"Douglas Carew we miss you so much here on Earth. We know you are rejoicing with the Heavenly Choir but your early departure from this life still stings and we continue to struggle on without you. You were a tremendous and compassionate leader. You will be an inspiration for many years to come to all those whose life you touched. Blessings as you enjoy your heavenly reward."
"We miss you so much, Dr. Carew. Your memory never fades. You were a good leader."
"Its been 2 yrs since you left us. It feels like just the other day. This day I am reminded how you poured out what the Lord had intended you to pour out! your were a blessings to who you met! I know you are enjoying our God's presence."
"It is hard to believe it is 16 months already when we sat in Wayne Pennsylvania for what we hoped to accomplish at AIU. Our meeting ended with a prayer as you left for Indianapolis Indiana. It was 2.00 am a few days later when I was woken up and told you had left us. My dear brother rest in peace and enjoy the presence of Jesus beause that is where we are all looking forward to being in fellowship with our saviour. Josphat Yego"

"Dear Brother Doug, I can hardly believe that I has just been 16 months since you left us so suddenly. We all miss you so much. Even though you are now with the angels singing in that Heavenly Choir, we miss your loving voice back here on earth. Since we must pick up the mantle that you threw to us as you passed into your eternal glory, we travel the journey comforted by your words, "If one wants to go fast, he must travel alone". Your Teddy Bear Brother misses your loving smile and gentle ways. Love, Ed Fischer"
"You are being missed. Your service to God and mankind will be always remembered! You are with the Lord surrounded with joyful celebrations!"

"daddy, I cannot believe that you have gone for so long as your memory is still fresh in my heart. Today as we remember your birthday, I pray that the Lord will be with your dear family."
"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."
"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."
"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!"
""You'll be missed! You are being missed! You truly served your generation with utmost humilty, excellence and distinction! May God enable us to serve our generations with such excellence! Rest in peace, Dr. Douglas Carew! Because Jesus resurrected, you, too - and all the beloved in the Christ - will rise again! All glory to God!""
"Today, the great man was born. He lived to serve God and mankind. Today, he is with our Father in Heaven and is served by angels. We really miss you. DONALD OLA SMART AND FAMILY"
"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!"
"dadddy, on this great occasion of your birthday you are greatly missed but im comforted by the life you lived. Blessed is the day you were born,great and impactful were the days you spent with us,and your memory is with us forever.sleep well dear daddy Carew. I wish we showered all this tributes at you when you were alive , may be you could have still remained with us. Sleep well dear dad"
"Happy Birthday Dr. Carew! You are with our Lord now. I am sure there are celebrations in heaven. I remembered how you had a super Birthday last year! Dearly Missed!"
"Although we miss Douglas so much on this side of heaven, we take assurance in knowing that he is with the Lord. He has lived a life worth emulating. He touched everyone he met, and was always ready to go, preach and teach the Gospel. Examine your relationship with the Lord; let Douglas’ home-going remind us that tomorrow is not a promise. Psalm 95:7-8. This family is in our prayers."
"Scripture Union was such a blessing to me, not only to me personally but to our youth in the Bible school in Makump and the Maranatha Youth Center in Magburaka. Dr. Carew's efforts for Christ were not in vain. Only in eternity will the power of a surrendered life be revealed. I'm looking forward to sharing eternity with many Sierra Leoneons as a result of his life."
"Dear God and Heavenly Father, in our weakness, we bow before You,Reassured that our loved one is safe in Your loving arms and keeping;Draw us, each new day, to a better understanding of Your will and way.Open were his hands and heart to share God’s love and peace to allUnassuming, selfless and caring – a true example of servant leadership,Giving his utmost in his Christian devotion."
"It was with great dismay that we heard this. Dr. Carew lived a life that counts for eternity. We remember him as a caring Daddy to all. I still cherish occasions where we benefited from the fellowship of your family. Mom Ayiku, Seneiya, and my brothers we pray that the Lord, who knows you, will speak words of peace to your heart. Our prayers are with you."
"A great inspiration you were to many.The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh.As your students we feel a gap that only God can fill.One day we will meet with you in heaven,and lo!The Lord Jesus Christ himself will be present.Carew's family be encouraged in the Lord,He is in a better place awaiting for the great reunion."
""So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord...Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. 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"
"The short time that I knew Dr. Carew, it was abundantly evident that he was a man after God's own heart and deeply loved and respected by his friends and colleagues. May his family and AIU feel God's peace and comfort during these difficult days."
"RIP Dr. Carew. You served God's purpose in your generation. God must have said "Well done good and faithful servant, come in the place of my rest". Till we meet again at the feet of Jesus.
May your family find rest in the Lord all the days their lives."
""Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?" (1 Cor 15:55) Dr. Carew, you were many things to many people, but we all agree on these common denominators that, you were a personification of Humility, Integrity & Magnanimity (HIM) RIP"
"Yesterday was a hard day for me in Nigeria. I watched the time, read the program and prayed. I thank God for the privilege of knowing Dr. Carew, a true man of God. My prayers are for mama, the children, all of us, the extended family. May the Lord comfort us all. You will not be forgotten."
"daddy, i came to terms with the reality of your departure today as your body was gently lowered into the grave but i was greatly comforted when i saw the peace around you even in death you looked calm and peaceful like a baby.Rest in perfect peace my dear daddy Carew. we truly love you but Jesus loves you more.."
""I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow." Jer. 31:13 Love and prayers from your Rosslyn Academy family."
"douglas, my friend, colleague at NEGST, spiritual mentor, friend of kenya, true panafricanist. i recall many discussions we held on kenya, its hopes, its aspirations. i recall your uniquely deep and incisive insights on kenya's law and politics, more than an average local, your belief in africa's + destiny. brother you left your mark, but kenya and africa has lost one of its best sons."
"It one thing to call ourselves Christians…it’s another thing to live it…you exemplified true Christian living and Christian leadership. Soft spoken...but deep. A legend, example and an inspiration. My sincere condolences. May God comfort the family and AIU. Pauline Njuguna (Finance Committee-AIU, 2012)"

"Mrs Aycu Carew and children,
We continue to pray for you and give thanks to God for the wonderful life of Douglas. We all expected him to serve for many more years, but God knows best.
Keep anchoring on the victory of Jesus over death.
God makes your lives still a blessing to others.
Rev. Canon Emerson Thomas"
"You were a brave warrior, you fought the good fight and we can say confidently that you have won the race. It was great working and serving with you when I was the student representative. The news about your journey back to our maker was shocking and unbelievable to many of us, it was like a big joke. We will always love you Doc."
"From the family at TCCA: Our deepest sympathies to the Carew and AIU families. May the Lord grant you comfort and peace at this time of need!"
"Daktari, you will truly be missed by many of us who passed through your hands while in NEGST now Africa International University. How to read a book by Mortimer J. Adler and Introduction to Biblical Interpretation by Klein, Blomberg and Hubbard will remain to be a lasting memory for me as they will always remind me of you. It was great working and serving with you. R.I.P Daktari."
"What can one say after the AEA meeting in Senegal! only Christ can tell.
To the Family: May Christ be your portion forever and ever. We may not understand it all but one day when we cross the other shore, we will love Christ more and more. RIP Dr. Carew God loved you most."
"God knows better than we do what is good to us. However there are moments we fail to understand his perfect will for our lives. Dr Carew was indeed a friend and little did we know the Lord would be calling him when we had a meeting at his home recently. Aiko and the family we are with you in prayer and we believe we will meet Dr Carew in Heaven when our time comes."
""What a friend and father we have in Jesus" We will surely miss you!
We love you but Jeuse loves you the best. Uncle Daug may your soul rest in peace with our Lord. We will meet again one day.
REST IN PEACE!!!! Karen and the kids will miss you!"
"Just want to let you know that caring thoughts are with you in your sorrow. May the spirit of God comfort and console you and may Douglas' soul rest in perfect peace.
With Deepest Sympathy,
From The Boyle Family."
"Dear Dr Carew
May u rest in peace. Your presence will forever be missed and remembered by kids like me who grew up in Negst."
"Uncle Dougie has been a great friend and mentor to me since our days together as staff of Scripture Union (Sierra Leone) where his special gift of rightly handling God's Word through Bible Expositions at SU Camps and Easter (Family) Retreats was discovered and greatly appreciated. May our God of comfort walk this journey with all of us. Romans 8:31 - 39."
"It is hard to accept the loss,i have not yet come into terms that our Vice Chancellor and neighbor Dr.Carew has gone to be with the Lord.Your humility and smiles will be in our memories.My family is with you Mrs Carew,praying that the good Lord will give you peace.I remember very vividly when you and Dr.Carew visited us when i was unwell,good neighborhood.God will wipe away our tears"
"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"
"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."
