R.I.P. Brittany (Sissy)

I will love you and miss you forever. You were the best sister ever. It’s so hard knowing I’m here alone with out you but someday we will meet again.

The following is cut & pasted from the post I wrote about Brittany’s passing. LINK

The morning of Aug 30th started like any other day. The kids had a no school day due to the Labor Day weekend. We slept until about 9 AM and spent most of the day enjoying each others company while hubby was at work. Sometime during the day I developed a nasty headache because of my allergies. I made BLT’s for dinner and shortly there after I crawled into bed to read the book of Leviticus in my read the bible in 90 days reading plan. I had every intention of going to bed early. Little did I know that my life was about to be turned upside down.

At 8:10 PM the phone rang with a phone number that I did not recognize but I knew that it was from my home town. I answered the phone and my Mom was on the other end bawling and demanding to speak to my husband. I remember asking her “what the hell is going on“? Still she demanded to speak to him and not me. I walked into the garage and told my husband “my Mother is on the phone bawling and demanding to talk to you… and I think somebody is dead“. I knew without being told that my precious baby sister was dead. She was so young and so beautiful. Only 24 years old.

Britt’s last post on Facebook was at about 6:56 PM and the accident was at about 7:00 PM which in my mind works out about perfect with the distance that she traveled. She must have posted and walked out the door. She did not own a cell phone to post with.

Brittany drifted off the side right side of the road and then over corrected and rolled. She was ejected from the vehicle and died instantly. The fact that she didn’t suffer is the only thing that gives me peace.
