Bree's Memorial Bench & Tree Fund

                           Hello Friends and Family!
Please, help us raise money for a Memorial Bench and Tree to be planted in Dellwood Park in Lockport, IL, to honor Breanne's beautiful Life & Soul. Bree loved helping others! Even upon her "Angel Day", Bree donated her organs in order to help other people get a "Second chance at Life". What an amazing gift that she gave and so unselfishly, too!! We're very proud of you, Breanne! So, now is your chance to help remember her spirit and what she gave back to humanity!
We don't know what our purpose is here while on this earth. So we need to try to lead a good life, be kind to one another, and in some small way give back to humanity. Bree loved life and she loved all kinds of people! Just look at the diversity in her friends. She had a passion for helping people! She was studying to be an Nurse. Bree was already a CNA and really liked working with her clients/patients. She enjoyed making them feel better even if it was for a short time,during her shift. Breanne was a hard worker and took pride in her work. She was pretty much a perfectionist! LOL
Bree's other passion was for animals! She loved her dogs(Chloe & Gizmo) and cat(Nala), they were her children. Upon Bree's "Angel Day", we were able to keep her dog Gizmo, we already were taking care of Nala, and we found a good home for Chloe. Thank goodness they're all doing well! Breanne loved her music and loved to dance. She like to write poems and rhyme words. She was a avid basketball player and follower of the Chicago Bulls, her favorite player was who else but D Rose-of course! Ha! Bree was quite the competitor, too. She loved a good challenge and would like to prove you wrong!
We all miss Breanne with all our hearts! We know that we WILL see her again someday, but NOT yet! Bree will FOREVER be in our Hearts and she'll NEVER be forgotten. Bree had a few tattoo's on her body and one in particular stands out to's the beautiful fairy on her side that is blowing pixie dust all the way up from her side to her neck with the words "Believe in your dreams". She lived by those words and she was acheiving her dreams! Also, one of her favorite quote's that she had in her home: Live well, Laugh often and Love much!
If you find it in your heart and you're able to help us out in achieving our goal, we deeply appreciate it! Every donation counts, every donation is welcome! You can donate here on this site or you can send your donation to Teri and Steve Conterio(Bree's parents) and we'll make sure that we include your donation here as an off-line donation. We're hoping to reach our goal by spring, so that we can have both the bench and the tree planted at that time. In the future we'll be able to have Bree's remembrance balloon launches from her bench site! How exciting and I know she'd be loving it too! Everyone will be able to come visit her bench and/or tree in the park and remember all the fun times you had with Bree and a Life so Beautiful! Thank you for visiting and Thank you in advance for your donation! God Bless (((HUGS)))
Sincerely, Simone, Teri & Steve Conterio
