On the morning of January 5th, 2021, our beloved Simone Bresi-Ando transitioned from this physical realm. We were not expecting her departure and are heartbroken in the space that was hers. 
Simone was a force who moved through life uplifting and empowering those in her path. The liveliness of her spirit combined with her tenacity and drive will continue to inspire us in her absence. 
We are deeply moved by the outpouring of love expressed by so many across the world, and from all areas of her life.
While we engage in handling her affairs, we appreciate your patience and consideration. We will provide updates as they become available.
Warmest Regards,
The Bresi-Ando Family

Simone, you were the first little sibling I remember being born amongst my childhood friends, I remember your cry being chosen for the sound of our baby Jesus in our nativity play just a short time after you arrived and in you a star was literally born.  You went on to shine your light …

Simone was a force to be reckoned with, a strong, confident, intelligent, pure and beautiful soul as I remember her.  I was lucky enough to be in the same class at Prendergast with her and shared many happy memories.  She was the one I would never win a debate against.  She was our one …

I didn’t know Simone personally, but the community she created on Facebook was one of the first groups I joined to feel like I “belonged”. It gave me a feeling of community, something I have struggled with in my social circles. I learnt so much from her words and from the page she created. …

I met Simone years ago in London when she was putting on a poetry event. It was brief, but her aura was so bright. Fast forward years later, I joined her Facebook group,  ‘I’mPossible’. I loved the messages disseminated within the group, and I’m all for our Black women and Black  girls voices to …

I’m lucky to have discovered Simone through social media but I am so glad I followed through on a reading from her before her passing. Because everytime she gave us a public monthly horoscope I felt like she was talking directly to me for guidance. And for each month she helped me to regain …

My darling Simone   We first met through my website deep grooves music.  You reached out to me and asked about what kit you would need to make deep house music. We ended up arranging to meet, in a pub called the Page in Victoria. Like a blind date 😉 We had a good …

Simone was a force to be reckoned with. We had worked together on a few projects here and New York. I was so grateful that she chose me to work with her. She didn’t have to but she did. We had great personal conversations and she was just another Sagittarius that was able to …
