Brandon lived with his Dad, Step-Mom and Step-sister in El Paso Texas. I live in Montgomery Alabama. The distance was horrible, but he was happy, that is what we all want for our children, is for them to be happy. I can not begin to tell all of you just how fortunate we all are for Brandon. He was the most caring, sweet and gracious child I have ever seen before in my life. I am not saying this because he is my son but if you were able to meet Brandon, you'd say the same as well. His smile would light up the world, when he came into a room, you can't help but to smile back at this amazing boy! I am so very very proud of all the things he has over come, we may have been many many miles apart but yet we were so very close.....I Love you son and I miss you more and more everyday! You fought and very good fight till the very end!! I have always been very proud of you and I always will!! As Long As I Live, You Will Live!!! I Love You My Angel, Mommy

Hi Catriena - I see that your son got a bipap recently. I think your son is so handsome! I hope that they (docs) are helping with the heart arrhythmia.

Hi, my son died recently (March 13) of a heart arrhythmia. Please email me at and I will fill you in on what led up to it. It happened so suddenly, I was unable to revive him as I saw this happen.

Very devastating,

I dont want to upset you I just want to share with you so it wont happen again to anyone!
