|Let the memory of Olujimi be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Olujimi Falase, 47, born on July 17, 1968 and passed away on August 1, 2015. A loving husband, father, brother and friend to all of us who were blessed to have known him. We will remember him always. RIP Jimi x
"My dearest first cousin and brother. You will forever be awake in my heart and mind. Gone too soon but you remain my TREASURE.
RIP sweet brother."
"May your soul continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ."
"One year ago, as I was just about to go to bed, a Facebook update from an old secondary school classmate caught my eye. He'd posted a picture of another classmate, sharing the sad news of his passing last night. I was frozen as I read it. FLASH is gone??!!
See.....when I started my new healthy lifestyle changes in June of 2014, Jimi was one of my biggest silent cheerleaders in the background. Right from secondary school, he was quite the physical specimen of fitness. Muscular and well cut. When he caught wind of my attempts to cultivate a healthier lifestyle via my social media updates, he reached out, and constantly and happily shared tips on exercising and diet to facilitate weight loss. We exchanged a few recipes as well. It was great, as we'd lost touch over the years. And then this happened ...
Jimi Falase...rest well with the Lord. I pray that he comforts your family, and grants them the wherewithal to bear your loss. Rest in perfect peace, my brother. My heart is still heavy .... God bless you and yours eternally."
"Jimi, forever missed, forever in my thoughts. What has kept me going today especially is knowing that God does not call for His children until they have completed His work on this earth. I believe you have done your work and you are now resting in His arms. It is well for I know in taking you back, God has left your family and friends the strength and faith needed to keep on going till He calls us. Jimi, though you are in a much better place, you will never be forgotten. Continue to rest well my dear friend."
"Flash...!!! indeed, U're surely missed. Time flies in a moment, already 1 year gone by...OBM...!
In Christ Alone...He ...calls you home...!!! May God continue to guide, protect & nourish your growing family, Amen...!!!"
"Ah Jim Jam.....
So 365 days have come and gone and we have cause today to once more reflect on your herculean struggle to this day last year.
You went out like a king, our hero, with a fortitude that will never be forgotten. And as you left , you said "Everything is sorted." We take comfort that you are well and truly "Sorted", living out a divine existence in the Glory of the Lord. What it must be like from day to day, rubbing shoulders with the great of the faith, those who like you,have run the most marvelous race and are resting now in a joyous and eternal peace.
You will be forever young in my heart. The sound of your chuckle will never fade. Your ever pragmatic counsel will always reflect in my judgement as I will always ask, "What would Jimi do?".
You live on in our minds , Jimi and we will continue to run your race here as we guide your wife and children to become people that will reflect the greatness of their husband and dad.
Sleep well my brother. Forever young in my heart...forever present."
We said goodbye one year ago. This time it was goodbye and not au revoir ... at least not for this side of eternity.
So much has happened in the past year. Yinka, Luseyi and Luropo have found a new rhythm and purpose that builds on the strong foundation you laid.
Mummy and daddy have navigated the valley of the shadow and reflect a peace that only God can give.
We, your siblings, feel your presence in a new way. I thought the five will become four. But no, the five remain five. You are indelibly etched into every day, of every month.
We miss you still. Thankfully, the pain, the grief is no longer the sole occupant of front seat. Jesus heals. Instead I think of you and smile. Your many nicknames flash by. Olujimi Olaniyi and Jimi Boy were mine. I look at your pictures and thank God for the days we shared. Thank you Jimi in so many ways.
I sometimes wonder, what are you doing right now, right this instant? Do you reach for us as we reach for you? I suspect that you have embraced this new place and are giving it your best shot ... as we are. The tears we shed are framed with the hope of this place that you have made so tangible and so close.
Thanking God for His faithfulness and grace. Olujimi Olaniyi you remain forever young in that special place in our hearts. Prosper and grow in God's Kingdom.
We love you for always.
Kofi, Abiola and your nephews."
