The Brittany Story
On June 28, 2004, Brittany Willis, a beautiful, bright, promising young woman was enjoying an uneventful summer afternoon returning a high school graduation present at a gift shop in Wilson, NC. Her life was suddenly and tragically cut short as she became a victim of horrific, random violence. This daughter, sister, granddaughter, and friend was a treasure, and her memory will forever be a part of the lives of those who knew and loved her.
