Hundreds of people turned out to say good bye to Nixzmary Brown on the day of her memorial and funeral service. This story had been in the news almost every day and most of these people were strangers, people who never even knew her. Pouring their hearts out to this little Angel in ways her mother and stepfather never did.

"It touched everyone," 
Caridad Ramos Nixzmary's great aunt.

Nixzmary was finally laid to rest on January 18, 2006. The people of New York, her family as well as strangers, came to pay their respects to her and to tell her good bye. There was an open casket wake at the First Avenue Ortiz Funeral Home. Out of respect for Nixzmary, I will not be putting any pictures of her in her casket, on my site.









Nixzmary's family broke down at her grave site.

Reverend Robert O'Neil said that Nixzmary's nightmare was finally over:

"Nixzmary is now surrounded by love, beyond the touch of evil"




A float that paid tribute to abuse victims showed a picture of Nixzmary Brown. The float was placed so far back in the lineup that it was not one that was shown on television while it went up Fifth Avenue. That is so sad, this is a real problem and it deserves as much attention as any other float in the parade, even more, IN MY OWN OPINION!
