To Briana loving family:
I'm so sorry to read of Briana's death and extend my sincere condolence to your family. To lose someone we love so dear can leave a crushing pain deep in our heart that no can fill. Take comfort in knowing that our Creator promises to remove all sickness, death and pain as recorded in the bible at Revelation chap 21 verses 4-5. A promise he will bring about when his Kingdom rules this earth as it now rules heaven. So as you reflect on you memories of Briania, remember the promises of the God who can't lie. I hope this being you some comfort.
