Brittany Star Curcio was a loving daughter, sister, and a beautiful friend.

She was a typical teenager doing the usual things that girls do at age 15...

shopping, talking on the phone and sleepovers.


But one ordinary night with friends and one wrong decision quickly turned to tragedy

for Brittany and her family when she was killed after she lost control of a car

she did not know how to drive. It is in her memory that this website was created.

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 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


Oh, Little Butterfly, Messenger of God,

When I see you in the sky I cannot help but nod.

You bring me respite from grief and despair

Every time I see you sailing through the air.

You renew my faith in all God's wondrous plan,

And I know it's all in FAITH, and NOT in what I understand.
