My niece Tori led me to your daughters site. I would like to send my deepest condolences. Even though, I do not know Brittany or her family. This is a terrible tragedy. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful girl.
This site is beautiful, and I would like to share another site with you. It is
There you can build a website along with music, pics, tributes, and candle lighting. I have made one for my father that passed from cancer at the age of 59. Please stop by and visit his site.

The site you have made for your Angel is touching. It is amazing to see soo much good come from tragic  events .Although it saddens me to know that others are suffering  such deep pain.

My daughter Mary-Beth Chaulk died on March 12,2006 from injuries received the day before when hit by a car while crossing in a marked crosswalk. She joined her baby brother Keith in Heaven ,who died 14 years ago September 1st.

It is sad to see young lives with such hope and promise for the future taken from us. I am sure they are sharing Cheerleading secrets and maybe Mary-Beth will share some hockey as well.

Love Lives Forever

"Death is nothing at all- I have only slipped away into the next room. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be spoken without effort. Life means all that I ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near just around the corner. All is well. Nothing is past; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it ever was before- only better, infinitely happier and for ever- we will all be one together with Christ."

Hi Baby,

I haven't wrote on here in so long.  Its just been to hard to do things I use to do.  Funny how everyone said "time will heal" but really I don't think anyone that said that ever lost a child.  Time does not heal it only hurts more each passing day.  I actually feel more pain now then before, its that deep stabbing pain that never ends.  

Yesterday was the first day of school and I cried all day and still have been.  It hurt so bad to not be able to share the excitement of your senior year with you.  We talked about this day so much and its just unfair you are not able to follow your dreams.  Its just not right Britt and I'm so sorry!!  We talked about how funny it will be that when you are a senior Gia will be starting Kindergarten.  You didn't even get to see her!!

I think about you every second and wish I could somehow communicate with you.  Its so hard just not talking with you.  I know that everyone tells me you are with me but I don't know why its just so hard for me to feel it.  I don't know if I just look to hard or I'm just so desperate to feel so much more I just look beyond what might be right there with me all the time.  I don't know, maybe the pain just doesn't allow me to feel you???  I want so badly to believe you are with me even if it will never be the same way you were before.  I would take anything right now, just to have some connection.  

I was looking at a website that one of your friends sent to me and I found something that just made me cry so hard because its so what I'm searching for with you and I'm going to try to read it everyday so I can try to feel you closer with me.

   It goes like this:

A shadow of joy flickered; it is me.
I told you I wouldn't leave.
My memories, my thoughts are imbedded deep in your heart.
I still love you.
Do not for one moment think that you have been abandoned.
I am in the Light.
In the corner, in the hall, the car, the yard ~
these are the places I stay with you.
My spirit rises every time you pray for me,
but my energy comes closer to you.
Love does not diminish; it grows stronger.
I am the feather that finds you in the yard,
the dimmed light that grows brighter in your mind,
I place our memories for you to see.
We lived in our special way,
a way that now has its focus changed.
I still crave your understanding
and long for the many words of prayer
and good fortune for my soul.
I am in the Light.
As you struggle to adjust without me,
I watch silently.
Sometimes I summon up all the strength of my new world
to make you notice me.
Impressed by your grief,
I try to impress my love deeper into your consciousness.
As you should, I call out to the Heavens for help.
You should know that the fountain of youth does exist.
My soul is now healthy.
Your love sends me new found energy.
I am adjusting to this new world.
I am with you and I am in the Light.
Please don't feel bad that you can't see me.
I am with you wherever you go.
I protect you,
just as you protected me so many times.
Talk to me and somehow I will find a way to answer you.
Mother, Father, son or daughter, it makes no difference.
Brother, sister, lover, husband or wife, it makes no difference.
Whatever our connection ~ friend or even foe ~ I see you with my new eyes.
I am learning to help wherever you are, wherever I am needed.
This can be done because I am in the Light.
When you feel despair, reach out to me. I will come.
My love for you truly does transcend from Heaven to Earth.
Finish your life with the enthusiasm and zest that you had
when we were together in the physical sense.
You owe this to me, but more importantly,
you owe it to yourself.
Life continues for both of us.
I am with you because I love you
and I am in the Light.
-- Author Unknown

I know that my life will never be the same without you.  I keep trying Brittany, because I know that is what you would want me to do but some days it just gets so hard to go on.  My heart truly just breaks for you everyday.  That will never change for the rest of my life.

Your fingerprints are on my heart.
Fingerprints that teach me about caring.
Fingerprints that teach me about love.
Fingerprints that teach me about courage.
Fingerprints that teach me about hope.
Fingerprints that bring me closer to my loved ones.
Fingerprints that bring me closer to myself.
In the time I cared for you my whole life changed --
never to be the same again
All this from tiny fingerprints that touch my heart.
You will live in my heart forever - never to be forgotten.
I will always love you.
You are my child.

Sweet Dreams my beautiful butterfly until we meet again...

Love you always and Forever

I never knew Brittany, but she was very beautiful. I can tell she had very many good friends and that she was a great person. I'm very sorry for your loss, but I too know what it's like to lose a close friend. I was very close to Mary Beth chaulk who passed away on march 12th 2006 and my best friend Ryan passed away in early august. everybody stay strong and keep your chin up, my condolences go out to everyone. xoxo,

Brittany was a fantastic cheerleader and a wonderful girl!
I wish that she was still with us today!
And everyday, I think about her and think and hope that she is still here with us, and this is all just a dream!
So I love you and I miss you so much Brittany!

All of this is so familiar. I saw the link that Brittany's mom posted in my friend Mary Beth's guestbook and I had to come check it out. They were so alike: MB and Brittany, and I know that they're friends up there.

The bracelets, and the positive way people are mourning the loss of their friend are all things that we are doing in NS as well. The pain of losing Mary Beth is still so raw, and it still hurts so much to think about, but it is truly a comfort to know that other people know this kind of pain, and that they're also making it into something positive. Mary Beth Chaulk and Brittany Curcio's deaths were not in vain, and we'll remember them forever.

Rest In Peace.

"embrace her life, she shared many great times with you all.
May you rest In peace Brittany , your GOD'S Child

Wow,  its unbelievable how many young people die when it shouldn't happen. I too am a cheerleader, in Dartmouth Nova Scotia Canada, for the Cheer Extreme Rage, a  senior team.

I was also a cheerleader for Eric Graves Jr High, and Cheer Extreme Fury, a junior team. for my jr high school and jr club team, I cheered with one of my very close friends, Mary Beth Chaulk. This past March she was struck by a car and killed while crossing the street in a marked crosswalk.

Also several days before Mary-Beth's death, a girl named Kerri-Lea a jr high cheerleader for the Eastern Passage Phoenix, was raped and murdered by a family friend. both of these girls were coached by the same person, and one of my teammates, Chris Cunningham.

 I know how much your missing your friend, and teammate, because im going through the same thing. I know your all cheering together up there, and watching over all of your team mates and friends, and family.

RIP Brittany, Mary-Beth, and Keri-Lea

Oh and here's Marybeth's memorial site.

I visit this website from time to time to see "my" beautiful little cheerleader", Brittany (I have it saved as a favorite).  It also reminds me to reflect on how precious life is, especially with daughters.  Mine are 18 and almost 15 now and there is a lot of discord around the house from time to time.  When I look back and remember Brittany's story, and the beautiful angel she was on earth, it makes me stop (and always cry) and re-assess my values.  I hope parents and children alike benefit from this tragic lesson.

Hugs and kisses,
"Coach" Suzanne

Hey Girly Girl,

   Couldn't sleep am thinking about what a very long day it was yesterday and such a small world meeting new people that know what happened to you, it seems that you are every where and it is so good to know that you will never be "forgotten."... I just want you to know no matter where I am at or who I am with, even in my sleep your presence is so... it is so hard to even put into words I sometimes feel that when I turn around I expect to see you there....

Hey Girly Girl,

            I had a dream about you the other night and woke up thinking so much about you I spoke to a friend of mine that I ran into the other day about you and he has a 16 year old daughter and I gave him a STAAR flyer and he could not even look at it he was going to show it to his kids and hopefully they will show it to they're friends and so on it is so important for your story to get heard so that through what happened to you it wont happen to anyone else and hopefully parent's will put car keys out of view so I made you a cake for your birthday and we sang you "Happy Birthday" we so wished you were here Ashley turned 18 and hopefully she will make good choices in her future Primo cries every time he hears "one more day" and his bracelets are white they are so worn out and he never takes them off. Well girly girl I will see you again some day.... 

Love Lynn

While I did not know Brittany, I knew a lot of her friends. My Daughter was in cheer with the RPPW for a while and has since moved on to high school water polo and softball.

It was weird, but today I am working on remodeling the house and I was playing some loud music from my computer and in my media library was a dedication video that I was asked to put together during a cheer event in San Diego last year. This was my first time to meet Brittany, however it was more of a remembrance of Brittany. Anyhow I decided I would take a peak at your website again and I noticed the link to her dedication was not working. So I wanted to make sure this was corrected. RPPW/streams/2005CoxArenaBrittanysDedication768K.wmv

While I know nothing can bring Brittany, I think its important to keep her memory alive. As a single dad of a young 15 year old daughter, I need to be reminded occasionally as to how precious life is. So if you could please fix the link on your Archived web page to the link above that would be great.


Note from Webmaster:

Thank you Ed we will look into correcting the link we really appreciate your thoughts and your wonderful dedication to Brittany.

Hey there!

We do not know each other but I happened to see the memorial page on My Space and that's how I got linked here. I could not leave without writing something in the guestbook.
I love the page, it had me crying, seriously. Reading the letters you wrote for her was so touching.Itīs crazy how you don't have to necessarily know somebody in person and still be so touched by what's happened to them. I feel really sorry for all you guys but she is in good hands,GODīs hands.

Keep your heads up and one day you will get to see each other again, definitely!
