She was my most beautiful and memorable inspiration growing up. Mesmerising. Her eyes so pure. Her smile so innocent. Ahead of her time in style. I truly wish she had invested in people who valued her better. Pray for her to find what she was seeking in her life 🌷⚘— AnuMeera (@AnuMeera2024) January 21, 2020
