This evening finds me in a sombre mood, as today marked exactly 2 years, since my dearest mummy, had passed away. Everyday is a challenge, though it gets a little more easier to bear her loss, there is just that little bit deep within that refuses to heal. So it is with thoughts of her in mind, that I penned a few words. I hope these words can bring some solace to others, who like myself and my family, have lost this precious gem.
Please do remember my Late Mummy, Rashida Essa, In your humble Duas/Prayers.
