A great man is gone.

Hmm! Espistle could be written but words alone could not express how painful it was to lose a great man; father and academic per excellence. Growing up with you is something I will always remember. Your intelligence, discipline and humorous nature makes you unique.

Daddy as I always called you; you taught me to always approach things with determination cum open-mindedness. These has always been a legacy in me. Also, one of your popular quotes-"the only palm fruit in the fire can not be lost but can only be broken" has kept me going.

Sir, you are one of the the few true Christians I have seen; it is a clear handwriting on the wall that your absence will be greatly missed. I pray you continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord.

On the sick bed, you told us that you have written and forwarded your letter to God through Jesus, you are only awaiting approval, and now that your documents have been approved, continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord.

Sun re e ooo daddy!!!

Your last fruit,
Ogun Vincent Mauyon.
