Yesterday, we heard the passing of our dear friend Oya. We visited her last October when we were in Istanbul and even then she was suffering to some extent. She was a linguist, a teacher, a friend, especially a close one to my late sister Binnaz. We will miss her but will find comfort in that she is no longer suffering. I took the following photographs back in October 2019 during our visit with her. I told her that I would take a couple of photographs and she said: “don’t show them to me.” And, I have not until today.
Jan and I express our heartfelt condolences to all Oya’s family, friends, students.
Rest in peace, Oya.
