Celebrating the life of Breanna Moore

ANCHORAGE –

“She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten” read a sign placed next to Breanna Moore’s picture at her celebration of life ceremony Tuesday night.

Family and friends gathered to honor the life that was taken from them last week. Captured moments spanning 20 years of Moore’s life played before a gathering of broken hearts that have all been touched by her. There wasn’t an empty seat, or space against a wall to stand by, as the Kincaid Park Chalet overflowed with people mourning her death.

“I miss my sister. I miss her so much,” Brandi Moore shared. “Bananas, I hope you’re listening. I know you’re listening. I’m here for you. You’re not alone.”

While Moore’s death was brought on by what police describe as a brutal act of violence, the life she lived, filled with love and laughter, is what some family and friends say they’ll remember forever.

“Bree would walk by the office, she’d just see the scowl on your face … and she’d walk by and do the robot,” shared one co-worker as the audience laughed.

“Or do the stairs,” chimed in another co-worker.

Others say the lesson she shared, to savor each day as if it were a gift, is one she continues to teach, even after death.

“She showed that enthusiasm and loved reaching out to other people and I’ll never forget the lesson I learned from her in this and I want to live my life as Bree lived hers,” a co-worker said.

Police believe Moore’s boyfriend, Joshua Almeda, is responsible for her death.

Almeda is charged with second-degree murder and weapons charges for the shooting that claimed Moore’s life last Thursday. His next court date is July 8.
