|Let the memory of Okechuku be with us forever|
"It's our birthday today & you never told me how I was supposed to celebrate without you. As I sit here & whisper happy birthday I believe you can hear me. You were worth every single moment & we miss you dearly. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. May the angels sing to you the most joyous chorus of 'happy birthday today'."
"I join heaven in celebrating your first anniversary with the Lord....Evangelist Okey, today you are remembered for good! Memories of you bring joy to our hearts. You can never be forgotten!
Cheers Oga mi!"
"I remember and celebrate you, you are not forgotten. If birthdays are celebrated out there, have a blast."
"It's a painful way to say goodbye. Especially this early.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the entire family.
Our hearts are one during this time because we are one family. However, because Jesus lives we shall meet again soon.
Samuel Tomtania and Family
"It’s so painful, it hurts
It doesn’t feel real, but it’s true!
How we wish it is not; how we wish it’s a joke
You cry, you pray, you try to boldly confess
But the tears won’t stop, like water, it flows on
What a terrible blow, so, so difficult to bear
Thank God death is not the final act or we would grieve hopelessly
Evangelist Okey, you have gone ahead
To the new and better life we all hope for
In your usual way, so unannounced you went
Too sudden, too soon
How we shall miss you; your ever so passionate charge to us
We shall keep the flame ablaze until we see again someday
Adieu dear brother, sleep well in the bosom of your maker
The one you served so valiantly!
To your lovely wife and children: What can we say?
Words will fail to express our heartfelt wish to you at this time.
May the comforting arms of the Lord keep you.
By faith we declare: It is well with you dearest Sister!"
"I would like to send condolences to the friends and family of Mr. Ndukwe. Though I did not know him personally, I can tell from the heartwarming tributes that he was deeply loved, and will be sorely missed. Death is never an easy thing to cope with, and the feelings of pain, grief, and helplessness can at times seem overwhelming. I would like to share a thought that helped me when I dealt with the sting of death in my family. At John 5:28, 29 we read that soon "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." And at Isaiah 25:8 God promises that "He will swallow up death forever and...will wipe away the tears from all faces." Yes, take comfort in knowing that only does God eagerly yearn to resurrect our dead loved ones, he promises to get rid of death forever! If you would like to read more comforting thoughts from the scriptures, visit www.jw.org. May the fond memories you share bring you a measure of comfort during these difficult times."
Words are inadequate to express the void your absence has created within my heart with this reality.
Your humility knows no bound. Your love for Christ and family is unparalleled. We will miss you.
To Chinyere and the children, God is your strength and you will forever be in our prayers!
You have been such a good friend to me. Thank you for being here and praying for my grandmother's wakekeeping. I wish you were here with your family and staying with them. Bad things happen every second of the day. You never know what could happen anytime. Its a good thing that you love God so much. You are a man of God and he loves you so much. I know your family misses you so much and so will my family. But, always remember God loves you and we love you too. I will see you in heaven but for now we will all say our goodbyes.
Love always your beloved friend
""DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so"
Evangelist Okey I know that death did not take you but you are just sleeping in the Lord till we meet in eternity. You are such a gentle soul and God fearing human being. We love you but God loves you more. Adieu my dear brother."
"Continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord till we meet to part no more."
"Mon Pasteur, My friend. I still can't fathom how this is true. But I now know it is. I remember when we first met in Jubilee, you noticed I could speak French and we just clicked. From then, I have always called you Mon Pasteur. I celebrate your life today. I admired your passion for Christ. You had always wanted me to sing the song " Non, je ne mourrais pas, je vivrais." I always gave you excuses. Little did I know you were prophesying something big to come. Unfortunately, the day we planned on singing and dancing to this song together in church (February 8th), you decided to join us, but this time around, from heaven above. I don't doubt it one bit that you are Jesus now. All I can say is, thank you for a life well lived and for being a good ambassador of Christ here on earth. We love you.
REST ON TILL WE MEET AGAIN(for we sure will) , MON PASTEUR, MY FRIEND, OKAS.
""Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses." - (1 Timothy 6:12)
This then is the testimony of Evangelist Okey, big in stature and in his love for Christ, his family, his fellowship and his friends. Ever ready to preach the word in season and out of season. Lived his life as unto the Lord 24/7/365 in word and in deed.
We salute you Evangelist Okey for setting a fine example of Christian life, for finishing strong and obtaining the prize set before you. Sis. Florence, your kids and extended family we commit to the comforting arms of the One who created us all.
Sleep now dear Soldier of the cross until in glory we all shall meet again to part no more.
"May your soul rest in perfect peace."
"Evengelist Okey, words are inadequate to discuss how you will be greatly missed among your respective families; immediate, Jubilee, friends and others. Obviously, you served and you were faithful till the end in the things of God. Your wife and Children are here, so we still see you, but physically we will meet at the feet of our master Jesus. It is hard but God who is our creator knows the appropriate time to call each and everyone of us home. May He grant you eternal rest in Jesus Name. We continue to pray for Sister Florence and the Children that the Lord will send His angels to comfort them and the entire family.
On behalf of the Olalusi family."
"Evangelist Okechuku Ndukwe, words cannot express how shocked I was when I heard of your transition. It’s been said that it is not how long but how well. With your life I now know this is true. Since knowing you serving together under master Jesus you’ve been an inspirations to me as a true disciple of Jesus Christ with your teachable spirit. You are a straight talker who is ever ready to say sorry when you made mistake. Careful planner who knows when to back out when things are not going the way it was planned at the same time not afraid to admit your shortcomings. Though you left us too soon I salute master Jesus for an exemplary life you lived. It is our wish that you are still here but who can question the creator! We take solace in the fact that you are already resting at the feet of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, and we shall meet again to part no more. My prayer is that our God whom you serve faithfully will comfort and uphold your family especially sister Florence and the children. Shalom my brother, until we meet again (L'Hitraot)"
"Oh my goodness....It's been very difficult coming to terms with your demise, but who can question the creator. It was a pleasure meeting you, a pleausre knowing you and pleasure working side by side in the vineyard of the master. I know beyond a shadow of doubt that we shall meet again at the feet of Jesus. You will be missed dearly...but we still get to see you through Sis Florence and the Kids, so you cannot be forgotten. Rest Easy Evangelist Okey till me meet on the other side."
Have a suggestion for us?
