May you rest in peace Khadija Saye. God bless your beautiful soul. My heart breaks today. I mourn the tragic loss of a wonderful young woman pic.twitter.com/KdIPs34FvA— David Lammy (@DavidLammy) June 16, 2017 A brilliant young artist is believed to have died in the Grenfell Tower inferno, along with her mother.The grief-stricken family of Khadija Saye, 24, and Mary Mendy, 54, who lived on the 20th floor, have posted tributes on social media.David Lammy MP was well-known to Ms Saye and she worked for his wife, who spoke to her on Facebook as smoke engulfed her flat. She said: “She was on Facebook saying she was unable to get out of the flat, that the smoke was so thick. She was saying she just can’t get out and ‘Please pray for me. There’s a fire in my council block. I can’t leave the flat. Please pray for me and my mum.’”At one point she said she’d just tried to leave again and said it was impossible. She said she felt like she was going to faint. Someone asked ‘Did you try going down low with towels?’ She said ‘Yes, it’s in my room’. I’m assuming she meant the smoke.” Khadija was a talented artist and her work is currently on display at the Venice Biennale. I recently went to see it https://t.co/FKYfJTzYrl— David Lammy (@DavidLammy) June 16, 2017 He tweeted: “May you rest in peace Khadija Saye. God bless your beautiful soul. My heart breaks today.

The cousin of Khadija Saye wrote a touching tribute on Facebook: “I’m in shock & speechless. I just can’t believe that my cousin’s gone! If you knew Khadijah you’ll know that she had a heart of gold she was always happy. She was so intelligent, sooo creative and had so much talent. “Khadija Saye our mums use to dress us the same and use to call us twins because our birthdays were a month apart. I always use to tease you & say that I’ll release all our baby pictures but I never thought I’ll be doing it in such bad circumstances. I remember the days we use to argue over who was Beyoncé & you always use to say that I was Kelly because I had short hair when i was younger.”One day I cried because I wanted to be Beyoncé so bad & you gave me a big hug & said I’ll be Beyoncé forever. We spent our days learning S Club 7 dance routines & I still remember those dance Routines lool.”I use to look forward to spending the summer holidays at your house because that meant being Beyoncé & performing at the Notting hill carnival.”I won’t post the all the pictures of us at the carnival because those costumes were soo embarrassing. Year after year we put up those costumes on & it was one of my best memories with you. When I was younger I use to be so fascinated by the #Grenfelltower because it was so high up & had 24 floors and mine just had 4. Going to that tower as a child was so exciting. May you rest in perfect peace.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings.
