HELLO STAR I HOPE THAT THINGS ARE GETTING A LITTLE EASIER FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

I CAME TO THE WEB SITE TODAY AND I LOOKED AT THE BEAUTIFUL HEADSTONE OF BRITTANY AND ALL OTHER PICTURES THAT WAS TAKEN AT HER GRAVESIDE.

THE PICTURES WERE VERY NICE. I READ THE OTHER LETTERS THEY WROTE ON THE SITE, BUT WHEN I CAME ACROSS YOURS IT MADE FEEL SAD THAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH THIS MUCH PAIN.

ITS NOT YOUR FAULT THIS HAPPENED.  I HOPE THAT BRITTANY'S SISTERS ANDS BROTHERS ARE DOING OK. I KNOW IT'S HARD ON THEM TOO KNOWING THAT THEIR SISTER IS GONE.

PLEASE TAKE CARE.

I could not help but shed some tears when I saw the pictures of Brittany's headstone at her gravesite. As I looked at the few pictures that are on the main page of this website, I cried more, especially the 2 pictures of Baylee, Giavanna and Star at their "sissy's gravesite." What must be going on through these little girls minds? I was given the opportunity to speak with Star earlier this evening about a video I want to have put up on this website. If you want to see it, it is in her In Memory of My Space and it is in the comment section on the bottom right. http://www.myspace.com/brittanycurcio

I am always going to have my arms open to anyone who needs me. Brittany's smile and her bright eyes are always with me. I wear her bracelet everyday and go to her websites created for her often. Earlier today in one of my classes I had to write a one paragraph statement about someone I consider to have made an impact in my life. I wrote about Brittany. Having of never met her, she has impacted my life is such a tremendous way.

My e-mail address is at the top of this and my instant messenger (AIM) screen name is SoCalSunset21 if anyone ever wants to talk. <RIP BSC> God Bless.

Hello-

I did not have the good fortune of knowing Brittany Curcio but learned of her from a mutual friend. What a beautiful, lively young woman and what a blessing she undoubtedly was in so many lives. My heart goes out to everyone who loved her and continue to miss her. I have experienced loss and remember what a comfort it was to hear that there were people in the world thinking of my loved one and praying for her, I hope her family finds this same comfort.

Congratulations on your efforts to start an outreach program in Brittany's honor. If there is any way to be of service, I would love to contribute!

God bless.

I posted a comment with a short cartoon video on Brittany's dedication My Space account. It made me cry when i watched i first. It is about a little girl talking to her dad after he died in the 9-11 attacks. But if you change a few of the words around, I think it might be how Brittany's sisters feel about their "sissy" being gone. It is extremely emotional, but a good short video to watch. I am trying to change the words around and have one re-made.

RIP Brittany.

Hello! I was lookin at the California All-stars website because I was born there and I am an all-star cheerleader myself in Georgia.

I love California but I just wanted to say that I am soo sorry about what happened to Brittany. I looked at the website and I can see that she was loved very much by many. Just know that she is now in a better place and looking down on you all that she loves. To her family just know that she sees you and she still loves and keep your heads up high. You will all be together again one day.

My Dearest Brittany,

Today is 4 months since last we last shared a conversation. I talk to you all the time though. I can't wait to be with you again!

Cameron started kindergarten and is doing very well. It was a very sad day when I dropped him off for his first day. He did not even cry, but I did as I was walked back to my car to go to work. It was just yesterday you were starting school it seems.

I will forever have the most wonderful memories of the time we had together!!! You are my HERO and always will be be!!!

Sweet Dreams Baby Girl...

I Love You & I miss You!!! Can't Wait To Kiss You!!! Again & Again & Again!!!

Love,

Daddy

Dear Brittany,

It is 4 months today that you have been gone. I feel I'm just in a deep denial and can not except that this has happened to you. I still just believe that I will see you when I come home or you will somehow open your bedroom door and walk out like this never happened.

I don't want to believe that you will never again walk out of your bedroom!!

I don't want to believe that you will never touch the makeup still laying in front of your mirror just how you left it. (I can still see you sitting there every morning putting it on).

I don't want to believe that you will not grow up with your sisters like I always dreamed you would.

I don't want to believe that our relationship will no longer grow the way we both talked about how it would.

We go through life taking each day for granted never knowing how fragile we really are. I use to always tell you "Be good to one another because we never know what tomorrow will bring". I had no idea I would ever have to live with those words. It was something said to you to make you think about your life and to be a good person.  Who would of guessed it would come true for us? To you...why?

Why you Brittany? I just don't understand...

It just proves to everyone, and especially those of us still here, how easily our lives can be shattered in just one moment.

If I only could have heard you leave that night or thought to hide my keys... I could of changed everything.

I will never be able to live with the fact that I don't know what really happened to you that night.

I don't really know what you were doing, saying, nothing...

I wasn't there in your last moments and it kills me inside to not know the truth and not know the last words you said. I will have to live the rest of my life with nothing and it seems so unfair. You were my daughter, my life, my heart and soul. I deserve to know everything about you.

My heart just aches day after day for you. I will NEVER be the same without you. Nothing gets easier for me. My suffering just continues moment after moment, hour after hour. Other people will go on but I will never let you go. I will never accept that this has happened and be able to go on. I have to live my life for your sisters but I will never be able to go on without you. My life is broken and there is no way to mend the situation.

I love you more then life itself and I hate being without you. It is so painful to go through life without you. My pain is deeper everyday.

I JUST DON'T WANT TO BE WITHOUT YOU!!! How do I live with that?? I feel so consumed with pain and frustration. How can it all just be over?? Its all so unfair this happen to you. You were so full of kindness and love. You had such a compassion for life, family and friends.

I pray to GOD all the time to please give me some kind of miracle to see you again. I beg and plead that I'm your Mother and I deserve this. Hoping somehow it works...

I wish I could have one more chance to just sit and talk, hear you laugh and love you all over again. That is the only thing that will ever make me feel better is to be with you again my love...

I love you always and forever,

Mommy

Hey Brittany,

I am Sara Kinsfather. I don't know if you remember me, but i cheered with you for Grossmont La Mesa Pop Warner.

Ever since i heard about what happened i haven't been able to stop thinking about you, and how i would of never thought that anything like that would happen to anyone that i knew. I know we weren't that great of friends back then, and i regret not getting to know you as well as i wanted to.

You turned out to be a sweet and beautiful girl. I always remember that even though we weren't the best of friends that you could always bring a smile to my face. And i wanted to tell Star that i am deeply sorry for your loss, brittany was a great girl, and for that she will never be forgotten. I know that she is with God now, and i know that she has touched the lives of many.


God Bless and R.I.P
Love Always,

I came back to your dedication website, Brittany to read what people are writing about you. My eyes are now completely soaked in tears and I can feel each drop running down my cheek. Even months after your death, it is still hard to believe what happened. Whenever I go back home to San Diego, I drive past the site and look at the tree.

I never knew you, but I did go to the Tree Planting and spoke to your mom. She's a very strong woman and I do not know where she gets the strength. I read about how your sisters are starting cheer and it is wonderful that they are following in your footsteps.

Star, how did the Charger pre-season dedication go? Do you have any pictures from the game? I would love to see them. Thanks!!

Brittany, I wear my Brittany Star bracelet everyday and it is hard for me to explain to people what the bracelet means. But I tell them and they all pray for you that you are safe in heaven. RIP Angel.

i was listening to this song the other day and i thought of you so here it goes..

There You'll Be

By: Faith Hill - The Pearl Harbor Soundtrack

When I think back
On these times
And the dreams
We left behind
I'll be glad 'cause
I was blessed to get
To have you in my life
When I look back
On these days
I'll look and see your face
You were right there for me

[Chorus:]
In my dreams
I'll always see you soar
Above the sky
In my heart
There will always be a place
For you for all my life
I'll keep a part
Of you with me
And everywhere I am
There you'll be

Well you showed me
How it feels
To feel the sky
Within my reach
And I always
Will remember all
The strength you
Gave to me
Your love made me
Make it through
Oh, I owe so much to you
You were right there for me

[Repeat chorus]

'Cause I always saw in you
My light, my strength
And I want to thank you
Now for all the ways
You were right there for me
You were right there for me
For always

love you brit.<3

hey brittany.

i was typing up my essay for apec and i just thought i should stop by and say hey.

i'm glad that the chargers game was in honor of your memory, you are too much of a good person to ever forget. i'm sorry i wasn't able to go, but i'm sure everyone had an awesome time. school's starting thursday and it'll sure be weird not seeing your sweet face in the halls. i wish you were still here, as we all do. we never cease to think about you, and we never will. rest in peace, brittany star <3

to the curcio/mumma family.

you all are staying so strong and i admire you all for that. i can't imagine how hard this is for all of you...but brittany is watching over all of you, as she is watching over the rest of us. i'm sure she's smiling. =D

thank you for the memory card, it's up on my wall next to her picture and the card that i recieved at her wake. =)

i hope you all are holding up well.

Brittany -

I continue to think about you...and your family a million times a day. I really wish I had the magic words to give your family some peace, comfort and the understanding they truly need and desire right now. I wish we could all stop running through the various scenarios of "what ifs" and "whys" - perhaps rid all of us of this enormous pit in our stomachs. Darn it Britt, we really miss you! This just isn't getting easier.

I fly back into San Diego on Wednesday, the 24th. The four month anniversary of your passing. I'll be stopping to pay my respects, sweetie.

Keep a watchful eye over your Mommy, Daddy and the rest of your family. They love and miss you dearly...as do I.

God Bless and RIP, beautiful girl.

Friends, Brittany, her Family, and Everyone...

I just got home from the charger event. I can't even put into words the feelings that I have right now. Cheer is something that I loved and love more than most things. Cheer gave me an outlet...somewhere that I could scream..and yell..and it was okay because I was supposed to do that. Cheer gave me friends and memories that I will cherish deeply for the rest of my life. Cheer...gave me Brittany. As many people know, I had to stop cheering because of my moms cancer. For many girls that cheerlead...the very thought of not being able to cheer anymore...is like getting hit by lightening. And it was...I was extremely distraught over it...but i had to put the events of my life into perspective.

You won't even know...how many times a week I look back on my life and say.."gosh....I wish I could cheer...just ONE MORE TIME." You have no idea how many times I catch myself doing old routines...and wish "just one more time on the floor...just one more time at a game..just give me one more time"

Today....that wish was granted. I was able to join some of my former cheer friends...on the field of the Chargers game...with the Charger girls. How many girls get to do that???...not too many that's for sure. I was able to live out my passion...one more time. Sure...we weren't all with it, and we didn't know what we were doing sometimes. But we all had fun.

I got to cheer again...you have no idea how much something like this affects me emotionally. I got to cheer...in honor of Brittany. There was this moth/butterfly thing, that kept circling around Baylee at the game. It was very sweet. I will be able to take this experience with me for the rest of my life.

I got to be a cheerleader again....and I thank everyone that was able to make that possible. I thank all of my friends that have given me memories throughout the years as well.

I love you guys with all of my heart. And I love you little miss Brittany Star...

So thank you...for giving me a memory I will cherish forever...

I think we made Brittany proud...

Always and Forever,
Tanya Nicole Luxenburg

Hey Brittany,

 I've been thinking about you a lot lately and how much i miss you. I'm still in shock about all of this and I can't believe that something this tragic, and sad could happen to someone so wonderful and beautiful. You should be here enjoying your summer with your friends and enjoying life. Its not fair that your life was taken away from you, you deserve to be here more than anyone. You've showed me how precious life is, and that tomorrow is not always promised, so we should be thankful for everyday that we receive because we never know when it will be our last. I miss you so much and i'm so thankful that you were my flyer for pop warner, and i'm glad i was there with you when you were over coming fears of flying again because of your broken leg from the previous year. I'm so thankful that i knew you and you've changed my life forever. Not a day goes by when i don't think about how much i miss you and the impact you've had on my life and many other people's lives. I'll never forget you Brittany. I hope that heaven is treating you well, and most importantly i hope that you're happy and having a great time up there. I can't wait to see you again one day. It will truly be the best day of my life. I love you Brittany. Rest In Peace Sweet Angel

Love Always,

dear brittany's family,

I don't know brittany.... but i have heard about her through my best friend brianna from CA cheer. When brianna went to cheer try-outs, she texed me her life has changed. the next morning, she told me the news. brianna was so sad, she got teary-eyed and she wrote this long statement that made some of my friends cry.

brittany is such a beautiful girl, and every time i go on this site, it makes me cry by listening "flying with angels". She reminds me of my best friend brianna - that's when it hurts, when your loved one gets hurt.

I just wish she never past. sorry for your loss.... brittany, rest in peace and i want you to know u have touched my heart by looking at these pictures of you.

Love always,

i know you are watching over each and everyone of us down here and i hope u truly know how much we all miss you.

i am helping your mom with pop warner for baylee and you would be so proud of her and gia. she is the cutest little flyer and always tries her hardest. and then you look over and see little gia doing the cheers with them...i know amazing for how old she is. i looked at their beauty and they reminded me of you and i know you would be sooo proud of them both for what they have accomplished.

the other day baylee told me that its ok and that you will be born into another life and it will be good. it made me smile to think about how much she and the rest of your family and friends truly care about you. i will always and forever miss you and i will never forget you...ever!

i love you brittany and my life will never be the same.

Not a day has gone by that I don't think about Brittany. I wear my "BRITTANY STAR" bracelet everyday, and when people ask me about it, I pause for a second to gain the strength and tell them about it.

I'm coaching VPW this year, and at camp I saw how RB had Brittany's name on the back of their shirts. Every time I walked past an RB girl, it hurt. To see her name is just another reminder that she's really gone. Star, I saw you there on Sunday. I wanted so badly to go and say hi, but for some reason I couldn't bring myself to do it. I'm sorry, my mom and I talk about it all the time, and we both wish there was something we could do, anything.

We love you, and miss Brittany so much.

RIP Brittany, I'll always love and miss you...

 Hi Star,

I don't even know where to begin. Jackie was on the net yesterday looking for some cheer stuff for her little Jr. Pee wee girls, she's now a trainer at GLM, anyway she stumbled on Brittany's site. To say we are devastated is such an understatement!

I know we haven't seen you guys for years but we still think of you and laugh about our trip to Maui and you getting in trouble at the airport for having the banana peal in your backpack! Baylee and Brittany were so little then! We will always remember the funny, beautiful little girl with those hauntingly beautiful blue eyes. She grew into a beautiful young lady.

Earlier I said Jackie stumbled on the web site, but we all believe that she was led here. The girls counted all their money and will be sending it to the foundation later today. We all feel so strongly that it is such a GREAT idea. Just so you know, school starts soon and they are looking forward to passing your message along.

Brittany touched more people than you can possibly imagine. And I cannot begin to know your pain. Please take comfort in knowing that she is with God and with all the people she has touched and will touch in the future.

 With our love, and prayers, Toni, Jackie and Felicia Williams

hey brittany,

how are you babe?  i know you are doing better then me.  i wish i could talk to you 1 on 1 and tell you all kinds of things that need to be said.

brittany, can you please help your dad?  can you please let him know that you are ok and that he is going to be ok, and can you please tell him that he needs to be strong?  i know that you are looking down on him watching him.

he misses you so much.  he doesn't know what to do now that your gone.  he doesn't want to live anymore.  can you please tell him to just be strong because as he is your dad, he is my dad too and without him i don't know what i would do.

i love your dad like as if he was my dad. i guess what i am trying to say is that he loves you alot and he can't accept the fact that you are gone.  i cant accept it - nobody wants to accept it but you are gone.

tell your dad that you will meet up again but the next time that you meet up it will be in a better place.  a place where there in no pain were nobody has to worry about anything.  a place of happiness.  but you will meet again and you will be together forever as i will be there too.  And the rest of your family and my family.

tony if you are reading this i love you and don't worry about anything and be strong because you will be with her again but for right now all you have left of her is pictures the good times and memories, but one day you will meet with her, so don't worry

i got to go i love you brittany and i love you to tony i miss you brittany see you later........

love always your brother primo vazquez

I have always loved Brittany and I always think of her. I met her in RB pop warner and I remember how afraid she was of going up in a elevator lib, because that was the stunt she broke her leg in. I wanted to let her family know that Suzanne and I are always here for you and if you need anything just ask.

 Brittany will always remain in our hearts.

Dear Star and family-

 I came across this website 3 months ago and posted a comment, and that was when I was in Carlsbad. Now I moved to Singapore, and I'm with my friend and we were checking out things on myspace when we came across someone's profile that said "Brittany Star Curcio RIP." Then I remembered and came to this website reading all the comments. Me and my friend are very sorry for your loss I know it is very hard to lose a very close family member. She is in heaven now with all the angels and all of you will definitely see her someday, and you will again reunite as a full family. Again, I am truly sorry for your loss.

 I used to live in Rancho Bernardo, and heard through my nieces about Brittany. I never knew her or your family. But my heart aches for you. Recently losing my father to cancer, I do know the pain of losing someone so very dear. Her being a daughter is so much more painful. Please accept my condolences. However I know she is with you always. You know that in your heart by the little things that happen day to day, they are your sweet child telling you, "Mom" it's ok, I am fine and God has so many things planned for me. She knows your love and she knows your pain, so be sure and stop and see the little things that happen, they are her way of telling you she is never away.

 I had a special thing happen to me. A couple of days after my father passed on, I was at the gas station in Rancho Bernardo, I got out of my car and looked down to see several pennies scattered on the ground, 12 to be exact. Now some people may not think it odd, but as I reached down to pick up each penny, I was amazed to find each one was Heads UP!! Now how often does that happen? Every now and then I will find a penny and they are all heads up!! This I take as a sign from My father. "Pennies from Heaven" God Bless

My Dearest Brittany,

My heart is in so much pain for you. Everyday I just feel like the pain is deeper and deeper. I feel so shattered. Words can no longer explain the pain I feel that you are not here with us. It is just so overwhelming that I just feel I'm dying inside. I just want to bring you back and make this all better and knowing there is NOTHING I can do just seems so unbearable.

My very dear best friend let me just recently hear this song and it took me several times to get through it before I could actually listen to it all. Once I did, I realized how much it meant to me and how it says everything I feel about what has happen. I somehow hope you can hear it and know what I'm trying to say.  Here it is my precious baby girl....


 

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

 

I Sure Miss You

Artist - Crabb Family

Album - Prayer In Motion



Verse I
If life could only bring again, the days I took for granted when
To hear your voice was just a call away
Oh what I'd give for just some time, to say the things that slipped my mind
There's so much now I'd really like to say
But I can never go back when we did the things we did back then
I'll store those precious memories in my mind
I'll take what you've instilled in me; I'll try to be all I can be
And walk the path that you have left behind

Chorus
I sure miss you; life will never be the same with you not here
Each passing day has brought much pain
But with God's grace my strength remains
I sure miss you, but heaven's sweeter with you there

Verse II
The little things that seemed so small are now gold in a memory vault
I cherish every one I have of you
Now I can see and recognize the part you played to shape my life
I often see you in the things I do
In God's design and master plan He saw the hurting hearts of man
As we would say goodbye to those so dear
So with our family and friends we'll be together once again
We'll view all heaven's splendor hand in hand

 


Also another very dear precious friend just emailed me this poem that I just have to share with you. I cried all the way through it because every word was so true. Here it is....

We are connected, My child and I
by an invisible cord, not seen by the eye.
It's not like the cord that connects us 'til birth
This cord can't be seen by any on Earth.

This cord does its work right from the start.
It binds us together, attached to my heart.
I know that it's there, though no one can see
The invisible cord from my child to me.

The strength of this cord is hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed, it can't be denied.
It's stronger than any cord man could create.
It withstands the test, can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you are not here with me,
The cord is still there,

but no one can see.


It pulls at my heart, I am bruised...I am sore
But this cord is my lifeline, as never before.

I am thankful that God connects us this way
A mother and child--Death can't take it away!



I can't even explain the pain that we all feel losing someone as precious as you. Somehow it just doesn't seem fair and is so hard to understand why? If only we could have more answers!!

I love you so much my Brittany and there will never be a day of my life that I don't grieve for you and long to feel that special hug and very sweet kiss. So much has been taken from all of us not having you here.

All my love to you now and forever...


Sweet dreams my love...
Mommy

Star & Family,

I haven't posted here in a while. I still come back to the site every day and you, Brittany and your family are always in my thoughts.

Soon it will be 4 months since the worst night of your life, yet it's still so hard to believe that Brittany's gone. Although I missed her birthday party I enjoyed looking at the pictures - and seeing how happy she made you and Tony by returning to say "thanks for the party". I am sure an "I love you both" was said also. You were both incredible parents to Brittany... as you are with Brittany's siblings.

I couldn't help but smile and think of Brittany today and how proud she must have been watching Baylee be a flyer and win an award today at Cheer Fun Day!

hey brit...

 

your sweet 16 was good. i know you saw everything. your mom did SUCH a good job even though it was super tough on her. I had fun playing with gia and baylee.  gia built you a birthday cake in the sand. it was cute.

 

Me and your mom had lunch yesterday at oscars.... then we went to see dukes of hazard. we had fun. and we talked about you a lot. neither one of us can really believe this still.

 

everytime i know i'm going somewhere that i'm going to see your mom i expect you to still jump out of the car to give me a huge hug...or when i went to your house i expected you to run downstairs with a big smile because you knew we were going to have so much fun.

 

its way hard with out you.

 

i know we didn't talk that much anymore...but it was hard because i moved and we both were in high school. but i wish we would've kept in touch.

 

but i love you girl. and i'll never forget you...no one ever will!!

I happened to stumble upon this site... What a beautiful girl. I was in a tragic crash when I was sixteen that paralyzed me for life. I have dedicated the last 11 years of my life educating other teens on mistakes I made and why life is so precious. I too was a cheerleader and dancer- but I now have legs that can not even take steps without assistance. I speak regularly to all local schools on driving and teen issues. Please contact me if there is anything I can do. Brittany was and will always be a beautiful girl.

Hey Brittany and the Curcio/Mumma family. I'm glad that Brittany's Sweet Sixteen went over well. The set up was so pretty (as I saw in the pictures). I'm glad Brittany (the butterfly) came back to tell you guys "Thanks" for the party. I'm sure it was a moment you all shall treasure for the rest of your lives. I hope you guys are holding up well and just know that Brittany's watching over you guys and misses you tons just as much as you miss her. You all are such beautiful people and I'm glad Brittany had you guys in her life. Rest In Peace, Brittany. We all miss you and love you.

Brittany-

I cannot believe that your sweet 16 has come and gone. I am sorry you could not spend it with your family and friends. It was truly a beautiful day. I know that the butterfly that returned to your parents was you flying back to say good bye one last time. Hopefully you are watching us live out our lives hoping you were still with us.

Always loved-never forgotten

I love you,


Katelyn
