MY HEART IS FILLED WITH SORROW UPON HEARING THE NEWS OF HER DEPARTURE. IT HAS DEEPLY SADDENED ME. I EXPRESS MY DEEPEST MOURN. I PRAY FOR HER DEPARTED SOUL. SHE TREATED ME AS HER YOUNGER BROTHER. I AM HONOURED AND BLESSED TO KNOW SUCH GREAT PERSON. I WILL TRULY MISS HER. FOR THE FAMILY MEMBERS AND ORPHANS WHOM SHE HAD GIVEN LIFE I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT DEATH MAY INDEED BE FINAL BUT THE LOVE WE SHARE WHILE LIVING IS ETERNAL. SHE WAS A WONDERFUL WOMAN AND WAS CHERISHED BY EVERYONE WHO KNEW HER. I REMEMBER THAT ONCE SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE WILL NOT STOP WORK TILL THERE IS A SINGLE DESTITUTE WOMAN AND DESRTED CHILD AROUND HER. I WISH MAY HER NOBLE WORK CONTINUES.
