No matter that this was anticipated, it is a very, very sad event anytime a
child dies so young.My grandnephew died soon after his 8th birthday
with a similar brain cancer he fought gallantly for more than half his life. It
was heart wrenching to see him spend so much of his time in the hospital, being
poked and prodded for the seemingly endless tests and treatments in the
ultimately futile attempt to fight off the cancer.I feel awfully sad
for this family and the millions of others around the world who bear the
sometimes unbearable burden of loving and fighting for children whose lives are
destined to end much too soon. The price of love is too often very great. But,
having someone like Brylee in their lives, however briefly, is immeasurable
compensation.I hope many others will join me in contributing to the
funds set up in support of Brylee's family.As I said to my
grandnephew, goodbye Brylee and sweet dreams forever.
sometimes life is so unfair.wow what a sad story...brings tears to
one's eyes.never will understand why this happens to such innocence.
Despite the fact that it is still hard, well said..."I do know
that she's not suffering anymore," she said, "that she's
running around playing, and she's got her curls back."
Our condolences and best wishes to her family and friends.
From an eternal perspective, our lives here are only a moment. We have been
assured that a child who spends such a short time as Brylee must be a very
special spirit and there is hope that this mother and father will eventually be
blessed with seeing her again and witnessing her progression into adulthood. I
hope they can cherish the precious few moments they were able share and that
they have the strength to endure the heartbreak of momentary separation.
My heart aches for this family. Today we weep with you, but "joy cometh in
the morning." Hope on, because there is much to hope for. The only good
thing about separation, is the incomprehensible, and incomparable joy at
reunion... and as the Sun rises in the morning sky, there will most assuredly be
a rising from the grave. My heart is with you today.
What a special young lady she is to have brought the local and internet
community together with such tender feelings of love and encouragement. What
special parents she has who will love her forever as she will them. God bless
How rough it must be for parents who know that the fight can’t be won to
hang onto a life for which they had hopes and dreams. Every day becomes precious
knowing that soon she will no longer be around. Let’s cherish the time we
have with those we love while they’re here.
My deepest condolences to the family in your great loss. "Sunday will
come." (Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin)
This story has a special meaning to me. Though hard to witness a child, or
anyone, go through this, what a blessing it has been to me to know of my Savior
Jesus Christ who has helped me carry my load and helped me see God's
purposes for my trial(s). There are so many blessings that can come from such
an event as this. It's hard to see right after it's happened, but
they are there: the outpouring of comfort, love, and support from others,
knowing that you have done something so selfless as to care for that sweet child
if even for a brief time, knowing that trials really do make us stronger and
more capable. There are many blessings to see. God bless this sweet family -
you'll make it. :)
Bless this little angel.
I lost two people to brain tumors. The first was an older sister she fought for
eleven years and had a total of 3 brain tumors that swelled to half her brain.
The strange blessing is she wasn't in pain at the end and her children and
family had time to say goodbye. She was too good to die young but she made our
families faith grow stonger and we held a walk-a-thon in Golden Gate park .It
was finally real to us that we lost her The second was a dear friend who was
much younger Chandary was in her late 30's a survivor of Thyroid cancer,her
tumor came on fastbut still we prayed she would find a cure as her tumors were
inoperable. She tried experimental stem cell using her own stem cells after
Chemo and before radiation. She came back home and died from the tumors
spreading quickly after returning home. They were older but the pain remains.
Bless your family in this time of grief.
