Brittany: I never got the chance to get to know you, but i have met your family, they are incredible.

I know what it is like losing someone you deeply love, it's the hardest thing life could ever throw at you. But you're in a beautiful place now where you can look down, and protect your amazing little sisters.

I wish we had the chance to meet, I'm sure you're an incredible person, and we would have gotten along great!

Best wishes to the family.

<3 Jessica.

p.s. will you tell my daddy i said hi, and i love him : )

I just wanted to stop in and offer my deepest sympathies to Brittany's family and friends.

10 years ago I lost the woman who meant more to me than anything in my life. She was my best friend, my confidante and my lover. we were in high school at the time and already knew we were meant to be together forever.

We were so excited that night because we were going to our first REAL high school party. It was Halloween and my parents had finally let me drive us around alone. We got to the party and had a great time. There was alcohol available and we both thought we knew how much we could drink and still be safe to drive home. We didn't know how wrong we were.

We left with some new friends and decided to race each other to get home. I lost control on the wet and icy roads. The car flew off the road and rolled, bouncing off of three trees along the way. The next thing I knew I was upside down and Stephanie was pinned in her seat. I had worn my seatbelt but she hadn't. I struggled to get out of my seat and to get to her. She was crying and blood was everywhere. I was able to get out of the car and get her out but our friends were long gone.

The road was empty and I didn't know if anyone was coming to help us.

I held Stephanie in my arms telling her everything was going to be ok. We cried and as I held her I knew true love for the first time. I asked God to help us. To help her hold on until someone came to help us. I kissed her once and when I looked up again she was gone. That's when I heard the sirens and saw the lights. I held her tight and cried so hard.

A part of me died that night with her.

The fireman who arrived to help us had to pull her from my arms, He was a friend to both our families and knew how much she meant to me.

When my Dad arrived, he didn't yell at me or scold me, HE just hugged me and held me like I had held her. I know if he could have taken her place right then, he would have.

The pain and the loss you feel when Brittany's life was cut short is something I'd never wish on my worst enemy. To this day the pain has not gone away.

All we can do is celebrate their lives and move forward like they would want us to. Who knows, when our time finally comes we may find that God has taken them under his wing and has held them until we come to be with them again.

Maybe Brittany and Stephanie have met in God's great kingdom and when we go to meet them they can bless our lives again.

Until then, I wish you the best of times. Brittany left behind a sister who will never know the joy of having a big sister to learn from. Stephanie left behind a young boy who still holds the greatest love for her in his heart. They can not be replaced and we should never try to. Instead we must continue to honor their memory.

What you have done here is an amazing act of love. My wish is that it continues forever allowing this amazing young girl to touch even more lives with her smile and energy even though we may never have met her.

My Sweet Baby Girl,

Today is Graduation Day... I still remember your first day of Kindergarten! I can see you right now with those cute pig tails and your lil dress, holding your lunch box. I cried all the way to work that day! You were so excited for school and loved it!

 I was always determined to make sure you stayed successful in school and you did. So smart and such a good student. I always knew you were going to graduate high school and go off to a great college.

I can remember us talking so many times during your school years how 2007 was going to be your year...wow that always seemed so far away. Its here now, the day we waited so long for...the day I have looked forward to since you were born... the day I would hold you in my arms and tell you how proud I'm of you...what I would do to just have that ONE moment right now… It’s just so sad my baby girl that is just all gone.

 I'm not doing so well with any of this. This is just one of those moments when that pain hurts so deep in my heart and soul. It just all seems so unfair and still to this day that aching question of why??

I so just want to hold you and hear your voice again, it just kills me. You will ALWAYS be in my heart and your memory will never leave me. I hold you so close to me.

I will never be okay with any of this. For the rest of my life this pain will always be with me until I once again see your beautiful face.

Although, I can not see you walk across that stage today as I always dreamed I would. I want you to know that I’m very proud of you. You gave me more then I dreamed of in a daughter. I will never forget that. The love and bond we shared I will hold onto the rest of my life.

You inspire me and the person you are is why I survive. What a blessing you have been to my life…my dear child… Thank you.

Love to you always and forever, Mommy
