“Words cannot describe what I’m feeling,” she said in a statement on social media.

“I have lost the most important person in my life, and it happened so sudden and unexpected. She was only 57.

“She was a warrior who had fought for every inch of her life. She didn’t give me life once, but twice, and everything I/ we are is because of her.

“I have lost my home and I know nothing is gonna ever feel the same. Life is unfair and I don’t understand why her and why this way. I love you and I will see you again.

“Her funeral is (going to) be soon… please come and show her the love, respect and prayers she deserves.”
