Akinfeleye remembers wife, one year after

In a moving and emotion-laden elegy, the renowned communication scholar, Professor Ralph Akinfeleye, has remembered his late wife, Mrs Carol Anike Akinfeleye, who died on May 6, 2023.

A statement issued Sunday, Akinfeleye said, “Darling Carol Anike, you left us 365 days ago… One year of pain and turbulence. Today, we remember and honour your beautiful life.

“You were more than a wife; you were a beacon of love, kindness, and grace. Your presence illuminated every room you entered, filling it with warmth and joy. You were a devoted Christian to a devoted partner, a loving mother, and a cherished friend.

“Though you have gone to be with the Lord, your spirit continues to live on in the memories we hold dear.”

In the message, Akinfeleye said the two families – the Akinfeleyes and Ogundipes -have continued to be guided by the legacy of love and compassion the deceased led while alive.

Professor Akinfeleye further said: “As we reflect on your exemplary life, let us carry forward your legacy of love and compassion, keeping your memory alive in our hearts forever. You are deeply missed and fondly remembered always. Darling Carol Anike mi…. Keep resting in the bosom of the Lord.”
