The passing of Brandon Harper

As you all may have learned, my brother Brandon Harper passed away September 13, 2018. He had just gotten off from work at Universal at 11:30 pm and was in the car accident at 11:52 pm. Brandon had moved down to Orlando, Fl to be with his two kids; Jordan(15) and Brianna(10). He was trying to start his life back on track down there after coming home and staying here with his mother before she had passed away. At the moment he was working two jobs, at Universal and Amazon to save up for an apartment. We believe at the time of the accident he fell asleep behind the wheel which made him run into the back of a semi-truck.

Me and his sister Asjhra believed because of how bad the accident was, we would need to have him cremated. We both decided that depending on how much life insurance he had we will bring his body up to his hometown Chicago, IL and have a funeral for him, or we will still have a service for him, but he will be cremated.  We later found out with the help of Aunt Paula/Auntie PJ and the medical examiners  that Brandon body was still intact. Brandon is still identifiable as Brandon V. Harper! Because of this, we are determined to bring him home so he can be laid to rest next to his beloved mother. 

We all believed he had life insurance set in stone, but it turns out he did not.  At the moment, he only had something set in stone for his kids future rather than for himself. The money will be used to help cover the cost of the funeral and to bring his body from Orlando, FL to Chicago, IL. If you can lend a helping hand it will be appreciated. At the moment the funeral is set for September 28th in his hometown Chicago, IL. More details on that will come. Thank you all for the love and support that has been given. His family appreciates you all.


**Update**
Thank you all for the love and support. We appreciate all the love that has been sent our way. The funeral for my brother was 9/28/18.  Even though we had the funeral we are still paying for the cost of everything. As mention, he didn't have life insurance to cover the cost of his funeral. He had the bare min. at Universal but that is going towards the kids when they turn the age of 18.
