‘Adisa, our daughter, our strong brilliant sweet girl. Life will never be the same. We will miss the laughter and the joy you created and the unity you always brought in the family. The immense love you had for us, your love for your children, nieces and nephews was deep and we thanked God for you always. Our family doctor and great advisor, your values as a person will never be forgotten and your legacy will live on. You have forever made us proud. Adisa, the pain in our hearts cannot even be measured and you have left with a piece of our hearts. Rest in peace mwana, your memories will keep us strong until we meet again in the arms of our Lord. God loved you most Ady,’ read their tribute.
