“We do not have control over many things in life and death but we do have control over the meaning we give it.”
This memorial website was created to remember Brianna Mariah Lopez who was born on February 14th, 2002 and flew to heaven on July 19th, 2002. You will live forever in our hearts.
A whole future,
So many dreams
The Little Ship
I stood watching as the little ship sailed out to sea. The setting sun tinted her white sails with a golden light, and as she disappeared from sight a voice at my side whispered, “She is gone”.
But the sea was a narrow one. On the farther shore a little band of friends had gathered to watch and wait in happy expectation. Suddenly they caught sight of the tiny sail and, at the very moment when my companion had whispered, “She is gone” a glad shout went up in joyous welcome,
“Here she comes!”
While Brianna's life on this earth may only been 5 months, her life and death has left an everlasting legacy that continues to strengthen every year.
Countless of people around the world has heard or read of Brianna's story, and through their diligent work and commitment, Brianna's death has not been in vain. The only thing that eases the pain of knowing what she went through, is the realisation that through her story, so much good has come out of it. So many people have come together in grief and have found a new sense of purpose.
Thank you, Brianna.
For your life. For your fight. For you.

Heard the piece on a recent episode of The Sword & The Scale podcast. A part of me died when I heard this story.
There are some realities, some truths, that cannot be fathomed. What good does all our collective heartbreak do?
And if she would have lived? Would her life have been the same endless, crass, evil pain being inflicted on her? Would she have been another Victoria Martens, her agony extended over years, rather than months?
What do you do with a monstrous truth like the life and death of Baby Brianna? I don't think all of the good in the world can rectify this horror.
Baby Brianna: Maybe in your 5 months of life, in a time when thoughts and understanding were just beginning to form, maybe while you slept, or in one of the few moments of peace and happiness you experienced, the tears and heartbreak and love that thousands around the world have for you now somehow traveled back in time and you felt it, somehow, in your tiny body. We were helpless to save you then and our sadness for you means little now.
I will try to love my own daughters that much more on your behalf, sweet little child.
May we all be forgiven.
Stop child-baby abuse!

Ever since, I heard about your story like a year ago, I’ve heard and read so many stories of little angels like you that have been raped, murdered, hurt, killed by some diabolic person, sometimes it was the mother, the father, the auncle, sometimes like u, it was the 3 of them, and it’s so hard to believe that anyone cannot do anything.
Sometimes I wonder how a person can be so cruel, to hurt a child, sometimes I ask God why He allow this to happen to these little babies, and obviously I don’t get any answer. I just pray God to send angels to take care of little babies, I pray God for not send babies to earth if they are not going to be loved, I pray God to send baby to couples that really want to love and take care of a baby. Why these little angels are made to suffer? What can I do to save at least one baby? What can any of us, who write these condolences, can do to stop child abuse?
What can we do? What can I do? The only thing I guess and I want to do is to adopt a baby, I have a 18 month baby girl, I had a miscarriage of my second baby (and that really hurts) I want a second baby and I want to adopt a third baby.
I guess at least that, is going to be my contribution to stop child abuse.
What are you doing?

What a precious little one that was taken so soon. The unspeakable acts of torture that this baby had to endure is deplorable. I am appalled that the family members who knew this was going on, only got 30 days in jail. They were just as much to blame for her death. The entire family should have gotten life without possibility of parole. Death is too good for any of these monsters! Precious baby Brianna, I have a little grandaughter that is 6 years old, and I dream of what life would have been like for you in a loving, nurturing home. I guess the only good to make of this nightmare was that because of the neglect from other family members, that the suffering came to an end. If only you had been saved precious little one. My heart aches for every little mark left on your tiny little body. Your story has touched so many people and hopefully is a message to all communities to watch over the small and innocent so that they never suffer like you did

Sweet angel Brianna,
I do not wish to condole your death but condole the death of humanity. Oh sweet, girl--I just learned about you this past weekend, and can not stop thinking about you. I have cried and cried, and consoling myself that God is looking after you. A read somewhere that you spent some time at the hospital being a preemie, and if its true I hope that you received some love there. My baby was born a preemie too. My heart is just a million pieces for you. Wish your cruel family knew the blessing they had! How angelic your face was! And what a smart and beautiful woman you would have grown up to be... I'm sorry sweetie that you had to endure so much pain. I'm so very apologetic for this cruel world dear baby. In your short life you have touched so many lives, that none of us living folks could claim. You have made such a difference and brought about a major change in the law. I wish you the purest love from God and I wish that if there is rebirth, you found the most loving family. Rest in piece, precious baby. I hope all those satanic people who sin against innocent babies and children are tried by God. They can surely not escape that!
I just wan to tell you that it's been 14 years since you die and I just read your story. I have not been able to take you of my mind. I got mad at God because I don't understand how he can allow this to happen. I do believe in God but what happened to you has confused me in some ways. I wish I can have a magic lamp and go and save you 14 years ago from those monters. I can't stop crying for you. I"m so so sorry for your pain and suffering you went through. I never considered myself as having a hero but YOU MY LITTLE ANGEL ARE MY #1 HERO. I know you are with God now and his angels. I send you the BIGGEST HUGNS AND KISSES to YOU. I'm so sorry my darling for everything.
