|Let the memory of isaac be with us forever|
"Isaac was known to me independent of his brother Mike whom I had been a long standing Christian brother and friend. In the SU circles then in Benin he proved to dependable and handy brother who could be trusted with responsibilities. His quiet and assuring confidence in times of stress is worthy of note. His firm and reassuring stand on Christian standards leaves no one in doubt of His faith in Jesus which manifested in his duty post. Isaac you trip to heaven yes we acknowledge with thanks and praise to God however leaves a void."
"An Epitome of Integrity
A Role Model,
A Father, A Mentor,
A Teacher, A Coach,
So pathetic that u left when u are to enjoy d fruit"
"Ite Baba as you are fondly called by all loved ones. So so sad you left this World when we all believed its time to rest after you have dedicated your time to the service of your fatherland. God knows best . What we will all miss is your candid,fatherly advice. May Your Soul Rest in Perfect Peace. Amen"
"I write this tribute in anticipation that it gets to you , my friend Isaac Itegboje. For you have joined the cloud of witnesses.
You are trusted and trustworthy friend dear to miss, my brother Isaac;
I know you would not want me to sorrow like an unbeliever; for you put your trust in the Resurrection and life, even our Lord Jesus Christ.
However, we mourn in hope to be comforted by the Holy Spirit;
We know you are now comforted and refreshed in God's Presence;
For you often refreshed me and others; you have comforted quite many;
You have been a fellow pilgrim pleasant to travel with; You often capture pictures of fellow pilgrims to share memoirs in retrospect.
Now, you have a broader view of our on going journey.
Your love covers offences; for you know God's forgiveness.
Since you became my friend, you did not give up on me as you consistently be-friend others.
You are a constant friend all the times.
Thank you for your friendship worth my memoir for life;
Sweet is your memory; keep on sleeping, dear friend till we meet in sleep or when we wake up together.
From your friends: Oriyomi A. Oladeji & Adenike F. Oladeji (retired General Director, Scripture Union, Nigeria)"
"Mr Isaac Itegboje was an easy going man. When some are panicking and worried, his countenance is always calm and peaceful. He was a man of peace. We never thought you can leave so soon. We miss you. Rest in the bosom of the Lord."
"Isaac, my double brother, both biologically and through the second birth we both experienced in Christ Jesus. It is like yesterday when we played and danced together, cried together and walked and ran the streets of Auchi together and missed each other each time I went away to stay with our elder brother. Those were the years when we were boys. We were three then Olorunsola you and I. I remember those days when the three of us would walk to our School All Saints Anglican School Auchi . How can I forget the vacations we spent together when you worked at Auchi Polytechnic. Yes, when we prayed and chatted most times far into the night, discussing issues of life. Then life separated us as we had to face the homes and jobs God gave us. we had our quarrels and differences . But we were ever so eager to settle and move on with life. Our meetings before you finally moved to Lagos. However each meeting was joyful and refreshing though far and in between as time and space would permit. Our last year together was exciting and memorable . You stood by me through thick and thin. Yes you were my double brother and friend. God gave us to each other. Am glad you are with Jesus who died on the cross for our sins and rose again to give us life. i rejoice because you are with Jesus Christ admiring the grandiose mansions and walking the streets of gold , hand in hand with Jesus. Certainly we will meet again when God finally takes me home at his fulness of time. meanwhile i will miss you and all that you stood for. I will always cherish the fact that you were my double brother and friend"
