Busi!

In Loving memory of our beloved Busisiwe who passed away at 04.00 am this morning.  Busi was our domestic worker and she had been with our family for just more than 10 years.  She has had a nasty cough and has been treated for this by our local clinic and Dr's.  Last week, her husband took her home to Kwa Zulu Natal, where we believe she was treated by a Sangoma (witch doctor) being their custom.  She became more ill, so he took her to the local hospital, where died this morning from complications arising from pneumonia.

I am still in a state of shock and cannot believe that our sweet Busi won't be back.  My heart bleeds for her 3 little girls, Tando, Nobele and little Zanele (who was born not long after Busi came to work for us) and Tokozane her husband, who was so good to her and their girls.


We love you Busi and will miss your happy smile and warm hugs!

Dear Girl,

I am so sorry for your loss. I lived in Africa for a while and know the close bond, like family that can form when people are joined in the home.

Prayers and good wishes go out to her and the family. Peace, X.
