Time Sitting here thinking about how time has flew by I so there and hope you are looking down smiling on all the accomplishments going on in my life. Getting married , got a house I bet you thought I would just make your room my baby's room :) I would of done that in a heart beat. Time to grow up and have a life I wake up every morning know and wishing you are by my side every step of the way. When I have my first child I hope the baby is like you in every way my angel. I love you xoxoxox (04/14/14)

(Anon) love u (09/15/14)

Liv Hi Brielle, I cannot believe that I am now about to end my college search and move out of high school.. it is so strange that I have grown old as you..you were my role model the very first time I saw you at 9 years old and I think about you with every action I make. Thank you for being my inspiration. I will always look up to you. Love you (12/19/14)

DADDY DADDY ALWAYS THINKING OF YOU XOXO (12/25/14)

(Anon) It's March :-(. I love you. (02/28/15)

Amanda I sit here thinking it was yesterday when we were laughing , arguing , and enjoying ones company ,but realistically it's so long along. I have no idea why things like this happen and I sit here everyday trying to figure out and still never have an answer. I see so many people get sick and beat their illnesses when you were such an amazing person and tries so hard and couldn't. Why does this happen to the innocent great people. Honestly I will never know and I think everyday that kills me. People say it gets easier over time but in my opinion the memories grow stronger and the heart gets heavier. You get older and you want to be able to share all the you accomplished with the one person that meant the world to you and you can't. You think about the moment when you get married and you want to call your best friend and can't. Or you go through things in life and wish she was their to hold your hand and help you. To me makes no sense when you and all the ones that love you have to go through life living with all this pain and heart ache. Today a Brielle is supposed to be one of the most amazing days of my life and I don't even know how I can tell you. I just hope that you are watching me every step of the way and are smiling I love you so much Brielle and miss you not a day goes by where I don't think of you and wish I could pick up the phone and call you. Thanks for watching over me for the past few years and guiding me life has not been easy since you have been gone. Hopefully now with some changes and hopefully additions mom will be somewhat better and you'll be with us every step of the way like you would be if you were here. I love you baby girl always and forever. XOXOXO❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ (03/01/15)

Dan As webmaster and a family friend, I find it very hard to update the dates on this blog as it makes me read the posts which are often just not easy; as I'm sure they weren't easy to write. They remind me to hug my kids often and for no reason. Love to the Namers!!! (05/25/13)

(Anon) love you and miss you (08/15/13)

Big sis Missing you I can't wait to have my first child and be a girl and name her Brielle that is soon to be the next chapter in my life I love you (08/28/13)

(Anon) for some reason I cant get you out of my head. Its weird because so many people come and go and so much happens in this world, yet you seem to stick around forever. I think it means you are an angel. I think it is so wrong that you are not with your family right now. I dont know why it seems especially cruel when it comes to you. Maybe it is becuase we all love you so much and you have such elegace and grace. everyone in High school thought you were the most special person. For some reason, your absense seems like such a loss for us though you go on influencing us all every single day. rambleing...... love you (09/02/13)

Amanda Big Sis Brielle Namer&#10084;&#65039;Happy Birthday Baby Sister 23 &#127880;&#127880;&#127880; I wonder how birthdays in Heaven are done…I’ve heard there’s no aging and everyone’s young.No wrinkles, no gray hairs, no dentures, or glasses. Just looking eternal as eternity passes. It tantalizes my mind as I think on these things And the picture of you imagination still brings.A beautiful young girl who was just 16. I remember every little detail about you and it will never fade. Your memory burns bright in me and you'll be remembered forever Earthly birthdays can’t matter at all anymore Because time is suspended at Heaven’s front door.Unless God allows memory to pull up this date Maybe we’ll be the only ones to celebrate. But I’ll celebrate you, little sister of mine.I’ll sing as I did when you were just nine Or ten or eleven… on to sixty one…For that’s when your earthly birthdays were done. It hurts to recall.We were laughing and talking and having a ball.Two weeks or later God did take you Home And I’m still in shock that you’re actually gone. Life here without you has lost so much joy.But memory is one thing that death can’t destroy. And I still remember when you came along…I held you and rocked you and sang you a song. I love you, sweet sister hope you have a great day and are watching down smiling. Not a day goes by remember that. I love you you have a Heavenly Birthday. (03/08/14)

DADDY MISSING YOU ON MY BIRTHDAY I KNOW YOU WERE THERE XOXOXOXO (06/30/15)

Sue Hart I have never met this beautiful family personally, but it feels like I've known you for many yrs. Many sister Susan was Amanda and Brielle's babysitter for a number of yrs. I was out jogging yest when my sister called and we were both in tears. I also lost my 14 yr old and my heart goes out to all of you. May God give you His peace and strength to live everyday as your beautiful daughter would have lived. Lots of Love. (06/12/13)

Anonymous Brielle, I cannot believe it has been 5 years now. a day hasn't gone by without me wearing your wrist band. i feel i have a very special connection to you others cannot understand. makes me think about you every day. it seems like just yesterday we were hanging in your backyard making some smores by the fire pit. i feel terrible for not writing in this blog more often.. You have an amazing family and amazing friends and you changed many of our lives in such a positive way. Always had a smile on your face. this is my last night of college and I am having trouble sleeping. Been thinking about you all night. I hope to see you in my dreams when i do fall asleep. I miss you. (06/15/13)

(Anon) I wish you were with me and your family now. (06/17/13)

Big Sis Miss you every day gets harder :( people say should get eaiser but it dosent xoxo (07/08/13)

DAD ITS AMANDAS BIG DAY COMING UP I KNOW YOU WILL BE WITH YOUR FAMILY I LOVE YOU DADDY XOXOXOI (07/11/13)

someone I cannot believe that this happened to this beautiful young girl. I did not know Brielle but just looking at her photo you can tell she was full of life and love. Someone who truly loved every moment. This world is so unfair. Its unbelievable that someone like this could be taken away so soon. I am also grieving a loss and for some reason reading some of these entries helps. Brielle's spirit shines and makes me believe in angels. (08/05/13)

justme I am remembering you today. I remember you with joy and with love.And even if we can't see you I know you'll be there. (07/13/13)

me WHERE THE HELL DID 5 YEARS GO I CAN NOT BELEAVE IT I REALLY MEAN WHERE THE F_ _ _ DID TIME GO I AM SO MAD I LOVE YOU (03/04/13)

Big Sister AMANDA NAMER I close my eyes like it was yesterday that we were sitting home talking about what type of car you wanted to get with dad. I do not know where these 5 years have gone, but I miss you more then you know. Well I bet you know because you are watching down on me every day. Sitting here thinking what to write and I am freezing because I just don’t know what to say. I tell mom that today is a day not to be sad but to remember everything that you were and how amazing you were as a daughter and sister. Thinking back to times when we were little we were inseparable and always there for one another no matter what. I miss that more then you will ever know, but I know you are with me every single step of the way. All your real friends still keep in contact with me and talk about you all the time saying how much they miss you. Mommy and daddy are trying to be strong today, but I know deep down it is killing them. There is so much I want to tell you and it hurts that I cant tell you. Just know baby sister that today I will be trying to remember the good and everything you have done as a sister and friend to others. You will always be the best person I know and my sister. So for you I am going to put on a brave face and smile. Its not goodbye Brielle it’s until we meet again. Keep you angel wings on me :). Not a moment goes by where I just wish that I could hear your voice or touch.I love you baby sister always and forever (03/04/13)

Liv Brielle- I want you to know that you will never be forgotten, every day you inspire me to be better than the person I am and I always, ALWAYS will look up to you. I miss you so much, and I'm thinking of you always. Love you, Liv<3 (03/04/13)

A FRIEND WE ALL LOVE YOU AND THINK OF YOU ALL THE TIME UNTIL WE ARE TOGETHER AGAIN XOXO (08/21/12)

BIG SISTER AMANDA A day dosent go by when I don't wish that you were here to be by my side. You were my other half and someone that I told everything and anything to. Today I am going to try and be strong and smile and think of all the great memories that we had and shared together. The world isn't a fair place and I believe that you are in a better place looking down on all of us smiling. You aren't suffering and you are cuddling with Victor and just being yourself. No matter what happens I will still be upset every day until I am with you again. I will be strong for mom and dad . I love you always and forever xxoxoxoxoox (03/05/13)

Stein I love you and miss you. Wherever i go, your smile is always with me. (03/05/13)

just me just thinking about you ... the sign is still in our garage ... and you're still in our hearts. 5 years how can it be? (03/05/13)

(Anon) I cant beleive that is has been five years. You have been my guide and my mentor more than ever. You are an impossible act to follow and the world is less-good place without you. Your family should be proud to have been the foundation of such an amazing person. You are second to none. I want to be strong for everyone but I cant. Its so painful. I wish I could make it better but the only thing I can do is say that you will never ever be forgotten and that you will forever light my way. You live on forever. (03/05/13)

(Anon) On this March 7th, I dont know what to say. I feel selfish b/c there are so many tragedies yet this one lives on forever. I miss you (03/07/13)

DAD ALWAY THINKING OF YOU XOXOXO (08/21/12)

A friend To the entire family, and especially Amanda, congratulations. A nice feeling of happiness for everyone. (08/21/12)

LIVINGSTONITE Yes, Amanda, congrats!!!!! Love to all of you. (08/21/12)

(Anon) I am still sad. Even after all of this time I can not get past the loss of such a special, sweet, smart, kind, talented friend. I still cant drive by your house at all. I take the long way around. you are so missed. (08/30/12)

(Anon) Your not alone, there is never a second that I don't think of Brielle. I still can't understand how the heck this happened! It will never ever make any sense to me! I LOVE YOU BRIELLE ALWAYS!! (09/04/12)

(Anon) Me too! So much happens, so many people come and go, but somehow this one loss has really gotten into my soul and stays with me always. (09/07/12)

Mariea I was so sad to come across this website. I coached Brielle at Starlight about 8 years ago. We won a championship in basketball that summer. She was such a gifted athlete and had a wonderful spirit. My thoughts and prayer go out to her family. RIP (11/27/11)

oas i miss you so much, brielle. i looked up to you insanely, and i'm not sure if you'll ever remember me, the little nine year old girl who admired every single action you made during her first summer at camp starlight. i realized it has been six years since i saw you last, on the dreary day of august when we left camp. i think about you every day and i pray every day that youre great up there! you may have never known me but you made me the person i am today. thankyou:) (01/26/12)

(Anon) just letting your family know that I am sitting here thinking about you and talking with you. (01/29/12)

anonymous I don't know if you knew me, but I went to Camp Starlight and definitely knew you. This weekend was the reunion for the summer of 2011, and I was talking to a girl younger than me who I've become really close with in the past few years who's going into her Upper Senior summer. When she asked me for advice, I told her to live every moment, and most importantly be herself. Then she told me that she didn't care about captain or Alma Mater leader or any of those things- she told me that all she wanted was to be just like a girl who had been an Upper Senior when she was a Junior, and who she looked up to and admired. She said that the girl had made such a big difference in her life without even knowing it, and that she wanted to be that girl for someone else during her own Upper Senior summer. When I asked who this girl was, her response was "Brielle Namer," and I thought that was something that needed to be shared. You were clearly amazing and an inspiration to everyone, and you should know that you've made a difference in the life of this girl and tons of other Starlight girls like me who looked up to you even though you may not have known it. (01/30/12)

(Anon) I still cry so much and miss you so much. So many things happen yet this event from a few years ago still shakes me up (02/03/12)

ANON I truly cannot believe that it will be 4 years next month. Some days it feels like yesterday, and some days it feels like a million years have gone by. No matter how long - just know that every minute of every day we are together. I love and miss you so much. Always and Forever. You are the best of the best, and the best to have ever entered my life. (02/07/12)

(Anon) I hate March with a passion, I should love it because it's your birthday but I hate it, and wish it would go straight to April. I just can't, won't, refuse to accept that your not here. I can't understand a world that 1 day your here and now your not? I don't know what this is now, this is not life, I don't know what the blank it is. I just want you back, but that's stupid to say because every single person feels the same. So many people LOVE you and it's really easy to understand why. I just sit and read the messages and shake my head because the funny thing is you never knew the impact you had/have on people, you touched so many with your kindness, your bravery, your humor. You touched so many just by being you and you never realized how special and wonderful you are, you never knew. There will never be any words that exist that can ever express how much I love and miss you, I would give anything to have u back, anything. Happy Valentines Day and give Victor a big Birthday Kiss for me. I LOVE YOU! (02/13/12)

Tomorrow is also justin biebers birthday. You never got a chance to witness him or his music, you would have liked him. You liked everything and everyone xxooxoxox ill write more later (02/29/12)

MOM Monday will be a sad day, and Thursday will be also. I just wanted to say I truly value and respect everyone who writes on Brielle;s site as it lets me know even more that she is still loved and not forgotten by her friends. I wish you all the best. Be the best for Brielle, as she would tell you that. I also believe she is with Vic and they are having a good time together. We all know as much as she loved us -he was her favorite. (03/01/12)

(Anon) Mrs. Namer, Theres no chance of forgetting Bri, that's impossible, and love her, also impossible not to do, it's just like breathing, something you do naturally. I'm happy that Bri and Vic are at least together but please know my thoughts and everyone that ever knew Bri feel for u and your family very much, every day but just more so in this month. Theres nothing that we can do or say to make it better, we know that, but just know we are here and you are not a lone. (03/01/12)

Gi There will always be this hole in my heart that no one else can replace. I've never met someone that inspired me as much as you did, and I'm confident that no one I meet in the future will even come close. You were too good for this world. I always used to think to myself, "she's beautiful, she's funny, she's smart, she's amazing at every sport, she's kind and wants to be everyone's friend... she's SO lucky." But no, Bri, we are the lucky ones to have known you, to have our memories with you, and to have had you touch our lives in the short time you were with us. I miss you so much and every time I'm having a hard day and it seems like too much to handle, I think of you and I remember one word: perseverance. I love you. I'll be seeing you <3 Gianna (03/04/12)

(Anon) you are all in my heart today. Its amazing how many people remember Bri and what an impact she had. Namer family, please knw that Bri is still making a huge difference in our lives. (03/05/12)

anon Four years ago today, as i heard the news of Brielle's passing in the hallways of LHS, my heart dropped. Was it for real? Surely such a perfect girl could not have left us this early. As i go through previous memories of encounters w/ Brielle, i realize she didn't have to talk to me, she didn't have to smile and listen, she didn't have to be nice to me. I was not one of her close friends but that didn't matter to her. She was a genuinely nice person. I regret not reaching out to her more when she was sick because I know she would have if i was in her position. There aren't enough words to describe her and how much of an impact she had on EVERYONE. Four years is a long time... It feels like yesterday. RIP Brielle, you will never be forgotten (03/05/12)

(Anon) To the person who wrote the above message, I would just like to say that I agree with you 100%. I mean to say that you can forget about Brielle is simply nuts, but it's like you said when people write something, either a story from the past or just to say hi or miss you or love you, it does help to see that people care. Lets be honest BRIELLE will never ever be forgotten! (08/10/11)

(Anon) Not a day goes by that I dont think of Bri and all of you. She was/is a real force of nature. (03/05/12)

(Anon) Not a day goes by that I dont think of Bri and all of you. She was/is a real force of nature. (03/05/12)

anonymous Hi Bri, I don't even really know what to say. I've been friendly with you since middle school, mostly because we played basketball and softball together all through middle and high school. We weren't very close friends but we were friendly enough that I know if I needed your advice or someone to listen you were there. It's so rare in life to even come into contact with someone as amazing as you, honestly. The way you touched people's lives, even if they met you once or, from these posts, people who have simply seen you around at camp-you have had such a profound effect on people, that is not something that will ever be forgotten or replaced. Today, when I woke up, I saw that it was the sunniest it has been a while with not a cloud in the sky. I knew that was because today, you were the sunshine; you were the reason today was so beautiful. You are all looking down on us everyday and we continue to be inspired by you and the person you were. I remember one of the first things I thought after hearing of your passing, was that God needed an angel. I remember everyone crying in school, and the basketball team went to the guidance office and we simply all just sat there together and cried, mourning you. I know you would say, "Cheer up guys, don't worry about me." But not a day passes that there is not a sign of you somewhere. Ironically, 21 is my lucky number, and I truly feel that in ways that cannot be explained, I have been spiritually connected to you, as if you are an angel always looking down on me. I feel truly blessed to have known you, and I want you to know that your legacy lives on in every life you have touched. We miss you. <3 21 always and forever (03/05/12)

ls hi brielle! I think about you every day and I want you to remember that everyone really loves you, misses you, and smiles at the memories you left behind. You are my role model, and i cannot believe i am going to be an upper senior this summer, just like you. If I can inspire just one little girl like you did for me, it will be my biggest dream come true. Everything I do today is because I looked up to you, and your actions and words and smiles influence every choice I make. Thank you for everything. Rest in peace, I love you so much and your impact on my daily life will continue forever. (03/05/12)

anonymous Brielle, you are an inspiration to all of us. At camp, you were everyone's idol. Someone who was athletic, pretty, caring and smart, you were an incredible role model for every one of us.

Tomorrow is your birthday I PRAY that others will pick up a pen and write to the paper ... to give you the greatest gift we can give another -- the gift of remembrance. Fly low angel girl they need to fell you close.XO (03/07/11)

a friend I have been thinking about you a lot lately. I didn't know you that well, because I was a few years younger than you, but I remember how nice you were to me and the other underclassmen at soccer and basketball. I will never forget you. I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday (tomorrow) (03/07/11)

(Anon) I cant believe its been 3 years since you have left us. It feels like just yesterday I saw your beautiful face walking down the hallways. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think about you. Rest Easy Beautiful Girl. Forever and Always in my heart (03/08/11)

margie Oh Brielle, What a special girl. God's gift to us. Think of you so often. Sweet smile, beautiful spirit, inspirational life. If we could all just learn from your example we'd be so much better than we are now. You brought so much joy to your mom and dad and love to your sister, Amanda and friendship to those who knew you. We miss you but we won't ever forget you. Happy Birthday Angel Love mrs. mcgehee (03/08/11)

dumpling Happy Birthday to my best friend! I love you and I've been thinking about you more then usual all day. Wish we could celebrate the big 2 - 0 together. You're amazing! I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU LIKE CRAZY. Everything I do, I do in your memory and you push me further to reach beyond all limits! Love you Cupcake! always&forever xoxox HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY I LOVE YOU! (03/08/11)

webmaster I just read the posts about the mural, completely disgraceful. The death of a child is such a rarity that if there a mural or some other lasting worthwhile memory for each and every one of them, even over many years there would be very few murals hanging as children just do not die that often. SHAME ON LHS!!! 8 yrs ago my son, then 10, was skiing with his soccer teammate down the slopes at Mountain Creek. My son's friend Tommy never made it to the end of the run. The next day my son asked if Tommy had said anything after he fell and I told him there was no way he could have that he pretty much died upon impact, the fall was that bad. My son said "then the last thing he ever said was GO, we were racing". My son has been living with this in his mind for 8 yrs now (he is now 18). I bring up this story on Brielle's page because I want all to know how the town of Sparta memorialized Tommy Nelson - in our local soccer park called Station Park there is a large soccer kicking-wall. The wall is similar in size to the old LHS paddle balls walls (just not as tall). It is off to the side of the fields, painted green, is wide and tall, and has a soccer-goalie painted on it so you have something to kick your ball at. I have seen many kids just kicking balls against the wall, I've seen local groups put small-sided games together using a small area on the wall as the goal, similar to 1/2 court basketball. Livingston surely has the space and the means for a similar jesture - and it is something that could be here forever. The wall has a plaque on it telling why it is there, yet many don't read it, which is fine, they don't need to, as long as they enjoy kicking their balls against Tommy's Wall. If anyone wants to come up to Sparta and see the memorial we built for young Tommy please let me know and I'd be happy to accompany you over there to see it. If our town of 15000 people could get this together, I'm sure Livingston, with much greater resources than what Sparta has, could get something truly meaningful built in Brielle's memory. Dan (03/01/11)

anon ive posted many times before even though i don't really know you...im 3 years younger but i can still feel the impact you made....HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIELLE!! i miss you and wish i knew you...happy 20th birthday..ur not forgotten <3 (03/08/11)

Aunt Candi Happy 20th Birthday, My beautiful baby girl. It's not fair that you can't be here to enjoy your day/life. But just know this... I read this blog all the time and besides your family, and friends, people that just heard of you, never met you even, you have inspired. You are truly 1 of a kind, and I will never understand or accept what happened. And even though I don't really need to type this next part because you already know I will. I will love and miss you forever. You are in me 24/7, not 1 second goes by that I don't think of you. I just hate what happened, but it's so dumb to even write that because we all know it. So I'll end my post with Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl Love Aunt Candi XXXOOO (03/08/11)

(Anon) your b-day is almost over. u were obviously sent here for a purpose - even though it was too short. u show us all the way. its odd that so many ppl come & go thru this world but how u seem to have remained in everyone's heart so much. its like u have not left us but are here guiding the way for lesser ppl like me. i wish your family only the best tho its too cruel even now. thanks for the guidance and luv u (03/08/11)

Brandi Tomorrow marks the third year of Brielle's passing, and I just wanted to say to everyone who has kept her memory and her beauty alive with them--- THANK YOU, and I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST! I know that Brielle would say please no attention towards me, because that's Brielle. But as her parent there are no words to express the emotions I have knowng that so many that truly care and do not forget her just because they don't see her everyday. Brielle is with me every second of every moment that passes, and I know she is watching her friends who need her all the time. We all know Brielle. She is always the first to help a friend. I would also like to thank everyone who has taken the time, with the issue of the mural. You are all exceptional people. Our whole family is very grateful. I do not want to ruin this posting with any ill thoughts, so I am just going to say it this one time. Mr. Draeger and all his pathetic minions hold positions that fill them with power. They have NO REAL POWER. The only power they have, they seem very intent on using it to destroy the memory, joy, hope, and inspiration of a young girl who actually LOVED Livingston High School.That is not power, that is a parasite.One would only hope that they would focus their energy into real problems with the school system, and the students, and even try a little to pretend to give a care. Their attitude, and actions have only once again shown to me that the well being and anything of importance in regard to the students is not on their agenda. It does make me question if they are relevant to any of their family, or loved ones. Do they even any loved ones. I would think that is a hard one. I was taught, and then passed the same teachings to my children - you will get back from others what you give. Respect, trust, love are all things you earn. It must be hard to be so miserable. I want to end this on a good note by letting people knoe that Columbia High School every year honors Brielle's memory, and at that school she is not forgotten, and they understand loyalty, and respect. Coach Wright, and her girls are all exceptional people. Thank you all for everything. Brandi Brielle's Mom (03/04/11)

mer cant believe its been 3 yrs..missing you today like crazy..love you so much (03/05/11)

<3 anon I only wish I was a better friend to you, and I work every day to try to be more and more like you. You are such an inspiration to everyone you knew, and even people you didn't. Anyone who was lucky enough to get to know you is a better person today because of it. Of anyone you deserved it the least to suffer, but clearly God wanted you up there with him, so your memory and story is with everyone. I think about you every day. Love and miss you so much Bri. (03/05/11)

loveyou. i miss you so much. 3 years- wow. xoxo loveyou. (03/05/11)

MT Brielle - thinking of you and your family always. In fact, I have a memory of you and Natalie ingrained in my mind on the bus to an away game and the two of you belting out the Nickelback song "Photograph." What I absolutely love about it is the line, "Look at this photograph, every time I do it makes me laugh...As much as it hurts, it brings a smile to my face...When I hear the song on the radio, it makes me believe that you are right there with me. Thanks for being you. xoxo me (02/17/11)

Aunt Candi I Love you so much, there are just no words to express how much! (02/01/11)

Brandi I just want to say to everyone who was involved in the mural, especially Gianna how sorry I am. It is a terrible thing, but unfortunately the truth -- The society that we live in today has no resemblence to anything that is good. Everyday it just seems to go downhill. Years ago, people showed respect, were proud of others. It is not like that anymore, and I feel so bad that this is the road for the future. Please know and remember that Brielle and our whole family knows how much everyone loves her, and we all appreciate the efforts made to fix this, but the reality is only the horrible,dishonorable, and it seems evil people of this world win. The good people never win the fight. Bernie Madoff will probably be honored by Livingston High School at some point. He only destroyed lives, and caused people to kill themselves. It is a sad thing for me personally to see this happen and I truly do not understand how it can be done without the school even blinking, but just remember Brielle is always withh all of us. She will never stop watching over everyone, as you all know - she cared for just sooooo many of her friends,teachers, staff at the school and her family. Hopefully one day the good people will come out on top, not the evil ones. I sincerely thank everyone for caring, and not forgetting about Bri. It reminds me that so many love her and miss her as I do. I wish everyone of you good Health, and Happiness. (02/04/11)

(Anon) I just knew Bri a little bit. I dont have stories about her around school becuase she was in a higher grade than me. We looked up to her always. She was like a higher being with her beutiful blond hair and her being such an althele. I cant imagine being a mom to someone so wonderful and then to have it be like this. you dont deserve this. I was a freshman and I will never ever ever forget her. (02/06/11)

(Anon) I don't know the person that wrote the above post, but u are right, it is unfair, it's so wrong. No matter how much time passes I will never understand how this could of happened. To Brielle, her Mom, Dad and Big Sister I am so sorry that this happened and that the school people are doing what they are doing. I'm sure it does not help but just know that you are not alone, Brielle is with all of us, you made such an amazing person, like the other person wrote above me, she is truly a higher being. There will never be anyone like her again. (02/07/11)

I MISS YOU SOO MUCH... just want your family to know im always thinking of them and wishing them the best... love you always&forever (01/02/11)

(Anon) This just exemplifies how horribly Livingston High School has handled all of this, and it is an embrassment to our town, our school, and our community. It is more embarassing as the principal, Pam, should feel ashamed of herself. How dare anyone touch the mural? Who gives them the right to take it down? This will only demolish Livingston High School reputation even more, as they have been so unhelpful in the past. They have no right to take down the mural. I LOVE YOU BRIELLE AND I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU. (01/23/11)

Jamie Singer They took the moral down? How dare they? thats such an embarrassment to our school..Gianna and others worked extremely hard in making that gorgeous picture... I hope it is safe and sound in her house somewhere or will be re-hung. Happy New Year Brielle, I cannot believe another year has passed. I miss you more then I could possibly explain in words. I have sudden, random dreams about you all the time, and I wake up and its so scary that your not here, but you will always be with me. I love you & I miss you more than I could explain. xoxoxoxoxoxo (01/25/11)

Jacqui Happy New Year, Brielle! I think about you a lot, especially whenever I talk about soccer or basketball. I still have my 21 wristband and I wear it every time I play. That always reminds me of you too. (01/05/11)

DAD ITS NICE TO SEE THINGS LIKE THIS IN BRIELLE'S MEMORY THANKS For his Mitzvah Project, Kyle collected baseball hats for Stack The Caps. He included a note with his invitation explaining more: “Stack The Caps began in 2008 at Camp Starlight, my sleepaway camp. The event was inspired by a camper, Brielle Namer, who died from a very rare form of cancer. In her memory, Camp Starlight’s owners and campers have organized drives to provide new baseball caps to chilren with cancer. My goal is to collect at least 200 caps which will stack approximately 12 feet high in honor and memory of the many children afflicted with cancer.” Kyle proudly standing with the caps his guests brought for donation as part of his Mitzvah Project (01/06/11)

anon8 its almost february, how is this possible march is only a little over a month away, its been so long yet it feels like yesterday. Im still angry, the truth is im afraid to let go of my anger because i think if i do then i wont remember you as clearly, im scared. <333338 (01/17/11)

(Anon) Don't be scared or angry, Brielle would never want that. Ask yourself how would it be possible to forget Brielle, that's easy. It's impossible to forget such an amazing person who touched so many people, she is imprinted on your heart and soul. I know she is mine and will always be. She is with me and I will love her till the day I die and even after that!! (01/18/11)

(Anon) Remember Brielle Namer      It has just been brought to my attention that the mural in memory of Brielle Namer has been taken down. For those who may not be aware, Brielle Namer battled Ewing’s sarcoma 11 months before passing away on March 5th, 2008. She was flawlessly beautiful, selfless, compassionate, dedicated to school and was a superior athlete. Although she never asked for the spotlight, it always found her. She was confident in her ability to fight, always exhibiting exceptional courage and endured chemo-therapy with extreme fortitude, handling it as a steeping stone to victory. There is nothing that Brielle wanted more than to be able to attend her classes and play with her team. Her heart, soul, and the inspiration she left us with reside within the walls of Livingston High School. To most of us, our last memories were seeing Brielle in the halls or at a game, and our fondest times to recall are associated with school.      Soon after Brielle passed, I sat down with Principle Pam McGroarty and discussed options for memorializing Brielle. Mrs. McGroarty did not give me many choices because in the event that another student should pass away, there must be an equal way to honor everyone. Murals act as a visual voice. They have been used throughout history as a platform for expression, as a way to send a message or inform on a particular theme or issue. Often while I was grieving I did not know the words, or perhaps the words did not exist, to adequately convey the depth of my grief, so I turned to other means of expression. Creative expression helps lift one's spirits; it aids those who are grieving to surface the chaotic feelings that they're experiencing internally by offering outlets to release the deep emotions generated in grief.      Originally Mrs. McGroarty seemed supportive of the mural and exchanged many e-mails regarding plans for the painting to begin towards the end of that summer. As we approached the school year, her support seemed to fade. Due to the lack of dedication from the school, the canvas that was supposed to be supplied was ultimately donated by the Big “L” Organization, the area to work on and store the mural was not provided as promised but Ms. Mazner generously offered a space in her classroom and all the paint supplies. A few girls and I stayed after school to paint the mural and it was finished within a few weeks. Mrs. McGroarty took about a month to finally frame and hang the mural in the new gym complex.        The main focus of the mural is a butterfly, which is the symbol of a short life; in a way, it makes Brielle tangible to us. Brielle’s mural allows everyone to be able to recognize her spirit in butterflies, which enables the community to make new memories even though Brielle isn’t here physically. The mural incorporates the number 21, a basketball, a soccer ball, and an open book representing academics, each in one of the corners respectfully. The mural also includes the words; strength, courage, compassion, humble, honesty, loyalty, dignity, a friend to all, and a love for life, which remind us of Brielle’s impeccable qualities. Signatures from teachers and students from the high school fill the background of the canvas.      Brielle was our hero and when she lost her battle, we lost our hope in ourselves. The mural helps us remember Brielle in her glory, and reminds us how we can see beauty in a tragic situation. The mural sends a message to everyone who views it that Brielle Namer will always be remembered and cherished. Loss can be a meaningful instrument for change, activating a strength that many of us are not aware that we possess. Creative expressions of grief are a reminder of our recuperative power; the ability to create beauty and find hope in tragedy. By taking down the mural, Livingston High School is denying the community our right to remember and memorialize our heroes. Do we not display the game ball from our state football championship as a way to recognize those individuals who we are proud of? The Livingston school system has no problem acknowledging students who have excelled academically or athletically but it seems to loose their pride for their students who have passed away while in high school. Other surrounding high schools have given posthumous diplomas, retired jerseys, created murals, dedicated buildings or athletic fields, and many other forms of expression for students who have died. It is not an issue of what is allowed by the state but it is a reflection of the school itself. Brielle Namer was an outstanding student, a terrific athlete, and a friend to all. Teachers and students alike have been affected by Brielle and she has not faded in our hearts. She deserves to be honored and will not be erased from our school’s history. Brielle’s mural is constant reminder to those who knew her of the way we can remember her in her glory, and her legacy continues to inspire those who did not have the chance to meet her. I’m writing this to shed light on the entire process that the school put me through in my attempt to get the mural in the first place, and to let everyone know that it’s crucial to have support so that it can be re-hung, for good.

BRIELLE FOREVER! I don't understand why they feel the need to take it down at all, you make some amazing points in what you wrote and true and beautiful statements about Brielle, they are all true. What I don't get is why take it down? Who is it hurting? Why do other schools which know Brielle and what she stood for, why did they do and continue to do things that her own high school refuses to do? It makes no sense. All I can say is this. THEIR WRONG, NO MATTER WHAT, THEY LEAVE IT DOWN THEY PUT IT BACK UP, EITHER WAY THE IMPACT THAT BRIELLE NAMER HAS HAD IN THIS WORLD AND THE PEOPLE IN IT WILL LAST FOREVER! You would just think that she would get the respect that she deserves, if not it will never change what she did and what she stood for. I'd like to see any of those people go for a chemo treatment and then right after go for a basketball practice! Sounds funny, I know but she did do that, all the while keeping her grades up, because all she wanted was to be back in school and back on the team. There will never be another person like Brielle ever again, and her spirit will still shine on with or without the mural. For those that know her and even if you read the messages here those that never met her, they can't believe what their reading, she touched so many and had such a huge impact on this world that nothing will ever change that ! (01/21/11)

BRIELLE FOREVER ! I just noticed the date, it's fitting that I write this on the 21st, that's her number. You should respect her, but always know this, no matter what you do you can never dishonor her, you are incapable of that. But you should respect her, it's what she deserves, that and so so much more ! (01/21/11)

pineda hi BriBri i miss you. i've been thinking about you a lot lately. ive changed a lot within the past few years and you've had a lot to do with the person that ive turned out to be and i thank you for that. you were a wonderful amazing truly genuine and caring person and you have inspired me to be the best that i can be and to find the good in all things and most of all to never give up. i love you and miss you and you will forever remain in our hearts. 21 always (12/24/10)

Aunt Candi My Beautiful Baby Girl, I just Love and Miss you so much, you have no idea. Just be safe my baby. I'm holding down the fort, and I'm taking care of Vic so you don't have anything to worry about. Just know how much I love you forever. XXXOOOO (12/28/10)

ANON Stay Happy, Healthy and Safe . Have the BEST NEW YEAR. Always and Forever we are together. (12/31/10)

Gianna “You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, ...or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.” -David Harkins (01/20/11)

(Anon) just saying hi. (11/05/10)

Coach M Tomorrow will be Thanksgiving. We all will give thanks for family & friends. I would also like to give thanks for the time that I was blessed to have knwon and coached Brielle. Although, in relative terms, the time was short, Brielle has inspired and touched my life in many ways. As a basketball player, she was on her way to becoming great, and always out-worked the other 9 girls on the court. As a leader & captain, before and after she got sick, she was a perosn who teammates could look to as an example of hard work & perseverance. So, while I miss her and think of her often, I want to make sure that I am respectful and thankful for the time I did have with Brielle. She was the best... ALWAYS... (11/24/10)

JEFF coach that was a nice thing you wrote about Brielle its nice to read and makes many people feel good. I think people should write and tell there stores about Bri and post them it makes me happy to read and it keeps her memory alive and all the good that we all loved about her and how she changes the lifes of everone Thank you for remembering and keep posting (11/27/10)

(Anon) Bri's memory will be alive forever (11/30/10)

A Friend It's impossible not for Bri to be remembered because even at such a young age, it's so hard to understand the impact that she had on so many people younger and older the she herself. Ask yourself how she did it. You can't answer because Brielle is truly 1 of a kind. She is the most amazing person that I have ever met in my life. The only part I hate writing in this post is that I have to write remember and words like that, for it would be a better world with her still in it, but we all know that. But for Bri herself, she is the smartest, bravest, kindest and truly most amazing person that ever existed and I truly doubt that there will ever be someone like her again, for that's impossible. BRIELLE FOREVER. Plain and simple (11/30/10)

ME I LOVE YOU BABY GIRL, NOW & FOREVER !! Not a second goes by that your not in my thoughts, always know that, but I know you do.It's just so hard to believe that it's 2 years and 8 months today. In some ways it seems like forever and at others it seems like yesterday. Either way I HATE it and just want you back here with us, the way it is supposed to be. (11/05/10)

READ PLEASE It is a Nightmare, it is Cruel and it does Suck so very much. It is past the notion of believeable. BUT, Brielle would not want you to feel like this, we owe it to her to be strong. Even though I pretty much stink at it, you have to try. Be as STRONG and POWERFUL and BRAVE like Brielle is! Or as strong as you can, it's what she wants.. (11/01/10)

Nicole I didn't know you very well... at all really... but what I do know is that you were so very loved. Looking at your smile, I see light. I see genuine light and peace. I'm sure that you were put here as a conduit for love. You've touched people's lives in ways that have significantly changed the way they see the world and the way that they love. I wish your family love and comfort... but I know that an angel such as you, is still in their presence, shining that light on their hearts and making each day somehow more beautiful. Through the pain, they will find what you had already discovered. LOVE and LIGHT and the beauty of LIFE. Bless you always. (09/28/10)

I know it sounds crazy but I just still can't believe your not here. I just don't know how it's possible. I just want to get off this nightmare train ride and go back to normal, the way it's supposed to be. I love u so much, and miss u, that's a laugh because there are no words to how much I miss u.

(Anon) Luv u more than ever and the pain isnt getting any easier. Still, I am so glad i know u and that u r a part of my life. I wouldnt be the same person if I hadnt been touched by u. I am so sorry for everyones pain but so grateful for what i have from u. (06/29/10)

Me Hi Beautiful Girl, Just wanted to say that I miss you and love you so much. Nothing is the same without you. Pretty much everything stinks, life is just different without u in it. It just wasen't supposed to ever be like this. I have no idea how this happened or how the heck it even could of happened, not sure if that makes sense, but losing u, that does not make sense! Love u 4 EVER (06/03/10)

JABB I sit here looking at the wall when there used to be so many messages everyday and now its less. People are learning to deal with loosing you and some are not. I sit here and just think most of the time to myself. I had a conversation with someone today about you and I said amazing things. But then he asked what do you believe happens. I said I want her to be in a happy place with loved ones around her not feeling any pain whatsoever. He said how do you know there is a happy place and I said I do not know. But I just hope she's okay. I want to be able to know your okay and I do not have a way of knowing. You are the strongest and bravest person I know and I just wish I knew something but I don't. So when its my turn to die I guess I will find out I said to my friend. I miss you more then anything I have no one to do anything with or even talk to. Everyday I see kids around and I think of you when it comes to sports or your ridicoulous curly hair you have. When I think about you I get a huge smile. On my face your face burns bright in my thoughts everyday. I just don't understand why and never will. I LOVE YOU YOU KNOW WHO THIS IS. See you soon Boo Boo (06/09/10)

(Anon) I believe that Brielle is in the real world, pain free and healthy, I believe that she misses her family and might not understand why we are all not together the way we should be. As for us, I believe we are in Hell, who's to say I'm wrong, no one can prove that where we are now is not hell. But that's what I believe, because it sure as heck feels like it. But everyone is free to believe in what they wish, this is just what I think. (06/09/10)

(Anon) Its not that I have forgotten to write or anything; its just that I now know that I can scream until I am hoarse, or I am cry until I am dizzy, but none of that will get me to feel her touch again or hear her voice. Nothing nothing nothing is making the pain go away. (06/10/10)

ANON Nothing in my life will ever be the same without Brielle. I know that sounds crazy, but it's not. When someone is such a huge part of your life - you just learn to make the best of what you have. All tis really means is that nothing means what it used to, not having her to share in it with me. Birthdays, holidays, etc.. they just come and go. I really know that when I am in the real world not this TEST world with Brielle that I will be alive again and be able to enjoy. Always and forever you are with me we are never alone. Friends are friends till infinity. Love you Bri. (06/10/10)

Candi I LOVE and MISS you A LOT. With you always and always. My beautiful baby girl (06/19/10)

JABB I sit here looking at the wall when there used to be so many messages everyday and now its less. People are learning to deal with loosing you and some are not. I sit here and just think most of the time to myself. I had a conversation with someone today about you and I said amazing things. But then he asked what do you believe happens. I said I want her to be in a happy place with loved ones around her not feeling any pain whatsoever. He said how do you know there is a happy place and I said I do not know. But I just hope she's okay. I want to be able to know your okay and I do not have a way of knowing. You are the strongest and bravest person I know and I just wish I knew something but I don't. So when its my turn to die I guess I will find out I said to my friend. I miss you more then anything I have no one to do anything with or even talk to. Everyday I see kids around and I think of you when it comes to sports or your ridicoulous curly hair you have. When I think about you I get a huge smile. On my face your face burns bright in my thoughts everyday. I just don't understand why and never will. I LOVE YOU YOU KNOW WHO THIS IS. See you soon Boo Boo (06/09/10)

Dan/webmaster Would love to have a bracelet for my daughter to wear. (05/01/10)

(Anon) argh all of a sudden a wave of missing you came upon me. i want to screeeaaammmm. this is ridiculous and its time this is over. I need to hug you NOW. (05/17/10)

(Anon) I wish this nightmare was over to, I couldn't agree with you more. To actually believe that this happened is practically impossible. To be here in the world without her is practically impossible, so 1 more time I agree and I wish this nightmare was over ! (05/18/10)

ME you are with me everyday i love youXOXOXO (05/19/10)

(Anon) this is an awful nightmare. I can tell u that I am a much much better person now because every decision i make i do it based on what i think she would have done or advised me to do. she has an ginormous influence on me until this day and I am sure that it will last forever. (05/20/10)

xoxoxo still in my thoughts every single moment of every single day. I think this will never change. (04/06/10)

BRIELLES DAD ANYONE WHO NEEDS A BRACELET CAN GET ONE FROM ME ANYTIME JUST LET ME KNOW (04/20/10)

xooxoxo none of us are obsessed - we are inspired. (04/24/10)

(Anon) Love u Brielle, so very much, Miss you like crazy and again just love u always (04/26/10)

ANON Always together, never apart. Forever. (04/06/10)

(Anon) I agree not a second goes by that you are not with me, words cannot express how much I love you and miss you. My baby girl, you have no idea. I love you so much forever (04/06/10)

ANON You are with me everyday. I miss you. Love You (04/12/10)

dumpling its been way to long since ive seen you in my dreams. i miss you and stare at your gorgeous face sitting on my desk everyday. that picture makes me smile because i remember how happy we were at that moment. and from there i think about all those moments. the moments we got in trouble together. the moments we were laughing so hard we couldnt stop. the moments i cried and you made fun of me. and the moments me cried together. they all rush back when i look at the picture everyday. i almost called you the other day, then reality struck. reality sucks. i want to go back to those days where it didnt matter, where we had fun, where we laughed together. i feel the emptiness. i miss you more than you know more than you could imagine. its one of those days bri those days where i just want to hear your voice and call you. i was playing soccer the other day, and as i was standing in goal i couldnt help but to giggle because i remember when i used to stand in goal clueless while you and leiter would kick balls at me as hard as you could and would jump on me in the middle of the field. i miss you forever brielle namer. you were the greatest thing to ever happen to me! your my best friend and i will love you forever&always!!! (04/13/10)

(Anon) A nasty person made reference to the fact that I still wear the black bracelet to honor the memory of Brielle. In trying to be hurtful, this person called me "obsessed with a 17 year old girl." I wear the bracelet because Brielle inspired me. As I have said, the light she brought into my life is one that will not go out. Brielle's ability to influence all groups of people, whether it be peers or adults, family members or friends, teammates or teachers is something I strive for in my own life. I was lucky to have come in contact with her, and my life will be touched by her...... ALWAYS. (04/15/10)

(Anon) To the Person above, Your so not alone, so never feel that way. I wear on my wrist the green bracelet just as many other people that I know do. Personally I will continue to wear it for as long as humanilly possible. The person that attacked you verbally was nothing but ignorant, and where I would want to be rude and say something fitting to that person, lets do as Brielle tought us, we can try to enlighten the stupid, but will not always succeed, so when you can't succeed at it then just ignore the stupid comments. Your not obsessed, I'm not obsessed. We all just miss and love an amazing person that touched and tought us greatly. to put it as simply as I can. Don't let the ignorant people get to you, it's so not worth it! Brielle Love you forever and ever and ever (04/15/10)

LOVE IS BRI I WILL ALWAYS WEAR MY BRACELET AND WILL ALWAYS. FOR ALL BRI GIVE TO THE WORLD HER SMILE AND THE GREAT PERSON SHE IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE (04/15/10)

ANON I wear my bracelet everyday, and am not sick or obsessed. People wear all different things for many reasons. Many still wear the Livestrong bracelets, pink hearts, etc. I wear mine for a very certain reason. When I have doubts, or question myself or just need that little extra something, I look at my arm and feel better. I feel that extra strength is with me. Brielle was a great friend to me, and keeping her close makes me stronger and better. Why would I choose to remove my bracelet, and not have my friend with me. When my bracelet gets all gross I will just call the Namers as I know they have many extras and I know they are so proud that so many of Brielle's friends keep her close and find comfort. Nobody should judge anyone on anything, especially something like wearing a bracelet in memory of a good friend. I guess some people are ignorant or unhappy, but then they shouldn't be wearing a bracelet as we all know Brielle was not an ignorant or miserable person. She would never pass a comment so thoughtless or rude. Anyone who wants to wear their bracelets should, and those who don't should just take them off. We live our lives, not anyone else's.

(Anon) ;{ i dont want these next few days to come... i still don't understand how God could let this happen (03/03/10)

(ANON) 2 years ago today... Still feels like yesterday. We miss you beyond belief, Brielle. It just isn't fair that you were taken away from us so soon. I'll never understand how this God could've let this happen. Please watch over everyone over the next few days because they're going to need you with them to reassure them, especially your family. We love you, babydoll<3 (03/05/10)

Anonymous... Damn, I forgot how much it hurts to remember. Don't get me wrong, there is not one day that goes by that I don't think of you, but today is more special... I still remember everything and it hurts the same as it did 2 years ago. I can't imagine what your family and closest friends are going through. Please watch over them and protect them and assure them that you are the wind of their backs and the sun in their faces. We miss you beyond belief, Brielle, and we love you always. It wasn't your time to go, but thats life. Sometimes its not fair because the good die young and you were the best there was. (03/05/10)

"Once in a lifetime, God opens up the skies and drops and angel on earth; an angel to help people, save people, change people, and create people. Once that angel has done it's work, God calls them back to heaven, and even with its departure, so sad and heartbreaking, we learn and change from that pain. You are that angel <3" you did more for everyone than anyone i've ever met, you are truely the best and were taken too early...love and miss you soooo much <3 21 forever. (03/03/10)

(03/03/10)

(Anon) I LOVE you so much, I HATE tomorrow (03/04/10)

love you<3 "You're the words that come out easy, and I am speechless at best. Your star it seems to shine above the rest. You're the face before the cameras, the smile I'd like to earn. The closest thing to perfect, in a Hollywood to burn. You're the beauty that is deeper than eyes can merely see, the closest thing to perfect but the farthest thing from me." (03/04/10)

(Anon) I still can't believe that it has been two years since you have left us. I still fail to comprehend why god would take such a beautiful, loving, caring, funny, athletic girl from people who love her so much. There is not a day that goes by where I do not think of you and your family. You will be in my heart forever and I try to take a little piece of you where ever I go. Please keep looking down on us, we all still really need you. Rest easy my beautiful angel...Love you always and forever. <3 21<3 (03/04/10)

ANON My dearest friend- I miss you so much. everyday seems just sadder then the next. I wish I could find it in me to accept this, but I never will. It is really impossible to be happy without you here. I depend on you for so much. I have nobody to make me laugh, tell me when I am wrong, cheer me on, cheer me up, and nobody to confide in. I really miss you. Please don't forget me. no matter what you will always be my BEST FRIEND FOREVER. There will never be anyone more kind, trusting, and truly wonderful like you. I miss you more then anything. Love you always (02/01/10)

T'Anna I apoligize, but I have no idea who you are. I saw a link on facebook, and i just clicked on it. I looked through your pictures, and all the comments, wondering what happened to this girl, she gorgous, was it a car accident, was it drunk driving, what happened? I continued to read and came across a comment that mentioned that you had cancer. I than wanted to know more and more so i googled you, and found this. Something told me just read about this girl, find out more about this girl, im not a creep or anything, I am a stranger to u, ur friends and family but u are a remarkable young girl that had her life taken from a deadly diease. You were so young, but i do bless your family and friends, and glad that they had you in there life, your story and your friends comments can make heads turn, and i am one, so i had to post this. My name is T'Anna Kimbrough, im from Morristown, I most likely came across you in some path becuase i played basketball as well..although i graduated 08 i played sophmore yr..but i give ur family my blessins and god took a beautiful angel.

Me Hey Baby Girl, It's me, I have not posted in a bit, it hurts, you wait for it to lessen but it does not. You wait for it to become bareable, but it does not. It's so hard, you will be 19 soon but I still see you as 3 days before your 17th birthday. I don't know if that will stop or not. I can only repeat as I've done on here before, time does not make things better. It still feels like yesterday. I miss and love you so so much, and I always will. Love you forever and ever (02/15/10)

(Anon) I wrote this song, or maybe it's a poem. Not sure really I just wrote what I feel. Brielle's Birthday is comming up and well I have a lot of feelings inside of me, and they need to come out, so here is what I have, make of it what you will. I don't want to play, I don't want to stay, I just want to get away. How much can a heart take just before it breaks, I can't play this game, it never ends. So hard make belivin, all this deceiving. They say they give you all that you can take, But I know that's a mistake. Sometimes, you can't act the role, you can't face another day, what do you do when you have no choice, back to make belivin, that you have a reason to face another day. I can't stop the tears that come to my eyes, they burn and roll down my face, but I have to play the game, mke belive thats its the same. But I don'twant to play, I don'twant to stay, I just want to get away. All you want is to stop the pain, make the world stop or go back before the mightmar started. But you know it can't do that. You try so hard to make it right, but this world can never be what it was before to me. You took the heart and soul, you took tjhe most amazing one. What are we to do, where are we to go? Just another day, like the one before, this existance has to stop. My heart's broken and it's stopped, I can't fix a thing, no matter how much I want to. I can't change a thing. We want to yell, we want to blame, but there is no one in this stupid game. (02/18/10)

(Anon) HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I miss u so much. luv u 4ever and ever (01/01/10)

(Anon) this is tooo much for me. Now u guys r making me cry again. I get so angry. this is ridiculous i cant beleive how much i miss her (01/29/10)

(Anon) 1 year and 10 months, its unreal in the truest sense of the word. Some days I just get by, I'm busy with work, school etc. Other days I just stop if it's a thought or I see a picture of Brielle I just stop and say what the heck. How is this possible, is this really real? How could it be real. I keep waiting for the nightmare to be over but it never ends, it's a different world as we once knew it, 1 that is pretty sucky because the most amazing person I have ever known is not in it. I ask again, How is that possible? I know Bri would be really pissed with me being the way I am, and all I can say is I am trying to live up to her standards, but that's a really high bar to reach. But I do keep trying every single day, I'm trying so hard to make you proud of me Bri so please have some patience with me. I love you so much! (01/06/10)

(Anon) i feel the same way as the person who wrote the msg above this one. New Years was rough without Bri and its hard to think of starting another year without her close by. even though all of us now much better ppl because of her high standrads and part her legacy is making us become better, no one at all can come close to being her. u are soooo special. simply no one like u (01/10/10)

ANON I miss you and love you very much. 2010 is just another number, as it it just another year. You are with me always and that will never change. Always and Forever (01/14/10)

ANON miss you so much, pretty girl<3 keep shining your beautiful face through the sun. we all love and miss you beyond words.. (01/14/10)

(Anon) Hi Brielle, I dont think i ever met you but my good friend knew you really well. you sound like an AMAZING person. I was a junior when it was your last year at camp. I remembered that i always looked up to you. I thought you were gorgeous, smart an amazing athlete and i wanted to be just like you when i become a senior. Reading all the posts on this website still makes me want to be just like you. I know that you are hear in everyone hearts. Once again, you are beautiful and seem like a perfect girl. (01/20/10)

(Anon) right now, at this moment, i miss u so much. i need to feel your hug and see your pretty face and hear your voice and watch you play ball and plan a future with you in it and know that u will be with me, here, for all the good times to come. its too hard. (01/21/10)

justme Hey Bri ... I read this qupte today and it made me think of you and how much you did in your short time here with us ... The Butterfly counts not months but moments, And has time enough. (01/28/10)

Me Short time here with us, what a joke. My rudeness is not directed to the person that typed the above comment, it is directed at the FACT that Brielle was here for a short time. That is a sick joke. (01/28/10)

#21 Dear bri, i dont think you understood how meaningful you were to me, you tought me everything. The person that i am today, i owe it mostly to you, you were my role model. The day is coming up soon the day you told me would be the best ever. If i could have one thing is that you could be there. There was a piece of me that was gone but now i realize that, that piece is still there stronger then ever. Hope you like my story about you for school, i couldnt have thought of a better person too write it about. I know that when i say it infront of my class you will be there guiding me. Holding back those tears for me like a best friend would. Everyday before i make a decision i think of what you would say or what you would do. You meen the world to me. Stay in my heart bri xoxxxo (01/20/10)

(12/08/09)

MT To the Namer's - the Player of the Year Award honoring Brielle brought tears to my eyes. What a fantastic way to honor Brielle! I hope that every player who is fortunate enough to receive the award will exhibit many of her amazing qualities; those of a team player, a friend, a competitor and of course, an all-around fabulous young woman. Brielle was truly inspiring to each person she met and I think of her and your family every day. She will always be in my heart. (12/09/09)

a friend you were an amazing person, always in our hearts (12/12/09)

Anon Just wanted to say Hi again, and let you knowthat I know we are always together forever. Holidays pretty much stink without being able to be with you. I miss your voice. Best Friends till eternity. Love you always. (12/15/09)

BIG SISTER LEAVING FOR PUERTO RICO TODAY!!!I LOVE YOU UR FACE WILL BE PUT UP IN THE PALM STEAK HOUSE I LOVE U (11/17/09)

Candi I LOVE you so much! Can't begin to tell you how much I miss you and wish that we could all be together again. I love you baby girl, always (11/18/09)

xoxoxo Hey Bri's family, Bri is by far the most special person ever. i am so sorry that u have to be without her now and the pain must be unbearable. But u guys need to remember that u had the most amazing person ever in your family and Bri is someone who had made us all better people. she has such a strong legacy. i think about all the great things that could have been nowadays (college and basketball) but i try to focus on her lasting influence. i am so sorry u must be hurting so much but u all did a great thing by letting us have her for the time we did. (11/18/09)

justme Love never disappears for death is a non-event. I have merely retired to the room next door. You and I are the same; what we were for each other, we still are. Speak to me as you always have, do not use a different tone, do not be sad. Continue to laugh at what made us laugh. Smile and think of me. Life means what it has always meant. The link is not severed. Why should I be out of your soul if I am out of your sight? I will wait for you, I am not here, but just on the other side of this path. You see, all is well. --St. Augustine (11/19/09)

anon Even though brielle and i never spoke and i only knew her by name/face, I truly admire the person that she was and know that the legacy she left will be felt by so many people forever and always. In that way, she is always living in the hearts and souls of the people she has impacted. I hope that I can live my life the way that I know that she did -- to the fullest, and with the utmost integrity. She will continue to inspire me always. (11/20/09)

ANON Just wanted to say Hi again, and to let you know I miss you very much. You are always with me, always in my heart, and soul. Always and forever. LOVE YOU (11/27/09)

Matten I have never written here before... I have WANTED to write, but I just wasn't sure of the right things to say... I think of Brielle everyday... in so many sitations for so many reasons... she touched my life, just as she did so many others... and I feel greatful and blessed to have known her... And I think of Jeff, Brandi, & Amanda everyday, too... they are all in my heart. (11/01/09)

mer miss you so much..always thinking about you..love you forever..dont forget that (11/08/09)

(Anon) Hey Beautiful Girl, I miss you so much, it's been so long. Like a nightmare that you just can't wake up from. I honestly don't mean to be depressing but this is nuts! How are we supposed to do this? (11/10/09)

ANON Hey Bri - Just wanted to say how much I miss you.Not a day goes by that you are not in my head. I am very lonely without you. I need my rock, the voice of reason that you have always been for me. This really stinks. Everyone keeps saying it will get easier, how come I find it harder everyday? You are just someone who is under my skin forever. Miss you so much it hurts. Everytime you turn around there seems to be another stupid holiday. I wish we could just get rid of them all. They don't have the same meaning without being able to share them with you. Stay safe. (11/11/09)

(Anon) Hey Bri!!! I have been thinking about you a lot lately. Yesterday while I was driving I began to think of you. All of a sudden a chill came over my body. I felt my skin and it was not cold to touch and then i had my friend feel my arm. She told me wow your skin is warm but you still have goosebumps. I knew that it was you, i knew it was you letting me know that you are here walking beside me. I want you to know that I love you and miss you and there is not a day that goes by that I do not think you of. <3 21 Forever <3 (11/12/09)

(Anon) One of my sorority sisters' best friend died 2 weeks ago in a car accident. Can you please keep an eye on him and make sure to show him the ropes. I told my sister that I would ask you to do this because I know that you are a beautiful girl that loved to help other people. His name is Kyle. He is good hands with you I know it. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you. I love you and miss you!! (11/12/09)

justme just thinking of you Bri ... we always do .. G and I talk about you all the time. We saw Amanda the other day. I love her. Don't worry we're going over to see mom and dad.. G's been sick and we didn't want to get anyone else sick. I know you're with all of them. You're not forgotten , but then you already know that. Fly close, we need you sweetie. (11/12/09)

(Anon) I agree with some of what you wrote, no offense, Brielle is perfect, Brielle is wonderful and beautiful and everything else. She is to good for this world but still it's so unfair, she should be here, we need her here and it's just not fair! I mean no offense what so ever to the person that wrote the above, I just wrote what I felt in my heart, so please understand that. Thank u (09/06/09)

xox Miss you so much, Bri. Keep shining your pretty face from up above<3 (09/07/09)

does it matter? The thing I'll never ever ever ever ever ever EVER forget about Brielle is that she was genuine. She didn't love and accept people because it was what she was supposed to do; she sincerely cared about all who interacted with her. And, I was only lucky enough to know her when she was a pre-teen. There was only one way to go for her; and that was up up up. For anyone who was lucky enough to meet/know her--we can appreciate that her "down" was and is probably more than any of the rest of our "ups" have the potential to be. I'm not necessarily sorry for Brielle or the Namer familly: I'm saddened for all those who never got a chance to let who she was change you for the better just by her being around. WBXOXOXOXOXOXO (09/10/09)

:-( I came on this site to get some comfort and i see so many others have too. I dont know what to say except that Bri is the most perfect person. I dont understand why her family has to go on without her and with such agony. She made a difference in all our lives. (09/10/09)

(Anon) I just want everything to go back to the way it was before. I want to feel without a care again. I know I need to get used to this way but i cant. i think back to all the games and school and camp and i want that back again. (09/12/09)

(Anon) hi honey, at school now and i am telling some new college friends about u. now they know u too. i showed them your pics on facebook and here too and they agree that u r the most beautiful person. they can tell how wonderful u r. i will make sure that i tell them everything like about camp and stuff. luv u 4ever (09/16/09)

ANON hey beautiful- The holidays are here again, and they mean nothing at all without you. It doesn't mater what holiday- they are all nothing without you. I think of you everyday, and I talk to you everyday- I know you hear me. Live, Love, and Laugh!!!!. We are all with you everywhere and all the time. You are never alone. Always and Forever. (09/17/09)

Someone who loves you Hey- It's me again. Just wanted to let you know that you mean as much to me today as any other day. It never changes, and it never will. We will always be together. I just really miss your voice and smile, and advice. Love you so much. (09/22/09)

just me Hi Bri, thinking of you today.... no special reason, maybe just because you are so special. Fly low sweetie everyone still needs you here. (09/23/09)

Me I come here everyday, I don't post everyday cause then I just would say the same things over and over again. But I speak nothing but the truth.I love you so much, I miss you so much. and yea the holidays are here, but it don't matter, its just another day just like the rest. But I have been forgetting to write something which I saw above, you are not alone, cause I and so many are with you. and yea I would give anything just to see and hear you. I just miss u so much. I just dont know how this could happen im sorry baby im so sorry. I do and will love u forever and ever (09/23/09)

Aunt Candi I Love you, and miss you a lot. (09/03/09)

(Anon) i miss you soo much Bri Bri .. i think about you all the time, its impossible not to. keep watching over us..we all need you <3 RIP 21 forever and ever <3 (09/25/09)

(Anon) Hey everyone, its difficult w/the holidays here to think about being happy, or whole again. its hard for me & it must be unbearable for your family. Honey, your family is so classy and its so wrong that u guys cant be togther. Our hearts r broken. i hope your family can find some comfort knowing that this experince is making a differece since u touched all of us and u will forevcer be with us. i think aboiut what could have been and then stop myself b/c that doesnt matter. what matters is what is now. So what we have is a broken heart that is stronger and better b/c we have u there and u are making sure that a whole bunch of peopel who knew u r going to be so much better people than if they didnt know u. i am rambeling but i am mixed up with my feelings. I want everyone to be happy again. (09/27/09)

(Anon) ok I will leave a msg; bri - love u so much and miss u so much. (09/04/09)

Me It's funny I read the sign wherever we go, we take a piece of you with us, and I laugh because it's impossible not to. Or I read we will never forget you, and again I laugh because your a part of me, body & soul. You are with me all of the time 24/7. I don't need to see a picture of you, or read your name or see the # 21, because your impact on me is forever imprinted in me. Your amazing strength, humor, bravery, heck everything else I just can't think of the words right this second, but all of it, all of you is forever in me. I'd so much rather have you in front of me, duh! but I just mean that there is no question of not remembering you or anything else stupid like that. I also can say that even though you left us at way way to early of an age, you are the most amazing person I have ever met in my life, there will never ever be another person that will ever come close to being as wonderful, and kind, and bright and brave, etc. as you... and I truly mean that. I just love & miss u so much, and its hard, its hard a lot of the times, I know you would be handling it a lot better if the situation were reverse, and I really really wish it were! but again I have to say I'm not you, heck don't even come close. I can just say I'm doing the best I can, and thats all i can do. But living without you, its, its really almost impossible. But I think of you and I try to pull some of your strength into me, cause I know thats what you would want me to do, so all I can say is Bri Bri I'm trying, so don't be to mad at me. Love u forever and ever and beyond the rest of time xoxoxo (09/04/09)

me From the moment I received my "Brielle Always 'n Forever" bracelet, I said I would wear it until it fell off...well, last week, I started to notice my bracelet (which went from green to white a LONG time ago), was started to break...then, just the other day, it did just that...it fell off...I didn't know what to think. I know I will never forget Brielle (and I have spare bracelets), but it just felt symbolic to me. I think of you and your family all the time. This sunshine-filled weekend reinforces to me that you are definitely with us. :) Continue to shine down, and keep an eye on all of us...miss you and think of you often..xoxo (09/05/09)

just me Hi sweetie, I went over to the high school today and I saw the benches and the bricks in the walkway. I just sat there awhile and thought of you.It felt like you were there. I hope you like what we're trying to create. I think it will be beautiful when we get some flowers planted. When everyone comes home for football games they can go sit on your benches and think how blessed we were to have you in our lives. Do you think you could help Gianna , you know she doesn't like change too much and shes sooo nervous about college. Stay close , fly low and let us know you're here. (09/05/09)

BIG SISTER SOME DAYS IS HARD 1 YEAR 6 MONTHS HOW DO PEOPLE HANDLE THIS (09/05/09)

anon this is my first time writing a message here. brielle, i just wanted to let you know that i think about you every day at college. we were never close, but i've known you since elementary school. ive always thought of you as the nicest person ive ever known. now, when im trying to adjust to my knew life, every single day i think of you, and how i want to be more like you. i try to be like you as much as i can-to be kind and nice to every person i encounter and never judge anyone. i hope one day i can finally say that i came close to being like you-but i know girls like you come once in a lifetime, and im so lucky to have known you. thanks for all of your help in my life, and for touching the heart of every person around you. the truth is, you were too good for us. you were perfect and you deserved better than this world, and i take comfort in knowing that you are in a better place.

Me I knew when you were here that you were something else, something special. I'd look at you, and could simply not believe how good and kind you are. I just also never ever imagined a life without you in it. It's almost the same as asking the sun not to rise, the grass not to be green, etc.etc. Life is so different now, its horrible having to live each day without you. You have to live each day with a huge part of your heart and soul missing, and it's not easy. But we are trying. I love and miss you so much my beautiful little girl, just so much... (08/07/09)

DAD its your sisters bday tommorrow and i no you will be with us we all love you see you in A C xoxoxoxox (07/29/09)

ASAF A couple years ago, in eighth grade, I was invited to a bat mitzvah and I didn't really know anyone there. The only two people I sort of knew were Brielle and one of her friends. I was sitting on the side because I was really shy and to be totally honest, I wasn’t a very good dancer. I just sat there and watched everyone else have a good time. As I sat, these two beautiful girls, Brielle and her friend, came up to me and asked me to dance. Being very shy, I said no, but they wouldn’t take no for an answer. Brielle's friend walked away, but Brielle stayed there. She told me that it would be a lot of fun to dance, but I still said no. I looked away and I felt a hand on mine. She took my hand and pulled me out of my seat. That girl may not have looked powerful, but she yanked me straight out of my seat. She brought me straight to the middle of the dance floor and we started to dance. Everyone who was dancing stopped and watched me and Brielle dance. I didn’t notice anyone else stop; I just was thinking that I was dancing with the prettiest girl at the party. I didn’t really care that I wasn’t the best dancer because Brielle made me feel really comfortable. We danced for the rest of the song and when the song ended, Brielle gave me a hug and I will never forget what she said, "That was really fun Asaf, just have fun." Now, I live my life by what she said. Everyday I live to have fun. Anyone that knows me knows that I don’t get angry and that I always have a smile on my face no matter how bad things get because in the end, life is short and you always have to have fun. That’s what Brielle did, and that is what I am going to do. I miss you Brielle, and I never thanked you in person, but I want to say it now. Even though we weren’t the best of friends, I did have some classes with you and I always admired your overall goodness. You were pretty, you were smart, and you always had fun. I just wanted to say, "Thank you Brielle, I’ll always remember you." (07/02/09)

megan I first met Brielle working at camp starlight in the summer of 2004. She didn’t live in my bunk but she might as well, because she was a lower deb in bunk 20 and was always around wanting to borrow clothes or gossip about something. At first I was a little intimated by her because she was blond and beautiful(and only 13 even though I was 20), but the second I started talking to her I knew she was an amazing person. During lacrosse, I knew if I could get Brielle to do something I could all the girls in her division to do it. The more I got to know this amazing kid the more I liked her. She was good at so many things and one had to admire her for who Brielle was. She was one of those kids that reminded you why you liked working with teenager, why you enjoyed doing what you were doing. She just wanted to have fun and be a kid. She truly was a beautiful person inside and out and I am very sadden by her lost. To Brielle family you raised and amazing women and to the girls in bunk 19 and 20 I know how hard this must be for and I sympathize for yours and everyone lost. Brielle was just an angel taken too soon. I’ll miss you! (07/02/09)

your dumpling i wish i could have my bestie back. even for a day i dont care i just need to spend some time with you. ive been thinking about you a lot lately. today i was telling my sister the story about how at line up we were talking and i asked you what a "dead leg" was so you said youd should show me. so you punched me in the leg so hard i fell to ground. i was laughing so hard i couldnt feel my leg and you looked at me and go, "thats a dead leg" and we just stood there and laughed. and of course got yelled at to shut up. ugg what i would do for another day like that. im going to college soon... its weird i thought wed be doing this together. we still are. i know your there still. come play with me bri bri. i love you forever!!!

(Anon) It's funny, the world goes on around you, but it's so different, just so very different. Nothing is the same since you left and nothing will ever be the same.

Brielle @ 05:19 AM   Add Comment

ANON Well Brielle, graduation is almost here, and I can honestly tell you it has so little meaning without you. The parties are about to start and we are missing the person to tell us not to drink, or do anything. The person who holds our heads when we are puking. I just don't know how when you did everything right, and so many of us do what we want you are not here. You know what you don't nneed to walk and get a diploma- you earned it long ago, and I really mean it. You were always smarter, prettier, and ALWAYS did the right thing - even when it pissed me and others off. I guess that's the guilt we have to carry. Why were you so PERFECT? What made you so GOOD? That is why I hurt so much now, along with so many others. You are my friend forever and that will never stop. I hope your family makes it though this month okay. I love you Brielle. I will continue to try to be a better person, but honestly, you were too much to follow. Me and the others will at least try to make you proud of us. (06/02/09)

just me thinking of you and your family always...whenever I get sad, I think of all the times you made me laugh, and I smile...I hope your family does the same...all my love..xoxo (06/17/09)

(Anon) WOW Bri I am the 9900 person on this site!! SOOOOOOO many people think about u. U have such an influence on everyone all the time. We think of u always and especially now. Pls make sure to be at graduation. to Bris family - pls know that the whole class has Bri with them always (06/18/09)

Aunt Candi I'd like to make a comment, all of you kids, I guess I can't call u kids anymore, can I, your young adults and I read all your comments about graduation and your thoughts about Brielle and your comments to her family and all I can say is thank you. It obviously is a hard time right now, but all of you are a pretty wonderful bunch of people. So I wish all of you a Happy Graduation and a happy and healthy future. B.M.N. 21 FOREVER ! (06/18/09)

Annon Brielle. Even though I only knew you by name and face from LHS, I still feel so saddened and touched by your story. I've talked to so many people (your friends and teachers) about you and who you were, and they all have the same thing to say: that you were as beautiful on the inside as you were on the outside. I wish that I had gotten the chance to get to know you, but I will forever carry your story with me in my heart and use it as a reminder of how important it is to appreciate life and those who you love. Rest in the sweetest peace. (06/26/09)

justme I hope you saw the graduation caps. Gianna gave hers to your Mom and Dad today. It's a hard hard time right now. I know you were there, please let everyone know how close you are to them. Amanda looks so good doesn't she? No one will ever stop missing you but they will never lose you Bri you truly do go with them wherever they travel. The most beautiful angel in the Lords universe (06/27/09)

(Anon) Its so hard right now. can u plssss let me know how u r? things are changing now and it makes me nervious and i miss u at these times. love u always (06/29/09)

anon Brielle- Everything said about you is really true. You are a CLASS act and none of us can be you. We will just try to be better for you. I know you wanted us to be more, yet you never expected -you waited patiently. I hope we can make you proud. Forever My Friend (06/02/09)

olivia i remember reading that in brielles journal. i remember that halloween and i remember that maze i remember that nets game we went to and i remember every day i spent with her. missing you bri, what i would give for us to be able to do one of those things again, love always, liv (06/02/09)

(Anon) yes, graduation is worthless without u here. I too hope your family makes it thru this ok. They should be proud that u are theirs. (06/03/09)

Class 2009 YOU ARE THE CLASS OF 2009 NOTHING ELSE MEANS ANYTHING YOU MADE LIFE A BETTER PLACE FOR THE WORLD B.M.N.21 FOREVERXOXOXOXO (06/08/09)

(Anon) I agree 100% B.M.N. 21 FOREVER (06/09/09)

(Anon) just got back from prom. missed u so much that it hurt but also we said that we felt u there with us. that was nice and then I felt so much better. (06/12/09)

Anon I never knew you, but your story has touched me. All I can think about is graduation and prom and all of the things you missed out on and how every person you knew will be thinking of you and missing you throughout all of it. These last few weeks must be the hardest on your family and I truly feel for them. I can't see how anyone could know your story and not appreciate life and everything in it. We take so much for granted. (06/16/09)

Anon To the Namer Family, As prom passed and graduation approaches, you are in my thought and prayers at this very difficult time. Brielle will NEVER be forgotten. I will always keep her and all of you in my prayers. (06/17/09)

(Anon) These deepened wounds don't heal so fast despite all the time that has past. Brielle, can't you see? You will alway live within me. Rest easy, baby<3 (05/05/09)

Gi In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky In my heart there will always be a place for you for all my life I'll keep a part of you with me And everywhere I am There you'll be... everytime i wanna see you i know i can just close my eyes hard and think back to you poking me in ms biems class... i guess sometimes we see more with our eyes closed.. (05/17/09)

AMANDA NAMER BRIELLE WROTE THIS IN OCTOBER THOUGHT YOU SHOULD ALL READ IT -- Today I want to tell you about my week. Halloween is coming soon. I am going to have to do some last minute shopping for my costume. I'm fiddling with chains trying to fit them in with the rest of my costume. My friends and I also want to go the maze. Dead ends, curves and corn. Its so dark you can't see a thing. You hear bugs and frogs in the background as you try to figure a way out. The next day I have to clean my closet. Its a jungle in there. There might even be an old sandwhich laying around for all I know. Mountains and mountains of old shirts. You sort of need a map to find things inside if you want a pair of pants to wear.Friday I am going to a nets game. I'm going to watch really tall men, run around and sweat. A lot of them have legs like a flamingo. They go to war on the court as if its life or death, but I dont get it, its just a game. They make millions for things that are just plain fun. They appear on shows like that 70's show and everyone is so surprised, so they are like what the hell? They get bumbs, bruises, and skinned knees, but they push through showing great strength. The weekend finally creeps up and its time to relax and sleep late. Its been raining a lot giving people good use of their wind shield wipers. Its like it raining men. But when the week is all said and do it will be nothing but a memory. It will just be like all my other weeks . A FEW LAUGHS AND DEFINETLY SOME FRIGHTENING THINGS. ITS LIFE AND YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO LIVE IT TO THE FULLEST. THOSE WERE HER WORDS DON'T FORGET THAT (05/22/09)

justme Bri you never cease to amaze me. thanks Amanda for sharing her words. I was generous and wonderful to hear from her. She was and is an inspiration to all. (05/27/09)

I dont know if everyone is invited or what but my family can donate $$ to this great cause. can someone let us know what to do and I will ask my mom to send a check or whatever is needed. THX and i am glad this is happening. (05/09/09)

Jamie Singer Brielle Morgan Namer, Wow- the long paragraph written on the right side of the website really and truly sums Brielle's life, strength, personality, and morals to a T. I really cannot believe its been over a year. I have a "Brielle" bracelet hanging on my mirror in my car, and a Wristband that says "21" on my gear shifter. I wear my new black bracelet and the green one everyday. I can still see the softball you hit flying out there. That home run was amazing. I remember my mouth dropped. What an athlete, student, friend, and overall person in general. Ya know they say, "NO ONE is perfect." But there's a first for everything because trust me, you were more than perfect. It is so mind boggling to see all these amazing comments written about you, some from people that didn't even know you or get the joy to experience the greatness of being your friend. I'll always remember homeroom in 7th grade with SHUE! We would always joke around with Shue about who knows what, we loved him! I have some pictures of us from birthday parties, and school, and I keep them in my room hanging up, and I look at smile at them everday. There truly is not a day that goes by that I do not think about you Bri. I know that your with me all the time. An event at the Divah Lounge is coming up in your honor, and I remember a little over a year ago when you were at the Divah Lounge with all of us celebrating and dancing the night away. You looked beautiful. To know you was to love you, That is your gift, to all you touched. Your loyalty, strength, courage, and compassion for life will forever be within me, engraved in my heart. I love you, Brielle. I miss you so much. *21* (04/26/09)

anonymous Brielle.... you don't know me but i have read so many wonderful things about you... you have honestly touched my heart with your good nature and loving qualities... i can see that you have touched so many people, of those of whom you knew and of those who never got the chance to meet you... i hope that one day we will get the opportunity to meet and we can talk about our long line of family history and how silly it was that we never got to meet each other because of it. we could have been great friends, i know that. it deeply saddens me that i only got to hear of you after you left this world... i wish we got the opportunity to meet before. i know one day we will. may you rest easy... and i cannot wait until the day where i get to meet you. R.I.P. Brielle. (04/28/09)

MOM I miss you more and more everyday. I am still waiting to wake up from this horrible nightmare. You have always been my sunshine, and you always will. All the time when I told you how proud of you I was for something that you did, you just said mom- like I said it because I had to because you are my baby. I hope as you read all the wonderful things that everyone has said about you, that once and for all you will believe me. I have no idea who, what or why, but Bri you were and always will be the most amazing person I have ever known. I just wish you would have given yourself some slack. Many people come and go, but you will ALWAYS be that special person to so very many. I truly am so touched by all the wonderful things that everyone has written, and want to say thank you. At least I know just not what I felt about her as a mom but what her friends also felt. It is beautiful. I know it is a rude thing to do, but I really have to say - BRIELLE was and will always be perfect. The mold was broken after her, and I don;t believe anyone could fill her shoes, as she was her worst critic. I love you baby. Vic is okay, I am doing my best with him. Stay safe, I'll see you soon. (04/29/09)

Big Sister To think this is a very bad April fools joke, but it isnt. I miss you so much and love you I lost so much weight and you would be so proud of me . Finally mommy and daddy are letting me get my boobs dont. You would love them I have my bday card where you say you want to touch them. I will definetly be by to let you see them. I miss you and love you soo much. Straight A's and B's this semester you would be so proud of me . I LOVE YOU BABY SISTER ALWAYS AND FOREVER MY BABY GIRL PS-- I AM GETTING A LITTLE TATTOO WITH OUT FAMILY INITIALS JABB I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER MY BABY SISTER (04/01/09)

dumpling i sit today and just think of you. this is the time of year i would call you and we would discuss our plans for the summer. as i counted down my days to see my best friend again. i still count down those day. the days i am the happiest are the days that i wake up from having you in my dreams the night before. its the worst feeling wanting to tell you so many things and having to hold my self back, because all i want to do is pick up my phone go to my contacts and look for "Hottie Brielle" and hit send. I remember when you put yourself in as that in my phone book. we were sitting together on the bus going to a Binghamton Mets game. i had my old school motarola and your background on your phone was your puppy. you always used to say how much you missed victor every summer. i know he misses you now. i miss you now. we all miss you now. you are beyond special bri, youre the best, my best. i talk about you a lot, i think my friends feel uncomfortable by it, but i cant stop. i love sharing our stories. like how you and leiter would make me stand in the soccer goal and kick the balls at my face... good times. haha but they were good times, they were the best times. moments ill always cherrish and never forget. Youre the best person i know. i just wish our time together wasnt so short. Your amazing Brielle Morgan Namer. I will love you forever! lovealways your bestie (04/29/09)

Candi I come everyday to check the blog, I check to see if there are any new postings and everytime I am blown away by what I read. To me Brielle is AMAZING, there are no words that can do her justice and trust me I try. Loving, Brave, Strong, Funny, Compassionate, I will run out of room before I can ever finish writing the adjectives that describe Brielle. The best thing about her is she is my niece, I am so lucky that I have 2 amazing girls that I can call my niece's. It's unreal to me that 1 person can have touched so many, but Brielle did, and does. 16 years old, such a short time, I have not touched or have done anything that will ever compare to Brielle in my 41 years here. The world we live in is messed up and has truly lost the most wonderful person in it. I miss you so much Brielle, there are just no words. I love you baby girl and I will forever, the world just makes no sense. You wonder how something like this could have happened, and there are just no answers and there will never be. I read the above message and I laugh & cry because I think of Victor who misses you so much, there is just no getting over you, your impact on this world on the people that still remain will never change, I just hope that we can be as strong as you but I doubt it. But we try hard everyday, it's just an impossible job to do. I LOVE you Bri bri every single day and that will never stop never ever. Love Auntie Candi (04/30/09)

ANON I Miss You. Love You Always. (04/03/09)

miss you up can't sleep thinking of you wish i can wake up from this bad dream xoxoxoxo (04/04/09)

ANON I think about you all the time. It is so hard to face day after day without you. life really stinks. This is so unfair. Best friends forever. (04/07/09)

justme There is still magic in the air around you Brielle. Isn't it amazing the things that are happening? People who didn't even know you are making sure things get done. I guess you are making friends in heaven. I know you met Ashley thanks for helping out. The signs are everywhere, butterflies and 21's seem to appear out of thin air but we know it's you. Take care of Mom, Dad and Amanda. They struggle without you. Let them know you're here, whisper in their ears they'll be listening for you. (04/08/09)

If this world had more people like you it would be a much better place. i love and miss you Brielle. you are such an inspiration to everyone and you are truly missed. to the Namer family. you raised the most incredible daughter in the world. the amount of lives she touched will never truly be known. i know i cant say anything to comfort you and I know that you know how special she is but i want you to know how much i miss her.

just me Brielle, Most people never have the opportunity to see an angel, to know they exist and walk among us. We few have not only seen an angel, but been so blessed as to call her our friend. Rest easy Brielle. (03/03/09)

AS Brielle, I dont know what I believe in anymore but I know that I believe in you. I think about you everyday and while trying to figure out why you are not here anymore I find myself believing in angels, believing that someway somehow you are able to see everyone and watch over amanda, your mom and your dad. I hope you realize while watching over all of us how much you are missed. I try to place together the pieces of our childhood and I hang to those vivid memories, I can still hear you screaming amanda and the way you said her name, I remember how it felt to hold your hand. I will hang on to these memories in hopes that you remember them too and that you will remain strong becuase you are beautiful, amazing, and so grealy missed by everyone. please keep shining to me you are the brightest star everynight. (03/04/09)

Mrs. Decker Not a day goes by that I do not think of Brielle and her family. I will never forget the way that she could make us all smile, her love to laugh and her effortless ability to make all those around her feel comfortable and proud to know her. I still think about conversations that we had and laughs that we shared; I treasure those memories. (03/04/09)

MOMMY Today is one year. It has been the longest, fastest most horrible year ever. I am so honored that so many love Brielle as we do. I have always been so proud of her and everyone's love for her just really tells me that I am not the only one who knew how truly special she is. I LOVE you my baby. (03/05/09)

just me Dear Brielle, Remembering you and praying that somehow your family finds the peace and strength that you would want that for them. So sad are we all , now that you're gone. You will always be loved, and your spirit is here, your legacy though short - lives strong among your friends - in the halls and on the fields and in the hearts of the community. Missing you always..... Angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone. ~George Elliot (03/05/09)

ds brielle, you are beyond loved by everyone. you are missed every single day. i don't know one person that doesn't think about you more than once a day. you are so missed and its hard, but i know you are smiling down upon us. (03/05/09)

[Anon] Today marks one whole, entire year that you left us ;[ It just seems so unreal that you are not here anymore, and even after one whole year, I still can't make sense of it all and why you aren't here savoring every moment of life. I question that pretty much everyday. There is never a day that you are not on my mind. I think of you constantly, and you are always here with me in everything that I do. I pray with all of my heart that your family is doing well and that the days are getting easier for them. You are so loved and so missed, Bri! There is a piece of you in each and every person that you touched and in each and every person that had the honor to have had you in there lives, even if it were just for a few short moments. Rest easy and continue to shine your beautiful face through the sun -- we love you always<3 (03/05/09)

(Anon) Brielle, today marks 1 year that you have left us. Though I know you are physically gone I feel as if you're with me every single day. As I walk down the halls of the high school I know that you are walking beside us and making sure we are all ok. There is not a day that goes by in which i don't think about you. I think about how beautiful, kind, funny and talented you were. I would also like to tell the Namer family that I pray for you every day and you are always in my heart. And remember though she is not physicallywith you, she walks beside you everyday. <3 always in my heart <3 (03/05/09)

(Anon) Todays 1 year...i didnt know you but i think about u everyday ...i wish i knew you...i couldnt go tonight cuz im not feelin well and i have too much work but if i was able too i wouldve been there....i miss you and watch over everyone...everyone misses you like crazy....rest in peace brielle <3 BMN <3 21 <3 (03/05/09)

School isn't the same without you, but I am proud to have called you my friend. RIP, you will never be forgotten.. .. Mr. and Mrs. Namer and Amanda, you should be very proud <3 (03/05/09)

(Anon) everyone above wrote what i wanted to say. U r magnificent. Mr and Mrs Namer and Amanda, u are related to a person who made such a difference in our lives. U all r special people. (03/05/09)

(Anon) Tonight’s gathering was just beautiful! Brielle has touched so many lives and will forever live on in our hearts! My heart pours out to her family! (03/05/09)

Amanda's Aunt I saw posts on 2 of my friend's Facebook Walls regarding attending something for "Brielle" Curiosity brought me to a page of pictures and a blog, all bearing tribute to a beautiful young woman named Brielle. My deepest condolences extend to her family and friends. She must have been quite a wonderful person ! The reason for my post: I stepped outside this evening, just a few moments ago. I have a habit of looking up to the night sky. I looked in disbelief, and then looked again to be sure what I was seeing: There, to the right of the moon, clear as could be were clouds formed into only two numbers! The one nearest the moon seemed to half-encircle it in it's bend. It formed the number 2....the next, to the right of it..was the number 1 ! Twenty-one..clear as the nose on my face! I remembered what I had read of the many gatherings planned to remember Brielle, and of reading of her # , 21. Sometimes, there are little things...signs, if you will, and they are meant for someone to "catch" a glimpse. Having just clicked onto this page last night, perhaps it was for me to see , and pass along. Perhaps Brielle found a way to say thank you, and let you all know that she is still very near. I know some things tend to be apart from logic, yet it has long been these very little things that have a way of presenting themselves. We need just to catch them. Amanda D will tell you of balloons and her Grandmother... (03/06/09)

(Anon) HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRI BRI!!! xoxoxoxoxo (03/08/09)

(Anon) Dear Namers, luv u and think of u today. i am pretty sure nothing i say will make today much better but i did notice that there were almost 9000 hits on this website. that is a LOT of hits. ppl thought of bri 9000 times over 365 days. that shuld say something about BRi to u on this crazy hard day. (03/08/09)

just me remembering Brielle.... to all who love Brielle and want to honor her.........Do not make grief your companion, or let it own your thoughts of Brielle. Do not link yourselves to her with common suffering, make your bond instead, her courage and her grace and her passion for life. Count yourselves grateful to have known her, grateful for what she shared with you, grateful to tell her story from your heart. Celebrate her life, so that her message and her mark on you, and this community is never lost. Honor her by being a witness to her exquisite life. (03/08/09)

me Happy Birthday Bri - I can't believe it's been a year. It confuses me that someone who made others so happy, can make them so sad at the same time. I don't think it's sadness (because I know you don't want people to be unhappy), I think it's just an empty feeling of missing you. I miss you, and think of you all the time. I think and worry about your family constantly, and I hope they know that even though you are not physically here to support them, that your strength combined with theirs, pulls them through. I truly care about your family, and wish that they find peace in all of this. I hope you are happy, safe, and smiling, because what more can we ask for. Shine down on us forever...xoxoxo (03/08/09)

Gianna Bri happy birthday i love you so much Brielle is engraved in my heart and continues to inspire me everyday. She was confident in her ability to fight always exhibing notable certitude. Bri kept us up to date, never sparing details, un-flagged in her efforts to make cancer an approachable conversation. She endured chemo therapy with extreme fortitude, handling it as a stepping stone to victory. Brielle was perfect. She was flawlessly beautiful, selfless, compassionate, dedicated to school, and was a superior athlete. Although she never asked for the spotlight, it always found her. I always thought she was so blessed and so lucky. But now I realize we were the lucky ones. We are lucky to have our memories and unique stories of how Brielle touched our lives. Bri showed us that it does not matter how many years in life we have, but what matters is the life in our years. Now, Brielle is alive in us. We all have a part of her and everyday we can embrace "The Brielle" in ourselves. I will honor Brielle by truly living each and every day and never taking life for granted. I know I am, and I'm sure most of us, are better people because of Brielle. The lessons and inspiration Bri has left me with will be inculcated within me. Wherever we go we take a piece of you Brielle. Not only are we blessed to have an angel watching over us, but we are exceptionally lucky to have known an angel. I hope everyone can LIVE the way Brielle did and let her come alive through us... today isn't a time to be overwhelmed with saddness, but more of a time to make her proud and never waste a moment we could be smiling.

Brielle @ 09:40 AM   Add Comment

(Anon) I dont know how any of us r going on w/out the most amazing, special kind and sweet person around. It comes in waves. To the Namer family - this is inconceivable. I am so sory. (02/02/09)

(Anon) hi brielle.. i keep thinking about you and i cant stop. i really wish i could figure out the reason why youre not here anymore. it just doesnt seem fair that you were taken from everyone so soon. i try to think of you whenever i take something for granted or get upset. i try to be a good person and live well for you, and remember how gracefully you carried yourself. i cant believe its been so many months already. everyone misses you so, so much. xoxo (02/02/09)

(Anon) Brielle was PERFECT. I am in school now killing time and I went on your website and looked at your pics and u are the most beautiful and warm and loving person ever. it is hard to really have it sink in that u arent here now and i will go back to class and u wont be there. i know lots of ppl say the same thing but I will say it too that there must be something wrong in the world when someone as strong and smart and lovely as u are taken away from the ppl who love u and NEED (really need) to hear u and touch u and hug u. it physically hurts me and i feel like screaming now loud that u need to be here but i know that wont help. i wont get used to this ever and i dont know what to do with this and how to help the namer family get over this tragedy. (02/03/09)

(Anon) Its just so surreal to believe or even fathom that next month will mark a whole, miserable year that you have not been with us.. It never gets easier, and I just pray with all of my heart that your family is doing well and that they feel your presence all around them. Rest easy, pretty girl! (02/04/09)

I Love You Bri Bri 11 Months, so hard to believe, 11 months, without you, impossible. Brielle you are the strength that kept us going through everything, you are just such an amazing person that mere words cannot do you justice. You are the most amazing person that I have ever met in my life. I can't tell you how much I miss and love you. I just miss u sooooooooooooo much you have no idea.... I love you my beautiful baby girl (02/05/09)

ANON Just wanted you to know how much I miss you. Your smile, kind words, etc... Life stinks without you in it. love you forever, and so will many others. (02/07/09)

(Anon) February and March are going to be so hard. It feels like such bad anticipation. I keep the Namer family in my heart always. (02/07/09)

A M A N D A * N A M E R I miss you so much baby...We are all hanging in there for you.. I LOVE YOU STAY STRONG XOXOX From the time that we were little, I knew you’d always be Not just a loving sister But a caring friend to me. A shoulder I could cry on, a helping hand in times of need, a cheerleader to lift me up, my angel in both word and deed. We told each other secret; we giggled and we cried. We shared our joys and sorrows--&#8232; We were always side-by-side. We have a very special bond; I knew it from the start. You’ll have my love forever--&#8232; We’re sisters, heart to heart (02/08/09)

AMANDA PAIGE NAMER I Miss You BABY-- When I layed there beside you, Could you feel me there? My arms were wrapped around you, And I was stroking your hair. I was talking about all the good times, For me they were every single day. I wanted you to feel love and comfort, And happy in some way. I watched your every breath, And prayed that each one wasn't your last. The time we got to share together, Went by too quick...Too fast. I wanted you to wake up, Please BRIELLE...Open your eyes. Tell me this is a nightmare, And not our goodbyes. As your last breath grew closer, We layed there peacefully together. My heart continually breaking, Because I wanted you forever. Then there it was, Your final breath of air. I didnt want to believe it, This is so cruel and not fair. I held your beautiful face, And prayed you'd breath again. I wasn't ready for you to go, I couldn't admit that this was the end. But then I realised that you were now in peace, And not suffering anymore. You were beggining the life of an Angel, And your body would no loner be sore. I held you close and squeezed you tight, And tried to say goodbye. I've lost my SISTER and my number one best friend, All my heart could do is cry. I slowly got up, I wanted so much to stay. I leaned over and gave you one more kiss, It was so hard to walk away. My SISTER is my entire world, And I miss you so very much. I wish I could feel your loveable cuddle, And your soft and gentle touch. But for now I have to wait, Until we meet again. You will always be in my heart and thoughts, My dear SISTER and best friend. Always and Forever, Our hearts will always touch. Always and Forever, Your baby girl loves you so much. (02/08/09)

(Anon) Amanda honey, Brielle started her new life as an angel right there in your arms - but she lives on here with all of us forever. I will never forget her. no one will. She lives on earth forever. And I cant listen to sad songs anymore b/c I think of her right away and start to cry b/c I miss her so much and she was the best person anywhere and so r u. i wihs i could make u feel better (02/11/09)

COLUMBIA Stevana Sims (Columbia Senior High) wrote at 9:32pm yesterday Hi, I am a member of the CHS girls basketball team, and on behalf of the team we would like to honor Brielle in every game we play. As Lady Cougars we got wristbands tonight in honor of Brielle. We all wear them proudly and carry them as our good luck charm. Brielle is missed greatly by her teammates and others who hardly knew her. Her death will not be in vain. Sincerely, Stevana Sims Report (02/13/09)

APN Happy Valentines Dayyyyy. Love U (02/14/09)

(Anon) miss u soooo much bri I can't even explain...hope you had a good valentines day (02/17/09)

(Anon) Hey baby, right now at this moment i miss u so much that my body hurts. Luv u forever & ever & ever. (02/17/09)

(Anon) "Have no fear in your heart though you feel you've been broken and lost. There's a place where we will meet up again. There's a place that mends your hurt and takes you in. There are times faced alone when you find all the holes in yourself. You don't have to walk the night on your own. I will say a prayer for you to lead you on, I will say a prayer for you when you have gone ." (02/18/09)

Dear Namers, I know the pain of loss, and seeing your precious daughter and having been privileged enough to have known her at one point (camp), I fully understand and empathize with your devastation. I don't really know that there is any way to ever get over losing someone that is not only a "part" of you, but at least half of your entire world (as both Brielle and Amanda are both blessed to have parents whose hearts are dedicated solely to them). What I can offer is this; As much as I've suffered over the loss of the person I never thought I could live without, I've come to realize that to not have ever had them in my life would have been unfathomable-for they have helped to make me who I am today. Even if that means being a little bit more sensitive when seeing another parent on the news who has lost a child, or allowing myself just to feel sorrow for the human condition, and that the world has been ripped off because these amazing people, particularly Brielle, are no longer a tangible part of our world. I fully believe, however, that while our bodies might fail us, our spirits remain as lively as we allowed them to be while "fully charged" and that Brielle was never one to half-ass anything so I bet she's leading the "Angels to Save the World Coalition" or something along those lines. And, in fact, I'm not really "sorry" for you because you've lost Brielle; I'm sorry that I wasn't lucky enough to have her as part of my life for more than eight weeks. My prayers are with you. (02/18/09)

just me A year ago this week was the last time I saw you - brave - graceful- and as always thinking of others. Your unique ability to find something positive in everything. Your affection for everyone who loved you that brought you to me on painful legs but with a smile on your face. You talked about being in the sun and I know that's where you are now - an angel in the sun. Resting just isn't your style so I'm certain you are God's busiest angel. I remember you with joy and love and admiration. Stay close - everyone needs to feel your whispers. (02/19/09)

ANON Just wanted to let you know how much I miss you. Don't know what to do anymore. You are the best part of my life and the hole grows so big everyday. Be happy and free. I love you always. (02/19/09)

(Anon) I like what you said "Gods busiest angel". That is SO BRIELLE! She is so adorable and always - always - thought of others and this whole month is going to be torture. Every minute now I think of last year at this time. Every morning I wake up and remember that today is another day that I can only imagine holding and hugging Bri. I know others wrote the same thing but its true - its so hard every morning to relize that today is once again not the day I will hug my Bri. And also that no matter how much I want to make this happen - it wont. Every day... (02/19/09)

Gi the other day at work there was this girl who came to a gymnastics party for her little twin sisters at 9-10:30, the big sister was dressed in bright tye-dye shirt.. but then they all stayed and i found out the big sister was having her birthday party for rocking climbing from 11-12:30.. so she was there a long time walking around in her tye dye shirt makin me think of you everytime i caught a glimpse of her.. her name was Brielle.. it was crazy. sometimes i'll have a girl named brielle in a party and just want to cry and other days it lifts me up so much. its just hard somedays.. yesterday at tumbling this girl i just met was telling me how her best friend has cancer.. and how he wasnt suppose to live through the night.. but he did.. things like that break my heart and make me mad the world isnt fair fairness obviously doesn't control life and death, if it did no great person would die young. i just miss you a lot. theres nothing thats good enough to justify why your gone or to bring me peace about it. all i can say is that i see the signs and feel your spirit and know your here. i believe that angels breathe... keep smiling up there<3 i love you. (02/20/09)

(Anon) ARRGGG I MISSS UUUU (02/21/09)

Coach Johanna Wright Those who can...teach. Those who care...teach. To teach is to impart knowledge or skill; to cause to learn by example or experience. Day in and day out, Brielle dedicated herself to imparting knowledge and skill. She caused us all to learn by her example and experience. A. Stevenson said..."It's not the years in a life that count; it is the life in the years." Brielle filled her years with "LIFE" ! To the family I'd like to say that Brielle was...is and will always be a "DIAMOND IN A SEA OF GLASS." We here at Columbia HS will always remember Brielle...she was our light! Her dignity, and desire for something better has inspired all of us to live each day as if it were our last. We are reminded of her everyday when we look at the banner which is displayed in her honor. The Livingston community I know is very proud as are we of her spirit and humanity. Her number 21 was retired this season in her honor without question or debate. We are all blessed to have known her. Thank you for sharing your daughter with us. (02/21/09)

(Anon) miss you too much....you were an amazing girl and it is horrible you couldn't be here longer (02/23/09)

justme please livingston lets get it together as a group. How can Brielle's number be retired by another town but not by ours? SENIORS CLASS of '09 get organized and get tough lets honor our angel right here at home. (02/24/09)

09this time we have a few days in a row when the other grades are testing we have to let the school know how we feel about this. (02/24/09)

anon lets do this for Brielle its up to us (02/24/09)

LHS alum The class of 2009 and all of LHS should organize peacefully at the oval and ask the administration once again to retire the # 21 jersey - never to be worn again. I would contact the media and sports illustrated etc... You have a great cause and if you do this peacefully and with respect they (the administation) will see how much it means to you all. god bless you all and god bless BN. (02/24/09)

retire21 maybe a petition? Can we get it organized on line? we have to stick together and do it for Bri (02/24/09)

me alum is right when can we do this? not a sad night but a night to do whats right. thanks for caring alum Bri we miss you but we don't forget you. (02/24/09)

we care you were a special kid brielle, you will be sorely missed. Your genuine kindness and sweet nature comforted all of those around you. You truly were one of a kind, compatible and comfortable with anyone. The world needs more people like you and its unfortunate you were taken away from us so early. In your time here you did more than many ever achieve in a lifetime. Keep smiling up in heaven watching over all the people who love and miss you. RIP bri only the good die young (02/24/09)

CLASS 09 Class of o9 stop talking and make it happen for your friend Brielle you no she would me leading the pack for you (02/24/09)

ANON can we please do this? we need someone to get us organized . we shouldn't take no for an answer. make signs, wear shirts RETIRE 21 (02/25/09)

(Anon) I miss you terribly, Brielle, and it hurts so bad... (01/16/09)

justme I made a promise and I am going to keep it. You will never be forgotten here, where you grew and laughed and amazed so many. Did you see the sign in Maplewood? Did you see the wrestlers headgear? You're everywhere because you touched their hearts. (01/16/09)

(Anon) i think about u everyday...and that will never change....miss u veryy much and i will never forget u (01/16/09)

(Anon) this is ridiculous that you arent here now. (01/22/09)

dumpling Hey bri bri, i was smiling the other day cause it felt like you were with me. like you were walking next to me. i think about you ALL the time. i have so many things that i wish i could tell you and there are so many things that i wish we were facing together. i think your kindness has come out in a lot of things that i do. i wish you would visit me in my dreams more often. i miss you sooo much!!! its hard when things come up that i would do with you, or talk to you about. its even harder when i read those jeans everyday and look at your photo everyday wishing you were here... wishing i could just pick up the phone and call you and tell you how much i miss you and how much i love you. you mean the world to me bri bir and your pictures arent enough anymore. i need you! come visit me and show me that your here always. love you forever (01/22/09)

lauren bri i think of you everyday.. i miss you so much. we're throwing a huge party in your honor next month and i can't wait to raise as much money as possible for your cause.. i love you baby :*) (01/23/09)

a i miss you and i love you (01/23/09)

love you<3 "May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face and may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars" (01/23/09)

ANON Hey Brille- I miss you so much. I never knew anything that could cause this much pain. I know that you are here with us, and I just wanted to remind you how truly special you are. No one will or can ever stop thinking about you. It was unbelievable the fantastic sign that Columbia put up at the game in your honor. That is really something. I really know that if it were someonr elsee there would be no sign. This is just another example of how special you are and how you have touched so many, and made others become better then they were.I cannot tell you how honored I am to call you my friend, and I am so grateful to know you. I love you very much, and I miss you so much. Life just doesn't make sense. Never let that beautiful smile leave your face. So many of us have so much to do, if we want to try and come close to the person you are. I can't believe how much you gave to everyone in such a short time. We have alot of ground to cover. I know it is impossible to be you, but we all just want to have so many of the great qualities you have. We try every day, and I hope you are proud. Forever, and always. (01/24/09)

DAD Its 2009 See you in my dreams I LOVE YOU DADDY XOXOXO (01/01/09)

(Anon) To Whoever wrote the above message, I try and think of how to say the things I want on here, but don't really do that good a job of it. But what you said, was written so well and that's exactly how I feel as well. So thank you for finding the correct words. Brielle, I love u and will forever! (01/25/09)

(Anon) I miss you so much that it hurts, Bri :( I've been so miserable these past 2 weeks, and I was sitting here tonight looking at your pictures and it made me feel a little better. Visit me in my dreams tonight, Bri :) I love you more than you'll ever know!! (01/29/09)

justme Did you see the mural? Remembered forever...always in our hearts... everywhere we go. (01/30/09)

ANON Hey Brielle, Just wanted to let you know once again how much I mis and love you. Sounds stupid, but believe it or not- you always make me feel better. I finally figured it out. It is just the way you are. Even if we didn't agree, I always could hear your voice in the back of my head. Hae to admit it- you weren't right all the time, but about 99% of the time you were. I miss the voice. It is sucha horrible thing to say, but I really want you to know how much life stinks without you. As you know there are other people to talk to, but you were always straight and honest even if I didn't want to hear it. I know I sound pathetic, but our friendship will always be it for me. You will always be my best friend. I hate what has happened, and I am really miserable without you. I always thought it got hard when you were old like our parens, but now I know what HARD is. Whoever thought you could love someone so much that without them you are lost. I do many stupid things, and I know how pissed you would be. I try to be like you, but I don't think there is anyone or tha there will ever be anyone who can fill your shoes. I wish I let you know all this before, not now. The best years of my life are over. I will neve have such happiness as when I had you as my friend. I am so miserable. I just want you to come back. I can't even imagine how your parents and Amanda go on without you. Everyone who knew you knew how much you all really loved and respected and most of all liked each other. Usually that is only for the nerds, but you were different. That's why me and everybody else cannot go a day without you and be sad. So many need you always gave to us all. I LOVE YOU FOREVER. I hope tomorrow will be better, but I know it won't. You are always with me. (01/30/09)

Me I Love you Brielle (12/02/08)

ashley heyy brielle i havent blogged in awile but you were an amzing person and will always be loved. I hope your family can get by without you. You were amazing at everything and life in general you will never be forgotten and i love you vey much<3 (12/07/08)

(Anon) Hey Bri, 9 months, whoever wrote that the time goes by so quickly yet each day drags on forever is so right. 9 months without you, crazy!. After all this I don't know anything, the world just got turned upside down and does not make any sense any longer. The 1 thing I know for sure is That You know I love you, and I know that you love me. Other then that, nothing. Nothing else makes 1 lick of sense to me. I miss you with every fiber in my being. Before and now, for I will not say that your gone, you touch, and inspire people to such a degree that it is amazing. I will never say that your gone because you are in my heart & soul and will be there till the day I die and after!. I love you so much it hurts! I just wish you were here with us so badly, I love you baby girl, forever. (12/08/08)

justme Bri, thanks for coming to the stadium. Zach ran out with the hammer high in the air could you see your # on it? 21 nothing at half time we all thought of you . We know you helped us get here Bri we can still feel you here everywhere. We miss you so much but we keep you inside us every single day Bri ------ the bad ones are worse without you and the good ones will always be missing you. Thanks for staying close and being the angel of '09 (12/08/08)

(Anon) i see everyone else wrote to u already; u did such a great job for us - togehter we r a great team! u r the bestest and I am sending u some hugs now. it was great seeing u there at the stadium (12/08/08)

THIS WAS FOR BRIELLE Livingston, here's why. Go back and look at the summer and pre-season predictions not even a thought Livingston has never had a state champion that alone makes it big They lost their QB during what was probably one of the best high school games of the season and with the QB out in the 2nd lose by 1 point in overtime.... 1st loss of the year (west Morris Central) Next they play Rox. and get picked apart, a team in shambles really Then Gary Stetz pulls it together and with the team reorganized behind McGehee, Joe Grande and a fantastic O line they win a game the story continues when 2 huge players go out for the Seton Hall game 36 (McGehee) and 2 (Lomita) can't play QB still out and results in a shut out disaster. EVERYONE has them dead in the water but wait............. Here come Soph. Nicky Grande, Joe's younger brother who didn"t play the WHOLE season due to injury comes in as QB in 2 HUGE games and the Lancer's get to the FINALS The Cinderella story continues when Mike Gen comes back for the final game He's not 100% but the spirit of this team is lifted Let's not leave out of the story the #21 on every helmet and on the Lancer "Hammer" and run through signs it honors their missing classmate Brielle Namer .Every student in this school and every kid on this team felt her spirit with them this season but never more than when the half time score was 21 zip. Special is not the right word for what happened in Livingston, maybe magical. I don't know, but I do know this the story of the year comes from right here.................................GO LANCER'S Inappropriate? Alert us. Post a comment (12/09/08)

(Anon) U R Right - I forgot half time was a cool 21-0!!! OMG!! No coincidence for sure. U WERE THERE and I felt u but now i know for sure. love uuuu (12/09/08)

A FRIEND The legacy of Brielle Namer and the team hammer sets them apart. I remember Zach McGehee standing on the football field in the pouring rain last March reading a poem for his friend. It is hard to understand the impact unless you live here . They overcame everything and they are true champions (12/09/08)

Unknown hey bri. wish you could've been with us saturday. as a player it was just a truely amazing moment in my life and we all played for you and the town. I know you were watching and gave us good luck the whole game. we all felt a lot of pressure not to let the town and especially you down and luckily we won. #21 forever (12/09/08)

(Anon) things feel different since the game I think it is because obviously u were there with us so now we know u r around. i think other ppl know what I mean because it was like a sign that u r still here (12/10/08)

(Anon) I have a comment for the person that wrote if his last comment "Go lancers" was innapproate or not. My response is, NO. But not for the reason that you might think. All of you, Brielle's friends, classmates, just everyone that loves her. You are all just amazing, you keep her here with us. 1 thing you must all do is make sure she will never ever be forgotten, for that cannot happen and will not happen. Brielle is just a very special person, that touched so many. So many it's hard to believe. Just never forget the impact that she had on you and in your life, for that is a must. She is so special and she will be with us forever!!!! (12/10/08)

DAD Bri you are a specail person that everyone who new you and even the people who don't, and only know you from the great stories that friends and family tell about you will keep you alive in everyones hearts forever so remember everyone keep telling those great stores of Bri i do and for that stort moment it might make you smile like she always made everyone smile :) I LOVE YOU FOREVER DADDY XOXOXO (12/03/08)

justme the following comments appear on Ironhillssports.com they were posted in response to the question; what was the best story of 2008. Likewise the other 2 posts about the season, the game and Brielle. That's why it says Go Lancers at the end of the post here are the other comments 1 Livingston has to be the story of the year. The team, the experts, the injuries, the hero's (too many to name) the comeback, and the 1st title ever. All you need to do is read BrielleMNamer.com to see the impact one young life has had on this group. Bittersweet, and truly the best victory of the year. 2 I invite all of you to visit the website for Livingston's Brielle Namer and then tell me this is not tof the year. www.BrielleMNamer.com I think the Freehold story is wonderful and scary all at the same time. The Qb got his dream back., found a new team and won the big game. No one complains here about injuries or tough breaks. They learned a painful lesson about how short life can be and how quickly your perspective can change. They try with all they have to honor their friend by living well and setting the same example for others that she set for them. These kids lost their innocence when tragedy came through the front door of our High School. But they also learned about incredible courage, selflessness and grace. 3 The story of Brielle Namer and her impact of this Lancer team will remain a part of their victory and history forever. Yesterday Livingston's Zack Lomita was named Iron Hills Spotrs Player of the week. (see link) In his interview he explains the #21 on the helmets. The power of remembrance and inspiration put the Lancer's over the top. Nothing could stand in their way. (12/11/08)

correction the story comments can be found on nj.com under the high school sports heading follow the link for football best story 2008 (12/11/08)

its been a while Been a while since I've been on here. Wish you could see what people are writing I love u babyyy (12/11/08)

(Anon) To Just Me, What you wrote was beautiful, I had to post to let you know that! Brielle Always n Forever # 21 (12/11/08)

(Anon) Posted by chadsdad on 12/11/08 at 4:21PM I say it's the Lancer's I understand the Freehold story and it really is a made for TV special. But the Livingston story is about not just the whole team, but the senior class and in part the whole community. It has everything. Being the Underdog, unlikely hero's, Sammy shalom, Nicky Grande, Gary Stetz, Injury, defeat, NO EGO'S and above all, inspiration and Victory. I am from West Orange but I know a lot about what this town lost when they lost Brielle Namer and these kids needed this and wanted this and believed in this championship because they really do believe she's still with them. It's not easy for 17 year old boys to wear their hearts on their sleeves . This group really did become young men when they stood tall , hammer in the air, and gave their peers a season to remember. (12/11/08)

TRUE FRIENDS The story of Brielle Namer and her impact of this Lancer team will remain a part of their victory and history forever. Yesterday Livingston's Zack Lomita was named Iron Hills Player of the week. (see link) In his interview he explains the #21 on the helmets. The power of remembrance and inspiration put the Lancer's over the top. Nothing could stand in their way. 21 was Brielle's sports number (12/11/08)

(Anon) Its so obvious that Brielle is still with us all the time and in our hearts and lives. its hard to wake up without her to talk to but recently it seems that she really is with us so much. its nice. Good night bri bri (12/13/08)

justme Bri I hope you saw the tribune. It was so nice to see the paper acknowledge all that you represent. Courage, kindness, spirit, academics, inspiration and above all a reason to live better lives and to enjoy every moment. The new gym opens soon hope you'll be there watching over us. I hear the boys basketball team might be pretty good. Can you believe it? We miss you so much but knowing you're close really is helping. (12/13/08)

afriend hey bribri so i went to the game and when i had to leave for my show the score was 21-0 and than when i was walking out number 21 on the other team scored a touchdown... i kno it was you telling me i needed to go do what i loved to do at the show that night. thanks for making everything work out yet again. i miss you more than you can imagine (12/13/08)

(Anon) I dont want another day w/out being able to give u a hug or see u in class. Each day begins with the pain of remembering u wont be in school. It take so long to get it together and make it thru one more day. (12/14/08)

(Anon) I am just pretty much in love with the Namer family and it hurts so much to know that they are going through such tough times and that they are missing such a huge part of their family. You really are such a special person, Bri. We miss you so much it hurts, babe (12/05/08)

(Anon) and i miss u. more than anything. (12/16/08)

(Anon) Luv u baby bri bri (11/05/08)

My Bri Bri 8 months, seems so unreal. 1 way it seems like yesterday and in another seems like forever. I can tell you this, you definitely had no idea of the impact that you had in this world, no idea what so ever. You touched so so many people, and how did you do this. Just by being the amazing, incredible person you are. There truly is not another person in this world like you. I know I've let you down because I'm not as strong as you are, and for that I apologize. But I can't help it. It's just impossible being here without you. We are all trying so hard, but babygirl, it's, it's impossible. We're trying, cause we have to, no choice here. So please try to understand and not be mad at me because I'm doing such a lousy job of it. I just never imagined a world without you in it, and I'm right, there should never have been a world without you. You are what holds us together, you are the love that surrounds us. To put it simply, You are You. The most amazing, brave, funny, courageous and dignified person that I have ever met in my life. Why this terrible tragedy happened to you, for that there will never be an answer, never. So just know babygirl that there is never a day or a minute or a second that you are not in my heart and soul. I think of you always. For you will always be with me, always. I will love you forever. I'm just so, so sorry that this did happen to you, because you sure as heck did not deserve it, not any of it. I will love you forever and ever XXX OOO (11/05/08)

APN Its hard living with out you (11/05/08)

(Anon) I second everything in the comment above - Brielle is an amazing person and has changed my world forever. I hope everyone will understand what I am trying to say when I say that I am, and will be, always a different and better person because of her. There is no one like her. I am sorry she is not here right now but her influence on me will always remain. (11/07/08)

Pray, not that things will get easier, but that you will get stronger. (11/08/08)

(Anon) hey bri bri baby - good morning and i luv u so much. xoxoxo honey (11/09/08)

me I think about Brielle and the Namers often, and last night, Brielle was in my dream clear as anything. She was back with us, just visiting. I drove her over to everyone's houses, it was as if she was just checking in. She looked great, smiling, laughing, giving hugs and totally ok. She knew how much we all miss her and think about her. It was the strangest thing, but it felt totally real. Just wanted to say that you are always on my mind. Miss your emails, texts, calls and you... (11/09/08)

11/09/2008: I really just do not understand how life works. There are so many evil and vile people on this earth, and not enough good people because God is just taking them all away from us... Sometime between yesterday and today, a girl named Caiti Brown died. She suffered for 4 with bone cancer. She was 18 years old. It makes me so upset and sad to hear things such as this because like Brielle, she was so young and full of life and so strong. Young people are not suppose to die. Its not suppose to happen. Mothers and Fathers should never have to bury their babies. My heart just breaks in two for the family of Caiti Brown and the Namers. There is literally not one single day that I do not think of the Namers, and I just sincerely hope and pray every night that they get stronger and that everything is alright. As for Brielle, you are always with me. I carry a piece of you in my heart forever. No matter how much time passes by, I will always think of you and I will always tell people about that one girl who shined so bright in my life and who always will. I wish you were still here, babygirl. Please keep shining that beautiful smile of yours through the sun! We all love you beyond words and belief, Brielle. (11/09/08)

(Anon) Brielle I miss you so much. You're amazing in everyway and not a day goes by where I don't think about you. You are an inspiration to all and will always be remmembered. Rest in peace love, we all miss and love you. (11/09/08)

just me Brielle I'm trying to help your parents. I don't know what else to do for them. Send them a sign let them know they can never really lose you. They are so brave and Amanda she's just lost and wounded. I know where you are ... Let them know ...please in some way so they can have faith again. People question God but I'm sure you know now that God doesn't make people sick. He never promised an easy life. His promise is a place to go. Paradise, heaven, eternal life... that's the reward. They will always miss you but maybe if they knew for certain about heaven they could find some peace. The whole town weeps for you. You will NEVER be forgotten here. That's my promise. I'm working hard to keep my word. We keep you in our hearts always. (11/09/08)

(Anon) Miss you like crazy. (11/02/08)

(Anon) Hey bri bri baby; in school now haha and thinking of u here. I can see u in the room :-). luv u (11/11/08)

missing you hi bri bri we have bball meeting friday and everything just seems out of place and not right without you here with us everything from walking in the halls and seeing anything tie dye just seems empty and meaningless how could this happen? i miss you so much p.s. we have a meeting with our new coach on friday ill tell you about how it goes bri bri its just not going to be the same without you (11/11/08)

Amanda Namer Not being rude no one cares about Caitie Brown just my sister so don't write about other girls on her page its rude and disgusting (11/12/08)

(Anon) Amanda, What you just wrote was rude and disgusting! (11/12/08)

Brandi- Brielle's Mom I know and truly appreciate that everyone writes on this site to express themselves. It truly touches me deeply to read it, and see what wonderful things everyone writes about Brielle. As a parent you can not imagine how it makes me feel to know that she has touched soo many and that she is not forgotten. She is and will always be the center of our hearts and life for our family. I also want everyone to know that Amanda is not being cruel or hurtful. She has suffered a loss that I wish upon no one, and she is very protective about anything and everything that has to do with Brielle. She considers this a special place where people write about her baby sister and feels hurt when others are written about on it. I ask that no one take this as an insult in any way. I cannot ever begin to explain the pain and loss that she is feeling and believe me she is not mean or rude she is just protecting a place that she feels is especially for Brielle. As much as her friends miss her, there are no words that can ever describe what Amanda is going through. We have always heard that time helps heal the wounds, but in a situation like this with holidays and special things we have shared as a family time has truly become an enemy. It is as if everything and everyday is a first, anew day and it is extremely hard trying to figure out how to get through each and everyday. I do not know everyone's home life situations, but I can honestly tell you that for each of us, trying to get through each new day is very difficult as we have lost a voice. It is the same as having an arm cut off. Learning to deal in a different way is not easy at all. A family is not a family when one is gone. So I ask that no one judge Amanda as trust me you would not want to have to live 10 minutes in her shoes right now. Please be kind as that is what Brielle stands for. Never forget that. (11/12/08)

Anon Brandi, My heart hurts for you! Life will never be the same without Brielle. Life will forever be changed without your beautiful daughter. (11/13/08)

justme Brandi don't worry about anything.... anyone who knows Amanda knows how devastated she is . They also know that grief comes out in many ways. Here, on this forum, we remember, celebrate and miss Brielle Morgan Namer. I feel terrible for others who lose a loved one but this space wasn't created for everyone it was created for those of us who love, grieve, remember and memorialize Brielle's life. Amanda has earned the right to express that however she pleases. Sorry if it sounds insensitive... it's not the intent. I love you all. (11/15/08)

(Anon) "Just me" is absolutely correct. Mrs Namer, I think your message above is the most generous and kindest I have read. I agree that this blog was meant only for Brielle and understand that Amanda wants to keep it that way. Its Brielle and Amandas blog, and thats it. Your message though was so understanding and so loving that now I know where Brielle got those qualities from. Brielle and I were not very close (I am NOT athletic and were were never really in too many of the same classes) but I do know that she is the golden girl and the one everyone else looks up to. Me too. For what it is worth, I can tell you that Brielle is still with our grade every minute of every day. Its really true. She is in our classrooms and the gym. Everyone talks about her all the time. (11/16/08)

For Brielle I Love you Bri Bri and miss you very much (11/18/08)

big sister I miss u and love u a lot today is just a really bad day I kinda need you love u baby girl (11/18/08)

:,[ i miss you more than you'll ever know. i don't understand how we're all going on without you. you were the best thing that ever was, and we need you desperately, desperately here. nothing is ever goning to be okay =[ =[ god, how couold you let this hapepn? (11/02/08)

(Anon) Brielle is the best ever and the Namer family is amazing. Mrs Namer, I think your email to the nasty person was more than that person deserved. U r so kind. U should know that my whole family thinks of you all (Bri too) and the whole town loves u. (11/18/08)

justme Bri I hope you can get to Bergen county for the playoff game., We need your spirit there. Your inspiration your can do - don't quit - find a way attitude. Every kid of that team has YOU in their heart. That's why this season is what it is. No matter who was faster, bigger, stronger, they didn't have you as their angel. The sign is right you go everywhere with the class of '09 (11/19/08)

<3! Its been so long... I know you're gone, but in our hearts you will always always live on and all your friends, they live in your smile. There is no end - you will always live on, babygirl. We love you so much, Brielle. (11/21/08)

Beautiful Brielle Hey baby Girl, It's Sunday night and I'm just sitting here thinking about you. Kind of funny to put it that way cause I think about you all the time.Only 24 hours out of each day. I just can't post all of the time. Thanksgiving is on Thursday big whoop. Not very much to be thankful for. I said it a million times and I will say it again, it's just impossible living in a world without you in it. How does the world around us and the people in it even think thats possible? I mean we act as if we're all ok, but that's just what it is, an act, cause in reality we will never be ok. How can we be, your not here. Never thought in a million years that this could happen yet it did, it's hard to express in words what that means. I'm trying hard, we are all trying hard. But here I can write the truth. it's impossible, truly impossible. I love you now and forever and ever. You are in my heart and my soul and that will never change, that's about the 1 thing that I know is true. I love u baby girl, always. (11/23/08)

Touching This song... hits home in the time of mourning. Hope everyone gets through the Holidays ok... Youtube the song "Homesick"... really says it all! (11/23/08)

friend hey brielle.. i know we were only friends for a short time, but in that short time, you really impacted me in more ways than one. you taught me to be kind and compassionate in everything that i do.. we used to play sports together, and i was incredibly jealous of your athletic ability, but no matter how jealous i was, i knew you deserved every starting spot and every second of every game that you got to play in.. not just because you were the best player out there, but because you had heart, compassion, and you never criticized a single person. i'll never forget how you wore your hair during games.. you said your mom told you to wear your hair straight because it was good luck, and sure enough every game your hair looked all lioness lol.. you were incredibly silly and funny, all while being the nicest and most caring person i've ever encountered. i just can't believe you're gone. i regret losing touch with you, because you really were somebody special, and the world was lucky to have you. i hope you're doing well up there, and i really pray for your family. my heart goes out to you, because i know nothing anyone can say will bring back your beautiful daughter. rest in peace brielle (11/25/08)

Biffer<3 Last night Bri i hada dream. and it was of you. I was a mess that day...and i needed you with me. i wanted to call you so bad. so i wrote you a note. as dumb as that sounds. but i cant help being stupid sometimes..and i miss you too much to care. I am still thankful, everyday for Gods gift of letting me meet you. Not seeing your face i think is the hardest part. its like going out and knowing your not there. i miss you beyond words, and as you had always told me, be strong, i feel like the strenght i have is washing away... but i know Brielle, i know your still there with me. looking down, as my beautiful angel...helping me out with the good and bad and everything in between. i love you beyond words Brielle Morgan Namer. i hope your doing amazing up there, you most definitely deserve every bit heaven has to offer sweetie. <3 (11/26/08)

(Anon) Brielle, i didn't know you..i wish i did...looking at what everyone has said you seemed like a really good friend and sister....i didn't know you but i think about you and everyone who does know you... (11/26/08)

(Anon) There is no god, for this did happen. Therefore there is no god. To have a world without Brielle in it..... That's just impossible. It's also impossible to live in. Sorry but that's just the truth (11/02/08)

NICE LHS Cares: If the tragic passing of LHS student Brielle M. Namer earlier this year is a barometer for the extent of caring and compassion among LHS students, their families and the spirit of Livingston as a whole, then empathy in Livingston must be off the charts. The spirit of Livingston must be as high as a kite. I am moved by the fact that Brielle’s memorial website BrielleMNamer.com has received 6,000 or so visitors, essentially one quarter of the population of Livingston. It is heartwarming to see how much LHS & folks in Livingston care (10/10/08)

<3 "It's always easier to leave, than to be left." WE ALL MISS YOU SO MUCH, BRIELLE. EACH AND EVERY DAY WE FEEL YOU WITH US IN EVERYTHING THAT WE DO - YOU ARE ALWAYS WITH US. keep shining your pretty face down on us through the sun! we love you<3 (10/11/08)

A* I am sitting here at 800 in the morning trying to think. Its so hard not to send you a text or even just to talk to you. Everyone says to let it out and it will get eaiser. To me it never will I know that. I call your cell phone atleast 10 to listen to your voice because I haven't heard it in so long. People say everything happens for a reason and your in a better place. When they tell me that I just want to smack them in the face. People just say things because they don't know what to say. I still can't believe this is real and happening. I was talkin to someone the other day and it was about my wedding if I ever have one and you will not be there. Do you kno how much that hurts to even think about it. I want to have a girl as a child and I am goin to make sure she is just like you in every way. You will always be an amazing person and we both know it. Its so hard goin into your room. Sometimes I think shell be back soon because all of your stuff is in the same spot. Then I realize your not and the pain hurts a lot more. I know you don't want to see any of us sad just come bak show somethin do something. I LOVE YOU A* (10/13/08)

(Anon) I thought I was the only 1 who did that, call your cell phone just to listen to your voice, I hate it, that you left such a short message. I so miss hearing your voice, I miss everything about you. As for your room, I always called your room the happiest place in the world, to me it was like Disney World. Everything is just so large, colorful and happy. I don't go in there as much cause it hurts so darn much. Even though it's been 7 months it feels like yesterday, It feels like we're floating between this world and another world, cept this one your not in, and it hurts. It hurts a lot. I'm old and I just don't understand how any of this could of happened. I know what happened, I just don't know how it happened. Or why, cause no matter what anyone says there is no real or right answer. This is just wrong. So very wrong. Everything that seemed so important before basically has no meaning these days. I feel so bad for even typing any of this because Bri would be so mad, so mad, because she does not want us to be this way. And it's hard, real real hard but we have to try even harder then we are now, not for us but FOR BRIELLE. We have to try for Brielle. Brielle I love you so much, didn't know it was possible to love someone as much as I love you! Brielle, I'm so sorry that this happened to you, not for the pain that I'm in, but for you, it's just so unfair and I'm so very sorry! (10/13/08)

SECRET- It scares me just how much i miss her sometimes .. Bri, you are so loved, always. I wish there was something that I could have done to make things different for you because this was not your fate. I wish that I could have eased the pain that you felt and put it on my own body, I wish that I could bring you back to us. We miss you terribly, Brielle, but I'm pretty sure that you already know that. I am so sorry that you had to go through all that you went through, but I am so happy that you went through it with such poise and gracefulness............ I just really wish you were still here with us, Brielle. I love you beyond words and I will be thinking of you always and forever. (10/13/08)

anon hey brielle, we never really knew each other but had mutual friends. i dont understand this world, i don't think anyone really gets it. truth of the matter is we all are trying to get through life on earth so we can join you in heaven..can't wait (10/16/08)

(Anon) Hey, I fell asleep by the TV trying to study (right - u know how I study haha) and I dreamt about u. It was good and i know u r here and i will play hard for u (but i will still fail schoool hhahhaha. u wouldnt if u were here - u were the smartest and the best in our team). I am going bak to bed and will dream about u again cuz its nice to be w/u. Nightee Briiii (10/21/08)

Friend One of your favorite days is coming. next week is Hallowen. I hope you can enjoy it. it would be better if we had costumes together. But I carry you in my heart and I keep you safe there. I love and miss you so much. (10/23/08)

xo it was hard to not be a good person around you (10/26/08)

I love u so much I don't kno what to do its halloween and I'm getting so depressed I wish I knew something I love u baby sis (10/27/08)

big sis aka amanda Hey baby. Today daddy was not doing so well same with mommy please help them I do not kno what to say or do. Just help them please I love u (10/02/08)

anon I miss you so much. My heart is broken. There is no meaning of life for me anymore. I feel this is hell and I just want to move on to a better place to be happy with you again. ALL MY LOVE ALWAYS AND FOREVER. (10/28/08)

(Anon) WOW so many ppl go on your website. I go on b/c I worry about so many ppl who miss u so much. Sometimes in school we get talking about u and its so good and so hurting. Like the halloweenstuff LOL. Its ok we miss u and that hurting but we talk about u and then u r here :-) :-( (10/28/08)

Someone who loves you Halloween is tomorrow, your favorite day. Now it is no longer a special day because your not here. Basically every day is the same, it all sucks because your not here. People lie, they say it gets easier with time, it's not true. If anything it just gets harder. It's just so hard to believe that your not here. I have trouble accepting that to be honest, I mean how can you be gone? I don't understand any of this, and I never will. Love you so much! Happy Halloween Bri Bri (10/30/08)

ANON dear bri, thinking about you everyday, when you died i thought that a piece of me died too. but i was mistaken that piece of my heart is still living strong, remembering you telling others. - 21foreverandalways (01/19/10)

T'Anna I apoligize, but I have no idea who you are. I saw a link on facebook, and i just clicked on it. I looked through your pictures, and all the comments, wondering what happened to this girl, she gorgous, was it a car accident, was it drunk driving, what happened? I continued to read and came across a comment that mentioned that you had cancer. I than wanted to know more and more so i googled you, and found this. Something told me just read about this girl, find out more about this girl, im not a creep or anything, I am a stranger to u, ur friends and family but u are a remarkable young girl that had her life taken from a deadly diease. You were so young, but i do bless your family and friends, and glad that they had you in there life, your story and your friends comments can make heads turn, and i am one, so i had to post this. My name is T'Anna Kimbrough, im from Morristown, I most likely came across you in some path becuase i played basketball as well..although i graduated 08 i played sophmore yr..but i give ur family my blessins and god took a beautiful angel. R I P (02/14/10)

anonymous hey bribri just wanted to tell you that we love you and miss you so much. not a day goes by that we dont think of you and remember how wonderful and amazing you were. I can still hear your laugh and you calling my name so clearly. you were so special and you will always be our angel. rest in peace bribri you will forver be in our hearts. always. (03/05/11)

missing you i miss you so much bri bri...were missing a big part of our team this season but i know youll be there with us i love you bri bri were in the new gym this season were all gonna play hard for you bri 21 forever <3 (10/05/08)

Good Friend Just wanted to say Hi. Miss you very much. our profile reads just like you, although they could have wen on forever with how wonderful you are. Wish you were here with us. Love ou always. (10/05/08)

Anon Thinking of you and your family today. (10/06/08)

dumpling I miss you Bri. I want to talk to you but i don't know how. I wonder when this pain in my body is going to go away, but it doesnt, it grows larger. It's an ache for the sound of my best friends voice, the sight of her smile, or even an aknowledgement of some sort. But to put it bluntly, it sucks. you're presence is wanted every where by anyone who knew you and the people that want to know you. My parents get mad cause im not smiling, but its hard to smile now. I miss you so much and theres not a moment that i dont think of you. i found something i wrote in seventh grade, it was an assignment to write about my best friend. obviously i wrote about you. it was funny to read. but everytime i read something i get more upset. everytime i look at a picture i want to break down and cry. i miss you bri bri!!! We will always be best friends no matter what. you and i are forever! Love you always. (10/07/08)

MISS YOU Nice letter to the editor about Brielle in WEST ESSEX TRIB today (10/10/08)

Gi Bribri... the mural is coming out sooooo pretty just like you =) i hope you like it and im assuming if you don't youll come poke me in a dream or something hahah never thought i would miss you poking me and pulling my hair but i do more than anything. i try to be more patient and kind and thoughtful everyday because i swear you will live in me forever. I love you very much keep smiling up there =) (10/08/08)

(Anon) Babyy. Almost half a year with out you. Just seems like yesterday you were beating me up and we were on vacation. I miss you and love you so much. Ill be wit you soon very soon I love you (09/02/08)

<3 I think about you constantly, each and every day. We all miss you so much and we're all still hurting so bad because you're not here with us. Please, keep shining your pretty face down on us through the sun. And please, keep watching over your family. Everyone can tell that they are hurt so so soo very much, and there aren't enough words or anything to ever make things back to normal for them, or anyone. They'll always always ALWAYS be in my prayers, no matter what. I love you so much, Brielle. Forever and always, pretty girl<3 (09/01/08)

CB Wow, I can't believe that 4 days from now will mark the 6th month that you haven't been here with us :-[ I just miss you more and more everyday. It doesn't ever get easier, and I don't think that it ever will. We all love you so much, Bri, and we're all always thinking of you each and everyday. (09/01/08)

empty What can i say, starting school w/out u was crazy. nothing is the same and it hurts so much. (09/04/08)

Someone Who Loves You I Love you Brielle, Always with all my heart Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow & Forever ! (09/05/08)

Michael McCarthy I met Brielle through her Aunt Candi when she was about five. I'll never forget her sweet smile.My thoughts and prayers are with the Namer family. (09/05/08)

>>>>>>>> I am sooooo sorrry this happened to YOU. Why are there still sooooo many people who don't deserve to be here, still here, and people like you, not with us???? Brielle, you were an INCREDIBLE person. It is impossible to fill your shoes. FUCK CANCER. (09/06/08)

I'm SORRY for writing the above statement...I don't want this to be about profanity. I'm just incredibly angry and I don't really know how else to express that. I just wish I knew why. Why her? (09/06/08)

Tara Writt For the longest time i didnt know what to write here. Partially because it still hard to face that ur gone, and partially because its hard to put in words how much i miss u bri. Its funny because I was the older one so you would think that i could teach you a thing or two, but it turns out that ive learned so much more from you. Ive never seen someone so beautiful from the inside out. You've taught me how kind and fun a person can be. I miss boxing u out on the court and discussing what we have to eat on the way to lunch everyday. No one else in the world could ever make me laugh the way you did. Im in my first week of college now and i swear u are here with me. You're a part of me now and i can only hope that i become half the person you were. I love u babe and think about u everyday. Miss you always- Tara (09/09/08)

Candi Brielle, Whenever I post here I seem to say the same things over and over again. But I just don't know what else to say. I love you more then anything, You and Amanda mean everything to me. I'm so blessed that your Mom & Dad were kind enough to let me share in your lives. It's just impossible to think that your not here. But I will never stop loving you ever. And there really is never a second in a day that I don't think about you. Mom, Dad, Amanda, and Vic miss you so much. You really have no idea. I miss you sooooo much. I'm so sorry that this happened to you. What everyone else posted, that they didn't understand why, well I'm in their boat to because I have no answer at all. It never should of gone down the way it did, It's just sooo passed wrong. But Baby Girl, always know that I love and miss you with everything that is in me. I Love You Auntie Candi (09/09/08)

MoM Just wanted you to know Vic got his haircut and he is wearing a yellow ribbon. He looks good. Daddy and I are taking good care of him for you. Amanda started school, it is a work in progress. She is going to take a lot more work, but we are trying for you. She knows and wants you to be proud of her. LOVE YOU ALWAYS. You are never without me. MOMMY (09/10/08)

BIG SIS Hey... I dont know anymore. I went to see you yesterday after my class and I made sure everything was okay and my peace sign necklace i gave u is still their i love u baby its so hard u have no idea i love u (09/12/08)

stein hey girlllllllll....just thinking alot about you lately. Ive been playing my heart out in my soccer games and always trying to do what you would do, since you were always the best. i really should be captain of the team but my coach is screwing me over so i just keep reminding myself that you wouldnt let it get to you and you would play 100% all the time, it actually helps. i keep your picture on me all the time to keep me going. i really miss you and wish you were here to give me some advice. i know your looking over all of us. miss and love you <3 (09/13/08)

DAD everyday gets harder and harder i don't know how we go on without you everyday there is just a big empty hole in all of our hearts I LOVE YOU DAD (09/14/08)

Aunt Candi I Love you Bri, forever and always (09/18/08)

friend I AM THINKING OF YOU ALL THE TIME I MISS YOU ALWAYS ON MY MIND BRI XOXOXO (09/18/08)

Gianna Bri, i started crying today thinking about you. But then i felt silly crying because i saw how much happiness you unknowingly brought to me. Your death was not fair and it is not something i'll ever understand but, Bri you saved my life. Although ive been dealing with greif my entire life and have seen every therapist and counselor in north jersey, none of them can hold a candle to the things i learned from you . Brielle i always knew you were absolutely perfect. I cannot truly explain how lucky i know i am to have had the times i shared with you. Laughing, fooling around, all the while learning from you. Bri even if you arent tangible to me at this point in time, you are with me in a greater way than any other. You are a part of me; nothing can take you away from me. I hold my own piece of you inside and have internalized the lessons ive learned from you. Not to complain, to persevere, to have passion, and to not let anything stop you. i know your watching over and saw that i was in a car accident 2 months ago and that my knee is still a huge obstacle for me to deal with in cheerleading. Ive been experimenting with tumbling and landing on one foot, practicing in front of the mirror to make it seem like im doing the right thing with my feet when in reality my left knee recieves no impact. The brielle-in-me will not settle for watching the team preform things while looking on at them being limited. I didnt get cheerleading captain like i wished for the 12 years i cheered. But with you in mind i realized that the title "captain" is never what would have solely satisfied me anyway. Captain, to me, never meant "leader". In my opinion, a captain is the inspiration. Not only on skill-purposes for the rest of the team, but for the younger generations of that sport. Bri you are predominately looked up to throughout the entire community and it is my dream and goal that just one person will want to look up to me one day. My attitude towards cheerleading has changed from just a sport i love to a new-found strength in my spirit. its a way that i can improve myself and help others even if its just making a younger girl break out of her shy shell and be able to scream to a crowd. Brielle i cant express how much i admired you into words and have it fairly justify what in my heart. You are my sole inspiration in everything i do. (09/19/08)

Pineda ive been missing you alot girlie...i love you so much youre always in my heart bri bri 21 forever (09/19/08)

Anonymous Brielle, I really don't know what to say . Everyday that goes by and you are not here is horrible. I read all the wonderful things that everyone writes about you, and that just proves even more whata truly special person you are. I think sometimes that you were just too good. The world is filled with so many people that are both good and bad. But you were truly good. You didn't have a mean bone in your body, and you always put everyone else before yourself. There will never be anyone who could fill your shoes. I wish that I could have told you how special you are to your face, but that would have been wierd. I am sorry I didn't. I miss you so much and cannot get you out of my head for a second. You are always with me forever. I have no idea how your family will get through this, when it is so hard for me. Just know one day we will meet again and please let me be the better person this time. I will love you forever. Stay safe. (09/19/08)

. For the first two weeks or so of college, I had your picture as my laptop's background, and every time that someone saw it and asked me who you are, it pained me so much to have to say what happened to you, but it gave me so much pride to also say how great of a person you were and how you have and always will inspire me. But I had to take your picture down because it just got so hard to see it and realize that you really, truly are actually gone. It never gets easier, Brielle, and I think about you each and every day, constantly - I love you so much and I miss you dearly. You are always in my prayer, your family and friends as well.. (09/19/08)

PS- I think that I'll put your picture back as my background because I miss you too much to not want to see your beautiful face every day. (09/19/08)

:-) Hey baby, I am writing to u from school now so u r here with us. I like that it makes me feel sooooo closer to u. xoxoxoxoxo (09/23/08)

Someone Who Knows Amanda you are the best sister in the world. That's the truth. I know everything is impossible at the moment and things just suck right now. I could lie and say things will be better tomorrow, but I won't. But the 1 thing I won't have any of you do, you, your mom and your dad, is think that you are not the most AMAZING family that there is, in this world. Because all of you are. Brielle has the Best MOM, the Best DAD and the Best SISTER that she could ever have and I know that she feels this, and that is the truth 100%. I swear to that on my life! (09/28/08)

gianna's mom Brielle is there with you, she will help you heal and guide you if you let her. She can never leave you she's in your eyes, in your breath, in your heart ...in your soul. It's so hard to do but try to set your grief aside and Listen with your heart. Your pain is profound but please don't let it be the mark she leaves on you. Brielle would never want you remain so sad . Try to embrace the moments she gave you and remember her with joy. I pray for you and wish that somehow you find peace. (09/28/08)

A Friend who knows Amanda you were the best sister in the world to Bri she would always talk about what a good sister you were she looked up to you and you were always there for her. She always said how she loved the time she spent on vacation together just you and her, and how you let her drive your car remeber all the good times they will never be forgotten She will be with you always every where you go you will know (09/29/08)

Peace I hope that there will come a time when you (the Namers) will find more peace in your days. I could only imagine the pain and grief you are feeling. Brielle knows that she had the most wonderful parents and sister. Please know that she is and always will be looking down on you with a smile. Stay strong! (09/29/08)

I wish there was something I could do to help (09/29/08)

I Agree I Wish there was something that I could do to make Bri come back, and that this nightmare never happened! I'd give my life for that, that we would all wake up and this never happened! (09/30/08)

TO THE NAMER FAMILY - You are amazing people. Brielle was one lucky girl to have such a great family behind her, supporting her and loving her. I'm so sorry that this had to happen to your family and to Brielle. Nobody deserved it, and nobody wants to go through such terrible heartache like you are feeling. I hope that the days get easier. I will continue to pray for your family<3 I love you and miss you beyond words, Brielle. Continue to shine your beautiful face through the sun, and continue to look after your family. They need you more than ever. (09/30/08)

stein well..the beautiful place we met is over for the summer. i put all my energy and hard work into everything i did. sometimes when i was to tired to do something, i found myself thinking about you and how much energy you had to make you do everything. you motivated me alot this summer. sleeping in my bunk was extremly difficult for me knowing that you slept in the bunk bed across from me and fell threw the bed. it made me laugh and cry all at the same time. i didnt spend alot of time in there though, i got to upset. Alot of people still look up to you brielle and they always will. i miss and love you every day. (08/18/08)

MOM Hey beautiful, Coach Raiz came by todat to let us know that the soccer team is putting your number on the uniforms, and they will e wearng wrist ands too. Mr. Shue always your favorite also called today because they are puting your nmber on the senior shirts. You may not be here physically bri, but I wish you could have known just how special you were not only to the family, but to sooooo many others. I always said you were my special princess, and that your heart was pure gold. I am just so sorry that you never saw yourself that way. I guess that is what made you so extra special. You will never be forgotten, and love and admiration just grows stronger for you every passing day. You alays said that I said the things I did because I was your Mom. I swear to you, that's not true. You will forever be the one and only golden child. Dad and I miss you terrily, and everyday it seems to get worse. I wish I could take a page from your book, so that I wouldn't be letting you down. Victor everyday sends hugs and kisses. He goes into your room all the time. He is waiting for you to pop out. He wants to be rolled up in your blankes and watch ESPN. I love and miss you so much. I am sooo sorry this happened. May all who ignored my praying and begging go straight to hell. iI love you BOO BOO. ALWAYS AND FOREVER MOMMY (08/26/08)

Steve A. See...I never knew Brielle once in my whole entire life..now I am not going to be the person to ask what happened to her, because it really doesn't matter. Brielle, from what I read about her, was a wonderful human being, and it must be terrible to live without her on this Earth. But, life does move on, and Brielle, I'm sure will always be with us. When I first looked on this website I felt alot of sorrow and discomfort. I felt like I should do something with my life, and Brielle if you're listening then I hope you know that I am truly sorry about what has happened. And, I want everything to become normal once again. Your truly, Steven Ahle (08/31/08)

Someone Who Knows Amanda you are the best sister in the world. That's the truth. I know everything is impossible at the moment and things just suck right now. I could lie and say things will be better tomorrow, but I won't. But the 1 thing I won't have any of you do, you, your mom and your dad, is think that you are not the most AMAZING family that there is, in this world. Because all of you are. Brielle has the Best MOM, the Best DAD and the Best SISTER that she could ever have and I know that she feels this, and that is the truth 100%. I swear to that on my life! (09/28/08)

xoxo I think it would be a disservice to Brielle and the Namer family for this blog to become anything besides a tribute to what an absolutely incredible person Brielle is. It is true, "this" WON'T pass; your grief will evolve, and you may one day be able to come to terms with or make sense of it, but it will never go away, and I'm not sure that you would want it to. I can say, for the record, that I knew Brielle only for what would have amounted to a brief moment of her tragically short life, but I never forgot her. I don't know that anyone could have. What a genuine, caring, beautiful, talented yound woman. The world needs more Brielles, but she was truly unique. Brielle and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. (08/02/08)

michele Brielle - just sitting here tonight thinking of you and remembering our last conversation about how much you loved your family. I worry about them. All of your friends miss you and they talk about you all the time, Brielle, I know in my heart that you an see and hear all of us and I hope we're all making you proud. Gianna stays busy making plans for your mural at LHS and by finding ways to share your memory whenever she can. Everyones hearts are aching and I wish I new what to do for them. You must be the most spectacular angel. (08/02/08)

friend Not a day goes by that you are not with us all. Your LOVE and STRENGTH are missed. Your beautiful smile and heart are missed even more. Always know that someone everyday is there with you. You are never alone. We here are the ones who are truly alone. All my LOVE to you. (07/02/08)

BIG SISTER My bday is comin up and I dont even wanna celabrate it everyone is pushing me to do something and I just dont want to. I have your birthday card from last year hanging on my wall. I love you baby so much xoxoxo, Ive been a mess and now I am falling apart more then ever just wish you were hear. Didnt think that life was going to be this short for you. I love you. (07/11/08)

BIG SISTER POEM AT FUNERAL When I layed there beside you, Could you feel me there? My arms were wrapped around you, And I was stroking your hair. I was talking about all the good times, For me they were every single day. I wanted you to feel love and comfort, And happy in some way. I watched your every breath, And prayed that each one wasn't your last. The time we got to share together, Went by too quick...Too fast. I wanted you to wake up, Please Mum...Open your eyes. Tell me this is a nightmare, And not our goodbyes. As your last breath grew closer, We layed there peacefully together. My heart continually breaking, Because I wanted you forever. Then there it was, Your final breath of air. I didnt want to believe it, This is so cruel and not fair. I held your beautiful face, And prayed you'd breath again. I wasn't ready for you to go, I couldn't admit that this was the end. But then I realised that you were now in peace, And not suffering anymore. You were beggining the life of an Angel, And your body would no loner be sore. I held you close and squeezed you tight, And tried to say goodbye. I've lost my SISTER and my number one best friend, All my heart could do is cry. I slowly got up, I wanted so much to stay. I leaned over and gave you one more kiss, It was so hard to walk away. My SISTER is my entire world, And I miss you so very much. I wish I could feel your loveable cuddle, And your soft and gentle touch. But for now I have to wait, Until we meet again. You will always be in my heart and thoughts, My dear SISTER and best friend. Always and Forever, Our hearts will always touch. Always and Forever, Your baby girl loves you so much. (07/11/08)

To Amanda You are amazing (07/11/08)

stein hey bri...im at camp for the summer with no one is our divison. its kinda lonely but ive met new people. im sleeping in the bunk that you were in when your bed fell threw. i see the bed everyday and it reminds me of you. Everyone at camp for the first week were asking me about everything and how everyone is doing. it was tough but i just thought about how people should really know who you are. we did a stack the cap event last week and were donationg about 500 hats to an organization. i cried of both sadness and happiness from seeing all the donations. i wish you were still here in your bright clothes that always matched. i miss you so much. (07/13/08)

<3 "I am the red in the rose, the flowers on the blankets on your bedroom floor. And I am the gray in the ghost that hides with your clothes behind your closet door. I am the green in the grass that bends back from underneath your feet. And I am the blue in your back alley view where the horizon and the rooftops meet. If you cut me, I suppose I would bleed the colors of the evening stars. You can go anywhere you wish cause I'll be there, wherever you are." (07/14/08)

Amanda aka SIS I miss u baby girl n love u so much. I wish u were here wit me I'm in your bed right now. I love uuu (07/16/08)

Mommy Bri- Amanda's birthday is coming up, and she is soooooo unhappy. Daddy and I are trying very hard to make it okay for her. Please let her know that you want her to have a good day, and not to be upset, because you are with us. Love you every moment . (07/18/08)

Candi Bree Bree, I LOVE you soooooooooo much. Not a second goes by that I don't think of you. But you know that cause you are always with me. I just wish things were not the way they are, I wish that you were here. The way you were supposed to be. This, this is a nightmare and I just wish we would all wake up already from it! Enough is enough!!!!! (07/18/08)

(Anon) I wonder how it can be that someone so full of life and so vital and so alive and so beloved can be taken. I wish I could help ease the pain a bit for you all. (07/21/08)

DAD I THINK OF YOU EVERYDAY . UNTIL WE ARE TOGETHER AGAIN I WILL MISS YOU I LOVE YOU MY BABY XOXOXO (07/21/08)

anonymous Who is victor? I have been reading your blog, I wish your family well. I am just wondering who is Victor. (07/03/08)

(Anon) I am so sorry, you have no idea, Nothing can ever make up your loss. I am just so sorry (07/22/08)

big sis Hey hunie its me. The other day I went by to the temple to get my stuff from the funeral and of course that guy wasent there. Everyday goes by and I just wish you were here.

Mom and dad are doin pretty bad and I'm tRyin To be here and hold it together. Well I'm hungry like usual talk to you tomorrow I love you baby sis xoox always n forever my special angel (07/22/08)

(Anon) I feel so so bad for your pain. Nothing nothing at all is worse than what you are going through. It is odd; so many things happen in the world and so many losses but there is something about your child that was so special. She had a presence and a uniqueness. She was the essence of living and the thought that such a 'force' has been cut down is really hard to grasp. (07/23/08)

<3 Feel your heart- it breaks within your chest just to know that someone so loved and so young has been taken away entirely too early .. we love you and miss you beyond words, Brielle (07/24/08)

Anon My heart is broken for this family. How could this happen? Why? Amanda, happy birthday. Your sister would want you to have a happy day. Take one hour at a time. (07/24/08)

anonomous brielle you were an amazingg person and friend you will never bee forgotten (07/26/08)

anonymous Amanda, you are extraordinary and your parents love you with all their hearts. You deserve only wonderful things in your life. I hope that your birthday was okay and that you had some happiness on the day as you so deserve it. Jeff and Brandi, what you are going through is unimaginable but just know that you are the most wonderful, fabulous parents and people and that brielle was an extraordinary person. Our kids, were little kids together at mt pleasant elementary school and i will never forget the incredible bond between you and not only your kids but all of the the kids. your house was always the place where all the kids wanted to be. i think of you often and wish you only the best and some relief from the pain. i will always remember brielle at a pool party at our house, about 8 years ago, very calmly sitting there while the rest of the kids ran wild. your amazing daughter sat calmly and quietly reading a book. she was an exceptional child. take care. (07/26/08)

big sis Hey babyy. I got my wisdom tooth pulled and it hurt. Now I am dumber then ever haha. I miss u so much. I got a puppy and mommy named heR Bunny said that is what you'd want her to be name I love n miss u. My bday is comin up I don't even care. I love you baby just wish u were here it hurts bad love uu (07/27/08)

TO THE NAMER FAMILY I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Few, if any, adjectives can do justice to describe the kind of person Brielle was. I know the pain of your loss will not go away, but if you think about it, write down memories as they come to you. Over the years it is easy for little details to slip away, and sometimes it's nice to have a running log to look back on when you want to remember. Heaven has an extraordinary angel. God Bless your family (07/28/08)

anon I cant go see the fireworks this year; whats the point? WE MISS YOU and wish there was something we could do to help your parents and sister. I hope that they know everyone is thinking of them all of the time - and thinking of you too. (07/04/08)

Candi Please if you are going to post here on this special blog please do not post under anonymous. It bothers the family, so please type in your name. Thank you Amanda's Birthday is tomorrow 7/30 Happy Birthday Amanda (07/29/08)

pineda hey pretty girl i miss you alot and you problably already know but i thought id tell you anyway that the girls bball team is now coachless cuz ollnick and matten arent coaching us this season and i dont really know why but then again i dont really know why alot of things happen and soccer is starting soon and you wont even be there with us but were playing for you bribri we all love you i really hate that you wont be with us anymore and nothings been the same since you left us and it problably never will be we all miss you so muchh i love you brii (07/29/08)

Candi Also Please stop posting Poems about Death and such, it is not appreciated as well as the posting above that states this to shall pass. A lot of people read this special blog, and poems and quotes as that do not help the people here dealing with the loss of Brielle. Actually there are no words that can help with that. This blog is just to write to her, and to express your feeling about her, about just how wonderful she is, things that we already know, but makes us feel good to read. So please keep this in mind when posting. Thank you very much (07/29/08)

Nora Brielle - When I was at camp on Visiting Day, I could see that Stack The Caps was extremely successful. You would be proud, and probably wear that hat in some silly way no one else would think of. Love you so much. (07/30/08)

Brandi Please ignore the message that was left on the blog by Candi. Anyone and everyone is welcome to post. If you want to be anonymous that is fine. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Brielle's Mom. (07/31/08)

Anon Candi, Please understand that people post on this blog because they care about the Namers and about Brielle. I could understand the post about "this too shall pass" being upsetting to all of you. Your pain and loss will never pass and I understand that. I think that sometimes there are people that will offer some sort of comfort and would like to remain anonymous. We are pulling for all of you. The community at large feels your pain and I think people are just trying to make it a bit easier. We all mourn the loss of a wonderful daughter, sister, friend, athlete....Brielle (07/31/08)

AMANDA NAMER BIG SISTER Everyone is so messed up sorry baby.This is my last post on here for a bit cuz I just need some time . I LOVE U SO MUCH BABY C U TOMORROW (07/31/08)

(Anon) I agree with everything the person above said. I have never met you but knew your daughter from school events and she was a cut above; truly special. I post here just to let you know that your family is in our thoughts always and I so wish I could do something to ease your pain. So I guess I think that by letting you know that we will never forget your daughter, that might help. I dont think this will ever pass. (07/31/08)

(Anon) love you (01/21/16)

SPECIAL ONE I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER XOXOXO (07/05/08)

anon To the Namer Family; you had the most wonderful daughter. My children knew her and had so much respect for her athletic ability. It must be devistating to be separated from her.... Please be comforted in the fact that she meant a lot to so many people. (07/06/08)

just me MISS YOU SO MUCH; Namer family - I hope you are doing ok. (07/09/08)

Victor Victor is and will always be Brielle's best friend. He is her English Springer Spaniel who cries for her everyday. His heart is broken, and he has a hard time everyday just going on. Each day he goes to her room and just cries. (07/07/08)

Found a quote: "Whenever i think of the first time we met, you seemed too special to ever forget, and i felt you changing my life even then, i just fall in love all over again. whenever i think of the time you've been there, to talk with me, to laugh with me, show me you care, to comfort and cheer me, and be a real friend, i just fall in love all over again. whenever i think of my time spent with you, when so many beautiful dreams have come true. whenever i think of how happy i've been, i fall in love all over again" I thought some people could relate to it .. Miss you always and love you forever, Brielle. There isn't a day that goes by where you aren't in my mind<3 (07/07/08)

(Anon) Hey bri...i was just thinking about you...we all miss ya soo much...keep on looking down upon us <3 (07/08/08)

stay strong we love you amanda, it will get easier in time, i promise (06/02/08)

BIG SISTER-- Hey hunie we are in Puerto Rico and I am missing you like crazy. I hate being here without you its hard. I really just want to go home. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH SEE U SOON (06/12/08)

"Baby, you have no idea how hard it Wish you were still here so that I could always see your pretty, pretty face, but I know that you are in a better place now and I know that you aren't suffering anymore .. I just wish that it didn't have to be you. Love you always and miss you forever<3 (06/15/08)

missing you <3 (06/17/08)

Thinking of you I've wanted to say something for awhile but I wasn't quite sure what to say until now. I get sad everytime I hear about Brielle, see a picture, or even think about why someone so incredible was taken from this world. But the truth is no one will ever be able to understand it, because things this unexplanable happen all the time. The reason I am posting on this blog is because I would like to offer some sympathetic words to Amanda, or anyone else close to Brielle. I can't begin to imagine what it is like for the Namer family right now, the pain they must be dealing with everyday. I know for a fact that it will never go away and you will think about her everyday, but grieving is a process that never really ends, you eventually have to create a new normal that works for you. I know there is always gonna be a memory that catches you by suprise, you'll smell a fragrance, hear a song. You won't forget, but you just have to wait for the sadness to dull over time. And eventually there is going to be other people and other events that fill up you life, you'll never stop feeling her absence, but thats how we deal with the pain. But Amanda, do not let this pain paralyze you. I know this is easier said than done but take what you love about Brielle most and share it with the world in your own way. I feel like it is impossible for people to be forgotten if those who love us live a wonderful, amazing life and share this wonderful persons life with anyone they meet. Brielle will never truly be able to die as long as her memory is shared with the world. She will always be a part of everyone she knew, and even those who didn't know her, but know of her story. There is a very real part of Brielle's life that will live on forever, that even death cannot destroy, or erase. The fact that she loved and was loved in return is something that death really cannot touch. I know people say they were lucky to have her in their lives, even if it were only for awhile, and I know that does not make this any easier, but she is a part of her family and friends indefinitely. I know a lot of what i said may seem a little sappy, or corny, but I hope maybe it helped Amanda or anyone having trouble moving on with their lives. RIP Brielle, you did not deserve this... (06/24/08)

Olivia o0o mi amor everytime i open this page, i cant get past one person's blog. god knows i wouldnt dare try reading these comments when i cant even bring myself to read your letters My angel, my all, my very self -Love demands everything and that very justly thus it is to me with you, and to your with me. But you forget so easily that I must live for me and for you; if we were wholly united you would feel the pain of it as little as I-If our hearts were always close together, I would have none of these. My heart is full of so many things to say to you - ah - there are moments when I feel that speech amounts to nothing at all -wherever I am, there you are also - I will arrange it with you and me that I can live with you. What a life! Much as you love me - I love you more. Oh God - so near! so far! Is not our love truly a heavenly structure, and also as firm as the vault of heaven? Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my angel, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never-never-Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. Your love makes me at once the happiest. At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell... I will go through my life in the hope of making her proud of me and I know she will be watching over me everyday, meeting me in my dreams, poking me and pulling my hair while I sleep and always walking by my side. Now that she has passed, it’s up to us to find the beauty and sprint and meaning that she has left behind. I hope that when people think of Brielle, they will think of a wonderful time they spent with her, and remember the amazing person that she was. Brielle, I love you and you will always be my best friend. (06/25/08)

Candi It's me again Baby Girl,I don't know if posting here helps me or hinders me. In ways it makes me feel closer to you, yes I can't help myself I read all of the other posts and just cry. But each day I come back. I know you can't read the letters, But I do know that you are with me, as we are always with you. Not to sure if that makes sense. All I know is how much I love you, and how much I hate the fact that your not here. It's way past wrong. What the hell was god thinking. He made a mistake. But this mistake, this one is just so wrong. I have your name and your jersey number on my body permently, just as you are and will always be in my heart forever. Some things will never change, and even though you are not here in front of me, you are still my baby and u will always be with me. I'd just rather you were standing in front of me. I love you so much, my beautiful baby Girl (06/26/08)

Marie Amanda, it is hearbreaking to read your posts. I wish there was something we could do to help. We who knew Brielle know that you had the nicest and most wonderful sister anyone could have. Equally as important is that Brielle had one of the nicest persons anywhere as HER sister. You are fortunate to have each other. We are so sad knowing that you are in such pain. We are thinking of you and you are in our hearts. (06/03/08)

Signs I think that during the ceremony at LHS there was a sign from Brielle - there were rainbows and they were special and I know Brielle was there. Amanda - you DONT have to be strong. Not for anyone. You are just a kid and I hope there are some grownups in your life that will hug you and not let you be alone. Keep writing so we can keep supporting you. (06/03/08)

anon Hi Amanda honey - hope you will get some sleep and some peace tonight. You are wonderful. (06/04/08)

MY FRIEND She was the most special person in the world She will always be in the hearts of everyone and has changes everyone in it for the good.Brielle will be with everyone when you need her. she has always been there for all that is in need. she is and will always be BRIELLE (05/19/08)

MOM Mom You are probably thinking what is going on? My shy, quiet girl is getting such a huge amount of attention. I just wanted to let you know that although you always tried to blend in and not stand out--- It was impossible. You always said I thought you were the best because I am Mom. But it's not true. I have always been sooo proud of you, you always conducted yourself with grace and dignity, and above all kindness and love. The secret was never a secret. Everyone you knew saw all this and more in you. They just let you slide so that you weren't embarrassed. It is unbelievable that so many have been inspired by you to do such nice things as a tribute to you. I bet you are shocked as you liked to be under the radar. It's okay, we are all so honored that you and only someone as SPECIAL as you could create such a stir. It's like I always said and always will say- YOU ARE AND WILL ALWAYS BE AN ORIGINAL. We love and miss you so very much. You have my heart with you all the time. Luv you. (05/22/08) (05/22/08)

Candi Brielle, I love you and always will, nothing will ever change that. (05/22/08)

Anon There were two rainbows this evening during the celebration at LHS, not one but two. I wonder if everyone saw them. They arced right over us and for anyone who noticed them, there was no doubt that that Brielle what with us during this celebration for her life. (05/22/08)

A Friend I saw the 2 rainbows in another location in town and knew that it was Brielle! (05/23/08)

Missing you I saw the rainbows - Brielle was there NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. It hurts that she is so far away looking down on us but it is so comforting to know that she was there. MISS YOU SO MUCH (05/23/08)

rainbows I SAW THE RAINBOWS ON THURSDAY TOO! Thanks for still being here with us, pretty. We love you so much, Brielle.<3 (05/25/08)

Nora This blog is a beautiful documentation of the way Brielle has touch all of our lives. To the Namer family - I hope all is well and that you are still strong. To Brielle - we all miss you each and every day. As the summer gets closer, I can't help thinking about you and all the girls at camp together. We love you! (05/28/08)

anono I am truly sorry Brielle is gone. I knew her several years ago, but she left an imprint on my heart and mind. I don't know that anyone whoever met Brielle could have forgotten her. I know that I never did and I never will. (05/08/08)

anon To the Namer family: hope you all are doing well. Looking forward to hearing more about the Namer fund. (05/28/08)

Eric Wolkstein Hey Brielle i just wanted to say we had our first meeting for the football team next year and we discussed all normal football stuff and we talked about team clothing and stuff and i remember i bought my girls basketball shirt from you and i always bought clothes from you. next year well all have either BMN or the number 21 on our helmets and, or jerseys for you. i dont know about anyone else but i know that my season next year is for you and ill always play my best in your honor. i hope your well and i wish you didnt have to go. i think about you a lot and i just wish you could be here (05/29/08)

BIG SISTER Alll I can say is I DONT KNOW ANYMORE.. Nothin is the same and it feels like everything is falling apart. I dont know what to do or what to say anymore to anyone. Every night I go to sleep hopin I dont wake up in the morning. I LOVE U BABY GIRL ILL SEE U SOO SOON (05/30/08)

To the Namer Family-- I've been praying for Brielle and your family ever since last year when the world was sadden by the knowledge that she had cancer. I am hurting so much for you because even 3 monthes later, it is still just so surreal. I know that the pain that you are feeling is insurmountable, and although there is no bright side to losing life, just know that your beautiful darling is in the midst of good company who loves all and hates not one, and know that one day your gonna be with her. And to AMANDA-- keep your head high, gorgeous. I can't say that I completely understand what you are going through, because if I did, that would be a lie.. But I do know that where ever you go, Brielle will always be with you. She will always be your breath, your mind body and soul, your heart, your flesh. And she will always be there In every day that you live. So stay strong, hun. (05/31/08)

Amanda AKA Big Sister Everyday goes by and honestly reading the site makes me happy seeing everyone care about you. But at times I just wish all of this wouldn't exist so you can be left alone baby. Tonight it is 1:30 A.M. and I am breaking down. I don't know what to do anymore. It is just so hard, knowing that your room is right across from mine and I can't go in to annoy you or just lay in bed with you. It really stinks being alone. I feel like an only child. It is not fun. I was going to go to Monm's room and lay with her, but I just can't. You know how hard it is for me to open up. Everyday I remember you dressing up the penguin you got me. It took you like 30 minutes to put your jersey on it. I never changed it. It is still standing tall in my room like you made it with the bunny ears you stole from me on Halloween. For once I am not stealing clothes from your room, I just can't. It makes me too sad to go in there and do it when you are not able to yell at me. I miss you so much. I cry all the time. I am trying to be strong, especially for mom and dad. People say you have to be strong, but how can you do that when your other half is missing. Reading the cards from you over and over again saying that even though we fight we are still best friends and love each other so much. You were always so good and nice to everyone Bri, I am trying. Natalie and I have become close now. She really understands. I wish it was the 3 of us. Everyday I wonder why it was you and not me. You were and will always be perfect. This is all so wrong. I have become a planter now. Can you believe it? I plant flowers for you all the time. I love you baby and I just wish I knew you were okay, send me a sign. Well I gotta try to get some sleep now. I LOVE YOU BABY> FOREVER N ALWAYS MY LIL SISTER-- DOUBLE TROUBLE FOREVER. (06/02/08)

BIG SISTER Hey baby girl I miss you sooo much. I can't wait to leave puerto rico and come home and see you and talk to you and tell you how much I hate this trip. Mom told me that meeting people are signs and every trop that I am on I meet someone. I love you see you on tuesday I love you baby girl always and forever my baby sister xoxooxx (06/15/08)

Fly on proud bird<3 "An empty chair at all the tables. And, I'll be seeing you when all my days boil down. But, it's better where you're going anyway." RIP lovely angel (05/08/08)

Anon Brandi, Brielle is with you on this Mother's Day! May you get throught today with peace. Brielle is with you every step of the way. (05/11/08)

(Anon) I love you so much Brielle, Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. You are with me Always! (05/12/08)

Friend Not one day goes by that everyone is not thinking of you. It is truly amazing how one quiet, shy blondie has touched so many -- so deeply. Always know each day that goes by is just a day, not a good one. Everyone loves you sooooo much Brielle. You are with us all forever and always. (05/15/08)

A REAL FRIEND IS YOU A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself (and doesn't feel even the least Bit weird shutting your Coke/Pepsi drawer' with their foot!) A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears. A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book. A simple friend brings a bottle of bubbly to your party. A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean. A simple friend hates it when you call after they've gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call. A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems A simple friend wonders about your romantic history. A real friend could blackmail you with it. A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight. A simple friend expects you to always be there for them. A real friend expects to always be there for you! A simple friend reads this e-mail and deletes it. A real friend passes it on and sends it back to you! Pass this on to anyone you care about......if you get it back you have No beginning, no end. It keeps us together, like our Circle of Friends. Today I pass this on to you. Pass it on to someone who is a friend to You... (05/16/08)

TO MY BRIELLE Daddy Amanda, and I want you know that right from the start you are our hero. Your strength, courage and fight could never have been done and endured by anyone other than you. And to add all you were going through you always thanked everyone for helping you, and being with you. There is no other place in this world that we would have been. Just like you made everyone else before yourself top priority, you have and always will be our top priority. Daddy, and I want you to know that having you has our daughter has and is a blessing, and the best thing that has have happened in our lives. From the moment you were born it was if you had a label attached to you that said “very special coming out”, and as you grew older it became even more apparent this was true. The joy, and love you had for the family and everyone else just radiated from you. And you never even knew. To you this was just your natural way. Your manner, your spirit, your loyalty and devotion always set you apart from others. Yet you were so humble you never even had a clue. No parent could ask for a better student academically, high honor roll, and no coach could ask for a more devoted player, and not one friend could ask for a more loyal dependable person to have on their side. You always believed that sports was what set you apart, and you were so wrong. Sports were a big part of you, but you soul, kindness, and all around sweetness were what set you apart. There has never been a single person who has met you, even those who knew you a short time all say the same thing, and I quote “ Brielle is the most gorgeous girl I have ever seen, she is the politest, sweetest, loyal dependable, and has a heart of gold: Everyone always thanks Daddy and I for allowing you into their lives. All of your friends know this and feel this way, and Daddy and I are honored to say you are our daughter. You have been the best sister to Amanda. You have always protected her, and even taken the blame for her many times. I also know that many times comments were said to you that you spend so much time with your family, instead of your friends. I know this bothered you. But I also know tat it was you that made the choice to be with us. Our family is probably a little odd, and that's okay-it works for us. I am willing to bet that there are no other daughters that every night give their Mom and dad a hug and kiss goodnight. It was a house rule, and you usually were the one to make sure it was done. We were just always happy sharing our time together. Your Dad and you have a bond that I never really quite got as you both had a weird sense of humor, but hey the 2 of you enjoyed it. You and I have a bond that I don't believe anyone could understand. They say the parent teaches the child, yet I have learned more from you than you can imagine. You are the blood that runs through my veins, and we have been and will always be best friends forever. Amanda and you have a more complicated relationship. You were her protector and guardian. You talked her out of dumb things, and she listened to you because she knew deep down you were right. Millions of babies will be born yet I know that not one will have all the qualities that you have that made you so special. I cannot even try to explain or understand why this has happened baby, but I can swear to you that there will never be a time ever that Daddy, me, and Amanda don't have you in our thoughts and hearts. You will be with us for ever. I know your pain and suffering have stopped, and Mom wants you to know that I need to you stay brave and stronger than ever. I will be we you as soon as I can my Baby/ Close your eyes, and relax on the beach in Puerto Rico, and I will be you as soon as I can get there.We all love you, no one will ever forget you and everyday you are with us. (05/18/08)

thursday there is a really great thing going on for you on thursday and i KNOW you'll be there....can't wait for you to see everyone and the support the town has for you and your family, can't wait to celebrate your amazing life! (05/19/08)

Brielle @ 19:55 PM   Add Comment

Chris Porcelli I am not the most eloquent guy in the world but I felt that I had to say something about this incredible, beautiful, heroic little girl. Her story should be an inspiration to anyone who has heard or read about her. Never has a complete stranger made such an impression on me. I wonder if I will ever be able to yell at my kids ever again, how could I? To Brielle's parents, try to stay strong, I know you are so very proud of the amazing girl you created. I will never look at my little 7 year old daughter the same way again, she is so precious to me, as Brielle was to you, and this morning, although I never thought it possible, she is even more precious. As I was looking at the pictures posted on her website, the tears were rolling down my face as I am thinking,how unfair life can be. I just wanted to thank you for sharing your story, I believe it will make me a better father. Brielle Namer is a hero. My prayers go out to all. (04/06/08)

Denise Jones Brown The pain goes away but the love stays. May God in his infinite wisdom grant you the peace that surpasses all understanding. (04/07/08)

B Leskanic After hearing about Brielle and reading the story in the Star Ledger, my heart goes out to the family. I recently lost my brother in law to colon cancer and cannot imagine losing a child. My daughter who is at LHS knew of Brielle. Brielle must have been an amazing young lady. She must make a wonderful ange!!!! Bless you all!!! (04/07/08)

Melanie Talesnick It has taken me a while to decide what to write here, but in the end, nothing will do the Namer’s and Brielle any justice. I've known the Namer’s ever since they moved to Livingston and had the privilege to coach Brielle. I always knew she was special. Although, sometimes you never knew what to expect when she came around. You knew she would work hard, motivate others, end up in the mud, give you everything she had, but when it came time to play around, and with that personality of hers, you really NEVER knew what was coming next. Those goofy times are some of the memories I treasure most. When we would email, text or see each other, she was more concerned with what was going on with me, then what was going on in her world. Even in one of our last text conversations, she still had me laughing. I also think that one of the things that made Brielle so special was that she did not know the impact she had on others. She didn’t know that a smile in the hallway, some laughter, or a few words of encouragement would leave such an impression on others, but it’s obvious even her smallest of actions did. She was personable, had a passion for life and a desire to succeed. She was wise beyond her years, yet youthful and fun-loving all at the same time. She was and will continue to be my inspiration. She battled and strived to be the best in what ever she was doing. Whether it was out on the soccer field, in the classroom, or when we would talk about college, she only wanted the best. She loved her family and friends like none other. Watching her grow up was something I was really looking forward to. She had so many hopes and dreams, and I hope that those she loved (which appears to be so many) will fulfill her dreams, because that is what she would want. I hope to live my life with the same optimistic, upbeat attitude, as well as her perseverance, strength and above all, love for life that Brielle lived for every day. I know that my life is better for having Brielle in it. She must have had the biggest heart in the world, because so many cared for her, and don't think for a minute that each of you did not have a special place within her heart. Brielle, I will miss you, watch over those who love you, and I hope to do you proud, just as you did me every day through it all. You were truly amazing. Keep smiling. (04/07/08)

anonymous Brielle was to good for this world we live in down here. She is up heaven, watching over all who loved her, making sure everything is okay down here. I have no doubt in my mind she's smiling with that glow she had, making everyone up there laugh and feel good. As horrible as it feels down here, the pain will slowly go away, but our guardian angel will never. She will always be with all of us, and I know everyone who cared for this amazing girl will feel or has felt her presence. To the Namers - slowly but surely things will get better, just take one day at a time and know your amazing little girl is always always with you, wherever you are I have no doubt she is right there with you guys. She was one of a kind. Fly high angel, enjoy it up there until we all eventually are there with you. Rest in peace gorgeous girl (04/07/08)

Livingston Resident Brielle Namer...what a remarkable child! My thoughts and prayers are with the Namers. Hopefully, Brielle will guide them through the toughest of times. She will forever be their guardian angel. (04/08/08)

miss you ugh another week, you are still gone, is it going to feel like this everyday..i hope you are enjoying yourself up there, i am sure sure sure you are..xoxoxo (04/11/08)

Laura C. from Monoc ext. 1131 Hi Mr. Namer, I spoke to you the other day when you called into Monoc...we were the paramedics on call for Brielle....You told me to look at her website and I am so glad you did. When I saw into Brielle's eyes I knew then she will live forever...she certainly is a ray of sunshine. As I promised, I made that bill go away, I sent you a receipt showing it is now a zero balance. You did not need another burden over all of this. You and your wife now have her as your guardian Angel and believe me, she will let you know she is around....it might be just a touch or a smell or thought, but she will surely let you know. She would be very proud of this memorial website, it is very beautiful just like she is and always will be....Children are not suppose to go first, we all know this, but remember she takes no pain with her, she takes the love of her parents and family and friends with her and that is who will keep her alive forever. I thank you for introducing me to this wonderful lady even if only through her photos....thank you for sharing her with me and everyone else to see, she sure is an inspiration.....Hold onto your memories sweetie....it will take you through life, live it through her but know you will always take her with you.....hugs, Laura C. (04/12/08)

Theresa Mr. and Mrs. Namer: I too just read about Brielle in the Sunday paper from last weekend. My heart and soul goes out to you both and your daughter Amanda. From what I've read on the blog and in the article, Brielle must have been a joy (I'm sure with some usual teen "moments") and it would have been a pleasure to meet her. She will be remembered forever by those that knew her or those of us that will think of her. For all I know maybe I have already crossed paths with Brielle at the Jersey shore, at a resort, on vacation, who knows. I just know that Brielle will be watching over her family and friends and everyone else who ever thinks of her. My heart breaks for what you are going through. All of the firsts are the most painful but then you have to look back on all the joy that Brielle brought to you and when you look at Amanda. Amanda needs all the love and attention you can possibly give to her. And remember, whenever anyone asks how many children you have say two, Amanda and an Angel. Hugs all around from someone who cares. Theresa (04/12/08)

missing you always still can't grasp the fact that you are in heaven and i am here, hope its everything everyone makes it out to be, have fun up there.. (04/15/08)

Adrienne C, RN To Brielle and Family, it was my privilege to have been one of the many nurses that you encountered at MSKCC, your family's love, determination and positivity despite all odds has made a huge impact in my life. We'll never forget you, adn we'll always remember Brielle's bright and beautiful spirit. (04/17/08)

Diana To The Parents of Brielle, I read Brielle's story in the Sunday Paper today April 6, 2008, and I wish to express my sincere sympathy to the family of Brielle. She was an inspiration to all. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sincerely Diana (04/06/08)

Just Thinking about the Namers Think of the Brielle and the Namer Family always. Always on my mind. Hoping that you are getting through the days with Brielle watching over you. (04/18/08)

Jamie Singer Brielle- I wake up to your picture every morning, and look at it as the last thing I do before I go to sleep at night. You were such an inspiration to everyone. I remember playing softball with you as your team mate, and playing against you. I remember you hitting a home run, and I honestly think the ball is still flying..thats how far the shot went. I remember being SO impressed at how beautiful you were, talented in school, and with sports, and I though to myself, I thought everyone has their flaws? Well i can't think of one thing for you. It was truely amazing to me how great and motivated you were at everything you did, and it really inspired me to be a better person. Agreeing with what Melanie Talesnick stated about how it was very cute how many peoples lives she touched and didn't even realize it. Everyones perspectives about life has changed since this.I miss you very much & not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I can honestly say how honored I am to have known you and been able to say that you were a team mate, classmate, and friend. I have pictures of you and I all around my room and I will never forget you. Keep smiling & shining. Love you forever <3 Jamie (04/21/08)

Lonely Friend It has now been 47 days and I still can't believe you are not here. I miss everything about you. I miss my best friend, your beautiful smile and knowing you were always there for me. They say everyone has a mean bone in their body, but Bri you DIDN'T. That is why me and everyone else are so sad and stunned. You were an open book. What you saw was what you got. That's what made you so unique and special. There will never be anyone else like you ever again on this planet. I know we will meet again, and then I will feel better. Just remember nobody will ever forget you or how special you are. I love you soooo much, and everyday I carry you in my heart and thoughts. You are never alone, as I will always be here thinking of you. (04/21/08)

SISTER We had passover dinner and it wasent the same without you baby girl i never want to do it again... I LOVE U (04/22/08)

(Anon) Almost everyday I come by and look at what people write in hopes that maybe it may give me the words i need to write something myself. Brielle, you truly helped me get through my sickness. When i was getting pricked with needles for endless days i would think about you and how if you could do it i could do it. You were able to keep that smile on your face even in the worst of times. You taught me thats the best way to get through it. I can remember when we played softball and soccer together. I remember the comments you would make when i was in the game, they would always make me laugh but make me wanna work so much harder. Everyday I wonder why you? You were too young and this wasn't fair! Whenever I'm warming up for the game ill always pretend its you trying to be a ninja kicking balls at me (which was the funniest thing!) or you yelling gooo sexyy girl!! at me. I'll try to keep these memories with me forever. Ever since you passed i have been getting a whole lot better..and i would like to think that you're the one helping me still....brielle we all miss you and think about you everyday...we love you. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Namer family. She will never be forgotten. (04/26/08)

anonymous hi pretty girl i miss you so much you have no idea...everything i do just seems to remind me of you its so hard to believe that your gone even though you will always be with us in spirit and everytime i step onto the turf or walk into the gym at LHS i can feel you there I know you are happy now and in no pain but sometimes i just wish we could just kick the ball around together or go into the gym and shoot around just one more time i miss you so much Bri Bri i just wanted to ask you to watch us play next year because im a hundred percent sure that we wont forget the plays i love you so muchh you will always be in our hearts (04/26/08)

Big Sister I just left mom and dads room. It was Candis birthday today and I signed your name on the card because it was not the same anymore. I never knew that I could hurt like this you dont understand. Everyday I have a break down and its so hard not to do it in front of mom and dad because I dont want to hurt them even more. Ive been going to the cemetary alot not telling them to see you. Even tho I know your spirts arent their I just like to go check that your safe. I decided if I get married I am not having any brides maids because if your not their I dont want anyone. What am I going to do I dont have my other half. I dont have you to protect me and yell at me. I know we fight alot but I know we loved each other alot. I am sorry for everything I did. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH .. ILL SEE YOU MY BABY GIRL (04/27/08)

FOR EVER TO KNOW HER WAS TO LOVE HER.AND TO BE HER FRIEND IS A GIFT YOU WILL HAVE FOREVER BECAUSE SHE SAW THE BEST IN PEOPLE AND MADE IT COME OUT IN THEM (04/27/08)

so so sorry... My heart breaks from all the comments on this page, but especially Amanda's. Having 2 sisters, 1 still with us and 1 angel, I can imagine what you are going through. I understand what it feels like, the constant pit that wont go away, the wondering and day dreaming that turns into tears and "why's". I know you think that life will never be good again, and that you will never be happy again, but I promise you, it will come. It will take time but soon you will adjust to having an angel as a sister, a gorgeous one. She is always with you and your family. Until the day you meet her in heaven, she is ALWAYS with you, by your side and being your guardian angel. I pray for you at night Amanda, and your family as well, but especially you..because I know...be well, and brielle - rest in peace beautiful girl everyone here misses you.. (04/27/08)

(Anon) Brielle, I miss you so much, it feels like so long that ur not here and not only 55 days. I don't know what to write, it does not seem real, how can the world be real when you are not in it? I'm supposed to act like a mature adult but how can I when I don't understand, I don't understand any of this. I try so hard to be strong but it's not working. Forget you.....? Can a person forget how to breathe? It's the same thing.Your my life and life will never be the same ever again...... (04/28/08)

Anonomys* To the Namer family, it is a true tragedy what happened to Brielle. I know that I dont know you, but I would like to extend my deepest sympathy, warmest prayers and heartfelt condolences to your family. I read this heartbreaking story in The Star Ledger and it is such a tragic loss. I truly am sorry and you will all be in my thoughts. (04/06/08)

(04/28/08)

Anon How can you breathe when losing Brielle took your breathe away? Brielle was your life. Life was taken away when she left. I can't stop thinking of your loss. A parent is not supposed to lose a child. Why? (04/30/08)

annonymous To Amanda- you may not know me but you are an inspiration to me. My sisters are my life and l can not imagine what you are going through each day. One thing is for sure, you are a rock, a fighter, and have my upmost respect. If l had any idea what could bring you and your family just the smallest amount of happiness, l would do anything in my power to bring it to you. You are truly blessed to have Brielle as your sister. Friends are absolutly amazing but there is nothing in this entire world as special as two sisters, and yours is watching over you now. You can live everyday knowing your sister is a gift you, and only you, were chosen to receive. Keep being strong and know that you inspire me and have taught me very much without even having a single conversation. RIP Brielle, you are incredible. (05/01/08)

Anoymous My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Brielle. I do not know her or her family, but was truly moved by the stories I have heard about her. I can't even begin to imagine the pain and sorrow her family is going through, but hopefully you can take comfort in the fact that you raised a remarkable young lady who touched the lives of so many people. May she rest in peace. (04/06/08)

Jenn Eagan To the Namer Family, I did not know Brielle, but I grew up in Livingston and heard about her. I wanted to send my deepest sympathy to everyone whose lives were touched by this beautiful girl. I just lost my dad to cancer on March 27th of this year, and I know that no words can heal the pain that you must be feeling but you can take comfort in that you have so much support around you and an amazing turnout at her services. She is someone to be admired for her strength and for that, you should be very proud. I'm very, very sorry for your loss. (05/06/08)

Andrea Samlin Not a day goes by without thinking about you. Camp will never be the same. All the memories we have had are priceless. I truly hope that our paths cross again. You were an amzing friend with a heart of gold. I love you and miss you so much, (06/04/08)

Suzzan I want to thank the Namer family for sharing with the world the life of such an amazing daughter and wonderful person who had such an impact on so many lives. About six months ago my daughter was diagnosed with RSD she is only 17 and I have also been able to experience first hand how difficult it is when you see your child go through pain. The article in the Star Ledger is how I found out about Brielle. The love shown by all of your family members and friends has helped me cope and has given me strength and courage to forge ahead. My prayers are thoughts are always with you. (07/19/08)

Hillary Cochin Brielle is such an inspiration to me. She was one of the nicest people I’ve met. You know when you introduce your home friends to your camp friends and they never get along, well I never had to worry about that with Brielle because everyone loved her. Not only that, Brielle was such a gorgeous girl. We were all going through awkward stages together, but not Brielle. She was always the one the boys fell in love with. She was also an amazing athlete. We were all so jealous because she was always the color war captain, but she deserved it. She was a role model to everyone. She was the girl everybody always wanted to be. You have no idea how many times younger campers, most of who I didn’t even know, talked about Brielle this past summer because she was such a legend. I could always count on her to make me laugh, even this summer when she visited and brought us a blow up friend. I’m thankful for the memories she gave me, and I am thankful for knowing her. Brielle I will never forget you I miss you so much. love you. (04/06/08)

Kim Bartner I've looked at this blog so many times but havent been able to write. It's hard, really hard. Brielle was my best friend. In all honesty i can't really remeber camp before she and i became friends. Everyday walking home from school i get a pit in my stomach that i cant make go away, its because that time everyday i would call her. we would talk and shed usually be going to a basketball game or in the locker room with her team getting ready for practice. shed always get so distracted and tell me to hold on and then shed talk and listen to whatever i had to say even with all the comotion in the background. i could sit here and write for hours about all the things brielle and i did together. all the things we did mean the world to me. i think about her every day and i cry too but then when i cry i think of all those times shed come up to me in camp when i was crying and shed jump on me say, "whats wrong boo boo, dont cry pookie" and she make these noises and do what ever she could to make me laugh. Brielle is an amazing girl. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have her as my best friend. love you cupcake and miss you so much. you mean the world to me. xoxoxo BEST FRIENDS ALWAYS (04/06/08)

anonymous I just read about Brielle in the Trenton Times and as I sit here at 1:00 a.m. I cannot begin to imagine what her family is going through.I did not know her or her family but this has touched me in such a way - I feel like going into my childrens' rooms right now while they sleep and wake them up just to tell them how much I love them. To her family - may God be with you - she is a beautiful, beautiful girl and you must be so proud of everything she has given this world. May you find comfort in your darkest hours. Thank you for sharing your story about your precious child. (04/07/08)

George M. I just read about Brielle in the Star Ledger. I didn't know her but somebody close to the family brought her up at our prayer group the day after she passed and we all cried. She was a really special girl. It was obvious that God needed this angel's help and that is why he took her so early in her life. God Bless Amanda and her parents during their mourning. (04/07/08)

Big Sister Amanda Hey baby its another day and your not here. Last nite I was crying to Anthony telling him all the good things about you. I LOVE YOU BABY GIRL MY LIFE MWA (04/07/08)

Diane Pineda Bri Bri baby you were the most amazing girl I have ever met in my life. Ever since we were 5 years old playing on the same rec soccer team the angels in the light blue jerseys I have always looked up to you. We have played sports together through the years. No matter what the sport I always thought to myself if I just run a little faster or get back on defense and not have any moment of weakness on the field maybe I can be like Brielle. You never gave up on anything you always gave your 110% at whatever it was you were doing and Ive always wanted to be like you. I promise you pretty girl whenever I step on a soccer field or the basketball court I know your always going to be there with me and I am going to give 110% because I know thats what you would do. Every game that I ever play is going to be for you I love you so much and I miss you so muchh you have no ideaa. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me girlie. You are always in our heart...forever<3 (03/29/08)

Michele Campisi Brielle, I went to see your Mom, Dad and Amanda last night and I could still feel you in the house. Your strength and your spirit are everywhere. The love they have for you keeps you alive in their hearts and ours. Do you see how much you're missed? We are better people because we knew you. (03/29/08)

ALWAYS Good morning. It is truly a great honor for me to speak today about such a wonderful person, and I would like to thank the Namer family for inviting me to say a few words about Brielle. My name is Ian Matten, and I am the varsity girls basketball coach at Livingston High School. I am up here today knowing that all of the coaches in Brielle’s life would echo many of the same thoughts that I am about to say. From her middle school coaches Coreen Decker, Katie Smith, Rich Shue, Kathy Tuvey and Karl Quillen to her high school coaches Dave Cohen, Scott Cohen, Mike Cullen, Paul Raiz, Bert Dominguez, Mel Telesnick and John Waddon, along with many others who coached Brielle along the way are especially the people who can truly understand and appreciate Brielle’s tenacity, work ethic and tremendous will that she displayed on the field and court. My last year as a boys basketball assistant was Brielle’s first on the varsity girls team. I remember noticing how hard she practiced and played in the games that I watched… and I also remember that she was constantly on the floor! She got bounced around a lot that season, but she came back stronger each time. Her sophomore year was my first as a head coach. I realized, the first moment that I officially met her, that she was going to be something special. You see, Brielle had a wonderful “motor” that ran at full speed at all times. She rebounded against bigger girls, drove hard to the basket (sometimes through 3 defenders!) and was always encouraging her teammates with the strong words of a leader. This past season was very tough right from last spring. We were upset to learn of Brielle’s illness last April, but immediately, there was never a question in her mind that she would recover in time to play basketball. It was the light at the end of a long tunnel that she was facing. But Brielle never complained, she just went through the treatments, did her schoolwork so that she would not fall behind, and told everyone who would listen about her goal to play basketball. Prior to the start of the season, she was named a captain, and a few weeks before Thanksgiving, she was feeling great and ready to go. At that point, she experienced a set-back, and, although she was initially disappointed, Brielle STILL would not give up on her goal of playing this season. In early December, Brielle came to practice after receiving a chemotherapy treatment that afternoon. She lit up the gym when she walked in, stating that she was going to practice with us. The intravenous tube was still sticking out of her arm, but she just taped it down and started to get ready! The image of Brielle sitting and stretching that day has been burned in my mind forever. As she began to do some shooting drills, she resembled the same old Brielle, having fun while trying to be the best player in the gym, all the while saying, “My Mom is going to KILL me for doing this…” Later on that night, Brielle confessed to Brandi that she had practiced, and when she was asked why, her reply was typical of who she was… “Mom, I had to.” Once the season started and Brielle could not play, she came to as many practices and games as she could, always exhorting her teammates to play harder. Before our December 18th home game against Morris Knolls, she prepared a speech, and asked if she could talk to the team before the game. She spoke about perseverance and how, although it seemed hard at times, playing basketball was in fact not hard at all. Brielle said their were worse things in life than being a little tired, and because of what she was going through, she reminded her teammates not to take anything for granted. That speech changed me as a person, and was, in many ways, truly inspirational. She spoke to the team one more time, after a loss to Randolph. She could hardly walk at that point, but she was fired-up when she entered the locker room. Brielle said there was no excuse for there being three Randolph players fighting for a rebound while there was no Livingston player in sight. She scolded every kid, one through ten, for not playing hard enough that night. Hearing and seeing her passion, even through her pain, was another life-changing moment for all of us. Yesterday, the Namers gave me posters that Brielle made for her teammates. She drew-up all of our offensive sets and wrote notes to help the girls remember where to go. She had them laminated, and then attached Velcro so that we can use felt numbers and basketballs to show player movements. The posters are a treasure, and will be displayed in our team room next season. All she wanted was for her team to succeed, no matter what else was going on in her life. On Tuesday night, before sports awards, Brielle and I had a very nice visit. We spoke of her birthday and she lit up at the thought of all of her friends coming to her house. Brielle said thank you when I presented her with her varsity bar and her star pin that signified that she was our captain. It was obvious how happy she was to have them, and I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to give them to her that night. I leave you this morning with one final story. Once again, you will hear a lesson that we should all remember, one taught to us by Brielle. Whenever we spoke or texted, I reminded her that she was a superior athlete, and to always keep fighting. On Tuesday night, as I left, I tapped her arm and leaned over, asking her, “Hey Brielle, are you still fighting?” She replied, “Always.” So, that will now remind me forever how I should live my life, and all of you should do the same. Smile, have fun, work hard, and, if something in your life becomes hard, be like Brielle and KEEP FIGHTING… ALWAYS. Thank You. (03/30/08)

AMANDA NAMER I LOVE U BRIELLE AND MISS YOU. MATTEN I LOVED UR SPEECH (04/01/08)

Melissa STein i will never forget the six summers i spent with you at starlight. those memories of you falling through your bunk bed, schooling people in sports, not being able to dance and being the first one to fall asleep every night will remain with me forever. originally we did not get along, out of pure jealousy on my side, but we forgot about that and became very close. i have never met someone in life that was so committed to what they did, you never gave up in a game even if everyone else did. You also didnt have one mean bone in your body, you were nice to every camper which was good, but attracted all those little girls to our bunk. i hope i can be half the person you were in the future. i will never stop thinking about you. i love you and miss you. p.s. every time i hear the singing fish i will think of you :) (04/03/08)

robert fagan SORRY FOR YOUR LOSE I LOST MY SISTER TO CANCER I FEEL FOR YOU I MISS MY SISTER SOOO MUCH SHE WAS MY WIND BENEATH MY WINGS,,,,,,,,,,,,,GOD BLESS (04/06/08)

Sharonda I heard about this young women's passing from a friend, her daughter attended school with Briel. My heart goes out to you, I can tell from all the messages that she was and will always be a special person to all she came in contact with. May God continue to walk with you through this journey. (04/09/08)

Marie Amanda, I am a parent at LHS and just knew your sister just briefly but I can certainly tell you that she was an amazing young lady. I find it hard to grasp that someone your age is going through such pain and even tormet that you are experiencing now. My heart breaks for you. All I can say is that your sister touched all of our lives. Her grace in her pain has taught even the oldest of us how to be better people and better parents. While there is certainly no reason for her leaving you, she left behind a whole town and community of people who will rememeber her forever. I wish I could take some of your pain away - you are too young to suffer so very much. Amanda, you too are teaching us how high the human spirit can go by being so forthcoming in sharing your suffering. Keep this blog going so that we can continue to support you on your dark days. You deserve a shoulder to cry on too. Marie (05/05/08)

Amanda Namer I MISS U BABY SISTER YOU WERE AN AMAZIN GIRL AND SISTER YOU WILL NEVER BE NOT IN MY HEART I LOVE U BABY GIRL (03/12/08)

Mom You are probably thinking what is going on? My shy, quiet girl is getting such a huge amount of attention. I just wanted to let you know that although you always tried to blend in and not stand out--- It was impossible. You always said I thought you were the best because I am Mom. But it's not true. I have always been sooo proud of you, you always conducted yourself with grace and dignity, and above all kindness and love. The secret was never a secret. Everyone you knew saw all this and more in you. They just let you slide so that you weren't embarrassed. It is unbelievable that so many have been inspired by you to do such nice things as a tribute to you. I bet you are shocked as you liked to be under the radar. It's okay, we are all so honored that you and only someone as SPECIAL as you could create such a stir. It's like I always said and always will say- YOU ARE AND WILL ALWAYS BE AN ORIGINAL. We love and miss you so very much. You have my heart with you all the time. Luv you. (05/22/08)

ANON Amanda, Your poem took my breath away! Amazing! (07/16/08)

Coreen decker There is never a day that passes that I don't think of Brielle. She was the most inspirational student and person I have ever met. She will always have a special place in my heart. To her family: you are always in my thoughts and prayers. (03/04/11)

DMF As someone who has lost many close friends including my 2 best friends in life, I certainly understand what Brielle's friends experienced. All I can say, from a (now) parent's standpoint, we love you more than you love us; and you are not indestructable. Please never forget that. (03/12/08)

Candi Cooper My beautiful baby, you have no idea how many people you have touched in your lifetime, how many lives you have changed forever, just by being you. You are that amazing! You have no idea of how much I love you. You will be with me FOREVER. Words cannot express what I feel at this moment, just know that I will always be with you. Love You Forever Aunt Candi (03/13/08)

Victor 13 Brielle - I am with your family everyday and I want you to know that their entire world and their daily activities will always be with you included. You are definately a ONE of a kind person, and everyone you met is suffering from losing you. Courage, kind, sincere, dedicated, loyal, and loving are the first words that come to mind to describe you. You will NEVER be forgotten. I hope people can learn from you and your actions.I will cherish you forever. (03/20/08)

DAD To my little girl you gave me such happiness in everything you done .You are my best friend and always will be until we are together again . i will always be there for you .Thank you for being you.I would not have changed a thing. i could't have ask for the time we had to be any better you gave me love and life .I LOVE YOU XOXOXOXO DADDY (03/20/08)

Coreen Decker There has never been a student, an athlete, a person to touch my life so profoundly. There was something in her being that made me think that I should be paying attention. Little did I know that she was the teacher and I was the student. She lived life greater than anyone I know. I have learned many lessons from her, and I hope to live my life making her proud. (03/21/08)

Big Sister I miss you baby im sitting here crying thinking of you I cant do this without you I honestly cant. I miss you so much baby come back to me ... (03/23/08)

Olivia Brielle Namer changed my life, I wouldn't trade one moment we spent together for anything in the world. I'm so lucky to have had this girl as my very best friend. I'm thinking of you always and wish you could be with me right now, I miss you pookie and while ur up there..remember to strut bri bri, strut (03/27/08)

Profile

Brielle


Brielle Morgan Namer was born on March 8,1991. She was always in a hurry to catch up and do whatever her sister Amanda was able to do. So Brielle walked, learned to swim, talked, did practically everything at an early age so she could be like her big sister. Brielle was very fortunate, she excelled at all sports, got great grades, and was so unaware of her grace and beauty. Family was the most important thing to Brielle. When she was with her Dad she was everything he ever dreamed of and a best friend. When she was with her Mom, she was warm, sincere, loving, and her Mom's best friend and confidant. When she was with her sister, she was caring, they shared, argued, but above all they talked about everything and they had a relationship that went beyond the normal one. They were best friends and truly loved each other. Neither one was ever jealous of the other, as they both knew they had each other and the love of their parents equally. Amanda supported Brielle in all her goals, and Br ielle supported Amanda's. Family trips were always wonderful as both girls appreciated being with their parents, and that is what a true family trip is about. Brielle went to camp Starlight in the summers. She loved her time there. She made friends that were carved in her heart forever. Brielle even enjoyed school, which is weird , but it is because she loved to learn and she loved her friends, and she played on the basketball and soccer teams. Brielle's attitude was never take anything or anyone for granted. In all she did in her life she gave it 100%. She always played her best when on a field or court. She always encouraged others to do the same. Brielle was always there for anyone who ever needed her. It didn't matter if it was about sports, school, friends, she was the one person everyone knew they could depend on. People would always compliment her on her looks, and she would come home and say it was crazy. She never saw herself as a beautiful young woman, she considered hersel f as just normal. She never knew that she was so beautiful on the inside, as well as the outside. She was always worried about not being good enough. That's what always drove her to study more, practice more, and to always be loyal to people. The one thing that Brielle really hated was mean, shallow, inconsiderate people. She would never say too much, but she just didn't understand how people couldn't just be polite or kind . She always said it takes so much more energy to be mean, there's no reason for it. Loyalty was a priority to Brielle. If you say something then do it, don't be a phony. Brielle was a true, and loyal friend, respectful of her elders, a person who helped someone in need. But what made Brielle stand out above all the rest was her LOVE for her family, and her LOVE for life. When God made Brielle the mold was broken. There will never be a more loving, kind perfect person like her. I hope that she leaves an impact on others, so that they can try and carry on her legac y. This profile of Brielle would not be complete if Victor her English Springer Spaniel was not mentioned. As odd as it might sound, those who knew her well, know it's the truth. Brielle would stay home on a Friday or Saturday night, and not go out with her friends just to be with Victor. He was her best friend, he is 13 years old now, and when she wasn't around he would cry and be very sad. So many nights he would climb into her bed, she would set him up with pillows and blankets, and they would watch television together. It made his day, and now Victor goes into her room almost everyday and just sits and cries. Brielle really had no idea just how special she was and will always be to so many. I hope that if you were lucky enough to have known her, then you will try hard to live your lives as Brielle would if she had the chance. Be kind, considerate, loyal, and above all respect and treasure what you have as it is a gift.
Brielle was a gift to us all.
