In her touching note, Mahira wrote, She wrote, “My one and my only mamu Mamu.. It’s hard to imagine that my handsome larger than life Mamu is no more.. I’ve heard all Mamus are special.. but it feels like mine was the most special.”

“He gave us the most beautiful childhood, he gave his mother unconditional love and respect, he was a father to my khala and my mother’s soul mate. He never complained. He spoke kindly. He was invested in your life and wrote extensively to you when he felt strongly about something. He didn’t miss a single ‘ Good morning precious’ msg. He gave us laughter and music. He gave me Kishpa and Aly bhai. But most of all he gave us my angel Mani… his ‘Jannoo’ as he called her. It’s been two weeks since you left us.. still this is tough to write, tougher than I imagined…,” she added.

“We all miss you Mamu.. always will.. I’m sure you’re in the arms of nana and Nani, with your baby umer cuddled beside you. Ameen. Please do make a prayer for my mamu- Akber Khan – when you read this.”
