Nike Akande: “I can’t believe but this is reality. You’re so caring and so loving. Your life was to serve God and the souls of God but the time I had with you was fantastic, wonderful.

“I will never, never forget you till I close my eyes to see our Lord Jesus and till we meet again at the feet of Jesus.

“If it was possible to come again I would choose you again as my darling, my love, my soulmate, my friend, my life partner and husband again and again.
