It’s like a dream, Damn my nephew Mola.My brain is still processing your death.I’m in denial! I pictured you every second, minute, hour. I don’t easily sleep at night.You didn’t promise to do this to my sister or your father especially on a CHRISTMAS DAY. HEART FAILURE! Why so soon Mola?

Mools! Still doesn’t seem real that you are an ancestor now. I literally just saw you and your son in October and House Of Pizza. I remember the days on E. Orange St. and Caribbean Breeze nights with Ras and the crew in early 2000’s. Such good times! I’m blessed to have known you this lifetime. I will remember that kind smile and quick wit of yours. Love you dearly bro. And all my love to your family. Rest up ancestor! 🤍
