"I'm very sorry for your loss of precious Shanti, I don't know you; but I hope that you will accept my heartfelt sympathy to you in your loss. Just this past Sept, my very precious and beloved Mom died, and I'm not trying to say my pain is the same as yours. But what helps me is knowing that my Mom isn't suffering and that I have the hope to see her and be with her again; to hug her and hold her close! These verses continue to bring me comfort and I hope they do the same for you. (Acts 24:15; Eccl. 9:11b; James 1:13; Isa. 33:24; Rev. 21:4, 5; Psalm 37:10, 11, 29) Take care, Sincerely, Cindy"

You are always loved always remembered and never forgotten. RIP Pretty Little Angel"

"Dear shanti,
I am truly sorry for the mean things I've done and said
I wish I could take them back but you didn't let me hurt u
U said you were far to gorgeous to be took away by jealousy
And you still make me breathless and look at you every body smiles and shoot to the stars when they look at u not to mention your seat and stage at the grammy's is waiting for you as an angel to take ur spot light with your style and music as a matter a fact your helping me  stay strong wit my music group and your taking up as our leader"

"Hi Shanti,
Remember me? It's Katie. Do you remember when I came down with Anita, Shawn, Josh, Sam, and Damian to hangout? Sam, Josh, you, your brother and your friends all played in my big red blazer. You were all playing cops and robbers. You were all running around and pretending to drive my car and laughing.. Some of you were on the roof of my car. Some "locked up" in the back of my car. I remember when it was your turn to play the cop. Girl you played one hell of a sassy cop! You weren't taking no for an answer! I remember later that day after we stopped playing in my car I heard you and your friends in the basement. You were singing your heart out with no regrets, and it was beautiful. You sing like a pro! You're ganna make it one day, you know. You're ganna be a star!
I remember the first day I met you. Do you remember that? I walked through the door and set my purse down and was just standing there, unsure of what to do. You came high-tailing it around the corner and you stopped. You looked up at me and said so blankly "Who are you?" I said "My names Katie! I'm Damian's friend." you looked at me and said "Are you his girlfriend?" I laughed and said no that we were just friends from school and you said "oh" and ran off outside to play. It was the cutest thing.
You know, I keep hearing everyone say their goodbyes to you. I'm not sure why!! I can still hear you singing, which means you're still here with us! And I can still see you smiling so vividly in my head. I can still see you with your hand on your hip smiling because you were happy you caught the bad guy in your game of cops and robbers.
You're not gone. No. You're still here. And we can all feel it. Keep singing, girl! We're all singing along with you."
