He goes to prison tomorrow for killing you. He should not get out, but he will. I was devastated when we lost you. I will never be the same. You are such a friend to so many and I will never forget your ability to calm issues that arose. The compassion you had for the people that you were around is immeasurable. I wish I was more like you. Forever, I will miss you and will strive to have the understanding you had. Goodbye Brandon.
