During her brief time on Earth, she enjoyed playing peek-a-boo with her sisters, being read books to, wrapped up in her favorite blanket, held closely by her parents and family, and being told “I love you” an uncountable number of times . She is loved by all who met her and will be greatly missed.
In addition to her parents, Brilyn is survived by her big sisters, Charlotte and Leni; maternal grandparents, Scott and Nicole Stoltz; paternal grandparents Laura and Brian Anderson; great grandparents; many aunts and uncles; cousins; and other relatives and friends who loved Brilyn very much. She joins a host of family members who have gone before her including her maternal great grandpa Wes; and her paterntal great grandpa Owens, and great grandpa and grandma Anderson; they are no doubt welcoming her with open arms.
