"Dapo. I really still don't understand if this is a joke, I'm in shock. Why and how I don't get. It's unbelievable my friend is gone to be with The Lord. Haha kilode, at such a tender age, why will death leave evil people and take a Goodman.  Can't stop the tears Dapo. January 2015 you made my stay in Jand  memorable , always looking out, ever calm Dapo, humane, genuine and positive Dapo. Oluwa  why are guys in their 40s  dying , Olorun  ejowo if its our sin. I'm really sad that death taketh my bosom friend in his prime. We however take solace in the fact that you are resting in the arms of your creator, and in HIS word that says "iku  mu  olododo lo Saaju ojo ibi". This is also a wake up call for the quick to give our  lives to The Lord. Sleep on beloved Dapo till we meet at the ressurection morning. Our Christs School class of '83 will sorely miss you. Maasun Olufe ki o si maa sinmi. Journey well Journey well goodman.  Goodnight bro."

"Dapo, it is so sad and traumatic that death took you away at this time. You were a jolly good fellow and a very lovable man. When we met last year December during our School Alumni Set' End of the Year Party. It was a nice reunion with you after 27 years of passing out from the school. We never thought that will be the last time we will set our eyes on you. God knows best as we can't question his sovereignty over humanity. Good night, Dapo and rest well in the bosom of your creator. Almighty God will continue to comfort the members of your family and give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss."
