Brandy, I am so sorry that people are not leaving reflections often. Life does go on but there should not be a day that goes by without a reflection left here for you. I hope that you are at peace. God bless you and know that you are NOT forgotten!

Dear Brandy and Family,

We think of you all today and hope for peace and comfort for your family. My daughters sat at the dinner table with some of your family in Washington in 2005, sharing in the pain and memories....Matthew, Brandy ....and all the other officers that brought us together and bound us forever by what the year 2004 means to us now. But we remember, and we go on, and we love and hold on to the love that was and will always be the ones we long to hold again.

Always you are remembered.

Hey Brandy,
It's been four years today. I don't think any of us will ever forget that morning. The phone calls, the sadness, the heartache, the long week that followed. It was the worst time of many of our lives. I want you to know that even though time has passed, you are thought about all the time. No one will ever forget you, your life, and the sacrifice you made. You are greatly missed my friend. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone today. ~A friend

Tomorrow will be 4 years since you were taken, and it seems like it's been about 15 minutes. That pain is so fresh and close to the surface for a lot of us. We miss you, buddy. We miss you a lot.

Despite all the distance and time
And the changes that I have gone through
You never strayed far from my mind
And I never stop hoping once more Ill see you

Then I saw you today
In the backyard at play
Baby blue eyes, blond hair in the wind
He's you all over again
Although you went away
I saw you today

I used to wish on a star
And I used to send up a prayer
To heaven where I know you are
That some day Id see you up there or somewhere

Then I saw you today
In the backyard at play
Baby-blue eyes, blond hair in the wind
He's you all over again
Although you went away
I saw you
I saw you today

Hey, buddy...just a tad over 2 weeks until OSU football season starts up.
You're lucky that you get to sit by Woody up there and watch the games, but how are you guys coping with that Schembechler? Does he stink up there like he did down here? :)

Ball season has finally come to a close. We had a great season. The team went 11-1 and came in second at the tournament. We lost to the same first place team in regular season and the tournament.

You would have been so proud of little Ty man in the last regular season game. He is the youngest on the team and smallest at that. At just 5 I moved him up to play in the 7 and 8 year old league. He was playing catcher in that game. The runners that tied and won the game were both coming to home plate. Tyler was ready for the catch, caught the ball and dove at the winning runner. He got him but the ball popped out of his glove. He was heartbroken. But I was so proud of how aggressive he was and how much heart he had in that game. Not too many five year olds would dive at an older kid to get an out.

Landon is all heart as usual. Everyone smiles whenever he comes up to bat. He has a whole ritual before he is ready. Draw a line from the plate where is foot is placed, beat the crap out of home plate with the bat way over his head, pull up his pants a couple of time, sometimes a practice swing then he is ready. It is so funny.

How we all wish you were here to watch them play ball!!!!

Love you and missing you as much as ever.

Sara, Landon, and Tyler
