We both know the heartache of wanting a child to complete your life and being unable to acheive that for so long. I share that

with you, I cannot imagine the raw pain it must create to lose that dream. I am so thankful she was found and returned

so you are not left wondering. Kirsten sends her love and prayers, she remembers how "sparkly" Brittney was at those family

reunions. I will see you at the service.

Love always;

LeAnn, Lowell & Kirsten

Ron, Kelly and family, Andy and I were so sad to hear about Brittney. We can't even imagine the pain of your loss! I remember how thrilled you were when Brittney arrived! I always enjoyed seeing Brittney's pictures as she grew up on my grandparents fridge. Just know that words fail at a time like this. You are loved and we are praying for you today.

A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. But...there is no word for a parent who loses a child, that's how awful the loss is! - Neugeboren 1976, 154

May you all feel the healing that comes from comfort and love and fresh hope!
