It has been two years since Brandi's passing. Our family has cryed many tears since. Brandi always was friendly and encouraging to our family...especially when we felt a little "out of the loop". She will be in our hearts forever! And now, it is time to let her be our Guardian Angel. Still encouraging us and being our friend. We will always love you Brandi.

I ran into a former student who shared this sad news with me. Brandi was honestly one of my favorite students in all my years in education. I was shocked to hear about her passing, and I am deeply saddened by this news. My condolences to her entire family. I can't imagine how difficult this loss is for her loved ones. I will never forget Brandi!

Brandi,
I still can't believe any of this is happening. The days go by and I still look and think about answers I need, and I just can't stop thinking WHY? You were such a beautiful, bright, intelligent, loving, athletic....I could go on and on about you, but the bottom line is your life was cut WAY too short, you still had sooo many things to experience and you still had LIFE to happen. I feel like our family has been cheated out of seeing you grow and seeing you succeed, and not to mention just being with you and enjoying their time with you. I never got to know who you were as an adult, and I just wish I could have at least talked to you one more time. We were very good friends growing up, I would say best. I have sooooo many good memories of us growing up together...wayyy to many to list all of them but I'll start with Queenie....i'll never forget that one. My dad, Uncle Bob, started that one because you ran the show and had such an attitude!!! I know if he were here today he would think of this as a tragedy, as do I. I truly hope you have found the peace you longed for and hope you know you will truly be in my, along with MANY, heart forever.

I was shocked to hear the news about Brandi. I will never forget what an amazing classmate she was. We were lab partners in middle school science, and I loved working with her because she was an intelligent and fast worker, and never complained about anything. Her smile was infectious, and she brought light into people's lives.

We'll miss you.

To the Evers Family,
My condolences go out to all of you on Brandi's sudden and shocking passing. I remember her well as the long-time PA announcer for St. Louis Park Girls Hockey and Lacrosse and she was one of the top female athletes in her class. Number 12 may be gone but the memories of her on the ice and the lacrosse field will live on for many years to come. This season should be dedicated to Brandi's memory.

There is not enough space here to convey the deep grief and loss that I feel. Brandi was a true treasure for all of us to share. She captured our hearts from the very instant she became family. Not only did she touch our lives, but the lives of many of her friends. You and Kim should be very proud of the way you raised her. Brandi was an amazing young woman that will never be forgotten. You all have my love and support.

Our prayers are with you daily. We are without words to express our sympathies for your loss. Brandi was an amazing person with passion and talent. Brandi was inspiring. We were grateful and honored when Brandi took our youngest, Hannah, 'under her wing' and tutored her out on the ice, when she was in "Mini-Mite's". We will miss Brandi.
May God's peace be with you and comfort you, day by day.

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We would like to take this time to send our deepest condolences your way. We got to know Brandi this year because she filled the position as our Assistant Varsity Hockey and Lacrosse coach. During these two sports seasons, not only did she teach us a thing or two about fitness, but she also taught us a multitude of things about life and love. We feel blessed to have gotten the opportunity to know Brandi. She touched our hearts and lives through her beauty, intelligence, sense of humor, and ability to listen to and understand people. Brandi was and will remain an inspiration to us and countless other people. All of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Sending love your way,
