Heartbreaking loss

Rajnesh Ishwar Lingam, Nadawa, Nasinu

While the world was mourning the loss of famous Bollywood actress Sridevi, back at home tragedy struck when the Cessna 172 aircraft under instructor Iliesa Tawalo and trainee pilot Merelesita Lutu crashed at Delaikoro.

Iliesa and Merelesita did not survive the crash and have left fond memories. I took out time to read and reflect on what the families of the deceased had to share about their lives and I could feel the pain as they lost a loved one.

At the end of the day, we can't do much because God's will prevails. My heartfelt sympathy and deepest condolences to the family of Iliesa and Merelesita! On the other hand, losing a celebrity like Sridevi shocked many at home and overseas.

Her fans wept openly. I pray that the souls of actress Sridevi and Iliesa and Merelita find solace and peace! Rest in peace!
