I salute them all, who shared you with me, paying for your bills, calling on others to give their dimes, I appreciate the toils and tears and All the memories you left for Them. Leaving only me’.’
Jeremiah who was the first of Yinka’s two children would have been 28 on February 21. May his soul rest in peace, Amen.
