Few weeks ago also, a Nigerian international makeup artist identified as Buntricia Bastian who is terminally ill shared her goodbye message on social media. The woman is reportedly known for mentoring students on how to perfect makeup skills.
The woman took to her Instagram page to say her goodbyes to friends, family and followers. She revealed that her lungs have failed and her heart is barely working to keep her alive. Bastian who is preparing for her final days also revealed that her husband would be bringing her ashes back home to Nigeria. She asked Nigerians to welcome her husband. She further thanked everyone who listened to her, adding that she feels honoured and humbled to have touched so many lives.
The post read: “It is with deep sorrow and much regret that I must say goodbye to all. My lungs are gone and my heart is only working at 30%. I for the first time have ran out of words to say other than I love you and I already miss you. IF I could put all the love that I feel right this minute from the people that I have already said my goodbyes to I would live to be 150 years. Nigeria my husband is bringing my ashes home so welcome him. It has been my honor and I am truly humbled to have touched so many of yours lives. To be honest me calling you to say goodbye to you is quite selfish on my part this way I leave you better than I came full of your love. I love ❤ you more than you will ever know. Talk Soon Buntricia.”
