Read some of their heart-felt posts below.
This can’t be real. I’m at a total loss for words. My heart hurts. You were one of my best friends and favorite roomie. I’m shaking and holding back tears as I type this. Such a beautiful soul gone too soon. Rip baby girl @mismorningstar I love you 💔🙏🏻 Go fund me account for her is in my bio: gf.me/u/bdg3vu
I love this photo of us even more now since it was taken from your camera. This was back in 2014 in Houston when we were vibing at club Throne and smoking hookah while drinking just having a heart to heart convo. We had so much in common, our age, nationality (part viet), our past career (hair and makeup and attending).. I’ll always remember our little heart to heart convo. My heart goes out to your boyfriend, your family and close friends in Canada. You’ll forever be remembered and you hold a special place in my heart @mismorningstar rest in paradise babygirl and I’ll constantly post your modeling photos here and there to relive your passion which was modeling in which you were so great at it! You’ll never be forgotten “buddy” ❤️❤️❤️ #RIPMorningStar #MorningMeetoos
We lost another wonderful and super sweet person today. One I gladly was able to call a friend. We’ve known each other for around 7 years and I was lucky enough to be able to spend a lot of time with her. Whether we were at an event or just hanging out afterwards or happened to be in the same town, we always seemed to make time for each other. I have so many memories or her and I. She was a sweetheart and a goofball and I am so very sad to wake up to this news. I still find photos of her I didn’t even know she took on my phone when we were together. I just can’t believe this is happening again to such a young friend. 😢😢😢 you will forever be remembered and we all miss you. My condolences and best wishes go out to her family and if you need anything at all please don’t hesitate to ask. #ripmorning #rip #morningstar #mismorningstar #morningmeetoos #angel #gonebutneverforgotten #passed #missyou #missyoualready #sweetheart #friends #lost #love #thoughts #thoughtsandprayers
I am in total shock right now and in disbelief!! 😞 @mismorningstar – I’m so speechless and wish this was NOT true…😶 You were an amazing & beautiful human being!!! We had our moments, our fun, happy, laugh all the time moments…🎉 Where ever you are now, I wish you Peace, and I wish you to “”Rest in Paradise” 🙏🏿 I love you…#beautifulsoul
#RIP to one of the first models I ever shot with. Back when I used an NEX-5N for shoots. You will forever be missed. @mismorningstar was truly a blessing to us all. Was so looking forward to seeing you in the Bay this weekend 😢 Event Kuya Model Expo @thekuyas @buffdaddyabe Model: @officialraquelbasco
Babygirl… I miss you so much. My heart hurts and I am shaking. Since the day I met you, you were always a joy to be around. We had countless crazy adventures and memories together. I still can’t believe it… I was supposed to see you tomorrow… is it crazy of me to think I still will? You have an amazing soul and you will never be forgotten. Today in the import/car model industry, we lost someone beautiful who always lit up the room and was so down to earth. It won’t be the same without you…rest in paradise babygirl, take us back to when we really were in paradise… ❤❤❤😔🙏🏼 Love you, Morning
I don’t know what happened but I do know this world is a little less beautiful with out you. @mismorningstar I only had the pleasure of working with you once but you are still one of the nices girls i have meet. You were so nice and I didn’t even know you at the time. Over the years we kept in touch through IG and she would always spread love and uplift others. I didn’t know you that well but I know you will be missed. Life is short and we never know what could happen. Say a prayer for Morning, her friends family and fans that are dealing with her lose. And hug your loved ones and tell those that matter to you that they do. Your beautiful soul will always be remembered🦋 RIP @mismorningstar

COMPLETE DISBELIEF. I can’t process the news like I’m waiting for a sign where it’s like “surprise she’s okay she’s alive & well” But I can’t believe we’ve lost you. You had such a beautiful & pure soul & were nice to everyone around you. I’m not about to list all memories we made in our times together, but for sure I’ll be replaying them in my mind all day in remembrance of you. ☁️👼🏼☀️☁️ Rest in beautiful peace, love you & miss you babygirl 💔. #RIP #Morningstar #angel
A few years ago I shot with this beautiful lady. She was very kind and had a great energetic personality. Easily one of the easiest people to work with. About a year before I shot with her, I remember seeing her back at my first car show/event. She walked around and handed everyone her business card with a smile since she was from Canada and was trying to make her mark here in LA. I saw her hustle and I saw her grow. I still don’t believe this is true and I’m still in shock, but rest in peace Morning. I’m not sure what exactly happened, but finding out by reading many “rest in peace” comments and posts just feels so unreal. My condolences to her family 😔 – Morning Star // @mismorningstar Photo by: @leotrajanophoto
I can’t believe the news right now 😔💔 I remember meeting you back in Hawaii & I was only 19 at the time… you were one of the most sweetest girl I have ever met. I remember we were working at the same bar together for an event & we unexpectedly had matching outfits & you wanted to take pics together 😭 All those drunk conversations in the bathroom we had 🙁 I’m sad I wasn’t able to see you again after that! But I can never forget how kind you were to me. You will always be my favorite Canadian model 💖 Rest in love morning 🙏🏻
@mismorningstar 🙏🏽☁️⭐️ Rest In Peace to someone who took the time to see good in every person . I don’t know what happened , but I only hope that you will be able to shine your light down on us . You were always down to make the best of any day and night . Never turned down opportunity to be around new /old friends . You made people come together . It is really crazy to hear about this today . Waking up to see this loss. I just want to say thank you for who you were on the earth . You made me feel comfortable in the darkest places . You told me things out of the kindness of your heart . You believed that I could make it in anything I want and I won’t forget that conversation in the bathroom of Light night club haha we partied hard and promised only to live life the way god intended us to . You brought beauty and genuine heart 💕 and that’s hard to find in this world today .

Life can be so short, sadly we have learned that too many times in our lives. Chin up, stay positive and unite to overcome such pain.
