"Let’s not be sad today, but celebrate his life with the memory he left behind. Ken is free from the shackles of death, and I know he is in heaven smiling down. One of the hardest things to do in life is to say goodbye to a loved one forever, and nothing ever breaks a heart like the lost of a loved one, or can mend a heart like the love of a loved one.
When I was younger, I lived with my brother Ken in Miami, he would wake me each morning and ask "what are your goals and objective?" before I could say a word, I always thought he had nothing else better to do, until I got tired and had one written and placed on his bedroom wall.Ken was quiet and reserved, he's the kind of guy that calls you up when he dreams about you or feels something is not right, with me he always called to keep me in check, and if you did not hear from Ken that is because you are just fine (she laughs).
He was also, a fighter, who taught me that failure is a prerequisite for success, and set backs are time out that don’t last, but happiness is one thing that can never be compromised. He was my greatest cheerleader, and supporter. Ken was not much of a picture person, but he sure knows how to put a smile on your face. I thank God for the 50 years, he spent with us here on earth. I wish you could have stayed much longer, the days are much longer without you. When you were on your journey home, we both knew it.
I remember you look on your face when you said why are you crying, "let God's will be done". Although, you hanged on to life, earth was no longer a place you wanted to be, but had the angels waiting and when you finally left, your looks changed and immediately, a dark cloud appeared with strong wind, thunderstorms and heavy rainfall. It felt like the end of the word, and suddenly the rain stopped, as I looked up into the sky, the dark cloud disappeared.
You may not be a public figure, known around the world or a celebrity, but heaven sure shook the earth to welcome you. I thank you for holding on a little while, to prepare me for this day that death is not the end. You have come to show that love does goes on. In flowers your love will blossom, in rainbow your love will shine always. Some people watch history, some people make history, but you created history with the difference you have made on earth.
Farewell, Brother K, your life with us here on earth will always be remembered, and memories we share will never to be forgotten"
"My deepest sympathies go out to you, Aisha, and your family. May God give you the peace that you seek. May my condolences bring you comfort and may our prayers ease the pain of this loss."
""Ken, there is no goodbyes for us .wherever you are , you will always be in my thoughts and prayers..My heart goes out to the entire family, especially to my lovely Emily."
"The Heavens welcome you home with open arms. Rest in the bosom of God Almighty."
"Kenny, my brother. Your passing has thought me to allways seize the moment. Never take for granted the the seconds, minutes, and hours of every day They are not forever, we all have our expiry date. Bless up mi breda. https://youtu.be/5KVqvWDv7HE"
Our hearts are heavy and words are few and inadequate to express our deepest thoughts. The memories you leave behind, of friendship, kindness and gentleness are memories that we will always cherish.
Our prayer is simple..... May God bless and keep you in His care."
"Ken, rest peacefully in the house of the Lord where there is no pain and suffering. I pray that God give your family strength of faith to bear your absence."
"Ken, I am saddened that you left us so soon. I remember the memories we shared together in Miami. You called me "Fraco" We cannot understand why God called you so soon, but I am sure he did for a reason. Rest in peace bro.."
"Where do I begin? how do I put my pain in words? I cannot find the words to share my void, my pain and my shock. In my pain and tears, I kept on denying your demise from earth but then knowing you are heaven bound became my consolation. Life will never be the same without you. I will always speak of you in the presence because you are in heaven watching over us. Asking: are you treating others like you would like to be treated, are you showing enough love towards each other and reminding us all not to take anything for granted and be grateful to God for all even if it is inconvenient.?
You are a very kind person who holds the love of God in your heart. You define and represent peace. You are the one who löoks and without asking you know what the line of thought is. Your words are few but profound. You had no hate in your heart because your principle is this: God loves us even when we do not deserve it and why should we not follow in his foot steps?
You are a careful thinker and never given to frivolities. You love the word of God and holds the bible as your guide.
In your battle with liver cancer, you stayed brave always quoting the bible and your famous words 'it is in God's hands now'.Saying if it is God's will, none of us can stop it.
You are a man of faith, a kind and loving father, the most humble brother I know. You would rather pray and ask God's opinion of anything than rely on your strength.
We have learned a lot of life's valuable lesson from you . You wll forever live on. I am so proud of you. I know I am not alone in this."
"If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you back home. I just wish I could explain it to my heart that you are gone, but I can't. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to see you again, for your love knows no boundaries, and no distance. The truth is, you had so much to live for, and fought the good fight of faith, but death is inevitable to everyone. There will never be another big brother like you, so it hurts really bad. Adeus brother Kenneth Okojie. Rest in Perfect Peace. God knows best."
"It's sad to know that you are gone but solace is that you are resting in the Lord's bosom.Adieu Ken."
