BrynnLey Sage Jo Blair was born June 14, 2016, in Billings the daughter of Jacob and KayLoni (Bybee) Blair. She joined one sister (Cambria) and two brothers (Jonah, Mark). When BrynnLey was two her younger sister, Abi Jo, joined the family and she was thrilled to be a big sister especially enjoying Abi singing to her. All of BrynnLey’s siblings were special care givers of her and very protective.

Although her life was short on this earth, it was full of many enjoyable activities with her loving families. She enjoyed music, especially her dad playing guitar as her mother sang. The sound of wind in the trees, feeding birds and camping were also things she enjoyed. Her hair was her pride and joy. She was definitely a “papa’s girl” with all her papas; Mickey Mouse was a favorite and she enjoyed playing with her many cousins and other children in Kindergarten.

No matter what trial or challenge BrynnLey went through she always had a smile and we know BrynnLey wants us to remember her strength and follow her example of hope and love.
