The body of Ms Ramadan was found last Friday after a welfare check was called to the Sapphire Apartments at Labrador, discovering a 53-year-old man’s body also inside the apartment.
“We were extremely close growing up; we had the same friends throughout most of our lives, worked together at some stages in our lives,” Ms Ramadan said.
“Nothing breaks our hearts more than having a world that no longer has her in it,” she added.
9News understands that Ms Ramadan had been in a relationship with the man found in the apartment for a decade, before moving to the Gold Coast from Victoria about three years ago.
“We all felt safe having her life in her carer’s hands,” Ms Ramadan said.
Lordy’s brother Alex has also set up a fundraising page to help bring her body back home to family in Victoria.
“Trying to raise some money to help my elderly parents cover the costs of bringing (Lordy’s) body home to VIC and giving her the farewell she deserves,” the fundraiser states.
