Obsequies?

With gratitude to ‘God’ for a life well spent, and with deepest sorrow and condolences to her survivors, I the undersigned wish to announce the passing away of our most loyal, productive and dearly beloved friend, helper, encourager and employee – the one and only Miss Eleganza Biro, which sad event occurred on the 15th of May 2009 after a brief illness.

Miss Biro assumed duties as examination biro at B &A on the 4th of December 2008 and presided over a very fruitful period of examinations, the highlight of which was improving average performance by over 60% year on year. In recognition of such stellar performance, she was promptly elevated to the position of Biro-at-large, one she held until her recent untimely death.

Miss Biro will be forever remembered at B&A not only for her stellar performance, but also for her charitable and amiable manners and her commitment to mentorship which endeared her to all and sundry.

A memorial mass will be held at the Temple of Fire and Brimstone on the 31st of May immediately following which her body will be cremated and spread all over the exam halls of NU as a tribute to the scene of her greatest exploits.

Signed
Chief (Dr) Professor, Danny BaGucci.  FIMechE, FIEEE, FASME, OFR, CFR, CON, JP. (Executive Director)
