October 30, 1983 - August 17, 2004
August 17, 2004 changed our lives forever as that is the day that our beautiful daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin and friend was taken so very suddenly by a drunk driver. Briana was a 20 year old vibrant college sophomore attending the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN and on the evening of August 16, 2004 while driving home she was hit and killed by a drunk driver. Her compassion for life and the love of her family and friends was truly evident in her beautiful smile. Something important to Briana was to be an organ donor and that unselfish wish gave the gift of life to many people and a piece of Briana lives on in all of them.
Briana's love for family and friends was evident in the way she lived her life and we miss her dearly!
With All Our Love, Her Family
