“In blessed memory of my dearest Grandmother Elizabeth Diana Uzuhai (whose presence and love I still feel ) and her Mother, my great grandmother Margaret Esedumme- Both amazing women in their unique ways.

I also acknowledge and celebrate my paternal Grandmother Janet Gbandi, whose compassion, love and wisdom I heard of as a child . Sadly we never met , but I am an extension of your divine femininity..”
