“I feel Naya’s energy constantly telling me, 'Mamma, be happy. Don’t cry. I’m OK. Go get Josey. Have fun.’ And I feel that it’s coming from her,” lei disse. “I literally wake up every morning, and it’s almost like a restart button, and I have to shake it off, one foot at a time. And here we are.”
The last time she saw her daughter was on a FaceTime call the morning of the tragedy.
“I missed two of her FaceTime calls, and I called her back. And we had a beautiful conversation. The sun was kissing her face and she was just beautiful,” lei disse. “She had a white, beautiful swimming suit on and she was glowing.”
They discusssed how the water was turning “choppy.” Later that day, two detectives alerted her that Rivera was missing.
“It was almost like a force. I don’t know what it was, but I literally was just pushed backwards. I just ran backwards, if you can imagine, just screaming and I ended up in the bathroom. I slammed the door, I was on the floor and I had to gather myself,” lei disse.
Finding her daughter was “a relief, in un modo,” lei disse.
Previtire also thanked searchers, describing them as “overflowing with kindness.”
Rivera’s little sister, Nickayla Rivera, detto “GMA” “if we could go back, we’d hug a little bit harder.”
Naya’s little brother, Mychal, ha detto in una dichiarazione: “One year without you, one year closer to when we will meet you again. Your endless energy lives on. May you continue to rest so graciously, Naya.”
