Read the tribute below

Dear Yinka,

Blessed man, brother, friend, love, father. I miss you so much in mind, body, and spirit. I never loved somebody as deeply as I loved you. If I could have caught you to stop your fall, I would have been there. May your light shine abundantly! I am not ready to say goodbye and I hope we will meet again in another time and another place. Your time was too short. Your gifts were so special. Your smile was so pure. Your mind was a ladder of intellect and curiosity brimming with childlike imagination.

We will miss your presence. I leave all things in God’s
hands. Love and peace. RIP Yinka Olonode
With Universal Love, Lillie Halpern

What could have caused an able man to jump to his death from a 15-storey building.

This world is full of all sorts of wickedness.

May God grant his family the fortitude to bear his loss.
