April 18, 1996 - Feb. 6. 2007
LOS ANGELES Breanna "Bre-Bre" Christian Bowen-Thompson, 10, of Los Angeles, died Feb. 6, 2007 at Kaiser Permanente Hospital, California.
She was born April 18, 1996 to Farrah Bowen.
She attended Twenty-fourth Street School until her illness, then she was home schooled. She attended Star missionary Baptist Church and their vacation Bible School under the leadership of Doctor W.M. Brent Sr.
She was a very friendly, loving person with a beautiful personality, with a cheerful heart to everyone she met. She loved music, was a good dancer, loved fashion, Chris Brown (whom she wanted as a boyfriend when she turned 17), Bratz and Bobby Jack. During her illness she never complained, cried or became angry. She didn't like it when she had to stay in the hospital but she still never complained.
