Erin wo, ajanaku sun bi oke..
(Gen 2:3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it, He rested from all His work, which God had created and made.)
In all my years and travels, I have never met a man who loved God and his children as much as you did Dad. You lived an exemplary life, always choosing the path of peace no matter the circumstances. Not just because you were my dad. Those that met you have spoken of you uprightness and moral wealth in a nation bereft of such.
You sought God daily and like David, took delight in the word of God. You shared this ministry with many that came in contact with you, never for personal glory or financial gain.
You battled with cancer for 17 years and died at an old age. Through it all, you maintained your faith. On reflection, it takes the mercy and grace of God to live that long with a disease that has taken the younger and stronger, in the twinkle of an eye.
Words alone are not enough to express my gratitude for all the sacrifices you made for us. You denied yourself so many pleasures, just so we would not go without. If I have one regret, it is that I couldn't do more for you before you departed. I take succour in the human confidence that you are at the right side of our Lord Jesus. If ever there was anyone deserving of that position, you, Adeyemo deserves that spot.
Sir. Prof. Rev Adeyemo A Aderinto (KJW), prince of Owu, omo alade, omo ta refon, omo egbeji owu, thank you for the honour of being your son. May God give me the strength of your character and the grace to walk the path of honour and dignity that you have laid ahead of me.
Sun re o, Omo’ba Adeyemo Akanbi.
-Adeniyi Aderinto (1st Son of Adeyemo)
