Adeyemi was a focused man who was on a journey of fulfilling his purpose before he answered the call beyond. He was a loving husband to Tokunbo and a caring father to Sarah and Mary. He was a faithful brother and a loyal friend. He will always be fondly remembered with love.

"i want to choose life and meaning over death and tragedy,so i will focus on finding joy in the mundane and profound, joy in the small things that makes my children smile,joy in the moments of friendship that might otherwise pass unnoticed,joy in the ability to appreciate the gift of life in a way i never did before.Today my family mourn that you were taken from us so suddenly and so young,it has been 104 weeks, grappling moment to moment and day to day with often overwhelming void that your death has left in our lives.
Adeyemi we miss you,we love you more than words could say,even in death you continue to inspire me,encourage me, the hardest thing is not talking to someone you use to talk to everyday.
Rest easy my love"

"Ha........The news hit me like a thunderbolt as l was still mourning my mum's death.Immediately the shock of your's assumed a far greater is beyond my comprehension.Two days before your death,you were consoling me with so much passion out of sincere concern.You were such a gentle and God fearing soul.Indeed the fate and destiny of man is in God's hand.As the heavenly hosts take you home,may the Alpha and Omega build a hedge of fire around your wife and children.............Rest   In   Peace!!!"

"In the arms of sweet deliverer you laid your heavy burden down and with our Lord above.When at last your travelling days were done,you started your eternal rest somewhere beyond,in the bosom of Christ.How come a perfect tree doesn't stay long in the forest?Ironically,Yemi......(Alleno)as l used to call u, you were consoling my wife of her mother's
demise,on 12/01/2014 with your usual Biblical allusion.A rare breed of exemplary being of finest humane qualities gone too soon.Joyfully,you surrendered your existence to our Lord Jesus in the course of the rough and coarse journey of your life.Our friendship remains evergreen in my memory because of indelible prints you left-it's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.May your soul rest in peace."

"Hey brother!
Yemi u were not just a friend to me, we were even more than brothers, I just don't know the word for it. We had laughed together, dined together, starved together and even breath back to each other. We lived together like two unbreakable brothers, wherever I was u were never 5feets away. We studied together, failed together and then succeeded together. Yemi u know its a lot to tell, but I will just keep the rest in my memory. The pain of your demise hurts so bad, very bad I cant stop thinking about it every second after I heard the news. Another thing is that I realy wanna be there to pay you my last respect but I am financially incapable. Yemi I know where you are; you can see everything even inside my heart. I realy wanted to come, now it hurts even more that I could not make it to your funeral. Pls forgive me.
Yemi if nothing I know I owe this to u, I will always keep ur family in my prayers, and I will continue to check on them to make sure they doing good. Rest in peace homie. Till we meet to part no more."

The last time we spoke over the phone some few years ago, we both agreed on doing everything to make the future better for our children.

"This is unbelievable, an irreplaceable lose.
Bros, if I could reach up & hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand.
I remember the good old days when you lived @ Sanda Street, Molete, Ibadan. The good times I spent with you & bro Femi.
Also, I remember when we attended Jah Jehovah Jireh Church No 1 with Aunty Iyabo Olowu, aunty Yemisi Daodu, Mummy & bro Femi.
I remember you & FemT then @ Ibadan Grammar School when u used to dance thriller& co.
I remember you then @ UI, Mellanby Hall with Laolu.
Death, why did you take him away soon?
Hmmmmm! It is foolish & wrong to mourn the man who died. Rather we should thank God that such man lived. (George S. Patton Jnr.)
Yemie, sleep softly, rest in peace.
This is not an ending, but this is actually the beginning of your new life. This is not death but your birth into eternity.
You will always be in my thoughts & heart & will always long for the time that we would meet again.
Goodbye brother."

"If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We would pray to God with all our hearts
For a yesterday and you.
A thousand words can’t bring you back,
We know, because we tried;
And neither will a million tears,
We know, because we cried.
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too which we will forever hold on to.
We want you here with us but God love you more.
You'll forever be remembered....."

"Death cannot divide
Thou art but on the other side with Christ
Thou art with Christ and Christ with me
And so together, still are we.
Through your reflection, your memories which I will forever cling unto I will carry on the torch....we were inseparable in life, death will not have victory over us......I will hold on to that which you taught me and I will let our children know.....I will never say goodbye"

"My Luv..
have only just lost you the pain is hard to bear
Do I have to go through life knowing you're not there
please some one explain to me why you had to go
are there any reasons I really need to know
I sit here and remember all the lovely times we shared
the talks the laughter of every one you cared
I am told the pain will ease in time
and I will think of you without a tear
but that will be impossible as I need to have you here
You are my very world and my ever guiding star
Just kiss me softly on the cheek and tell me where you are"

"Rest in the bosom of the Lord dear one - Yemi Allen! Death snatched your beautiful spirit and your pleasant soul away...O death where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory? So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 15:55 -57). We love you dearly and miss you greatly."
