35

My parents had a bench put in at a big park by our house in Texas, and the bench has a plaque next to it with a dedication to my brother. It says something like, "Brandon Dennis Collmar, April 26, 1976-September 9, 2007, You're forever in our hearts. Love, Mom, Dad, Ryan, and Kari." Today my mom, Beck, and I went to the park to hang out at Brandon's bench. I put Beck on the bench and we tried taking pictures, but he didn't want to hold still.



Uh...almost the exact same weird pose...


This disgusting thing fell on my leg. 

Whenever I read the "You're forever in our hearts" part, it makes me think of the time my mom told me what was going to be on the plaque. I don't remember if I misread the text or if she mistyped it, but I thought it was "You're forever in our ears."

Anyway, happy birthday, Brando! How do you celebrate there?

I'm sure he's smiling, especially when he sees little Beck on that bench.

Very neat idea with the bench (: Those picture poses are quite similar... Like mother like daughter!

Nice to see Noah isn't the only one who eats wood.
