It was unusual I hadn’t heard from you in these few days because knowing my mama Cee she will be the first person to text me worried then tease me … sent you a WhatsApp asking ” Mama C Na mentee wonka oo ©” but after several hours seeing two ticks I felt something was wrong then they broke the news to me. We know what you would love for all of us (to be strong ) we will try of us ( to be strong ) we will try Mama C! J. Condolences to the family and friends especially the children… let’s stay strong.”
