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!!

Angels called your name so gently, That only you could hear.

No one heard the footsteps, Of angels drawing near.

Softly from the shadows There came a gentle call,

You closed your eyes and went to sleep, And quietly left us all...

Oh dear one. As I have watched my new little Grandie grow my heart has ached for you in your loss. It had been 28 years since I had 'had' a baby. Watching Liv, every movement, smile, laugh....I have cried so many tears thinking of your loss. Please know you are always in my heart and my prayers. I love you, friend. <3

Got an email today from a special person that lives in Walker. It is her 15 year old sons birthday today. I wanted to share how Bria has touched this young mans heart. I am going to copy her email on here because the way she says it is just beautiful:
 Hello beautiful - just wanted to share a quick story about my teenager who I honestly believe doesnt listen or care about anything. I call him this morning to sing & harass him and ask what he was doing today- he said his usual, so i asked what usual was. He said remember that baby that died on my birthday- i always catch a butterfly, give it a kiss & set it free to fly to heaven. He melted my heart. Always say a prayer for you- take care today!!
This email is what got me through my day today. I thought about it the entire day. I will carry this with me for the rest of my life. What a beautiful heart this young man has....

When I first met you

Shared by Katie Benjamin on November 29, 2011

We All miss you Bria

Hidden in the clouds,

Above the wavy sea,

There is a place called Heaven,

And its calling out to me

I really hate to leave you,

All alone and so upset,

But I know you really love me,

And that you wont forget.

My time with you's been short,

But I don't want you to be sad,

celebrate the memories,

And all the good times we had.

Butterflies surround me,

Coloured pink with streaks of gold,

And all the other kids here,

Say that we'll never get old.

So when you're feeling down,

And you miss me more than ever,

Remember that I'm happy,

And that I'll be with you forever.

-Maya Hayden Evans
