6 weeks today…..

by on Sep.15, 2010, under Thoughts and Feelings

You have been gone 6 weeks today. Has it really been that long already? How could time continue to move when you are not here to move with it? How could you just leave us and not even have given it a thought before you left? Do you realize how much we miss you? Do you even care that your baby sisters will NEVER get to have the opportunity to learn things from you? They will never get a chance to want to be just like their big sister, like they do with Ashley. You will never be able to teach them how to be a proper young lady. They will never get to see you get married. They will never get to say that they are your childrens aunts. They will never really get a chance to mourn you, because they never got a chance to know you. You will never get to go to their high school graduation, or help them get ready to go to the prom, or see the look on their face when they get their first car. Instead, maybe, one day they will get to visit you and put flowers on your headstone. THAT is the kind of relationship they will have with you because you chose to end an amazing life. You chose to make us all hurt and sad that you are gone. You chose to NOT let us in and know that you were hurting so badly. I am angry…not at you, but at your choice to take you away from us. But, with all that anger, there is 10 times the love. I will always love you the way that I did when I first found out about you. I remember the day you were born, and the day you died, but I will cherish all of the times between.

Rest in peace my angel on this 6 week mark of your passing. 6 weeks without you is a lifetime. I love you so very much.

Las Vegas Walk for Suicide Prevention

by on Sep.01, 2010, under Events

My family and I will be participating in the Las Vegas Walk for suicide prevention on February 5, 2011. We would greatly appeciate any and all support. That support can come in the form of a donation or you can join our team to walk with us! We would love to have as many loved ones with us as possible as we walk to celebrate my Brittanys life and to maybe prevent another parent from having to suffer this pain.

If you would like to donate, or join our team, I have posted the website information on this page under ‘Links and Friends’. Also, just in case you can’t find it, it’s here.

Thank you in advance for your love and support! We so much need it and appreciate it! We love you all!

Something needs to be said….

by on Sep.01, 2010, under Thoughts and Feelings

For all of you out there that have been hearing things about myself (Brittanys MOTHER) and Ashley, her sister, all I would like to say is that there definitely are 2 sides to every story. Most likely, the things that you are hearing are not true and are being fabricated by someone who may be feeling resentment against the 2 of us. The things that are being said are hateful and hurtful and will not be tolerated.

This page is to CELEBRATE the life that Brittany lived. I will not go into detail about the things that have been occurring since the death of my Brittany, but I will say that WE, her family, are hurting so much from not only the loss of our precious angel, but from the things that have happened. All we are asking for is time to mourn our loss, just as anyone else would. We are still in shock and disbelief that someone so full of light and life would choose to take the path she did just to end the pain and the hurt she was experiencing.

All I would ask from the responsible parties (and you know who you are) that are causing the heartache is to think about how Brittany would react if she knew how you were treating people that loved her so very much. Think about her and respect her memory.

This is the TRUE and ACCURATE obituary of Brittany Rebecca Helton, as she lived and as she passed. The obituary that has been listed in any other newspaper is not factual and is full of false statements by Brittany’s stepmother.

Brittany graduated from Muncy H.S. in 2009, where she was on the National Honor Roll and a member of the Key Club. She attended Lycoming College, where she was on the Dean’s List. She was a loving sister, daughter, granddaughter and friend. Brittany is survived by her mother and stepfather, Stacey L. Ackermann and Troy A. Ackermann, both of Las Vegas; sister and brother-in-law, Ashley and Jeff Lamb of Twentynine Palms, Calif.; sisters, Sheridan and Tristann Ackermann of Las Vegas; and grandparents, Mike and Sue White of Las Vegas.

Tidbits about Brittany…

by on Aug.14, 2010, under Thoughts and Feelings

My Brittany was born on July 3, 1991 at Nellis Air Force Base. We had just left El Paso after her father finished school and we were on leave here in Vegas. She was stubborn even before she was born! She was 3 weeks late and I was in labor with her for 33 hours. She was a BIG baby, weighing in a little over 8 lbs. She soon adopted the nickname ‘Chunky Monkey’! She was the cutest, fattest little thing who was a very happy baby! She was amazing and had the sweetest little smile. Her freckles came later on, and did they come on like gangbusters! (She gets those from me!!!)

She had a favorite baby and blanket that went EVERYWHERE with us! She would never let me wash them, so I would sneak in while she was napping and wash them and pull them out of the dryer before she even knew they were gone.
