I looked forward to come back for more but I procrastinate it ... now I know I will miss you more than I have thought.... Good night Daddy Agba

Grandpa, you are like a candle to everyone one around you illuminating everyone around you not minding how it affects you. You were a great disciplinarian, father, uncle, husband, brother and friend to all. It pains my heart that you left without even remembering our plans, we still wanted to go to the farm together, the river and drive around but I know you are in the bosom of the Lord. I miss you so much, Death is what makes us all equal. Rest well grandpa, your memories will live in our hearts. I LOVE YOU

Death! Is Inevitable, Hummm... DADDY, I don't know why it's hard for me to believe that you are truly gone! But who are we to question God. Thou you may be gone but your memories lives on. I pray that you find peace wherever you are big daddy. We love you, but God loves you most. SUN REE O, BABA OMO TOOOTO....

Dear Daddy
I still cannot believe you have left us- we will always remember and love you. You have left a big void in our lives and life will never be the same again. You will always be in our thoughts, prayers and in our hearts. I wish we expressed how much we loved you when you were here with us. I wish I could turn back time. We will never forget you and you always remain our dear daddy.
Love from your children.. Adieu dad!!

You may have passed on, but your memories would always live on within us. Thank you for your sacrifices, your care and concern, your love and everything that you have done for me. Wherever you are, I know you are in a much better place. I will be forever grateful and thankful that you are my 'Big daddy'.

Grandpa Ogotun as we fondly called you whenever we spoke on phone. We thought we shall have the opportunity to visit you in Nigeria but God knows the best. We know you at the right hand of Jesus Christ. Continue to rest in the Lord's bosom. We'll love and miss you 4ever. From your adorable grandchildren in the United States.

When the mirror is broken you no longer see your image. On that dreadful day (Insert the date he died) that you departed this world to join the saints it has not been same again for me.
Daddy you were the mirror at which I looked at my life, the mirror at which I looked at myself and now that you are gone my life is so empty that I feel it in my soul. My solace is the fact that you live a righteous life. Every moments of your life is like a book on a path towards heavenly bliss..
Daddy when I close my eyes the image of you is all I see… The summary of our togetherness from cradle to your exit lingers on my mind it’s a memory that even death cannot erase…
Your departure has made me broken and transformed me into a man. Not by gender but by willingness to do what great men do knowing that death is the end of every mortal. The transformation that life is vain and everything in it is vanity.
This death won’t separate us as I would soon grow old and exit just like you did and we meet again soon to continue as father and son. Then my son also would pay tribute to me like I am doing this evening to your blessed memory.
Rest in the Lord true soldier of faith. Adieu my mirror.

I was sad to hear about your demise Baba.
Though you are dead, I thank God for the privilege to have met you. Baba was loved and admired by his family and everyone who was fortunate enough to know him. Even though you are no more with us on earth, your love and peaceful memories will continually be our guide.I will miss him and his legacy will continue to inspire. Sleep on Baba Alo till we meet to part no more. God rest your Soul!!!!

A person that departs on this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds - through us they live on.

I am saddened to hear of his passing. He was loved and respected by everyone who met him. I hope we can find peace in the wonderful life he has lived. May his gentle soul Rest In Peace and may the good lord give those he left behind, the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
