“I never take it for granted when people offer their services and Patrice was always willing. She always sought excellence and was constantly improving; she was a Rose and a belle at the same time. She sang beautifully, she was always pleasant and she always had a smile. She was torn from the veil and I hope that her parents would find continue to find comfort in prayer.”

The Culture Minister continued: “Patrice was a good role model and it is really sad, some things are acts of fate and no man knows the hour of death.”
