“Professional model, and lead dancer for the group RockFam, the young Ywana Paul, passed away early this morning, following a terrible road accident at Delmas 40 b. A driver having lost control of the bus he was driving took this flower who was just starting to shine.
Faced with this loss, we are sending our sympathies to her family, her friends and colleagues from RockFam, for whom it will be difficult to fill the void that she will leave in their hearts and contributions. Adieu Ywana.” From www.Roroli.com
