Rest Brother, Rest!
You remind us that Life is fragile and transient and every minute lived should be as though the next isn’t promised.
Your potential was unquestionable and your brilliance undoubtable, but your time was up.

I don't know how I feel! This is too much to bear. I told you I had to see you when you came home in June because I wanted to share an idea with you. Then you left few days after for the final lap of your Master's. I didn't know. You didn't know!@Adavizealao pic.twitter.com/s9d5HnNfrV
