I am sorry for the loss of your loving mother. Life can be very unfair at times and can hand us what seem like insurmountable circumstances. Although I have not seen your smiling face since you were in my third grade class at Falls Valley, I want you to know my thoughts and prayers are with you. My condolences extend to your brother and sister as well. Stay strong sweet boy!!

Brittney saved me. I don’t say that lightly. I was going through a rough time and without even asking questions she helped me. We were inseparable after that until I moved from Idaho. We did the camping, floating the river and bbq’s. She was an amazing cook. I love her kids, her mom and brother and sister in law like they were my own as well. They took me in as well. She was like my sister and I love you dearly. Fly high beautiful. I can still hear your laugh and see that beautiful smile. I love you.

Brittany was a great person to work with during my time as a caregiver at The Gables of Ammon. She truly cared for the residents and was always going the extra mile during her shifts. I remember thinking how amazing this woman was to be working and going to school at the same time. Plus, being a full time single parent. She always talked about her kids. We had our own talks about what one another was going thru in our personal lives. She was a shoulder for me to cry on, someone to vent to and trust. I will miss her Snapchat messages. Her beautiful selfies and funny filters she would use. She was and will always be one of my dear friends. I will miss her. I love you Brittany. My condolences to your children and your family. May God bless you all and comfort you during this time. ❤
