Brianna Daniels

On Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 8:05 AM Brianna Renee Daniels received her reward of eternal rest embraced by her Father and Mother following a long, courageous and inspiring battle with cancer.

Born November 10, 1997, Brianna was always full of life and joy. She attended Texas City School District where she excelled at all grade levels.  Brianna received numerous academic awards including "A" honor rolls; Commended performances for TAKS; three time recipient of the Superintendent's Academic Achievement Award; member of the Northside Elementary Student Council; and Blocker Middle School National Junior Honor Society. Many times she was unable to attend consecutive "classes" with her peers as she would have liked, after being diagnosed with cancer but she would make appearances when she was able. She had the pleasure of having Ms. Mary Catherine Guisti as her loving homebound teacher and the support of the entire district. Brianna always loved and appreciated all of her classmates and teachers at Northside, Levi Fry, and Blocker.


Brianna always had a positive out look on life and walked thru it with a smile, no matter the circumstance. We absolutely, without a doubt, knew that our baby girl, Brianna Renee Daniels, was sent to us from our Heavenly Father to change our lives. She has been doing just that, and the lives of others, every since her birth.  Brianna was a pure soul that loved everyone.  She wanted everyone to live, love and interact in perfect harmony. She definitely strived for that and could not understand why it could not always be that way. Brianna's life has touched the hearts of so many people without knowing she was touching them. She was always wanting and saying that she wanted to make a difference in this world. Brianna is undeniably irreplaceable and unforgettable. We are eternally grateful for all the love that she showed and gave us. All the praise and all the glory goes to Jehovah God for blessing my family with such a beautiful soul.

Brianna will be dearly missed by her loving and protective father, Rodrick Wayne Daniels Sr.; her loving Mother, Irene Lee Daniels; her only beloved sister, Serena Nicole Daniels; her loving older brothers, Rodrick Wayne Daniels Jr., Sterling Lee, and John Anthony Guerrero. She was preceeded in death by her grandparents, Robert Sr. and Connie Daniels and great grandfather, Rip Porter. She will be missed by her grandparents, Juan and Beatriz Guerrero; great grandparents, Pablo and Evangelina Tello; aunts and uncles, Robert and Angela Daniels, Kresha Taylor, Ronald Daniels, Ericka Bell, Ricky and Lisa Guerrero, Johnny and Meagan Guerrero, Beatriz Guerrero;cousins, Taylor, Nickolas, Noah,Nyah, Jeremy, Josh, Kailey, Christian, Angelica and Raymond and an abundance of great uncles, great aunts, great cousins, friends and teachers.
