“My dear brother. You still rest in the ground you worked so hard to turn jungle into a viable land as to live a better life. Though the jungle has reclaimed the town you worked so hard to build and your gravesite with it, it can never encroach and reclaim your memory. Brother, I hope you are resting in peace. The God that I love loves all his children and I am sure the day you passed and met him you learned what peace and tranquility are all about. My thoughts are with you and my prayers are for your family my friend. When I get to heaven, I wish to embrace you brother and give you a hug you so lovingly deserve. In brotherly love and in Christ's Heavenly name, Dr. Ron ” - Dr. Ronald McIntyre
