    What a true loss for all of Brandy’s friends and family, she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Brandy was so good about keeping in touch, she never missed a call on my birthday (something I wasn’t so good at) and I will never forget her thoughfulness. I will always be grateful that we met, worked together and developed a true friendship through the years. Bran, you are in a much better place now, smile down upon us and know how much you are loved abd missed. Love, Teri and Mike Adili

    April 24th 2009 I went to my first prom on my grandpas birthday in a beautiful pretty pink dress and silver rhinestone heels that my aunt bought me. We had so much fun shopping together, trying on all kinds of beautiful dresses and shoes. Something every girl wishes to do with their mother BUT i had the great opportunity to share this experience with my aunt and my grandmother. The two wonderful ladies that together filled a gap of an absent mother in my life and i am forever grateful for all the things Aunt brandy did for me but especially encouraging me with whatever goals i set in place. In just 42 days I get to graduate She wont be there in person but I know she’s there in spirit watching me accomplish one of my many goals. <3 I love and miss you auntie. Tabby.
