We are honored to be a sponsor of Hopeful Family Futures
This important event which holds a special place in our hearts. The BBMS Happy Children Memorial Fund is dedicated to celebrating the memory of Brianna Millard Smith. She was a beloved daughter who suffered from addiction and mental illness. Tragically, she was killed by a semi-truck in 2014 on why 138 near Llano, CA.
Brianna left behind a journal amid her struggles, a poignant testament to her love for her son, Daniel. She wrote in a moment of clarity, “I’m sorry I screwed up for so long! I hope that you can forgive me. All I want is to be your Mommy; I love you xoxoxo.”
Moved by Brianna’s words, Laurie Millard, Brianna’s mother, stepped up to raise Daniel. She provided him with unwavering love and dedication. Brianna was a very giving person who tried to help everyone she met. This has fueled Laurie’s mission to support families in recovery from addiction. Especially those starting over after leaving domestic violence situations.
Laurie understands children’s pain and confusion when addiction tears families apart. She is determined to ensure that no child ever has to ask the heartbreaking question, “Why was I not enough to keep them here?”
With the BBMS Happy Children Memorial Fund
Laurie aims to provide resources, support, and hope to families on their journey to recovery. By coming together at the fundraiser, we have shown our commitment to this cause and our belief in the power of love and community.
