Come what may, I am going to become a pharmacist' this statement was made by the late Fatile Emmanuel on the 13th day of June 2017, after we gisted, ate and cracked jokes at FF...if I continue to recall the memories we had together, it will just fill my tear gland the more, let me stop here by saying, *if tears were a ladder, I would climb it to bring you back*Tears!!! A friend and a dear brother is gone, rest in peace, my prayer is that God should grant your family, friends and acquaintances the fortitude to bear the irreparable. I will miss you, so also Ife Pharmacy will miss you. Adieu"
