Not as a former Chief of COU but as someone who had a very special connection with my 'little one' as I always called Eugene - I pay tribute to a very special lady. 

It was an instant locking of hearts when Josie Villamin first introduced us In 1992. I took Eugene under my protective wing to run the UN Gift Shop. It took Eugene's energetic and creative gifts  to transform a small area with only T-shirt to eventually moving to a large and very attractive Gift Shop!  It's success was mainly due to Eugene's open and friendly character that enticed Diplomats and Representatives  to do all their shopping under one roof!!  This included former UN Secretary General and Mrs. Kofi Annan.

Eugene was an example of peace, tranquility, good humour and laughter.  Fly high, dearest little one and you will be received with all the love and joy that you spread when you were with us!  We will always remember and never forget!!
