Still seems like a dream to me, I still find it hard to come to terms with this devastating reality. I can still recall vividly the conversation we had on February 3rd, your last birthday the banters we shared and how ebullient you sounded. Adieu my alternate daddy, the only Daddy Machine I ever knew.
Mummy all I can say is continue to rest on in the bosom of the Lord with your sweetheart. The memories of both of you shall ever remain sweet, your kindness, generosity, openness and simplicity.
Both of you made me tour Nigeria, right from my Mountain school experience in Jos in 1983, Sea school Lagos in 1984, and even hosting Naomi and myself in your house in Abuja after our wedding in 2003.
Several times while still in secondary school, both of you will just drive in from Lagos to Abeokuta and arrive before 7:00am on my resumption day as I prepare to go to boarding school, how you kept tabs on those dates still amaze me.
I remember those many nights on the balcony in Alagbado jisting till very late at night, after NEPA had done their worst; those experiences shared still help me till today.
When I had a gap year in medical school, and I came to Lagos unannounced to our Fadeyi base, you took me in as usual, and introduced me to your personal physician Prof. Adebusoye who also accepted me and transferred his love for you to me. He mentored me and taught me the rudiments of private practice which has positively affected my practice till date making me to love mentoring also.
Your words of wisdom still ring in my ears daddy, your popular phrase "ma binu si mi omo mi, pele"
Mummy you still remain the only person whom after I gave a gift, thanked me and looking straight into my eyes asked "have you given your mother also?" Such selfless attitude.
May the Lord grant you both eternal rest in Jesus name, till we meet again to part no more.
Fare thee well Daddy and Mummy.

Olumide and Naomi Alao. Abuja.

Several times I picked my pen to write but couldn't because of tears!!! To write tribute for ONE yes but for TWO dearest to my heart BROS OLU & ALAKE ALAO. (EASY BROS).
I woke with the song I SURRENDER ALL on February 5th. To me it was just a song so I was singing it. It wasn't the first time that GOD will give me a song from sleep.
It is normal for Ministers to pray with us in the Palace. The shocking news was broken during the prayers. Of course I fainted. I recovered to face the reality that my loving brother Olu aka Easy is gone without warning because i called to ask about his wife at about 8pm on the 4th.
   Ha iku doro. O mu egbon mi Oluremi omo alajadana lo.
   He calls me Yeye from the onset. He guided Olabode and Iyabo his siblings very well. He was the eyes of Alaos.
Thank you brother for that wisdom you used to guide me in my marriage. Most of the time I followed your advice. (if you quarrel with your husband ten times,He will win ten times.) There is no perfect man or woman.
Ma fi owo ara re tu ile re ka.

He was a good man. A man of the people....from children, teenagers,adults even the aged knows baba Alao in Aderupoko.
Good testimonies from the landlords in Agu close about my brother made my yoke light. They said if he were to be buried in Lagos the crowd would have been to much for us to handle.
Methodist Church Agege will not forget Ch. & Ch. Mrs Alao in a hurry.
Methodist Church Ikole will miss them terribly.
Bros was a plain man,good organiser, very transparent and an exceptional giver. Sometimes he will surprise me with credit in my phone.
The two of you left a vacuum that cannot be filled in my heart. I love you both even after death. Your legacies lives on.

My brother's last message on WhatsApp reads....BEWARE OF ONE DAY. The first line says one day you will lock your door but you will not be able to open it....."sound warning to me"
I replied...."one day we will all agree all is vanity."
You love me so much. Who will call me at around 6am and say....You know Kabiyesi loves pounded yam so give him today and i will tell him come home and supervise my cooking. He promised they will soon move down. Truly they've gone home.

Ch. Alake Alao. I whispered to her ears after their marriage that she is my sister and not my sister in law. We laughed and we remained sisters till death snatched her from me.

At this juncture I say thank you to Alao family and friends that stood by us in calling in visiting, prayers, in cash and kind. Those that were physically present the Lord will repay your kindness. On behalf of Bros Bode, Iyabo and their children I say thank you. Odun a jina sira ni oruko Jesu.

Being with Alake in her dying minutes open another chapter in my life that true OJA LAYE. She left the market right in front of me and headed home. I and Lara couldn't stop her. Omolara held on to her thinking she will come back. That peace like a river enveloped her. Rest on Mama Dele.
To omo re ki o le fun o ni isimi.
I thank God for the wonderful children they were blessed with in Dele Lara Demoo and Yinkus. They gave their parents the best available. The Lord will replenish you bountifully IJN.

REST ON THE TWO LOVE BIRDS
TO LIVE IS CHRIST.
TO DIE IS GAIN.
I am still speechless.

With Gratitude to God for a life well spent. It is difficult for us to put into words our pain and sorrow as a family. Daddy and Mummy always had a smile and good cheer for everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate and extended family of our dearly departed. May they rest in perfect peace. Amen. The Family of Ch. Kehinde Alao (Akure)

Oh death, where is your sting; and O grave, where is your victory? You may think you have won a victory by taking away from us the loving duo of my brother Oluremi and his amiable wife Alake. But I assure you that your apparent victory is hollow. Yes, you have denied us the continued enjoyment of the beautiful life of our departed duo. Our loss is heaven’s gain.

What can I write about my brother that will do enough justice to the most transparently loving life of a human being that I knew? Or that of an ultra-simple life of a dedicated and devoted wife to my brother? How do I begin to write a befitting tribute to this most accommodating and God-fearing couple now translated to glory in God’s Kingdom?
Brother Olu, as I related with him for over 50 years, was perhaps the most kind-hearted person I ever met. I never for once met him with a frown on his face. He was a family man to the core. As attested to by one of his junior brothers, Brother Olu was the central person in the Alao Clan who would go any length to look out for his siblings and relations. And once you have met and interacted with him once, you almost automatically became one of his family members. I married his junior sister, my loving and caring Olori Eyesorun-Eyelua Iyabode Aribisala but we never related with each other as in-laws until his demise.

Brother Olu loved his wife till the end. He was so devastated by the sickness of his wife that he already lamented openly how he would cope without her if she should die before him. He just couldn’t cope with her wife being so sick. So it wasn’t so much of a surprise when he went into coma suddenly and never came out of it on this side of the divide. It wasn’t so much of a surprise either that the wife followed barely a month after his death, despite all the care of this world expended on her by the children. We can clearly say that these two loved themselves so much that they refused to allow death do them part!

I give God all the glory for the bit of life we spent together. I thank God for what we were able to achieve together as family. I thank God for giving us such loving children who have tried all within their powers to return the love and care we had for them. You have left us now but we have no doubt that you are both happily worshipping God in His kingdom already. There is no gainsaying that we will miss you but we give all glory to God for the beautiful life of service to God and mankind that you both lived.

We bid you farewell, until we meet at the bosom of the Lord on resurrection day. Thank you so much my dear brother and wife for the good example and role model you were to us. We love you but the Lord loves you more. Adieu.

Tribute to my darling Uncle
Hmmmm! It’s hard for me to accept the fact that my uncle daddy, Hamadiya as I fondly called him passed away on that fateful day 5th February 2021.My uncle is such a person that loves every members of the family,he’s such a man that could not bear anyone going through any pains, he will feel the pains to the bone as if he’s the one going through the pains.He fought a good fight,finished his course and kept the faith to the end.He was amiable,loving,selfless and generous.And show his wife an agape love taking her along.Good night daddy, good night mummy.Mrs Kehinde Fadiya.

All I can say is to thank God that you came, you lived, you gave love to us, you mattered by all standards. You proved what true love and caring is all about between couples and families. I was opportune to see and shared from your loving extraordinary life. My dear auntie and loving uncle, May you find peace and joy in the heavenly places. May you find yourselves a better place there in face to face with our eternal God. You will be greatly missed, because you won’t be with us again. I saddened that death struck and took you from us. We are at the same time glorifying God for all you are able to do for families and humanity!!! Good night!!!!

It is well with your soul . A simple , nice and gentle woman . Very loving . Coming to marry our uncle was a blessing to the family . The union was near perfect for years and even to death . No wonder he couldn't see you in pains . Sleep on beloved uncle and aunt.

Dear Mom and Dad, it took us a while to be able to put these words together but even then words still fail us.
You were both loving examples to emulate and cared for us at every opportunity.

If I don't remember much I remember our first visit to Lagos in 1993 and subsequent visits to Lagos where I always made it a point to see you both. If we had a place to call home it was at yours and I never got enough of the pampering that Daddy was constantly giving. Mommy with all the stories she shared about how my parents met are still fresh memories. Even though I last physically saw you both in 2018, atleast we managed to sneak a couple of selfies which we now hold dear. The first time you met Ronke when I brought her home and it was lovely to see the way she connected with you both like glue to paper. I remember that's when you coined a nickname for her. All these memories and more will stay on with me
- Kayode

I still remember the days I visited Mom at Agbado and I always left with plantain and eggs, Mom would ensure I didn't leave empty handed no matter how much I objected and then she would insist on walking with me to the point I could get a napep to the road and Dad would ask me to be careful on the road as I leave; I always got home and fried my plantain with a full heart. Your voice saying 'Aronkishow' whenever I spoke with you still rings freshly in my memory and I will miss our conversations. Thank you Mom and Dad for those days of caring, it will forever be cherished
- Ronke

Mom, we are glad we still got the opportunity to speak with you, even though briefly in your last days and we will hold that last conversation dearly in our hearts. Hearing the news that you have left us and accepting it is something we are still trying to settle into but we are thankful for God's comfort and strength for the family as a whole.
Above all, we are at peace knowing you are both together in the bossom of our Lord and that we will meet again at His feet. We love you both so much and we miss you already.

Daddy and Mummy Alao, the news of your demise is a great shock to me. Losing you was unexpected. You are a great parent, awesome, loving, jovial, and selfless couple who touched so many lives positively. For a fact, two golden hearts have stopped beating, but hearts that has touched so many lives can not help but live on in those it loved. What a great and immeasurable loss! but so are the impactful lives you lived and the love and memories that are left behind, to be forever treasured. Your love, care, encouragement leaves an indelible imprint on my life. Adieu Mummy and Daddy Alao

Wicked deaths as I'm writing this tribute on my brother and his wife Chief A.O. Alao and Chief and Mrs A. A. Alao sobbing and lamenting.  This was a painful experience that shocked me into my bone marrow, who could think that the cool hands of death could snatch away my Chief and Chief Mrs in ten years to come, but God knows why, and nor of us can query the Lord. Unquestionable God we surrender to your will, grant them eternal rest and forgive all their transgressions, we've lost icons too early, Daddy, you are such a caring, loving , gentle man with high integrity like wise my darling wife. We will surely miss you dearly especially your call while checking on my family asking of us one after the other. Your prayers and advise on how I should take care of my husband and the rest can not be quantified. Rest in perfect Peace till we meet to part no more. Adeiu Bros, omo oligbo, omo ira linla tapa ko gun esin, fo ya, omo onikan gudugbu aro somi mu ligbo, aromasodu from your house wives, sun ire o.

A TRIBUTE FOR MR. OLUREMI AND MRS. ALAKE ALAO
FROM ELDER AND MRS. R.O. ALAO
I find it extremely heart aching in writing what you are reading now. This is because if things have been the way it should, Oluremi would have been the one to write what cruel circumstances of death have now forced on me to write.
I am actually in a quandary as to what to write! How do I catalogue the series of activities that characterize our togetherness from childhood? As a matter of fact, Oluremi started demonstrating his love and concern for me from the early days of our existence, from the time he would collect my school fees, other needed items from our father and bring them to me at Egbe-Oba High School.
Olu and Alake trudged through life together facing series of challenges which God, in His mercies, helped them through. The couple lived peaceful lives, Olu was a wonderful home maker and Alake stood for peace at all times. They were active in their services to God and humanity and God blessed them with vibrant children who were well nurtured and are blessings to the society. The couple always allowed peace to reign in their home. Alake’s life actually revolved around Oluremi’s own and because she was a responsible and reliable woman, she hardly ever questioned whatever the husband wanted for the family.
The saddening news of Oluremi’s death on 5th February, 2 days after his birthday dealt me a big blow. You my readers only need to have heard us chatting on the 2nd and 3rd of February, 2021 about the birthday not knowing that would be the last conversation we would have together.
Oluremi’s family really stood firmly by my family when I was retired from the Federal Service in 1991. The couple was always ready to assist in anyway; they were always sensitive to the needs of people around them and so they were of immense assistance to their neighbours; in fact, Oluremi’s accommodating posture earned him sobriquet of ‘Area father’ from his neighbours. Alake on her own part was a real quintessence of good manners.
Will this tribute be complete without my mentioning how Alake’s family received me in Jos for the PGDE programme in 1981? You can just imagine how my cordial relationship with this unique family caused my going up North for a course I would have done in the South-west. Oluremi and Alake were simply fantastic in the way they cared for me. I forever remain grateful to officers and men of the Mountain School (Shere Hills, Jos) for accepting me in their folds. Oluremi was simply great. Oluremi and Alake, your unceremonious departure from this planet, earth still gives me pains and that is why your death  remain a pill, too bitter to swallow.
In conclusion, we are consoled by the fact that the couple knew God, walked with him and served God with exceptional fervor in their various fields of life. Your latter days were definitely better than the former (Haggai 2 Vs 9). Like we all know, it is appointed unto man to die once, but after this, the judgment (Heb. 9 vs 27). We should give thanks to God in everything (I Thes. 5 vs 18). We should have the hope that we shall meet Abraham and Alice in paradise when we die. As a couple, they have fought the good fight, they have finished the race on earth and they have kept the faith (II Tim 4 vs 7).
May their gentle souls find a sweet repose and may light perpetual shine on them. Good night!!

Elder and Mrs. R.O. Alao

Daddy, Your demise came to me as a shock. I never knew that my conversation with you on the day of your birthday was going to be the last. You were a man filled with love,care, passion and humility. You took me as your own daughter.l never found any fault in you throughout my stay with your family. Words are not enough to describe your good deeds. You were an epitome of love. Thanks for loving my dear sister to the end and even our family. Rest on till resurrection morning Dad.

Aunty Mi, Aunty mi,tears roll down my cheeks each time the thought of your demise dawn on me. I grew up to know you as my only surviving blood sister. I thought we would be together when our mother will breathe her last . But it pleased God to take you home at this time, who are we to query Him.
Thanks for all you did for me, You were always there for me. Your demise is so painful that l find it difficult to understand. Good night Aunty Oni.
        Your only blood sister,
        Comfort Osadugba ( Mrs).


Daddy and Mummy, You were two persons that l have learnt great lessons from. You loved my wife unconditionally. You were full of life and loved putting smiles on other people's faces. You were tenacious, courageous, and very strong in faith. Your memories will continue to linger on. Rest in the Bossom of our Lord till we meet again. Adieu to a loving couple.

Daddy “Dele”…. As I fondly called you, you were a brother-in-law per excellence whose attitude and character inspired me a lot. Everyone was welcome into your house at any time or day where it was often hard to know who belongs to who (either to you or my sister, your wife). What a loving, humble, amazing and accommodating person you were.
I cherished those hours we shared together precisely on the 25th of September, 2020 but never knew that would be the last.
To my dear sister, you were a family woman full of love, concern and care for both your immediate and extended families. You understood to the core, what the word “ALAJOBI” (FAMILY) meant and you played the role till death. You were a kind, gentle and generous woman of God. Even on your sick bed, you held on to the “FAITH”. I have a strong conviction that you are back home rejoicing with the Angels.
The Bible says “PRECIOUS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD IS THE DEATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS”. DADDY and Mummy of noble character… your memories will surely linger on. Adieu Sir/Ma till resurrection morning and I pray that our good God will uphold your children and grant your beautiful souls eternal rest.

I give glory to God for the lives of Uncle Remi and my sister Oni. I thank God for their Godly children. It saddens my heart to write this tribute now for the two of you but God understands.

Uncle Remi was very caring. When we were growing up in Jos, Plateau State, our father Rt. Rev. J. D. Aluko, Chairman, Methodist church, in Northern Nigeria then would travel for weeks leaving us (Bukola and myself) under his watch. As soon as our father returned, uncle will give adequate report of us.

Also, when in the year 1975 that I sat for my O'Level Cambridge Examinations and cleared all my papers, he was so impressed that he prophesied 'Doctor' into my life. That was what he called me until I eventually got my Ph.D. in 2004.
When he married my sister, the care for us was
Intensified. As soon as our father became the President, Methodist Church, their care of was tremendous. I pray God will take care of all they left behind in Jesus name.

In July 2019, I had the opportunity of meeting my sister during the birthday celebration of our mother, Madam Jumoke Abraham Aluko, not knowing that it would be the time last of seeing her, huuuunnn. Then, I told her to help tell Uncle that his Dr will soon be pronounced a Professor. And after I was pronounced a Professor, I put a call to her to help me tell Uncle. He put a call to me and prayed for me and all mine. His prayers were answered and are still ongoing.

I wish to end this tribute by praying for the children and all that are left behind, that they will be great, they will go places, they are covered with the Blood of Jesus. No evil will befall them and all that are theirs, they are safe under the shadow of the Almighty, in Jesus name. God bless you.
Good night Uncle and my sister, until we meet to part no more.
Prof. Funmi Osakinle (nee Aluko).

It was indeed a sombre and demoralizing day on the 5th of February 2021 when the news of the passing to the great beyond of Bro Abraham Oluremi Alao my very dear brother and a second father to my children was announced. It was shocking as it was unexpected. While still trying to come to terms with the situation, the death of his dearest wife and our mother Yeye Alake Alao happened suddenly on the 26th of March 2021. This finally shattered our hearts that was already broken.

We cannot but reminisce on the beauty of our experiences and the warmth we always felt around both of them. They were homely always hospitable and supportive to our family. Right from the day, they were introduced to my wife (then a spinster), they took a special interest in her and the relationship grew over the years. They were ever there mentoring and monitoring us as the years rolled by. Our children were their children; their joy knew no bounds when Kayode and Kolade took their wives to them for introduction; they supported us physically and financially as a family during the children's weddings and in all our celebrations. This bond was further attested to during Kunle’s visit to Alagbado (Agu Close) in 2019; they never wanted him to leave after enjoying his presence to the fullest.

Bros 'EASY' as he was fondly called in his hay days lived a very easy and humble life. He respected us as a family and never undermined our opinions during family discussions. The times spent with them individually and as a family shall forever remain evergreen in our memories and cherished. To us, you are not gone but only transitioned. Who will call to share the result of Arsenal’s win or Man U’s glory now that you have stepped aside? What a painful irredeemable loss.

Our bond with Bros Olu Alao and family transcends that of only a family to more of a friendship. Our children see it as a "true" and uncommon friendship even though we were family. This same bond can easily be noticed in our children as they are even more united in their grief. Our relationship was deeply rooted in humility, love, and openness.

We will miss them so much, just as their immediate family, who are an extension of our family. Good, godly, and gracious people have left us, and this void will be hard to fill. Our joy however is that they are now resting in the bosom of our Lord.

Adieu, dearest brother and sister!

Mom and Dad were like our second parents. They were very loving and kind. They richly contributed to our childhood memories. I remember growing up with Dele, Lara, Demola, and Yinka. We attended the same secondary school, fun summer times, camps at Sea School, celebrations, and holidays ... We were always in each other’s houses. Whenever they visited in school, it was just like my parents were visiting.

We wish that you could stay longer but God says, it is time to come home and rest. We love you both but God love you most. Keep resting in the bosom of the Lord. We will surely miss you. Adieu!

Tribute to great Heroes, Chief/ chief (Mrs) Oluremi Alao, to live is Christ, and to die is gain, these words has been my consolation, since the demise of the duo to internity.
Chief Alice Alake Alao, you are my blood sister, a relative, my bosom friend from childhood, and above all, we the two, also married two bosom friends, as our husbands, that was how closed we were.
Both of you, were the best family friends, anyone could possibly ask for.
What can I say, or which story can I narrate of our journeys in life, very numerous indeed.
Thank God for the lives both of you lived, unseparated till death.
Both of you lived a fulfilled lives.
Thank you all, for everything we shared together.
Indeed, the memory of the just is blessed.
Good night, our beloved friends, until Resurrection day, when we meet to part no more.
I and my husband will miss the both of you.
We all loved you, but Almighty God loves you best.
Good night, till we all meet in the morning.

Daddy and Mummy Alao were exemplary couples. It is a great and painful loss but we have that assurance that you have impacted a great deal on us all while in this body.

I celebrate you both even in death. You were both loving, caring, pleasant to me while I made visits on weekends while at Yabatech.Daddy would jokingly tell me to fix myself a meal in the kitchen stating that ''aunt e ko la pon" and mummy would always quietly smiled. They made me felt at home while being away from my immediate family.

The love and connection that you shared was a great one, so this was no surprise. But we pride in the hope that God knows best and you are both lovingly resting in the blossom of the Lord till we meet again.......Rest on

Grandpa played the role of a friend, father and a grandfather. He always wanted the best for me and wanted me to be successful in life, He advises me about the kinds of friends. I should move with, He was fantastic.
As I grew older, we became closer and communicated better. There was a time that he was alone at home and I volunteered to stay with him, we had a lot of candid conversations and he wanted the best for everyone including me. Grandpa cared for everybody. The day I heard about his death I was shocked and confused because I was with him during his last days, I cried and cried. Grandpa I miss you so much and I cannot stop missing you.May your soul rest in perfect peace....

Grandma is an amazing person,she was always ready to pick me and my sister at up anytime. I have had a lot of presentations and grandma always attended them. Whenever I had stage fright, I just look at her and I become calm, Grandma is wonderful, she played the role of a mother to me. She would always sit me down and tell me that I should promise to always make her proud. She attended my graduations and she was really looking forward to see me finish secondary school and sing for me. Dear Grandma I know that you are in a better place. I miss you so much.

An extraordinary couple, Daddy and Mummy Alao, as my siblings and I fondly
call you ...it is hard to imagine you are no longer here in body with us... your Godliness, kindness, care, openness, love, integrity and humility radiates gracefully to everyone around you.

Thank you Daddy for helping me during my National Youth Service period in 2006, your advice has stuck with me through the years. Mummy, you are a virtuous woman. I recall both of you graced my wedding ceremony in 2015.

Many Generations after both of you will hear of your good works while in the body. May your gentle souls rest in the peace and power of our Lord Jesus Christ till we meet again in the Kingdom of our Father.

Daddy & Mummy Alao...you will be dearly missed!

*"By their fruit we shall know them"* Either I had one on one encounter with grandpa and grandma I don't know, but with the little encounter with their children, it really speaks a lot about their kindness and generosity and the kind of stuff they are made of..
May their souls rest in the bosom of Jesus. Amen..
*Rest in peace!*

‘Some people are born great. Some achieve greatness. Some have greatness thrust upon them.’

In your case, mummy and daddy, you achieved greatness and thrust same on not just your beautiful children, but on all the people that ever came in contact with you!

Your passing therefore was a huge blow for everyone! Though the two of you are no longer on this plane, your excellent legacies will remain indefinitely in the hearts and minds of all the people that had the luck of encountering your benevolence.

May the good Lord grant your immediate and extended family members the fortitude to bear this great loss.

May the good Lord accept both of you into His bosom.

Daddy and mummy Upstairs as I and my siblings call you.. the only people that call me by my English name Lydia.. Growing up under your care is one of the best gift God gave I and my younger ones. You took us as your grandchildren, cared for us , inculcated discipline, prayed and supported us.. You taught us the importance of education and I am grateful today for those words of encouragement and chastisement.
   You were always willing to assist.i remember one time mummy removed her sim from her phone and gave it to me because I was phone less. Her words was “ how will a young girl like you be using a small phone, you need the android phone more than me “ that was how selfless you are ..Your memories will live in my heart forever. Rest In Peace Mummy and Daddy upstairs.

Daddy your exit was quite painful. Your voice was loud and clear when I spoke with you on phone shortly before your last birthday. I never knew I was hearing your cool and clear voice for the last time. You asked after everyone in your usual manner, you requested I pray for mummy which I did. You and mummy were good examples of a Christian marriage worthy of emulations. The departure of the two of you at such a close range wasn't strange to me because of your closeness.
We will definitely miss you both, rest on dad and Mom till the day of resurrection

  A PEEP INTO VANITY OF LIFE.........When i look upon the tombs of the great, every emotion of envy dies in me.when i read epitaphs of the beautiful, every inordinate desires goes out.when i meet with the grief of parents upon a tombstone my heart melts with compassion . When i read several dates on the tomb of some that died yesterday and some six hundred year ago, i consider that great day when we shall all of us be contemporaries and make our appearance together.~~vanity of life for as for man his days are as grass as a flower of the field so he flourisheth, for the wind passeth over it and is gone and the place thereof shall know it no more. Adieu my brother and the loving wife.Accept my sincere condolences.... ..Lanre Alao.

My official daddy in C&ltc, you were a loving husband, father and granddaddy and that is why mummy wasn't able to stay without you. May you both rest in perfect peace and all that you left behind receive God's protection and favour In Jesus Mighty Name.

Mr and Mrs Alao were very simple, receptive and approachable. Baba's emotional intelligence was second to none. He understood situations and felt for you as if it was his cause.
They were very generous, helpful and pleasant. My children would always talk about the reception they received while waiting for us to pick them at the Alaos, after school. They feared God and their integrity was intact.
Their home was a good example of a Christian home. I pray their souls rest in peace.

Though I didn't have personal interaction with you both. However my wife testified of your kind heartedness, simplicity and hospitality. Rest on in the bossom of your Lord.

I glorify God for the exemplary life lived by this special beings. The simplicity and love with which this special couple lived their lives and the numbers of lives they touched including myself will ever remain in my memory. They were both made for each other, no wonder they departed same time. It would have been difficult for any of them to remain in the absence of the other. I use to call him Brother Olu because of his simply disposition and he never complained. May their ever loving soul rest in peace.

Dearest Grandpa you are the best! You are not only my Grandfather, you are also my friend. You are easy to talk to and you always have a different pet name for me. I smile remembering our strolls around the area. You will always praise and tease me. I remember you will stay in front of me and hold my hands each time we take a stroll. It hurts that I won't get to hug you again. The last time we saw you asked : " Tumtum when will we see ?" You maybe gone but you live forever in my heart.


Grandma Aderupoko. My Birthday month mate. You always call me my baby. You were not only my granny, you were my mother. I love to cuddle you and how you would always smile. You attended all my school events. You always had time to visit us every week. Words fail me to describe the bond we had. You could tell if something was bothering me. Since you have gone I feel a piece of my heart is gone. I will forever hold on to the very beautiful memories we have. You were a role model. Good night my dearest Grandma Aderupoko. I love you so much.

Still seems like a dream to me, I still find it hard to come to terms with this devastating reality. I can still recall vividly the conversation we had on February 3rd, your last birthday the banters we shared and how ebullient you sounded. Adieu my alternate daddy, the only Daddy Machine I ever knew.
Mummy all I can say is continue to rest on in the bosom of the Lord with your sweetheart. The memories of both of you shall ever remain sweet, your kindness, generosity, openness and simplicity.
Both of you made me tour Nigeria, right from my Mountain school experience in Jos in 1983, Sea school Lagos in 1984, and even hosting Naomi and myself in your house in Abuja after our wedding in 2003.
Several times while still in secondary school, both of you will just drive in from Lagos to Abeokuta and arrive before 7:00am on my resumption day as I prepare to go to boarding school, how you kept tabs on those dates still amaze me.
I remember those many nights on the balcony in Alagbado jisting till very late at night, after NEPA had done their worst; those experiences shared still help me till today.
When I had a gap year in medical school, and I came to Lagos unannounced to our Fadeyi base, you took me in as usual, and introduced me to your personal physician Prof. Adebusoye who also accepted me and transferred his love for you to me. He mentored me and taught me the rudiments of private practice which has positively affected my practice till date making me to love mentoring also.
Your words of wisdom still ring in my ears daddy, your popular phrase "ma binu si mi omo mi, pele"
Mummy you still remain the only person whom after I gave a gift, thanked me and looking straight into my eyes asked "have you given your mother also?" Such selfless attitude.
May the Lord grant you both eternal rest in Jesus name, till we meet again to part no more.
Fare thee well Daddy and Mummy.

Olumide and Naomi Alao. Abuja.

I have a whole lot of stories to share about this wonderful duo especially Mummy Alao..  
   There was a time while growing up, we lived as their tenant .. on Saturdays, my parent usually attend church services and I and my siblings were always in their care. 
        This fateful evening ,We decided to stay downstairs. As our usual routine of always going upstairs, mummy did  not see us and she called on us to come immediately, that’s when i and my immediate brother realized  that our youngest brother was not indoors anymore. he was about a year old.. immediately mummy told us to start looking for him or else we were in trouble. I and my immediate brother went looking for him till we saw him and took him back home.. 
   Mummy surprisingly welcomed us inside the house without shouting or saying anything , little did we know that our cane was waiting for us . She flogged I and my immediate brother ( Tomiwa) mercilessly ..
     After this intense flogging and we were still sobbing , she gave us food that we should eat .. I can still remember that I was eating the food with tears in my eyes This is one memory that I can never forget
