Every time, I think of you I always wonder where you are but I know I don’t have to worry because I know you are sitting next to God. You are irreplaceable. I will always love you with all my heart, Maryam loves you so much too. The world would never forget you Mother. Rest in peace” said the late actress’ daughter.
