"Dear Jimi,

It was with shock i learnt two days ago that you had passed away. It hurt more than anyone could imagine. Why? Because i never got the opportunity to say Thank You.

Many years ago, we had all gone to a pool party and as we were all having fun, some of us in the pool, some lounging and others watching the little ones at the kids pool; my little son decided he wanted to jump into the pool. I saw him from a little way off and made not to run after him as I knew it would have gotten him more excited and he would have run faster.He was watching me, inching closer to the deep end. I knew I had to get to him in seconds or else. But he took off suddenly and jumped right in. Everyone froze.

I knew not to jump in right after him, like magic he came up laughing like he won the lottery,how come? My precious darling Jimi that's how come. Jimi was already in the pool somewhere close to the middle because there was no one at the deep end at the time. He got to him, held his little legs and brought him up. It was magical, he was in an upright position with Jimi holding on to his legs  and my son laughing.

Jimi what will i have done, if you hadn't been there, been able to swim under water at that speed .To be honest it happened so fast no one really saw Jimi until he came up with  Temi- my son. I have told a lot of people the story how this Angel rescued my son. Jimi you've been an angel for a long time people just didn't know it.

Jimi I will forever be grateful to you.

Continue to sleep in the bosom of the Lord."

"Dear Jimi, I still remember this dreadful day two years ago. We had just finished celebrating the life of our friend Tinu Ademuwagun. Bayo Fapohunda and I had discussed your condition praying for the best for you. As I was about to lie down and sleep that same day, I got the phone call that you had gone to sleep. Never will I forget. As sad as I felt, I can not begin to imagine how your family must have been feeling. Jimi, our ever gentle, smiling Jimi, I know for sure you are in Good Hands. I also know that God has been good to those you left behind. I had the pleasure of meeting Yinka, Oluseyi and Olujimi jnr. How proud you must be of them all. Yinka is so lovely, so positive, so stronger. Oluseyi is ever so beautiful and articulate . As for Olujimi jnr? A real replica of you. I know you are watching over them with Jesus. They are a real joy. As your long-time friend, I promise to always stay in touch with them and assist them in whatever way I can, small or big. Till we meet again my friend, continue sleeping peacefully. Amen"

"One year ago, as I was just about to go to bed, a Facebook update from an old secondary school classmate caught my eye. He'd posted a picture of another classmate, sharing the sad news of his passing last night. I was frozen as I read it. FLASH is gone??!!

See.....when I started my new healthy lifestyle changes in June of 2014, Jimi was one of my biggest silent cheerleaders in the background. Right from secondary school, he was quite the physical specimen of fitness. Muscular and well cut. When he caught wind of my attempts to cultivate a healthier lifestyle via my social media updates, he reached out, and constantly and happily shared tips on exercising and diet to facilitate weight loss. We exchanged a few recipes as well. It was great, as we'd lost touch over the years. And then this happened ...

Jimi Falase...rest well with the Lord. I pray that he comforts your family, and grants them the wherewithal to bear your loss. Rest in perfect peace, my brother. My heart is still heavy .... God bless you and yours eternally."

"Jimi, forever missed, forever in my thoughts. What has kept me going today especially is knowing that God does not call for His children until they have completed His work on this earth. I believe you have done your work and you are now resting in His arms. It is well for I know in taking you back, God has left your family and friends the strength and faith needed to keep on going till He calls us. Jimi, though you are in a much better place, you will never be forgotten. Continue to rest well my dear friend."

"Ah Jim Jam.....
So 365 days have come and gone and we have cause today to once more reflect on your herculean struggle to this day last year.

You went out like a king, our hero, with a fortitude that will never be forgotten.  And as you left , you said "Everything is sorted." We take comfort that you are well and truly "Sorted", living out a divine existence in the Glory of the Lord. What it must be like from day to day, rubbing shoulders with the great of the faith, those who like you,have run the most marvelous race and are resting now in a joyous and eternal peace.

You will be forever young in my heart. The sound of your chuckle will never fade. Your ever pragmatic counsel will always reflect in my judgement as I will always ask, "What would Jimi do?".

You live on in our minds , Jimi and we will continue to run your race here as we guide your wife and children to become people that will reflect the greatness of  their husband and dad.

Sleep well my brother. Forever young in my heart...forever present."

"Olujimi Olaniyi,

We said goodbye one year ago. This time it was goodbye and not au revoir ... at least not for this side of eternity.

So much has happened in the past year. Yinka, Luseyi and Luropo have found a new rhythm and purpose that builds on the strong foundation you laid.

Mummy and daddy have navigated the valley of the shadow and reflect a peace that only God can give.

We, your siblings, feel your presence in a new way. I thought the five will become four. But no, the five remain five. You are indelibly etched into every day, of every month.

We miss you still. Thankfully, the pain, the grief is no longer the sole occupant of front seat. Jesus heals.  Instead I think of you and smile. Your many nicknames flash by. Olujimi Olaniyi and Jimi Boy were mine. I look at your pictures and thank God for  the days we shared. Thank you Jimi in so many ways.

I sometimes wonder, what are you doing right now, right this instant? Do you reach for us as we reach for you? I suspect that you have embraced this new place and are giving it your best shot ... as we are. The tears we shed are framed with the hope of this place that you have made so tangible and so close.

Thanking God for His faithfulness and grace. Olujimi Olaniyi you remain forever young in that special place in our hearts. Prosper and grow in God's Kingdom.

We love you for always.
Kofi, Abiola and your nephews."
