    Hi to the Morrison family.
    Sadia got her start through me hiring her at Vibe Magazine. She was a force to be reckoned . Her vitality and spirit was infectious around the office. She learned the ropes very quickly. Soon she woulld be on most of the shoots. I still have call sheets with her name. My personal assistant at the time always looked out for her because I wanted her to thrive in fashion I had hoped she would follow her career path. I am proud that she did! I’ve always admired her style and funky, wonderful mane of hair. It was always different colors. When it wasn’t done it was wrapped in a scarf. Her style,sneakers,trousers,denim jackets with gromets. She had it going ON! I wanted her to be involved at every step of the photo shoot process. I often ministered to her as a born again christian. She was always aware that there are endless possibilities through HIM. She would tell me that she prayed all the time. I was really worried after Vegas but I still kept her in my prayers.
    She knew where I stood. The last time I saw Sadia was in harlem coming out of I-hop. She was telling me all the good jobs she is working on. She was working with athletes and ect. but I wanted to know how she was doing spiritually. I will miss her and I’m sorry she is gone.

    God Bless You!
    May you rest in Peace.
    Sadia

    Sadia, rest in peace?!. And to any woman or man reading this…know that you have the right to leave any situation. you have the right to live in peace without hating ass venomous mufuckaz trying to steal your glory and your joy. remember & act upon this for Sadia, who was as fabulous and kind and fun as they come. You will be missed for all that you are and all that you mean to free thinking, self sustained women on this planet, in the tradition…

    In the short months that I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sadia I grew to love her. I saw Sadia almost every single day over the last seven months. Sadia would come to the Hope Center and work in Cyber Cafe. Sadia was extremely talented and had a zest for life, she recently spoke deeply over the last two months about her spirituality and getting closer to God and finding her purpose in life. I would always encourage her to tap into her inner self by studying the Bible and other doctrines to get the understanding that she sought. Over three weeks ago Sadia came to me told me she got saved and I believe in my heart that she did. So without a doubt I know that GOD has taken our Dear ANGEL SADIA in his arms and will continue to protect her. Sadia will live through each of us who she encountered in her life her on earth and we must remember that GOD is in control and VENGENCE is HIS don’t worry JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL>

    Im Sadia’s close cousin Kathie-
    We all miss you and love you
    You’ll always be a star- accomplished so much and such a short period of time- it should only motivate us more

    Following up on John Moore’s comment… “She definitely was a force to be reckoned with “. She was one of my favorite interns @ Vibe. The last time I seen her was months back and my last words to her “I am so proud of you mama . You came (as a intern), saw, and conquered! I admire you for that!” Her response was “Thanks ma that means alot to me, now are you coming to my party or what?! You better be there! lol!”

    U will b missed babygirl

    I live in WIN CITY not sin city aka Las Vegas. JESUS was a winner and because HE WAS…WE ARE TOO. Please catch that in your spirit. I’m a Christian Talk Show Radio Host and I want to first give honor to God and to the wonderful family who raised, loved, supported and blessed this awesome vessel called “Sadia”. May God continue to bless you, heal your hearts, answer your many questions and dry your countless tears. I know the word of God tells us all…“Vengeance is mine, I will repay” – Romans 12:19. I never personally met this wonderful woman of God but I knew her spirit. My life is better because I visited this blog. I was able to pray for someone other than myself and reach out to people who are hurting more than me today. I thank you Lord for giving me an opportunity to serve in your Kingdom and to let the Morrison family know they did an excellent job with this precious gift of life you entrusted into their care. I’m trusting that your beloved daughter will do more in her death to lead people to Christ. Believe me she will minister from the grave. Her life nor her untimely death was not in vain. Please take comfort in knowing she is with God and if you are a Believer you will have an opportunity to join her in eternity as well. If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ get right, confess with your mouth and invite the Lord of Lords and King of Kings into your heart and your life. Rejoice! Sadia’s In Heaven! Praise Jesus! Thank You Lord SHE MADE IT!! Celebrate her life and not her death! Please give her the “HOLY GHOST HOMEGOING PARTY” she deserves. “SAVE THE LOST AT ALL COST”.

    I dont know her personally,but being a 21 year old ambitious women who is driven just like Sadia. They dont make young women like us anymore. Strong independent women who wants something out of life. I feel sorry because someone took that away from her.God bless her and family

  31. June 19, 2008 at 5:06 pm | #31

    My prayers have been sent and to the family…please know that GOD makes no mistakes. The person(s) that did this didn’t take her from her family & friends…that was a decision of the Lord. God saw that his garden was short one BEAutiful flower and she was the one.

    May God rest her soul and her family continue to be blessed!

    Peace & Blessings ~ tiadae

    I dont know Sadia and i never heard of her until today. But for some reason her death really bothered me. I can see in her eyes she was a great person full of ambition. It is very sad to see someone so special leave this earth in such a terrible way. She has some serious energy from bouncing off of her, because I took the time to research her and it lead me to this. And believe it or not this is my first public blog. So she is an angel cause she has a light so bright. May her soul R.I.P , and may the Creator give her family and friends the strength to get through this.

    this is a tragedy and its unfortunate that her life was cut so short. However, death is owed to us, so we need not worry about the length of our life on earth, but the seeds we have sown while we on earth. We are one people and we need to identify that and begin to live as one people rather than animals in the wild.

    I am a youth advocate who lends my voice to disadvantage, broken abuse teens and those who are struggling with their sexual identity, having to go on living among family and parent who do not accept their choice of partners. I’ve written a book, a parent, youth, teacher handbook that will be out this July, 2008 that is very powerful and can help us understand differences and how to deal with it.

    I have never heard of sadia but one thing for the family to remember is that god is in control. Whoever did this to her will burn in hell. It’s so sad that there are evil people in the world that would do this to someone. But always remember is that god sees everything and whoever did this will pay. GOD BLESS!!

  37. June 20, 2008 at 12:58 am | #37

    Im one of Sadia’s many cousins. She will be missed dearly. I just recently got back in contact with her through the infamous MYSPACE. (Gotta Love It…) But I’ve recently learned that she was an inspiration to alot of people She was doin her thing. I know how much Paul and Ronnie and the rest of the fam miss her. Its Sad to see her go but she’s in a way better place than this world. Sadia I miss you soooo much. I love you may you R.I.P

I love you guys and im here for you Paul say no more my dude you already know what it is mad at ya post bout getting the law involved though but i feel you sadia wasnt meant for this

  39. A FEW WORDS
    June 20, 2008 at 4:33 am | #39

    id like to tell the family that i know its hard to deal with even to accept your loved one is gone but if it comfort you i wanna say shes in a much better place.my brother was murdered and his killer still havent been caught i think about him all the time.ive learned to stop focusing on how he died and remember all the positive things he did while he was here.time does heal all wounds and you will allways have pain for her but in time your smiles when you talk and think about her will return.im not going to quote any scriptures but the word does say we mourn for those born and we rejoice for those that have returned back home to paradise.
    God Bless

  40. June 20, 2008 at 7:25 am | #40

    @Bronxriver

    Why are you mad at Paul (Sadia’s brother) for wanting to involve the law??? How else do you propose that this poor family/Sadia receive justice??

    Should Paul take the law in to his own hands and then risk being taken away and locked up by the State for the rest of his life. Perhaps even face the death penalty?

    The family are grief stricken and in turmoil. They’ve already brutally lost a family member to death, you want them to lose a second member to the State?

    Your ‘street ethics’ isn’t going to help them.

    I’ve known Sadia for a few years. Everytime I saw Sadia I’d say she is shining — I don’t know if it was the bright yellow jacket with the fishnet gloves or the flyest mohawk I’ve ever seen…..but Sadia always shined!! Sadia was the only person I knew that would rock the kind of boots that nobody would rock and look hot. I lost someone last year — killed on a roof — so this really bothers me. The violence has got to STOP NOW!!!

  45. July 8, 2008 at 9:11 pm | #45

    Very sorry to hear of this loss today. I was in line reading Hip Hop weekly and am still in complete shock. Sadia took me shopping all over the city when I visited NY from LA. She was an extremely motivated and upbeat young lady. My prayers go out to her family and friends. Life is very short but I am glad that she is now resting in peace and not amoungst such cowards that did this to her.

  50. June 24, 2009 at 4:49 pm | #50

    I was doing some research and accidentally ran across this article and blog. How horrible and sad.
    I knew her not but anyone could see by th ecommnets left that this young woman was walking it out …. living her dream and keeping th elord on her mind as she maneuvered the world of Fame and celebrities. IN jer own right she is a Mover and a shaker now resting in th earms of angels.

    I send Heart felt condolances from a stranger to the loving family of this powerful young woman.
    To all reading this Remember We will all meet again when Gabriel Blows his horn until then may this sweet girl rest well. And as for me ….. this day of my life I have been touched by a strangers tragedy. It really makes one feel and think.

    R.I.P.
