    My heart goes out to your family. My deepest condolences to Ocean and your family. I know you had been going through some tough times before you left Ontario. You contacted me about being in our Canadian Hotties photo shoots and came out to our events and was always full of life. Thanks for always being straight up and down to earth with me. I admired you for being so beautiful and so down to earth.

    Until we meet again Dakota, You and Desiree are in heaven watching down over us and your children. 😢
    May you R.I.P. and watch over Ocean and guide him and protect him. Thanks again for letting us in as a part of your life. 😢
