My Sister was a free spirit. Her love of music and family complemented her completely. Brandie could live her life on music, knowing all the songs of the past really told the true tale of my sister. Each lyric told a story of her life. The "Snort" was memorable. She loved all her family members.
To my Sister, you are free, free to fly.
Your pain is gone, your mind is at calm.
Be at peace now, go and be with our Mother.
