As a colleague, you were the first to ever call me excitedly back then to inform me that I have been nominated for an award in Canada, you made sure I submitted with everyone going on that trip, it is how you always try to carry me along in anything happening in the association for me.
Although, we have our differences in some areas, that we couldn’t agree, you were a sweet soul who always find ways to mend problems that could cause distance or malice between us💔
I am forever saddened that I will never get to see you in this life again, maybe in another life hopefully.
