To Kelsey I am so sorry for your death. I wish your mindless stepfather hadn't abused you for we would have been the same age. I also wish your mom hadn't let go through this on your own and that she hadn't have encouraged him to abuse you. I am also very grateful for your grandparents that helped you live. But thank you for being such a great girl. I love you. Xxx xxx xxx xxx. Close

Not a doubt in my mind, as to how Kelsey was faile / Ange (just someone who cares )
I have read...again the book called tug of war from the judge who was presiding over the custodial rights to Kelsey...I am appalled how the liars that are supposed to be family behaved so grossely negligent in the welfare of a childs safety. Everyone should read it...So many mistruths were told..A little girl will never go to kindergarten, never grow into a teen, have a first date, marry, have her own children...NEVER! Why? Its all because families chose to not work together to make a safe, fun filled happy home for a little girl who's life was taken away from her. What right does anyone have to hurt a child????? The guilty parties know who they are, whether they take responsibility for bad choices is up to them....They will have to live with their decision. My heart goes out to Kelsey...she is the only victim in this sad story of abuse. May she feel the love & comfort of all those who truly care & love a little girl who never stood a chance <3<3<3 Close
an angel treated so badly / Angela Nicoll (none)
I stumbled across this story a good few years ago and it has haunted me ever since? How anyone can hurt a child is beyond me but kelseys story has always stuck in my mind for no particular reason there are hundreds of children abused everyday but heartbreakingly we cant always stop it. Close

I just wanted to offer my condolences. I read about her on Facebook. She was about my daughter age. It made me very said that someone can take such a beautiful little girls life when she had so much ahead of her. Close

This story broke my heart / Sarah H. (Stranger)
This book was left at my house by a friend. i picked it up and started reading it. I had tears in my eyes throughout the book. The Briggs family is in my prayers as I know they still have a long road of recovery ahead of them. The Briggs family did everything they could to try to save that precious little angel but the state kept hindering their cries for help for the little girl. My heart cries for Lance at the heartache he feels...Please know there are people out there that are not related to the case but are on the Briggs family side...What happened to beautiful little Kelsey never should have happened if the government offices involved would have taken Mrs. Kathie Briggs serious...Y'all are in my prayers.
dearest little girl = in my heart forever / Shayne Arkley (no relation )
I live in Tasmania and I have just read some of the stories of little ones like Kelsey. I am 60 years of age and a big, tuff ex boxer. I can hardly see to write right now because of the tears and my wife has asked me to please stop looking at the photos of this beautiful little angel as I find it so sad. I will never understand any of it. I find myself wishing and praying that I had been there to protect her and all the others and would gladly give my life to have been able to do so.
I would think that I share the same sorts of feelings that everyone who knows about this little angel would feel. How unbearable it must be for those who had held her, played with her, heard her little voice and know the suffering and pain she went through. They are the most beautiful photos and to think that she has gone from this world is unbearable.
I do so hope there is a heaven and they are all there.
Reading about Kelsey and all those other beautiful, defensless little angels has changed my life forever and I will be forever vigilant of my own little angels.
I thank you for this page and the opportunity to express a little of how Kelsey has affected my life and may we all do whatever is required to make the world free of the monsters that rob us of the joy of having them in our lives. I will remember them all forever and I will remember Kelsey forever she has given strength and inspiration and showed me a way to truly love and appreciate those in my life. Bless you little Kelsey Briggs and I will love you and miss you forever.

Such a tragic ending for such a beautifu little gir but I'm glad that she doesn't have to suffer anymore. I admire this little girl for being so brave and fighting for so long for being so little. I want to give my condolences to the friends and family that loved this little girl and especialy to her father. I think of her story daily and send prayers out to the family. R.I.P. baby girl Close

You touched my heart Kelsey Briggs / Celisa Godwin (a loving stranger )
Since the first time I ever read about you like 5 years ago, you touched my heart and the heart of so many others. Everytime I read your story I cry and cry because I dont understand how anybody could do this to such a precious angel and how dont understand how you were ever let back in that house. I am so sorry to your family(and Mr. Briggs I couldnt imagine the pain you are in even to this day but you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers everyday and everyone else that has ever read your story) and I know that you are shinning down on them from heaven.

SORRY ... / Samantha Nuon (A stranger but now a friend always )
God bless you for keeping Kelsey's memory alive. She will forever live on in our memories. Sorry sweet baby angel the system failed you. It angers me beyond words that it was allowed to happen! I hope and pray that this story is read and a message is learnt. We must be the voice for the voiceless. How can anyone harm an innocent child! What kind of monster can do that! It’s even harder to comprehend that it is by the hands of those that should be there to protect and love her. RIP angel no more shall you feel pain.
