Konka: Tribute in Pictures

Konka, a.k.a Juanita During, my sister

On August 16, 2012, my oldest sister passed away, a few months to her 42nd birthday. It’s still such a shock and almost doesn’t bear thinking – especially the suddenness of it. I miss you, but I know you’re in a far better place…

As a baby, with Bros. Chris
With our brother, Christopher During, and her friend, Esther Iange, at the opening of Ladinah Boutique
With our cousin Salma, at our sister’s traditional engagement. The amariya, Nannah, has the pink shawl on

I have no idea what she was pointing at!!!
