    My professor, mentor, teacher, and a beautiful lady friend. It’s hard to believe, but you will always be in my heart. Memories while in collage was always fun being in your class. But one thing that I will always remember when decorating a classroom use 2 colors. Your advice, talks about going back to finish my masters was always exciting. But I will go back to get it n finish it. You will be missed n will always cherish your talks,training n your beautiful smile. Rest in peace my friend n fly high with the Angels n pain free. Love you always my beautiful friend. Let Daiz
