"Having to wait three days to bury Deborah made it even more hard for the family" Debora's sister.

Deborah Fraser's sister told the Daily Sun The family's grief was compounded by having to wait three days to bury Deborah.

However, "We thank God for giving us the strength to face this difficult time," Lorna said.

Deborah Fraser, a gospel legend, has found her final home with Him.

Deborah was finally laid to rest on Tuesday, May 24, after the recent KZN flooding had ended, at the exclusive Lala Kahle Cemetery in Hillcrest, west of Durban.

The funeral was set for Saturday, May 21, following a service at The Station Urban Event Space attended by several prominent musicians, family, and friends.

Her family, however, was forced to return her remains to the morgue after her grave was flooded, and they had to wait until the weather cleared before burying her.

She was finally buried in an emotional private ceremony attended by her family, close friends, and some artists.

Deborah's sister, Lorna, stated that the delay was unavoidable due to inclement weather, but she is now buried.

"We will remember Deborah fondly." She adored us and our children.

"She never came home empty-handed because she knew we had children waiting for her," she explained.

Now I will take care of her children.

Family member Selwyn Fraser expressed his gratitude on behalf of the Shabalala and Fraser families to all who helped them through this difficult period.

"As we lay our mother to rest in her last resting place, I beg everyone not to turn their backs on us, but instead allow us to be together," he added.

Bishop Vusi Dube told the Daily Sun that it was unusual to have the funeral and burial on different days." We thank God that the day has finally come when they can finally bury their loved one and get on with their lives," he said.

Deborah died on Sunday, May 15 at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital after a short illness, leaving behind her two children, Nkosana and Aaliyah.

The Albany Bayombona hitmaker died shortly after completing her fourteenth gospel album, which was due out later this year to bring comfort to her fans.
