Shikiri, Maia’s siblings, our family and me appreciate your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.”
Keyshawn Johnson, Jr. remembers and honors his sister, sharing with the world her legacy and the very special impact she made on him:

I just wish we were as close as we used to be. I’m sorry for that and I love you so much. I will see you soon 👼🏽💙 #LLMHJ“.
