Various tributes have poured in, including one from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They posted a message expressing their support, saying, “Our thoughts and prayers are with Shaq, Jordanna, and the entire Barrett family during this unimaginably difficult time.”

In situations like these, it’s hard to find words that can truly comfort those affected. However, the community is extending their love and support to the family as they cope with the immense loss of their cherished Arrayah.

Arrayah was the youngest of Shaquil and Jordanna’s four children. Shaquil Barrett, 30, has had a successful career, being selected for the Pro Bowl twice in his eight-year tenure. May Arrayah rest in peace, and may angels watch over her.
