"Goodbye Dougie! I wish there was rhyme or reason to the time and manner of our entrance and exit of the stage of life.
The cruelty of death has yet again left a void of pain in our hearts. It was so unexpected.
You left us all with the impossible task of attempting to give meaning of this to your parents, wife, children and siblings."

This tribute was added by Crispin Cole on 28th April 2013

"To me you were a special brother and friend. To others you were a mentor, teacher, counselor, roll-model, colleague and friend.
Very soon your office will be filled, we will all return to our businesses as usual. This is just how life is.
On the other hand your family will forever lose a special part of themselves.
Their tears will continue to run, their questions will remain unanswered."

This tribute was added by Crispin Cole on 28th April 2013

"Your message to us though, is that it’s not the quantity but the quality of our existence that matters.
I pray our God of comfort will console and heal all those who feel this pain; more so,
Pa and Mama Carew, Ayiku,  Oluniyi, Rodney and Seneiya. Rola, Thelma, Bertha and Vicky.

To live in the hearts and minds of those we leave behind is not to die.

Goodbye my friend!"

"Worth of a Soul: God Gave His Only Son
...Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26
In the world's markets, something which has no value for a disinterested person may be considered of great value to another who desires it and purchases it. In this sense, we may learn how dear and precious we are to Christ by what He was willing to give for us!"

So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him." ( 2 Cor. 5:6-8) - In the Lord, death is a promotion"

"Where is Dr Carew?
This question  bogs the mind of every new student at the AIU. Whenever you are at the chapel for fellowship , one wonders  who  and where is Dr Carew.  Just like Christ in the midst of the disciples was not known, except   when He stands to deliver inspired revelation as the oracle of God.  
Where is Dr Carew? This  can become a  research question in pastoral or anthropological"

This tribute was added by Simon Khaemba on 27th November 2012

"Dr. Carew influenced my decision to join NEGST. His humility and readiness to share at that personal level cannot be compared-for a person holding the office that Carew held. I am greatly indebted to him. The theology, simplicity, power, and reflective preaching only but left me longing for more. My prayer to God is that God's grace be multiplied toward his family, and that AIU continues."
