A Tribute to My Dad, My Hero Dad, I didn’t expect to say bye now. I thought I was going to see you atleast once more before this day, for this I am sad at so many things I couldn’t do for you or say as well as the fact that I was late in arranging your visit. ♦◊♦ I remembered as a child how I used to love been around you, I followed you everywhere, from office to church, I was called Daddy’s secretary back then because I followed you. Even in my mid forties, I still consider myself a “daddy’s girl”. You were my ‘Popsi’ and I loved you to bits despite all issues. The bond we share is unlike any other connections for we spoke about everything and anything. ♦◊♦ Dad, I love you for an infinite number of reasons. I feel so blessed to have had you as my father, you taught me about God, you showed us the way in a world full with false religions and worships. You brought us up in the way of God and showed us that God is all we need in a world of challenges and these helped me in my most trying times. ♦◊♦ Thank you for providing me and my siblings a family, the physical and emotional security you provided. I remembered as a child our numerous beach outings, our Apapa amusement park outing and so many family events we enjoyed growing up with you and our darling mum. ♦◊♦ Thank you for the gifts of ‘fanta and biscuits’ you gave me whenever I came 1 st in the class and your support through to uni. thank you for going all the way to my Uni in Ogbomosho to obtain my degree certificate when I requested for it for my document application. Thank you for listening to me whenever I called in my distress and your encouragements. I love you Popsi. Adieu Dad. May your soul rest in perfect peace.
