SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Special moments are captured on cell phone video. They are special moments shared between sisters and are even more special now for Ivori McJimpsey.

She and her sister, Brechue Wiles, also have matching tattoos. Wiles' body was found in a lake at Duncan Park last week. She was pregnant at the time of her death, the coroner said.

"She had the brightest smile and she was always- you know the joyful person," McJimpsey said.

She says her sister Brechue Wiles loved to dance, but the family became concerned over moves she didn't make.

"She didn't talk to her best friend she was just not answering and I was like something has to be wrong," McJimpsey said.

Investigators with Spartanburg Police say people walking along a trail at Duncan Park saw the body.

"It hasn't set in yet, it just feels like unreal," McJimpsey said. "She just filled up the room- like so many people have reached out to me and were like your sister was an amazing person. She was so sweet."

Police are trying to determine what happened and so is Wiles' family, especially her mother.

"My sister was pregnant and that would've been her first grandchild so it's been pretty tough," McJimpsey said.

The family planned a Mother's Day trip to the beach, but it never happened.

"All of a sudden this happened- this tragedy happened," she said.

McJimpsey can revisit her memories with her sister on her phone, or in her heart because she is always with her.

A candlelight vigil was held in honor of Wiles on Tuesday.

A funeral is taking place next Thursday, May 24 at 2 p.m. at Macedonia Baptist Church in Spartanburg.
