To Akure, Kincaita and King,

It is with a sincere heart that I share this time of sorrow with you. Lora was beauty personified, and thus you are the legacy that she leaves to carry her name forward as you continue your lives.

It is the unfortunate natural process of life for those that we love to pass away and we no longer have the opportunity to see them again, but what cannot be taken away from us are the memories that we hold in our hearts that will live on forever. The memories of my sister, which I hold very dear to my heart are many and special. May she rest in power alongside those that left before her, and may those of us that remain behind keep her spirit alive within us.

Sincerely..........Uncle Emeer
