Daddy was daddy. He was caring, very jovial and kind hearted though strict on some issue which is alright and expected. I had a lot of encounters and beautiful memories of daddy because I used to visit him and spend time with him occasionally I will however only share my last encounter with him which was a day before he passed and the memory is still very fresh. It was clear he was very uncomfortable and tired but in his usual attitude asked after all my children one after the other and prayed for them. That really touched me. I pray the Almighty grants him eternal rest and console the entire family.

TRIBUTES TO PAPA AGBOOLA OLANREWAJU ODUNSI

What a joy it would have been if people we love don't die; even at an advanced age but every journey will surely have an end. The wicked hands of death has snatched you away from us.

Your relationship with us had matured from a landlord to a father. You were a straightforward person, you don't pretend or hide your feelings. Thank you for the extension of love even to our children. You were a real mentor. We will miss a man full of humanity.

Sleep on beloved Papa, till we meet on the resurrection morning to part no more.

Bisi and Dolapo Ogunkanmi.

***** Otunba Agboola Olanrewaju Odunsi (25/05/1931 - 16/02/2021) *****

Uncle, I still can’t believe I am writing a tribute because of your passing. Words cannot describe this difficult moment, but if this is the last time I get to say goodbye then I know I will do so with the knowledge that I consider myself blessed to have lived this life as your nephew.
You touched so many lives by your selfless and countless acts of kindness, always giving and never expecting any favours in return. Your dedication to a cause was what set you apart. For every institution you worked for, you laid the path for others to succeed.
The benefits of your hard work is a living testimony for so many young men and women you took under your wings at a personal and professional level.
Uncle, you were and will always be an inspiration to myself, the entire family and anyone who worked with you. You have left a void in the family that will never be filled.
While we mourn today, we also take comfort in the fact that your mission on earth have been fulfilled. We thank the Lord for your life and bid you farewell until we meet again

Ps: Still in disbelieve. I remember asking Sister Funmi to pass on the dream I had about you visiting me in the UK for a Medical Check-Up ( about 2-3 weeks before you went to be with the Lord ) and the result of all the test came out positive and you were able to get back on your feet... little did I know it’s was a way of you saying goodbye ( in my dreams )

his Life

Dance With My Father

Back when I was a child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved
If I could get another chance
Another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
How I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again, ooh
When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me, yeah, yeah
Then finally make me do just what my momma said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
If I could steal one final glance, one final step
One final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
'Cause I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again
Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me
I know I'm praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved?
I know you don't do it usually
But dear Lord she's dying to dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream
