The reason why it took me so long to say anything is because, I’m still in denial. I still can’t believe that you are no more, brother. I wouldn’t have thought, for a second, that the word no more and your name would, this soon, be coupled!
The first and last time we were together, you were full of life; you were warm, light and bright. The human in you exuded all things eternity. Those few days we spent together felt like we knew each other for that eternity your carried. I learnt a lot from you, and loved Ethiopia because of you and Dolly.
Brother, you are not gone, you will forever leave on in our memories.
Until we meet again, brother. Leave on.
