Who Is Brandy?

Brandy's Childhood

Brandy was born on November 30th, 1992. She was a happy-go-lucky kid who loved spending time with her sister and cousins.

Brandy as a Teenager

Boardman High School Graduate

Brandy spent 8 years in orchestra playing the upright bass. She played the electric bass at home and enjoyed jam sessions with her close friends.


Where she was headed

Brandy was a passionate listener and naturally gravitated toward helping people.
She was a college student studying psychology and sociology at Youngstown State University at the time of her death.

The Tragedy

What took Brandy from us?

Brandy made the mistake of trusting someone who took advantage of her big heart. Brandy was lured to that person's house on May 17th, 2012, and she was sadly never heard from again.

The Aftermath

Reacting to the tragic loss

Brandy's family and friends came together in the aftermath of the tragedy that left us shocked and grieving.

Candlelight Vigils

Mourning Together

Our annual candlelight vigil allows Brandy's friends and family, who think about her every day, to come together to remember who Brandy was. These remind us that we are not alone in our pain, and that it is OK to remember Brandy in a positive light. 

How to Help

Want to take action?

Our mission is simply to keep Brandy's memory alive and to tell her story in hopes that just maybe, someone will learn from it. Maybe they will be compelled to cut out toxic people from their life.

We do have a recommendation in case you wish to help make a difference for other families who experience such tragic loss.
