Brandon Werner's Family Relief Fund

Heather was confused when she awoke at 1am to the sound of Baby Liam jumping in his bouncy toy rather than tucked away in his crib. She took note that it appeared that all the lights in their home were on and Brandon wasn't lying next to her. It was Thursday night/Friday morning and she had fallen asleep early after a long day at the office and dinner out with Brandon and Liam. As she jarred herself awake, she quickly searched the house and with no sign of Brandon, she dialed his number. As she heard his cell ring inside their apartment, panick set in. It was then that her nightmare began. No words can ever articulate the heartbreak that Heather endured as she found her best friend and father of her child slumped over, unconscious and lifeless in their kitchen floor.

In the early AM hours of Friday, September 29, 2017, Brandon Werner --Father, Husband, Son, Brother, Friend--was pronounced dead  at the far, too young age of 27 years--tragically impacting the lives of everyone who loved him.

The pain the family is enduring is beyond measure and hard to put into words. Bridget and Johnny--facing the horrific reality of losing a child; their baby. Something no parent should ever experience. Mike, Mariah and Ben--losing their brother; their lifelong friend. Petey and Kip--their Son-n-law; who they love dearly. Baby Liam - just 10 months old; his Daddy and provider. And Heather. Sweet, precious Heather. She's lost everything. Heather has barely been able to get out of bed and the one thing I've heard her say over and over again--"I've lost my best friend. I've lost everything. I want him back." With the tragic passing of Brandon, Heather is a widow at just 31 years old.

For those who knew Brandon, we all know how important his family was and the pride he took in providing for them. He was an incredibly hard worker and always willing to do whatever it took to get the job done. I know if Brandon were able to make just a single wish, it would be, "please take care of my family."

Please join me in lifting up the WERNER FAMILY and helping to alleviate the financial burden that accompanies the sudden death of a 27 year old, young father. Proceeds raised will be put towards honoring Brandon through a Memorial Service and the balance will be donated to Heather and Baby Liam in helping them to get back on their feet as Heather faces her new life as a single mom.

Please share on your Facebook and with friends and family. Every dollar truly counts. And beyond anything else, please keep praying for this family. Your love and support is appreciated more than they can ever express.

Thank you. xo
