Friends of a murdered aid worker have been paying tribute to the woman who "died doing what she loved".
Gayle Williams was shot on the streets of Afghanistan while walking to work on October 20. Police reports said two men pulled up on a motorcycle and killed the aid worker in broad daylight before speeding off.
Sandra Lambert, of Maricas Avenue, Harrow, worked with Ms Williams for more than a year at Whittlesea High School, which is now called Kingsley High School, in Whittlesea Road, Harrow.
Ms Williams was a member of agency staff who performed physiotherapy at the school, which is for children with profound multiple learning difficulties aged 11 to 19.
Mrs Lambert said of her: "She was a bubbly person and very devoted to her faith, but she never pushed it on anyone.
"What I remember about her is her love of chocolate and the smile on her face. I shall really miss her."
Mrs Lambert, who retired in 2006, worked as a teaching assistant in the same class as Ms Williams and the two stayed in touch after she left the school.
The last time the 61-year-old saw her friend was in February when she visited England.
She said: "Whenever she was in the country or on holiday she would come and visit me and when I last saw her she was so happy.
"I was so shocked when I heard what happened. She knew that it was a dangerous place but it was something she wanted to do.
"Not many people can say they died doing what they loved."
Mrs Lambert attended the memorial service for the charity worker, which took place in Ruislip Baptist Church, in Manor Way, last Thursday. More than 70 people filled the venue, which had sweets strew across the pews, paying homage to Ms Williams' love of chocolate.
Yvonne Cooley, of The Greenway, also remembers Ms Williams at the school.
The 58-year-old said: "She was a lovely person, I have not got a bad word to say about her.
"She was very good with the children."
After teaching at the Harrow school Ms Williams went on to do placements across London. Nearly two years ago she joined SERVE Afghanistan, a UK-based charity specialising in working with people with disabilities.
The Taliban accepted responsibility for the murder, saying she was trying to convert Muslims to Christianity, a claim denied by SERVE Afghanistan.
