PETALING JAYA: Friends and relatives bade farewell to their loved ones who died in the MH17 tragedy by turning up in large crowds at mosques and cemeteries.
In Ipoh, as the remains of MH17 passenger Noor Rahimmah Mohd Nor were laid to rest at her family home in Kampung Melayu Rizab, Tambun, one person was missing – her son.
Distraught over her death, Johan Hippolyte Tournier, 26, could not bring himself to travel from Geneva to attend the ceremony.
“My brother can’t take it. My mother’s burial went on well although it has taken some time,” said his sister, Anne Rahimmah.
The remains of Noor Rahimmah, 67, were brought back to the Kampung Masjid Lama Muslim cemetery near her home for burial at about 2.30pm yesterday.
In Kuala Lumpur, Ahmad Tarmizi, 41, paid tribute to his late wife, air stewardess Hamfazlin Sham Mohamed Ariffin, 37.
“I’m glad that God made her my life partner. She was the best for me and our kids.”
They have two sons, Haiqal, eight, and Hazim, two. Hamfazlin was laid to rest at the KL-Karak Muslim cemetery in Taman Batu Muda at 3.10pm.
In Seremban, thousands paid their last respects to MAS leading stewardess Mastura Mustafa, who was laid to rest at the Taman Paroi Jaya Muslim cemetery after Friday prayers.
