Annie Laura Brittain

Annie Laura Brittain

Annie Laura Brittain was born October 4, 1981, in Los Angeles County, California. Continuously moving about the country, sometimes with her family and at other times alone, she experienced America--its beauty and its people. Wherever she landed, she was simply Annie—artistic, loving,strong, different, friendly, intelligent, generous, thoughtful, determined, non-judgmental, and truly unforgettable. She was a waitress with a smile that riveled Julia Roberts.

Annie has painted her last landscape, written her last poem, and served her last table. She died November 30, 2005, at age twenty-four. Her ashes are buried in Henry Cemetery in Corinth, Mississippi.

She left behind Janet Ambrose (mother), Joe Brittain (father), Azalee Brittain (sister), James and Stephanie Brittain (brother and sister-in-law), James Basil and Azalee Ambrose (grandparents), and lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Why? Why did I not know who WE were then?
by: Lyon Charles

No, I can't move, drink, swallow, anything. Why didn't I know who we were then?
A lot of people know how much I loved Annie. She was my best friend. She died a horrible death, but it was fast.
She was beautiful, but special.
I wish I knew then what I know now.
Do you know that she died when my manager Frank Stiefel died?
I was in so much pain, all alone in Los Angeles, California. I am still alone.

"Annie was just like, the Great Dark Wing, within the wings of a storm."
"I go anywhere, Annie where? Any way!"
Lyrics to Sara by Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac.
It talks about Annie. Even though it was long ago it came out. Music does weird things like that sometimes.
I pray God save my soul. I pray that I give my love to a good woman or girl, that I should have gave to Annie. I wanted to marry her, but could not deal with some men around her, or some things we all deal with at those ages.
Please, if you see me, talk to me about Annie. Thank you for this page.
Annie will always be part of my life, and that hurts me to say it, as much as i....

To her family, I will never leave. I am asking God to please keep me, and keep my presence in yours, Annie's memory, for ever. I am a good man. I have since started Lithium and Paxil, and am free from drugs and alcohol. I was never as bad as Annie, but she was just special by GOD that way. She is in heaven.
I saw her in a dream.

Dear Terri and Anonymous,
So sweet of you to offer me your thoughts and prayers when the deaths of your own children is so very fresh. To answer your question, Terri, the pain never goes away and stays away, but you will become much stronger with time. When our children die, we change dramatically and forever. I've heard several people say the death of a child makes a parent either better or bitter. If I were to become bitter, I would be allowing Satan to control me. If I become better, I glorify God. My prayers are with you and your families.

She Was Beautiful
by: Anonymous

I just lost my son Erik who was 30 and I know your pain. My prayers are with you and hope things are better for you now. I am looking for answers and don't know where to turn. I'm dying inside for my son and your beautiful daughter.
