Grieved to the bone marrow, OJB Jezreel’s second wife, June Ama, writes down a tribute expressing her joy in the midst of the sadness.
According to the tribute, June Ama, who has three sons for OJB, says her lips are filled with joy and that she is grateful to God for the life of her husband which was well spent.
She took to her Facebook page to express her heartfelt emotions, stating that she is glad that the terrible pain that made days horrible and nights a torture were over.
“With a grateful heart to GOD…with praises on my lips…and thanks in my heart I thank God for the life of my Husband Babatunde Okungbowa aka OJB JEZREEL.
“You sang and said so much about the day you would leave this world, you had no fear of death or pain, all you held onto was your love for God, your love for your children… it’s the love that kept you breathing day and night, you never lost your faith in the Lord.
“You died a believer, you died a true Christian… so I cry tears of joy for you, joy that the pain that made days horrible..the pain that made nights a torture are over.
“LET NO MAN TAKE GOD’S GLORY FOR YOUR LIFE…every day you lived was by the GRACE AND MERCY OF GOD, not by money, not by drugs, not by doctors, as no one could explain how you survived all the attacks and several health issues that came your way. Your beautiful story will be told darling, your pure heart and endless love will see us through losing you my love.”
