My dear childhood friend Stephanie Our condolences are sent with love to you and  the family. I remember when you brought Brandon home, and how very special he was to you.  Your love and dedication as a mother is something to be admired. Though words cannot take away the pain you are feeling, know the Lord will carry you through your time of sorrow. Brandon was a gift from God, and as I believe, Heaven needed another Special Angel and it was Brandons calling. May you find peace in the memories you will forever have. All my Love and Prayers, Mary

Steph, My heart is so very heavy for you. It is obvious how many lives Brandon has touched. Anyone who knows you ,knows your love and commitment to your children.I can't take your pain from you as I wish I could. Instead, I will pray for you and for your family. I will be here if you need me, to talk to or to cry with or any way I may be needed.You and your family are in my prayers.
I found this quote, and I hope you don't mind ...
Do not judge the bereaved mother.
She comes in many forms.
She is breathing, but she is dying.
She may look young, but inside she has become ancient.
She smiles, but her heart sobs.
She walks, she talks, she cooks, she cleans, she works, she IS,
but she IS NOT, all at once.
She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity.”

Love you Steph, Karen
