I came across this website last summer by accident. I did not know Brittany and I do not know any of her family or friends. I don't even live anywhere near California. Ever since I came across it, though, I check it frequently.

You hear about young people tragically losing their lives in car accidents too often, and it usually doesn't "mean" anything unless it affects you on a personal level. For some reason, Brittany's life and her story have impacted me. I lost a friend in a car accident who was also a sophomore cheerleader with a full, vivacious life ahead of her. I honestly believe that she and Brittany have in some way connected.


I found this website for a reason, and even though I don't know what it is yet, I know that these two girls are together right now watching over all of us. Brittany lived a beautiful life that will never be forgotten. Her story has affected those who were not even blessed enough to know her and I know that her beautiful legacy will always live.

Hi there baby girl,
Lately it seems that every time I turn on the radio they are playing a song that you, me and Geoffrey used to sing and dance to. I can't help but get
misty. I try not to because I want to remember all the goofy times we all shared together. I'm so lonely baby girl without you and your brothers. 
I would give anything to have you back with us. I look at your pictures and I see how beautiful you are. From the first time I saw you I knew you would do
great things. Brittany, we may have lost your body that horrible night when you had the accident but your soul, our memories of you, your thoughtfulness
and kindness to all will FOREVER live on. I really wish I could be in California helping your mom and dad with the STAAR program and all that they
are doing in your name. I want you to know something Brittany, I am so thankful to God for giving me the chance to help raise you and for the
buddies we got to be over the years. 
There was never anything more special than your mom, your dad and I being able to raise you together, we may not have always agreed but we definitely agreed 
on one thing, we always had your best interest at heart. I love you baby girl. I miss you. I don't know when we will meet again but I know we will and when we 
do baby girl, I will once again feel complete.
I love you,

I keep the Rancho Bernardo High School publication of June 2005 with Brittany's memory in my box that I have to go through every month with my bills to pay and things to and I want to remember her always.

I have two daughters that went to RB High and one just graduated, the other in first year of college. Brittany is a beautiful girl and I feel so sad for her parents and family that lost her.

I can not imagine the pain that they live everyday and feel sorry for them for what they have to live with. In wish I could help. I know that there is not a thing that could take the place of what they feel. I pray for you and 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..

Brittany is a beautiful young lady- I know the pain and hurt the family is going through, I know the missing, the loving, the knock at the door, and i give my heart felt sympathy. I know the feeling -how nothing is the same, Brittany is an Angel in Heaven.


I wish i could take your pain, the same as I wish that some one could take ours- My love is sent to your family from ours. I had my 19 year old niece living with me, while my husband is in Iraq. She was attending college studying forensic science - she wanted to be a detective, she loved the show csi.


But abruptly on Oct 8, 2005 Morgan was taken in a car truck wreck that has left our lives shattered. We don't understand why they are taken away so quick.


I would like to share with you - two nights ago i had a vision of my niece as i lay down to sleep- I had ask her for guidance in her new life and new friends above---the closer she came to me the warmer i felt- then upon awakening this morning---it was as if Morgan was directing me to a sight, the letter from heaven that is in Brittany's web site arrived at my home one week after her death - no return address was listed on the letter- and i was sent from dayton ohio - which is where her body had been transported the night she of the wreck.


The only time again i have seen that letter is here with Brittany. I know our Morgan and Brittany are together in GODS Hands- and i know they have directed me to your web site. in memory dot com we set up a site for Morgan Piatt.


Please stay in touch- for they are holding hands flying together -

A friend or a relative passed by a website in memory of my beloved friend Allen and left their name - I checked this website to read a little about Brittany's life - She was gorgeous - and she looked like such a sweet girl - you have so much to be proud of - remember all the good times forget about the bad and just think she's in a better place laughing and having the time of her life - some day you will see her again - and it will be great!

There are no words that could possibly make it better - I know this from losing a great friend - time heals all wounds - live life in memory of her!

I was looking through Brittany's guestbook, and I noticed that someone from Scotland had signed it. This just proves that Brittany is not only shining her light in San Diego, or California, or even just the United States. Her story has touched people worldwide. She is truly spreading her wings and flying high. Brittany's life was too short, but obviously fulfilling.

If her one mistake can prevent others worldwide from doing the same, she has done what God put her on this Earth to do. I know that the loss of a child is devastating and no words or actions can really help fill that loss, but I hope some consolation comes from knowing that Brittany is saving lives from Heaven. Through the STAAR program, I know you will be able to continue Brittany's beautiful legacy and help her fulfill her dreams. My thoughts continue to go out to Brittany's family and friends...

Rest in peace, Brittany <3

Hey baby girl! I went back to California in November and I got to see your memorial and your burial site next to grama Jeri's.

God little one, I miss you so much that some days are hard to breath. I look at your pictures that are at my mom's house and I just hold on to them for as long as I can before mom comes to give me hug. She knows just how very much I miss you.

I talked to your mama when I was in California and I think things are at peace with us. After your death Brittany, all the wrongs didn't seem to matter. Not to me and I know not to your dad, I am pretty sure that your mom feels the same way.

I will give her a call and try to keep in touch in with them. I'm gonna sign off now because I am borrowing this computer but I just had to talk to you. I have really been thinking and missing you alot.

I love you Brittany girl!

We met recently (January 5th) at The Compassionate Friends meeting and exchanged phone numbers. Unfortunately, I can't find your number and wanted to call so we can talk about our Brittanys.


I hope you can call me. Your daughter is beautiful, and i look forward to hearing more about her.

hey britt,

i saw the christmas card that your family made for you, it was beautiful.  it looked as if you were really there.

i can't believe it has almost been a year already.  i have lost about 5 or 6 people in the last 3 or 4 years but i haven't been this upset over it.  your death has effected me alot and i don't know why.

i carry a picture of you with me everywhere, and wear your bracelet non-stop.  i see butterflys every where and on everything - maybe i'm always looking now, but i take it as a sign from you.

i miss you baby girl and so do your fam. & friends.

well i'll write again soon.=)

I did not know Brittany but came across this site on accident. I think what you are doing is wonderful, and hope the staar program helps teens think about consequences. I had a close friend of mine die on April 9th 2005... I was curious how to get those bracelets made. She killed herself and we're starting a group for her for suicide awareness.

To Brittany's family ... especially her mom:

I found your memorial website today and it brings my own heartache so close to the surface. My daughter Jill Sabet and her boyfried, Jonathan were both killed on May 26, 2005 in a terrible crash on their way to Jill's junior prom. They were both thrown from the back seat of an SUV which their very good friend was driving that night.

I am no stranger to the devastation of this kind of loss, but the familiarity doesn't help my pain. I grew up very close to where your daughter died, in Rancho Bernardo. My best girlfriend was killed close by in car crash when I was just 17 myself. Some years later, I lost my first-born son to an awful complication of treatment for leukemia in 1991 when Jill was just four years old. My children are now buried side by side. I never thought I would have to feel this lonely, inconsolable pain again.

Seeing Brittany's site reminds me that I am not alone, and yet as a grieving mother ... as you must know ... it will always and forever feel that way. As your heart is buried deep within your breast, so is the evidence of how broken and crushed it has become. It is a pain that no one can really know or see or touch, one you struggle to protect from the scrutiny of those who cannot understand, and one that will not ever heal in this life.

What strikes me most is how much like my own precious girl your Brittany seems -- her smile, the sparkle in her eyes, the way she was loved, the way she lived her life bringing joy to others. So, also was my daughter, and my little boy, an impish eight year old who, for the better part of his life, battled his disease with courage and dignity, with a sweet smile and a loving spirit for everyone around him, and the heart of a lion to the very last moment of his life.

I am still asking why ... still shattered ... so lost without my sweet girl, my little boy, my irreplaceable friend, Rhonda, who left this world so long ago. Why does it happen that these incredible souls that the world needs so much are taken from us so soon? And everyday it seems, I hear about another.

I cannot fathom the answer. I had to write just to share your heartache in this small way. I will visit Brittany's site again often, and I will think of your family everyday. I know I cannot really give you any comfort, but I truly understand the pain of your immeasurable loss and I'm so sorry that you also have had to bear this heartache.

Please visit Jill's memorial site, if you have the chance, at  We are also trying to garner the strength to do something to try and prevent other teens from dying as a result of unintentional but careless mistakes and to raise awareness to the reality that even one small bad choice can have such devastating consequences. If we can help each other in the name of our beautiful children, I hope we'll find the chance.

In constant hope that we may all find comfort, and understanding someday.

I just got back from visiting Brittany's Tree. I wrote a few page letter to her so anyone that goes to her tree, please feel free to read it. I am hoping it does not get blown away. As I was at her tree, I witnessed as 2 cars were racing down the same street Brittany had been driving down right before she had the accident. I could not believe these 2 cars!! Here I was, praying to Brittany and her family and friends, and 2 cars were driving recklessly. If they only known what the tree symbolized, then maybe they would think twice about driving that fast.

It is a new year, one that we will have to live without Brittany's physical body. It's such a tough time and I don't know how her mother is able to be so strong. I truly admire Star for all that she has done, for the STAAR program, the fundraisers, and the Tree in memory of her daughter.

I made an ornament to hang on Brittany's tree but it accidentally broke on the car ride today. I will make another one to put on her tree. I still have a piece from part of the cement that broke off as a result of the impact of the car from the tragic night. The cement piece is resting on my dashboard. It daily reminds me to think twice about what I am about to do, and to be safe. I also have a picture of Brittany that is on my desk. Each day when I wake up and look at it, it reminds me to be thankful for all that I have and to tell my family and friends I love them because I never know which day will be my last. The most important thing Brittany has taught me is that we are not guaranteed tomorrow and we must live each day to its fullest.

Rest in Peace Sweet Butterfly. Every time I see a butterfly, I am reminded of Brittany as she sores over us in Heaven.
