Sweet Brandon, although you won't remember me, I remember you, and the joy you brought to your family.I remember the enigmatic smile, and the devilish twinkle you always wore as a toddler.. It's been that long since I saw you, but I can never forget how excited we all were over your birth. Your grandmother,Judy,was beside herself with happiness. You were a very loved young man,and I am truly saddened that God called you home at such a tender age. I'm sure your Nana Judy, Uncle Anthony, and Aunts, Angie, and Julie have you wrapped in their loving arms in Heaven. Rest in Peace young man. You will be sorely missed, and mourned.
From an old family friend that held you in her arms many times...Peace and prayers to your family....Teresa Jo
