Late TikTok star Dazhariaa Quint Noyes’ boyfriend Mike shared emotional memory of his late girlfriend who committed suicide at age 18 on Monday, and her death was however, confirmed by her parents on social media and in other media coverage.
Mike, who goes by @finessekidmike on TikTok — posted a short montage of video clips and photos that shows them hugging, smiling, kissing, cuddling and hanging out together in a compilation that has been viewed more than 2.5 million times.
“I still love you. I think it’s time for me to let go,” says a female digital narrator as the images stream by and a version of the song “Heal” plays in the background. “Thank you for the memories that we made together. You are not my person anymore,” followed by a sad-face emoji, then continuing, “So if we are meant to be, we will find each other again.” As he captioned the post, “God bless her and her next.”
On Tuesday, Dazhariaa’s father, Joseph Santiago, posted his own video tribute on TikTok, which was captioned, “I just want to thank everyone for their love and support of my daughter. Unfortunately, she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place.”
And her mother, Jennifer Shaffer, left her own tribute on Facebook, writing, “I’m so heartbroken I really can’t believe you’re going I wish I was waiting on you to say it was a prank but its not i wishing could have died instead of u …rip my angel. Everyone talks about our bad times but never talk about the good times#babygirldee”

“Rest In Peace gorgeous, this makes me so sad to hear that this happened,” said one commenter on YouTube. “Your we’re definitely my favorite YouTube, tiktoker.
