there are no mere words that can bring comfort to a mourning mother or fathers heart and soul. But there is a comforter our heavenly father who wraps his loving arms around us and helps us when no one else can. Sometimes we may even question the masters plan but joy will come again, when we think of brandys smile or her laugh, or something funny she may have done. Hold onto the good memories. We use to talk about how she loved her momma, daddy and daughters and sister so much and how she loved her husband. Im gonna miss you sweet girl....

a butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam and for a brief moment its glory and beauty belongs to the world. But then it flies once again and though we wish it could of stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it at all.

i was shocked to see sweet brandy had passed away, she had called me not long ago and we chatted for awhile, she would always mention her daughters, her mom and dad, she loved them all dearly. She had told me she was living out on her own and life was better than it had been for her in a long time. im really gonna miss her, what a beautiful smile and the sweetest heart.

my deepest sorrow to the family. I knew brandy through my "sister" angel renee burgin english. She also passed away aug.29 2009.Brandys smile could brighten even my worst days. Angels smile did the same. So just think of that friendship reunion and just how bright heaven must be with those two beautiful faces smileing...just waiting on those of us whos time has yet to come. So even on the darkest of days always remember the beautiful smiles, faces, and the LOVE That was given so deeply to all that was blessed enough to know her. This hard life is over babe rest peacefully..... And you and Angel keep heaven smileing like only the two of you can! My love for you both will always be and my sympathy to brandys family is deeply sent.
