A recorded friend of TikTok’s star Dazhariaa Quint Noyes—who committed suicide at the age of 18 on Monday—shared a touching memory of his late girlfriend.
Mike—who goes through @finessekidmike on TikTok—has shared a short montage of video clips and photographs depicting them hugging, smiling, kissing, cuddling and hanging out together in a collection that has been viewed more than 2.5 million times.
“I still love you. I think it’s time for me to let go,” says a female digital narrator as the images stream by and a version of the song “Heal” plays in the background. “Thank you for the memories that we made together. You are not my person anymore,” followed by a sad-face emoji, then continuing, “So if we are meant to be, we will find each other again.”
Mike simply captioned the post, “God bless her and her next.”
Rising star Dazhariaa’s death was confirmed by her parents on social media and in other media coverage.
On Tuesday, Dazhariaa’s father, Joseph Santiago, posted his own video tribute on TikTok, which was captioned, “I just want to thank everyone for their love and support of my daughter. Unfortunately she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place.”
And her mother, Jennifer Shaffer, left her own tribute on Facebook, writing, “I’m so heartbroken that I can’t really believe you’re going, I wish I’d been waiting for you to say it was a joke, but it’s not that I wish I could have died instead of u…deleted my angel. Everyone is concerned about our hard days, but never talking about the good times#babygirldee”
The teenager—who lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana—recorded her life on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. Many of her fans have mourned her death on social media.
“Rest In Peace gorgeous, this makes me so sad to hear that this happened,” said one commenter on YouTube. “Your we’re definitely my favorite YouTube, tiktoker. It breaks my hurt so much to hear that this happened.it’s going to take me a while to get over that fact that this happened. This honestly broke my hurt so much.”
On Wednesday, a GoFundMe account was set up, reportedly with a note from her father, which read in part, “I only wish she would have spoken to me about her stress and the thoughts of suicide.”
