"Rest on Sister Titi,  we can never forget."

This tribute was added by Fabian Aleke on 25th November 2016

"Difficult as it is,
Painful in every sense still
Yet in love
I have to let go
On this side of the divide
For every single day
You will yet remain very dear to my heart
For never in my wildest imagination
Did it ever occur that the journey
Was to be shortlived

I will trudge on
In this journey of life
Depending absolutely on His grace
Not sure of what next
But rest assured His love
Will see me through all the way.

Rest on in His presence"

"Pastor Titi it's already one year since you made the glorious exit though it still feels like yesterday because your memories remain fresh in my heart. You are dearly missed though you are in a better place, you will forever live in my heart till we meet again."

This tribute was added by Fabian Aleke on 25th November 2015

"“Blessed are the dead, which die in the Lord … for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them.” I have learnt to cry no more. For why should I cry for one who beholds His everlasting presence where there are no more tears, pains nor troubles. As Chigo your youngest son said just two weeks ago: I cant cry for mummy. If you cry it means you do not love her. I marveled and know it’s God’s message. Yes we love you and will ever cherish those wonderful moments.

The only lingering pain is to come to terms that the life we shared is now all of history. It’s most difficult to accept even though it’s a reality. Thank God His presence will see us through as we look forward in hope that someday we will all by His GRACE be reunited to part no more."

"Titi my dear! Today, I remember you with fond memories of our UNIBEN CU days, as a dear younger sister, always cheerful, beaming with smiles. It still shocks, when it occurs to me that you have transited. You are surely missed but your good memory lingers on."

"One year gone by already, almost unbelievable. What more can I say? Rest on."

"I remembered your smile the day before your birthday and it made me smile. It hurts over here but then we know you are still all smiles over there, probably thinking if only these people know how glad you are to be resting. Peace loving Sister Titi, continue to rest in the bossom of our Lord."

This tribute was added by Nwanna Joel-Ezeugo on 7th August 2015

"Once again, the tears have started flowing. I wished the consoling words we have heard over and over from Pastor Fabian could stop them but to no avail. How can I forget a selfless daughter of God who even at her inconvenience, seeks for the comfort of all. Her target for me remained the unity in all families - husband/wife and parents/children. I will forever miss you and please enjoy today especially in HEAVEN as you had looked forward and planned a precious and unique way of spending this day. Mummy "T", happy birthday."

"Resting in the Lord Woman of God. Memories of Titi are good. Didun didun ni iranti Olododo.  Gods' continual comfort to her entire family."

This tribute was added by Fabian Aleke on 7th August 2015

"In my dreams early this morning, I looked up from the bed to see birthday cards hung on the ceiling above. I turned on the bed to ask what that meant and then remembered. As I woke up with tears on my eyes I remembered that today is that day you had longed for and prayed to see. Today would have been your 50th birthday.You had all already planned out for an outreach for the Teens. But at last you are no more on this side of the divide.

The boys and I thank God for the privilege to have been part of your life here on earth. We remain grateful you passed the ultimate exams of life here and believe God you made it to His bosom. That is the greatest consolation that puts to silence every question and puzzles in our hearts;  every wishes of what could have been. You (and we) have only lost what could have been in this temporal world and you have exchanged that with what is eternal.

It is my prayers that His grace will enable us win this ultimate battle also.

T I will always love you all the way the same way you loved me. I will ever cherish you till my last breath."

This tribute was added by Temi O on 7th August 2015

"Dear Sis Titi,
I will always remember how you and Pastor Fabian would drive all the way from Ajah to Mowe to speak with my husband and myself during some challenging times. We are doing well now to the glory of God. If there was someone I knew who loved and was devoted to God, it was you. I remember the times I was your younger partner in the teen Sunday school class, it was easy to see how you flowed with the teens. I have met many Pastor's wives in my lifetime and will always remember you as the one who was true to her calling in God. Rest on my sis. See you when our Lord comes to take us all home."

"Pastor Titi, though you are not physically here but you spirit still lives on because your GOOD WORKS are still alive."

This tribute was added by Fabian Aleke on 24th December 2014

"Dear Sister Titi,I write this tribute with fondest thoughts of you as a warrior of Christ,a woman of great faith, a woman of valour and a person of great love in her heart and passion for making impact in her generation.I remember that when God gave me grace to be with you and my brother several times in the hospital in Dubai, what your heart cry was to get well so that you could celebrate your 50th birthday with a big outreach to the youths. Mama ewe (mother of youths),the young people will surely miss you.
You fought  and held on to life to the end, ever confessing and trusting God that you will live and not die but if the One who has the final say about life called you to His bossom because He loves you and knows better than we do,who are we to query Him?
Darling sister,rest in His bossom.We will miss you as friends of your family and of the ministry but we are comforted knowing that we will yet meet on resurrection morning to part no more for ever.Adieu!!! Pastor Debo Daniel"

This tribute was added by Fabian Aleke on 17th December 2014

"A precious one from us is gone. A voice we love is still. A place is vacant in our hearts that no one can fill. Pastor Titi you impacted my life physically and spiritually. You sat me down and taught me what true worship is and what it is not. You told me to look beyond my natural talent and go to school and that has made me an undergraduate of University of Lagos. The impact you made in my life even in Berachah Choir will always be remembered. Servant of the Lord well done. Our prayers is, God give us the grace to finish well like you did. AMEN. OBIOMA DAVID"

"I remember Titi from our Queens' School Ibadan days. She was quiet, friendly and always had a smile for everyone. I particularly remember her as being very brilliant in Maths and the Sciences. Though our paths never crossed again, it's quite shocking to learn of her untimely passing at such a young age.The Lord knows best. May God Almighty comfort her family, siblings and mum and all who are mourning her. May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace."

"Mummy T. – MY BOSS LIVES!

It is so difficult to write tribute for you my boss,
I never expected that it will come to this.
We were expecting you back to your mighty men - the teenagers.
But Oh!  My boss is gone!

Exactly 1year & 8months ago we started the teen’s church,
In all-
Your vision, we shared.
Your Ideas, kept us going.
Your methods, kept us moving.
Your love for the teens kept us coming,
Your leadership style kept us pushing.
But my boss today is gone

My boss full of love; today is gone!
Gone to where she has always wanted to be
Gone to where she taught the teens to be.
We planned to celebrate your recovery
& we still rejoice that your toil & pain is gone.
Though we won’t see you in VBS again.
Though we won’t see you again in the teen’s church.
We know that yours now is rest and peace.
And for where you are now, I Uncle K as you call me
Envy’s your new address.
My boss is gone yet she lives
Adieu! Goodnight yet good morning!"

"Though I saw you last in 1982, I remember your smile, gentle spirit and the conviction with which you voiced your opinions. I remember your brilliance and empathy. Reading the tributes from other people you met as you journeyed through, it is obvious and not surprising that you left your mark and impacted many lives. I can only pray that God's peace will abide with the loved ones that you left behind. Continue to rest  in the bosom of  the Lord ."

This tribute was added by Funlola Alabi on 7th December 2014

"Titi, I still remember you vividly from our high school days, even back then we called you "effico" because you were so efficient in everything you did. The testimonials on this page go to show you remained the same; efficient, passionate about your beliefs and always willing to help. I pray that God be with and comfort the family you left behind. Our paths never crossed after QSI, now it is goodnight till resurrection day. Keep resting Titi, in the bosom of your King. It is well. - Funlola Falobi, QSI class of 1982."

"Your departure is a great pain to us. You have truly been a daughter to us and we will surely miss your absence. The great God who knows all things knows why He has to take you home and we know it has been your desire to be where Jesus is, and we know you are there with Him. I remember how you used to come to the house, and ask me a lot of questions. There are too many things to talk about but you have always seen us as parents. The last thing you said to me Was "mummy you have been a mother to us when we were single, and now that we are married you are still a mother to us." Our desire is that we will definitely meet on that glorious day."

This tribute was added by Nefi Amosu on 7th December 2014

"I never dreamt the day I saw you would be the last time I would talk with you, smile with you, hug you, pray with you. I know God had His plans for you and this was no surprise to Him. You left your mark, you've fought the good fight of faith. You've gone to rest. You will always be part of my fond memories as you were part of our home in Satellite Town. I will miss you."

"It was with great shock that I received the news of the passing away to glory of my sister who I have not seen since our Christian Union days at the University of Benin. I thank God that you kept the faith, you not only continued in the doctrine of our Lord Jesus Christ, you taught many the strait and narrow way. You will always remain in our memories. You represented us well. You are our seed that has gone before us. Rest now my dear until we meet on the other side to part no more. God will give your family the fortitude to bear your absence. Adieu! Adieu!! Adieu!!!"

She knew how to reach out to teenagers and she was also patient with us. She would be greatly missed. Repose en paix."

"Mommy Titi

As I write this tribute I thought to myself, what is the purpose of man on earth? I couldn't get a better answer but to think of the godly life you lived. The numerous life you touched and affected in somany positive ways. You stood by my family and I during our darkest moments. How can I forget how you took care of us? How can I forget how soft spoken you were? How can I forget your angelic voice when you sing, especially your Christmas songs during Carols.
I remember the days I had to summarise your Sunday messages, how much you made my work easy because of the unambiguous and direct way you taught and explained the word of God to the understanding of everyone.
Mommy I will miss you so much, so much that I can't put in words. Of course I love you, we all love you, but we can't love you more than your creator, the only one who holds your life, the one who sees the end from the beginning, the one who has called you home to be with Him.
The legacy you left behind will never die, the many souls you flooded the Kingdom of God with will continue to bear fruits and not wither.
When I think of your departure nothing consoles me more than the hope of eternal life. Life is indeed short!!!

Love you so much mommy Titi."

A long time ago
On a certain day,
A hero was born
On a beautiful day,
Look into her eyes,
There’s a smile of hope,
And you’ll realize,
She was destined to win.

What a beautiful woman
That she turns out to be,
Touching lives in her own little way,
A woman of faith,
The teens are saying,
“A beautiful woman,
What a hero you are”.

Walking through the storm,
She never gives up,
She held on to the faith,
To every word God had saith,
With the songs of praise,
She pulled down the gates,
Now singing songs of praise,
In the arms of the Lord!"

This tribute was added by Gladys Ogbonna on 5th December 2014

"I saw you occasionally, I have always admired you from afar. Each time I see you three things are evident; the way you walk elegantly with extraordinary dignity and poise, your love for God and everything that pertains to Him, together with His overflowing glory surrounding you and connecting the likes of us to the Kingdom. Though I was unable to let you know while you were with us, but I know somehow heaven is smiling right now over your good works on earth. You are one of the women in the ministry that has imparted me in your little way. Keep praying for us if you can where you are now, till we meet to part no more. Farewell...."

"Dearest Sis T,
I met you in year 2000 just before I got married to your younger brother. Since you lived in Lagos, you were the first member of the Omotoso family I met. What a great ambassador you were. Your simplicity and hospitality blew me away.  Gbengula (as you fondly called your brother) and I always looked forward to the Sunday lunches at your home in Festac and later in Ajah.
It is overwhelming for us to comprehend your departure to glory, but who are we to question God; in all things we can only give thanks. So to God be the glory for great things you have achieved through Christ and fulfilling your destiny. I am grateful to God for the opportunity to have met you. I pray that God will grant Pastor Chidi, your lovely children and all the Omotoso family the grace to bear the painfull loss.
You lived, fought the good fight of faith and finished well.
Till we meet to part no more at the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Adieu my dear sister.
Deola Omotoso"

He also gave you time for the preparation to come home. The bride of the Lord now seeing Him face to face. This is real. heaven is real. Tears in my eyes. Blessed are the dead in Christ. Beloved of God,you rest and there remains  rest for us. We'll meet again to no more say goodbye."

ANOTHER SAINT HAS GONE HOME! WHY THIS IS SO PAINFUL IS THE SUFFERING YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH BEFORE YOU LEFT US! We will surely miss your noble smiles, your Elegant Poise and Carriage, which you had with so much grace. Your wealth of wisdom, transparent, deep and fervent love for the Master, your undeniable faith, exemplary hospitality, proven character and integrity will be truly missed. You were indeed a strong pillar to your hubby and The Church. Certainly he and your children will miss you so much. Till that Resurrection morning when we shall meet again to part no more. Adieu! Take your rest in the bosom of Abraham, Amen!"

Deputy Director of Education

As a Teacher Trainee, I imagined the portrait of the ideal teacher:
One who cares for the good of children, the greater good of the nation.
Who stoops to nurture them to maturity and greatness.
Sensitive to their pitfalls and eager to stand tall to be counted among child-friendly elect integrity.
Titi, you proved yourself an epitome of the ideal Teacher, an archetypal educator and a symbol of the noble profession.
The PKC once put the question: ‘who have you mentored to succeed you as ICT Head?’ I said ‘there is the anointed one; Mrs Titi Aleke’. As the Head of ICT, you were the pride of all.
One of the mysterious tragedies of creation has completed yet another full course in our life time: that as real as you are to me and many others, in truth, we will never meet on earth again.
Rest in perfect peace."

Our boss was an extremely hard worker; she did her job in a very professional manner. She was known for discipline, diligence, dedication, strength, self-confidence, focus, efficiency, hard work and her passion for the job.
She was in a haste to achieve much for King’s College. We in ICT department – King’s College will miss her greatly. Her impact will continue to be felt by KC (ICT). She was always the first person to open the ICT office every day. She liked working; work fascinated her. She was God fearing; she was very good in giving. She always levelled the balance of our financial contributions in the department.
Farewell, our dear HOD, (Main Campus / Annex)
From ICT Department"

Vice Principal(Special Duties) Main Campus
King’s College, Lagos

It is with great sadness and grief that I received on the 25th of November, 2014, the shocking news of the transition to glory of Mrs. TitiAleke.
I met her for the first time when she was posted to King’s College, Lagos from the Federal Government College,  Ijanikin to teach Mathematics.
Some of the qualities that endeared me to her, were her zeal, love, commitment and dedication to duty.During my interaction with her, Idiscovered other attributes which include the love she had for the things of God and the fear of the Lord. I also found her to be amiable and trustworthy.
She was always punctual at work; arriving the College very early.
My wife, (that is what I use to call her)I take solace in the fact that you served God and humanity with all your heart;  giving your best in wisdom, knowledge, talent and time to teach other people’s children Mathematics and to preach the Gospel of Salvation to all. You gave all to mould lives and did a good job of it because of the lives you touched.
You have run the good race, you have done your bit well. I have no doubt in my mind that you have gone to be with the Lord .
Yourchildren, husband, siblings, students, friends and all the lives you touched will miss you.  I will miss you. But God loves youmore.
Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord.

"TRIBUTE BY Mrs. O.A. Ademoyewa (KC. Lagos)

I knew the situation was not good but I held on to Jesus for divine intervention. He finally healed you but in His own way. He preferred to have you with him.
I believe God planned it for you to go back home at the time you did because nothing is greater than His power. He only gave you time to prepare for the journey back home.
I will miss you greatly but I surrender to the will of God.
You were a good friend. You believed in me. You trusted me. You loved me. You were a sister indeed.
You were respected, loved and trusted by colleagues and students. We wish there was something we could do.
Sleep on beloved in the bossom of our Lord Jesus where there is peace and no pains.
Adieu Mrs Titi Aleke"

"ADIEU, FARE THEE WELL. By Mrs. Comfort Uduehi
Deputy Director (Rtd, colleague at Kings College)

Mrs. Titi Akeke (Nee: Omotosho), a God fearing woman who stood for excellence. She was a devoted and an outstanding Mathematics teacher, who always went the extra mile to ensure proper nurturing of the students under her care. She left no stone unturned at ensuring maintenance of the stipulated standards. She displayed the strength of character worthy of emulation.
A highly promising officer who no doubt had a lot to offer humanity, but alas the Almighty, All knowing God chose to call you home early.
A versatile, intelligent, honest, confident, calm, punctual, cheerful, dutiful, bold and a beautiful gem to behold. In the over two decades I knew you, I was your secret admirer.
She was a role model to many and indeed a great vacuum has been created by your exit.
I pray the Lord would comfort the hearts of your loved ones and grant you eternal rest in his bosom in Jesus Name, Amen."

By Pastor GOC Umeaka
On Behalf of Berachah Family

The death of Pastor Titi Aleke came to us as a shock because it came when we are already rejoicing that she had survived the sickness that threatened her life in the last few months.  Our hearts were lifted once more when Pastor (Dr) Chinedu Oranye testified of the improvement in her health when he visited her in Dubai and he led us in a prayer of thanksgiving thereafter. When she came back from Dubai there was actually visible improvement.

Just a few days later we suddenly heard she relapsed and transited to Glory.  Although it was a painful loss to us, her husband and the family, we at Berachah have come to accept her death as the Sovereign will of God and we are not mourning but expressing our gratitude to God for the life of commitment to God she lived.  

Her death poses a challenge to us in three ways. First, It is a testing of our faith on what we believe and preach that physical death is not the end of life for a believer.  We wholly submit to the Will of God concerning her death like St. Paul said that whether death or life he was not moved.  Absence from this trouble-filled world is present with the Lord Jesus in heaven with all the goodies described in Rev 21. Thus, we believe that whether we are alive or dead, we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.  Another challenge her death posed to us is a call for life of unalloyed commitment to God and the Ministry for which Pastor Titi stood for in her life time. Dr. Bonar’s song “Only be remembered for what we have done” readily reminds us of this challenge as Berachah family.  Pastor Titi was so passionate about the Ministry to the teenage and she fought with all her strength to secure approval of the church leadership to establish a separate Sunday church service for the teenage group, which was eventually granted.

Her vacation Bible School (VBS) had already become well known by churches within Ajah and the environs as a yearly ritual that attracted dozens of teenagers from our catchment area.  The challenge I have thrown to all of us at Berachah and the Men Alive in particular is how shall we be remembered when we are no more in this side of the divide?  What footprints shall we live behind that can stand the test of eternal value.  Thirdly, the last challenge her exit posed to Berachah family is who will step into her shoes to sustain the Ministry to the teens? God knows.

Our joy is that Pastor Titi was in a hurry to fulfil her Ministry to the teenagers and definitely the lives she touched will stand as a reminder that she came, she saw and she conquered for Christ and for eternity.  We also take solace in the fact that she lives on, joyfully waiting for when we will all join her and the saints triumphant in heaven to eternally be with the Lord.

Adieu Pastor T as some of us fondly call her.  We at Berachah will dearly miss her.  
Till we meet again it is well as the power of death has been broken over her life.
Rest Peacefully in the Bosom of Our Father."

"TRIBUTE TO PASTOR TITI ALEKE BY Oluyide and Austen C. Ukachi, Senior Pastors,  HAC

Dr Horatius Bonar's (1808-1889) classic song titled, ONLY REMEMBERED resonates whenever we lose a dear one to the chilling hands of death.

When the hands of death has taken its toll on us, the one thing that lingers in the memory of those we leave behind is our good works.

Our dear sister, mother and Pastor, Titi Aleke will be missed and remembered for her different roles and works both at her home, the Church and workplace.

When she joined He's Alive Chapel, she played her role as a member of the choir and children's teacher.
As a single lady, she comported herself decently before she got married to Fabian,
As a housewife, she was a true, lovely wife and mother who took care of her immediate family. Not all house wives are cheerful at receiving uninvited guests, but Titi was an exception. She always welcomed guests to her home warmly and with lots of smiles.
She was a mother to the Badore Church and the entire HAC family.
She was a lover of children. She loved the youths, her annual summer holiday programme where she invited me to speak yearly revealed her passion for the youths. The youths will really miss her. No doubt her students at Kings College, LAGOS will miss her too.

She ran the race well, and has handed the baton, she has left the track for us to continue in the relay race. We shall all miss our sister, Titi. Adieu, our beloved sister."

we all will miss your love, care, commitment, sacrifice, understanding, listening ears, corrections, commendations, selflessness, smile, and encouragement. You believed in every young person’s ability to be outstanding in life and showed it in the most unique way I have ever known.
Thank you for obeying God when you started the VBS (now Teens & Twenties). You graced us with the beauty of your personality and poured yourself out as a drink for all who came in contact with you.
We rest in the assurance that you have gone to a better place and look forward to that day in glory when we will meet again.
We are determined to continue working with these young people.

Rest in God’s Love.

My darling sister who will fondly call me Bumsy was indeed a rare gem.  I and my other siblings are blessed that God made Titilope one of us. How do we pay tribute to someone who touched so many lives even in the relatively short period she was destined to be here with us. God indeed wonderfully and beautifully created her. The comments people have made about my sister on social media speak volume of her humility,kindness, loyalty, selflessness and above all her dedication to God Almighty
Our growing up together was wonderful.  My sister would do every chore in the house as if she was expecting to win an award for it. She was so meticulous in everything she did. At home she was a model child and at school she was very brilliant.
My sister was very passionate about her faith. Having a sincere and special relationship with God meant the whole world to her. I now understand why she had established an unshakable relationship with God even from a very tender age. I remember her saying to me,” bumsy we have to be ready and prepared for God at any time and at any given place” . Her ordination as a pastor in the church never came to me as a surprise.
Titi, your death is the most heartfelt pain one could ever imagine. When you were in hospital in Dubai and I visited you, you gave me so much inspiration, you kept saying that God had saved you. You would ask your husband and I to sing songs of praise and thanksgiving even in the midst of the pain you were going through. The shock I had when brother Femi gave me the sad news of your passing over the phone was indescribable.  You had been through worse times during the course of your illness and to think that you passed on when you were a lot better and had been discharged from hospital drives home the fact our loving God is indeed a mysterious God and his ways are not ours. To even think that we had a chat over the phone the day before you passed drives home the reality of Gods awesomeness. Looking at your passing with a sense of spirituality it turns out that you have indeed been saved even though sadly you are no longer with us.
We fondly remember and miss you darling sister,  wonderful daughter, loving wife, adoring mother and a gem of a sister. We love you the same as if you were still here with us. We thank God for your worthwhile life and we now understand why God will want such a beautiful angel on his side from now till eternity.
I am consoled in the fact that your journey in this world has bore fruit of salvation and all who truly knew you are confident that you are in a better place. Thanks be to GOD!

"With heavy heart I leave this tribute to a woman of the highest pedigree !
I probably saw you last in 1975, but always had you and your family on my mind ! Your mother helped make me into the man I am today and your brothers were amongst those I call brothers and as such I feel their ache ! From all I have read you spent your life well and marks left by you are not a surprise to me ! I pray that your Mum, siblings, Husband and children will be given the grace and fortitude to bear your loss.
Rest in peace and may the good Lord bless your departed soul"

"Sis. TITI LIVES ON!-                    By Chiny & AnayoChukwu Onwuka
  Snr. Pastors Kingdom Life Victory Church
  Calgary, Canada

It looked like just another Sunday morning and Sunday service, that day in He's Alive Chapel (HAC) Lagos.  Until this song rang out from the altar: "Jesus! Oh Sweet Jesus! How I love, calling Your Name! .....Jesus! Sweet Jesus! Every day, Your Name is the Same!". Same familiar song, but sung in a way we had never heard before! By one we had never seen before! Who was that? "Sis Titi". That's how being new to HAC, introduced & endeared herself to most of us. In 1993.

That picture of her at the altar 21yrs ago, belting out that song with that angelic voice, graceful smile and worshipful anointing, is still
embedded in our hearts. Sis.Titi left us too early in the physical to transition to heaven, and we indeed mourn and continue to shed many tears.
But the sadness & tears don't last long, as, soon enough, that picture of smiling, laughing, singing Titi comes up, causing us to smile too; breaking the tears, to bless The Lord with gladness for her life & love, instead! She lives in our hearts still! She touched our lives and many others! And we choose to bless The Lord in celebration of her life, her ministry, her fruits, her legacy!

We were privileged to see and enjoy her hospitality last December. And choose to relish that last opportunity, though we didn't know it
then, to, as it were, say our goodbyes here on earth, to our ebony-black beautiful, loving sister & friend.
Because Jesus lives, Sis. Titi lives also! Because Pastor Fabian, Arinze, her other children (spiritual & temporal), other families and friends live, Sis. Titi lives, also!  In these we choose to receive comfort and strength, and from our Lord, TheComforter & Almighty. Day by day, moment by moment! And choose to honour your memory in doing what you did well and would like us to do well: Love & Worship The Lord still; serve Him & His Church with love and gladness, still Adieu our Beloved! "

"Dear Pastor Titi,
I knew you for a short while and i wish we had more time. The first time i saw you was when you visited us after i had my daughter. I remember how you and Pastor Fabian sat with us, talked with us and dined with us. You were both so humble without any airs. i remember your gentle smile as we exchanged stories. After that meeting you would always call and encourage me. i also remember the last time we spoke, you sat behind me in church i would have never guessed you were sick because as always you asked how i was in your usual gentle and caring way. i remember your wise and unhurried counsel. i know you would be missed by your boys(who are absolutely amazing) and the church and i pray you rest in the bosom of our Lord and Master Jesus ma you are home.""

I first met you in Church sometime early 1993. You were standing at the entrance of the Church and I walked up to get to meet you as I would do of a new face in church. Then I met you on my knees in prayers well past midnight in one of the rooms in ECWA Guest House in Jos. I had desperately been praying for a life partner and I was jolted when God told me you were the one. My protests were drowned by the clear, distinct and gentle voice of the Lord. I hardly knew you but was in for another shock when I finally broached the matter with you that you already knew I was the one. God had spoken in same manner to you right at ever busy Mile 2 in Lagos. You accepted my proposal on the spot which was not in sync with times then.
Our relationship in courtship and early marriage was so stormy as we appeared not really meant for one another. The only thin thread that kept us going was the maturity and assurance that it was God’s will. Your childhood and upbringing (aje butter as we joked) was in contrast to mine (aje pako). You grew up in the City while I was in the village and never even saw a TV till I was over 8 years. You desired a romantic husband but here was one who felt too holy to even hold your hands and took you to Redemption Camp for retreat in place of honeymoon. Till the very end you ate your food and tea steaming hot. I preferred mine cold. You could give out our very last which my Ibo sense found difficult to take. When I came back annoyed by others you quickly rose up in their defense and my only consolation was to retort back that you were just naïve. I can’t ever forget the occasion when I took our last funds to undertake a ministry trip leaving you behind to take care of the children by faith. God was to honor us by sending a flat screen TV you had so desired. One key that helped us was when God made me understand He sent you into my life to give me a balance.  
You loved me with a great passion until the very end. I will ever remember how in the midst of your pain you will suddenly call me and say “Chidi I love you with all my heart and thank you for taking care of me”. You always wanted to be with me and I will protest that you should not make me your handbag. You believed so much and thought I should have answers to all your questions. I remain grateful for your support in the ministry. We were of same mind always. You gave me the liberty to relate with the opposite sex and would even enquire whether you were welcome if you entered the office and met me with one of my girl friends as you called them. You didn’t mind when I received calls after midnight from one of them. Thank God by His grace I kept my marital vows to you till the very end.
Six years ago a great power from above visited you. You began to spend your nights groaning and travailing in prayers. This was the prelude to the VBS and when Teenagers began to gather from everywhere I knew the secret. A great burden for ministry overtook you and if I had consented you would have retired for full time ministry. You longed to reach every teenager you met and to go to the ends of the earth with the Gospel. Little did I know that your light was burning so bright because it will burn out soon.
I wish I knew that time was up then I would have enjoyed your fellowship more before you left. The suddenness of the parting hurts badly. The pains and unyielding faith you had make me cry uncontrollably. Who will knot my ties or do I begin now to learn how to. Never knew you could leave your honey behind; your one and only Chidi. I take consolation the Lord showed you clearly that the devil lost the battle over your life. I pledge to continue and uphold the vision we shared together and I know by God’s grace you will be proud of all the boys in your house which includes me. Good night the wife of my youth, my wife of inestimable value. To say I will miss you is an understatement."

Titi dearest,
I never knew I will have to do this so soon when the sun set at noon.
Your humble self, Obele and myself hit it off on a good note as teenage/youthful friends way back at the University of Benin. You were quite open, sincere and a practical Christian. We were all quite supportive and caring towards one another in times of weakness and strength. I thank God you were able to fulfill your dreams of teaching Children and showing forth the way of righteousness in your family, Church of God and in your secular work.
You lived a sacrificial life showing the love of God to others. I remembered some of the last words you spoke to me that you were holding unto God, which you did to the very end. You have played your part and finished your race .Thank God, you fought a good fight, you were strong till the end.
Take your well deserved rest in the bosom of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Good night dear Sister, we shall see in the resurrection morning."

"Pst Arinola Titi Aleke, I know we all have to go one day but you are somebody I never imagine will leave so soon. Full of life, bubbling like the teenagers that you were mentoring, coming down to anybody and everybody's level to preach the gospel. Caring about every little thing that concerns us, women under you. I remember to the extent you went to get me a maid so that I can be coming for women meetings, how you kept visiting my house when my mother -in law was around for treatment almost every Sunday and so many instances that will make it impossible to forget you, Arinola Aleke, but with revelations, am consoled with the fact that you are with God. Eyin to fi sile ko ni daru, adieu."

"I saw this in school on Sunday morning and my heart skipped. It skipped with thoughts in my heart reminiscing the first time I met Mummy Titi and Pastor Fabian in 2004. I remembered the first  teenage meeting at that building where the Church was first located. Her smile rekindled Hope in our hearts as teenagers. I keep a lot of Mummy's in my life as a growing young man, But mummy Titi thought me HOPE, she was the first person to explain HOPE to me even  If I never understood what it meant then, as I'm still learning, from the days of vacation Bible School where we all gathered as adolescence asking nasty questions, never understanding what we were saying to the days we grew  into youth, we silently stood by watching if she'll ever stop expelling hope to other people like she did to us but instead we saw Desire in her blazing hot transmitting to the depth of our hearths. in all her trials, weaknesses, and agony, she never failed to  give hope to us. Today, I say, my only pain was that I never told her I loved her. I remember her saying after the last vacation bible school last year that she was grateful to God that the program held. My maternal mother thought me Sacrifice, Mummy Titi thought Me Hope, not just the hope that see's problems and run away from it But the Hope that faces challenges, I can't forget my first experience with her when I saw the efficacy of the Name Of Jesus.
Mummy Titi, I've chosen a long time ago to give others the kind of  hope you gave us(Jesus)."

""Sister Titi, in the 10 years that I knew you, you were a positive influence on my life, punctuality was your trade mark as you never came late for any meeting.. You had so much passion for teenagers and you did a lot to point them in the right direction . In you I had a leader who was very passionate about the things she believed in and ready to do all that was possible and right to get it.There is so much that I want to say but I cannot seem to pen them down I will surely miss you, may God continue watch over your "boys"""
