Despite her trials and tribulations, she had a bright light when she came on stage to dance.”

Inaba continued, “Every time she performed, there was a sense of complete joy and a celebration of life. It was pure. And it was special.✨❤️’

She added: “We had reached out a few times to do her podcast, but we never followed up. I am so heartbreaking for her and for those who love her. It is a tragedy in the broadest sense of the word. Not only for her, but also for the people who were injured and lost things in this incident. Lives are forever changed.’

Inaba also revealed that she has to “swallow the tears that want to flow” when she thinks of her boyfriend “in that burning car, wondering what happened just before the accident.”

“From the outside it looks like there was some kind of emotional distress. Pain. Panic. Fear. frustration. disorientation. sadness. I don’t know… none of us know,” she wrote. “Anne, I just wanted to say that I’m grateful to have seen you. You have had a great impact on many of us, not only with your talent, but also with your free spirit.’
