A year has come and gone without you. The pain is still there, but I am working on learning how to live life with it. I think of you everyday. I miss you so much. I wish I could talk to you, hug you and tell you what a big part of my life you are. That is where the pain is, the big hole left where you were.
My plan is to spend as much time with my grandson Tyler as a growing teenager will allow, and wait patiently for my two grand-daughters to come of age and contact me. This way a small part of you will be hugged, loved and cherished.
Brandee I will never stop loving you, missing you or thinking of you. I can only share what I know of you with the ones you left behind.
Family and friends help, but it is ultimately up to me to find my way.
My heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to the family and friends on the unexpected passing of your dear love one. May God Almighty continue to grant you peace and comfort in your time of need 1 Cor 1:3. And continue to cherish the wonderful memories you all shared as they become more precious in the days to come.
For Brandee and Andromeda
Two bright stars in the night sky.
Today would have been Andromeda' s 22nd birthday, so you both are very much on my mind today. This will be the first birthday for her to have her mom with her in heaven. I can only imagine the joy you are sharing. I still have some real bad days, but they are diluted with a few good ones. Sometimes your loss comes flooding back so hard & fast, it's crushing, I'm paralyzed...then I cry. Basically I go through the motions of daily life & do the best I can. I miss 'us' so much. Music is a big trigger, you so loved to sing. I'm still working on healing, but it is hard. I love you. Mom
You are the light in my life.
Eight months have now passed without you, my sweet daughter. Your birthday has passed and the holidays are upon us. This is a very hard part to get through. Christmas was always your favorite time of year, your enthusiasm was infectious. I'm just not feeling it this year. I don't know if I ever will again. A big part of me was lost when you died, the fun loving part. I'm still trying to find the beauty in the world, and it is elusive. I love you so much and miss you enormously. Not a day goes by without a reminder that you are no longer here. Rest in peace my sweet angel and know that I'm working on it.
Polly, I am so sorry to hear of Brandee's passing. I remember her as a sweet young girl and full of life. You were lucky to have such a wonderful child, I am sorry for your loss.
So sorry to hear of your loss. May your memories help you heal. Please be encouraged that with time the may will get more bearable and that eventually you will be able to find a new normal in your life. Please remember that our precious children are always in our hearts no matter where they are. You and your our family are in my thoughts. Kit Ballentine Hill (Amy Ballentine;s mom)
So sorry to hear the sad news about Brandee. My heart goes out to you for your precious loss. I too, have felt the unbearable pain of losing a child. I know it is one of the most painful experience's a mother can face. Suddenly, everything is changed! But, remembering all the good times you shared together living and laughing can help to give you some comfort. But, most of all, may the God of Love, who never causes what is bad to happen, sustain you thru your pain with His promise of Hope. When He will soon end all sickness and death.
"He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. And the One seated on the throne said, "Look! I am making all things NEW.......these words are faithful and true."
It has been 5 months today I got that terrible phone call telling me you were gone. Most of the last 5 months are a blur, I thought I was functioning right but I found out I wasn't. I find it really hard to feel anything but cheated. I feel cheated out of the rest of my life with you. You were supposed to survive me, not me survive you. I try to always remember our lives shared and the love we had, but I end up back at the felling of being cheat out of all that we worked so hard to achieve and I don't know how to move past that.
The 26th of next month would have been your 37th birthday, I know it's going to be hard to get through. I love you so much sweetheart you were the only person that really 'got' me and I miss that so much, it makes me feel so alone now.
It has been three months now since I lost you, my sweet daughter. The hole left in my life has not diminished with time. I struggle everyday with my grief and loss.I know you are in a better place, surrounded by family and friends who passed before you. I pray for comfort and strength to get through each day. You will always be in my heart. I love you Brandee. Mom
I met Brandee back in 6th grade. She flirted with me but I was too young to know what to do with such a 'woman'. I regret how I handled it, but I was 11, so I have some excuse. I had no idea she was in Tillamook. I find this odd as I live in Seaside Oregon now. It seems that although we didn't really know each other, our lives were entwined somehow. I am very sorry to hear of her passing, she had undeniable energy.
I just found out...I had no idea...I used to have a crush on her in school so many years ago...I'm just speechless. Godspeed Brandee. You are truly one of a kind...
With deepest sympathy to the family during your time of sorrow. Psalms 46:1 says: God is for us a refuge and strength during this difficult time and may God grant you the comfort to endure.
Growing up Brandie was my friend and neighbor. My mother and my brother and sister loved brandie and Polly and Sadie rose. I just found Brandie last month on face book and reunited. Brandie will be missed by me and she was a good friend to me. Love you Polly my number is 635-5115 call me any time.
Miss and love you Brandee,You are such a great person,I think about you every day.
It has been one month today that I lost you, my sweet daughter. I miss you everyday. I work very hard to try and find something good in a world without you, to ease my pain. I know you are in a beautiful place surrounded by love. Rest in peace my angel.
Dale, Polly and the Family, I was deeply saddened to haer about Polly. You have my heartfelt prayers and sympathy. She was a sweet and loving daughter, sister, friend, aunt and most of all A VERY GOOD MOM. Cherish the memories. Psalms 55:22 Throw your burden og God.

So sorry to learn of your loss. I remember Brandee as a little girl and she seemed so strong and confident.
While I had not seen or spoken to Brandee for many many years, her strength of character, her commitment, and her drive to succeed regardless of circumstance have been an invaluable source of inspiration in raising my own daughters. Polly thank you for your trust and allowing me to be a part of Brandee's life, if only for a short while. Know that you grieve not alone.
Brandee, one last time huh? Raiders, take a knee!
You had Great courage in HighSchool. Thanks for being my friend.
