I am Joni's best friend and although I've been away from Nova Scotia for many years I've always thought about her and my little nieces and nephews. I wish I could have been around to get to know Miya I know if Joni raised her she was a beautiful girl inside and out. I love you Harris family 💕.
I just want to send my heartfelt condolences to the parents and family. I'm hurt by this tragedy as its been on my heart and mind for days.
I want you to know that my prayers are with you at this time.
