The news of the passing away of Professor was a disheartening one to me. She was more than a lecturer who was also interested in the career growth of her students. It wasn't really a love at first sight relationship with her for me because I remember her lectures used to be in the afternoon when I am losing concentration and attention span. There were times she would catch me always pressing phone or eating in her class. The interesting thing was that instead of rebuking me or punishing me, she always gave me tasks like "timekeeper for the day, assistant class captain for the day".
Months after my program, she met me at a church program. S, she sat me down to discuss my career interests. I remember her trying to "win" me over to the logotherapy side despite my reservations. She noticed I had a keen interest in therapies and whenever we saw, we discussed different treatment modalities and how important logotherapy was going to be in years to come.
Truly an amazing woman, mother and lecturer she was. I am glad I got to know her even though the time wasn't enough.
Rest easy ma.
