Dear Family & Friends:
Some of you I've never met and some I haven't seen in a very, very long time. I know we're all shedding tears for such a beautiful young woman, there are no words to help ease the pain. Grieve, shed those tears and then keep her memories close in your heart. She's an angle now and can watch over all of you. Whenever your sad reach into your heart she will be there to dry your tears and make you smile. Rest in peace Dear Brandi, your now an angel amongst us.

From CHERIE NULPH NORGE on November 8, 2010
Rich and family. I am soo sorry for your loss. I went all thru school with Brandi. I was so excited when she just recently found me thru facebook.All she talked and bragged about was u and her kids. We had exchanged cell phone no's so that we could meet up for lunch and catch up. She sent me pics daily just about of the kids and funny jokes. I could not believe that she was gone and I sadly never got to have that time to catch up in person but we did do plenty of late night chats on our laptops that we laughed about cuz we had the same ones!! She was a wonderful friend and I kno she was a wonderful mother and wife. Cherrish all the wonderful memories u have shared and kno that she will be with you always. So many thoughts and prayers I send to you all. Take care Love Cherie Nulph Norge

How do you let go
How do you let go.... when today brought sarrow.
How do you let go as the Angle's cry.... when tears drop like rain from the sky.
How do you let go of someone so dear.... when they are so far away yet they feel so near.
How do you let go of a heart thats gold.... when your's is left feeling alone and could.
How do you let go of their tender embrace.... when you long to feel their arms full of warmth and grace.
How do you let go as they lay to rest.... when your lungs are drownding with in your chest.
How do you let go of their strength of steal.... when your body's num and can no longer feel.
How do you let go as you look at an empty seat.... when your world crumbles to surround your feet.
How do you let go of love with out end.... when alone you wisper "I lost my best friend".
How do you let go of a smile that greets.... when your spitting at people walking down the streets.
How do you let go of their laughter and chear.... when you've just faced your worst fear.
How do you let go of the one you've cuddled.... when you try to speak but your sounds are muddled.
How do you let go waching as they set sail.... when sand prints are all thats left from where your knees fell.
How do you let go just for a while.... when your sentanced to life by the judges trial.
How do you let go of one who never quit trying.... when inside your soul is slowly dying.
How do you let go of their guiding light.... when now its dark and your blind of sight.
How do you let go of a hand thats giving.... when you yourself don't feel like living.
How do you let go of the pearl from its shell.... when each day you awake to a living hell.
How do you let go of their swing in the park.... when you keep to yourself alone and dark.
How do you let go the kiss that sealed.... when walls is all that you want to build.
How do you let go of a priceless gift.... when your memories you dig and sift.
How do you let go of all that you know.... when all thats left is a box with a bow.
How do we let go.....
In Rememberance of: Beth Seybert, Brandi Miller,
Mia, Chopper, Heidi & Cloey
