Actress Nayaa Rivera’s family is remembering the star one year after her dearth.
The actress tragically went missing on July 8 last year on California’s Lake Piru, while boating with her son, Josey Hollis Dorsey.
Her son who is now five years, was later found alive, while Dorsey accidentally drowned according to reports. Her body was found five days later.
Naya’s younger sister Nickayla stated “Taking that one day at a time and living it to the fullest, loving each other to the fullest, and not regretting anything. Because I know if we could go back, we’d hug a little bit harder”
Her little brother Mychal added in a statement, “ One year without you, one year closer to when we will meet you again. Your endless energy lives on. May you continue to rest graciously, Naya.”
Naya’s mom also described how she feels her daughter’s presence in her life.
“I feel Naya’s energy constantly telling me, ‘Mom, be happy. Go get Josey, have fun’. And I feel that it’s coming from her.” Said Naya’s Mom.
Naya’s mom added that she would like her daughter’s legacy to be one that teaches people to love and care.
She also advised that if something is not right, try fix it or speak up and not just live life.
