Professeur Sokombe Ekofo,
Rien ne peut combler le vide que tu as laissé après ton départ dans l’au-delà; aucun mot, aucun autre être ne peut remplacer le silence de ton absence par la chaleur et la générosité que, seule, ta présence paternelle pouvait procurer.
En ce jour de célébration de la fête des pères, je prie pour que le Maitre de l’univers protège et garde tous tes enfants!

The Dance (GARTH BROOKS)
Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye
And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
Holding you I held everything

They say that time heals all wounds, time goes by and the pain lingers.... I can only hope that you are happy and at peace where you are. I miss you terribly! As I am getting ready to go to Albuquerque, I can't stop thinking of the day I came to see you for the last time. You stayed up late waiting for me to come home. If only I could see you again...
Have a wonderful day where you are and know that you'll never be forgotten.
Love always, Maduda

On this 2nd anniversary of your going home, I can hear you whisper "If You Could See Me Now..."
With Love Forever

Today I remember you in a very special way.
As tears flow down my face, I can hear you whisper into my ear this Andrea Bocelli’s song: “Because We Believe.”
I remember your last dream you shared with me in the hospital room the day they implanted a port in your chest to help with drawing blood and to help with chemotherapy.
You told me that you were dreaming that we were visiting Italy and, that you were showing

My dear Ekofo, is is only now that I am able to think about our life together in a peaceful, loving and positive way. I am avoiding the horrible memories of your illness and they are buried in a room in my mind far away.
We had a good life together. We shared so many good times, love and laughter, partys, music, going on picnic in Jemez, going to Taos, Going to walk at Rio Grande Nature center, going to

Professor Ekofo made a huge impact on my life; by encouraging me to pursue a degree in economic or accounting. I chose accounting. He was one of my favorite professors; so, understanding, helpful and kind. My love and prayers go out to the family. I wish I would have known sooner. He is a great man, and I feel blessed that I was able to meet and know him. God Bless your family.
