Read Joy Ajanaku’s tribute to her husband below
“I couldn’t imagine myself going through this. It’s like a dream that a loved one narrated to me which I renounced and detested the narrator but I have no choice than to accept as my fate.
I believe God has done the best for me. He doesn’t make a blunder. Even if He does, no one dare question Him because that’s why He is called unquestionable God. I only lost the mortal part of my greatest lover on earth, but his immortal part still lives in me.
I thought I will drop my mortal being before you but according to the popular saying ; man opposes but God disappears.
I wished I would lay down my life for you. I wish I was able to see that giant spirit called death at that point taking your body away and exchanged it with me. I so much miss your correction of love.
I miss how you do call me with your soft tender and sonorous voice. I now understand why he called me and christened me Joy.
Whenever I remember the day I first met him, unspeakable joy filled my heart.
Though I was a Christian by birth, I never knew what it takes to become a bonafide child of God until I met him. God really used him to transform my life beyond my expectation.”
