Dear Mrs. White:

Brittany spurs me on to connect, musically, with as many students as possible. Her smile, love for music, and Christian example resonate with me, still. Please know that I am here whenever you need me.

Still speechless, however, knowing where my favorite, (and yes my only) niece now resides, is the beauty of life coming to an end on earth.

Thank you Brittany. I have two grandchildren who have started attending Garinger. They are safer than they were before your crosswalk was put in place. Angels are placed on earth for a mission; your mission was complete. Thank you!

Ms. Palmer - I saw you on WBTV today commemorating your daughter's death with installation of a crosswalk . I read Brittany's obituary and realized she was your only child. I too have an only child and can only imagine the pain you have endured. The segment of you on TV showed a lady at peace with obvious joy in her heart. My prayer is God will continue to bless and keep you in his peace and joy. My deepest sympathy and prayers. Doris Person

Katrina and Mrs. Palmer,
I learned of Brittany's death weeks after she had passed. I was truly stunned. Please know that Brittany is with the Lord. You both taught her well and you both will see her again.
Draw strength from one another and from you Savior Jesus the Christ.

To The Palmer Family:
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to each of you in the loss of your precious gift from GOD. Much Love comes your way from The Wilson Family. Remember Paul's writing in the 15 chapter of 1 Corinthians 15th chapter v.54-58 that says; When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (NIV)
