«I just know that Arrayah had a special hand in choosing this sweet girl to add to our family! We are beyond blessed, beyond grateful that God chose to give us another girl! We miss Arrayah every second of every day, but I rest knowing she’ll be the best angel big sister to little miss Allanah!»

«This has been the hardest two weeks of our lives,» she wrote on Instagram. «And we couldn’t have done it or started to get through this without you. Our Arrayah sun was and is our world and to know that she has touched so many lives is very moving.»
Players, including Barrett’s former Bucs teammate Tom Brady, showed their support for the Barrett family.
«Shaq is one of the toughest guys I know mentally,» Bucs head coach Todd Bowles said.
