Hi, my name is Christie. I remember I heard about Brittany's death a while back. But I didnt think much of it, because I didn't know the girl. It still got me really sad to think that a beautiful girl was killed, with one mistake. And it made me think about how quickly things can happen.

Tomorrow is never guaranteed, so make today worth it. My mother always told me that. About 2 weeks ago, for no apparent reason Brittany came into my mind. I hadn't really thought of her since I found out she passed away, but one night... I couldnt stop thinking of her. Then I found this page... I have some friends that went to her school... and I remembered there was a cheer competition at my school, Mira Mesa. And i went. My friends were there and I was talking to them, and I got introduced to Brittany. I couldnt belive I had forgotten about her.

She was such a sweet girl.. and it broke my heart to know that such a beautiful, sweet, nice and caring young lady could be taken so quickly.

God bless, and just know that you are in my thoughts now. Always, Christie.

I just wrote on this message board a few days ago, and have been really thinking about Brittany's family, and I can't imagine how hard it is for you.

Yesterday on June 14 my friend got really hurt and had to go to the hospital, to get stitches and me and my other friend were crying like never before. It turned out that she was O.K the next day, and that was good news. Sometimes I just have these thoughts and can't even imagine what a great time Brittany and her family would be having if only she was here, to make that happen.

I would have loved to be her friend and just come to school every day and see her waiting for you with those big beautiful eyes and smile. I know she could make anyone's day as happy as dogs. Reading all the comments from the people she knew and her family members, I haven't seen or heard anything bad about her.

I just think this is a tragic ending for a girl like Brittany or anyone. Also reading what her step- dad wrote, how Baylee just misses her so much, just brakes my HEART. I also have a sister that will soon be 21 and if this were her I don't know how I could live. I would never be happy again. It would be soooooo hard for me for her to miss ALL of my birthday parties, performances, the day I get married, and maybe have my first child, and for her to miss that, all those days I still wouldn't have a full on happy day without her there. And right now thats probably how her two sisters are feeling with out her.

I would also have the question in my head that everyone who knew her is thinking, "Why did god choose to take her?" I, mean there had to be a good reason. There had to be! All that I hope is that she is in a GOOD place right now and is having a GREAT life up there. Well, now I think I've said a lot and thats all I really have to say. J

ust know Star she is O.K and that I pray for you and your family + beautiful Brittany and I will never forget her, and the great but short life she had. You were a GREAT, LOVING, and CARING mom!!!!!

Keep shining Brittany * Curcio. You will be in our hearts now and forever. Sweet Dreams!

I've been reading the messages here and I would like to offer something and I hope it helps a little.


Sometimes when bad things happen, we question why.  We want an answer so we can have closure.  But there will always be questions about this tragedy that we will never get answers to.  It is so hard to understand why Brittany had to leave us.  She was too young, too nice, and she had too much to live for....


But I think it's important to remember that God did not take her and this was not part of His Plan.  I think God's plan is simple - He just wants us all to take care of each other while we are down here together.  As our Father, He loves us all and doesn't want any of us to be hurt.


God gives us all free will to choose the right path and make good decisions.  Sometimes things just happen.  And bad things do happen to good people.  Humans make mistakes.  Why do so many innocent lives suffer and die from starvation in poor countries?  Why do innocent babies die?  What lesson are we supposed to learn when the unimaginable happens to someone who is good and pure?


God loved Brittany and her family very much and I believe he cried the day she died too.  He is just as sad and sorry about her death as we are.  And though this tragedy happened, He still made it good and right in the end because by His Grace we can come to Heaven and be reunited with Him when our life journey is complete.


I believe that God welcomed her with open arms because she loved and believed in Him.  And even though we miss her so much, I feel a little bit of comfort knowing that she is saved and is resting in the arms of our Lord.


I am sending my thoughts and prayer to Brittany's family and friends.

I truly do love you.. and words can't express the way I feel knowing what had happened.. I know what it is to have those urges to do what we know is not the best choice. yet you took that risk.. but life is full of surprises Brittany and God wanted his angel. You are so beautiful and I know you are still here with us all. Your family loves you so much yet I know you already know this.. I will forever love you Brittany Star Curcio...I promise this to you..

Hi Star. I wanted to let you know that I am still here for you and always will. You are in my heart and in my prayers everyday. This website is so great, looking at Brittany growing up, just seeing how much she was loved and how much she loved you.

You will always be her mother, and she will always be looking down shining her love on you. Look up to heaven and take it in and she will help show you the way to sustain while you are on this earth until you can be with her again.

I love you, friends always, Valerie

hey are some lyrics that remind me of you. I miss you, you're always in my heart!

"when I look to the sky"

When it rains it pours and opens doors
And floods the floors we thought would always keep us safe and dry

And in the midst of sailing ships we sink our lips into the ones we love That have to say goodbye

And as I float along this ocean
I can feel you like a notion that won't seem to let me go

Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you're here with me And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I'm lost something tells me you're here with me And I can always find my way when you are here

And every word I didn't say caught up in some busy day
And every dance on the kitchen floor we didn't have before
And every sunset that we'll miss I'll wrap them all up in a kiss Pick you up in all of this when I sail away

And while I float along this ocean
I can feel you like a notion that I hope will never leave

Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you're here with me And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I'm lost something tells me you're here with me And I can always find my way

Whether I am up or down or in or out or just plane overhead Instead it just feels like it's impossible to fly But with you I can spread my wings to see me over everything that life may send me
When I am hoping it won't pass me by

And when I feel like there is no one that will ever know me there you are to show me

When I look to the sky something tells me you're here with me And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I'm lost something tells me you're here with me And I can always find my way when you are here

When I look to the sky something tells me you're here with me And I can always find my way when you are here And when I feel like I'm lost something tells me you're here with me And I can always find my way when you are here

I want you to know that you may be gone but you are certainly not forgotten. So many people miss you terribly and think of you all the time. Your death has impacted so many people on all different levels - it is somewhat amazing.

I know you are flying with angels and you must be one of the most beautiful angels ever. Send some of that "special something" you have down here to your mom and dad, Greg, Steve, Baylee and Gia. They all miss you so much!!

Rest In Peace~

You will never be forgotten!

Sweet Britt.........

I just wanted you to know that there is NEVER a day that goes by when I am not thinking about you.  You were such a sweet, innocent young lady that had so much life to live for.  I will never forget that beautiful smile of yours that always shined so bright.  You have touched the lives of so many people and I am sure they miss you as much as myself.

As the song that Coach Christine posted on this site a few days ago goes "I'm Here Without You", but you Are always on my mind........How true.

I know you wouldn't want anybody to be sad now that you are gone and I try to think of that whenever I think of you. It's just really hard not to get caught up in emotion. Your sister Baylee was so sad when I was taking her to school this morning.  You meant the world to her.

They are going to be planting a tree in your honor at the site of the accident soon and your Mom is going to have a plaque made to put there. As soon as we find out when we will let everybody else know..

Take Care Britt.........~Steve~

hello..I'm very sad to hear about this tragedy. But I'm glad to know everyones made the best out of it. I used to live in San Diego but I moved back to my home town in Texas and my friends from SD told me about it. It just breaks my heart to know that a special girl like Brittany had to go.

But I would really like to join the STARR group because I think it's a great program. Especially for 8th grade graduates going into high school next year. So I would really like to order a bracelet as a reminder to make good decisions. Also so I can show my friends so they will know to make good decisions as well.

Thanks a bunch God Bless Brittany's family and I'm happy to know Brittany is living an unbelievably awesome life in Heaven.

Love and Best Wishes

Dear Brittany,

I' ve never met you before, but your story has effected so many people, including me! I could right ten pages about you and how loving you were just by reading all of these messages from day one this website was created to this day. The very first time I visited this website I was in tears and when I was done looking around all I was thinking was "Why, did god take her???"

You were so beautiful, talented in cheering, loving, and you still are. You're just not here to show us. Your mom Star is having such a hard time right now without you, but she knows you would never do anything that would effect her that way. I don't think she can even get through a day without one tear drop, because she misses you so much. Your two sisters loved you so much and I can't imagine how hard it is for them. All of your friends also miss you. They need your bright smile to cheer them up. Everyone needs you.

Well now that your flying with the angels I hope your having fun with your Grandma Jerri!!!!!!

Hopefully someday we will meet, but until then keep in mind CALIFORNIA MISSES YOU!!!!!

Keep shining baby girl, keep shining!

i've been thinking about you. i've been staring at my instant message buddy list...looking at your screen name...waiting until you will return from your away message. doesn't happen.. i just called your cell phone three times. and heard your voice yet again. my parents are gunna wonder what all of these one minute phone calls are about.

haha i can see my mom now yelling at me "TANYA!!! WHO IS THIS PERSON YOU KEEP CALLING A HUNDRED TIMES A DAY!!!. GET DOWN HERE RIGHT NOW" then i'll explain, and she'd be fine with it...but have to calm down for a few minutes before she'd be able to speak with me rationally.

Dearest Brittany,

I still am drawn to this beautiful site daily and when I am away from my computer for a day or two...this is the first place I come after turning on my computer. I was away this past weekend and just got a chance to get caught up with your website. Tears are rolling down my face. Although I can barely see through my tears, I feel compelled to write something (again)...but don't know what exactly to say or how to say it?!?

First of all, I just feel such unbelievable sadness. You are so very loved Brittany - and so many people are doing such wonderful things to try and help your family get through each day that passes without you...but it still hurts everyone terribly and we all miss you more with each passing day. Please help us all through this difficult time. Help us all find some comfort - especially your beautiful family. The world just doesn't look or feel the same to any of us anymore. I've ordered a couple of your pink bracelets and will wear them proudly and continue to pray for your family - and success of the STAAR program. I know in my heart of hearts that you are in such a wonderful place - and probably love having those beautiful wings. :) Just know that we all love and miss you SOOOOO very much and you will never be forgotten.

Shine bright pretty girl - shine ever so are in all our hearts, tears and prayers forever.

Hi its elizabeth again. I kno a bunch of songs dedicated to someone who was taken and i just feel like u need to read these lyrics. This song is called "I'll Be Missing You" by P. Diddy. If i find more i will post them.

Yeah... this right here (tell me why)
Goes out, to everyone, that has lost someone
That they truly loved (c'mon, check it out)

Verse One: Puff Daddy

Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hangin on the block for dough
Notorious, they got to know that
Life ain't always what it seem to be (uh-uh)
Words can't express what you mean to me
Even though you're gone, we still a team
Through your family, I'll fulfill your dream (that's right)
In the future, can't wait to see
If you'll open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When it's real, feelings hard to conceal
Can't imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living your life, after death

Chorus: Faith Evans

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
I'll be missing you
Thinkin of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
I'll be missing you

[Puff] I miss you Big

Verse Two: Puff Daddy

It's kinda hard with you not around (yeah)
Know you in heaven smilin down (eheh)
Watchin us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Til the day we meet again
In my heart is where I'll keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need (uh-huh) to proceed Strength I need to believe My thoughts Big I just can't define (can't define) Wish I coul turn back the hands of time Us in the six, shop for new clothes and kicks You and me taking flicks Makin hits, stages they receive you on Still can't believe you're gone (can't believe you're gone) Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath) I know you still living you're life, after death


[Faith Evans] Somebody tell me why

Interlude: Faith Evans

One black morning
When this life is over
I know
I'll see your face

Outro: 112

Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
Every night I pray, every step I take
[Puff] Every day that passes
Every move I make, every single day
[Puff] Is a day that I get closer
[Puff] To seeing you again
Every night I pray, every step I take
[Puff] We miss you Big... and we won't stop
Every move I make, every single day
[Puff] Cause we can't stop... that's right
Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
[Puff] We miss you Big

Chorus 2X with variations
Chorus 1X with interlude 2X over the top to fade

hi brittany. im just checking in again. and im just saying how much we all miss you. and how much we wish you were still here with us. i am in a fight with my friend right now, and it sucks. and i wonder if she realizes how much i love her. or if she realizes that at any moment in time either of us could be gone. i dont think she does. just as any of your friends didnt.

you were so friendly and beautiful and kind, no one expected god to take you. but i just come to your site every single day, and it makes me thankful for my friends and for each day. it makes me wonder though too, how god chose you. you were a person of admiration to us all. but when he chooses me, i will be sure to come and play with you every day so we can laugh our hearts out and be kids again.

if you could do one thing for me. and tell me friend kacey how mcuh she means to me and how mcuh i love her because i have already tried once, but she doesnt understand. i love you brittany. take care.

My Dearest Brittany,

Hello again. I'm sorry I don't get a chance to write as often as I think of you but I do not have access to a computer. Besides, I think of you baby girl every single day.

I remember the last time I saw you, it was at SDSU, you were there on a field trip and I was there with the blood mobile. I wish I would have had more time to talk with you because I know that the last time we had spoke we didn't have very nice things to say to one another. I'm so sorry for the things I said to you. I just wanted you to come visit with us. I guess we didn't realize just how busy you were with your friends and just grown up you had gotten, we just wanted our little Brittany. We missed having you over. I know your dad did, we all did.

I know you are in heaven watching over all of us now and I know you know where I am and I am here, everything and everybody is going to be okay. I give you my word baby girl. You just keep an eye on all of us and keep us safe until we meet again.

I look forward to that day, you don't know how much. I love you with all my heart and please say hi to grama Jeri for me because I miss her too.

Love forever, Your step mom Dina

She is so beautiful and i could tell that she has a wonderful soul. I know that she is happy and smiling down on your family! I cant even imagine what you have gone through...I will keep your family in my prayers each and everyday!

Once again I am so sorry for the loss of your wonderful bright little girl!

Dear Sweet Sunshine,


I'd like to share a song by one of my favorite bands that makes me think about you. 


We are doing what we can for your mommy and daddy, your Steve and your Greg, and your baby sisters, Baylee and Gia. 


From daily phone calls and emails, to hugs and well wishes, we try to be there for them. There are some home cooked meals from other moms who are chipping in with that daily task a couple of times a week.  Then there is this website that brings your family and friends close to you, all the while, reminding them that you will not be forgotten.  Every time someone writes, it gives them so much comfort and peace.


Still even with all of this, it seems to be getting a little lonelier each day.  We miss you so very much, precious little girl.


Often, it is hard to see through all the tears and remember that there is a world out there, but we will continue to do what we can for your family to lift them up in their saddest time.  We thank God for everyone who continues to walk this life journey with your loved ones and we thank Him for helping us continue to care for them. 


Mostly, we are grateful for the time we did have with you, and we will cherish the memory of your beautiful eyes, your lovely smile and your kind and beautiful heart.


Shine on little Star, Let your light shine....


Here Without You

By: 3 Doors Down

(Press the play button on the Media Player above to hear song)



A hundred days have made me older
since the last time that I saw your pretty face.
A thousand lies have made me colder
and I don't think I can look at this the same.

And all the miles that separate
disappear now when I'm dreamin' of your face.

I'm here without you baby
but you're still on my lonely mind.
I think about you baby
and I dream about you all the time.
I'm here without you baby
but you're still with me in my dreams.
And tonight, it's only you and me.

The miles just keep rollin'
as the people leave their way to say hello.
I've heard this life is overrated
but I hope that it gets better as we go.

I'm here without you baby
but you're still on my lonely mind.
I think about you baby
and I dream about you all the time.
I'm here without you baby
but you're still with me in my dreams.
And tonight girl, it's only you and me.

And everything I know, and anywhere I go
It gets hard but it won't take away my love.
And when the last one falls, and when it's all said and done
It gets hard but it won't take away my love.

I'm here without you baby
but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
and I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl, it's only you and me

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I look at your Myspace everyday, and I look at this website, too. I miss you soo~ much, as does everyone else.

I'm anxiously awaiting the day when I'm going to get the pink bracelet with your name on it. When I get it, I'm going to put it on my wrist and I will never take it off. I bought one for Amanda because I know she would want one, too. Visit Amanda in her dreams, I'm sure it would comfort her. Please tell Amanda that I love her and miss her and I can't wait to see her! =)

You visited me in a dream. There was pink everywhere. Hahaha. You gave me a hug and told me to keep my head up, that everything is going to be okay, and everything is going to work out for the better. And you know what, Brittany? It is. It really is. =)

I keep the picture of you and the candle that I recieved at the candlelight vigil right beside my bed. I go to sleep every night to your beautiful smile. =D

At the candlelight vigil, I got to hug your mom and talk to her for a little bit. She is such a sweetie! And your little sister, Bailey, is soo~ adorable! When she told us about her memories of you, I couldn't help but smile. You came from a great, loving family. You should feel soo~ lucky, Brittany! =)

I could write soo~ much more, but I think I have written enough for now. =P

I love you and I miss you soo~ much, Brittany Star! Rest In Peace and keep on having fun flying with the angels! =)


P.S.-- I would also love to be a part of the STAAR program. Send me an e-mail about it sometime, and I'll reply as soon as possible! <3

I had never known Brittany but I wish that I did. She seemed to have a great life and looked to be the most sweetest girl. She was soooooo beautiful, had a heart for other people and so many other things.

One of my family members passed away in February of 2005 and it was REALLY hard for me just like right now it is for you. Even though I didn't know Brittany she has touched my heart and so many other's. The day that I found out it changed my life in such a sad way. Right now I am still in that position and she passed away about a month ago. Some days I think to myself WOW, even though I didn't know her I would have been so happy to hear, she still is alive, and I know you people who knew her would be soooooooo GREATFUL to hear that.

Well, right now I have to go for now. Just keep in mind Star, and family I pray and think about you every night, and to Brittany hopefully I will meet you someday. Until then just know California Misses YOU!!!!!!!

R.I.P Brittany Star Curcio, and keep shining beautiful baby.

Dearest Baby Girl,

Tonight your mother and I attended the AVID banquette for the 2005 seniors. The ceremony was very nice, They opened with a dedication to you. Then we were asked to come forward and received a beautiful pink box with letters from your AVID brothers & sisters as well as a photo of you and your classmates. It was very special.

I was asked to speak but was to overwhelmed by the sadness that I felt that you were not there with us to enjoy the honors of your fellow students and friends. Some parents and friends came over to say hi and hugs. I saw your patch on the quilt in pink. I am so proud of you!!!


Sweet Dreams Baby Girl,

Love Daddy

I signed the guestbook on Brittany's page a while ago. I found her on and read her was the saddest thing in the world. I just received the e-mail about her vigil...sorry I haven't checked my e-mail.

I am a complete stranger to her and her friends and family, but I am also a mommy, 21 years old, and can't help but cry every time I hear anything about her. She was so young, so beautiful.
I am so sorry. I wish no one in the world the pain you are going through. I don't even know how she passed away, I just know that she is in a better place. I am so sorry for your loss.

Hi -

I'm from Massachusetts and have been visiting family here in RB (actually Bernardo Heights) for the past 2 weeks. I just wanted to share with you how much I've been touched by Brittany's life/death and also by the examples set by her great family.

A few days ago I took a walk by the place where the accident occurred and stopped to place 2 small flowers at the base of the wooden cross. That is such a quiet place and such a beautiful place. Perhaps someday soon there could be a permanent memorial placed there?

May God bless Brittany and her dear family!


Message from the Web Manager:

Dear Moe,

We hope you found some peace and comfort at the site. 

The community of 4S Ranch is graciously open to the idea of something to remember Brittany by.  They are in contact with Brittany's family regarding some type of permanent memorial for Brittany.  We will let you know what they come up with at the appropriate time.

Thank you.

I do not remember your mother as well as I remember the loving family that the Curcio's are. She is definitely reuniting her love with Grandma Jeri.

although i did not know you that well. actually at all, i still for some reason feel connected to you. i come to your site every day as well as your myspace. and even though on myspace im not your friend, you still have a friend request waiting thats from me.

 i also bought one of your bracelets. you are so special to me in so many different ways. you have taught me to cherish every day as if it were my last. you taught me how to follow your dream. you taught me how to be true to myself. and you are someone that everyone admires. there are so many reasons people look up to you, some in which you probably dont even know about.

your beauty. your love. your personality. you are not like "everyone" else/ you fell from a dream. you are an angel to us all. your smile lights up the entire room. your beauty sends sparks into the sky. yes brittany. you are someone truly amazing.

I love you with all my heart. and there you will stay. forever in my heart.

Brittany-There isnt a day that goes by that I dont stop what im doing and just break down and cry. Its hard to go to school day in day out and your supposed to pay attention to some stupid lecture in class when your heart has been broken. Its hard going to the gym where i first met you and then have you not there. Bad things arent suppoused to happen to good people. I dont understand. I just want you back.

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be(?)
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
'Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

dedicated to Brittany...with love...

Your website for Brittany is a wonderful tribute to a girl who seems to have been growing up to be a wonderful young lady. I am so sorry for your loss. I saved this poem quite a long time ago, and thought it might be of some comfort.

I give you this one thought to keep--
I am with you still--I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone--
I am with you still--in each new dawn.

My Star,

I miss you soo much babe.

Each day seems to be easier and harder at the some time. I feel so bad that we all seem to move on, i know i havent but others do and i hate that so much. i want you to live on forever so your family and friends can feel a little peace, and i know you will but it is still hard. I miss you everyday, more and more my heart breaks without you. I will never be the same.

I havent really posted anything here except my usual i miss you and drive past the sight everyday. but now i dont know if it is because i feel a little more at peace with the accident, i can really speak my mind about how i feel.

i still remember when i found out...that Monday morning, i had been on vacation and all i could think about was cooing to school and seeing your beautiful smile, but i didnt. instead i was met with tears and someone mumbling about how beautiful you were, i was so confused i didnt know what had happened. Then i went into programs and there your picture was on the computer and the article in the paper. my head just started spinning it couldnt possibly be you there had to be some mistake, but there wasnt. the next days were blurs of tears and remembrance. i remember going hojme and trying to tell my mom, but all i could say was struck me like a bus.

I miss you sooo much and want to bring you back. i hope you know we are looking after your family, especially your mom and we all will never forget our beautiful star. we love you!

Hey beautiful baby girl,

I have been sitting at this computer for weeks reading what everyone else has written and every time I go to express my feelings I just can't.

In one months time I went to your funeral and then to one of my very closest friends who also died in a car accident. She was also very young, only 24 with two young babies at home. It has made my life very difficult to try and understand why these things happen. As time goes by I can feel the two of you watching over all us to help us get by. Your mommy needs you more than anything. She has no idea how to get through each day without you by her side. She loved you more than life itself and my heart breaks to know that she is hurting so badly.

I know you are flying with angels because I can feel it. We miss you here but know that you were called home. We love you baby girl and tell my dear friend that I love and miss her terribly and I am doing all that I can to help her babies through this.

Till we meet again

Dear Brittany,

Hi sweetie. We all miss you very much. This tragedy has hit us all so very hard. Of course not as hard as it has hit your Mom.

I am so worried about her. Brittany, she is not doing so well and I don't know what to do for her. I pray every day for God to help ease the pain she feels in her heart. I know you are in a better place, at least that's what everyone says. I know in your Moms heart she believes that too, but she wants you here with her more than her life itself. She can barely get thru the day and I don't know what to do to help her.

Brittany, you were her life, you and your sisters, and now part of that life has been taken, a huge part. She doesn't know how to move on. I wish I had the words to help her thru it. I wish I could bring you back for her. Even if it was for one minute so she could hug and kiss you one last time and tell you how much she loves you. But you know all that. You two had a great relationship.

Brittany please be your Moms guardian angel and help her thru this.

We love and miss you so much. Always and forever you will be in our hearts.

Love ya always - Karen

Mileah and I were talking before practice today, about how its still weird that you're not around anymore. I had to do a homework assignment for English, and it connect with losing you. Every day is so hard, even just to wake up and go on with my daily routine.

I saw her picture and i knew EXACTLY who she was. i didn't know her personally but i knew who she was. This must be hard for her friends and family.

hey there baby girl.

i honestly dont know where to start and I feel kind of stupid leaving one of these messages because i dont feel like im really affecting anyone or anything like that, but I really just need to vent.

First of all, when I found out that you died, the first thought that came into my head was "It should have been me" I really dont think you deserve this and I would take your place any day. anything just for you to be back with all of these people who love you.

Everyday after math, I come outside expecting you to be there with your HUGE Roxy backpack and attack me so we can just laugh and be stupid together. I wish you were still here so I wouldnt have to worry about tragic accidents or anything, I wish I could just be carefree and worry free but now it feels like I have to watch my back because if I dont, something will happen to me or someone else I love.

Its so hard baby doll. I wish life was like it used to be. But wishing doesnt help. I just want to talk and laugh and gossip with you again. But it doesnt seem to be that way.

I love you so much Britter, If only you knew. <3 <3 <3 <3

To Brittany's Family,

I first heard about this website last night on a message board in NJ and to wear pink for someone from California named Brittany Curcio, a cheerleader for California All Stars.

It was very ironic because our gym, World Cup from NJ went to a competition for the first time in their 10 year history to Anaheim California this year. I remember getting there and saying to my daughter what a beautiful place, and I was so grateful that we had the opportunity to be there. I also remember watching all the amazing teams over there, but I distinctly remember there flying abilities and how we all were so amazed by the talent in that area of cheer.

I know Brittany was a flyer and oh, how beautiful she was, I'm sure she flew just as beautiful. The website is so amazing, I have been on it three times since yesterday. It is so touching how close mother and daughter were, and how lucky you were to have this amazing child to call your own.

I really don't know what you are feeling but I know it must hurt, it hurts me and I didn't even know her, but I will never forget her. I will think about her every time I look at my daughters, and when I'm at a cheerleading competition or just when I see a young lady with there mother laughing.

I would like to send my sincere sympathy to you and your family and know that cheerleaders and families in NJ are praying for you everyday.

God Bless you and your family.
