I know you are going to be truly missed by your family and myself, I still can’t believe you have gone. You touched so many people with your kindness and your humour. The world is going to be a different place now you have gone. I know for one I am going to miss our video calls that were both deep and meaningful and full of laughter and humour. We weren’t sisters by blood but we were by choice and even though the distance has grown further the choice remains the same. Love and miss you, rest in peace sis

Brittney will be missed at our office but I am sure not as much as you will miss her, Dennis. She always had a smile and something positive to say. We could all see how she loved you. We are sorry for your loss. She is a good person and was a great match for you.
