Concerning Segun…We are still at a loss for words. Your gentle smile and your quiet brilliance will not be forgotten. Dear Eno, May God be to you a light continually, May He hold you dear when you are lonely and May He cheer you when you are down. He will never leave you.

i still recall all our growing up years,when we'll pack ourselves in your dad's car on the way to school, all the times we used to wait for daddy to pick us up after school and we will play our hearts away. i remember how proud you made me feel when i attended your graduation from the medical school and you were packing all the prices. tears roll down my eyes as i write this. it's harder that i didnt have the oportunity to say good bye. i regret not checking you during my last visit to North Carolina. you were a brother and a friend. you will greatly be missed. we will continue to take solace in the fact that you are resting with your king. farewell brother.

Segun, you were my friend, no, my brother. My childhood is not complete without you. Even when separated by time and distance, in my heart, you were still my brother. I planned a surprise visit for 2013, but now i have to wait till we meet to part no more. Sleep well, my friend.
