      @Stone it’s a tragedy but it’s not a waste because he planted a meaningful seed that would outlive him which many who live twice as long will never achieve.

    This is so sad. Heard the great work he did in creating and the big dreams he had. This brings back some bad memories of another young one lost at the prime of life – a former classmate, first class graduate got a full scholarship from Cambridge, he died few days before his flight. These are potential and future problem solvers with so much inside to give to the world.

    May the Lord console the family of this young man. I am really heartbroken.

    Rest in peace ? ☹️☹️☹️☹️??

    What are our young dying from? This is awful. Sudden death in young people should not be acceptable and is not normal

    Rip. Every sucessful person in the world is a hustler one way or another. We all hustle to get where we need to be. Only a fool would sit around and wait on another man to feed him
