Family & Me

With so much love in this family, we had to add another page.  Here are photos of uncles, aunts, cousins and other family members who shared this life journey with Brittany.

Dear Britt,

I still can't believe this has happened. I keep coming here and looking at all your BEAUTIFUL pictures. I wish so bad that I still had the photos that were lost in the fire because never more than now do I wish I could go through and remember each and every one and all the joy and happiness you brought to me and my whole family through the years.

You have always been so beautiful and photogenic, but your photos caught truly more than just your outward beauty, they caught the beauty you carry inside your soul as well, and I break down in tears every time I look. I can't tell you how much of an honor it was for me to be your Aunt and Godmother, and to watch you grow into such a beautifully caring and compassionate loving person. 

I go to sleep at night and sometimes lay there for hours just thinking about you and how unreal it all still feels to me that this could happen. I cry when I remember being in the room when you were born, and how happy I was ( to the point I couldn't stop giggling ) to finally see you for the first time. You were a blessing at that time and always have been to everyone who knew you. 

I know you're with Grandma now and all the people you loved who have passed on. Not only because of my faith, but because I went to the cemetery the morning after the accident and had a talk with my mom ( Grandma ). I was crying and upset, but when I looked at her picture and saw her eyes sparkling, I knew at that moment that you were with her in heaven and that she was so happy to see you ( and you to see her ). I asked my mom to take care of you and then thought to myself " that was silly " because I know she already is..... 

You're on my mind all the time Brittany. I remember on the way home from the site that morning asking the Priest " How could this have happened ? Why did God take you away from us already?"  And he simply responded " I don't know ". I guess none of us ever will know until we see you again, but I know one thing for sure, and that is that he must have a very special purpose for you in heaven to have taken you away from all of us who love you and miss you so much here.

Brittany, I can't tell you how very thankful I am that at Christmas I got the chance to tell you how much I love you ( and hug you right back when you snuck up to me in the kitchen and gave me a big bear hug and smile ). That memory will live with me forever and comfort me. 

I love you Britt and you will always, always live in my heart !!!!!!!  I miss you and love you so much !!!!  Sleep with the Angels honey.....  

I love you,  Aunt Natalie
