  5. So very sorry to hear of Samyka’s tragic death. We knew her as a child in school here in Brooklyn. Her classmates in PS 99 and in the Girl Scouts loved to be with her. She was good friends with my daughter Amanda and her mother was such a wonderful person, too. My deepest condolences to her family.
