She was the best Mom anyone could ask for. She just wasn't only my Mother, she was my best friend. The bond we had was something special, one that a lot of people don't have, and I want her to know that nothing is going to come between that bond or separate it. I will never replace you with anyone or anything but you--I'd do anything right now to reverse time. Always loved watching hockey games with her and especially the fact that just me and her got to go to a few games together. It will never be the same no matter who I go with, those games are irreplaceable and not ever going to leave me and my mind. She was always there for anyone and everyone and cared about others more than herself.
She always managed no matter the mood or time of day to make me and others smile and vice versa with her. I just want her to know also anything I do in my life I'm dedicating it to her no matter the time of day. From this day on out everything is for you Mom! I LOVE YOU! and I know you're never going to forget that and neither am I. I'm gonna be here for Joe and get him through this--we're a unit and I'll make sure he's okay. That's a promise I made to you if anything ever happened: is to take care of Joe, Pappy and Nana and myself.
All my love, your son Brandon.
