This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Brody on June 16, 2010 and passed away on January 9, 2018. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.

Heaven gained a beautiful angel last night. My sweet perfect boy Brody went to be with his best friends Zoe and Riley in Heaven after a long battle with lung cancer. It was diagnosed five months ago, while I know he’s fought for us closer to a year. I know he’s playing with his Wubba and figuring out where all the good chicken is. 

Brody, since the day we adopted you, you were a perfect fit in our family. You and your Mommy had a special bond where we knew what each other needed just by a look. You brought so much joy and companionship, I’m not sure if that can ever be replaced. We went through such hard times together when it felt like you watched over me and made sure I’d be alright. You were my right hand man, my buddy, and best friend. We’d take car rides together just because you loved it. And Nana’s house to see Grandpa was one of you favorite activities. You loved all you grandparents and aunts and uncles so much. You loved everyone so much - unless you thought they would hurt your Mommy... then that was a different story. Thank you for wearing all the goofy stuff I made you wear because you were so cute in it. I know you did it because you only cared about what your Mommy wanted and making me happy.  Thank you for teaching your little brother how to be a good boy. We didn’t want to take away your “only child” status especially while you were sick, but wanted our next boy to be just like you because you were so special. You graciously helped because that’s what you knew your Mommy wanted. Thank you for that look you gave us when we were in PA this fall (and a little worried about you) when you purposely looked back at us on that trail that said “I’m doing ok and having the best time of my life.” I won’t ever forget that look. You guarded and protected me as if it were your one job in life. Well sweet boy, rest easy because you did a job well done. I couldn’t have found a better boy. I’m so, so sorry I couldn’t save you. If I could’ve figured out a way, I would’ve given absolutely everything to do so. Thank you for trying to eat all your medicines even though I know they weren’t good. You surprised all the doctors with how long you fought. Thank you for fighting until your precious little body just couldn’t fight any longer. I’m sorry we had to “make the call”, but when I adopted you, I promised you I would take care of you until the end - and I meant it. And thank you most of all for fighting as long as you did for us. 

You didn’t want to leave us as much as we didn’t want to lose you. I pray that you found peace. You never deserved what this life brought you, but I thank God for giving you to us. You were the best thing that happened to us. Well sweet boy, I long for the day we’ll meet again and my heart can be put back together. Until then, a large piece of my heart always be missing. Rest easy baby boy. You’ve reached your end of watch. Mommy loves you now and forever and always.
