Words cannot fully describe our deep sorrow and sadat the passing of Sis Babsie. Her dedication, love and care towards her family, friends and all those she came into contact with will be sorely missed. She left a lasting impression on whoever she met and interacted with, always with a kind word and encouragement. Thank you Dr. Ndlela and family for sharing her with us. Her many words of encouragement, warm smile and words of wisdom will live on in our hearts and daily lives as we continue to reflect on all she so willingly shared with us. Sis Babsie was indeed a gift to humankind. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with the family and may you be comforted by the wonderful memories of the many years spent together. Stay Blessed and May Sis Babsie rest peacefully in Gods Glory in the company of other Angels. Thoko Tembe and Brigid Mzimela Allyson.

It is heart-breaking and sad to know you are gone, we won’t be able to see you again. You were truly God's blessing to us. God blessed us with your life, your heart, your compassion, your teachings, and we are grateful for the ladies we have become with what you have taught us. God has allowed us to love, cherish and celebrate you for the time you had with us. You will forever be in our hearts. We love you mom Babsie. Ulale ngoxolo Thabizolo.

Ohhh! What a shock,this morning. Just a few days I oriented my wife Thandi on our family history & I spoke about Sister Babsy, that I never met in my life. However, by having shared my youthful life under Khubi's care at uMlazi, south of Durban,RSA, I want to say Babsy must have had that glorious & peaceful smile. I m personally devastated to wake up with such shocking news, indeed.
I, nevertheless, find solace in knowing that she is resting in eternity.
My deepest thoughts go out to Dr Ndlela and family at this time. May he find strength in knowing ONE of the FOUR elements of this particular experience. Our dearly admired Sr Babsy "is forward looking to the eternal peace & calamity that can ONLY come from the presence of Christ Himself, where she is NOW."
Sr Babsy is definitely not looking backwards to the opposite of the four elements pertaining to those who have departed with the hope and belief in a risen J esus Christ.
May the Sompisi's; & the Nonkosi's as well as my dear brother Prof Acquira J. Mbokazi & especially Khubi know that, only Christ can wipe away those tears,especially, at this time.
May the abounding love of Jesus Christ abide with all of us at this moment.
From The Rev. Canaan Caleb & Mrs Thandi L. Mbokazi from Pietermaritzburg & Pinetown,KZN.RSA

Dear Umama,
I always heard wonderful stories about you and how you were so loving and I always had this impression that you had the biggest and softest heart. 
May the Almighty hold your family together till we all meet again on that glorious resurrection morning. 
Rest peacefully in the Lord.
