Daddy,
You were the Daddy we never had; the very first that we ever called Daddy. You were our Daddy and will always be. We love you so much and will miss you so much more. Thank you sir, for the fatherly love and care you showed us. Rest in eternal peace Daddy.

You were the very epitome of goodness, an indefatigable promoter of unity and togetherness. Your passing is a very bitter reality to accept, you were simply a very good man, a phenomenon. Rest in eternal peace my worthy in-law. We love you so much but God loves you most.

DEHINDE
(for Dehinde E. Akerejola)

Melancholy overwhelmed me
you too left
one too many

You fought it with pharmakon
your better-half did
we too. On our knees

You embraced it
like Christ in Gesthemane
"...not what l will..."

The windingsheet fell
it seems over
but nay! It's not

Images. Of your love and light
are engraved. And embalmed
in our memories. Forever

Dehinde, you can never be
a finished silence
though Homeward you turn and plod now

Until we finish
living and reminiscing
you are not over

Dehinde, you are not over

And so EDA, my soul mate is no more. You left us all without a word of goodbye. What is ironic about the news of your demise is the fact that you who had always admonished me and others to be very careful, was the very victim, cut down by the same pandemic. We shall all keep alive all the ideals you were very well known for,your fortrightness, your unalloyed love for all and sundry and your generosity. May God provide for all your family members and we your friends alike. Rest in peace, my dear EDA.

Words cannot express how I feel. God only knows why he needed you in Heaven more than we need you here. An Angel in life and eternally remembered. You lived the type of life most would aspire to. A man of virtue, values and faith; you showed us how to walk the path close to Christ by setting us an example.

I can still remember all of the talks we had, All of the laughs and smiles. I remember when you told me you were proud of me. I remember every time you called me how we would chat a debate and learn more about each other. I can remember all the pieces of advise you gave me to help me become a better woman. I thank God every day for bringing us back together. There is nothing in the world more valuable than the relationship we built even after being apart for so long. You are the perfect example of a father.

I still don’t want to believe some days but I know God needed you by his side. I love you so much ❤️

It all started when mummy gave birth to me
You were always there to take care of me
Although I wish you were still here to do that
But God's time is the best
And I know that no matter what, you will still be taking care of us in heaven
Anytime I look at the mirror and see myself
I always see you because obviously we are alike in more ways than one
So I know you still live in me
I remember all the fun times we had together
All the advice you gave me
No doubt that you were a wise man
You always told me to thank God in all we do and all that happens
So I thank God for your death
All we need to do is to celebrate and make you happy and proud
Thank you dad.

Hey dad, is so sad that you had to leave us so soon, well we can't do anything but to thank God.
You were a very humble and great man, the best dad I could ever have.
You have made so much impact and sacrifices in my life and I thank you for that.
If the world was to come to an end so we could have a redo, I would want you to be my dad over and over again.
You were the best father, husband, friend, brother, son-in-law etc that anyone could wish for.
There's just no one in this whole world that could replace a father's love for his daughter and no Father can ever replace you and the love I have for you daddy.
I don't want to call this a tribute but an apprication letter to you.
Thank you daddy for always being there for me and I know that as you are in heaven you are still here for me and all of us.
I love you daddy, was the last thing I told you when I last saw you , but guess what daddy I still love u and I will always love you. Thank you daddy.

It's hard writing this and almost still impossible that this has actually happened. But who are we to question God.

Daddy, throughout the years
you’ve always been a wonderful man to us. When we were small you took the time to bounce us on your knee

As we grew older, you were there see

We only had to call

We knew that we could count on you and never let us fall

Look at how time flies

So many hard times in our lives

You’ve helped to get us through

I’m so glad God gave us
a father and husband as special as you.

Believing the words I imagine you will be saying to my mom, siblings and I will be,
"A limb has fallen from the family tree

It's okay to grieve, but don't grieve too much for me

Remember the best times, the laughter and the songs

The good I lived while I was strong
Continue my legacy, I’m counting on you

Keep on smiling, the sun will shine through

My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest

Remembering all…how I was truly blessed

Continue traditions, no matter how small

Go on with your lives, don’t stare at the wall

I miss you all dearly so keep up your chin

Until the beautiful day in paradise that we’re together again

For me to live in Christ, and to die is gain"

My father's twin, you call yourselves Senior and junior, always in contact with him not minding the distance. The distance couldn't stop you two.
Did you really leave March 9th? Exactly 3 years Senior left this world? Did you both planned it? Who can give me answeres to all these questions?
Bridge builder,truth upholder,humble, straight forward,very strict,very principled,
Oh Uncle Dehinde, ílè dàhòròò.
My heart bleeds,my tears are red.
Who can heal and take away this pain that I feel so much?
Thank you for loving me like your own.
Even in death,God bless you.
Rest in peace uncle,rest in perfect peace till we meet again,God loves you more.
Adieu............

The darkness is so palpable
The grief is so unbearable
The tears are so unstoppable
To say, “adieu” now is so unimaginable

We love you, but God loves you best.
But, Almighty God, you owned,
You gave and you took away
Glory to your Name!

Leave a Tribute
