I was very sad when I came across the news of your passing. After you left us in South Africa and you moved to the US, I thought we will reunite again. Dipo, you were a great guy, jovial and friendly. May your soul be accepted by your maker and may God comforts your immediate and extended family you have left behind.

Dipo

Its times like this that we all must accept that life ia temporal. You are full of life, with vigour, vibrant and fun, loving and healthy. You certainly are blessed with the wits, humour, warmth and all that some of us lack. Yet we all never had it all.

I commend you to a life beyond, to a safer place, to eternal life. May the Lord grant you soul repose, forgive your transgressions, console your loved ones, and till we meet again, rest in perfect peace.

Sorry, couldn't do this until now!!!Kept replaying the last conversation we had early this year...

Thought I was dreaming when I heard you passed. So many fond memories of the period you were in South Africa with Sunday, Femi, Caroline, etc. You left too soon! Your passing was & still a big blow for me. May your gentle and kind soul continue to rest at the bossom of the Lord, Amen. May the Lord comfort your family, Amen.

I'm so sorry Wale!

Rest in peace Dipo. Sun re o

Never thought I would have to do this....
Oh! death you sure sting’ but you are not victorious; for to live is Christ and to die is gain
Still feel I might just wake up and discover I have been dreaming.
Rest In Peace, my soft spoken, kind hearted, loving brother in law,
You will always be missed till we meet again at Jesus feet.

I just heard that you passed away so sudden....Dipson as I always refer to you way back in ife... May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace...and may the Almighty give wale and the rest of the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss...Amen and Amen
Posted by Bola Muyis on March 10, 2021
Ahhh brother Dipo, I’m still not prepared to accept this loss, we all we’re hoping for a different outcome. So glad we spoke this November past, when you called me out of the blue for my birthday.

It’s been too much trauma this past few years, hard to bear losses, very disheartening. My heart goes out to all the Alabi’s especially Wale, Yemi, Biola, Lola and Labake please accept my deepest condolences.
Posted by Funsho Patrick-Ajufo on March 7, 2021
It’s still so painful. Still can’t believe it, it’s like if I don’t accept it, I will wake up from this horrible nightmare. God knows, o ye Olorun. I pray you continue to rest in peace, I pray the Holy Spirit Himself comforts the family and loved ones. Can’t ever forget you, the way you gave advice, your easy-going way, you saw something good in everything... ah, I pray you rest in peace. You are sorely missed.

Oladipo.
You left this world without goodbye,
But you know what they say,
God only takes the best,
I remembered growing up in Ile-Ife, you were a wonderful person and a beautiful soul and wanted the best for everyone around, you were so humble that life was easy been around you.
Everything happens for a reason,
The thought of never seeing you again brings tears to my eyes, and even more so, because all of this was such a surprise.
But we should never question what God has planned, sometimes its not meant for us to understand.
We are all here morning the loss of a beloved father, husband, brother and friend.
I will always cherish your honest, caring and loving spirit.
Good night Dipo.
Posted by Lola Famuyiwa on March 4, 2021
My dear Bro. Dipo,
We were praying for you, trusting and believing God for completely healing. I can’t pretend to understand but O ye Olorun. A o pade lese Jesu, ni bi to ako ni yara wa, a o ri rawa, a o yo morawa, Jesu ni yo se alaga wa. My deepest condolences to your loved ones.
Posted by Adeyinka Bolarinwa on March 3, 2021
Your sudden demise came to me as a shock and I still cant get over it, but who are we to question God, you are such a wonderful father in law, the moment and time shared with you still lingers in my memory, You gave me the best gift a man can ever asked for, and I remain indebted to you. I promise to love, to cherish and care for her. Thank you so much sir.
Sleep well

I didn't know Dipo very well when we were kids. He was my "senior" then so I knew him only as bro Dipo. Eventually, we became friends, professional colleagues, and for a short while, housemates when we both moved to the US. Dipo was a good friend, a great dad, and a gentleman's gentleman. He left his mark everywhere he went and on everyone he met. One of the things I remember about Dipo was whenever I sought his counsel on anything, he always had this amazing ability to cut through all the clutter and offer sound, honest, sage, and seemingly prescient advice. He will be missed.

May his soul rest in peace and I pray that God will grant the family he left behind the strength and courage to carry on.

Dear Dipo, words have failed me!!! Your sudden death came as a rude shock & got me devastated & thinking of what this life is all about........ However, u came, saw & conquered. May God grant u eternal rest & grant your family the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss. Good night dear
Posted by Abiola Bakare on March 1, 2021
My brother, gist partner, turned to be my father. A good father and brother with no boundary. 

Alabaro mi Oladipo, why did you have to leave me?
Oh! If LOVE alone could have saved you, you never would have died...
If FAITH alone could have saved you, you would not have died...I had that faith like a mustard seed.
But the GOD ALMIGHTY did the best for you.
I cannot fathom how it happened but I believe GOD knows how and why.

My supporter, you told me never to give up but death didn't permit you to see that which you have wished for me in everything. 
I love you so much. Thank you very much for everything. You will always be remembered as your birthday is shared with your small nephew...
You taught me how to stay calm in temperest situations...you will say Biola "ma worry things will be alright"

Well, I guess you have gone to rest because you worked very hard during your lifetime.

I thank God HE made you my brother. You can never be forgotten, your memories can never fade away. Will forever miss you. I love u very much.
Posted by Titilola Jejeniwa on February 28, 2021
Hummm, Egbon mi, Oladipo Olumuyiwa Omo Alabi, the news of your demise was a rude shock for me; because I never saw it coming. We all raised our voices in prayer, our faith was strong and were optimistic for your recovery but God’s ways are not our ways. What a painful separation.
James 1:12 says blessed is the man who perseveres under trail because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. Oladipo, you have left this sinful world to rest in Heaven.
When we spoke earlier in the year, I promised to come spend quality time with you by my next visit to the states, hummm; where will I see you now?
Flood of memories overwhelmed me, I remember how you use to scold me when teaching me mathematics, your convocation was a great joy to the whole family. I remembered during my waiting years, I visited you & you insisted I must see your Pastor for prayers. You stood by me & with me as a brother should, Bro Dipo, you will forever live on in my heart.
Adipson, my darling, hard working & peace loving brother; who never sees impossibilities in any situation. “Ko si problem, ko si problem” was one of his slogans.
Your love & sacrifice for your family can’t be comprehend.
Oladipo, egbon mi oninure, indeed you have fought the good fight, you have finished your race on earth, you have kept the faith. I know our stay on earth is transient; whether we live long or not, death is sure.
Sun re o, Omo Alabi.

Words seems so feeble in moments like these. Life is so precious & death such a thief. I am deeply pained as words are of no help expressing the sorrow l feel at this moment. Dipo was just like a candle full of light & comradeship. My sincere condolences to the whole family.
Posted by Fola Adebowale on February 27, 2021
May God rest your soul Dipo, and comfort your family.Very sad indeed
Posted by IDOWU SOMUYIWA on February 27, 2021
Hmmmm! I guess I still have to do this, I prayed and wished it will never get to this, I’m lost for words. Oladipo!!!! What a great loss, losing two brothers in less than a year. I thank God for letting me be part of your life, I pray the Lord grant you a peaceful rest and strengthen your family and loved ones.
I am still in shock and still can’t believe you are gone, I prayed and raised an altar for you before God but He knows best.
Sleep well my dear brother you and gone but not forgotten, May the Lord comfort your beautiful wife, children and siblings.
Sun re ooo ..
Posted by Sade Cole on February 27, 2021
This is a rude shock, Dipo. Still lost for words. You were full of life and laughter. Questions loom, but we hold our peace and pray that all your desires for your family here be perfected. May they all be strengthened and comforted in the Holy Spirit. May your kind soul rest peacefully. (For the Ademosuns)

MY TRIBUTE
Oh, dear brother! Your death is still like a dream; still feels like a joke every time I look at your picture

We spoke immediately after you arrived at the hospital; you video called me because you knew I was worried and I saw you; we spoke briefly and You said "Yemi ma worry I will be back in 2 days” and I replied saying "amen!!

I never knew God had other plans; never knew he wanted you to come to him and rest in his bosom. I never knew that was our last conversation on earth even though I knew you had a lot to talk about. Omase o!! Egbon mi Egbon mi!!! Kilode!!!

You were an intelligent hardworking calm kind selfless and God-fearing man. Ah!! O death!! Why!! We prayed and fasted and I had faith in God that you were coming back home to awon Temi. Ah! Omase!!!

My only consolation is that you are resting; no more pain, no sorrow and you are away from this stressful and sinful world

Egbon mi, Oladipo Olumuyiwa rest on till we meet to part no more. Lots of love ❤️

Your dear sister
Olayemi

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.

Adieu Dipo, you lived a good life, you brought smiles to many, may Jehovah protect all your loved ones you left behind. Sleep on brother, rest well in the bosom of your maker.

Here is a note to a friend who I always cherish. Dipo, you were a Gem. A golden fish. Your light was very bright but the Cold hand of death took you away from us,even without notice.
Continue to shine in the bossom of the Lord , till we meet to part no more.Sun re o.

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.
Posted by Doxzy Adeyemo on February 24, 2021
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 thoughts of you 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.
Posted by Ronke Famuyiwa on February 24, 2021
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.
Posted by Toyin Balogun on February 24, 2021
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!!!!
Posted by Bolu Komolafe on February 24, 2021

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.

Such a sad day to hear of your departure! May your gentle soul rest in with the Lord (Amen). Seyi
Posted by Joke Thompson on February 24, 2021
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
Posted by Busola Akerele on February 23, 2021
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!

Posted by T Fad on February 23, 2021
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

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.

I am still in shock Dipo!!!
I spoke with you shortly after you lost your brother and you said to stay in touch, I sent a birthday greeting on your birthday and said I will call you soon but did not get a response from you. I had no idea.
May the almighty God comfort your family and may your kind and gentle soul rest in peace.

This surely hurts....
Shared by Bomi Adeboya (Nee Oyenuga... on February 26, 2021
 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.
