While the last week has brought Beyonce good news in abundance, yesterday saw some of her fans met with the cruel occurrence that is death, losing one of the many people the performer has inspired over the years.

Yes, hours after attending a showing of the entertainers ‘Mrs.Carter Show‘, 16 year old Jasmine Guillaume lost her life in a Brooklyn fire, leaving behind a family and friends who now mourn and miss her bitterly.

Now, in thanking her for giving the teen her last memory, a friend of Jasmine’s has penned open letter to Beyonce, now available to read in full below…

On her passing, the NY Times reported:

“The 16-year-old, identified by the police as Jasmine Guillaume, was pronounced dead at Maimonides Medical Center. The two other women, sisters ages 24 and 27, were listed in critical condition at separate hospitals. Two other women, the mother and the aunt of Ms. Guillaume, were both listed in stable condition at Kings County Hospital Center.

The cause of the fire was still being investigated on Friday afternoon, the Fire Department said. There were no working smoke detectors in the home, officials said.

Ms. Guillaume was in 11th grade at St. Saviour High School in Park Slope. On Friday, friends and classmates expressed their grief on Twitter.

One girl said that Jasmine brought “nothing but positivity and light to St. Saviour. We will truly never ever be the same without you Jasmine.”

Ms. Guillaume was one of four people killed in the last two days in fires across the city. A blaze in Fordham Manor in the Bronx late Thursday evening killed two men, ages 49 and 44, the Police Department said. There were no working smoke detectors there either, officials said. And another fire, at a retirement home in Flushing, Queens, just after midnight on Thursday, killed a 73-year-old woman. Cigarettes were to blame for both of those fires, officials said.”

Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this time.

  6. Iconic cici December 22, 2013

    Horrible way to go .

  7. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    You trolls can’t even keep it civil on a post about someone who has passed on?! Grow the f*** up!

  8. blablabla December 22, 2013

    the post is about a young girl who died in a horrible way and theres people talking about Beyoncé’s “flop” album. seriously? everyone knows you hate Beyoncé you jackass! but could you be a little bit respectful? COULD YOU?

  9. truth December 22, 2013

    so now people want others on this site to have respect for the dead, when they do not even respect people when living. I am sorry, but some on this blog are ass backwards. Now, I understand that this was about a young lady passing but let us be real. The only reason why this made news here is because it was a letter penned to Beyoncé. If it were a story about anyone else and or a letter to anybody else it would have never seen the light of day here.
    Also, I could see if Beyoncé actually responded to this letter, but since she did not, I am having a hard time seeing why this is music news. I live in a city where innocent people are murdered daily, so my heart always goes out to the lost of life, but the reason why this story is posted is kind of pointless….UNLESS Sam or someone from TGJ knows the victim personally and this is there way of paying tribute. If not, all I see is BEYONCE BEYONCE BEYONCE and no real sympathy to the actual incident at hand.
    sorry

    Beyoncé’s album is not a flop. Her video Dunk on Love has almost 16 million viewers in just a few days and that single is doing VERY WELL. You people are some hateful @sses. What does this child’s death have to do with Beyoncé’s album?

    R.I.P. Jasmine Guillaume and prays go out to the family

  11. Super Cisus December 22, 2013

    B**** I showed respect and Who said her cd was flop I said it is played out already big f****** difference tired of these f*** Beyonce stories

  12. Molly December 22, 2013

  13. h2o December 22, 2013

    May she Rest in Paradise

  14. Molly December 22, 2013

    Anyways im so sorry to hear what happen to this young lady losing someone is one of the hardest things to go thru my heart goes out to her fam.

  15. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @Molly umm,at least tell them to try and keep pathetic beyonce insults out of it because she is not the important topic here.

  16. Super Cisus December 22, 2013

    B**** bye Molly is my sis but she does not own me and I don’t own her, faf, futureciara iconic cici overdose and the other c squad. B**** we independent like destinys child we do whatever we want and like they said nobody disrespected the girl who passed but this is nothing but another Beyonce post f*** off f** @bitchive_garbaj

  17. BeyonceIsAQueen(YouAreADog) December 22, 2013

    My God! TGJ were doing a nice thing by raising awareness for the letter because her friend wants it to be seen. Everybody knows Beyonce’s people read here so I think it was a good idea.

  18. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    But you had to drag in her album. Stop with the excuses

  19. MadameBeyonce December 22, 2013

    STFU Truth, how can you find negative in something that was meant to be positive.

  20. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @BeyonceIsAQueen I can’t believe I didn’t see that! Sam really did a good thing after all.

  21. CallMeBeyBey December 22, 2013

    All jokes aside people are mad at Grape for this? Did yall forget that they were in the Beyonce tour video because her dance teacher reads this site? I saw it as them trying to help Bey see it.

  22. molly December 22, 2013

    Girl i have no control over the c squad i cant tell them what to say or how to feel just like you cant with the hive, and you have to remember beys name is attached to this post so of course someones gonna say something bout her. @beyhive_minaj

  23. Super Cisus December 22, 2013

    Yessss @molly they trying to do the most. Nobody disrespected the girl is any way

  24. molly December 22, 2013

    @Cisus exactly boo!

  25. truth December 22, 2013

    1. no I will not stfu.
    2. if you read my comment, I had nothing negative to say about the actual incident. I just called out the people wanting respect when this site NEVER seems to understand the real meaning of respect. this story would have never made it here if Beyoncé name was not involved, but people are screaming about respect. really?
    I could see if this were a news blog but this is a music blog, that tends to put others down to make their faves look better. so, again my point is why are people NOW asking for respect for the dead, when they do not RESPECT people when they are living. check yourself before coming at me

  26. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @Molly I get what you are saying,but try to understand that the main focus of this post is TGJ trying to reach out to beyonce since one of her fans passed on. Beyonce is a sweet person,so if she saw this,of course she would care. I was just trying to say at least keep the focus on the victim and not on beyonce. Sam probably attached her name to the post to try and reach out to her. Her camp reads this blog you know.

  27. molly December 22, 2013

    @Truth you better preach boo and spill facts

  28. molly December 22, 2013

    @Beyhive_minaj i get you boo, and well i hope beyonce does see this and reaches out.

  29. KissesForKelly December 22, 2013

    We all know Bey’s peeps are on here 24/7 so I don’t know why Truth is so pressed.

  30. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @Molly I hope so too,I know it would mean a lot to the fan.

  31. Marley December 22, 2013

    @truth No its just called insensitive. Whatever the motive behind the blog is.

  32. Marley December 22, 2013

    This is touching I hope she sees it, she does usually respond to this kind of thing so hopefully someone passes the message on.

  33. fatusankoh December 22, 2013

    o my god that is sad rest in pice you are beautiful

  34. FutureCIARA December 22, 2013

    WOW, I send my condolences!

    What a coincidence though, So many fires in a certain area. The New York mayor and other government officials need to step up and see to it that EVERY building/unit has smoke detectors in and around that area.

    I mean its ridiculous, I’ve never heard anything like it… Do they expect people to go out and purchase their own smoke detectors? and who TF is responsible for leasing out these buildings to tenants without proper detectors when building fires have clearly been an issue in the NY area, AND they are most likely charging these people who live there quadruple times the rent to stay there… TRULY SAD AND RATCHET!

  35. Trina December 22, 2013

    excuse me but my friend died its not about beyonce’s album so take your horrible negativity somewhere else thank you

  36. Mary December 22, 2013

    I was friends with this girl and you guys are seriously taking this the wrong way we are not looking for attention we are just trying to get Beyoncé to say sorry for your loss or something were not trying to get famous because of our friend dying some of you are seriously sick hearted

  37. cj December 23, 2013

    the girl who passed was my friend and i can truly say everyone misses her alot, she brought joy wherever she went, she was a beautiful person and she totally deserves this

  38. Haley December 23, 2013

    That was a good friend of mine who died along with her sister. I’d appreciate it, as well as the rest of her friends and family, if you keep the negative comments to yourself. We are just trying to help her family, they have nothing left.

  39. Ina December 23, 2013

    May Jazmine rest in peace. May her family find condolescence from friends and family during
    this difficult time.

    Everyone do not use this time to bash Beyonce’s music. Beyonce is a talented and beautiful young lady.
    We should focus on the death of a young 16 year old girl who love Beyonce’s music and left this world
    to early.

  40. Auntie December 23, 2013

    Clearly the TROLLS on this post have never watched a loved one especially a CHILD cry over the loss a friend. A woman lost not one..but ALL three of her daughters in one night! This is not about whether you like the album OR NOT! This is about the young girls who are left behind and are trying to find some peace and joy during their mourning! Didn’t your parents EVER teach that if you have nothing nice to say to say NOTHING at ALL!!

  41. zilla December 24, 2013

    It definitely is, I’m friends with one of the girls who was friends with her. She definitely passed, but this is the first time I’m hearing about how she did. Rest In Peace, Jasmine.

  42. TinaMinaj December 24, 2013

    Rachet Ciara fans being so disrespectful even in the face of death and some people supporting it?!? SMH Some of you people are just DISGUSTING
