‘That is so sad and heart breaking. She was a beautiful beautiful lady,’ one person replied.
‘Such a wonderful person. Fly high Anik and may you rest in peace,’ another added.
‘She is the most amazing person I saw her in March. My heart breaks,’ a third comment read.
One woman wrote that it is the second tragedy to rock the family in the past 12 months after Ms Mesari lost a son last year.
Friends from Australia have rallied together to set up a fundraiser via her Facebook page to help her loved ones.
‘Anik was the kindest, happiest and most loyal Balinese lady I have ever meet and will be sadly missed,’ Natalie Baldwin wrote.
‘Unfortunately in Bali they don’t get government assistance like in Australia so if you can help with even $5 it would be appreciated.’
‘I know it’s a crazy time right now but this is the least I can do for such a beautiful person.
Those wishing to donate can transfer directly to Ms Mesari’s family’s bank account listed on her Facebook page or by getting into contact with Ms Baldwin.
