  3. She was a friend who was so hard to annoy, always passionate and easy to get along with. Down to earth and always there for colleagues in times of need. She ran her race and ran it as a champion. I will personally miss your warmth and accommodating heart ba pongoshi. Just in case you didn’t know, you touched so many souls while you were on this earth. May God the Almighty take good care of your soul and give strength and guidance to your family during this trying and difficult moment for them.
