“I only knew you at/in your death, I wondered why everyone seemed so sad n mourned you publicly. My first thought WHO IS SHE, I did the girly thing..slide into your page, watched your beautiful life. Took a stroll to your DM and I fell in love with you immediately,” she wrote.
“You tired to reach out as a support and pillar IN MY TRYING TIMES. You were one of the only people who tried to help me and you didn’t even know me. In your honour last year I gave seven women IVF treatment to celebrate you in private.”
“Am grateful for the love you wanted to give me…KEEP RESTING IN PEACE MA’AM.”
