Today I miss my brother. Today I am sad that he is not here. Today I know that our lives will be forever different without him with us. Today I pray for peace and understanding. Today I try not to be mad that he is gone. Today I remember all I can about Brandon and the wonderful person that he was and still is. Today I thank God for the time we had together. Today I’m thankful for salvation. Today I’m assured I will be with him again in Heaven. Today my brother is in a place he would never want to come back from and in a place we long to be. Today my brother walks with Moses. Today my brother arm wrestles Samson. Today my brother sits at the foot of Jesus. Today my brother flies with the angels, making them laugh. Today…..my brother is in Heaven.
Thank you Jesus for my brother. Thank you for Michael Brandon Heath. Tell him I will see him soon. Tell him I love him. And please comfort my parents. Today send Your angels to them. Today let them know their son is free.
Love you Mom and Dad…
I have felt the love of family and friends, old and new, during this time when we are remembering our son who died on this date five years ago. Even though, we will never know the real story behind his death the one thing that we do know is where he is…and that he is FREE. Thank you to my daughter, Andrea…Brandon’s “big” sister for her prayer today. I now have that lovely image of Brandon arm wrestling with Samson….and that is a comfort I cannot describe.
I have posted some images that I hope tells the true character of our son, brother, father, cousin, nephew….and husband.
I think of Brandon’s brawn and wit and intelligence…and all that he was in our lives. One of his favorite movies was “Gladiator” and from that movie is one of my favorite songs….”Now We Are Free”…..It reminds me of my “Maximus”….my Brandon who, as his sister said…is FREE!! We will see you again, son, but not yet, not yet…..
