    To my former boss Dr. Gbayisomore, my heart is filled with sadness, eyes filled with tears and my hands feel so heavy to type but I must soldier on and say that you were a great Family man, Doctor, Boss and Mentor.

    I worked with you for 2 years at your clinic and what I remembered the most was your generosity, smile and big bowtie. You were truly a splash of color in a a dark world. I remember you promise me one day that whenever my mom comes to the States from Liberia and need to do see a doctor she should come see you and you would see her free of charge. You lived up to your promise. You encouraged me to pursue my dreams, be healthy and further my education. I will miss you but I know that to be absent from body is to be present with the Lord.

    I pray that your wife and children find peace with your passing. The peace that passeth all understanding.

    MAY your beautiful soul rest in everlasting peace!

    I meet Dr. Gbayismore @ the VA Hospital. He had a contagious smile that would make you smile.

    I'll always remember his charming personality and smile.

    Gone Too Soon

    Like a comet
    Blazing 'cross the evening sky
    Gone too soon

    Like a rainbow
    Fading in the twinkling of an eye
    Gone too soon

    Shiny and sparkly
    And splendidly bright
    Here one day
    Gone one night

    Like the loss of sunlight
    On a cloudy afternoon
    Gone too soon

    Like a castle
    Built upon a sandy beach
    Gone too soon

    Like a perfect flower
    That is just beyond your reach
    Gone too soon

    Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight
    Here one day
    Gone one night

    Like a sunset
    Dying with the rising of the moon
    Gone too soon
    Gone too soon

    This came to us all as a great shock! i am still yet to comprehend it even after his Burial! He was more than a brother to me, He was a father, a guardian! An epitome of peace! Though it pains me greatly but I will surely take my solace the fact that He has gone to Rest in the Bosom of our Lord Jesus! My hearltfelt condolence goes to Carmen and my little Nephews and Niece.

    Gbayi ekun (tiger);
    While you may not be able to read this , it is meant as a testimony to you; a good man.
    Questions often arise about ,"why do the good ones gets plucked by our Lord", it is simple! It is because they are special, and have earned their wings? Some earn it sooner than others.
    The Christ's School community will miss and mourn your passing. Gbayi was my junior in high school, and was in Harding house with me , if my memory serves me right. There has always been something special, yet ordinary about him. He is unassuming, smart, respectful, and had a crooked smile. He embraces his alum status, and when we last met at a union, he was his old self, with a mature rounding.
    I extend my condolence to his family. It will now rest on them to keep his children in the ways of their father; teaching, and reminding them of his values, and what made him successful. I used to tease him about his mustache, it made him look distinguished . He has now joined the 'ones' who watch and shake their heads at our folly.
    Let us now mourn him less, but celebrate his time on earth, the good and those he heard known he had done; as a friend, physician, Christian,son, brother, cousin, uncle,father,, colleagues, class mates.See you later Gbayi.

    If there ever was a perfect doctor, Dr. Gbayisomore was the one. Full of compassion, always took the time to talk with his patients and allay all their fears. This was truly his calling or should i say he was chosen. His pleasant personality and exceptional bedside manner will be greatly missed by his patients (including my mother) and friends and colleagues alike. For his wife Carmen and the rest of the family may God's peace be with you until you reunite with him in the earth made new.

    My dearest Akingboju,

    I really want to thank God first for sending you into our life, our visiting angel.
    Yes our Angel, my angel. You are my brother, my love, my confidant........ Can't stop ...you were everything to me.

    The depth of our love, only the Lord can understand.
    We were friends by choice irrespective of our blood relationship and I learnt a lot of life's
    Peculiarities from you.

    We went each stage of life together, building up on each other, complementing our strengths and weaknesses.
    When a big smile was needed, I called you to do that, when it was a diplomatic speech to convince...it was my turn.
    We shared everything, pity we could not share the shoes...remember we shared tee shirts and some jeans.

    My chemistry Lambert text book still at Ado Ekiti.....reminded you to get it the last time you went to visit Christ school....incurable memory you would say.

    We were extreme opposite socially but I would still shield you...let you out of the house in the night at Onike Yaba, and quietly sneak you in before any one wakes up.. Thank God I was a light sleeper.
    We would practice the latest dance steps but you agreed I was a better dancer....only Uncle Olu could beat me.

    You taught me always to expect so much from people and give the best too.
    Step by step we took lifes journey together but you broke my heart with the news that you were relocating to the U.S.....couldn't forgive you for almost a year, as with all things, you found a clever way of dealing with this.

    So many promises, so many plans soooo many. So tell me who will I review all these with? Even on your sick bed , you still reviewed some of them with me....
    You had the trach on at Saint Barnabas but wrote down ?........ I promised you I would consider this....God will help me....you will not be there???my heart bleeds..
    Only the Lord can pour his balm where it hurts. All that I would want you to do, the Lord would do for me and much more.

    Every time I shared with you the need for a better relationship with Christ, you will teach the bible without really accepting or rejecting what I had to say.
    But that faithful day at Saint Barnabas hospital, you were eager to learn more about building a relationship with Jesus Christ. You confessed him as Lord and saviour...what joy filled my heart. I was so grateful to the holy spirit for the conviction...

    That is my greatest consolation now Akingboju.....we will meet at the feet of Jesus. There shall be no separation there. Jesus will be the Chairman and King.

    I promise to look after your "babe" Carmen ....my darling sister. Together we would look after those sweethearts....God will help us, they will never lack anything good in Jesus name
    God help me to continue where you stopped at the effort of family unity... Miss you sooooo much. A o pade lese Jesu.

    Yossie.....

    My Dear Sweet Uncle,

    I still can't believe that you are gone. I'm going to miss you. I remember the memories we shared, the conversations, & the laughs. I remember when I first got to the United States over 15 years ago & our first conversation. Your advice to me then, stayed with me & shaped my path & life in this country today. You were such a loving man, always willing to help & do for others. You were a selfless man, full of life. I ask God daily since the day He took you away from us. Why? But who are we to question God? He has His reason for doing what He does. I remember our last converstation & we shared our moments, even in your pain &discomfort you still gave me advice. I will miss our conversations, your smile, your laugh, your advice, how you used to call my name "Medun,  Medun, Medun" then ask, " how many times did I call you?" & follow up with an advice or word of wisdom, always speaking parables. I will miss most especially your genuine love. 
    I remember when we were much younger in Masaba,  we all thought you were mum's brother instead of dad's. Because you were so close. I remember one of many of our conversations which included you humming the song " awa yin Olorun", & I told you that's a song that's normally song on new year's day. Your response to me was " you must celebrate each day like it's the beginning of a New Year".
    You were always very good with bringing family together, you didn't want conflicts or disagreements between people. Your loving, caring nature. Having parties, reunions etc.Uncle, I guess you succeded once again in bringing everyone together even though this is so sad & it's to bid our final farewell to you.
    I have so many fantastic memories we shared, that I will forever cherish.  I will forever keep you in my heart & you will always be with me. No one understood the special bond we shared, no one could comprehend it but we had that bond between a neice & uncle that was special & rare. I remember my 21st birthday in Minnesota, you surprised me & flew there to celebrate it with me. It was a  very special day indeed! I remember my wedding day, you were the Chairman of the occasion & gave a very special speech. 
    I know you are in a much better place, where there is no more pain, discomfort or sorrow & you are looking down & smiling at us all right now. On August 1st, 2012, Heaven received a very Special Angel.

    Uncle played the reverse role of a patient during his last days on earth. Uncle played a starring role as a patient in his last act of his life

    My Dear Uncle, Continue to sleep in the bosom of our Lord. 

     Aiye Loja, Orun Nile!

    Sun Re O, Odigba!!

    Your Niece
    Medunola Solomi (nee Gbayisomore)
