If there is anyone that showed concern, reciprocate your love and respect, shoulder your burden even at her own detriment, it's my lovely aunty T. She is a kind and generous woman, full of life. I really do not know where to find another jewel. Rest on, till we meet again.

We(the Anison's) first met Tefe in the summer of 2002 on a family holiday to the uk. Her step mum had introduced us. She welcomed us like she had known us all our lives. Tefe was always a very pleasant person full of life and the will to support in anyway she could. Her kids jovwke n Elese became like younger ones to my kids. As the years went by the bond between both families grew. Tefe will forever be in our hearts as a loving mother who loved her kids(Jovwke, Elese n Micheal) passionately and wanted the best for them. To us her friends she was a very special person with a warm and kind heart.
May the Lord grant you eternal rest.
Rest in peace Tefe u will be missed but we know the good Lord will keep u till we meet to part no more.
- Love the Anison's
