Taking to her socials, Nickayla penned a moving tribute to her "Shmaya", saying her world turned upside down following the accident. "There are no words to describe my love for you. Side by side or miles apart, our connection is infinite. Our bond is unbreakable. We were complete opposites, yet simultaneously the same. The yin to my yang. I never knew that by losing you, I would find so much of you in myself," she wrote.

"I’ve never known a life without you in it & still can’t imagine it. My world is turned upside down. But through it all, everything we were, we are still. I’ll always look at you with the same eyes as I did when I was young.⁣"

"My shmaya, I’ll love you for eternity & miss you every second of my life."

The singer-actress died in a boating accident last July 8 in Lake Piru in South California. Her 4-year-old son Josey Hollis Dorsey was found by authorities alone on the boat hours after she went missing.
