Bria Louise Dykema
  • Date of birth: Jan 22, 2009
  • Date of passing: Jun 26, 2009
You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine You make me happy when skies are grey You'll never know dear how much I love you Please don't take my sunshine away....

 

I started this website to keep Bria's memory alive.  We only got to enjoy her for 5months and 4 days but she touched so many lives. I will be eventually adding some home videos on here. My purpose of this is for people to share whatever memories they have of her, or just light a candle and make a comment whenever you are thinking of her. Ben and I want help in remembering any detail of her life and hope you all share! Thankyou!!
