Jay, the thought of never seeing you again brings tears to my eyes. Bro, as we normally address ourselves,you gone too soon, but can i really question God? Oye olorun. There are things that doesn't add up @ all but it is well.
It's been a great privilege to have known you all these yrs. We were family and not just friends.  Can't still believe you are gone. Will miss your true friendship, words of wisdom, encouragement and most importantly our " boys hang out time". Your humility, generosity and sense of humour is out of this world and these are memories that will remain intact in my heart till we meet at the bossom of Jesus. I know you are in a good place cus you were a staunch God chaser. It is a celebration of life actually . Rest on " bro". Rest on in peace. Rest on in the Lord. Love you loads Bro.

Uncle Jerry, death is inevitable, it is a journey that everyone must take. Often times we wish death wasn’t a part of life, we wish we would just stay alive on earth with our near and dear ones not dying. But unfortunately, we cannot. Our prayer is that we fulfill our days on earth and grow old before our time is up. I pray that your soul will continue rest in perfect peace (Amen)

I will miss you my uncle J or as I usually call him 'Dad' or 'Big daddy in Abuja', apart from my biological father, you were the 1st runner up as a dad in my heart, my dad, uncle, friend and as they would say my 'Data supplier' and I know that this is only your 1 year rememberance but that vacuum in my heart is still not filled, when I lost my first father and you were the one I officially made my father but then when you left I was devastated, I was planning to chat with you like we always do but then I heard the bad news, I was so disappointed because when I last talked to
your Doc he said you were recovering and will soon be on your feet but then the unexpected happened. I miss you a lot RIP dad

“Death is never the end, but a “‘To Be Continued’….” - Renees Chae.

It is a year today that you left this wicked World, you remain in the hearts of those who truly love you - you cannot be forgotten.

Jay, you deserve to still be here but the consolation is that, you are in the place of truth. Yes, the dreams confirm it. 

The years did not take away the good memories - that is all l hold and nothing else.

Continue to rest on husband, in the bosom of your God until the resurrection morning.

I had known Jerry (as I used to fondly call him) since 2005 when he was living in the UK. We used to speak of world affairs and share numerous jokes together even when he had migrated back to Nigeria. I will truly miss a dear friend that I had know of for so long. May god grant him a place in haven and his soul rest in peace. Take care my brother you will sorely missed. Amen

It has been difficult to come to terms with this, my dear brother full of life. I remember when I met you for the first time after your wedding in Italy to my beautiful sister Yemi. You visited me in Ikeja with a cousin and it was fun, fun, fun. Never a dull moment with you. Even after I moved to the US, we would talk for hours.
I bless God for your life and it is my prayer that the Lord Almighty in His infinite mercy grant you everlasting rest. Adieu

Jerry, your passing has been too difficult for me to accept, but only just realised it is real. You are too alive to die, so sleep on dear cousin bro, till we meet again.

Brother J, I still can't get to grips with the fact that you are no longer here with us....always ready to take a call and discuss positively and progressively a way forward.
Our meeting in Dubai was to be the last time I set eyes on you but only God knows why he's called you home...
You will be sorely missed but Rest in the bosom of our Lord till we meet again.

A TRIBUTE TO MR. JERRY EFEDEDE WESLEY

If I say this death no pain me, na lie I dey lie. Whaaat? Just like that?  You know, there are things you just don't imagine. But it happened. It was a bitter pill for us to swallow.

The news of your death was a big shock to my husband and I because we talked about you fews days before your death, not knowing that you were fighting for your life. You had so many Big Big dreams, you really hustled to get to where you stopped. But God knows it all, for He alone knows our end from our beginning. He brought us into this world  for a purpose. So, we cannot question Him when He decided to call you back home.

Adieu Bros, till we meet at the bosom of the Lord, to part no more.

ONOJA FAVOUR OBIAGELI

Jerry's death came to me as a rude shock. Met Jerry in Abuja in 2013 and he became not only a business partner but a brother. We had a plan to do a lot things together but alas that is not to be again but God knows the best. Jerry rest in peace till we meet to part no more. "O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory? But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

REMINISCING .........
Jay, we made a covenant, a marriage covenant with God, the author of our union who was our main witness and before the human witnesses present. We took an oath for better, for worst till death do us part, and you promised to love me making our love the envy of others. 

Our Alpha, who knew our beginning, our in-between, and our end - kept us together and legally married till death us did part, despite it all - despite the INVASION

Yes!
We had a beautiful and humble beginning with so much sacrifice, we built our union on true love and not materialism; loving each other and giving our all was what we knew. Though we had very little, we built our marriage and home on our faith and hope in God. As we sojourned, we continued to build our marriage and our love anchored on Christ the Chief cornerstone. When l became downcast and cried due to our challenges, you would say, “sweetheart, we are married for love and children are added value”, you would further say “Our love is forever notwithstanding” I gave my heart, my whole and my all to us, hence some friends called us ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and some referred to me as the biblical Ruth.

However..............................

I remember all the good memories of us - Grace and Jerry as best friends. We experienced exciting, painful and tough times together enveloped in love.

l vividly remember our conversations and prayers about us happily growing old together because we were bosom friends always happy together.

I remember the jokes, tickles, the rough play as young lovers, our Sunday dances, our long walk holding hands and your cooking prowess, especially your exceptional cooking of fish, beef and chicken stew together in the same pot.

I remember your ‘bribe phrase’ to make me laugh when you get me upset which is the same as your flattery when you found me impressively and beautifully dressed up - “Ileyemi aya Jerry” (Ileyemi Jerry’s wife)

We had dreams, aspirations and plans, shockingly, life happened to us. All our plans, our dreams, the promises all gone with the wind.......

What can l say Jay!!
What can l say Edirin!!!
God sees and knows all.

Jay, Sleep well. Samuel, Rest well in the bosom of Him who you always proudly declared loves you so much. 

We shall meet again on the resurrection morning.

Adieu!!!

SNAPSHOT OF JERRY’S LIFE STORY.

Jerry was born in Lagos, Nigeria as Samuel Edirin Efedede. He later took on the name Jerry after trying some other yuppie names. He also decided to take on his father’s first name - Wesley as according to him he did not know his grandfather so why bear the name of a person he never met. 

He travelled to Italy at the age of 23yrs, he relocated back to Nigeria at a point but soon returned back to Italy where he lived until he met and got married to his wife Grace who lives in the UK

Following their marriage ceremony in Bergamo, Italy, Jerry moved to London, United Kingdom to join his wife Grace and the both of them later moved to live in MIlton Keynes. Due to work / business commitments Jerry found himself living in Abuja, Nigeria.

Jerry passed on  01/02/2021 as a result complications o C-19 in Abuja and buried according to C-19 protocol.
