    “You know it’s not the same as it was”, without you it will never be the same again. This song will forever be our song and I will forever remember you.
    I will also always remember our last conversation where you inspired me to do whatever I want to do in this life.
    I hope that you are now dancing and singing in heaven with your father and my grandpa.
    You will always be in my heart…seni seviyorum ❤️🙏🏼

    On a cloudy afternoon
    Gone too soon”
    Ilkay Hala you have gone too soon.
    Unfortunately, we didn’t have much time to spend together. But the days we had together will always be remembered.
    Thank you for the beautiful words you said to me during our last conversation. I am glad that I can listen to these voice messages at any time.
    We miss you and always have you in our hearts. And every time we dance we think of you.
    Seni cok seviyoruz 🤍

  14. Because of YOU, I have Meka and those babies apart of our world. Because of YOU, I am inspired. Because of YOU, I have strength. Because of YOU, I have courage. Because of YOU Kay, I will remain “humbled” and carry it with “grace.” The two words I will forever remember and what you left me with. Thank you 🙏🏾

  15. I love you Mama Kay and thank God for the opportunity to meet you, via your voice, your spirit, your light. Rest well and in total peace. I know how much you loved Meka and all your Grandbabies and it was admirable. I love that you loved God…and that He loved you. You will be missed. Love, Nerissa
