How would you describe the deceased?

She was my big sister. She loved her fellow human beings just like herself. Whenever something happened to someone, she took it up as if she was in the person’s position. We were three friends. Now that she is gone, we are two left.

How long were you together?

I knew her since 1989. We met on location and since then she took me like her sister.

Can you remember the last time you met and your last discussion?

The last time I saw her was in February last year. I was in a location and she met me there, that was the last we met. But we always talked on phone until her death. I called her on December 25, 2016, and she said I should pay her a visit. I told her I would come in the New Year. We still talked on December 27 before her children called me that she was critically sick on January 1, 2017. So, I had to rush down to her place. She died the following day.

Where you there when she died?

Yes, I was with her.

What would you miss about her?

Everything. I would miss everything about her. Is it the way she stood solidly behind me as if she was my big sister? I used to say that even my biological big sister couldn’t do more than what she did for me. She was a nice person.
