II. Describing In the eyes of relatives Kiea and Dlava are close friends and gentle like angels


The additional information about Kiea McCann and Dlava Mohamed provides a glimpse into the vibrant lives they lived and the devastating loss their families and community are experiencing. The preparations they had at home for their big night, including food, champagne, and balloons, show how much they were looking forward to the event.

Kiea’s parents and family describe her as a stunning, bubbly, and intelligent girl who was loved by everyone. It’s clear that she had a close bond with her best friend, Dlava, and they were inseparable for years. Their friendship transcended cultural backgrounds, as Dlava’s family originally came from Syria.

Kiea’s passion for motorbikes and her plans to study childcare in college show her diverse interests and ambitions. Being the fifth of 10 children, she was part of a large and loving family, and her absence will undoubtedly be deeply felt by her siblings, nephews, grandparents, and other family members.

The tributes and messages from friends and online well-wishers speak of Kiea’s infectious smile and her impact on the lives of those around her. It’s evident that she was cherished and loved by many.

Meanwhile, Dlava’s family is also experiencing immense grief and is being comforted by friends during this difficult time. The outpouring of support from the community is heartwarming, and it shows the depth of empathy and care for those affected by the tragedy.

Our thoughts continue to be with the families and friends of both Kiea and Dlava as they mourn their loss. May they find the strength to navigate through these challenging days and lean on the support of their loved ones and the community during this period of sorrow.
