please do it in the secret of your heart. He sees your heart and will rescue from the wrath to come. Thanks.
Dr Segun OJO"

"May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
You'll be missed"

"Daddy,Exactly a year today you went to meet your maker. This is about the time I heard you breath your last. It hasnt been easy without you dad. I miss you with every fiber of my being. It was a rude shock. I thought I was going to pass myself. I felt like dying with you dad. I thought life could not go on again. My daddy my daddy I cant begin to tell you and express my innermost feeling. I grabbed for Balance. I was so afraid, I never knew you could go that soon. At 62, I was thinking we have many many years to spend on earth together. Daddy o ga o, o lagbara. The space you left in me can never be filled by no one. I hold you so loving in me. Theres no minute I dont think about you. Atimes its just like a sad dream. You'v been a strenght for us dad, you'v been a strong pillar and tower for us all. We dnt know where to turn to or where to go if not for the holy spirit. You are indeed so loving n caring. one in a million. A rare gem. Will hold all you'v taught me very close to me and be the great woman you wanted me to be. I love you so much and more even in death Akanni oninu re. You are an Angel that came from above to shower love on us your children & mum. Your time on earth was really memorable filled with joy and Happiness. Sleep on my handsome father with the Lord . You ran your race and finished your course and now rewarded in HEAVEN, how beautiful is that! I will continue to love you as long as I breath. You can never be forgotten. You are Forever Missed. Always in my heart. Your girl Oluwatosin."
"I miss your jokes brother.
You shouldn't have gone that way if not for the state of healthcare in Nigeria
Rest in peace!"
Firstly, I would like to say BIG thanks to mom for being there for us every step of the way...I mean “every step”, since you left. You were lucky, and so are we, to have her (beautiful, caring & great mother).
I miss your advice, Check-up & especially prayers via phone (mum has been great) – you left a space too big for anyone to fill.
I miss you dad & I’ll forever do, albeit I am happy & I obtain solace in the fact that you are in a better place.
Continue to rest in perfect peace till we meet to part no more.
"Happy B'day Dad... Even though you are not here in the flesh to receive our best wishes.. we definitely know this is your special day and we would continue to honour you as long as we live."
"Miss you so much dad...I wanted to call this morning to wish you a happy birthday but God knows better...Happy birthday dad"
"Daddy today is your birthday. Happy birthday Dad.Would have called as usual to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Its just so sad to know you are gone, never to come back to us. But we take delight in the fact that you are in a better place resting from all the problems of this world. So happy for you dad that you made heaven. You are so kind and loving. I really miss your love and care. We all do. You still live in us dad. And my love for you grows more n more. Happy birthday Daddy Tosin. We surely meet again. Love you forever.

"Dad i think about you every passing day . I doubt it will ever stop. My heart aches for you always. Not been an easy Journey without you if not for God on our side. I try so hard to make sure mum and all my brothers are fine dad but nothing can ever fill the void you left behind. We try everyday to be whom you wanted us to be. I missed you so much yesternight so sad I couldnt just pick up my phone and call you as usual. Rest on my father, Gods beloved. YOU are always in my heart. ALWAYS"
"Almost a yr since you departed the planet earth for a better one but strangely, I'm yet to come to terms with reality. Seems like a long long dream that would soon end.. We al miss you! As you say jokingly sometimes (pls take care of your mummy) without a good sense that the time was nigh. We will double our hacks and ensure she is happy and lacks nothing by his Grace."
"The best dad in the World"
"life is painful and unfair without you Dad"
"I feel lonely without you dad. The views , the thoughts , the guide and corrections you provided me.....I know I would see you again some day.
You left a legacy that no one can match, you were selfless, loving , caring, lively, adorable, dependable , reliable and formidable. Sleep on good Dad"
