The girl passed away in a driving and texting accident which left her family members shell shocked. Jeannie Brown the mother of the girl shared the experience of losing her lovely girl at a shockingly young age. The lady said recounting the experience of learning about the tragedy “The cell phone on which she had sent and receive over 10,000 text messages in the weeks preceding her accident was with her.”

On the eve of the teen’s death anniversary the Extreme Makeover team members gave a surprise to the Brown family by offering to rebuild their home which was almost crumbling. The family was touched and the inclusion of two popular teenage stars was the icing on the cake. Singer Justin Bieber showed his benevolent side at the program. He snapped pictures with the sister of the teen, Katrina Brown. The young girl said about her deceased sister “If Alex was here and seeing all this she would be so excited for us”.
