MH17 crash: Tears over Twitter

A Malaysian teenager's posting on social media to her mother, chief stewardess Dora Shahila Kassim on board Malaysian Airlines MH17, has drawn the attention of netizens.

"I lost my super hero. I lost my best friend. I lost my whole life," 15-year-old Diyana Yazeera posted on Friday as she thought of her mother.

She had been posting a series of heartbreaking messages to her mother on Instagram and Twitter.

Ms Dora, 47, was one of two chief stewardesses on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which crashed in Ukraine near the Russian border on Thursday.

"Mummy, it's so hard to digest it all. You were my strength but now that you're gone, who is? I love you but Allah loves you more.

"Remember that I'm always here, sending you my prayers. I'll see you soon, Mum. I love you," Diyana wrote on Instagram on Friday, reported New Straits Times.

The student at Tunku Kurshiah College, Seremban, had taken to Instagram and Twitter via her handle @DiyanaYazeera to express her grief.

"You were the one who took charge of everything. You were the strongest among all of us.

"You gave me everything that I needed and not what I wanted. You stood firm on your own grounds. You gave life to the house. You're my fun, hip Mummy. You're a fighter. You're a giver. You're a lover. You stepped up to the challenge.

"You were my everything. Your departure hit me hard... I'm sorry I couldn't grant your wish of taking you to my graduation day. But I know you'll be up there watching. I know you're here and you can see me but its devastating that I can't see you.

"No matter the situation, you're the most wonderful mother in the world. Have a nice long rest, Mum."
