Farewell to our brother-in-law
by Florence Otokito (Mrs, Nee Rapu)
God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not meant to be.
So he put his arms around you
And whispered 'Come to Me'.
With tearful eyes we watched you
As we saw you pass away.
Although we loved you deeply,
Your Golden Heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us.
He only takes the best.
Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Even though a loved one is gone,
Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart,
For as long as there is memory,
They'll live on in the heart.
Alex Chike Ijeh, you were all we could ask for in a son-in-law and a brother-in-law. It was a pleasure to be in your company; hence our late father, Ogbueshi Pius Nwokolo Rapu made sure you and his darling daughter, late Josephine Nwadiefe Ijeh (Nee Rapu) had a property very close to his compound. Now you have joined our beloved sister, daughter, mother and aunty in the bosom of the Lord.
You touched so many lives with your kindness, caring, loving and peaceful nature. You will surely be missed.
On behalf of our entire family here and abroad we wish you farewell. Rest in perfect peace.
