    I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Brianna in person, but was greatly touched by her strong faith and sweet spirit witnessed on Facebook! Human nature wants to question God’s decision to take this precious child but I know Brianna would lovingly but firmly tell me to not do that! My love and prayers go out to all of Brianna’s family, immediate and extended!

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve known Brianna since she was a little girl. My son Nicky and her were classmates. I’ve never seen her at school or in public that she didn’t say hi. She always was so well mannered and polite. She was a beautiful & sweet young lady. She will be missed by many. Her journey here on earth was hard. She never complained that I know of, she was always smiling even though I know she must have not felt like it. I’ve keep in tough with her through FB durning her journey. her faith was so inspiring and true. She knew her savior and was not afraid to tell the world that God’s Got This. I have prayed for her and her family since day one and will continue to pray for peace and comfort for you all.

  • Sherry O’Neill-Rawls Posted May 20, 2016 1:25 AM
