Remembering Brooklyn / Marci Shipley (Friend)
I lay Brooklyn's school photo's before me and I spray on Brooklyn's favorite perfume "Charlie." I cry and I smile as I remember this blessed child. I miss seeing her beautiful smile and her mischievous eyes. I always wondered what little prank she might decide to pull. I couldn't help but love her. An angel in waiting and now she is living in paradise flying high and love continues to surround her. I love you and miss you Brook. Close

Brookie would walk in the classroom she always had a big smile, Brook liked to write all her classmates name, Brookie would talk alot about Dora the Explore, On Wednesday before the accident Brook wore angel wings to school I said Brook you look just like a angel she smiled. I would lay besided Brook at rest time we would talk a little that was a special time, We would talk she would fall asleep. Brook would get up and eat snack and start drawing or play with puzzles. Then mom would come Brook and Jennnifier would be so happy to see their mom. I was so glad to spend extra time with the girls and Roxanna on Thuursday night we talk and laugh I remember the last words I said to Brook I love you see you tommorrow but tommorrow never came Brook my sweet little Brook was gone. Brook will always have a special place in my heart. Brook I really miss you alot. Roxanna, Jennifier and Vivian I love you guys so much if theres anything I can do just let me know. My prayers are with you. love you guys always Barb one of Brooks and Jennifier preschool teachersClose

STRANGERS BY NAME, MOTHERS BY HEARTS / KIM STREITMATTER (PASSERBY) YOUR STORY TOUCHED MY HEART IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE. I RAN ACROSS BROOKLYN'S SITE BY MERE ACCIDENT, BUT ACTUALLY IT WAS MORE OF A BLESSING I THINK. LATELY I HAVE BEEN VERY CARELESS IN NOT BUCKLING MY 4 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER IN HER CARSEAR WHEN GOING ONLY A FEW BLOCKS IN TOWN. LIKE AN IDIOT, I FIGURE IT'S JUST A COUPLE OF BLOCKS, WHAT COULD HAPPEN. I HAVE NOW READ BROOKLYN'S STORY AND AM CRYING SO HARD THAT I CAN HARDLY TYPE. I CAN'T BELIEVE I WAS SO CARELESS. I FEEL LIKE I OWE YOU AN APOLOGY. THANK YOU FOR OPENING A CARELESS MOTHER'S EYES AND FOR PROTECTING AN INNOCENT CHILD(MINE). I WILL NEVER BE SO CARELESS AND STUPID AND LAZY AS TO NOT BUCKLE HER UP AGAIN AND THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME SEE THAT EVEN THOUGH IT'S ONLY A COUPLE OF BLOCKS....THOSE COUPLE OF BLOCKS CAN KILL..
Brooklyn was always such a happy child. She always had a smile on her face, no one could take that away from her. Even when she was in trouble she had that smile that would make you melt. I will miss Brooklyn with all my heart.

My Valentine by Martina McBride / Marilyn Barnes
Your precious Brooklyn is a beautiful child. I don't think there is any greater pain than that of losing a child. My heart aches for you, and my prayers are that somehow, with the help of God, you can find strength to face each day. I think this song says a lot about the love a parent has for her/his child. Your baby will always be your valentine. May God bless you.
If there were no words No way to speak I would still hear you If there were no tears No way to feel inside I’d still feel for you
And even if the sun refused to shine Even if romance ran out of rhyme You would still have my heart until the end of time You’re all I need, my love, my valentine
All of my life I have been waiting for All you give to me You’ve opened my eyes And showed me how to love unselfishly
I’ve dreamed of this a thousand times before But in my dreams I couldn’t love you more I will give you my heart Until the end of time... You’re all I need, my love, my valentine
And even if the sun refused to shine Even if romance ran out of rhyme You would still have my heart until the end of time ’cause all I need is you, my valentine You’re all I need, my love, my valentine

Sweet Brooklyn / Elaine Hess (Angel Mom )
What a beautiful girl! Awesome Angel!! I know this is the hardest thing that you will ever endure in your life. The pain and anguish in losing a child is the most painful thing we will feel. I hope and pray that you are not living with the guilt of not having the car seats in the car. I truley believe our baby angels books are written before they are even concieved, and even though this is so painful, they are angels given to us for a reason. God only has those answers, and we will be reunited to hug and kiss them again! You are an awesome mom and Brooklyn knows that as well. Take care and I pray for peace and comfort to you and your entire family. All of us angel moms are walking this walk together, we are all here for you!
To Brooklyn's Mommy / Melisah Havens-Castro
I'm writing this message with tears rolling down my cheeks. My heart aches not only for your family and your incredible loss but with guilt. I came across Brooklyn's site by what I thought was pure chance but now I know it was God's will. I had lent my 4 year old's grandmother his carseat for his weekend visit. She usually has her own but is a realtor she sometimes drives her clients to prospective homes so she takes it out. This was one of those times so of course we lent her ours. She returned it last night (Sunday) and he decided he wanted to watch a movie in it so he did. This morning he wanted to go to the park so we got ready and headed out. We got to the car and I realized we didn't have the carseat. He's never been without one for a day in his life but for some reason I thought to myself " It's just this once. He'll be fine. The park is only a few blocks away." And it seemed a relief of sorts with him being able to buckle himself in and unbuckle himself when we got there. I thought to myself "Maybe he's big enough for this now." But after reading your story I realize now how lucky I am and my heart wrenches at the thought of our two children in the same situation with my trip being uneventful but you losing your beautiful little girl. I know it probably isn't much comfort given your tremendous loss but please know that because of your story.] I will NEVER do what I did again. Your willingness to share your tragedy may have saved my little boys. And I'm sure that parents across the world who happen upon little Brookly's site will carry her and her message with them in their hearts just as I will. Close

No words can help ease the pain / Judy Grandma To Angel Kinsley (visitor)
But maybe you can find some comfort in knowing someone else is praying for you and thinking about you.Our Kinsley went to heaven on 07/01/05 at 11 & 1/2 she was special to us as your Brooklyn is to you and Brooklyn is a beatiful little girl. Their lifes are just so short it seems like someone so wonderful should have a long life on Gods earth but the God of all creation knows why and we are to trust and have faith till we see them again. God Bless all of Brooklyns Family because I know it is hard on everyone.

I am praying for you... / Darla Parks
I know you have no idea who I am but, I just was going in my daughters web an seen your precious little girls' picture. I am so vary sorry about your little Brooklyn. I know it is hard I had to say good bye to my daughter Elizabeth Miller we called her Buffy. She was only 19 an such a precious child she always had been. Buffy was serving in the US Army and was in head on collision on the way to her unit. I though I would die when the officer told me but, I just had to pray. I didnt believe it was her so I told them I had to see her so I went to the hospital an on the way I prayed that God would let me know if she was safe with him and you know what he put a Rainbow in a perfectly clear sky and it hadnt been raining for weeks. I know this seems simple to some but, it meant alot to me. I had a booklet with poems that help me I want to share this one with you...Special people come our way as angels from above;They hold such innocence and joy.Like children filled with love. Just remember God never makes mistakes and he has a special way of helping. Dont blame yourself for what happen we are only human. I blamed myself for my daughters wreck because I bought the car she was driving but, the Lord opened my eyes and my heart and let me know there was nothing I could do. And the same goes for you. I will be praying for you and your family. Dont give up on God because he really does care and he will take special care of you little treasure and she would want you to be happy and not sad. Maby my Buffy might be looking after your little brooklyn. May God Bless you and guide you.....A friend in Christ......Darla Close

When I must leave you / Jennifer Kesselberg
When I must leave you for a little while Please do not grieve and shed wild tears and hug your sorrows to you through the years. But start out bravely, With a gallant smile And for my sake And in my name Live on and do all things the same. Feed not your loneliness on empty days But fill each waking hour in useful ways. Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near, and never,never be afraid to die For I am waiting for you in the sky! "Helen Steiner Rice" Close
Deepest Condolences / Mary Lou Friedman (None)
Roxanne My heart goes out to you at this time, I know that it doesn't seem right that a parent out lives a child, but God has his reasons even if we don't understand. You were a great mother to Brookie and she will always be looking over you. I know that you feel you will never recover from this, but God doesn't give us more than we can handle and time is a great healer. Mary Lou Close
