    Dearest Uncle Quamer

    There is a word that continually comes up when people speak of you. The word is “inspiration”. Surely the definition of inspiration is the motivation one gets to undertake a particular course of action. The source of that...  more

    Dear Quamer,
    It is many years since you introduced me to your colleague, Colin, at a curry dinner in Manchester. I married him just over a year later and he was the love of my life. Thank you.

    Amo Quamer and Mary were my rocks when I was at QUB in the late 90s. When my flat mates and later house mates would go home to their families, I would go "home" to Amo Quamer and Mary. During Ramadan I would just stay the whole month and not...  more

    Dear Uncle Quamer,

    The day we lost you uncle, was the day my world lost its spark. The fond memories in your presence keep replaying on my mind on repeat.
