The mother who lost her two daughters in a south Tulsa apartment fire held a special memorial on Friday.
Nylah and Noni Moses died when investigators say their aunt stepped out of the apartment they were in while food cooked on the stove.
A fire started in the estimated 8 to 10 minutes after she was gone and the flames spread before the girls could be reached.
On Friday, family and friends said a prayer at Chamberlain Park in north Tulsa.
"They going to live on through us forever," said Keahmiee Moses, their mother.
Then they released dozens of pink balloons to remember the girls.
"They love pink. Noni loved to sing. She loved that she could sing. I got a video of Noni singing. And Nylah loved to dance. It was two different people," said Moses.
Family hugged and tears poured as pink balloons filled the sky above a playground where the girls used to play.
While the family was waiting for everyone a group of balloons blew away.
Moses said that wasn't because of the weather, she knew exactly why the balloons blew away.
"Nylah. She always got to come and be herself," she said.
Moses said Nylah let her older sister Noni's balloons go early at Noni's last birthday party.
"Let Noni's balloon go. Noni had a little stand up balloon. Nylah let it go," she said.
Even though the balloons fade away, their mom said the memories of her girls never will.
"My babies going to be with me forever. I'm not gonna let it die," she said.
