    I will never forget when we linked up in Georgia, you came to Columbus and we watched the Pats. This one hit me really hard, one of the hardest to date. 1975 was a good year bro, you September, me December. I wish you did not get called home so early, I know you are no longer suffering. Just seems like yesterday When I sent you words of encouragement through Facebook before you went to Beth Israel on Wednesday.

    Debating on taking the trip home, I miss you bro!

    We are a close family and I am Brandon’s Aunt Phyllis. As a child Brandon was a sharer. Brandon always the one that you knew was making an intelligent choice he was the brain Brandone. and his Shenanagans are known throughout the family. while Michael, Sherel, Roscoe, and Gerald was debating about some caper he thought out Brandon wasn’t about fighting he just loved having fun, everyone was included he made friends wherever he went. He had a nickname for everyone in the family and a story to go with it..He got along with people everywhere. I could go on you will leave a hole that cannot be filled. Loved, Missed, and holding in my heart never lost.. I know you are in Good hands no more pain. Love you SHOOTSHANDO!

    Brandon, Mel and I love and miss you. You were always a joy to be around. We would have fun wherever we were. I’ll miss you choosing your hospital care based on where I was working. Always wanting me to sneak you food. Lol. As much as you got in my nerves with those “other” conversations, I’d give almost anything for you to be able to have one of those conversations with me now. Mel said she missed you coming to the house and hanging out with her. Rest well cousin until we meet again. Love you.

    You kept all of us warmer inside with your laughter, love, and care. On the outside was sometimes funny, and always loving, but on the inside you were brave. It was easy for you to share what you were going through and what you needed in your life. I’ve learned from you. I love you. I will miss you.

  19. Denise-Nicole Stone on July 10, 2020 at 3:43 pm

    Brandon is my big cousin and I have always adored him . Some of my favorite memories involve him. Brandon made me laugh, taught me, and made me feel loved. He was one of my people. When you were around him, you knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that he cared about you. What a blessing to have known and loved him. What a blessing to have been loved by him. You left your mark on us and nothing in this family will ever feel quite the same again. I’m just gonna miss you so much.

  20. Cynthia Lee on July 10, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    Brandon….Brandon. Can’t say how much I’m going to miss you. Always your own person doing things your way. One of the last post I saw of yours had you seeking a close conversation with God. You always manage to get what you want. Happily your questions are now answered and you get to live in peace above the choas. My aching heart will miss you always. Love you Ms. Aunt Cynthia….the Beautiful
