  4. Dear Toni,
    I am at a loss of words. I have known Bryana since she was just a little girl. What an absolute joy she was..always with a big smile on her face! She would knock on my classroom door every day at her recess and lunch and ask if she could help me with my students with special needs! They absolutely adored her! It made me so proud to see her over the years, growing up and impacting others in a positive way. I saw her most recently at MV, working as a paraeducator, and she was holding the kids hands in her class, walking to an assembly. They looked up to her so much! She truly enjoyed her time with the students with special needs. She forever impacted many children and adults. Bryana, you will be dearly missed….

    I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

  7. Dear Toni and Leonard, You don’t know me, but I had the pleasure of working with Bryana at Glankler Pre-school for the last 2 summers. She and I got along very well even though I was much, much older than she was. I’m so sorry for the loss of this beautiful, young, passionate, go getter! The kids loved her very much. The world will never be the same without her!

  8. I am so sorry for your loss. I was Bryana’s English teacher when she was a freshman. I remember her well, and her kind personality and thoughtfulness. She talked about her sister often, and I know she loved her family. What a loss to our community and the world of a such a beautiful person. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. Dear Toni,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. There are no words that can comfort a mom in this situation. I hope you will find strength in your God, and in the support of your family and friends. We all have to move on no matter how painful some of the difficult time could be. I myself learned time will heal. It really does, although it’s going to take a while. We will get through the difficult time from the strength we find in our every day life and in the small things or people surrounding us. Please take very good care of yourself. Bryana wants to see from Heaven that you are in good health and live a good life.

  12. I never had the privilege of meeting Bryana, but after reading her obituary, I can tell that I missed quite an opportunity to meet an awesome individual! It is sad to hear of anyone’s passing, but when the passing is of a young vibrant person due to human error it makes the passing even harder. My prayers are for the family, friends and all who knew her.
