Tribute to my Dad, Joseph Bamidele Olagunju (Ayiti)

Death is the wish of some, the relief of many, and end of all *(Seneca)*.
Dad, if you had not spent up to 80years of age, I would have complained bitterly of an untimely death but Glory be to God for a life well spent.
Baba Ayiti, I learnt so much from simply watching you. You were such an Hardworking, Creative, Intelligent, and Honest father. You always like saying the simple truth which makes some set of people to hate your attitude as Yoruba says "Olooto ilu, ni ika ilu".
Thank you for giving me wonderful and unforgotten childhood memories. I cannot thank you enough for the discipline giving to me while growing up.
"Chairman mi" as I used to call you, I never believe that you will leave us on that faithful day, precisely on Tuesday 3rd of November, 2020 exactly 12:14a.m midnight.
Hmmmm, I am glad you were able to received the Holy Eucharist which is the most essential Sacrament for the smooth journey to eternity and you also received the anointing of the sick before you answered the call of your Creator. These make me believe you are in the midst of Angels and Saints singing joyfully because your sins while alive are forgiven, "A kii mo o rin, k'ori o ma min".
Daddy mi, I feel pains whenever I remember that you did not wait to eat much from my hustle but God knows the best.
May your soul and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
