below was written by a friend of mine and read at the service.
She was like a second mother to Brandon.
He was a handsome young man. Someone you could not pass by.
For he was not one of the empty souls you sometimes encounter. His eyes were
a window through which was seen who he was no matter his situation. He was a
gift to all who knew him.
As a child held his arms open to everyone he knew. He never judged anyone.
He only hoped to receive what he gave…unconditional love. It was as if his worth
depended on it.
He loved his family deeply. His mother, brother and sister were the ones he
knew he could depend on. In return he gave them his loyalty.
His friends he considered a blessing. He never judged them nor forsake them.
They knew they could count on him. They knew they could let down their guard with
him and be safe as who they were. His heard was a place they could rest.
As a young man, inside he was still the loving person he was as a child. He
believed that one day he would be given what he desperately longed for… security.
His greatest joy
was his son. He did everything in his power to be the kind of father
all children deserve, they kind he never had. He did not consider it a responsibility.
He considered it a privilege.
He deserved love.
He deserved security.
He deserved significance.
He deserved peace.
For us who had the honor of knowing him, we realize our loss…
He will be missed…
Rest in Peace, my son….
No more pain…
I love you dearly.. and miss you more.

On Apr. 26, 2004, Marcel ended his life in a Memphis
motel room, leaving behind his wife, two daughters,
his parents, a sister and a younger brother,
and numerous friends and relatives.
You never said I’m Leaving, You never said Good-Bye
You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why
A million times we’ve needed you, A million times we’ve cried
If our love could have saved you, You never would have died
It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone
For part of us went with you, The day God called you home
A heart of gold stopped beating, Two shining eyes at rest
God broke our hearts to prove, He only takes the best
To some you are forgotten, To others just a part of the past
But to us who loved and lost you, Your memories will always last
In memory of Marcel, our loved son
Who God called home to be with him
We love and miss you every day that goes by.
