2. Her mother's statement

Hillevi's mother Lisbeth Ericson wrote on Facebook, “Completely unbelievable. You were my sunshine. You were so loving and caring. You wanted us all well. I don’t want to believe it’s true, beloved Hillevi.” She posted a second time, writing, “Loved Hillevi, the cards are taken on us a few days before I went to Sweden. My beloved grandchildren Makenna and Ethan have lost their mother, but I will do everything I can and tell you about her raised. My daughter is gone completely incomprehensible. Hillevi you will be with me every day."
