Nadia was truly one of the sweetest and genuine people I have met. And to think that we won’t see her again, running around doing something or the other, talking to everyone she meets on her way to class or debating with the tutor and other students; is truly sad.
Nadia was a journalism student, but what made her stand apart and shine was her perseverance and determination. Without a doubt she would have been the one to make it big in the dog-eat-dog industry.
I’m sure there was not one of us who were not touched by her kindness. She was one of those people who would light up a room just by walking in.
Whenever we walk in to the newsroom or the radio studio, I will always remember her voice and laughter and it will always light up our hearts.
Nadia Baird… you will always be remembered…
Like A Comet Blazing ‘Cross the Evening Sky, Gone Too Soon
Like A Rainbow Fading In the Twinkling of an Eye, Gone Too Soon
Shiny and Sparkly and Splendidly Bright, Here One Day Gone One Night
Like The Loss of Sunlight on a Cloudy Afternoon, Gone Too Soon
Like A Castle Built Upon a Sandy Beach, Gone Too Soon
Like A Perfect Flower That Is Just Beyond Your Reach, Gone Too Soon
Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight; Here One Day Gone One Night
Like A Sunset Dying With the Rising of the Moon, Gone Too Soon, Gone Too Soon
Gone too soon by Michael Jackson
