Testimony from Rolina’s brother: “Rolina is our bread winner. Although she’s in the USA, she still remembers, cares and gives help to our family. She’s so secretive, but she has lots of friends, for that we are thankful God gave me a sister like her. Losing Rolina and not having her here is so painful. Even today I can’t accept it. May she rest in peace. . . . I love you sister. . . Ronnie – Brother”
