i wish i remembered this.

My cousin Brandon passed away a few weeks ago. I haven't really known what to say about it, you know? Theres not much you can say about it. Especially on the Blogosphere.
He was sick for a long while. I remember the last time i saw him, he was singing 'do you remembaaah, the 21st night of septembaaaaah!' haha i thought it was so cute because i could tell he was so sick and so frail, but still so happy. and now whenever i hear that song i think of him.

I wish so bad i would have known him better.
It seems like thats a trend when people you know pass away.
And then when they really are gone, you realize that you have regrets.
and you really don't have that much time here.
My sister jackie made me realize that when i was on the phone with her the other day.
No matter the effort to be close to someone, make it. They are family.
Especially family.
Don't take advantage of it.
I wish i woulda made more of an effort to know him,
even though he was quite a bit older than i was.
but from what my sisters and mom have told me,
he was the sweetest of the Tygerson bunch.
(Sorry other cousins, but its true.)

My sister tami wrote down a memory with him of when we were younger, and i wish so bad that i remember it. read it here

Love you brandon. See you soon.
I hope Grandma T is talking your ear off :)

Death is ALWAYS hard. I'm sorry for your loss, and I totally understand what you are saying here.

i am not offended by you saying he was the sweetest tygerson cousin (he was). tygerson arent particularly known for being sweet.
