Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood 1940-2005

Endon's last words: Take care of everybody

Even during her last hours, Datin Paduka Seri Endon's thoughts were of the people and her family.

“Take care of everybody and the family,” she advised her husband Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and family members gathered round her bedside.

“I promised her that I would do it,” a weeping Rahmah Mahmood, Endon's sister, told The Star.

It rained the whole day yesterday as the nation mourned the passing of Endon.

Tens of thousands of people – from royalty, presidents, prime ministers to ordinary people – paid their last respects to our Beloved First Lady, sharing their grief with the family at the Prime Minister's residence, the Putrajaya Mosque and the burial ground.

Many wept openly at the great loss the nation has suffered.
