Breanna was a very special friend. She was always looking for ways to help others and she taught me how important it was to look beyond the surface and really see people. Almost every day I would get a text or message asking if I needed anything. By the world's standards, she did not have very much but by God's standards she was blessed beyond measure with a heart for the hurting. She cared for animals and people alike and was always ready to help out wherever needed. I will be praying for Bella, Steve and Brenda. I hope that Bella will be able to continue to follow her mom's path, learning more about God and how much Jesus loves her as Bre would have wanted.

Breanna had the best heart. She loved God amd Jesus. She would not tell a lie under any circumstances. She loved her daughter Bella and was teaching her about Jesus, God and heaven. She helped take care of het parents and her grandmother. She was a good friend to me. She will be truly missed. She had been separated from her husband for several years, his choice, but she never quit loving him and never gave up on him. She loved her parents and Bella so much. She tried hard to not be on the vent. I know by the way she lived and talked she is now at peace in heaven with Jesus with a new body.

Breanna was my great niece on her Mom’s side. Because of not living in the same state, I didn’t see Breanna often but would talk to her by phone and texting. I last saw her in December. Breanna was a sweet and caring young woman and was such a good mother to her sweet Bella. This is heartbreaking that she left us so young. Rest In Peace, Breanna! As Bella says, you’re with Jesus now.

I love you,
Aunt Betty
