Tribute to Dean Akpan

Good evening everyone.

To some of us,  Dean Akpan was a father, a friend, a brother and a role model
He was not just a club advisor to the society for ethics and leadership, he was an amazing patron.

He has achieved success he has lived well,
he laughed often and loved much:
he has enjoyed the trust of his wife,
the respect of intelligent men and the love of his children;
he has filled the niche and accomplished his task;
he  has left the world better than he found it;
whether by a perfect song, a smile, a dance, a joke or a rescued soul;
he  has never lacked appreciation of Earth's beauty
or failed to express it;
he has always looked for the best in others
and given the best he had.
he’s life was an inspiration;
he’s memory a benediction.

And so today, You can shed tears that he is gone
Or you can smile because he has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
