Her attempts to mobilize the family of the deceased to come up with a burial plan have been futile.


"Its like wameniachia mwili to bury because up to now hawana plan na nikipiga wananiambia tu bado, so it is hard on my side (From the look of things, they have abandoned me with the body because up to now there is no plan and nothing is forthcoming every time I call, so it is hard on my side)" she explained in an interview as quoted by a section of the press.

She is now appealing to well-wishers to come to her aid and burry her husband.

"It is hard on my side. Kindly assist me mobilise funds because I've been left alone and the burden is too heavy," Florence appealed.

The mother of one narrated that her proposal was to have her husband’s body leave the morgue on April 06 and the burial to take place on April 08.


This was however moved to April 15 due to what she termed lack of cooperation before being postponed yet again to a date that is yet to be confirmed.

Danny Miles succumbed to Cancer on Tuesday night March 21, after battling stage 4 sarcoma, a rare type of malignant (cancerous) tumour.
