Her daughter said this at the memorial service. "Mummy it still feels like a dream to me that you are no more, it still scares me that I'll never see you again. I don't know why this had to happen to you of all people but God knows best. Heaven couldn't wait for a gem like you that's why God took you so early.

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 Adunola Farombi.
