Lit by Peyi Soyinka-Airewele December 28th, 2019
My darling sister Tade, as the days and years go by, your memory grows sharper still- your laugh, your ever-present compassion for those who suffer, for the poor and the marginalized; I recall our birthdays together, your stories of boarding house at Queen's school; your fierce love for your children Oreofe and Adeoto- a love that burned even when you were ill- and I miss you still and miss you more. But every day that goes by now reminds me of the growing company of saints, of loved ones who are waiting to tell us all we have missed while we are on this side of life. Keep dancing, keep laughing, keep rejoicing until we all meet again. I love you precious big sister. Love from Peyi
