- Date of passing: Jul 23, 2011
|Let the memory of Engineer Babatunde Olaniyan be with us forever|
"5 years ago today, you were committed to mother earth, missing you as ever, your death has taught me a lot, that love is not about who you can see spending your life with; it is about who you cannot see spending your life without. The memories came back flooding me like water , especially as my dear friend close to my heart is being committed to mother earth on this day as well. Grief is a journey that sooner or later we all must take , it's how we take the journey that makes all the difference. Babs I miss you everyday, but I rejoice in the fact that God has been faithful to us . By His grace, we are 5 years stronger."
"I can't believe is been five years and you will forever be missed"
"Just to let you know we miss you everyday. Your absence is felt everyday and we miss you dearly. I know you are looking over us and blessing us with your spirit. We love you and miss you. Your caring nature, your loving heart and your calmness through all situations is a trait I will forever keep with me. I pray for your family too and hope we meet again. Oluseyi Okunlola"
"It's hard to believe 5 years has passed since you left us. Feels like yesterday. We miss you so dearly. Your words of courage, words of wisdom, your moral and spiritual support. How much more can I count. You were one in a million, a rear breed, a Loving husband, a caring and dedicated father, a great and dependable brother and confidant.
On behalf of my family, I wish you a continued rest in peace on the blossom of our Lord till we meet to parth no more."
"I can't believe it's been 5 years since your passing dad. I feel your presence everyday within my life whether it is something we did together or something you told me so that I could prepare for what lays ahead through this journey we call life. I thank you very much for being a special angel unto the family and me. I will continue to carry on the name of Babatunde because I must carry on your legacy. Miss and love you much. Your son, BJ"
"It has been five years since your passing daddy and now we're going to honor you by having fun in your name today. I miss you daddy. Your son, Oluwafeola."
"5 years on! To God be the glory. Babs you are greatly missed. Akande odi , omo epo , omo ewa , Bami agba, sun re o. I love you."

"I miss you."
"To God be the glory for His favour on me and our children; for God did not allow the enemies to triumph over us.(Psalm 41:11). Babs, with the closing of 2015, I say good night again till the dawn of day when we shall meet to part no more. You are loved; you are much loved. You were loved in life, and you are still loved in death. Bami agba, omo epo, omo ewa, continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord you loved dearly. We will forever cherish you. Good night."

"Hmmm, Iku mu enire lo. We thank God for a life well lived, to God be the glory. May God continue to sustain and bless the loved ones you left behind.
Continue to rest in God's bosom, till we meet again."
"To God be the glory. He knows, for He is the all knowing One. 4 years on, like yesterday. I remember you today with smiles. For your love, wisdom and strength have made me stronger and wiser. I will always love you. You were a special gift from the heart of God to me. I miss you, Babs, I miss you. But in humble submission, I say, to God be the glory. Yeye."
"Sweet is the memory of the dead. As we remember you today, we know you are in the bosom hand of the Almighty. I cherish every minute we spent together and your brotherly concern and wise counsel. Your wife has been a jewel of inestimable value and your children have been fulfilling the wonders of God's glory. As a shining star, l did not know you will leave so soon but God used you for us despite the shortness. I am always grateful to God for having you firstly as a brother, and secondly as a brother-in-law. You are a brother to have at all times and only few share this quality. Thank you so much as l will always remember you till we meet to part no more. Olumide Okunlola"
"Since the loss of you, I've learned to live each day, knowing it may not always be this way; learned that when everything goes wrong, to never give up on what is right, because it can only make you strong; learned that even when you're in a lot of pain, you've got to hold yourself together, so you won't feel like you're going insane, learned how to hold the tears when all I want to do is cry, because all I have is memories and just want to ask "why"? But mostly, since the loss of you, I've learned a life can be taken in the blink of an eye, and only Heaven knows when that person will have to say "goodbye". As I come to the close of another year without you, I will remember and thank God for giving you to me. Sadly missed every minute of everyday. Your soul mate. Agbeke."
"Tearing and singing at the same time. I wonder when these tears will eventually dry up. But I know that my Redeemer liveth, a Father of the fatherless, the defender of the widow. Your legacies, values,love, smile and genuine kindness have become our strength and we cannot part with that. We love you and greatly miss you our special angel."
"When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. Bami agba, I greatly miss you."
"Oluwa di mi mu, eniyan gbe mi ro.
Thank you Lord for the pillars and posts you give to me in this journey of widowhood."
"Blessed be the Lord, Who has not left off His kindness unto the living and the dead. God, I thank you for the pillars and posts you place in my life. To you be the glory. Babs, I love you and I greatly miss you ."

Continue to rest in the Lord. Happy birthday. Love and miss you."
"My Lord, You've been so good, You've been so good to me; my Lord, You are excellent in my life all the time; My Lord, You've been so good; You've been so good to me; my Lord ,You are excellent in my life. Babs, I miss you, miss you, I really miss you."
