“Linda your death has made me reflect and put things in perspective. I wish you can hear me. Having you in my life was the best dream come true” he stated.
“Words cannot describe the emptiness inside me. I miss your mind, humility and gentle soul but most especially I miss some radical decisions you took for the family when I wasn’t bold enough to take them” Pastor Kessie said.
