The announcement, posted on the Dignity Memorial web page, provides few other details, however friends and family are invited to share memories of Aaliyah on the page.
Marta Zinga wrote: “I met Aaliyah through my Sunday School class at Calvary Worship Center. She came to my class full of joy and very talkative.
“We’ll miss her deeply. But with our hope that one day we’ll see her again.”
The page also includes a number of photos of a smiling Aaliyah posing for the camera, making a snow angel and cooking.
Following Aaliyah’s death, IHIT made a plea to the public for information about the girl’s activities on the day she was killed.
