The void left by the good ones when they leave is very wide. So much that only the memories of good times shared can keep one going.
Dipo thank you for being my friend.

This was so very painful to hear, especially very shortly after your older brother’s passing. All I keep remembering is your face when I saw you last at a 50th birthday celebration.
I can’t imagine the pain that the Alabi family is currently experiencing, and my prayer is that the Holy Spirit himself will comfort the entire Alabi family as only he can, and give them the fortitude to bear this indescribable loss so shortly after another.

GOd be with you till we meet again....
Oladipo, i had hoped i wont have to write this goodbye note, hoping to hear that its was a hoax...alas our love for you couldn't bring you back.
We will console ourselves that you are gone to a better place. Though we might not see you again but your though will forever leave a feeling of joy in our hearts.
Gerry, we will keep with us the memories of the good times we shared and God be with you till we meet again.

Brother Dipo, I can’t believe you are gone. I don’t understand. I don’t understand. I am broken down with grief. You are loved, missed and cherished.

What a day!!! How can it be? The day of your departure from this world. What a gentle, kind and lovely soul you were!! Oh how much we are going to miss you!!
Rest In Peace my brother, rest in His perfect peace!!! You have left the world of pain and sin, with trust and faith in His mercy and grace, now you’re in the arms of your Heavenly Father never to know pain and suffering.
Our only comfort is the Word of God that says we should not sorrow for those that are asleep, for as Jesus died and rose again even so those which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him at His coming. May God of all comfort, comfort your lovely wife and beautiful children in a way only Him can do!!!
Rest In Peace my brother, rest in His perfect peace!!!!

When we are in need of comfort
We walk down memory lane,
There we see you smiling
We talk with you again,
And as we wander slowly back
We seem to hear you say
Don't grieve. don't cry, my family,
We'll meet again some day.

Though, I am still emotionally shattered but I can’t help thinking back to that memory of your visit with Wale to my place in Annapolis years ago. Your smile, your advice, humbleness and encouragement even the photograph we took together seems a temporary elixir for consolation....You’re loved my brother and you will always be remembered.

He has gone to rest in the Lord. May God comfort the ones you left and take care of them.

Such a sad day to hear of your departure! May your gentle soul rest in with the Lord (Amen). Seyi

This hurts soo bad! Although I never met you but had hopes and looked forward to meeting you.. I find solace in the fact that I was privileged to have spoken with you over the phone last October. Your soft words still lingers in my mind as I took everything you said to heart.
You fought a good fight but God needed an extra angel and who are we to question Him.
Oh death!!! Where is thy sting? 
RIP Bro Dipo

Oladipupo, I'd long to meet you but nothing hinted that it would never be. Like the candle in the wind, the bright light was deprived of its eye blinding glow. Your demise sends a rude shock I never felt before, as if I knew you all my life. For I heard that you had a pleasant soul, that you loved your children, that you hardly get angry and that you lived purposely to let others live.

As for me, my brother, I believe you are reading this, I will forever question God over your demise. It makes no sense to me. Being alive is not to be cherished anymore for where you are now, perhaps, is better than this temporary hell.
Ile aiye ati ohun asan inu re. I hate to see young fathers and mothers die. Oh, poor children; those who have suddenly become fatherless. A huge mirror shattered; complicating the image they see.
We shall find peace in you, Diipo. So sorry!
O daaro o. Omije oju u wa yio se idajo lori okuku aiye.

Can't say goodbye but so long. Thanks to have met you on this journey. Till we meet again brother

So disheartened hearing the news of your sudden demise. The last time i saw you in Naija, you welcomed me with a smile. You will forever be missed, sir. Your memory will continue to linger. God knows best.
Rest on Sir.
Your Brother. Alabi kehinde.

I found it so hard to believe you are gone Dipo,having a flashback of over 3 decades that i have known you,you were a great guy to reckon with, may the good Lord console and comfort your family, rest in peace bruv

There comes a solemn time for every man, the inevitable moment, to admit our frailty and mortality and bow before the awesomeness of our God, who alone has power over life and death.
A gentleman to the core was Dipo, an Aquinarian of Integrity. We met as little boys back in 1979 at Aquinas College, Akure. Gentle as a dove, considerate of others, blessed with a good nature, we shall indeed miss you, and we pray that God will comfort your family and grant you rest eternally, sleep well my brother. Adieu Brother.

Life is like a mist...it appears for just a day and disappears tomorrow.
All that we are can quickly fade away
Replaced with tears and sorrow.....

https://www.jw.org/en/library/magazines/watchtower-no3-2019-sep-oct/sad-reality-of-death/


My thoughts and that of my entire family are with the Alabi's in this most difficult time..... 
We pray that may you all be comforted by the words found in God's word the Bible...
Isaiah 25: 8
"He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it."
John 5 28&29
"Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment
"
May Jehovah God the God of Comfort ,Comfort us all in this during this time...... Amen...

Bros Dipson words failed me and it's hard to say goodbye. I prayed for you to recover but it seems God loves you more than we do. This is so painful, all I have are good memories of you that I will cherish and keep in my heart forever. This one is hard to bear but I pray God keep you wife, kids and aburos that you left behind, I know you're in a better place, rest on in the bossom of your maker till we meet to part no more. Good night bros Dipson

Really, death is inevitable . If not, you would have been prevented from not leaving us; God is unquestionable!
You were an awesome uncle. Uncle Dipo was caring,loving, meek, easy going, and full of smile in his days; even in his trying times. Oh how much I'll miss you my dear uncle.
May your soul rests in the bosom of God. Amen!

Never would have felt ready to say good-bye to a secondary school mate as special as Dipo, but this timing feels especially tough. Wishing your family comfort and strength for the days and weeks ahead. Praying for all of you. RIP 
Posted by Ola Akeju on February 23, 2021
I am short of words right now, I can't believe that we have lost you. Dipson you were very gentle at heart, it’s so sad you have gone so soon but God knows best. You will remain in our hearts forever. I pray for your loved ones that you left behind; I commit them into the hands of the almighty God. God knows their present situation; I pray that he shall do what no man can do. So shall it be in Jesus’ name. Amen. Rest in peace Dipson Alabi.

Life in this world can be hard,life in this world can bring tears and pain.
The news of Dipo's death struck me like a dagger in the heart.
I pray that Jehovah gives us the strength and courage we need to cope with this grief.
I have hope towards God that there's going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous (John.24:15).
I pray and hope to see you again in paradise.(Rev.21:3&4).
Wale,Yemi,Biola and Lola,we love you.
The Akinyemi's are really grieved.The love our parents shared brought us together and it will remain forevermore.
We are with you in sympathy and pray for Jehovah's Holy spirit to comfort and console the entire family.Very soon we will be able to say death,where is your victory,death where is your sting.(1Cor.15:55).

Dipo, my dear brother from another parent and my friend, you will forever be loved and missed and remember. I am going to miss your new year calls brother. When you call, you will say “ Dupe if I don’t call you, you won’t check on me, moti da sie lara “, we would laugh over it and started gisting and catched up, coupled with your words of encouragements. Dipo, I will miss you so much. I still remember our graduation in 1990 when you and bode visited my house to celebrate with me despite how busy the day was, and we took pictures together, both of you in white outfits (RIP). I still texted you February 11th 2021, after I have called your number on several occasions with no response from your end and I prayed that I will testify to God’ s goodness in your life when you come out not knowing that God has a better plans for you brother. Who are we to question Him?. I was so devastated when I heard about your moving on to glory, brother, I know you are in a better place now. Continue to rest in peace. Goodnight Dipo.

Dearest uncle Dipo... I am so shattered because I am not only an in-law but a friend. I met you the day you met my sister many years ago in London. You were always warm and kind to me and it always amazes me how you never got angry or raise your voice all the time I knew you. You always kept your cool no matter how alarming things were. When you called me to wish me a happy new year little did I know it would be the last time. So many fond memories. You are so kind and a cool Dad and uncle. you were the first father figure in my sons Life and I remember how you kept pacing up and down at the airport with josh so I could complete immigration on my return to Nigeria 5 years ago. Too many fond memories which I will hold dear in my heart forever. You were too good for this world keep watching over your family we all miss you so much but God knows best. Rest on in Jesus till when we all meet to part to more.
Your loving sis-in-law

Dear brother Dipo, your passing is a rude shock to me and my family. Even though I had not seen you in a long time, I chatted with you over the phone last year and you were as warm as ever. I remember your smile and good composure. You were a great friend and brother to my brothers. Bro Biodun and Bayo will miss you so much. My mum shed tears when bro Biodun broke the sad news to her. We all prayed so hard for your recovery but who are we to question God. He is an all knowing God. You sure left a big hole in the hearts of many. There are only good talks about you. I can only pray that God will uphold your siblings and the family that you left behind. I pray that God will wrap His soothing arms around them and wipe their tears away. May God take care of your wife and lovely children. Rest in perfect peace dear brother

My relationship with the Alabi's dates way back 1970, when my dad left University of Ibadan for University of Ife, their house, the popular "Olayiwola Motors" was our first place of abode. Baba Bode as my dad popularly called their dad, was a great friend to my dad, Mr. Samson Idonije and they where friends till they both departed. Dipo's dad and mum where a pillar of assistance to my father. He will always tell me every encounter he has with them and this always left a strong bond in my heart for their offspring. They are exceptional parents with exceptional kids with good heart. This preamble says it all. Dipo and Bode where like twins and my brothers. Some people don't even know who is older amongst them. They where popular and loved by all. Let me narrate a little story here to express my loss. " I had not seen Dipo for over ten year and got in touch with a sister friend at the Corporate Affairs Commission, Abuja, who asked if am aware Dipo is getting married the next day? I said where is the venue? all she could offer is, lokoja, tomorrow and the bride is the daughter of AIG Ige, I called my wife and told her am on my way to Dipo's wedding, she said no problem, I understand as you have always said so much about him and his brother, God will see you to a fro". I got the venue and attended the wedding. Dipo and the entire family were so shocked at seeing. And mummy said 'you this children will track yourselves no matter what'. Dipo made sure he visited me and my family in Abuja before travelling back to the United States. I lost a great brother and friend in Dipo. Our shortest converse is an hour on phone. He promised he will be back soon and we have been planning his visit home for a while now, but it is so sad our next meeting will be outside this earth.
Dipo's demise is a great blow.  May his kind soul rest in perfect peace.

I sat here in my room one evening, wondering why I had not heard from you. The next call I had was from Bola in Winnipeg, Canada, informing me you had been in hospital and we prayed fervently that you'll come out alive. Now you are gone so soon and forever 'Dipo. What can we do? Any man who lives "must" surely die and on this note, we shall meet on the other side. Rest in perfect peace my brother and no doubt you are sorely missed.
Posted by Adetoun Olanipekun on February 23, 2021
Dipo....hmmmm when you sent me a happy new year message in January, little did I know you were saying goodbye. The next thing I heard was that you were in the hospital. We prayed, we hoped, we trusted. But it seems God needed you up there to become one of HIS angels. The pain of your passing will not go away suddenly. It will linger for a very long time. But I know that you’re in a better place,free from all pains. Rest on dearest Dipo

Egbon mi, the last thing I expected to hear was about u passing. It’s a rude shock to me. Ur death hit me hard. Can’t get ur voice off my head. Spoke with u few weeks ago and all u advised me to do was to pls take the Covid vaccine. Never knew that was the last time I would hear ur voice brother Dipo. But the lord God understands all. Sun re egbon mi Oladipupo Alabi. We love u but God loves u more. I will forever miss u brother Dipo
Posted by Tade Ojo on February 23, 2021
Wale's father and mother brought me up. I was raised by the Alabi's throughout my formative years. Uncle Layi' and Mummy's sound advice and encouragement was a guiding light. Bros Bode and Dipo were always there for me and I learnt so much from their experience. To hear that my family suffered such a blow within this short period of time is numbing. Hard to comprehend but it is what it is. May God provide the family with wisdom and strength to get through these trying times. Amen!
Posted by Wale Alabi on February 23, 2021
This one completely shattered me!
My big brother - Oladipo Olumuyiwa ALABI, my "adipson" I still can't come to terms with this mehn.....You were a source of inspiration to me, my true best friend, my rock, the words we share keep me going, the only one who speaks true to me when i need true, I will miss that happy infectious smile of yours, we shared such a special bond that most brothers only dream about, we did it ALL together, we shared it ALL together. Suddenly, you are gone and left this big empty hole in my heart that nobody can fill. You assured me in your last text at the hospital that you will be fine and we prayed and prayed and prayed, but clearly God said - not this time!

Your life was a blessing, the memories of which I will treasure forever (and we had quite a few), I am sure you know you were loved beyond measure. You were a true definition of a brother - you were always there for me, you picked me up when i fall, physically you fought for me when i couldn't, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh o ga o.

No worries brother mi, I got this. I will hold it down here. Say hi to Dad/Mum/Buddy, and keep watch until we meet again. 

Your little brother

 Dipo. I'm still coming to terms that this news of your passing is not a bad dream or a joke in very bad taste.
You see, The Alabi's were my neighbours for a very long time. Stories of my childhood can never be complete without Bode and Dipo, and of course the rest of the Alabi family...Wale, Yemi and Biola. Baba Bode was our Landlord. We lived in the flat downstairs at 66 Ibadan Road and they lived upstairs. Bode and Dipo were my brothers. We car-pooled to school together, did homework together,  played football and other Tom-boyish games with them. We also baked, played Ten-ten and some other sissy games together. When I remember the Alabi's, I travel back in time to a place called "Happy". 
Dipo, my little brother from Arigidi-Akoko was gentle and kind, I never saw him angry. We lost touch for several years, but got back in touch with him a few years back. Bode's passing less than a year ago, was a painful exit, this however is numbing. I still spoke to Dipo last year to commiserate with him when Bode passed, he was his usual charming self, asking after my mother and my elder sister Kemi. Oladipo, my brother, my friend, you have been called home too soon. Rest well in the bosom of your maker till resurrection morning.

*Tribute to Adipson: My brother and friend*. 
I never knew this could ever happen.  Me writing a tribute to you on your death? I never imagine it. It is still unbelievable.  I still don't know how to come to terms that it is a reality that you have left us to rest in eternity. Even though I was aware of your illness, never in the world could I have thought that it could lead to death. You were just to soft, too gentle,  easy going and too humble to have just gone this way. Where do I start from? Is it our ile ife days or  London days until you left for America. This shock is too much for me to bear. I will miss a confidant and a reliable friend and brother.  We are all still in trance finding it difficult to accept this tragic reality. This is one death too many. An extremely painful and untimely death.  The next stage of your life should have been for you to sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour. And unfortunately,  the wicked cold hands of death snatched you from us.  The Lord will grant you eternal rest in His bossom in Jesus name. May God grant your loving wife,  the children,  my brother Wale and the entire family,  we your friends and brothers the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss in Jesus name. Amen.  Sun re o Adipson.
