Brandon Self Funeral Fund

Brandon Self was taken from us too early.  Although he faced difficulties in life most of us cannot comprehend, it forged him into a kind, intelligent person.  He loved sharing his passions with everyone he could and you couldn't help but be swept up with his enthusiasm from his love of Big Hero 6, to his wonderfully realistic video game creations and his expansive  knowledge of the Star Wars universe.  He brought his joy of life with him everywhere and shared it with everyone.  The world is poorer for his loss.  

Brandon recently graduated from R L Turner High school and was attending college at Brookhaven College with the intention of a degree in graphic design.  Having seen some of the video games he created, there is no doubt the career would have suited him.

The day of November 13 started like any other day until any parent's nightmare became reality and Brandon was suddenly gone.  While we know he is in a better place, a parent can never plan for the loss of their child.  In this devastating time for them, we are asking for any assistance you can spare in order to make this unplanned and unwelcome event one that will honor the way Brandon lived and give his parents the closure they need.

Thank you so much for the outpouring of support so far. It seems Brandon has touched so many lives in his time here. For those wanting to attend his services:
