"A special dad is hard to find deep in my heart and memory is kept of the one we loved and shall never forget. Dad you fell asleep without saying goodbye but memory of you will never fade away, in God’s care you rest above in my heart you rest with love. I wished you could have stayed forever. If dreams were not dreams and dreams come true, I would not have been here, I would be with you. Distance is one thing that keeps us apart, but Dad you will always remain in my heart. A special smile, a special face someone I can’t replace.
Dad, I love you so much and forever will be, you fill a place that no one can replace. Rest in the bosom of the Lord Almighty, till we meet again at Jesus feet.
Adieu Baba mi ooo.

"Dad, your exit was a terrible shock you never said l’m leaving, you forgot to say goodbye you were gone before we knew it and only God knows why we all denied and rejected it, but when it became reality and as thorns in our wounds, we were angry at ourselves because we couldn’t do nothing to prevent your death. We felt guilty because we failed wholly in some ways to avert your demise.
Now, we are filled with (SAD) sorrow, anxiety and depression but as believers of words of God, with prayers and supplication we are victorious through God that strengthens us. And we were able to accept the reality and let go the turmoil but the grief never disappear totally. Engaging in our activities of daily living without your presence might be a difficult but with God all things are possible.
A million times we needed you
A million times we cried
If love alone could have served you,
You never would have died
We scrolled through your heart and found many uncompleted mission left behind emotionally, physically and spiritually but the good news was that you reconciled and we’re sanctified before you left. We promised to improve on the legacy and make your name great again in life we love you dearly, in death we love you still, in our hearts we hold a place that only you can fill. Dad, remembering you is easy, we do that every day. But missing you is serious headache that never goes away.
Adio padre hasta que nos encontremos a la parte mes

"Tayo, your death came as a rude shock to me because the last time we talked, there was no sign that you were going to die soon. It is a pity your unplanned journey lead to your untimely death. Many refer to you as a gentleman. Until your death you are a very jovial, friendly and humorous person, a very social, hardworking and a resourceful man always trying to make end meet. I cannot forget how we started but “Kokoro ko je kagbadun obi to gbo” I love you and remain loyal till end. Again I love you but God loves you most.
Sleep well.
Your wife – Mrs Bosede Akinola"

"This is a tribute from a very close friend of Daddy, Surveyor Folorunso Folowosele, in fact, Daddy's wedding BestMan
ABRAHAM AKINTAYO AREMU AKINOLA                                                                                                   (1941-2016)

WHILE in a few moments of repose sitting on my bed, I saw a sad face. Soon I recognized my own face, staring at me in the mirror on the wall at the foot end of the bed. I have been pensive since I learnt of the death of Abraham Akintayo Aremu Akinola. This tribute is primarily for the living to learn lessons whenever our good God gives us the grace to do so. For what our friend now is awaits everyone. “There is no man that has power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither has he power in the day of death.”

Akintayo Aremu Akinola was born June 12, 1941, to the late Chief Samuel Akinola Sawe of Ijamo by the late Madam Ibilola Daramola of Iloro, both quarters in Ilesa, Osun State. He fell asleep suddenly July 25, 2016, in his house at Ilesa during a brief illness.
Indeed, Akintayo Akinola was one of my intimate friends. I recall I was his best man. As much as Satan tried to separate us in life, the devil failed. “Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains… For He is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us…”

Akintayo and I had a heartwarming dialogue during my visit to him at the Wesley Guild Hospital Ilesa. We also spoke July 14, 2016, on phone when he belatedly congratulated me on my Birthday of the previous day. This was a long chat in which he told me of his hospital appointment that precipitated the delay. It was Akintayo’s reciprocal greeting to my earlier text message to him on June 12, 2016, his 75th Birthday.

All those recent contacts between Akintayo and me were made possible by God through the indefatigable Patriot Dr. Obi Daramola. Surely, the Assistant Secretary of the Ijesha Patriotic Klub (IPK) has been performing a noble task. His information from time to time on each real or ‘absentee’ member of IPK has been mending or building fences within and without. God bless him for his unrelenting unique services to his friends and other people.

Patriots and friends, the preacher has not ceased to sing loud and clear, “Seek ye not repose but watch and pray.” In addition, recall always what Prophet Balaam told Balak, Moab king: “Who can count the dust of Jacob… Let me die the death of the righteous and let my end be like his!”

We pray for the comfort of the Holy Spirit on Akintayo’s spouses and children and his extended families as well as friends.
We also pray the soul of our departed dear colleague to rest in perfect peace.
