difficult time.

#11 Condolence By Sheryl Babione On January 7, 2016 @ 3:38 am

Brandon greeted me everyday in class with a smile. He worked hard, and sometimes unexpectedly stopped at my desk with a bit of humor for my day. He was a breath of fresh air wherever he went, and we are all now missing a very special friend. Our paths crossed recently with that sudden recognition when there is too little time to catch up. Now I am so very saddened, knowing that whatever it was that kept us too busy to talk that day was not nearly as important as one last conversation with Brandon would have been. He will be so fondly remembered.
