I love you Brandon.


  1. I am a better person for having known him.
    I am now on the donor list.
    I am inspired by his positive attitude.
    I will keep his memory alive to your children.
    I am so very, very sorry Taly.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know Brandon personally but I live in Pensacola and his passing was on the news so I googled him to learn more for some reason. Your blog was so moving I have sat here and read the entire thing and just cried. I too am a mother and I cannot imagine what you have been going through. Though we do not know each other, I wanted to leave you a note to let you know I have prayed for you and your beautiful children to find the peace you so deserve. I have also signed up to be a bone marrow donor just in case one day I could help someone like Brandon. May God Bless you and your family!

  3. Hi Taly,
    I have been following your blog every single time I went online. It was a journey that has entirely changed my attitude towards life and the little things that come along with it. I am so very sorry that it ended so tragically. I never met Brandon, but by now, I almost feel like I did. And I’m choking at the thought of how you must feel right now. So So very sorry!

  4. My heart is aching for you and the family.

  5. We mourn together for this outstanding husband, father and beautiful soul.

  6. "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away"

    For everyone and anyone that knew Brandon, he was the most generous and caring person that walked this earth. His memory will always live on in all of our hearts forever, especially his beautiful children and wife, who he showed unconditional love for.

    Remember all the wonderful moments you shared with him; remember the smile he put on your face.

    May his family know how loved they are, and how people would do anything to help. Thats what Brandon would want, thats what they deserve.

    Brandon, we know you are watching from above, and we miss you and love you.

    - From an old friend who will miss you

  7. I heard your husbands name announced in shul this morning. The magnitude of your loss is incomprehensible. I hope that you find strength from memories and your beautiful children.
