Maybe you knew it, but you gave me a real purpose and passion to help others. I am proud to be associated with the fund and it's only because of you. I will never forget you.

Through one of Brandy's philanthropic efforts, we had the good fortune to (virtually) meet. While I never got to see her face in person, her effervescence and empathy were evident in every phone call, email, and text. She made an indelible impression on me and I will endeavor to honor her spirit by being more caring, more patient, and find more joy and laughter in silly things. My deepest condolences to her beloved husband and son whom she talked about regularly and with great zeal. May sweet memories comfort all who mourn Brandy's incredible life and memory.
