Brittney Marie Abney passed from this world to be with her Lord and Savior on December 3, 2011. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Brittney had touched in some way throughout her short, yet very memorable life.
Brittney's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her big smile, beautiful blue eyes, spunkiness, and devotion brought so much joy to her family and friends. Brittney didn't know how to say she was only your friend, she only knew to say you were her best friend.
Although, she was only on this earth for a short while she gave us all such courage, and hope. She reminded us of the preciousness of life as well. She loved to spend time with her family, friends, and especially her dog Ry-Ry.
Brittney is survived by her loving parents: Beau and Christy Abney, Julie and Patrick Gallagher Brothers: Alex , Tyler, and PJ Sisters: Kayla and Katie Grandparents: Dave and Sharon Ash, Diana Rich, Don and Adele Rich, Chris and Debbie Tisler, Juanita Gallagher, Aubrey and Scotty Knight, Doug Mutchler Aunts and Uncles: Barbara and Don Ferguson, Steve Rich, Diana and Ron Moon, Joyce and Larry Brown, Steve and Lori Dyke, Michael Abney, David Abney, Lonnie Freeman, Lena, Terri Lewondoski, Gary and Brenda Knight, Matt Mutchler, Stephanie and Garrett Memering, numerous cousins and her baby Ry-Ry.
