|Let the memory of Femi be with us forever|
"'It is not how far but how well',
sleep on bro till the resurrection day. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace."
"Sir, I never met you but know you beautiful family in Nigeria. We trusted God for full healing but he had greater plans for you, than our thoughts and hearts could comprehend. Continue to rest in the Bosom of the All knowing Mighty God. GRCC member."
"We miss you great guy.
You were a blessing to your world.
Though difficult to believe, but Jehovah knows best.
Rest in His bosom, till we meet again."
"Dear uncle Femi Ajifowobaje Johnson, you are like a good father to us, when our father died we miss you so much. Why do you have to leave us so soon .
Till we see again in heaven. We love you so much, and we are going to miss you.
Opemipo, Ayomipo, Olamipo Nsini-Godwin"
"Tribute to a Dear Friend and beloved Brother, Femi Ajifowobaje.
Ah!! My heart is heavy and broken at your demise.
What a great surprise, a great loss of a comrade and soldier of Christ. Genuine Man of God; full of passion, compassion and dedication.
Who would have thought you can leave us and this sinful world so soon. We would have all fought the battle with you, if possible share the fight between us until the last day. If there is anything else we could do to avert your death, I belt we would have done it. We love you my dear brother, we love you. But, as your name depicts “Oluwafemi”, God loves you more. You fought as a soldier my brother, even till you took your last breath. This portrays your true character; a great warrior of Christ, full of zeal and compassion, dedicated to the core.
I couldn’t still come to term with your demise; I remember the few moments we had together before Sunday 22nd November. In spite of the pain, you still find the courage to be cheerful, smile and put smile on our faces. You never let your pain, ill health dictate your love for God and dedication to his service. In the midst of the challenging situation, you managed to carry out your duties to the best of your ability. You never missed any of the church service; never stop praising your maker whom you have returned to. You always remained positive, hoping for the best.
Since that faithful day, Sunday 22nd November I can’t stop asking these same questions over and over again; why? Why? And why do bad things happen to good people like you?
Now, I come to realisation of the fact that it doesn’t matter how you die, when you die or where you die. What matters is the legacy you left behind….
Ah!! Brother Femi, my one and only original Femi, you have left a vacuum that no one can fill, you have left a very good legacy that is irreplaceable. You have registered your love, thought, life, and influence upon every life that came across your way in the space of short period of time. Your legacy lives on my brother…..
I am still trying to recollect the first day I met you, but couldn’t remember anything about the day because the moment we met we were like blood brothers from Adam. You are indeed a true brother-in-Christ, always ready to give and share everything if not equally. I am already missing you my dear brother, my friend, my fellow soldier.
Femi!! You have taught everyone and me in particular a very good lesson about service to God and humanity. That, there is nothing you can give to the service of God that is too much or a waist. You spent your entire life sacrificing for others both young and adult alike, making sure you put smile on their faces, never complain, never tired of doing good, never tired of giving your substance to others and more importantly to the course of the gospel.
We will miss you my dear brother…..
Rest Brother Femi!! Rest in perfect peace of God till we meet again and part no more.
"It was the shocking news that brought tears to my eyes.And you made me remember what it was like to cry.On that dreadful day,God decided it was your time,so He took your life away.And everyone felt the pains,It`s harder than i ever thought life could be without you,so the family will always think of you.Rest in perfect peace."
"Oh my !! Words fail me......
Egbon Femo !!
What wont i miss about you? Is it the way you stress the letter "P" when you call me Mummy p ? Or our Ogbono soup parols? You were never too busy to help others .No distance was too short or far for you to make.
O How the children will miss you!
I remember with laughter memories of you with a bus load of children screaming with joy and excitment with ice cream dripping down their hands. You hardly took your children out for treats alone without taking all your "other children" along. You were a santa for all times and not just xmas.
I mentioned a few days ago that we didnt really understand how you joggled all those commitments together all these years, now we know why, you had limited time and had to make it count.......
I will miss your signature grilled chicken "Yilata"
I will miss your smiles.....
I willl miss how we yab ourselves.....
I will miss you as a Minister in church.....
I will miss you as Pastor's special friend.....
I will miss you as a special Angel sent to my family when we needed one.
Sleep on dear brother, You came , you saw you conquered.
Saints dont die, they only gained their wings,
We will meet again someday, at the Lord's feet.
Between now and then, we will treasure the memories we shared...."
"With Christ which is FAR better ?Phil 1.23

"A special person...
Someone we loved and can never be replaced...
The dignity of man is to leave a humble and respectful life..
You give all ur best.
You will always be remembered...
Enjoy ur place of honour at the right hand of our Lord...
""This is a hard one to swallow, but it is also inevitable. What's most important is that you are with your Heavenly Father.... May the good Lord grant every member of your family the fortitude and comfort they need to bear this pain. You will be greatly missed. We love you."
"If tears can build a stairway and memories a handrail, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again. Your actions were always kind, a generous hand and an active mind you are.
anxious to please and loath to offend .
We'll all miss you. till we meet again.... RIP Uncle"
"According to C. S. Lewis " the death of a loved one is like an amputation ", this is how I can describe your passing away . Femi, a friend, bother-inlaw and fellow soldier in God's army, since Sunday, there is one question that's on my mind, what is life?
Life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, one day our heart is going to stop and that will be the end of the body but not the end of that life. There will be continuation of that life in eternity. Femi, you figured out that this earth is just a preparation for eternity, that God wants us to practice on earth what we are going to be doing in heaven.
You put smiles on people's faces, you render selfless help and advice. Your help and support for brethren was second to none, not weary in well doing, doing good unto all men ( gender inclusive ) as opportunity presents itself, especially unto them who are of the household of faith, according to Galatians 6 : 9-10. You impacted lIves, encouraged friends and family to get closer to God.
Femi , you were a giver : a giver of time, love and resources. According to your pastor, Pastor Kenny, ' Br Femi died empty '.
Femi, you have fought a good fight, you have finished your course, you have kept the faith. Henceforth, there is laid up for you a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give you at that day according to 2TM 4 : 7-8. Femi, my dear brother, good night and sleep well . I know that I by His grace, I will see you in heaven .
"Bro Femi ...... hmm mm. Still remember your smile, your soft tone voice, your pleasant greetings, your selfless service, your big heart. You always put everyone before yourself. You have the heart of God. I can't believe you have left us, I really can't. I stood by your bed yesterday looking at you and all I wanted to do was shake you and call you back. I know you are with our Lord right now you are where pain and sorrow don't exist.
We really miss you Bro Femi and we love you. I pray that may your sweet blessed soul rest in perfect peace in Jesus name."
""Adieu, Bro Femi! I remember how you always encourage us in planning for the family picnic...you were such a committed and strong soldier in the vineyard. Rest well Bro Femi till we see to part no more. We love you but God loves you more ""
"Femo. ..yes that's what we call you back then in school...knew you since 1996 and then met again in the U.K.in 2006..I don't want to mourn you my friend ..I want to celebrate you...for the love,friendship n joy you have brought to many who came in contact with you...am sad though but happy you are now in a btter place...sleep tight my friend..it is well...luv always ."
"On hearing this sad news yesterday, the only words that came out of my mouth was - "I will see you soon" Love you and will be greatly missed. Your constant smile lingers in my memory and will surely be till we meet again. Rest in perfect peace of the Lord."
"Femo as I always fondly call you; still in shock really. We met back in school then in 1996/97 and then again in the UK in 2006 . I have always known you as a kind and gentle hearted person , always with a smile and ever willing to help . I can't believe you're gone so soon but I know you're in a better place now resting in the bossom of the Almighty God . Will definitely miss you, sleep well dear friend till we meet again."
"Adeiu, Brother Femi! You left too soon. I remember your ever smiling face. You were loving, kind, caring and always ready to lend a helping hand to others. You served the Lord selflessly and sacrificially. My joy is that you are at the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are in a better place than we are now. Rest my brother, rest! We will meet you again some day."
"Its so hard to think and accept that you could leave us at this time to meet with the lord on the other side...our heart is so heavy, our eyes is full of tears and we can not help it, just thinking about your commitment, love, care, calmness and such great devotion to the service of God and man. Bro femi words are not enough to express my heart felt tribute but i give God thanks knowing that i will see you again on the last day. Adieu beloved brother till we see again."
"Bro Femi, you were indeed a reliable Worker in God's Vineyard.
Rest in Peace"
"Life!!! Bro Femi, so this is it? we thought you'll always be with us, we thought you won't have to leave us...But Life!....For 2 consecutive years we organise the RCCG CRA/ST.ANNS Family picnic together. Your commitments, hard works and positive spirit will not be forgotten so soon. You are a fighter, you are strong and my believe is that you are saved....I am sad, but I won't mourn like those without hope in resurrection, because I know that the resurrection day will be glorious and we shall meet to part no more...Rest on a Great Soldier of Christ."
"Wow! Brother Femi...can't believe it's true. I only taught of you some few weeks back and only to read about this morning. The good thing is I definitely know you are in a better place, I only met you when I relocated to Nottingham and you took me like a brother, encouraged my participation in church activities. I will always remember you as the church driver; making sure we all get to church for the sunday service.....sarcrificing your time, making more than one trip on some days. When I told you I was relocating, you connected me to one of your brothers in united state, trying to help secure employment before I relocate to Nigeria.
A wonderful man you and I know God loves you more. Rest on bro."
"The day of my marriage you prayed for us like you were my father, I remember the day I asked you about your parents, and you told me "they are doing great, thank you" I also remember the last day I saw you in church. Brother femi, You were very strong and you fought really hard, but I won't cry too much cos you are in a place where God wanted you to be. You left a footprint that can never be wiped off, and I will never forget you. Rest well brother femi, we love you and we'll miss you."
Have a suggestion for us?
