It’s 00:15 am, the last thing on my mind is sleep, it’s been really hard since Dr. James went to heaven….really hard, so hard I have to ask for grace to sleep.
The first person that ever introduced me to the Truth or Dare game was Dr. James, then I was a freshman at the university, he’d come to see me at night and we’d sit on that triangle in front of Princeville Hostel, moon or no moon.
Now after four years, we played it again, but this time just truth, no dare, cos it was on bbm.
One time when it got to my turn, I asked “What’s your worst fear Dr. James? “
And then he replied…I knew I wasn’t God, but I gave him hope, said it was ok, told him we could only pray, do our best and hope for God’s will.
It all came back to me yesterday, it all came back to me.
The second was your fear of getting fat, which you simply added to the first; fear that you might not be able to achieve all that you plan to in the next ten years…I burn Dr. James, I burn.
It’s heavy on my heart, but I celebrate your life. Am sure God loves you and am sure you’re in heaven.
Life is now ours to live, we still have time. Jamie may not have lived long enough to get married, own a hospital, see his kids, but he invested in so many people. He lives on in our hearts. Immortal beautiful soul.
