Former Miss South Africa and Miss Universe 2017, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters sister has died

 

In a deep and emotional laden message, Former Miss South Africa and Miss Universe 2017, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters revealed in a post on Instagram on Saturday night that her younger sister has died.

Alongside three images – one of a scripture and two of her sister – Demi-Leigh wrote: “My little Princess, Angel on Earth, biggest joy and baby sister, Franje, passed away earlier today.”

The 23-year-old further paid tribute to Franje – who was born with subtotal cerebellar agenesis, a rare condition that has left her without a cerebellum – writing: “Our hearts are aching beyond measure but I am grateful knowing she’s forever relieved of the pain she experienced on earth. She’s laughing, running and playing in heaven just like we always hoped she would on earth . She’s free! Thank you for all your prayers, love and support.”

The post concludes with a message to Franje in Afrikaans, which translates to: “I love you always my sister and one day we will be together again!”
