Your jade still grows strong and succulent, the plants still hang proudly on the hooks you made, and her heart and mind you brought to fruition still yearns for you today. Be with us all this winter to remind us of peace?

Anthony And Kathy; No Mother should outlive her "CHILD", That's not how things were meant to be. Their supposed to "Grow" and "Marry", And bring grandchildren' to our hearts sis... Some things I don't understand, my HEART has been RIPPED OUT'... Is it wrong to be so "ANGRY", I just want to 'SCREAM' and 'SHOUT'... My throat feels like I've swallowed glass, Such a deep ache for you "BRANDAN"... Life seems to go on in slow motion, But I'm just to numb to care... My mind is finely tuned to special things, Times we spent together... You'll always be my treasured nephew, into eternity, and stay in my heart forever... AND YOUR MOTHER'S LOVE WILL NEVER END... WITH ALL MY RESPECT, LOVE AND ADMIRATION!!! I'LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE... REST IN PEACE BRANDAN... AGAIN, LOVE AUNT CONNIE...

Unconditional Love is what we shared and will never be lost.

BROTHER BRANDAN, I miss and love you Brother! I miss calling you, you always cheered me up! You had the best outlook on life. You had a way of making the mundane sound fantastic. I can't believe your gone! I want to pick up the phone and call you! You could always brighten my day no matter what kind of mood I was in. I will miss you brother until the day we meet again in the house not made by hands, eternal in the heavens.
May 28, 2013
Even now we feel your presence with us as we do what we have always done. Every time a fire pit is made, someone shares a memory of you, every time a new bloom opens in beauty, your stories are remembered, every time there is a gathering around Carol, we know you would be smiling proudly. You will not be forgotten, and the more stories I hear about you, the more respect and love I have for you. Thank you.
April 27, 2013
Love you, Brandan. I know you are still with me.

I am shocked and saddened to hear of Brandan's death. He has always had a special place in my heart although it has been several years since we were in contact. I remember his kindness, thoughtfulness and positive outlook on life. I also remember his helpfulness like the time he helped me clean out my basement when I had to move and no one else wanted to. One thing that really touched me was his love for his mother. I want his mother to know how much he appreciated her. My prayers will always be with you.
April 08, 2013
I can't say why I started looking for you, Brandan. Only that I was curious about what you were up to, and that I was hoping to get in touch with you. I am filled with regret as I write this that I didn't do so months earlier, and could have spoken with you one last time. The years you were in my life you made a great impression on me and my entire family. You were such a kind spirit, always making me feel included and special. I will always miss you. My thoughts are with your family and friends, I know grieving you will be difficult. An ordinary man could have live a thousand years longer and not have touched as many lives as you did in your short time on Earth. Goodbye Brandan.
Love,
Madeline

You were a candle to so many people Brandan. Your smile was a light that no darkness could hide away it would always shine through. You always knew what to say to cheer me up. You made me stronger then I am and braver then I thought I could be. You were the best big brother anyone could ever have had. You were always there for me growing up and I knew if I ever needed you you would be there. I miss my brother and this hurts my heart like nothing has in a very long time. I am not a good enough writer to ever do justice to what the world lost the day god called you home to him. You will be so missed and you were so loved by everyone who knew you. I think some people's hearts are almost too good for this world so maybe thats why god took you away from us so soon so you can be our angel watching over us from up above. Until we meet again may this candle burn for you and the love you gave everyone you knew from your heart of gold.
March 28, 2013
I miss my brother. I miss his smile, the way he always knew how to cheer me up. His laugh that just made you have to laugh alone with him. His loving heart, his spirt. Our all night talks about the world and all the wonders in it. I was so proud of you and you were loved more then I think you ever knew. I will miss you for the rest of my life until we see each other again in Heaven. Please watch over me and when things are bad I will take comfort that my big brother will always have my back even in Heaven. God never let me have a real brother in life I was very blessed to have one in you and our friendship and it meant the world to me. You were so loved and you will always be missed.
March 28, 2013
You were so loved by everyone you knew. You brought joy to other's with your words, your laughter and you kind heart. You were so much more then you ever knew and I will miss my big brother for the rest of my life until we meet again in Heaven. Please watch over me and always know how much your little sister loved you.

Brandan was one of the best people I've ever known and will ever know. He made as important impact on my life and for that I'll always be grateful. It's important to note the positive contribution that Heartbeat Drumworks played in shaping the Asheville scene. While I am a recent transplant to the area, I've gotten to know the drum circle as a centerpiece of Asheville's cultural programming. I feel blessed to have gotten to know Brandan as well as I did. My heart goes out to Carol for her loss. Love.

Brandan,

I am going to miss our adventures brother! Guess you are on the biggest of all adventures now... Now who am I gonna call when times are really good or really rough? Where will I find your unique words of wisdom and advice? You were a good friend and brother. I miss ya and I will see you soon enough.

My dear sweet Brandan,
The first time I laid eyes on you, you were just turning age 9. You and your cousins spilled out the front door of Mamaw and Papaw Owen's home near the highpoint of the Blue Ridge Parkway to welcome me into the Owen family.

You always made me feel welcome and special. Throughout the years we shared a spiritual connection that defied logic and survived your brief stint as a grumpy teenager.

I'm so grateful that you and Carol became soul mates and shared five wonderful years together. My heart is heavy that you didn't have more time to start a family and grow old together, but I know you'll be watching over Carol and patiently waiting for the day when you'll be reunited in a better place. We love you and miss you, but in your honor we will go on with a smile on our face, a quest for knowledge in our minds, and with hearts open wide for whatever the future brings.

Brandan took me into a special room at the Biltmore House one year when I was un able to walk all the rooms and gave me a tour that was as good as the ones they walked as the video played.Such a very sweet young man. He will be missed as He was Loved by so many.
March 24, 2013
A candle for my magical Brandan. May the flame burn forever.
March 24, 2013
My sweet, Brandan.

I wish I could express how much I loved Brandan Owen. We told each other everyday how much we loved each other. No mater what happened, nothing could ever sever the deep connection that we shared. I could always see his compassionate heart. He is my soul mate and will remain connected to me forever. He was so much more than I ever even knew that I wanted or needed. I could have never dreamed him up. He made an impact on everyone that he met. I am a stronger person because of him and am forever changed. I learned so much from Brandan and am eternally grateful for the love that we shared. I will strive to live my life to honor him. Our hearts still beat together.

Until we met again My Love, I love you.
March 24, 2013

Dear Cheryl, Rick, Carmen and Jesse,

Blair and I send our deepest sympathies. May the universe welcome Brandan into its arms so that he will be loved and remembered forevermore.
March 22, 2013
Rick, Cheryl, Jesse and Carmen,
I will always think of Brandan as the adorable, sweet, pixie-faced blonde boy with long coltish legs whom I first met. I am so deeply saddened by your loss. There's a Brandan-shaped hole in the universe and your hearts, but there are also cherished memories. I love reading the guest book and am grateful to all his classmates and friends for sharing such amazing comments and insights. May you find some comfort in knowing what a positive light Brandan has been in this world.

Family is Everything
Brandan's last text to me ended with these three words.

Terribly sorry to hear of Brandan's passing away. I had two classes with him at AB Tech and really enjoyed knowing him. The whole family will be in my thought and prayers.
March 21, 2013
May God "surround and comfort" Brandan's loved ones during this time of distress.
March 21, 2013
I met Brandan in 1990, when we were but kids. The first thing I noticed about him was his infectious smile, and the second was his shining spirit. He always had an upbeat attitude and a kind word to spare, and carried a humanitarian approach with him wherever he went, leaving an impression of a caring soul. He was an appreciator of the arts, of culture, music, and fine food. He saw beauty in the world, and was a seeker of the light and truth, he valued history, nature, his ancestors, and the earth. May he be one with these things now, and part of the light which he sought. Rest in peace Brandan, you will be missed.
March 21, 2013
I took a U.S. History class with Brandan at AB Tech. I don't actually know why he took the class because he seemed to know everything! He was incredibly intelligent. All of his classmates feel a dramatic loss and we keep his family in our hearts.
