    Dear Louise; I was very sad to see the news of Brandons passing. Although I did not know your children I remember Mrs.”B” speaking about them. She really loved both of them dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Jacquie as you grieve this untimely lose. I would appreciate Tea Time together when you are up to it to remember old times and the bright spot Mrs “B” was in my life as a new mother then. Take Care!

    Dear Louise & Jacquie,

    Words cannot express our sorrow to hear of our dear Brandon’s passing. Our deepest condolences to you and your family.

    I will miss you Brandon. My Crazy Lefty Virgo Freak – you were my Birth Sign Twin. Two Peas in a Pod! “Ammers Banana-ers” you called me. (You had a special name for everyone).

    Brandon, growing up you were like a little Brother to me – a great friend and a pain in the you know what all at the same time!
    Knowing you almost my entire life, remembering so many great times and the not so great times – there are too many to mention! But the memories I recall fondly were your sense of humour and the great one liners you had – always made me laugh!

    We will miss you and love you forever! Rest in peace “Brando”. Forever in our hearts and thoughts until we meet again! XO

    so many great memories….favorites? his giggles as a toddler, the trip to Disney, listening to him talk about racing with his dad, his reminiscing about what he and he sister used to do as kids (shhh)..etc. etc. We will miss him, but know he is at peace and with all our family members that love him too.

    45 years ago I met a blonde haired blue eyed boy, Brandon Bonham. In our many years as friends he made me roar with laughter as well as cry tears of anger. The memories are too many to name here but bicycles, forts, ‘the tracks’, are just a few. It feels like those were the golden days of our childhood and I wouldn’t trade them for anything. ( even getting pushed off my bike all the time!) Already miss you Babs, your Cotton Jenny xo

    Dear Louise and Jacquie,
    There is no pain, more far reaching and deeper, than your loss of your Brandon, your son, and brother to Jacquie.

  • Micheline [Boyle] Cassidy Posted July 18, 2018 7:51 am

    ….. and yes, to my dear sister, Louise,

    I truly believe the unmeasured intangibles in your gentle and kind ways, provided a vital strength to Brandon, though its thread was not ‘visible’ until his final days.

    We will be reminded of this thread when we recall Brandon’s quick wit, his inherent love of sailing, car racing and photography. Lastly, his visits to Montebello Park, a place, where our family share special memories, of early years.

    As we find a way to say goodbye, we will carry these pieces of heartbeat with us.

    Love always,
    Micheline and Michael

    JOHNNY…BATMAN here…So…WTF ? I don’t even know what to say…I can’t believe U’ gone…U always said we were gonna die just at the right time… But it wasn’t your time yet.
    I can’t begin to describe the times we had over 35 plus years…But we always made it home to Rock another day.
    Are you kidding me ? Joplin…Morrison…Hendricks…BONHAM ?
    Listen man…I need to hang around here a little longer…Gotta look after Channy…and keep my promise to you to always keep an eye on Jacq.
    I’ll never forgive you for leaving all that loved you…and I’ll visit you from time to time… But I’ gonna kick your ass when I get to the other side !
    Rest In Peace Little Buddy

    I would like to thank 610 TALK RADIO for the amazing on air condolence to Brandon. He truly enjoyed interacting with you all on so many different topics. His touring the WHITE HOUSE OF ROCK was one of his greatest days. Thanks for sharing his last interactions with you to all your listeners, and enjoying his friendship it was so great to hear. He was a huge fan!
