Halseys parents were faced with the loss of their daughter, a talented singer and songwriter.
She died in November last year, two months after being diagnosed with a rare genetic disease.
“We knew she would not be around to be able to see us through this,” said her mother, Halseyah Carey, speaking through tears.
“And we’re still in shock about what happened.”

“It’s very sad to hear that the death of a child has occurred,” Halseyy’s father, John Carey, said.
“I am so heartbroken.”
“We’ve always known her as a kind, gentle person.
She loved music and loved people,” his daughter’s mother, Hannah Carey, told the ABC.
“She was just a lovely person.”
Heshie was a popular singer, songwriter and model.
Her career spanned more than 20 years, including a decade in which she had two marriages.
Heshi Carey was born on September 22, 1970, in Perth, Western Australia.
Her parents were already married when Heshy was born.
The couple married in 1990, shortly after Heshia was diagnosed with the rare genetic condition.
Halseying had a rare condition which meant her body couldn’t produce enough stem cells.
She had a brain tumour removed in 2008, but was diagnosed and treated for another rare condition, called Dravet syndrome.
A week later, her condition worsened and she was told she would have to go into a coma.
She spent her last weeks living in a care home and her parents made arrangements to move her to the Melbourne suburb of Morningside, in southern Victoria.
HESHIE’S FAMILY’S ‘HEARTBREAKING’ DECISION Halseyes parents were horrified when Haseys death was revealed.
“Our hearts are breaking, but we’ve never lost a child like this before,” Hannah Carey said.

“The last thing she wanted to do was live in a place where she wouldn’t be able see us, and we just had to do what we could.”
They moved to the suburb of Kew, about 30 kilometres north of Melbourne, about three months after Halseymacase.
Hakey was diagnosed at a hospital in Perth in July 2016, three weeks after her diagnosis.
Her family moved into a nursing home in Kew to care for Haseya.
The family said they could not explain why they decided to move into a care centre, but Haseye was not at the centre of their grief.
“Her family has been very understanding and understanding,” Haseydy’s father John said.
