She was such a kind lovely woman,” she said.”Now to hear this, it’s a shock I tell you. The reality sank in. “The last time I spoke to them was New Year and Christmas. I spoke to them on the phone, you know, to wish them well. “I was going to give John a call this morning. We were neighbours from when John was a little baby, I’ve known him all his life.”She was a lovely lady. I just can’t believe what I’m hearing this morning.” Aysha Frade, one of the victims of the Westminster terror attack, was “a highly regarded and loved” member of staff at DLD College London, her principal Rachel Borland said.Mrs Borland said in a statement: “We are all deeply shocked and saddened at the news that one of the victims yesterday was a member of our staff, Aysha Frade. All our thoughts and our deepest sympathies are with her family. We will be offering every support we can to them as they try to come to terms with their devastating loss.
