Brittany met the love of her life Jarret Cook in 2005 at a school dance. They were the proud parents of Kayonna and Jayden. Brittany’s children were her whole world and she was the best mother she could be to her kids.  She loved spending time with them and loved hearing about their day and what they were doing.
