Brittany, I will always remember how innocent and pure you were when you walked into my life. We went through a lot together and our lives took a different path. The last time I seen you, all you could talk about is how much you missed me. Jamie will be forever devastated. I know who your true love has always been!!! I am praying for Destinee, Bailee, and the rest of your family that you left behind. Your passing has left a whole in my heart. I can't wait to steal the flowers off your grave! Only you know what I am talking about:) I wished that I could have traded one day of my life with you...

"Dancing in the Sky" lyrics
What does it look like in heaven
Is it peaceful and free like they say
Does the sun shine bright forever
Have your fears and your pain gone away

'Cause here on earth it feels like everything ... good is missing, since you left
Here on earth everything is different, there is an emptiness

I hope you're dancing in the sky
I hope you're singing with the angels' choir
I hope the angels, know what they have
I bet it's nice up in heaven since you arrived

Tell me, what do you do up in heaven
Are your days filled with love and light
Is there music? Is there art and invention
Tell me are you happy and more alive

'Cause here on earth it feels like everything ... good is missing, since you left
Here on earth everything is different, there is an emptiness

I hope you're dancing in the sky
I hope you're singing with the angels' choir
I hope the angels, know what they have
I bet it's nice up in heaven since you arrived

I know we parted ways long ago but to lose someone you went to school with most of your life is so strange, so unreal! My heart goes out to your 2 precious baby girls. I pray for strength for those who will raise them, to tell them of their mother; how strong she was, how fun and crazy she was, how she loved her girls so. R.I.P. Sweet Brittany

My condolences to the family. And please post this one, I really feel the need to apologize to her for past few months, it was a bit rocky and I feel completely horrible. I didn't get you apologize while she was around so please let me do it now.

Britt I want you too know I am very sorry for all of the crap we were going through and things I said to you, I was upset, we both were. But also before our disagreements we had allot of fun, me, you and of course my crazy boyfriend blue. Ive missed those times just as we will miss you from here on out. We love you Brittany, I hope you can forgive me and it's not too late.

Love ya, Nicole lane and Timothy (BLUE) Berry.

Posted by Brandie Jones    February 23, 2014

I never got the chance to ever tell you how sorry I was for some of the things I said to you. We had our differences, boy did we have our differences. And we ended up enemies. But before all the stupidstuff we had a blast add friends and I am so sorry that we had to end it like we did, I just wish that I could have seen you one more time to tell you that I was sorry. Abd I don't know if you will ever know this now, or if you hear me when I'm telling you how sorry I am for everything betweenthe two of us and I hope that one day when we meet again in heaven you will have already forgiven me and we can move on and continue with our friendship the way it was before the crap.

Yoy always managed a smile no matter how bad things were at the moment. And your goffy laugh would put a smile on anyone's face that was down. You had hugs to spare in times that someone needed one. Always full of love among other things! Our hearts ache at the moment you were ripped from our lives. May you sit at God's feet and watch over your sweet little girls.

God some of the best memories I have about Kaufman were shared with you Brittany. The days of rolling around listening to Bone Thugs and Harmony, Too Short to us fighting on my birthday about five rounds only to try to make it up the next night and laugh about it. Or what about when my brothers cat got a hook stuck in her tongue and you came over and yanked it out like it wasn't nothing. Damn I could go on and on I LOVE YOU AND AM GOING TO MISS YOU GIRL. YOU MEAN A LOT TO ME AND I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE YOUR GONE. YOU ARE UP THERE WITH YOUR DAD WHO EVEN THOUGH HE PASSED AWAY WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE YOU TALKED ABOUT HIM SO MUCH. WE EVEN TOOK A RIDE TO ROSELAWN TO VISIT HIS GRAVE I BELIEVE ON FATHERS DAY OR HIS BIRTHDAY AND STOPPED AND GOT FLOWERS TO PUT ON IT. YOU WERE SO HAPPY IT HAD BEEN SO LONG SINCE YOU HAD BEEN OUT THERE. THIS IS HARD TO BELIEVE BUT I WILL HOLD ON TO AND CHERISH EVERY MOMENT WE SHARED TOGETHER. FLY HIGH WITH THE ANGELS REST IN PEACE BRITTANY NEVER FORGOTTEN I HOLD YOU CLOSE TO MY HEART

So heartbroken. We were the best of friends when we little...almost sisters. I think every outfit we owned matched and we had pictures made to prove it. Though we grew apart, I think about you often and cherish our friendship! Prayers to you Lisa, Shirley, and the rest of the family. May god wrap his arms around y'all. I know she is in the arms of her daddy now! :)
