She took to her Twitter account saying, “Death has a way of changing people. Suddenly we all realise how precious life is and how fragile we really are. U may not able to reach out 2 everyone but be a light in the corner where u are. People may forget a face or even a name, but will not forget how you made them feel”.
Felicia Opare Saforo left behind 4 children, of which Jessica falls last. She seems to have had a very special bond with her mum.
Tributes have started pouring from family, friends and fans.
On her mother’s birthday which was January 27, Jessica showered her with praises stressing that, she was lucky to have her as a mother. She particularly described her faith, which the radio personality obviously has immensely benefitted as infectious.
“You make me want to truly and fully surrender all my burdens unto this God you have encouraged me to know. You tell me that nothing can prevent you from seeking Him and believing in His Word”, the strong-willed presenter observed.
The award winning broadcaster took advantage of the moment to ask for Gos’s abundant blessings and longevity for her mum as she turns a year older.

As we grow your challenges become more apparent and our love and appreciation for you grow by the second. God has done so much. God has brought you far. I don't know if you know this but, your faith is so strong it's infectious. You make me want to truly and fully surrender ALL my burdens unto this God you've encouraged me to know. You tell me that nothing can prevent you from seeking Him and believing in His word. In many ways mother…. you are my beacon of light in a cruel world. Today I commit you into God's hands. I share in your victories, losses and pains. I share in your joys. There is only one prayer on my lips for you. That the good Lord will smile upon you and answer your innermost prayer. I pray for healing in your body. I pray for strength to go on. I love you mum. This message is from the depths of my soul. May God grant you many more years. May God's will be done in your life.
