As I said before, there are not adequate words in the world to address your deep sadness, but your friends and family will certainly try to express what they feel for you and Briana's passing. Mike and I have just known you a brief time, but in it we have had the opportunity to share some of each other's struggles and triumphs as they relate to our children. I loved the quote in the video "fall down 7 times and get up 8." That is really what struggle is about - trying to rise from them. Struggle is certainly tragic, but not rising from them is the bigger tragedy. We will cherish our time here at Army North with you both and miss you when we retire to different parts of the country. You and Mark came here, made your mark and the place is much better for it. Thank you for your friendship and support. Let others be that support for you now. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." We pray comfort for you and the rest of your family and those who knew Briana best.

We never got the opportunity to meet Briana, but her parents spoke of her during our conversations. We have always admired this family. This evening we watched the tribute video, read messages, and we can tell that Briana was a very loved girl. What a beautiful smile and eyes that tell a tale in each picture - without the need for words. Our hearts are broken about your family's sadness, but we are assured, by Faith, that the video we just watched is just chapter one of this beautiful soul's story.

Mark, Barbara, and Mark Jr. , Chuck and I are so very sorry for your loss . I looked for just the right words to say. I searched poetry, stories, a Bible, and the Internet. Truth be told, there are no words that I can say that will take away your pain; however, you will have the memory of looking into her eyes and having taken in her smiles that will help to carry you through. The truth is it's just shouldn't be because her story was not finished yet. May all the good memories carry you. We love you.
Bartholomew & Mitchell Familes left a message on May 1, 2017:
Dear Barbara, Words cannot express our deepest sympathy in the passing of your daughter. I did not have the pleasure of knowing her but with you as her Mother she had to be a special young lady. When a parent buries a child you lose a part of you. People tell you time will heal but it might heal but the hurt does not go away. It is now 45years since Mark has left us and it seems like only yesterday. I wlll say when Karen blessed us with David it was like a light came into our lives. You start to see some of Marks traits in him. But everyone is there ownself. If you should ever want to just chat please I am only a phone call away. I have the same phone no and also you now have my e mail. Just remember all your good times and don't be afraid to talk about her when ever you want. Sometimes people are afraid to mention the passing because they do not know what to say.Please know t our love and prayers are with you and your family. Love, Moo

Billy McIntosh left a message on April 28, 2017:
I interviewed Briana on Skype a few weeks ago and we were so impressed by her bright and cheerful Erica Knoch personality, we hired her on the spot and she started work a week later. She fit right in and we all felt very fortunate to have found her. When Briana mentioned she wanted a place to live by herself with her 2 cats, I immediately asked my wife, a realtor, to begin hunting for a place as I new she make such a wonderful tenant. We can not be more saddened by this loss. On behalf of Tilton Enterprises, I want to express our sincere condolences to Briana's parents, brother, other family members and loved ones. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Billy McIntosh

I never actually met Briana but her infectious personality captured my son's attention. He was her Penpal and they became friends. They were talking with each other through her rehab. They were going to meet for the first time next week. Now, they will never get that chance. My deepest sympathy in the loss of your beautiful daughter, sister, grandchild. May Jesus wrap her in his loving arms and may He send you peace in this time of great sorrow.
