After the increasingly tragic circumstances surrounding the suicide of Jacintha Saldanha - the nurse who took her own life after being the victim of a prank call regarding Kate Middleton's stay at the hospital at which she was employed - have continued to be uncovered, the woman's body has now arrived in India.
According to reports, the 46-year-old's remains are now in Mangalore in Karnataka, where she was raised, and Saldanha's husband Benedict Barboza and their daughter Lisha, 14, and son Junal, 16, will travel there to attend her funeral service, which is said be expecting as many as 5,000 attendees at Our Lady of Health Church in the town of Shirva.
Furthermore, the hospital in Mangalore at which she studied nursing is reportedly planning to create a memorial award in her honor.
We're glad to hear that her memory will live on through something so positive.
However, our heart, thoughts, and prayers still go out to this woman's husband, children, and loved ones at they still struggle to make sense of this horrific tragedy and come to terms with what must be irreversible grief.
May she R.I.P.
