She’s the only one who has ever blessed me, clothed me, fed me and prayed for me as a mother. The closest I have got to love from motherhood was from her, and she gave more than what she had.
She was the best, the best woman on earth and because of her, sometimes I say, thank God I never knew my mother because she would not have been as good as this.”
