I am yet to get the full details of your death but it’s painful enough to draw me out of my social media hiatus. Your rude passage is too close to home for me and I dare say that you will be sorely missed.

You have been with me on the political journey and not once have you flinched. Your were there for the long haul. Not once have you voiced any hesitation to the path taken or to the roles assigned to you. Your loyalty is nonpareil and I am not sure I can build our kind of bond with anyone in your ilk.

Willy, you left unannounced. Who will pester me again? Who will always demand to see me even when sometimes inconvenient? You understood me very well that even when I thought I was managing you, you were really the one managing me. You were never angry with me. You knew I had your best interest at heart always and you totally deferred to me.

You were loyal to the very end!
