You left us too soon. Today is your birthday and you departed this sinful world three years and eight months ago but it still felt like it was yesterday. Through you my attention was drawn to Isaiah 40:31 which used to be your favorite scripture and I am holding onto that scripture up till today. Each time that I read that scripture, I always remember you. You will be missed for ever.

So so sad, i knew Bayo and his little brother briefly when we were all students in Ife, we also shared same home town, Ilesa. i saw him last in my graduation year (1990), such a great guy, never a dull moment around him then. Good to read from here that he went on to do real well. God will be with the family he left behind. Adieu, little bro.
