THE late cosmetics entrepreneur Faziani Rohban Ahmad had recently told her children never to fight over money after her death, reported Mingguan Malaysia.
Faziani, who died in a road crash in Pattani, Thailand, on Saturday, had said this to her four biological children and four stepchildren, said her stepdaughter Ainul Atiya Ahmad Shah Rizal.
Ainul Atiya, 18, said the last time she met Faziani was when they had a sahur meal together on Saturday.
“She did not say much and looked tired. I didn’t expect that it would be a sign that she would leave us forever,” she said, adding that her parents had just returned from Mecca a few days ago.
Faziani, who was the founder of Dnars skincare product, had been travelling in a Toyota Estima multi-purpose vehicle with her husband Ahmad Shah Rizal Ibrahim, 42, to give a donation to a tahfiz school in Pattani.
In the 10.30am tragic incident, Faziani was killed after the vehicle which her husband was driving collided with a lorry in Pattani.
