Mrs. Brannan was an inspiration to my life. She was a wonderful teacher, administrator and friend. She will be truly missed. She loved all of her students as if they were her own children. I will always remember her with a smile on her face and how much she loved to go to watch the Florida Gators play ball. This is a loss to a community that takes pride in having strong and compassionate teachers and administrators, she will be missed. To the Brannan Family you are in my prayers and Mrs. Kim will always have a special place in my heart.

Mrs.Brannan was an excellent principal who was greatly loved by the students and faculty. The students and faculty are devasted by this tradegy. Westside was a sad place to be this morning, the children were just in shambles and the crying eyes of children and factuly filled the school. She will be missed and never forgotten.

Was Mrs. Brannan wearing her belts? Its pretty hard to get ejected from a car if you are properly belted in. I'd give her the failing grade of "F" in Common Sense if she was not wearing her belts.

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Brannon personally, it's always a sad thing to lose someone who obviously was passionate about her job. May she rest in peace. My prayers are with her family and those who loved her.

I don't think anyone needs you to grade her, jerk. We are greiving here and don't need people like you leaving stupid comments such as that. You must not have anyone that cares about you, or you would think about how stupid comments like that would hurt her family.

No, she wasn't wearing her seat belt. But that is besides the point. A dedicated, well loved and respected lady was died. A tragedy for the entire county. Show some respect people. Educators like Mrs. Brannan are the reason I am proud to have gone into the field of education myself!

Safety belt guy,,,,, GET A LIFE & A LITTLE COMPASSION!!! You must be a miserable person! How rude & inconsiderate can you be? I pray that her CHILD & husband NEVER read your STUPID comment! I live in Greenville, SC now & just received the very sad news from my mom, that the wife of a life-long friend died in a car accident. While trying to get more information before contacting my friend (Mrs. Brannan's husband), I never dreamed that a comment such as yours would appear!

How could you say this? I am sure her family is wishing she wore her seatbelt, but how would you feel if her young son read this? Or if your mother died in the same circumstance and some ignorant rude person made that comment to you?

I'm with the safety belt guy on this. It seems that there are just too many bad drivers in the south. The lesson to be learned is don't overcorrect F-
