“Starting from medical school you were among those who stood by me, and by every good cause. It is heartbreaking that your dreams were cut short on the line of giving it all for your patients. My heart is heavy because I was privy to your humble beginning, to the vicissitudes and to the lofty dreams now dashed. We’ll miss you, Dr Alfred Ejiofor Uzoigwe. May your gentle soul rest in peace brother. Amen”
