Agnes died in hospital at the weekend after an accident and was buried yesterday

Reapi Leba says her eldest daughter, five-year-old Marion Tuiloma,  keeps asking about her sibling, two-year-old Agnes Fleur Louise Tuiloma.

Agnes died last weekend at the CWM Hospital in Suva from injuries she suffered in a road accident at Tamavua. She was buried yesterday.

“Our eldest daughter Marion keeps asking everyday where Agnes is, and I told her that she has passed away.

“Whenever I tell her that, she will look away and cry,” she said.

Ms Leba said with Agnes gone, she wished that her daughter would grow up to be an educated girl, and get a good job in future.

“Now we only have our eldest daughter living with us, we will support her in her studies and future plans.”

“We hope that our little Aggie is smiling up in heaven.”

Agnes’ death brings to 31 the road death toll this year compared to 28 for the same period last year.

Ms Leba said: “I miss my little princes so much.”.

Ms Leba says her de facto partner is in Lau and still can’t believe what has happened to Agnes.

Agnes’ death, is linked to a complaint by Tamavua villagers that their request for road humps had fallen on deaf ears.
