A RARE LEGEND - REVD. B.O OLAREWAJU Daddy, you came, you saw and you conquered. There can never be a father with such a great impact to his generation like you !!! January 17th 2019, the day I dreaded most finally came when I received that call you passed on. I cried with all the memories of your love and sacrifices towards your children and particularly me. We were great allies. We conquered together,you taught me all I know today I cried with all the memories of your discipline, hardwork and truthfulness. You made everyone fall in without pressure just by leading by example I cried with memories of how you bore the torch of education and inspired many family and friends to attain education. You saved so many generations from abyss of ignorance,regret and intellectual failure I cried with memories of your humility and liveliness. No dull moment with you... all our friends and folks always want to be around you to learn,be happy and appreciate life I cried with memories of your selflessness,sacrifices and leadership spirit in times of despair. You gave everything even when you don’t have anything. At least you give hope when it seems there is nothing to offer Finally, I rejoiced and full of gladness because you knew Christ. You achieved ALL by his Grace. You fought the good fight of Faith and there lays before you a Crown . Am so proud to be your son! I celebrate you my ‘Reverend Gentleman’...A rare legend you were and will ever be.

To everything under the sun there is a season. A time to be born and a time to die. An iroko tree has just fallen and the entire forest feels the vibration of its fall. I cried all day long after receiving the sad news of my father’s passing; I was constantly checking my phone and hoping to receive another message saying my father was alive again. I was home alone with my little children when I heard the news and they were wondering what has suddenly gone wrong? They asked me; Daddy are you alright? Daddy please play with us, daddy can I get you some water? When they come of age, I will tell them the special story of a unique grand-father who showered me with an overflow of care and abundance of love. Daddy, you loved me with passion and I will forever be grateful for your love. I studied very hard at school, so I could pay back some of your love and make you feel proud of me because you were also very passionate about my education. Today, my career and every other accomplishments are all products of your investments in me. Rest in peace daddy. Until we meet again at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ, I love you beyond measure. You are a legend in my heart. Legends don’t die, they continue to live on in our minds and thoughts.
