I just read about this in the paper and I'm extremely saddened to hear it. Britney was a student of mine. The last time I saw her was at NSCC in the spring and I was so happy to see she was planning on furthering her education. Really sad. She was a ball of energy and sometimes a tough kid, but we got along well and I really liked her...

I'm still in shock, because i knew Britney from Middle school and we use to go to the Boys & Girls Club together and we weren't best friends but we use to talk to each other a lot and had a lot of classes together, after middle school I didn't her as much but i would see her here and there but this is the last thing I expected to happen to her and shes was a good person yeah she was a little hard headed at times but who isn't? Well I just hav to wait for my time to see her again.. R.I.P. Britney Galindez.

Britney will be missed by all who have had the chance to know her, She had dreams and wanted to better her life for herself. She reached out to many and many did not see, I wish that "we" her family could have stepped in sooner and helped her. I only pray that no other parent, grandparent, sister, brother, aunt,and uncle well never have to endure a pain such as this. This is such a traggic loss for all of her friends and family. I pray that GOD helps Sherry (britneys Mother) Through this difficult time.

I had Britney as a student in Middle School. My heartfelt sympathies go out to her family. She was a WONDERFUL kid, and brightened my day. When I heard about this horrible tragedy, my heart broke. I will never forget her voice, and her bouncing into the room. I will never forget her. I thought of her last week because I knew that today would have been her 18th birthday. Happy Birthday Britney. I love you! I'll work even harder because of you.

Britney was a student of mine at Ingraham. She was a girl full of spirit and compassion. I loved having her in class, and missed her when she dropped out last spring. This was a senseless tragedy and a sad end to a girl with so many dreams. She will be missed.

I just stumbled upon this article by chance and it broke my heart. I used to be childhood friends with Britney's biological Father. I remember when she was born, her Father was so very proud of his Baby girl. I just want to send my heartfelt condolences to Britney's Family and friends . I can't imagine the emptiness and pain of losing an Angel. Please God Bless the family and friends with knowing that she is smiling down upon them and knows nothing but happiness as an Angel in Gods arms. R.I.P. babygirl.
