My heart is beyond broken. I don’t have the words to express how sorry I am that this has happen. I am sending love to you and your family, Shannon.

My deepest condolences to the McDonald Family! Words can’t replace the pain of losing a loved one; gone to soon. The memories of Brittnee will live forever in your heart. Shannon, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I worked with Brittnee at Saint Luke’s in the ICU. She was an amazing nurse that cared for so many. She was caring for dying COVID patients every shift during the height of the pandemic. She was also working on her Master’s on her days off. At work she was the strong, diligent, nurse that tended to her patients and did not participate in negative gossip or complaining. I was so happy for Brittnee when she got her job at Children’s Mercy. No one deserved for her dreams to come true more than Brittnee. I know Drue was working to make those dreams come true by making her his wife and partner. Brittnee had a light in her eyes when Drue was around and you could sense the love they shared. I take a small shred of solice in knowing that Brittnee smiled a lot in her 31 short years. She has many friends and family that love her. She spent time with the ones she loved. She pursued a career helping others. She lived a beautiful life I will never forget you Brittnee.

Our hearts are broken. Brittnee was such a wonderful nurse and made such a difference in the ICU at Saint Luke’s East over the years, especially during the pandemic. Her ICU family will forever remember her beautiful smile and laughter. Her young life and sweet spirit touched so many.
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

I was so lucky to have worked with Brittnee for such an all too short period of time at Children’s Mercy. We were all devastated when he got the news on Tuesday and we all had Brittnee stories to share despite her short time with us. We have all commented on how we will never forget the image of her pony tail flip and her heart warming smile that was always present. She was a quiet observer who was just starting to come out and really feel comfortable with her new work family. We also shared our love for French Bulldogs and she helped me make a “birth announcement” to put on our “baby board” (that was previously just human babies :-)) her last day we worked in the clinic together. It breaks my heart, and the hearts of my fellow co-workers at CMH, that we had such a tragically short time with her. Our love and prayers to her family and friends.

Shannon, my heart is saddened with the news of the loss of your daughter. I have been praying for you and your family. You are a beautiful person with a kind spirit and although she may be in the arms of Jesus, your memories will live forever. Her impact in the lives of others will carry on. Thinking of you.
Lovingly submitted,

Shannon and family, sending sincere condolences, healing thoughts and peace to you all. She will live forever in your hearts and memories. So sorry for your loss.
With love,
Jenny Stirling

Brittnee was my best friend growing up. She was funny, beautiful, and she had the best laugh. I can’t remember what it was like to be a kid and not have her there. We spent every moment we could together when we were younger, we dressed alike, she used to call us parallel universe twins because it felt like we were the same person. I feel really lucky to have known and loved her, and I am so grateful to have those memories of her.

Brittnee your legacy in life was one that left a footprint of genuine love and caring for others! This is not goodbye, as we will see each other someday again and worship at the feet of Christ together! May God keep your family in the palm of His hand and bring them comfort during the most difficult of days.

My condolences to the family! I worked with Brittnee at Saint Luke’s East in the ICU. She always had a huge smile! She was always helpful and a beautiful soul! She loved talking about the Chiefs! Miss you friend!

I’m so sorry I couldn’t make it today. I’ve been Blessed to have known Brittnee for over 6yrs as a Co-Worker… This pains my heart. She always seemed so laid back and chill and I loved her laugh. My thoughts and Prayers are with you.

Shannon and Family. I wish there were words to take away all the hurt that you have experienced. I pray that God will show his love to you in the days to come. From a time long ago I remember Brittnee visiting Santa and the wonderment in her eyes, To see all that she has accomplished from that time is a true inspiration. You all will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers with each passing day.

My prayer for all who were so deeply devastated by this loss, is that you can find solace in each other and be lifted up by the love you shared for, Brittnee. In my work with her at, St Lukes ICU, I experienced the most lovely, light-hearted young lady. Her smile was, as they say, infectious, and she had the softest, sweetest demeanor. I pray God’s blessings for you in your time of such deep sorrow.
