"It just happened all of a sudden," Devon told MyLondon. "At least she didn't have to suffer." Devon will miss the light she brought into his life adding that she was "the most loving, caring, and genuine person" and the love of his life. As he broke down in tears remembering the woman he almost married he said, "She would go all out for you and she was the most hard-working. She was always happy. Whatever she was going through she was always happy. She was the love of my life. She was always the best part of my life." He is still struggling with her loss and is in disbelief. "I can't stop being reminded of what happened," he told the outlet. "Seeing everything and still I'm in disbelief. After all that time, we were finally getting married. We were preparing for the rest of our life, and all of a sudden, it gets taken away. It was the toughest thing."
Her sister Isha Daley, 37, remembers Nadia as "a mini rebel" who was "very lively and feisty." "She was a very entertaining person," Isha told the outlet. "She just wanted to be happy. A little fire cracker. She was very beautiful. Absolutely stunning. And she loved life, loved to travel." The family believes that health problems caused her death. The 33-year-old had problems with her liver and kidneys in the past and medical experts believe liver disease contributed to Nadia's death.
In a GoFundMe she wrote that "Nadia Joseph-Gosine tragically passed away in the arms of the love of her life, Devon Gosine whilst on holiday in Trinidad." The devasted sibling added that the family was raising funds to cover the cost of the cremation and to bring her 10-year-old son home as he cannot travel home alone. In an update, Isha thanked everyone who contributed. She wrote, "It is so lovely to know that there are such a kind and caring people out there willing to help us heal our family after such a tragic situation Just to let you know we are a third of the way to our goal total so please continue to share and donate I'm so grateful to all of those who have taken interest in our campaign and for all the support given to our family love you all."
