Dec 1939-Feb 2022.No words. This year has been so so..First my lil cousin bro; Dera. I didn’t even know he was sick, Just heard he passed. I’m still at a loss for words about his passing. Dera was laid to rest on Sat. 12th February; Then my biological dad died early hours of the 13th. Also lost My Fav. uncle Chudy late last year. Lost a close friend this year too. Flying to Anambra for the burial rites last week felt like a journey of a thousand years. So many emotions and recanting. Blessed to have learnt a lot from all of them and grateful for the bonds we shared. God bless their memory and encourage all who they left behind. . .
