Brandon Leland 19 of Queen Creek Arizona.   Brandon was just starting his life when it was cut short by a car accident. Brandon loved music, Sammy Hagar and  Pink Floyd being his favorites.  Brandon was a gifted artist and musician.  Brandon was kind and loved everyone.  Brandon  never hesitated to tell us how much he loved and appriciated us.  Brandon was on his first solo trip to Washington to visit his Aunt Vickie before starting college.  We had just talked to Bran and he was so excited, he stopped to get lunch "Mickey D's of course" and call home.  We told him we loved him and to drive careful.  He was going to call when he got into Las Vegas.  So when a call came in 20 minutes later from Brandon's cell phone we were not prepared for what we were told.  It was a stranger wanting to know if we knew the person who owned this phone.  He told us that Brandon had been in an accident and was being tended to.  Since Brandon was three hours from home, way out in Kingman Arizona where there are limited services we knew that Brandon would have to be air lifted out.  We waited for the next call to let us know which hospital he would be taken to.  When the phone rang again it was the Arizona Highway Patrol, they told us they were sorry to inform us that Brandon had been pronounced dead at the scene.  For a moment our world stopped, it was hard to breath.  Even though Brandon had taken an extensive defensive driving class a year before, when his car left the road he lost control.  Brandon's car rolled multiple times and Brandon was not wearing his seatbelt, the convertable top on his car was down and he was ejected.   The Arizona State Patrol officers that came to our house some hours later told us that Brandon had done something we have all done at one time or another, he had taken his eyes off the road for a moment.  Brandon was the youngest of our two boys.  The pain of losing a child is indescribable and never leaves you.  But I don't have to tell any parent that has experienced it that it's like someone ripped your heart out. It's truly a pain that makes everything else seem pale and insignificant.  We are getting ready to spend our second holiday season without Brandon. We miss his smile,his blue eyes, his great laugh and everything else about him.  I wish with all my heart that no other parent have to endure this, but unfortunately that isn't possible.  Even harder and almost unbelievable is the fact that my little sister Tracy lost her son Aaron only 63 days after we lost Bran, Aaron was killed when a gal ran a red light and hit him.  Aaron Zentz was only 17 years old.  There are so many only ifs now but I want to remind everyone that each day is a gift and not a right.  I would like to pass along some sound advice my Mom once gave me.  She told me never to go to bed or leave the house mad, Let the little things go, things are things but people and feelings can't be replaced,enjoy each and every day,tell those people in your life how much you love them.  She was so right on with that one.  Brandon was here one minute and a moment later he was gone.  I would give anything to have him back but I am so thankful that he knew he was loved………So long for now Little Man…….And to my Mom take care of him till we meet again
