Thank You From Brandy Thomas
I would like to thank you all for the support you showed me, my children, and my family during Brandon's funeral and in the weeks since. I cannot tell you what it meant to all of us to see all those wreckers and trucks with lights flashing. Brandon would never have dreamed so many people would rally around us. It is amazing to me that so many people who did not even know Brandon are so willing and ready to help us through this time, and all that entails.
When I was awakened on 11/12/2009, I had no idea how my life was about to change forever. For weeks now I have begged, pleaded, and prayed that this was not truly happening in my life. I've seen a loss in my line of work, but never did I imagine that something like this could happen to me. I don't think any of us truly believe tragedy can touch our lives until it happens. I would have never imagined that this work was so dangerous, but that is just my naivety to the industry. Men and women in the repossession industry do not get the respect they deserve.
I wish that you all would have had the opportunity to meet Brandon. He was an awesome guy, with the biggest heart and silliest personality. I have said it a million times lately but he was a big kid himself and he loved hanging out with our kids. If he wasn't working you could find him in the play room with the kids playing some silly game or on the xbox. He had a lot of life still left to live and I think that this is what makes this so much harder. I try not to dwell on the negative and what can't be undone. God has a plan and someday when I meet him I am sure this somehow will all make sense. Until then I just have to take one day at a time, and keep putting one foot in front of the other. It really helps my children to know that even though this horrible man took their father, there are still wonderful people in the world that do great things. I cannot think of the right words to say to express my gratitude, so I will simply say Thank You.
I truly believe that "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away" and Brandon and I had many of those moments together, for that I am eternally thankful.
Brandy Thomas & Family
