Goo Hara has posted on Instagram to share photos with her close friend Sulli. She included an open-ended sentence in her caption that translates literally as, “In that world, as Jin Ri wants to do.” Jin Ri is Sulli’s given name (also spelled “Jilli”), and Goo Hara’s sentence could be interpreted as, “In that world, I hope Jin Ri does what she wants to do.”
She also posted a lot of personal photos of her and Sulli (her and Sulli hugging without shirts, her and Sulli sharing a bottle of wine from the same bottle, etc.), accompanied with the caption "My tears can't stop. I still can't believe it. The Sulli in so many photos. Sulli-ya" that she later deleted. (source 1 2)
She then said a farewell to Sulli via a live broadcast on Instagram on October 15.
During the short broadcast, Goo Hara said while in tears, “Sulli, I’m sorry that I can’t go because I’m in Japan. I’m so sorry that this is the only way for me to greet you. Go there and be well as you do what you really want to do. I’m going to do my best and try to live your share too, I’ll work hard. Everyone, I’m okay. Sulli and I were really close, we were like real sisters, and that’s why I wanted to speak to her like this so I turned on the live broadcast. I apologize. I’m sorry. Don’t worry, everyone. Sulli, goodbye.”
DEAN, who previously released the single “dayfly” featuring Sulli, wrote on his Instagram Stories, “Your voice will raise a question that will weigh heavily upon many people for a long time. I sincerely thank you and am sorry. I will remember you.”

It’s a sad night.”

You've fought well.
I'm sorry, Jinri-ya, that I couldn't fight alongside you."
People who think they can say whatever they want and get away with it, you guys can live with the fact that you took someone’s life away. Bullying isn’t something that is only done face to face. It’s so heartbreaking to lose another beautiful soul. #RIPSulli— eSNa 윤빛나라 에스나 (@esnathesinger) October 14, 2019

Sulli's letter reads as follows:
2019/9/5. A rainy day with thunders.
Today is the 14th anniversary of my debut.
I've been so busy these days that I didn't even remember when I debuted.
But there were those who didn't forget and congratulated me first.
They cheered me on for how I've lived in the past, as well as for how I plan to live in the future.
Thank you for allowing me to put down my countless thoughts for a little while and look back on the good days.
Thanks to all of you, I received a lot of help, laughed a lot, and built up the courage.
I get the feeling that life isn't meant to be lived alone.
I have many people by my side, and I made countless, precious memories together.
I also want to become someone who gives off warmth.
I want to say thank you to all of you, and please support me no matter what.
