Today marks the 30years remembrance of my darling wife, my very first love, Mother of my older children Late alhaja sherifat abimbola kosoko née Lawal.

Death! is usually like rumour to us until it comes to someone very dear and precious to one! When I lost you in 1993 to the cold hands of death, it was not a pleasant exprience for me because you serve as my source of joy and happiness and that of your children too, you played a central and a vital role in the balance of the home even thou I got along few years after your demise, certain events & circumstances always trigger your loving memories.

I know you stand with me in spirit hence I believe in the Yoruba adage which says ‘Oku olomo ki sun’ Comtinue to Rest In Peace my darling.
