Uncle , l will forever remember you for your gentle and encouraging words while you were in London . You are such a perfect gentle man and easy going man. We love you but l am sadden because l did not call you before you left this word . All in all thank God for the life spent upon this earth.

‘The memory of the righteous is a blessing.’ I still can’t believe you are no longer with us. I still find myself looking at my phone at 7 o’clock every day to see if you have called. You were more than my father, you were also my mentor. I am privileged to have known you for as long as I have lived. You have taught me about love, resilience, contentment, and how to forgive.
I remember those days you come and pick us up in primary and secondary school, the two weekly trips you make down to Ago-Iwoye to bring my brother and myself, water and stew and our neighbours always looking forward to you coming, and when we got our phones you would call us every day and ask us ‘how are you? I hope you have eaten. Have you finished reading that textbook? Did you go to church today? And you would end this by praying for us.’
You loved God, and I am happy you served him until your dying day. Your love for education is something I admire, I remember you telling us that the most important thing you can leave us with is education, which you did and for which we will be eternally grateful. Your tenacity and resilience will continue to encourage me when faced with challenges. You were a gentleman to the core and kind to everyone. Your dedication to your work is worthy of emulation, I remember the hospital ambulance coming to pick you up in the dead of the night to go and operate on patients, this you do without hesitation. You have mentored a lot of doctors.
I am happy I was part of your success story, I and my wife (‘to-to’ as you fondly call her) are grateful for all you did for us.
‘Till we meet again, God be with us all.'
Rest in peace Dr B.A Sanyaolu.
