    My family haven’t known her for a very long time but she was a very nice person who would lookout for my son and I whenever we passed through the bus terminal. You see I had a special needs son and she fell in love with him and would always ask how he was doing. Even when he graduated into his wheelchair and not taking the bus from her location anymore she would make sure she still sends up snacks for him. I learnt of her passing while trying to find her for awhile to let her know that my son was sick and eventually passed, only a week before her. This has been a double blow for our family, please accept our condolences, we know that the both of them have meet in the that beautiful place and are keeping each other company. Our Condolences to her entire family, she will truly be missed. From The Robinson Family.
