My Dearest Brittany,

I miss you more than these simple words can ever express... Your phone calls, your HUGS, your beautiful SMILE and your SWEET KISSES. Can't sleep right now, just pondering all of the great memories we shared.

I saw Eugenia yesterday and got some of the pink bracelets she had made for you. She is such a good friend of yours. She also got to experience some of your perfect AWESOME spirals with the football. That made me so happy to know that I taught you how to pass that ball. We had so much fun!!!

I am so proud of all your accomplishments. You were successful in everything you did in life. I, WE, miss you! I wish I could be with you right now, but I must take care of Cameron and keep him safe. He speaks of you often and loves you so much. He will be going to kindergarten in a couple of months. Please keep him safe under your wings when I can't be there...

Sweet Dreams Baby Girl,
Kisses, Kisses, Kisses

Love Daddy

Hello everyone.

Where could I get one of those pink bracelets in remembrance of Brittany? Let me know please!

She was a great person, friend, sister, and daughter. She will ALWAYS be missed by many, but just keep in mind the fact that she is now always with us and we will someday see her again. She is having a great time up in heaven. I know that because she always made the best of everything. WE love and miss you Brittany!

I've worn the pink bracelet with BRITTANY STAR engraved on it ever since the day I got it. It makes me feel like I'm taking her with me everywhere I go. I look down at her name and see her face, that smile, those eyes. Whether I'm writing a paper, having a quiet dinner with my family, or at out with friends doing all the things that make teenage girls the most exciting creatures on the planet, I know that she's still here. I know that she's with us, that she never left. I know Brittany's family is still struggling to deal with all of this, and it hurts me so much to hear of their pain. I miss her so much.

Hi Starlene,

I hope you remember me. We worked at Vision Systems together. I am sitting hear eating my salad, reading your website (crying and hoping) that you're doing OK.

I lost my brother a year and a half ago and I still MISS him. Just keep thinking about her right there with you each and everyday watching over you. I know she is! .

If you look for those "cool" moments like the sentence in her homework, you will see there are times that seem coincidental, but I feel that everything happens for a reason and it's not a coincidence. We may not like it and we may not know the reason, until we get to heaven. You HAVE to see the movie "The Five People You Meet In Heaven"! Everything made sense to me after I watched it. It tells how everything that happens in your life happens for a reason. You might think it's all just chapters in your life. But, when you get to heaven you find out it's actually one BIG story that links it all together. It has a happy ending, if that helps any :-)

My prayers go out to you and your family! I looked at the pictures of Brittany when she was little and I could see you with her when you would bring her in to work.

I hope good comes from this somehow. Maybe since soooo many people were touched by her, they will think of her before doing the same thing. I know Laura & I did the same thing and it sends chills up my spine to think we got away with it.

I pray no one ever has to go through this same thing.

Love and caring thoughts,

I have written in the guestbook a few times and have visited this site countless times seeking some sort of solace since learning about Brittany's death. I did not know Brittany or her family, but can't get them out of my mind. I've cried reading the letters from her parents, siblings and friends -- and looking at the pictures which reflect her precious yet short life and sweet personality. I am so sad for all of you.

I know that its hard for us to know what was going through Brittany's mind that night. I keep trying to reflect on when I was young (for answers?) and snuck my parents car on a couple of occasions. Never, ever, EVER did I even imagine that this would happen to me...never even crossed my mind. I never thought about the financial stress it would cause my family if something like this happened -- or the most difficult one...that I could possibly end my own life (or that of another). I really don't think that Brittany thought far enough into her actions either that fateful night. The more I think about it, I couldn't even tell you where we were going or why we felt we had to do it when we did it. And honestly...I was a good kid that no one would have ever expected to entertain such a thought. Was it the thrill, feeling like a grown-up, what was it? Even after all these years I can't tell you. But, I can tell you that I do recall getting caught and my Mother grounding me for most of the summer...and thinking my life was over. Boy, I had no clue.

Brittany, you are so very missed. Your parents and siblings are lost without you. I know that you and God are watching over them as they try to pick up the pieces and learn to live again. Your spirit will live on through all of us, the lesson in your tragic death will hopefully prevent another family from such a horrific loss and you will ALWAYS be the brightest star in all of our skies. Please know that you will not be forgotten and our love for you will never fade.

To all of Brittany's family and friends, you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers...and once again, am so very sorry for your loss. I only wish there was something I could do or say to offer you comfort. My heart breaks for all of you.

God bless you all...

As the day fades and the night calls, all I can think of is you.

As the owls calls leads into the birds sweet morning chirps, all I can think of is you.

While the bears hibernate and the summer comes to an end, I'm still thinking of you.

As we bring in the new year with a bang, guess who I'm thinking of? You.

Since 1989 till the day that I die the only person I will always think of and miss is you.
