"It was shocking and disheartening to receive news of your demise.
Despite the Foul you experienced in life is far beyond the Fair, across the Bridge was the end! Irreversible as it is, we can not but keep your memory resounding. It is my prayer your Factors find favour in the sight of the sovereign God. Till we meet to part no more... I say cheerio."

We often say the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we imagine that hour as placed in an obscure and distant future. It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun or that death could arrive the same morning, afternoon, evening and night. Your journey to the world beyond began in the middle of the night  of (17/11/2015).

Just last week gone you reported my sister to me and I quote ‘Jolade kose nkan ti oni kose o Bolaji’. My response was my in law, 'I will remind you of the Yoruba saying that ‘Okun kii ho ruru. Ki’a wa ruru’ meaning, you don’t navigate a stormy sea with equal aggression.  You said to me that, tani esinsin ma gbe bi ki se elegbo, meaning who will the fly support if not the person with the sore in the body.

In preparing for this tribute, I received a lot of input from many different people. People you have never met, people who knew and love you. People that shared stories and experiences with you. As I listened to these stories, in all of this communication, there is one word that permeates, that seems to clearly embody the sweet light of SUNDAY ADERANTI- kind. My able and ever reliable in-law would do anything for you. He was strong. If you needed a friend you could call, call him and he would come to you. If you needed a place to stay his home was always open. He would go out of his way to help people in need. He truly cared about others and his warm smile always made you feel welcome.

Meaningfully there is one major adjective that I feel greatly describes the man that my sister (Jolade) was privileged to married, the man that I was privileged to know; One adjective that could only begin to describe the experience of his last year. That word is BRAVE. The past year he was a brave warrior. I don’t want to write this tribute about the recent past. Though it did exist and brought us together, the Sunday that is in our hearts, and in our memories, far exceeds last year experiences. Sunday was laughter. He was life. He was, and he is, love.

I am going to share a few adjectives that his friends and family have used to describe him sweet, gentle, welcoming, loving, giving, caring, open, fathering, supportive,faithful,accepting, fun-loving, silly, thoughtful, true, kind,compassionate, kind hearted,generous and my personal favourite… In-law to jasi.

When I heard that you had left us, I was simply blown away. How could that be possible? My mind glazed back to the last time I saw you (August 2013). I remember vividly the old times, your smile, love, kindness, and encouragements. I even remembered our discussions last week, your dedication and zeal. I wondered why it happened this way but I was consoled by the fact that the owner of souls says it is time. For this reason, I have decided to celebrate you instead of mourn you.

Handsome Sunday Aderanti, you were all I could ask for in a brother-in-law , a gemstone of a man. Thank you for the light that you brought unto this world, as you watch down upon us, as you shine in the sky at night and dance in the breeze that kisses our faces, know in the depth of your soul, that you did us proud. You will surely be missed.

On behalf of our entire family in Nigeria and abroad we wish you farewell my in-law, my brother and my confidant. Dance on Angel Sunday Aderanti, you have lived your life well!!!!!

Mobolaji Aregbesola."

"Brother Sunday, I learnt of your demise just yesterday but I couldn't believe it. To say it came to me as a shock is an understatement, because I still can't believe that you're gone. Just about 2 weeks ago when I was with you in company of my nephew whom you were trying to help in climbing d ladder of success, you only told us that you were going to Ibadan that day.  It never occur to us that you were going to leave us so soon. Adieu big brother with the heart of gold. We love you but God loves you most. May your gentle soul continue to rest in perfect peace. Goodnight sir"

"Dear Uncle,

Pain and regrets filled my heart as a write because I can’t believe you gone. I am filled with regrets because I know you suffered on my behalf; you suffered for me to be part of this family.  You may be an uncle to me, but I know you as my Father. You have been by my side since I was a child. When I was bedridden in IKare for 3 years, your face was constantly the one I see.  When I was in Motolani and Igbobi hospital; Daddy you were always by my side. Daddy, you fought for me to be where I am today and I regret the fact that you did not eat the fruit of your labour. I love you my beloveth Father, but God loves you more and may you rest in peace till we meet again.

"I stand here speechless, with my month agape ruminating over those old good days; your caring attitude and gentleness, your unsentimental show of love and great understanding.  You were an ICON that will forever on the 'windows' of our heart, an uncommon gem.  It pains me to see you depart in our mist at the time you are most needed. The news of your death plunged my heart into melancholy. Pls Ebenezer Aderemi Sunday Aderanti rest on till we meet and part no more. - Wale Kareem."

This remains a rude shock to me. Sunny ororo, as I loved to call you. We spoke last week Saturday and again a day before your demise. As if you were passing a message that your time was up. I was looking forward to your trip to Germany next week. I knew we would have had more than enough time to talk virtually everyday. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be. A day after our last discussion, I got a call that you were dead!

Really! Sunday Aderemi Aderanti dead! I still can't comprehend this and don't know how to forge ahead with life. But I know my God is able.

Everyone that knew us together knows how much I took pride in our friendship. I can boldly say that you were one of the few people I could count on whenever I got myself into 'trouble'. You remained a steadfast confidant and rallying point amongst our friends. You were willing at all times to sacrifice anything that you had to put smile on other peoples' face.

I couldn't have imagined that I wouldn't see you alive again. But who are we to question the decision of our creator? All I can pray for is that may you find everlasting peace in the bosom of our creator, may the Lord bless and keep the young family that you left behind, and may the good Lord bless and keep you till we meet again.

Rest in perfect peace Aderemi. It was a great pleasure to have known you.

Adeyemi Alao."

"The news of your demise came to me as a rude shock. I thought you were in coma until the next day when the news was further confirmed.  It was then it occurred to me that we will no longer be together like we used to be.  May your soul rest in peace. Amen."
