Bre May shared her condolences for Quimyre Rolland in facebook post. She stated that:
I’m not gonna get up here & write paragraphs about what could’ve, should’ve or would’ve happened. I’m also not gonna front like me & Q had a interpersonal relationship as we became adults; everyone goes their separate ways as we get older but I will comment on the relationship we had when we were kids.We grew up in church together, had almost every class together & shared a lot of the same friends. It would be a lie for anyone who graduated in 2015 to say that Quimyre didn’t have a lasting impression on you; regardless of what it was. She was never scared to be herself & that meant with every new era or discovery of self she committed to it full throttle. A true Alien Superstar.I remember her being so protective of her sisters & her brother; even as kids they could fight & bicker but they had each others back 100% against all odds. They loved each other more than anything in the world.I wish nothing but love & comfort to her sisters & her brothers at this time. Rest easy, Q.D’ava Jones Dasmyn Dara Rolland I pray for strength & a continuous flooding of love for y’all. 💖P.S. Her sisters have set up a go fund me to help with costs – please donate what you can if you can. Will post the link in the comments.
Quimyre Rolland’s obituary and funeral plans will be released by the family, allowing the community to come together, celebrate her life, and find solace in remembering the warmth and caring nature of the beloved “Kookie.”
