    I can’t believe this happened to you. You were too young to die. You are leaving two beautiful tributes to your life in Haleigh and Hannah Mae. The pictures I took of you and Hannah Mae at Dos Margaritas a few weeks ago are still on my cell phone and I will get them printed and get them to your mother. I know you are in heaven and will be watching over your girls and Justin who all loved you very much. Goodbye dear Brandi, you will be missed. I will check on your mom now and again to make sure she is okay.

    hope in prayer,
    peace in love.”

    Sharing in your sorrow

    “You have waited,..for another time and another place. The hand of God, it reached down from heaven and touched your face. He has saved you, with His healing hands, and His warm embrace. He’s made you whole, and sent your soul to a better place. He did light the path that led you to His gracious, precious land…where you’ll FINALLY see what waits for you, is BETTER than you’ve had.”

    “No more pain, No more sadness. No more heartache, No more madness. In His arms is where you’ll stay, until we meet again someday.”

    Words from my heart…see you later beautiful girl.

    To my girls Hailey Faith & Hannah Mae, my Dear Mother Robin, Father, Stepfather, Brother,
    Sister, Grandparents, JUSTIN and Very Special friends. My 2 girls know Always I love you both!
    I wanted to let you all know that I�??m ok!
    I made my peace when I knew I was coming home! I’m writing this from heaven! ;o
    Here, there is NO SICKNESS, CRAVINGS just peace, love and happiness!

    Please do not be sad just because I�??m not there, I�??m still with you all!
    Saturday Feb 6th 2010 when my life on earth was through,
    God picked me up and hugged me and He said, “I welcome you back home Brandi�?�

    He told me ya�??ll will be here later on with me! ;o
    He said he needed me here that he had a plan!?
    He said there was a lot that needed to be done to help out a lot of my family friends and just man in general.

    God gave me a list of things, which he wanted me to do
    And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you all
    And when you lie in bed at night, the day’s chores put to flight.
    God and I are closest to you….in the middle of the night.

    When you think of my life on earth, just remember now I�??m in a much better place and
    I�??m well cared for. It was hard there on earth to do the right thing all the time there was so much evil and temptation daily so know MOM, I�??m much better now!

    I wish that I could tell you all what God has planned
    But if I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand.
    But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over
    I’m closer to you now, than I ever was before.

    There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
    But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

    Friends all I can say is STOP IT don�??t do it! Get your lives together!

    So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
    Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
    When you’re walking down the street, and you’ve got me on your mind;
    Remember I�??m ALWAYS there!

    And when it’s time for you to go…. from that body to be free,
    Remember you’re not going…..you’re coming here to me.

    I love you Always,
    BE HERE!
    Bandi, Brando

    First of all we want to say that WE LOVE BRANDI VERY MUCH! THIS is what Brandi would say if she were still here with us:

    We are writing this FOR ROBYN:
    Ms. Donna Clark’s previous comments are SO UNACCEPTABLE! You don’t even know the family, and you certainly didn’t know Brandi…we can’t understand what would motivate you to go on here and write such HORRIBLE things. Number one: JUSTIN never loved Brandi at all! He did HORRIBLE things to her that we family members know about because Brandi confided in US while she was still here with us…Number two: YOU are DONNA CLARK…NOT BRANDI PORTER! We can’t even comprehend what would compell you to go on here and write something as though you are her “looking down from heaven”. You’re SICK and RUTHLESS for that, and what you did caused Robyn A LOT of UNNECCESSARY pain! Number three: You have NO IDEA what Brandi was going through, NOR what happened to her in the last few months of her precious life. “In heaven there are no CRAVINGS” you said…cravings for what Ms. Clark? YOU DON’T KNOW what you’re talking about AT ALL! You need to go on some website where you can post comments about things that ARE you’re business like maybe what your husband was doing at the bar with another woman the night HE died! instead of going on here and trying to disgrace Brandi’s life and her family! MIND YOUR BUSINESS, and if you come on here again, we suggest to you that you say NICE things about Brandi, instead of painting her out to be some love crazed drug user! You WISH you could be the beautiful person she was, as opposed to pretending to be her soul coming back to speak to specific people in HER LIFE! Thanks to everyone who posts LOVING comments and memories of Brando…and to you Ms. Clark…Thanks for showing the world what kind of person you REALLY ARE so we all know to STAY AWAY FROM YOU!…We love you BRANDI NICOLE…FOREVER. And we’ll miss YOU always beautiful girl.

    Would you PLEASE email me, my daughter is in a “relationship” with Justin and I NEED HELP! I’m doing my background work and cross my fingers I can get her to break free. Please email me because I can sense all that’s been said isn’t what happened.

    Robyn, I am so saddened by your lose, As a mother I can truly say it is the worst possible thing for you to have to endure. My heart goes out to you and Anthony and her children. God will see you thru this …Brandi was a very sweet and beautiful girl and it so traggic for her life to have ended so young..when she had so much to live for…You will always be in my thoughts and prayers..and if ever I can do anything for you please feel free to call upon me…And Robyn remember God says he will never put anything on us that we cant handle….So look for the stars at night and you will see your Angel smiling down and watchin over you….Forever in my Heart….Love Nancy Key

    You are forever loved and missed . May God shine his light on your family and help them to understand it was time for you to come and make your place beside him…To lend your hand watching over your family from above…The pain is so very real and takes time and will never go away …It only eases up enough to become bearable but with your help from above it will happen….So Brandi keep your light shining so your family knows you are ok….
