It's All About Love

It's been a very difficult week. I have so much on my mind that I want to put into words...the time will come. Here's the video Jerry and I put together for Bri's memorial service. Big thanks to Tom Mills for his help. Couldn't have done it without him.


  1. AMAZING!!! I am speechless. I will continue to pray for you all as you travel this most difficult journey. Hold tight to your memories as they will bring you comfort.


  2. My Prays and thoughts are with you. I am so sorry to hear about your amazing little girl. It is wonderful to read and see how much she touched so many lives and I know that with your thoughts of helping others this will continue and she will continue to touch more hearts.

    God Bless,

  3. Brenda, It is beautiful and yes the song fits perfectly. Thank you for placing the picture of our Angels together. If and when anything happens to Annabel I will take comfort in knowing her and Brianna will be together in HEaven. Please take care of Brenda also. I am praying for you and JErry and Ashley. They are such small beings but leave such huge holes. I pray constantly for the ache in your arms. Love you dear friend.

  4. Dearest Brenda, Jerry and Ashley,

    I will never understand why your precious Brianna could only be here for a short time. The video is so beautiful and what I do see is a child that is happy and so full of joy. I see a child that is loved and cherished and who brought happiness and delight to her family. A very beautiful little baby that grew up into a darling little girl.

    I close my eyes and see Brianna in her little tutu and dancing for our Lord. Now He is taking delight in her. Praying that you take some comfort in that vision. Praising God for the time He gave you all here and for the future of you all being together again.

    I continue to pray for His peace that passes all understanding to wrap itself around you as you grieve, yet celebrate, your sweet daughter.

  5. Brenda,
    You don't know me and I don't know you. I was good friends with Kristin's best friend when I lived in Florida!!! I have been following your blog in the last couple of weeks and I have to tell you that you are a REMARKABLE family and I am praying for you and your family!!! I hope that time will heal your hearts and souls. Brianna was a gorgeous baby and she definately touched my soul.

  6. Wow what a beautiful video. It brought tears to my eyes. I am 2 months away from giving birth myself and still don't know if my second baby girl is going to have Trisomy 18. I can't even imagine the pain you must feel right now but I am so glad that you have your faith. Brianna was so beautiful and her story inspires and teaches us all a lesson. Thank you for sharing her story and her pictures. I continue to pray for you all and for little Brianna in heaven. I am sure God is taking good care of her right now. I am so sorry you have to go through this!

  7. What a beautiful video! It is heartbreaking that she was here such a short amount of time, but how blessed that you all had so much more time together than expected. I pray for your family that all of these special memories of your time together will bring joy and comfort as you heal. Your family has touched my heart and I will be thinking of you! It was lovely to see such an enormous amount of love between people...it's what life is all about! Wishing you all only the best...

  9. thank you for sharing this video, Brenda to celebrate her beautiful life.

  10. What a tremendous gift Brianna was. If only all the doctors could see that video and know that every day of her life was so worth the medical care that saved her life.

    That was a video jam-packed with love for a special girl.

    Yesterday I spoke at a press conference at Capitol Hill in Washington DC in defense of the lives of children like Brianna. Watching this video helped me to know that doing this was a very worthwhile endevour.
