I WAS greatly saddened to hear of the untimely passing of a dear friend of mine, George Yapao LlB, former head of the law faculty at the University of Papua New Guinea. He had resigned from the post when he suffered a stroke.
George, aged 54, was a gifted writer my immediate reaction when I learnt of his death was a feeling of great loss, and I wrote this final letter to my friend…..
Remember, George, we came up on the same flight to Wapenamanda recently? I had high hopes when you said you were on treatment. But I thank the Lord He has ended your suffering and taken you to His heavenly shores.
Remember I told you I would republish a poem you wrote in our UPNG Enga Students Association Yearbook when we were students at UPNG all those years ago?
