The best memory you left if your music. When I drive to work @ 4 o'clock in da morning they're playing Toot it and Boot it on da radio, I'll turn my radio up. Rest In Peace my dear until we meet again. I Love You G-Casso.

What a beautiful service held over the weekend in memory of Brandon with many heartfelt memories that were shared by Brandon's family and friends. May the memories bring healing strength to each of us and help soften the tremendous loss felt by all who were blessed to share a part of Brandon's short time here on earth. May God's love surround and comfort each of us until the joyous day we are reunited with him once again. Until we Meet Again.....Love, Aunty Joann
