“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.
