Reeva Steenkamp's friends want people to remember what she stood for.

Shortly after Judge Masipa sentenced Oscar Pistorius to five years in prison, two of Reeva's closest friends addressed journalists outside court.

Gina and Kim Myers were emotional but composed as they hugged Reeva's parents outside court. "Nothing will bring Reeva back but this is one step closer to getting closure. I want people to always remember what she stood remember Reeva," she said. 

Gina added that Reeva was an extraordinary human being and what's most important is that her memory is kept alive. "I don't think anyone of us will heal anytime soon. I felt her a lot today."
