FAMILY and friends of the late Shannon Wasserfal gathered at the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Kuisebmond for her funeral service.
The funeral on Saturday morning follows a very emotional memorial service that was held in the rugby stadium of Narraville on Friday evening.
During the church service family and friends gave heart-wrenching testimony of the young woman that departed from the world too soon.
The Governor of the Erongo Region, Neville Andre while paying his respects, echoed the sentiments of the family and added that young people should strive to live to reach their full potential and avoid situations where their family eventually has to gather at the side of an open grave.
After the church service, the funeral procession moved to the Kuisebmond cemetery where the body of the young mother of a little boy was finally laid to rest.
