MTV star Diem Brown lost her long battle with cancer on Nov. 14, but she has been memorialized in a tear-jerking video tribute, which was shown at her funeral on Tuesday.
Brown passed away when she was just 32 years old, but from the video tribute it is clear that she lived her life to the fullest and made the most of every moment. The touching tribute opens with Ed Sheeran’s ballad “Kiss Me,” and begins with adorable family and baby photos before taking you on a journey through the bubbly blonde’s childhood years.
The video then explains how the Brown family moved to Ohio and then Roswell, where Brown attended high school. You can see how the former reality TV star grew from a sweet child into a beautiful young woman before the tribute moves on to Brown’s days as a Delta Gamma at Florida State University, where she passionately speaks about making life memories.
“These are the times you’re making life memories that you will never forget. These bonds are never broken and these sisters are part of your life forever,” she is heard saying in a video diary.
Then comes the star’s pursuit to follow her entertainment dreams and the caption reads, “After college, Diem moves cross-country to pursue a career in entertainment.” The clip then shows Brown’s enthusiasm as she reports on the red carpet, followed by her rise to fame on MTV’s The Challenge.
The tribute also depicts Brown’s long struggle with cancer and shows her unwavering positive attitude, gratitude to those who helped her, her infectious smile and her fighting spirit.
“Do everything,” she says in a video clip montage. “Don’t take any moment for granted. Just go for it, do it. Because you’re going to experience so much.”
According to People magazine, when the video was shown at the church on Tuesday, everyone was left in tears.
Whether you knew Brown, or not, this tribute will truly touch your heart.
