""2 YEARS OF MY LIFE WITHOUT YOU"

My daddy" I would call you and you would say...  "Omo mi" in Ondo dialect. You tried for me to speak Ondo dialect so fluently but the more I tried, I was never on point and we would both laugh over it.

Daddy..... I still try to speak the funny and interesting dialect but I am not yet there. I hope I will make you proud one day by perfecting it.

I can't believe its 2 years living my life without you, to be honest, it's hard but God has been my rock and solace and I am grateful to HIM.

I am so happy for the privilege to be called your daughter; you made me the strong person I am today.

You neither gave me eminence nor wealth, but you gave me blood untainted with a vice,
And opulence of undiluted health. You were honest and unpurchasable and kind;
You were clean in heart, and body, and in mind and you touched every soul that came your way with your beautiful smile and kind heart.

I awake to the memory of your soft voice and gorgeous smile always and it's hard to know
You are gone for a while.

Keep resting in the bosom of your dear Lord my hero, till we meet to part no more.
Love you, my daddy, love you so much."

"TRIBUTE TO AN ICON OF PURPOSE!!!!!! 2years!!!!!!

April 19th 2015 started with so much vigour, passion,zeal,enthusiasm.......the major highlight of the day was the strategic meeting I had earlier scheduled with the members of the mature singles group I coordinate in Church. I was really looking forward to the meeting because it was all  about PURPOSE! It was all about DESTINIES! It was all about IMPACT! Little did i know what God had in mind for us on that day.............To cut the story short,20 minutes into putting finishing touches to my dressing up, BABA FADAYOMI had passed on right in my hands..........My best friend,my confidant,my everly dependable lover had gone to be with the Lord,it pleased God at that moment to take my ONLY COMPANION............

Dear irreplaceable Legend, these 2years have been "glorious,gracious,beautiful and lovely".... only God can truly understand the REAL MEANING of those words in quote........only God can truly understand how it feels to wake up everyday without being with THE ONLY COMPANION you have known close to 4decades of your life...... Only God knows the amount of vacuum created by your GLORIOUS EXIT and only HIM  have filled in COMPLETELY.

Baaaaaaaaaabs Fads, my teacher, mentor, role model and my dearest love. Words cannot describe how GREATLY we missed you. The colossal impact your life  made on us your biological children and the world at large alone makes it more EMOTIONAL&OVERWHELMING............... Your unflinching and passionate commitment towards RAISING us up, your tenacity, doggedness, kindness, selflessness and uncompromising integrity in the way you laboured over us day and night were incomparable and unquantifiable. You never ceased to render those endearing shoulders and large heart of yours sacrificially and selflessly. You "truly lived" all the years of  your life to make our lives more lovable, enviable and meaningful and you "TRANSITED" so that we might "LIVE".

You taught us that honesty,peace,love,positive impact are GODLY ATTRIBUTES which MUST be held with the highest sense of esteem and reverence.........You were indeed an ICON,a RARE GEM and an ENIGMA.

Dad mi, thanks for those world class, timeless and enduring legacies of yours. Of a truth and undoubtedly they have made us what God wants us to be, and we promise that those legacies LIVE ON. 

Companion of life, I miss u sooooo much ooooooo, your thoughts, our gists and laughs are unerasable memories (YOU KNOW AM A PSYCHOLOGIST,MO N GBA DUN E, AM ALRIGHT, KIRIKASABABAKASAMAKA and lots more) .......those were  lovable moments,those were our precious times,those were our treasured moments.

I thought that time is the biggest healer, but your transition has proved me so wrong because with each passing day, I miss you even more..... Baaaaaaabs Fads, I miss you so so so so much.I sincerely miss you. You remain and will continue to reign supreme in our hearts. We cherish you greatly,we adore you passionately and we  love you eternally. Rest on dad ,rest on dearly beloved.

Our only consolation as Christians is the indepth understanding that death has no power over us, NOT AT ALL! You ONLY moved unto the greatest of all glories and our uttermost joy is that someday and at the right time, we will all meet to celebrate our crowns of glory eternally, amen

* Dear all,Baba Fadayomi fought a good fight of faith, he finished his course enviably........the big question to you is WHAT ARE YOU FIGHTING FOR?" John 17:4"

"We MISSED A RARE GENTLE MAN.
I have known Daddy Fadayomi (fondly call Babs Fad) for over 15 years, and I find in him a friend, a father and a mentor. For those of us who were close to you, we'll forever be thankful for all those times you stood by us, for all the truths you made us see. For all the joy you brought to our lives, all the wrong that you made right and for every dream you made come true in our lives. You were a rallying point to all your friends, colleagues and associates. Your love for God was immeasurable, you love to sing and praise the Lord.
You were blunt, caring, highly disciplined, friendly, forthright, gregarious, organized, principled, a perfect coordinator and a seasoned organizer.
You fought gallantly and bravely till the end.
Good night, Goog night. We shall forever relive your memory.
Rest on the blossom of your Father until we meet to part no more."

"Oh death.....where is thy sting, oh grave... where is thy victory!!! The sting of death is sin and the strength of sin is the law.... But thanks be to God who gives us victory through our lord Jesus Christ...1st Cor 15:55-57.

Francis Olamobisi Fadayomi our Hero....,
You brought us to life, you cared for us
You stood in the position of father and all for us...
You loved God with your heart to the extent that your pastor had to call your children to say Baba need to take it easy because you will be the first to get to church and you will almost be the last to leave even in your great age....you truly served God passionately.
You suffered just to make us what we are.
Your smiles makes us feel good anytime and any day
You assured us that you will always be there and you kept to your word.....
You talk to us like a friend, father, confidant and most importantly a mentor in your own capacity...
How we wish you still live on physically to behold your beauty and your soft voice again...
But thanks be to God who always causes us to triumph in Christ....  
We have no doubt that you are resting in the bosom of your lord....
We love you daddy... we love you our Hero...
But God loves you the most...
We assure you that we will make your legacy live on...
Keep watching over us as your maker as always done...
You will forever live in our heart.....
Keep living in eternity till we meet to part no more.....
Goodnight Our love!!! Our Hero.."

"MY ICON! MY RARE GEM!! MY ENIGMA!!!

Dear irreplaceable Legend,

Your birth still stands as the most remarkable, beautiful, terrific and fulfilling moment in the history of men. Heaven opened up and God in the fullness of his mercy, abundance, grace and love blessed us with the most humble, honest, hardworking, loyal, disciplined and principled Icon and enigma whose divine endowments and laudable prowess in birthing and shaping destinies cannot be overemphasized.

Baba Fadayomi, my teacher, mentor, best friend, companion, and love. Words cannot describe the colossal impact your life has made on us your biological children and the world at large. Your unflinching and passionate commitment towards the work of God, your tenacity, doggedness, kindness, selflessness and uncompromising integrity in the way you discharged your duties and laboured over us day and night are incomparable and unquantifiable. You taught us that honesty, truthfulness, discipline and GODLY PRINCIPLES are uttermost virtues and values which MUST be held with the highest sense of esteem and dignity.

Dad mi, you never ceased to render those endearing shoulders and large heart of yours sacrificially and selflessly, you lived every year of your life to make OURS more lovable, enviable and meaningful and You also transited  so that we might have LIFE ABUNDANTLY.
Dearie mi, love mi, thanks for those world class, timeless and enduring legacies of yours. Of a truth and undoubtedly they have made what God wants us to be, and we promise that they LIVE ON.

Best friend mi, companion mi, I miss u sooooo much, your thoughts, gists and laughs are unerasable memories (mo n gba dun e, kikikikikikmasakarabasaka, am alright, you know am a psychologist...those were our moments). I always thought that time is a big healer, but your transition has proved me wrong. With each passing day, I miss you even more. My only consolation as a Christian is that I have an in depth understanding that death has no power over you, because you ONLY moved unto the greatest of all glories.

My greatest joy is that someday and at the right time, we will all meet to celebrate our crowns of righteousness eternally . My Pastor, shield, shining light, guide, leader, role model and biggest fan,one thing is certain you are not forgotten,you remain and will continually reign supreme in our hearts. We cherish you greatly,we adore you passionately and we  love you eternally. Rest on dearly beloved.
Dear All: Baba Fadayomi fought a good fight of faith, he finished his course enviably........and You, WHAT ARE YOU FIGHTING FOR?"
