The Christmas card is beautiful! What a beautiful way to recognize and commemorate Brittany and her sisters.

To Brittany's loved ones... time DOES heal the pain you all are feeling. As time goes on, you will always grieve your loss, but you will begin to memorialize Brittany more and celebrate the wonderful life she lived.

I believe the STAAR program is the first step of this process. There is a reason this happened to Brittany, and I hope that someday you will discover that reason.

I hope you had a nice Christmas and I wish all of Brittany's family and friends a very Happy New Year.

Dear Star,

My friend shared this poem with me and I thought I should share it with you. She lost for friend to cancer in Aug. She also has a website - www.thegingerallenstory.com 

MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below with tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.

The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tear, for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear, but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring, for it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart. But I am not so far away, we really aren't apart.

So be happy for me dear ones, you know I hold you dear. And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above. I sent you each a memory of my undying love.

After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold. It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.

Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do. For I can't count the blessings or love he has for you.

So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away the tear, remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

Thinking of you,

Amy Morini

i don't know what to do. im so sad. distrought. over brittany star.. randomly i just looked at her screen name and read her aim profile and stuff. i now am crying. i dont know how someone can just be gone.

her mom set her cell phone back up so you can call her phone to hear her voice again.. i want to call but im scared. i didnt even really know her. im so sad i dont know what to do. she was probably such a wonderful person i see what everyone write about her.

if i could take one thing in my life back it would be to go back and to get to know brittany star curcio, so that maybe i could stop her from doing what she did. she took her moms car and she lost control and hit a light pole or something i dont even know.

i dont know what to do with myself. its 4 in the morning. i just want to see her, i want to hear her but i dont want to call because ill just start calling over and over again. i dont know i dont know i just want her to come back for even just a second so i can see her and just know that shes alright where she is. i know shes okay now and better than ever but i just cant imagine what her parents are going through.. i barely, if even at all, knew her... and it is effecting me this much then i cant imagine what it would be like to be her parents.

i love you brittany i love you i love you i dont know you but i wish i did so bad. i dont even know how to express this right now im here in my room on the floor typing this and im just wondering exactly what brittany is doing right now, right this second. i wonder what she would be doing, if she had lived.such a beautiful girl so beautiful so young. 15 years old i cant imagine.

i love you brittany. i dont know what to say to express this i dont know how i need to get this out i dont know i need to get this out listening to this song probably isnt helping me to be happy and realize that shes in a place where i wish i was.

i cant even comprehend that she is gone. i keep thinking of her beautiful smile. i want her to come down. and i wo

God's Boxes 

I have in my hands two boxes, 
That God gave me to hold. 
He said, "Put all your sorrows in the Black Box, 
And all your joys in the Gold." 
  
I heeded His words, and in the two boxes, 
Both my joys and sorrows I stored, 
But though the Gold became heavier each day, 
The Black was as light as before. 
 
With curiosity I opened the Black Box, 
to see what it was all about, 
In the base of the box was a hole, 
in which all my sorrows had fallen out.
 
I showed the hole to God, and mused, 
"I wonder where my sorrows could be?" 
He smiled a gentle smile and said, 
"My child, they're all here with me." 
 
I asked God why He gave me the boxes, 
"Why the Gold and the Black with the hole?"
"My child, the Gold is for you to count your blessings, 
The Black is for you to let go.

 

Star, remember there is no one better to help you through this than our Father in Heaven.  Stay close to Him...He loves you so much.  He will never leave you; you are carved on the palm of His Hand. 

"...Love Yourself..."

Your sister-friend,

Christine

Thank you to all of you that came to share in the decorating of Brittany's tree last night. Our family really appreciates all your continued love and support.

We want you to know how honored we are that you continue to show up to everything we have to honor Brittany's life.

Because of you we are able to continue to survive this terrible tragedy. Because of you being there for us it gives us hope. You come and share with us your tears, hugs, faith, laughs and especially you're memories of Brittany and that is how we are able to continue to survive.

Mostly thank you for never walking away from us, for never feeling it's time we move on with our lives and "get over it". Grief of a child does not end at the funeral or months later...thank you for always acknowledging that and for always being by our side even when it was painful for you as well. Thank you for never being afraid to help us with our pain - even if you didn't know what to say, just being there is what has always mattered to us.

Thank you all for giving us the opportunity to lead our lives in honoring Brittany and in a way that she would be proud of us and of all of you.

Peter, I really reflected on your words to me last night and you are very right how amazing it is that Brittany's love keeps bringing us all together and how much she brought to each and everyone of us. Thank you---you always know just what to say.

I know that Baylee, Cameron and Giavanna as they grow will also be very proud of everything you all have done for them and our family and especially that you helped their parents survive for them.

I will never forget any of you and what you continue to do for us. My love to you...and sincere thank you for the rest of my life.

Love,
Star

Not an hour in the day goes by that I do not think of Brittany. It still hurts so much. Whether I see a beautiful young girl with long flowing hair like hers, experience/share a heart felt laugh with family and friends, see a butterfly, see a star twinkle or simply am securing the seat belt in preparation to drive...she's there in my thoughts.

My heart just aches for her family and friends who carry this tremendous loss in their hearts and lives...day after day. I wish that somehow, some day we can all make sense and/or find some type of solace in this horrible tragedy. Until then, we will try to cope without her and make sure that she is remembered as the wonderful, vibrant little lady who made us all smile, laugh and love in a way that we never imagined possible.

To the most beautiful angel in heaven, you are so very missed and loved...and none of us will ever be the same again. RIP butterfly...RIP....

:( We all miss you so very much. :(

Brittany,


Hi baby girl,

It's been a while since I've shed some tears. So I guess it's only appropriate that I shed them now. I was planning on going to the tree decorating tonight, but unfortunately my car is smelling a little funny when I drive, so I'm too paranoid to drive it until we take it to the shop and figure out what's wrong. I'm not in the mood to take a chance and flip a coin, and get the wrong side of the coin. I really wanted to go. I haven't seen your mom in awhile and it would be really nice to see her. I'll have to email her and say hello.

I've been so stressed out lately. I gave two speeches last week for two different classes. One of my speeches was for my senior project. It was 30 minutes long. It went over all major events in my life, and how they have shaped me and molded me to become the person I am today. I had a 7 page written paper, a powerpoint presentation, and my 30 minute speech. I had 2 powerpoint slides dedicated to you. I love you Brittany, and I miss you so much. I saw Pedram yesterday and hung out with him and some other people. We had a really good time, but I wish you were there.

My mom's chemo is kinda rough on her. It's been really hard for me to see her weak. Luckily this round of chemo isn't as bad as some of the other ones. But with this one she lost her hair again. It's always hard for me to see that because it reminds me of how sick she is. Brittany please send me some strength over here. Everything is so hard. I break down and cry sometimes because I get so overwhelmed. I'm trying so hard in school now. I'm really focusing and getting good grades. I also have an internship set up for me with the AFL-CIO Labor Council down in San Diego over the summer. I guess I've been trying to keep myself busy...but keeping myself busy is also the culprit that leads me to being overwhelmed.

I keep a picture of you in my wallet. I miss you so incredibly much. I really need a hug right about now...really bad. I miss you Brittany, and I wish so much and hope that you can hear all of our thoughts and our prayers. I keep our memories close, I carry them everywhere I go. I share your story with anyone that asks...and I hope people learn to be safer. I choose to drive safe instead of reckless...I choose to make smarter decisions. I choose to pick my battles with my parents and avoid stupid arguments. None of that is worth it. There are so many wonderful things in life that we take for granted. I refuse to sit here and watch my life waste away.

I love you Brittany...thank you for being here for all of us...even when you aren't here.

Send you're mom a hello..

xoxo
Tanya

I just recently I heard about your loss of a wonderful young woman, and I just wanted to tell you to be strong, hold on.

I too, had to deal with a situation like this but I'm sure my situation was not as unbearable as losing your baby girl, but i got through it knowing my family member was watching over me, and i'm sure brittany is watching over you too.

STAY STRONG GOD BLESS YOU.

I'm sorry this happened to you Brittany, and I hope your having a great time in heaven! I miss you and we all miss you! I know your watching over all of us, and I thank you for that! Please stop kids and adults from making dumb decisions by helping with the S.T.A.R.R. program!

Hi,

My daughter is competing against one of your teams today (MGM Grand nationals) and I was just sitting here passing time looking at your team's website. Wow! What a eye-opener about what is really important. When we get back to Colorado I am going to show our girls this site. I am also going to ask the team(s) to look at it and hopefully encourage other parents to show their kids. What a beautiful young lady. She was just like so many of our kids. My daughter likes the same things she did. When we compete, I will be thinking of you and wishing you and your team(s) all the best. I am so sorry for your and your community's loss. I could never imagine, and hopefully through this, I nor many other parents won't have to live it. I am sure it will open some of these invincible kid's eyes. This website is awesome and obviously she is loved so very much.

Brittany,

My Dearest Baby Girl,

Though I have not written for some time, I think of you constantly! I miss you so much and still fight with the fact that this is real. I hear your voice as you tell me "Hi Daddy! I love you Dad! I Miss you dad!" I hear these words all the time in your voice. They always did and will always mean everything to me.

Brittany, I wish I could have done something that night you were taken from US??? I never got to say goodbye. I am so glad though that at least we did speak on the phone earlier that night, even if just for a minute. You always knew you were loved so very much! I told you several times a day and every time we would speak. It always ended with I love you!

Cameron talks about you all the time and never takes off your bracelets. He has 3 now and he wears them always. Whenever we pray he always prays for you to come back! As he grows older he will better understand that this can't happen. I tell him you are always with him. I can tell you this for sure. He will always remember having the BEST big sister in the world. He will never forget.

The Holidays are really tough! It seems that it was just yesterday that you were at the house opening your Christmas presents. I have many of your memories all over the house. Your ornaments are hanging on the tree and I even have the picture from your first Christmas. You are dressed in your Santa clothes.

Well Baby Girl, I must go for now but you are always in my heart, my thoughts, and my every breath. I speak of you often & always will. As I have said before, YOU ARE MY HERO FOREVER!!!

I LOVE YOU & I MISS YOU!!! CAN'T WAIT TO KISS YOU!!! AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN!!!

LOVE,
DADDY

P.S. SAY HELLO TO JESUS FOR US

I did not know Brittany, but I saw this page through a friend's myspace account and think this a great website for her.

She was obviously loved by so many people and a very special young girl. I am writing because when I was 22 both my parents were killed in a accident and so I know what it feels like to lose the most important people in your life so quickly and unexpectedly. I am now 24.

I must say to Brittany's mom and dad, only the strongest people are faced with losses like ours. God throws us these hardships to see how strong we really are. The holidays are here and I know how hard this year is going to be for your family, and I hope you know there are people out here thinking of you and your family. I will be praying for your family and mine this Christmas.



"To Those I Love"

If I should ever leave you whom I love,
To go along the Silent Way, grieve not,
Nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk
Of me as if I were beside you, for
Who knows but that I shall be often times?
I'd come, I'd come, could I but find away
But would not tears and grief be barriers
And when you hear a song I used to sing,
Or see a bird I loved- let not the thought
Of me be sad, for I am loving you
Just as I always have....You were so good
To Me....So many things I wanted to say to you...
Remember that I did not fear....It was
Just leaving you I could not bear to face
We cannot see beyond...But this I know
I loved you so--t'was Heaven here with you.

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM HEAVEN


I still hear the songs
I still see the lights
I still feel your love
on cold wintery nights

I still share your hopes
and all of your cares
I'll even remind you
to please say your prayers

I just want to tell you
you still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders
above all the crowd

Keep trying each moment
to stay in His grace
I came here before you
to help set your place

You don't have to be
perfect all the time
He forgives you the slip
If you continue the climb

To my family and friends
please be thankful today
I'm still close beside you
In a new special way

I love you all dearly
now don't shed a tear
Cause I'm spending my
Christmas with Jesus this year

*John Win. Mooney Jr.*


To all of Brittany's family & friends I am wishing you Peace on Earth!

In Loving Memory of my beautiful daughter Brittany Star Curcio....I miss you so much...



When the wind blows I can feel you within my grasp
Like your waiting for me to grab you, but you leave again so fast

I see the sun, I see your smile, and for a moment it brightens up my day

I feel you always in my heart, that will never go away

Through your eyes I saw the world in a completely different light

I saw such innocence and joy; you made my days so bright

When I go home and I see your pictures covering up my walls

All your pictures speak to me; I feel your presence in them all.

I will be with you soon, but I don't know when or how
Your spirit lives within me I feel, that's all that I have for now

God wants me here to do something, for what I do not know

But when I finish this task he wants, I will see your heavenly glow

I hope youíre having fun up there, hanging with your family and friends


I pray that you'll watch over us, and keep us all feeling strong

Itís hard to live life down here, knowing forever your life is gone
I pray for strength each and every day, and forgiveness for all my sins

Hoping someday we'll be together, so we can love and laugh like it was back then.



My love to you always and forever my sweet butterfly.

WE MISS U BRITT!



JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL
CARRIE UNDERWOOD

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy with the baby in the backseat
Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline
It been a long hard year
She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
She was going way to fast
Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn't even have time to cry
She was sooo scared
She threw her hands up in the air

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this all on my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat sleeping like a rock
And for the first time in a long time
She bowed her head to pray
She said I'm sorry for the way
I've been living my life
I know I've got to change
So from now on tonight

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this all my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I'm on

Oh, Jesus take the wheel
Oh, I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
From this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel
Oh, take it, take it from me
Oh, why, oh

Last year 4 days before Christmas I lost a good friend in a car accident that also seriously injured 3 other friends. As the one year anniversary of her death gets nearer, the more it seems to hurt that she isn't here anymore. She was more than just a friend; she was a sister, daughter, teammate, and so much more. She never got to go to her prom or walk the stage at her graduation. She didn't get to see her cheerleading squad win the conference title. She was such a beautiful person inside and out and it all makes me wonder what she did to deserve what happened to her. Why her? Why did this have to happen to her family and friends?

I am sure these are the same questions Brittany's family and friends are raising this time of year. It is no longer "Happy" Thanksgiving, "Merry" Christmas, or "Happy" New Year. Brittany's loved ones can no longer have a joyous holiday season.

Although I never knew Brittany and live on the other side of the country, her story has touched me and I visit this site frequently. The love that so many people show for her is truly a beautiful thing. When a loved one is absent from one's holiday season, it's difficult and nothing anyone can say will make it all better. Brittany and Anna (my friend) are no longer here with us on Earth anymore, but we all know they are cheering for all of us in Heaven! They will always and forever live on in our hearts and that is a place they can never, ever leave.

This holiday season remember those that Brittany left behind. She would want everyone to enjoy themselves because that is what this time of year is about: being with the ones you love. Instead of dwelling on their absences, we need to celebrate the wonderful lives they had. Treasure every memory you shared together during Christmas and the New Year while Brittany was still with us.

Life will never be the same without Brittany and Anna, but we all need to realize that we are all her to commemorate and pass on these two beautiful girls' legacies.

May you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Brittany's family and friends will all be in my thoughts this holiday season.

We little knew that morning that God
Was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone;
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
Your love is still our guide;
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same;
But as God calls us, one by one,
Our chain will link again.

Precious Family,


i came across this website by accident, but for some reason i keep coming back to it. it has truly touched me. im so sorry for your loss. i lost a very close friend in a car accident just a little over a year ago. Brittany reminds me so much of her. i just wanted to let you know that you are in my prayers, and always trust god.

It is so great to see STAAR getting off the ground and really getting itself out in the community! It is a beautiful way to continue Brittany's legacy and to prevent others from making similar choices.

I send my thoughts to Brittany's family and friends often. May she rest in peace.

"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..."
