In June 2018, an International makeup artist, Buntricia Bastian went viral after she said her final goodbyes on Instagram as her health deteriorated.
She had written on Instagram as thus; “It is with deep sorrow and much regret that I must say goodbye to all. My lungs are gone and my heart is only working at 30%. I for the first time have ran out of words to say other than I love you and I already miss you.”
“IF I could put all the love that I feel right this minute from the people that I have already said my goodbyes to I would live to be 150 years. Nigeria my husband is bringing my ashes home so welcome him. It has been my honor and I am truly humbled to have touched so many of yours lives. To be honest me calling you to say goodbye to you is quite selfish on my part this way I leave you better than I came full of your love. I love ?? you more than you will ever know. Talk Soon Buntricia”
9 months after, Bastian lost the battle after it was announced by her daughter, that she died in the morning of February 15th 2019.
Her daughter identified as Roxanne Nicole Crayton confirmed her death in a Instagram video saying, ‘today at 9:45am, my mother passed away’.
May her gentle soul rest in peace!
