Professor. Headley

With a warm smile he greets you

and a firm hand shake

Even though he’s just meeting you

for the first time

He listens to everyone

and wasn’t bias in his judgements

He was a man of truth and valor

and a hard worker

He brings a touch of class

to everyone and everything he works on

He held his head high

because he was very proud

We lost a great person

a father to everyone

A friend in times of need

and a true motivator

On behalf of NODM,

which is one of his success and great achievement

We mourns as we have lost someone we can

and always lean on

May your soul rest in eternal peace!
