Teresa, Brant & My Special Nephew Maddox,
 
We know your memorial for our special niece Briella was today and we are very sorry we could not be there but please know she will always be in our thoughts and our hearts. Briella you are our special angel. All of our Love, Uncle Tommy & Aunt Carol xo
Teresa, Brant & Maddox, You are always in our thoughts and prayers. Love Always, Uncle Tommy & Aunt Carol xoxoxo

We continue to hold you in our thoughts and prayers for healing and peace. I know it's hard and some days are better than others, but Briella will always be with you in all the beautiful moments of your life, and all the beautiful creations of our GOD.

I didn't tell you this before but we lost our niece Madison 4 years ago in March at her delivery. My step-sister Cindy was pretty much devastated and feeling alot of the same things you feel now. Wondering why and feeling alot of emotions that she didn't know how to handle. She named her baby Madison Hope Guillen and we kept reminding Cindy to hold on to the HOPE and FAITH that she once had before Maddy passed. After all she had given Madison the middle name of HOPE, and we must always HOPE in the LORD and maintain our FAITH in HIM even when we don't understand or see where HE is leading us.

Just a few weeks ago we found out that Cindy is expecting again. This doesn't mean that we will ever forget our precious little angel "Madison", but it does mean that GOD is GOOD and FAITHFUL, and HE knows our pain and answers our prayers. We have all been praying for healing and peace to come to Cindy and her husband Ray. We have also prayed that GOD would grant them another child, and for this we are grateful and joyful in the LORD for this answer to prayer.

I don't share this to cause you any pain, but to hopefully comfort you, and remind you that you will see Briella again someday. Life will go on and you will have good days and bad days, but always remain strong in your HOPE and FAITH in the LORD and HE will give you inner peace and He will heal you with time.

May God Bless and Keep you all!

Hi Teresa:

I think you and Brant have been remarkable. 

You are such a strong woman and I admire your strength to find a way to keep going - even when you don't feel like it  You will have good and bad days; but just as you told Maddox that it is ok to cry - you need to allow the same for you. There is no relationship like that of a parent and child, you proved your love for Brie was unconditional.  Brie will forever hold that special place in your heart and you will always be able to go there to keep her close - as she was your precious gift and will never be forgotten. 

God has blessed you with your sweet Maddox.  He is such a little character - I love to watch his facial expressions. He cracks me up when he is on the ball field.  He and Camden are such great buds.  It touches my heart to see just how much they enjoy being with each other.  I hope they will remain lifetime friends.

I pray that God will continue to give you and Brant strength and that with each passing day the pain of your loss will ease and you will find comfort and peace. 

Love Ya, Charlotte Mingee

Teresa, Brant, & My Sweet Maddox,
I think of all of you everyday. Briella did not leave my thoughts on Sat, Nov. 7th. She is my special sweet niece and she will never leave my heart. My thoughts and prayers were with you Sat. but then they are always with you and my heart. You are all very special to me.  Love Always, Uncle Tommy & Aunt Carol xoxoxoxo

Teresa and Brant:

You continue to be in my daily prayers....
 
Rainbows appear after mighty storms
When things look their worst;
Just when the skies are darkest gray,
Out of heaven does the rainbow burst.

 God first sent the rainbow to Noah
As a sign that His word is true;
The rainbow's eternal message
Still speaks to me and you.


 The rainbow is a sign of God's promise
That He will guide us through any storm;
That He will ease all our troubles
No matter what their form.


 When you feel battered by life's storms
And you are filled with doubt and dismay,
Just remember God's rainbow is coming
For it's blessing ... you only have to pray.
Rest and grow stronger ...
Let go and let God share your load.

Love you today and always,

Charlotte Mingee

Theresa,

I was thinking about your family and then got this e-mail update! What a strong woman you are! Your thoughts are beautiful and how true when you think of her beautiful face you smile. You are so right you gave her the very best medical care available so be proud of that. I think it is awesome that you kept Maddox in the know since day 1 and it sounds like he is processing her being heaven better for it!
Your brave to go back to work, but I understand to get back into routine is important and to be with your "girls" will be helpful I am sure!
I will be sending thoughts of strength to you as you go back to work and sending postive thoughts that your heart begins to get lighter day by day!
We all at What I Want Salon send our love!

Briella Lucia family,

I was very touched by your story, I am currently a nursing student and have just completed my pediatric rotation and we have just learned about cardiac defects and the continous surgeries that are required in the months and years that follow.  My heart continues to go out to you and your family, you will be in my prayers.  I pray that the surgeries that follow for your little angel will go well and that Briella will continue to fight.  I know God is watching over you and your family.

Theresa and Family,
My heart broke for you when Ange shared the news about Briella.  I know there are no words that can make a difference.  Your hearts have been broken and time and the belief that she is now at peace are the only things that will make a difference.  Please know I am praying that you find strength individually and as a family to deal with your heartbreak.
With Love and Prayers,

Dear Bailey Family,

We are SO sorry to hear of Briella's passing. When I saw the email notification in my email I started to cry before I even opened the link because I had a feeling I already knew what it would say. We dont know what to say and thats just the honest truth. Jesus will be your soul source of comfort that is unconditional. I pray that you will get through this together and it brings you closer to each other and the Lord but I am sorry that you had to go through this.

Teresa & Family:

While there are no words to help ease the pain from the loss of your precious baby daughter, Briella, take comfort in knowing that you are close in every thought and prayer. 

In the darkness of sorrow, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of an angel's wing.  Look upwards to the sky and see the beautiful glow of the stars; see the stars as openings in heaven where the love of Briella pours through and shines down upon you to let you know that she is at peace and happy. May you find comfort in knowing your precious angel is watching over you.

I hope you in time you find peace in knowing that you both did all that love could do and modern medicine could do.  She is now at rest in God's loving arms.

May the love of those around you and God's love help sustain you through the days ahead.

There are no words we can say to tell you how sorry we are.
I am so glad Briella was in our life. I am so glad I got to hold her hand and touch her feet. They are special moments in our life we will never forget. To tell her we loved her and that I was her favorite aunt that is a special moment in my life I will never forget.  She will always be my special angel. Thank you for sharing everything with us and always making us apart of all of your lives. You have always been very special to me and I really wish I could say or do something but I know that there are no right words so I will tell you that you are loved very much and our thoughts and prayers are always with all of you and my heart. Love Always, Uncle Tommy & Aunt Carol xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
