Dearest Yetade, I knew you as a little girl when I first came to Nigeria in 1970, and visited your house often. I remember you as a serious, thoughtful, intelligent child, your nose always buried in a book. My regret is that I did not know you in your adult years. From all the wonderful and beautiful comments about you, I can see that you more than fulfilled your tremendous potential. My thoughts are with the entire family at this difficult time. May you rest in perfect peace. Lovingly, Aunty Susan
