  • To the family of Bri,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Bri was friends with my daughter and spent time at my home. She was such a beautiful girl with a great personality. She will definitely be missed.

  • Bri, I will never forget the first day I met you. You moved in the house across the street from me and from then we just clicked. We went on so many adventures together, went to so many places, had so much fun. The pool parties you had, the haunted houses you set up in your basement, the play fights we had with Connor and Jacque in your living room. The lemonade stand we set up for you so we could buy you your first webkinz. You were such an amazing person, so full of life and so loved wherever you went and by everyone. You shined with love and light and I will never forget everything you’ve ever done for my soul and how you’ve been a hand in who I am today. I am going to miss you so much but I know I’ll see you again someday. I love you so much. Rest easy beautiful.
    Miss Colleen and Mr Will
    I am so sorry for your loss, I can’t imagine how you both are feeling and if you and your family need absolutely anything please reach out to her group of friends. We are all here for you in any capacity you guys need. With all love
