DISTRAUGHT parents of Oluwabunmi Omotayo Adedayo have penned a dirge for their departed son. The moving tribute, published in Punch (of Thursday, October 3, 2013) captured the pains of Kunle and Yinka Adedayo (both in their 60s).
The owners of popular eatery, Tastee Fried Chicken who lost their only child on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, in Pretoria, South Africa, following complications from pneumonia, are inconsolable.
Those who have visited their Lekki Phase I house (in Victoria Island, Lagos) said the mother (Yinka Adedayo) always clutches her grandson (Morolaoluwa, who is about four months) and never leaves him out of sight.
The arresting dirge stated:
“The only thing we never got a chance to say
(because we never thought we would ever have to)
is that we will miss you
We will miss your smile and laughter
Your eyes dancing with mischief as you
sought to put smiles on other people’s faces
You were a man of peace. You truly are
that gift immensely and redefined generosity.
You had an exceedingly large heart.
As we struggle to come to terms with the fact that
you are no longer physically with us, we thank God
for the rarest gift he could ever
have given us, which is you.”
