To many she was Dr. Asagba, then Prof. Asagba, but to me, she was Latunde’s mum, my friend’s mum. Getting closer, I got to know she is a kind, thoughtful and resilient person. She always looked out for others and gave thoughtful gifts.
You took your daughter’s friends as your daughters by extension. Latunde’s mum gave me a birthday cake on my birthday in 2010. I remember being so blown away with love at the very kind gesture. For every of our celebrations, weddings and all, Latunde’s mum always showed up. Her love is very reliable.
I remember her love for Logotherapy. It sounded like a cool discipline for a very brilliant person to be involved in. She gave us souvenirs from her Logotherapy conferences. For her, love was always sharing.
It was always easy to make her happy...something as little as sending her messages or replying her messages gave her so much joy. She was always appreciative of whatever one gave her and always so thoughtful of others.
I remember Latunde’s mum today, and the life of love she lived. Always giving, loving and sharing. Thank you for being a gift that kept giving. Thank you for touching us so much. Thank you for teaching us the value of loving others, and sharing what we have with them. You will be forever in our hearts.
