Read the excerpt below:
My darling brother, I never imagined that I would have to write a tribute about you this way, not so soon my senior Dare! It’s been extremely difficult coming to terms with your demise. It still feels like a dream, but Alas, our Master and saviour has decided to take you home, to keep you with Him.
You covered me in so many ways growing up. You are such a sweet soul, super stylish of course! Giving us all shades of glam all the time. Never un-fresh Super organized and disciplined to the core, it was evident in the way you worked, in the way you did the things of God, in the way lived and did everything
For days, I wished it would all be a dream; my heart is broken, scarred in no small measure. And, if were without faith, I might despair,
I chose to stay strong, even though the pain. It is very difficult but I chose to celebrate your me! Your legacy! I chose to celebrate because I know that we shall still meet again.
You are my big brother, in every sense of the word; and even though there were times we didn’t quite agree, I know you loved me and wanted the best and I loved you too.
! You took up the cudgels for me and stuck with me in awkward moments. You demonstrated what it meant to serve with brilliance and class. Oh! You were remarkably full of wisdom, solid on logic, and gifted with an incredible sense of humour.
Who would have thought that I would come to miss all of those so soon? Things were just about to get an exciting buddy! But I will forever cherish the memories we made and shared, I choose to turn my thoughts toward Heaven, where you are currently partying with the angels.
Sun reo, Egbon mi
With love from your one and only Lekuma!
