Brandy loved with all that she had. Her sun rose and set in her children. Brandy never met a stranger nor did she have any enemies, to know her was to love her.

My BFF/Sis we use to have so much fun every day me, you Janie and some times Andy. but most of the time me, you and Janie was always running around getting on Granny nerves and Kellys and Tracy when she was there. I will truly miss you and all the fun we had growing up together. The best neighbor /friend and sis I ever had. Wish we could go back to New ave and live again. If it won't for you and Kelly I would of known about my daddy. And because of you I got to see him before he passed and got to go to his funeral. I can hear daddy know when he seen you walk thru them gates along with mom and granny. Watch over us all. You will be deeply missed by so many because so many people loves you. I remember the days you worked with me and we talked the hole day about growing up and catching up. We grew up but we never missed a beat. You and your family always accepted me for me and that made me love you and them more. Your memories and thoughts of you live forever in out hearts!! Love you and miss you BFF/SIS!!!

Gosh words can’t even be put together knowing that you are not here physically. I remember that day when I was at your house with Lori and we were laughing and talking and acting a fool and then Lori and I accidentally scared the big dog and she nibbled me omg! It was so funny I couldn’t stop laughing! Hearing your laugh will be greatly missed! You are truly loved!!! I know it’s been years since I’ve seen you but I have never forgotten about you! You were and always will be Aunt Brandy to me!!! When I needed to vent, you were there to listen! I love you so much beautiful! Rest easy my love!!

Brandy you will forever be missed. I know you're safe and at peace. What a great friend since middle school. The times we hung out at your house with pamela and vivi and others was fun times. Living down the street from you in school then again the last few years gave us a chance to catch back up, share memories and laugh.

Thank you for being my lifelong friend! Thank you for sharing your family with me! When my home was crap you let me stay with you! We skipped school took mom’s car out always putting gas back in it! (Gas fairy) us! But not the groceries! You were kind and beautiful! Thank you for being you! Love you always!
