  1. The news was so sudden, my heart is so saddened.
    I remember your outgoing personality, everyone you met was a friend.
    I will always be fond of the basketball games in our outdoor court on our MEGI compound,
    in the West African heat, humidity, and no-see-ums we played on.
    You were a generous host and great cook of house seven.
    You were one of the ones that kept us together when we found ourselves so far from family and friends.
    Will always keep you in my prayers.

    My sincere condolences to your family, I will miss you, buddy, — Eleno
