KUALA LUMPUR: The mother of singer and actress Linda Rafar, Rasimah Abd Rahman, was laid to rest at the Seksyen 21 Muslim cemetery in Shah Alam this morning.

Diana added that her mother had gone through several challenging moments which included the amputation of her left hand due to severe infection last month.
She explained that the whole family also got to see Rasimah before she passed away. Rasimah is survived by six children and 17 grandchildren.
