Just this past week, U sent me your service pictures that u wish to enlarge them whenever you are back and have kept your passport photograph not knowing you won’t come back for it .. Agbayanu Daniel as I fondly call u… The moments we shared will forever be fresh in my memory. You made an impact in my life… I can never forget you blood.
