My sweet son I cannot believe that you would have been 44 tomorrow, I went to BD this weekend had a good visit with the family, I came to the cemetery by myself, I miss you so much it seems to get harder, I realize how mommy felt, no one knows until it happens to them, I'm raising money again and walking for suicide prevention, I just read 13yr old killed himself, I feel his parents pain, I wish I had known how you were suffering, I'm sorry I didn't, but I also know that the pain you felt that fatal weekend, God has saved my sanity, love momma until next time

My sweet son, you left me 3 yrs on the 2nd, I'm writing tonight because I'm having surgery in the morning and probably will be out of it for a few days, I don't do well on meds as you know. I think of you daily, I don't think that will ever change, I miss you more every day. Love momma til next time
Posted by Joyce Branning on January 26, 2019
My sweet son, just needed to tell you I feel as if I'm beginning to heal from losing you , I will never stop missing, grieving or loving you and probably will never forget how you struggled here on earth,I have forgiven Amanda for all the lies, taking your things and using me after your death, I know she will have to meet our Lord and Savior and answer to him, She had know ideal how much you and I loved her and the girls, I feel sorry for all of them because they will never experience that again. I can smile now when I see her, that is a good feeling that is what forgiveness is all about. Love momma

Its strange sweetie your never out of my mind but this week has been really hard, I miss your big beautiful smile, those eyes would close when you would smile. I never thought that losing a child would be this difficult, some days are harder than others, I love you and hope that you are at peace, I try not to dwell on what ifs because it only makes it harder. I'll be back soon. love momma

My sweet boy another memorial, this month has been the longest [may] I think I've had, maybe because Linda died, It's been really hard, feel so alone and have felt this for about 3 months, I keep praying and I know GOD will see me thru, He has taken care of me since you left me, I love and miss you so momma
Posted by Joyce Branning on May 2, 2018

Posted by Joyce Branning on December 24, 2017
Well my sweet son 2nd Christmas without you and it is no easier today than the the day you left me. A year and half has gone buy and so much has happened and it seems like a long time. People say your resting and happy, I know they are trying to console me, but it doesn't help,I have so many unanswered questions and I know they will go unanswered. Kasie is coming today and all of Travis' family tomorrow, your going to be great uncle wow wish you were here to see all of us.
                                     Love always momma
Posted by Carol Fille on December 10, 2017

Posted by Joyce Branning on December 10, 2017
I miss you so , as Christmas approaches the sadness intensifies, I sometimes want to go away by myself, just shut everyone out, never dreamed I would lose you the way I did. love momma
Posted by Joyce Branning on November 27, 2017
Well baby another Thanksgiving gone, it doesn't get better, I miss you more everyday, it is so hard here without you, I am alone most of the time, don't see your brother or your dad, I see trav ever once in a while,he's busy with his family. I wish you was here,I miss our morning talks,getting ready for Christmas I dread it, I pray you are resting in God's arms and you are happy, would love to see your beautiful smile, momma loves you so much, till next time
Posted by Joyce Branning on September 23, 2017
WE are celebrating your birthday by ziplining in a cave, how fitting as I know you would love it, you always was adventurous,I miss you more each day, I thought it would get easier but it hasn't and I don't think it ever will, I hope it will be a fun day there is 17 going , a few friends that you didn't know but they wanted to support me and honor you, momma loves you so much
Posted by Hannah Wilson on September 16, 2017
Well I posted a picture from when I came to visit you. Ive never met you. But my heart still aches at the thought that I'll never get to. I hope I can go again soon. I love you, uncle David.
Posted by Joyce Branning on August 8, 2017
My sweet son, as I make plans to celebrate your birthday again without you, I think about how you struggled with making the decisions for Amanda and her children, taking care of them and you suffering all the time and she was doing you wrong, as you were loving her and her children, its hard not to want to hurt her but I'm sure God will take care of things and I try to keep in mind your at peace with God, your family and friends are going to zipline in your honor, something we wanted to do together and never got to. sort of dreading 9-23 hoping I can do it without being sad. Love always and forever momma
Posted by Joyce Branning on July 14, 2017
My sweet Dave,well she is back in the gutter, my heart breaks for Kira, have no ideal where she is probably back in Indiana.Been trying since March to get your things back, still cant believe she stole your things, everything you accused her of was the truth, she had both of us fooled, karma has its way and she is getting it, I hoped she would become the mother she should be but isn't going to happen. As far as I know she is still down the street and still works at the bar. Love you and miss you so it is unbelievable how much.
Posted by Joyce Branning on July 8, 2017
my sweet son, been a lot of deaths this week, not family just people I know. People don't realize we are still grieving for you, sometimes Ifeel i'm the only one, I know that isn't so but I cannot seem to cope with things too good anymore. I miss you, our talks and our dreams. Its hard to see your friends living life and having fun, it makes me miss you more because I can see you laughing and having fun and I realize your not here to share that with them. Love momma
Posted by Joyce Branning on June 25, 2017
Baby I miss you you so much, it seems it gets harder. You are never off my mind no matter what I'm doing.I try so hard to change or learn to live without you and I cannot. I hope you are at peace and resting in Gods arms. I love and miss you so. Love momma
Posted by Carol Fille on June 6, 2017
well, i was in ky this past weekend but didn't get to your grave i was not in good shape, but my heart was there.. just wanted to let you know how much you are miss and love so much.. the one that keeps saying she misses you so much, she just plays on everyone sympathy, she nothing but a liar,user,and everything else that i can think of.. i wish i could tell you this in person,but maybe it would be bad to do that.. but in the end she will get hers and i can't wait.. love you and miss you
Posted by Joyce Branning on June 4, 2017
my sweet boy , it gets harder when I go to visit your grave, it starts when I leave to come home, it is so hard without you. I feel if you had it to do all over you would not have let her bring you down, she wasn't worth you wiping your feet on, it was and always will be about her, she is out of my life now, like you I had my eyes closed and she opened them 6 months after you died, my heart aches everyday. i love you so much.
Posted by Travis Branning on June 2, 2017
Hey, bub. Leaving in the morning to come see you. I wish you were going to be there to greet us properly. I'm sorry that I never actually told you how much you meant to me. I hope that somehow you knew. Mom is taking it one day at a time, as is expected, I guess. But I know she will never be the same, not without you. I'm trying my best to take care of her and be there for her every chance I have. She's in good hands, I promise you that. I hope you are at peace, and I truly hope that those responsible for how things ended will soon get what they deserve. If I had an opportunity I would make sure of it. I love you and miss you so much.

Posted by Carol Fille on May 28, 2017

Posted by Joyce Branning on April 11, 2017

Posted by Hannah Wilson on December 9, 2016
I wish I would've gotten the chance to introduce myself to you. I am your neice. My heart aches every time I think about the fact that I'll never get to know who you truly were. I've seen you in pictures, and I've seen you at your funeral, but never will I be able to know what you look like when there is life running through you. Never will I know the sound of your voice in person. Never will I get to hug you. I'll never get to hear your stories about the things you and my dad used to do together. As much as I love hearing the stories about you, I'd rather hear them from you and be able to see you light up at all the funny moments. I'll never truly know who you are. I'm sorry that I was not able to be there. I'm sorry that when I started speaking to the family that I didn't speak to you. I'm sorry that the first time I met you was at your funeral, and I'm sorry we only have one picture together from when I was 6 months old. I know everyone down here misses you and speaks nothing but kind words about you. I wish I had things to say. I'm sure people don't understand how I could miss you when I don't even really know you, and maybe they're right, but I still cry looking at our one picture together, and it still sickens me to know that I'll never get to take another picture with you. I hope you're doing well, and I hope you're happy up there . Please continue to watch over our family. Especially Grandma because I know its really hard for her. I wish I could do more to help her feel better. I may not know you, but I still love you.

As I sit here with tears streaming down my face, I think of all the pain and grief your mother and family have been enduring since you left. It is my prayer that you have found peace and happiness. I believe the angels have wrapped you in their wings and healed your heart and soul.
You are your mother's guardian angel now, You are so loved and missed David. Fly high with the Angels.

Posted by Joyce Branning on November 23, 2016
My sweet son I miss you so much at times its unbearable. They have moved out,I took care of them 6mos after you passed, I couldn't grieve for taking care of them.she started dating about 6 to 8 weeks after you died. I believed everything she said, I had her back, I took up for her whenshe even didnt know it, between her boyfriend telling me about their relationship and seeing them all over each other in the kitchen I knew shehad been lying and she didn't have to. Then the oldest lied on her mom and the boyfriend, and thru all of it I got blamed for it all. I just needed to vent . I know you are at peace and I now understand why you felt the way you did that last night I had with you. I still see your face that tragic Monday morning. There has been so much ugly and I have been accused of it all. Hope someday she will get over the guilt she has about your death and come to talk doubt it but we will see. Tomorrow will be your favorite holiday and I will be doing noting like we use to do. Love always momma miss you so.
Posted by Carol Fille on September 23, 2016
