"Osayande my dearest brother , remembering you today like I did on your birthday. I had left a tribute on that day but surprisingly it did not register. You would have been 49 on that day, but God knows best. I miss you each day thoughts of you can never leave my heart. What else can I say but to continue to take solace that you are resting well in Heaven with no more pains and worries of life. RIP bro till we meet to part no more ."

"The complexity of life is really embedded in the simplicity of comprehending and living it - the fact that everyone continues to live it out daily in different phases and modifications within the same script.

We all live and die everyday....... albeit temporarily, but still die nevertheless; In sleep, we die in one location and resume life in another and vice versa till we finally take up permanent residence in a preferred location; yet we still live;

Osayande Gregory, man proposes, God disposes. Your assailants need to come to that understanding. They have displaced you, not disposed you. You sleep but live; beyond the understanding of the feeble-minded, programmed and destined for the life to come. I celebrate your spirit man and know it is well with you. We miss you, but have always understood that the very essence of life can only be found in Christ our rock. Soldier on my bro till we meet in rising to our maker!!"

"Happy birthday Osayande, though you are gone but never forgotten, you would have been celebrating 48 years of life today but the wicked who cut shot your life will never ever go unpunished, I miss you , miss your smile and all the fun we had together, no day passes when I don't think of you. Sleep on my dear brother till we meet to part no more."

"Happy birthday uncle. I miss you so much and I remember the time we spent together in Nigeria. You were a great uncle with a very kind heart. I remember those days when we used to sit together and watch TV documentaries and soccer games. I did not think that this would be our last moments together. Your death really saddened me on the day I heard about it. I kept thinking about you that night and up till now, I still feel grief from your death. I know that you are in a better place with God in Heaven but I wish you were still on earth with us. May your soul rest in perfect peace with God. I will forever miss you uncle!!"

"I remember Sneaky was so kind to call and check up on me all the way in the states right after I had his nephew Chris. I remember he said how are you doing and I always replied about Chris never about myself and he said so glad to hear that but how are you? I realized I needed to be more well rounded. Even to this day I think about that conversation and practice being the best person I can be. Sneaky was a kind and welcoming brother in law. May he rest in peace."

"Sneaky...I am in tears now! Knowing that I am not ever going to see you again brings a sadness that all the tears shed will not erase. Its been 3 years since I last saw you, but it feels just like yesterday! Perhaps the question I'd like to ask is WHY? Why you? But, only God knows the answer to that. You were snatched away from us at a time you were in your prime of your life. Your death will forever be etched in my memory... and the memory of you will live on in the hearts of those who love you... This is especially hard for me to do... because I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to you, before your assailants did what they do best to people- bring them sorrow!  

you were a gentle brother in whom I was proud to have as a brother. Your death still hurts like a knife through butter that how can you be forgotten?

I miss your laughter.. your smile.. even your cries. which was rare! I miss you my brother, for someone to talk to..

I MISS YOU OSA, And that is just the TRUTH!!!

"Osayande My brother, I miss you so much, I remember the last time I saw you, we hugged, not knowing it was my last hug with you. You told me to cook that you will stop by to eat, I did and kept on calling you to come that it was getting late, you finally came and we sat, you ate, we laughed, held hands and talked about everything and nothing. You said you had to leave now and told me to pack the food that you will take it home with you, I did just like you asked and saw you off, We hugged for a long time and you told me you will be fine, as I watched you go down the road to get a cab. You told me " You worry too much" I said pls go home don't stop by any where else bcos is late, you promised to call me as soon as you get home, not waiting for you to call, I kept calling until you told me you were home and safe. And you thanked me for cooking for you. Osayande was a brother who appreciated anything given to him whether big or small, he will thank you so many times until you tell him to stop thanking you. I miss you. like I often call you" Snicky bo, my bro". You reply me saying "How you dey my Sis"  Here is a Tribute I wrote for you. Sleep well I bro, I LOVE YOU BUT GOD LOVES YOU MORE.


It’s almost  3years now, The time has come when time is no more and all that's left was once before. The memories so dear and true, Are the greatest memories I have of you, I will always remember you, brother of mine in my heart I will keep you, so I will be fine.
It might be hard, I cannot lie. Day by day I think of you, How can all of this be true?
I can't believe you're really gone, I still can't accept it, Even after so long without a farewell.
everyone tells me it is well, but they don't understand my pain they don't know how it feels to be stuck under the rain, I wish I could hold you and tell you that I love you. I wish I could understand I wish I was there to hold your hand maybe I could have changed so many things on that fateful day. Just the thought of you makes me cry, I never even got the chance to say goodbye.
Every picture, And every time we talked, it was always about good times, So many things I never got to say or do, I never imagined you'd ever be so far away.
You were my brother, And I loved you like no other.
In my heart you'll always be, You'll be my guide and help me see. I'll never forget your voice,
But now I have to let you rest, I miss you with all of my heart,
I wish we never had to part I know you not afraid anymore of who would be waiting for you at the door or in the dark to harm you.

It’s almost 3years I lost you brother I wish you had given me the chance
to take one last glance  at you face filled with love before those evil people that ended your life made you fly away like a dove,  rest in peace brother.
I hope you will no longer suffer I will be waiting for you in my dreams
to re-live all those beautiful memories. ADIEU"

"Uncle Osayande,

I didn't really get a chance to spend time with you, and i'm sad that God didn't give me the opportunity to bond with you. Through out the years i had heard so many stories about you and even looking at your pictures i see that you were truly the man Aunty Nekpen described.

No one has been the same since your death and when mommy speaks of you she's filled with sadness at the loss of her brother.

I know you are in God's arms now and finally you are at peace.

RIP Uncle
You are Truly Missed.

"Osayande,I miss you soo much, I remember every moment we shared and spent together, and most especially our last moments, December 2012,with my good friend and sister Patricia Ero, I never knew that was my last moments with you.  I told you I would be back in the country in 3 months, the following year 2013.

We spent the whole evening chatting, had drinks and one of your favorite snacks,Club sandwich.and you kept on saying to me.... Nekpen, can,t thank you enough.... .

.I remember your smile, and your laughter when I did cracked my usual jokes, and you would always say to me, ......Sis I will make you all proud................ You had plans, and I knew you would have achieved it all . I wish I took you far away , maybe that would have protected you from the hands of those who had no fear of God.

I am glad that I was close to you, to share your laughter and thoughts . I have now  taken solace with God, that you are finally resting in his bosom where no one can ever harm you again,a home with no more pains and sadness.

But the misery of your death still hurts me, its almost 3 years now, and i still cannot unravel what went wrong nor get over what happened on that fateful day. I keep imagining how you would have wished someone came to your rescue, to protect you from those evil doers who will never know peace.

Why you, I keep asking myself .I love you my brother so much, that i still feel you are just around and I will come see you. Adieu my brother, Sleep on till we meet to never part again..."
