"Big Mami Bokeng, I remember your last days with us how you cared for us more than your self. You were ready to spend sleepless nights to ensure the survival of baby miracle, Beryl my wife and mami Mather our dear mum when they were hospitalized. Only God knows why He called you home so soon. I also remember the prayer of faith you made when Miracle was about to pass away " Oxygen or no Oxygen you must live in Jesus name" and she is alive today. Thanks a lot Sis. Life is just a transition. I know it is well with your soul in Jesus name. A Dieu A Dieu"
