I can't write a moving statement about you, Brittany. I can barely write at all. You pretty much speak for yourself. Look at how many people love you! Why? Why did you get in that car? I miss you. Here's some hugs and kisses that I never got to give you.

After the cheer season ended, we never talked again. But you always gave me a smile even if you were walking and talking with someone special, you would take the time to look me in the eyes and give me the sweetest smile. It has been oh-so-hard to keep going every day knowing you won't be at school.

You're everywhere, baby. Everywhere.

People are so impacted by this.  I'm so sad that you're gone. I'm so angry at myself that I never took the time to say just how much I love you after cheer ended. But we can't live in the past. We can't live in our regrets of what didn't happen, what wasn't said or done. Move up and onward, babe. I know you are. I guess it's just finally time for me to realize that I need to also. And then actually do it.

Thank you for being a part of my life. I will remember you in everything young and beautifully radiant, because that's how you were. All my love to Brittany's family and all her friends who actually told her how special she was to them. She will never know how much I cared for her. How big she impacted my life. It has always been this way. I'm not just saying all this stuff and making it up or pretending to be her friend because of this loss. I really did love her. Beautiful girl, inside and out.

To her family: you are in my prayers. God can help you through this. He's ready. Are you? Just let go, and let God. I know I said many things that are bound to rise controversy, but it is all true. It's my feelings. Thank you to whoever set up this web-site. Posting a comment about how I feel has really helped. Stay strong everyone. **XOXO**

i didn't know Brittany. In fact, i didn't really grasp the significance of this heart-wrenching tragedy until i read the comments of the people who loved her. Brittany you have touched so many people with your life and death. i only wish i knew you... you and your family are in my prayers.

Dear sweet girl,

I will never forget the first and last time I ever met you. I took you for a ride in my sisters new jeep, you were sitting in the back laughing and talking about driving and cheer and how much fun you had the night before. I never dreamt that would be the last time I would see you or speak with you. Although it was a fleeting moment, and one that you may not even remember, I will never forget it. I will never forget your radiance and your happiness on that day.

To your mother; I am so sorry, have faith that you will be reunited again someday. Hold your little ones tight and keep the flame of Brittany alive, as I know you will.

With Love and Blessings,

Hey guyz,

i know its been tough 4 all u who knew her better than i did. I met brittany when she was a freshman and i was a sophomore. we met in geometry class. she was one of the two people i talked to practically all year. she was a nice girl and a good friend. i remember her telling me when she went to disney world for cheer, and she was soo excited and she loved it there. i knew her this year too, in my algebra 3 class. we were not as good friends as we were back then, but we were still friendz. I always loved having her in my class and when i heard the news i did not believe it. i dont read the newspaper so i didn't know. it finally hit me when i saw the memorial on her locker. i started tearing up and felt soo bad.

brittany will definitely be missed.

i luv u britt!

Hi i never new brittany but i have always seen pictures of her when you sent them to us on the holidays. she is a very pretty girl and i just wish i could have met her and shared some of the memories that your friends and family shared with you.

i used to write letters back and forth to brittany when i was younger because we are the same age and good friends of my family. this has truly made me think about things that i should and shouldn't do and how to always try and be safe..

i am really sorry about your loss i am praying for you and if you ever need anything ever email me at

brittany, i'm not sure if you remember me or not, but my name is samantha swenke and i cheered on the 2002 raptors with you,

i am in shock that something so tragic can happen to such a beautiful girl. this week i pulled out a box of pictures from nationals, and you were in alot of them, it made me regret not getting to know you better because you were such a fun and outgoing person.

but i am thankful that i was given the opportunity to meet you and have you as a friend during that cheer season. you have really taught me to live everyday to its fullest and appreciate life, for you'll never know when something so sudden can take it away.

my thoughts and prayers go out to your family, and i cannot imagine how hard of a time it must be...

Hey brittany. This is katy LOL, Casey mackay's friend that you would talk to sometimes.

I don't really know what to say other than you are one of the greatest people I have ever met, and I will remember you always. The nights we would spend debating if we were going to go swimming or not lol because we were "SOOO BORED".

Or the times that you would laugh at me because im "random". I miss you so much and im sorry that this happened to you. But you are in a much better place. Watch over all of your friends and family, point them in the right direction. Help them to know that you will always be there for them.

When someone dies they always watch over you. And when you are sleeping is the best time to talk to them. They talk back to you in your dreams. They visit you, they hug & Kiss you. When you want to get close to her again for one last hug... think about her while you drift away to sleep at night.. And tell her you want to see her. She will come to you.

I love you Brittany..

Love always,

To Brittany"s family and friends,

I, like so many in San Diego, read about your loss. What an absolutely beautiful girl, I am so sorry, and my heart melts for you at this time. I have 2 sons, and cannot think of anything worse in this world, than having to lose a child. Please keep the hope and faith that she is now in a better place, even though that takes none of your pain away. May you one day find peace to go on.

I am so thankful that i got to know you and spend time with you during cheer. I will think about you everyday for the rest of my life and i hope that one day we will meet again. I hope that you are happy in heaven and that you are resting peacefully.

I love and miss you so much! Rest in peace beautiful,

I find myself moved to tears over this tragic situation. I did not know Brittany at all but somehow I feel very touched by the pain her absence brings. I have two step-children that have cheered for CA since 1999; that is how I found out about this web site.

I feel especially saddened that those angelic sisters of hers are forced to deal with so many heart-wrenching questions and the upheaval of the family unit they loved until just after 2:00a.m. on April 24th.

I can tell that Brittany loved those girls with every fiber in her being the way my step children love the 2 children their father and I have together. Seeing the pictures of the middle girl who is now the oldest girl pains my heart. Knowing that the youngest girl will never play Earthly games with Brittany moves me to tears.

I stole my parents car too many times to count when I was her age. I even had my own set of keys made for it that i kept hidden when I also snuck out of the house to drive. She paid the ultimate price for a typical teenage stunt that so many of us have also done.

I think of how much her mother; whom I also never met; loves her. I feel sad that her mother has to clean up the terribly loose ends that the crash caused when it ripped the very fabric of her life, heart, soul, future, and womb.

God Bless this family and close circle of friends.

I just wanted to tell you how much your beautiful daughter will be missed. She was such a sweet, loving girl. I don't think that there was ever a day at school that I didn't see a smile on that pretty face of hers.

She always found a way to make me and others around her to laugh. We were in Math class together, constantly cracking each other up. She was so much fun to be around with because she was such an uplifting person. She was the kind of person that I always looked forward to see each day, because I knew that she would be the one to cheer me up when I was down.

Brittany was a star to most everyone around her. I will truly forever miss her.

Love always,

I found myself praying and knowing that she would let us know that she is all right and in all the pictures I have seen she looked so happy and her SMILE made me think wow!

everyone keeps telling me that she was an amazing person and it made me want to get to know her even more. Every tear every sniffle and every thought I KNOW SHE IS LOOKING DOWN ON ALL OF US. SHE IS FINE.

But to all my peers take this chance to learn from this accident. One day I will see her and get to know her.

Dear Curcio & Mumma Family:

We're so sorry for your deep, deep hurt and loss. Brittany was a beautiful girl inside and out--she had a light within her that shone so bright. She was also very kind to EVERYONE, especially the quiet or challenged kids. This is what made people love her. Please, kids, take this "life lesson" from Brittany and remember to be kind to each other NOW. Love one another and go outside your "circle" to be nice to everybody, just like Brittany would have done.

Beauty fades, but kindness and love do not. Spread the love around and be careful. You have people who love you.

Brittany is a beautiful girl. I didn't know her personally, but she was in a few of my sister's classes at RB high. My prayers are with the entire family as you find the strength to get through this time. From the very little I know, I can tell she touched everyone's lives and they were lucky to be a part of her life. Remember, now you have a beautiful guardian angel watching over each and every one of you.
