Nickayla Rivera, Naya's younger sister, posted a post full of love on Instagram to remember her "Losing you, I found so much of you inside me"
It is said that "the death of a brother or sister is rarely foreseen and never accepted". We are preparing for the loss of parents but that of siblings is almost always a painful and difficult to overcome tear.
Nickayla Rivera, Naya's younger sister, knows something about it. From one day to the next she saw herself tearing off a part of herself, deprived of what had been her guide and point of reference for years.
Nickayla who is a model and together with the other brother Mychal Rivera (football player who played in the Oakland Raiders) was very close to her sister, she published two tender shots on her Instagram account that portray her with Naya, dedicating words full of love to her:
There are no words to describe my love for you. Side by side or miles away, our connection was endless. Our unbreakable bond. We were completely opposite, but at the same time the same. Yin and Yang. I never imagined that by losing you, I would find so much of you inside myself.
I've never known a life without you and I still can't imagine it. My world is turned upside down. But in spite of everything, all that we were will still be. I will always look at you with the same eyes as when I was a child
My "shmaya", I will love you for eternity and I miss you every second of my life.
