My first Grandchild was here for a short time-Brionna Levine died 9-25-10 in the NICU in Pittsburgh PA

 Brionnna Levine was born Augest 11th, 2010 and died September 25th 2010. Although she was only here a short time I had grown very attached as did many people who did not know her. It was irronic Brionna passed away on my daughters fathers birthday whome Kala never got to know by his choice.

Thank You

Many thanks go out to so many people who helped me in these last 2 months. Too Misha, if it wasn't for you, my car wouldn't have finished getting fixed for the rides to Pittsburgh.The money you gave me couldn't have came at a better time as I was running very low on cash.Thanks to LisaHW who wrote a hub dedicated to Brionna which lifted my spirits when I needed it. Too Mike Passmore, who had a benefit and raised money through the church. You knew me well and knew I wouldn't ask anyone I knew for money at the time. My mother instild a lot of pride in me that at the time in my life I had to overcome. Too my boss Dotty and Katy who took up a collection at work and Dotty for being there when my daughter delivered her baby in here in Bradford. Every time I ran into Ester, a housekeeper at my work, she would put 20$ in my pocket.I had a family member through marriage who owns a funeral home and did the funeral at cost and Thank god I had a mom who was willing to cover these expenses. So many people helped me in the time I needed it and I am sure I may have forgot someone but I cant thank everyone enough.

I think the tattoo is a touching tribute.

Sorry for the loss. She was very sick and suffering her entire life. It was unfair to force her to live. She's in a much better place.

You did try though, which should definitely help ease the pain for you.

kmackey, I'm humbled by the mention of the Hub, and if, in some tiny way, there was even a shred of anything that lifted your spirits, even a little, then I'm thankful for that. It's nice that you have people close by who are there for you at this time. The footprints are such a moving tribute to Brionna.
