My Angel / Laura Times (Brandon's Mom )
My Dear Brandon, It's been some time since I've written on your sight all though there's not a moment in the day that I don't think of you. It is still so difficult not having you here with us. Your 15th birthday is coming up next month. I think about how you would look, what you would be into and who would be your friends, what little girl would you have a crush on and all the things in life I wanted you to experience. I miss you so much. I know I will be with you again and it will seem like the years of separation were only moments. I see signs of you in my every day life. Please continue sending them to me even if they make me cry. It's ok...that's what moms do. Missing you with all my heart...love you my precious angel...mom...mu'ah!!!! Close

Thinking of you Brandon.... / Claire Boyd (Friend)
Dear sweet Brandon
You have been gone for 7 years now but your spirit is still with us. I know your Mom thinks of you everyday. What she might not know is that we all still think of you too. You were such a sweet gentle loving boy and I will always remember you. I have a shirt with your picture on it that I wear all the time. You "earth" birthday and "heaven" birthday are both coming up pretty soon. I'm going to think of you when I see a green balloon this week! Remember how your class stood in a circle on your birthday and sent green balloons to heaven for you? Go hold your mama's heart this week 'cause she's going to be thinking of you more than ever! We miss you sweet Brandon!
My Dear Brandon Happy Thanksgiving to you in heaven. I remember when we found your stem cell match the day before Thanksgiving. How excited we were. How I wish you were still here with us. There is not a moment in the day that I don't think of you. I think of all the moments we shared to together and day dream about that moments I thought we would share in the future. Baby I miss you so much and wish you were here. I would do anything to have you here with us. Until we meet again....Love you Mom
Happy 4th of July / Laura Times (Mom)
Happy 4th of Juli my precious angel! Baby I miss you so much. I look at your pictures and so many emotions come flooding through me. I remember how we used to look at the fireworks thru the living room window because you hated the noise. You were always by my side giving me so much love and joy. I can't believe it's been 6 years. To me it seems like yesterday. What I would give to have you hear with us. So many things have change yet so many things have stayed the same. It's hard to believe you would be 13 years old. A teenager. It's so hard for me to imagine. You will always be my little 6 year old boy who loved xtreme sports wrestling skate boarding dirt biking eatting cheese pizza with Ranch dressing tons of ketchup on your popcorn chicken and hot dogs the softness of your skin the joy in your eyes and the love in your heart. What a loss to the world to not have you here. There was so much I wanted you to see and do...so much for us to share together. I can't wait to be with you again my baby. Loving you always....Mom Close
My Precious Angel / Laura Times (Brandon's Mom )
My Dear Brandon There is not a moment in the day that you are not in my thoughts. I still can't believe you are not here with me. Why did God need you so much more than we needed you here...I will never understand. Another Mother's Day without your smile your gentle hug and a wonderful card made witih love. Oh how I miss you. I love you my baby...Mom Close
Prayers for you too Laura... / Meriam San Antonio (Friend)
I pray for you too Laura - the pain will never go away but Brandon's memory will stay forever. But amidst the pain you were there for him; the pillar of your home. You and your family will always be in our thoughts and prayers but most especially Brandon as he was part of Jonathan's life and will be forever be remembered. Take care.... Close
Sending You All My Love / Laura Brandon' Mom (Mom)
My Dear Angel as I prepare to honor your life next month I reminisce on how blessed I was to have you for a gift if only for a short time. I look at your pictures with your loving smile and I still can't believe you are not here with us. I try to remember the sound of your voice the softness of your touch and the love in your eyes when you looked at me. I miss you so much and long to wrap my arms around you. You were such a loving funny little guy. So brave never complaining. Always giving of yourself. I still and wonder how different life would be if you were still here with us. I try to imagine you as a teenager. I see your friends everyday and wonder who would be your best buddy now who you would have a crush on if you would still like wresting and extreme sports if you would try to tell me a joke and never get it out because you were laughing so hard. Oh how much I miss you and how much the world has missed not to have you here. There was so much I wanted for you. So much I wanted you to see & do. You accomplished so much in such a short amount of time and touched so many lifes. I thought I would have you here with me forever. I do get your signs. In the beginning I was so deep in my grief that I didn't welcome your messages. I welcome them now and look forward to them in any form you send them. I will never come to terms with you having to leave us so soon but I will always remember and cheerish the time we had. You were my little shadow. I couldn't turn around without you being there right underneath me. We were so much alike. You were my little twin. Oh Brandon how I wish you were here and well. I always remember how excited you were when I would return back to your hospital room. You big smile your gentle hug and all that love you were just waiting to give me. I love Brandon and I know that we will be together again. Sending you all my love....Mom Close
"I Lost My Child Today" / Laur Times (Brandon's Mom )
I Lost My Child Today
I lost my child today. People came to weep and cry As I just sat and stared dry eyed. They struggled to find words to say To try and make the pain go away I walked the floor in disbelief I lost my child today.
I lost my child last month. Most of the people went away Some still call and some still stay. I wait to wake up from this dream. This can't be real. I want to scream. Yet everything is locked inside God help me I want to die. I lost my child last month.
I lost my child last year. Now people who had came have gone. I sit and struggle all day long To bear the pain so deep inside. And now my friends just question Why? Why does this mother not move on? Just sits and sings the same old song. Good heavens it has been so long. I lost my child last year.
Time has not moved on for me. The numbness it has disappeared. My eyes have now cried many tears. I see the look upon your face "She must move on and leave this place." Yet I am trapped right here in time. The songs the same as is the rhyme I lost my child.......Today.
It doesn't get any easier as time passes to come to your site. The pain of not having you hear with us pierces right through my heart. There's not a day that I don't try to imagine how different life would be if you were still here with us. We all miss you so much. Your brothers speak of you often. In everything I do, I look for signs that you are somewhere near. Please give Grandpa and all the others that live with you in heaven a big hug from me. I look forward to the day when we are all reunited at our Blue Bayou. I love you baby...Mom
How Deeply You're Connected to My Soul / Laura Times (Brandon's Mom )
My Dear Brandon,
I love you so much. How I wish you were here with us. It's hard to believe that you are now 12. I sit and imagine how you would look and what things you would be into. How unfair that our lives together were cut so short. I dream of the day when we will all be together soon. Give grandpa a kiss for me. Love you, Mom
"How could anyone ever tell you you were anything less than beautiful… how could anyone ever tell you you were less than whole… how could anyone fail to notice that your loving is a miracle… how deeply you're connected to my soul…"

Brandon I was thinking of you today. Jacob went to see Dr. Kronish for the last time for a checkup, before Dr Kronish moves to Boston. I know as a mom some of what your family has been through. We honor you on your birthday and have sweet memories of you. I pray that your family knows that you are with God and you are smiling down on them. Happy Birthday! Close

Thinking of you, Laura / Susan Sadler (Day-By-Day)
Wow, what a beautiful, amazing boy Brandon was (or is, as I believe he exists whole and happy, waiting for you in heaven). Sometimes in my grief over my son Zach, I forget that others are suffering as I am, that anyone could have loved their son as much as I love Zach. Clearly, you love Brandon that way. I wonder if since we are tied on Earth, our children are tied in Heaven. Zach was 16, but Brandon looks like the kind of kid he would have really liked. Close
