A SPECIAL little six-year-old girl fell off a second­ storey balcony on the afternoon of October 31 in Shelly Beach and died the following morning.

Ntando Soqashe had autism and loved being outside. She loved water, flowers - especially red roses - mops, brooms, different shaped containers and spoons. She loved “cooking stews out of mud”, water, flower petals and leaves.

She loved swinging and laughed a lot, especially when she heard “Three Blind Jelly Fish” and enjoyed the wind blowing through the leaves.

Ntando was non-verbal, yet showed those around her with her expressive eyes and the pulling of your hand what she needed or wanted.

Ntando did not bother about daily routines, rules and regulations made by others, she had her own.

She was beautiful, happy and usually content.

She went to Thuthukani Pre-school, our happy place, from when she was three years old. She will be missed dearly. Lord, comfort her parents and show all of us Your Grace and Mercy.
