Hey baby girl, your party was awesome. Although I didn't get to stay long I enjoyed being there. It wasn't the same as if you were there but I know you were in spirit. I miss you. I know we hadn't talked in like 7 years, and even though we were not close close I feel a huge emptiness in my life. I regret not staying in touch. I still can't get into my head that you are really gone, and that you won't get a chance to meet my kids. I show them your pics alot because they see me looking at it alot, I tell them "this is Brittany and she was a very wonderful person. I tell them stories about you and how special you are and what a difference you made in everyone's lives. Please watch over them. I heard you came bake to your b-day,i'm glad your mom and dad needed it. Well bye for now i'll write again soon. love&miss you. I'll never forget you.

Thank you so much for sharing pictures of Brittany's birthday. Such a touching celebration, I truly wish I could have been there. The pictures are priceless. Some pictures brought tears to my eyes, others awe in the artwork by Coco and memory box made in Brittany's honor by Star, Melinda and Baylee, others a smile across my lips to see everyone gathered together...and most importantly I felt such warmth and comfort seeing the butterfly come back.

 Star and Tony, I am amazed at the wonderful little lady that you brought into this world. Her beauty, kindness, warmth and love of life is truly a reflection of who you are and what you taught her. You are my heroes and I will continue to pray that your pain will ease and you find some peace in your hearts in the days to come.

God bless.

hey star!

I just wanted to let you know that we were thinking about you and your family at cheer camp when it was Britts bday!! i hope everything went well. I think about Britt everyday and try to visit this site and her myspace as much as I can because it gives me a feeling that she will always be with us.

i miss her so much but this will just make us stronger in life. it's so sad that this had to happen and sometimes I still don't believe it and i think that she is going to call me one last time.

On a different note, I believe my mom told me that there was a popwarner meeting on monday? I will try and come and I am filling out the paperwork as we speak. I am sooo excited to be student demo-ing for you! let me know of anything I can do!

Hi Brittany, i don't know you.. i never did. I used to cheer for CA when I was in 8th grade, and so i always check up on the website every now and then, this time I saw something different. I'm very sorry.. my biggest fear in life is dying, i've never had anyone close to me die.. and it's hard to look at people my age that have had their lives taken away from them. It must be hard, and I bet you miss your family. It's obvious that they love you very much, and your lucky to have them care for you like that. I hope one day, when i'm in heaven, I will get to meet you because we share a lot of things in common. I hope that things get better for your family, and i hope their strength gets stronger everyday. God bless you and your family. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Love, Samantha

My Dear Sweet Baby Girl,

I wanted to wish you a very Happy Sweet 16...
I feel this has been one of the hardest days of all. I don't know any parent that doesn't look forward to the day their daughter turns 16 and has the big Sweet 16 Birthday party.

I hope you enjoyed your party. I tried to do everything we had talked about having for you before all this happen. When it was all over all I could feel was an overwhelming sadness that it will be the last BIG Birthday party I will ever have for you. I just cant tell you how bad that hurts...

Valerie brought live butterflies for the family to release and it was such a beautiful thing for all of us and over an hour later one came back to the was truly amazing!! I know it was you... Thank you for coming back to us. You even let me hold you and take a picture with me and your dad. Its a memory of that day I will never forget. I felt it was a true blessing from God and you to tell us all how much you are with us.

I love you so much and miss you with all my heart. I wish some way I could change everything and you could come back to me. I live in deep sadness without you everyday. I know my life will never be the same without you and it just seems impossible to go on. You are truly my Hero and I will always cherish everything you brought to my life. The short 16 years you gave me were the best years of my life...I cant thank you enough for making me the proudest mother ever. I just always hope and pray that I gave you just as much happiness that you brought to me everyday of my life.

Happy Birthday my little sweetheart...

I Love you always and forever...

Hey Brittany!

 I hope you had a wonderful 16th birthday :) Hopefully you were with your family and friends while they celebrated your life at the beach. I went to the beach today to throw flowers in the ocean for Jake. I hope you got the chance to meet him and he gave you a huge birthday hug from all of us! I threw an extra pink flower in the water, too. It's for you, I know he wouldn't mind. I'm sure everyone appreciates when you shine from Heaven to say hello. It's a hard thing to miss having two wonderful people like you and Jake here with us and we think about you all the time. I hope all is well with you in Heaven and you had a wonderful birthday. I will talk to you soon!

I cant tell you how just surfing the site has changed me. I cried and cant stop. I feel for your family but I know that she is in a better place and loving every moment of it.

 As a fellow cheerleader I dedicate my cheer career to her. she seemed like a lovely young lady and I feel a connection to her through cheerleading.

 I wish her family and friends all the best throughout your guys' life.

Sixteen Candles
Roy Orbison

Happy birthday, happy birthday, baby
Oh, I love you so

Sixteen candles make a lovely light
But not as bright as your eyes tonight (as your eyes tonight) (oh) Blow out the candles, make your wish come true For I’ll be wishing that you love me, too (that you love me, too)

You’re only sixteen (sixteen)
But you’re my teenage queen (you’re my queen)
You’re the prettiest, loveliest girl I’ve ever seen (I’ve ever seen) (oh!)

Sixteen candles in my heart will glow
For ever and ever for I love you so (for I love you so)

You’re only sixteen (sixteen)
But you’re my teenage queen (you’re my queen)
Oh, you’re the prettiest, loveliest girl I’ve ever seen (I’ve ever seen) (oh!)

Sixteen candles in my heart will glow
For ever and ever for I love you so (for I love you so)
For I love you so!!!

Dear Brittany,

Happy sweet 16th birthday. I have never met you, but I have friends that cheered with you. When I heard about this horrible accident I wanted to know more bcuz so many of my friends were hurt by this tragedy.

As I learned more and read more about you, I began to feel so sorry for your family and even you, as if somehow now I feel like I knew you. I have a bracelet and I just think about this all the time.

Many of my friends have passed away in car accidents this year, its unbelievable. Every time I read this site I break down in tears, becuz I have younger siblings and I wouldn't want them to lose me.

I want to just pray your families will make it. You seemed like a special girl and I hope one day i'll be able to meet you finally in heaven.

hope you enjoy every part of your birthday today!

I am sure that you are looking down from above and hearing all the well wishes we are sending your way.

Please send some big hugs, kisses and comfort to your friends and family who are celebrating your life down at the beach today. I wish I could be there to join them, however since I can not...I am hosting a luncheon at my office this afternoon in your honor. With all these celebrations, you are probably seeing more birthday candles lit in your honor today than you ever could have imagined.

It's still so hard to believe that you aren't here, Brittany. Everyone misses you so incredibly much and we still want to believe that this is all a very bad dream. You will never be forgotten, honey...and we all wish MORE THAN ANYTHING that you could be here sharing this truly special day with all of us.

God bless you, beautiful Angel - and have a Happy Birthday! You are so very loved - and deeply missed each and every day.

Before I entered this site I was searching for cheer gyms and I came across California All-Stars. I was looking through their many pictures and seemed to have stumbled on one very beautiful young girl. This girl looked about my age so I wanted to see what had been so horrible to have taken her from her wonderful family. As I read through the letters on this site my heart went out to the Curcio family as well as Brittany herself. It also made me think of how things in life can change so quickly. I would just like the family of Brittany Curcio to know that my heart is with you and as it seems Brittany will be truly missed.

Dear Mr.& Mrs.Curcio,

 I did not have the joy of knowing Brittany personally, but from what I have heard she is a great person. I am a member of the AVID program as was Brittany. This year being a senior I am going to do my best to keep Brittany's spirit alive in the class as well as inform all of the under- classmen of the dangers that were involved in the tragic accident.

When this tragedy happened I did everything that I could to help. I was the person who got Ralph's Grocery Company to donate flowers, but I think that Mr. Trecker kept them for her chair the day after the ceremony.

I am very sorry for your loss, and I am willing to help in anyway. I would also like to be a part of the STAAR program that Rayni started. I am a friend of both Rayni and Eugenia who were close to her. I saw what an impact her passing away had on the entire school, for that I am devastated that I didn't get a chance to meet her.

 If there is any way that I can help please let me know. ~Alea

I never knew Brittany, but a lot of my friends did. I cheer, and I can see what a great person she was. I come to this site almost every day, and each time, it makes me cry, even though I didn't know her. I think that what her mom is doing is absolutely great, taking the tragic incident that happened to her daughter and turning it into something positive and trying to help others.

I know that what you went through was probably so horrible and hard and you think your dreaming at times, and I could only imagine what the pain is like since I have never lost anyone close to me. I think Brittany was so pretty, and in every picture you can just see the love between her and her siblings, and mom and dad. You can tell that she loved her friends & family just from the glitter in her eyes in pictures of them together. I think that even though I didn't know her or you, that you should remember that.

Well I just want to end this with the fact that there is always a bright side to every situation, and I know that she is in heaven smiling down on her family and friends. God Bless the Curcio's for their loss of a young, beautiful girl who touched so many lives.

Brittany we all miss you still and even more on your sweet sixteen. I was listening to the song by new found glory and I was thinking of you. I got teary eyed. I know we never hung out outside of school, but I was glad I was one of your friends. You kept me company during geometry class. You made fun of me for singing the nightmare before x-mas songs at the assembly, but I knew you were kidding!

I miss you so much. You are my bestest friend forever. I can't believe its been 3 months, seems like its been years. Now that your gone, my life will never be the same. 

I want to hear the phone ring a million times a day again and see your number every time on caller id. I want to hear your laugh and see the brightness in the room once you've entered. I want to relive all the great times we spent together, like sliding down the stairs on the little plastic door and running into the wall. The times when we played boats and made neat-os and playing hide n seek in the dark, dancing around the room and singing to old music that we listened to when we were little. I want to quote lines from Napolean Dynomite with you and freak dance to Scary Movie 3 theme music-haha.

I just want to thank you for the wonderful 15 years that we all had with you. You are a wonderful person and the bestest friend a girl can ever wish for. I look at Erin and Gia and I see us.

I love you more than words can ever be able to say. I will forever treasure the times we spent together. Shine bright our little star.

love you much!

I just wanted to say that Brittany was a beautiful girl. She was the nicest person, I would always count on her to talk about something when I had a problem or just needed someone to talk to. She was such a sweet generous little girl .

I met her on the way to Florida for a competition. I was on junior coed and she was on senior novice and we had to sit next to each other on the plane, and of course when you are just meeting someone you are a little shy but she made it so easy to just talk to her, it was like I knew her my whole life. We could talk about anything just forever and just have so much fun. She would always give me advice, and correct me if I was right or wrong. I would always tell my friends about her and they would just be in total shock that I had a 15 year old friend that was sweet to me. I was just so happy, it was like she was my older sister except we didn't fight as much as siblings usually do. She was the sister that I never had!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then it came time to watch the teams on the little screen that they had set up, and when my team came on the screen she just started screaming and yelling ,yeah yeah that's Treasure. I was like really happy so of course I did the same thing for her and she was really happy too.

I was so happy that we met! On the last day that I saw her, it was at the banquet and she was so beautiful, and she was always like, Treasure come here hang out with me and so I did. We would just talk and talk and laugh and laugh and had so much fun. When I had to leave my parents were waiting outside, I gave her a big hug and little did I know that was the last hug I would ever give her.

Then when we were at tryouts for California All Stars we all did really good and realized that Brittany wasn't there, and she said that she was going to be there and try out. Then my coach called all of us over at the end of tryouts and she was saying how well we did, and then she started talking about the loss of Brittany, and I was just like no it can't be my Brittany.

Your friend

Even though I am only 12 years old if the parents need some one to talk to I am there for them and they have my number and e-mail address if they need to talk to someone.

Hey Brittany,

It has been months since your passing and I still cannot seem to find the things I want so badly to say to you. I have not attended any of your memorials, in fear. See, you are the third friend of mine that had passed away this year. Now that I write that, it seems like a dumb excuse. I am FOR SURE coming to your sweet sixteenth birthday. I'm looking forward to meeting your mom and family. We had classes together and talked, but I never got to know you real well, the way I wish I could now.

About a month before your passing, I went out to lunch with my friend Lauren, and your brother Geoff. At the time I had no clue that you two even knew each other! I remember now him speaking of his family, and you in particular. He really loves you.

You have truly changed my life and outlook on things. You've made me a better person. You are so beautiful; so caring. I think of you everyday, and miss you.

The other day I was out driving around San Diego with friends, as we have always done... just to get away from the hassle of worrying about our jobs, summer school and moving away next month for college. One of my friends at first refused to put on her seatbelt. She said that since we were only driving for a few minutes more, that she did not have to. I immediately pulled over (on the side of the freeway) and told her about Brittany's accident and how her passing away could have been stopped had she worn her seatbelt. I burst out in tears as I continued on with the details. Well, long story short, my friend put on her seatbelt and vowed to always wear it from now on.

We all had a little moment of silence. What was going through my mind, was could I have just saved my friends life? If I got hit while driving or if I lost control of my car, there was a good chance that my friend who was not wearing her seatbelt, would not be here today. That's the lesson I learned from Brittany's accident. Think first, be smart, for you may not get a second chance.

I still think and pray about Brittany Star Curcio up in Heaven and I wear the pink bracelet everyday as a reminder. God Bless.

I didn't know Brittany. I came across this website after looking at the California All-stars website. I cheered for the Kentucky Wolfpack and met the California All-stars at WSF in Las Vegas, in April. I was very sad to see that such a beautiful young lady was taken so suddenly. I know the pain you all must be feeling.

July 12th made one year since my friend Diana past away in a car accident, and it still hurts just as bad as the day it happened. Websites like these where you can come and just share memories and feelings are so special. I encourage everyone who visits this to sign. You have no idea how much it means to the people who have lost someone. You can sign it more than once, in fact sign it as often as you can! I visit the one for Diana every day and someone as always added something new, even after a year has past.

To Brittany's family and friends. I know that what you are going through must be so difficult, but just remember this quote that was one of Diana's favorites, "never regret something that once made you smile" and from what I can tell Brittany made you smile all the time! I also wanted to say I think it is awesome that you have started the STAAR program, it will make a difference in many peoples lives. My prayers are with you and I'm sure Brittany is watching over all of you! GOD BLESS!

 I didn't know Brittany but I did pop warner for the San Marcos knights one year and I believe that I met Brittany at one of the pop warner midget football games. Brittany was a very nice girl. I am sad that she is gone and I hope the family and close friends will be okay.

Dear Brittany and Family,

 I never knew Brittany, I didn't even go to her school. but many friends of mine did know her and reading her guestbook and myspace and looking at pictures really shows how wonderful of a person she was. I really wish I did have a chance to meet her, she seemed like an amazing girl. When I first heard about the news and read what people had to say, I never even had the slightest idea what they were going through or the pain they must be feeling.

Two weeks ago on July 1 my best friend of 13 years passed away in a car accident. I never thought I'd be saying this, but now I know how you must be feeling. It's a horrible feeling that can not be described, and I just wanted to tell you that a day hasn't gone by where I haven't prayed for Brittany and her family. You are always in my thoughts and my prayers... along side with my friend, Jake.

Brittany, I hope all is well in heaven, please take care of Jake for me. I wish we could've met but hopefully you and Jake are having a great time up there. I'll see you later.

Hey Brittany. I think about you every day…all of the fun memories that we had together. I wonder what heaven is like? I bet you are partying with Jesus! I miss you so much. My life will never be the same without you. Things just started to get better for me…but then Nic Lowe died a couple of days ago…You loved Nic so much…You thought he was so cute…and now you are both gone.

I pray each and every day that life will get easier…but it doesn’t. I miss you so much and the pain just won’t go away. The pain of knowing that I will never see you again. The pain of knowing that I will never feel the warmth of your hugs or the sound of your voice. Even saying those words gives me chills. I know that you have a new body and are sitting on Jesus’ lap, smiling. It will never be goodbye for you and I but just see you later and I love you!

Love you Forever and Always,


< Your Best Friend Forever and Always…The Three Amiga's >
