24 year old Brandy formerly of Buckner Road was found in a dirty trailer at 605 trailer park unresponsive, she later died at UVA. Brandy leaves behind her baby girl Destiny who was born in December of last year. It has been said Brandy a drug user died from a drug overdose. It truly saddens me to think this poor precious baby will never know her mother why because her mother chose drugs and thugs.

It is very sad that this young lady died from drugs but to say she chose thugs is a misuderstanding of this ladys lifestyle. If you dont know her then you really shouldnt put her in your statics.

Suzie Mae, this young girl had a history of drugs. She surrounded herself w/the thug life and the thugs that come with it. I know from what I speak.

She had two other children as well. She had a problem, a disease, an addiction and it tragically took her life. Let her rest in peace. Don't trash her now that she's gone.

The disease of addiction wins and takes lives all the time just like cancer, or diabetes. It is a life long illness that some of us can arrest and some can't. I too am an addict and i have also lost loved ones from the disease of addiction. I have 61 days clean and sober today and it isn't my first try at recovery. It is not respectful for anyone to get online and bash this girl. The saying goes if the drug doesn't kill you the lifestyle will just like someone with diabetes eating candy and drinking soda could kill them and probably will. It isn't always easy to make the best decision. She had a disease- that doesn't mean she didn't love her children and family. Pete- this girl is someone's mother, daughter friend and/or family member. You should stop posting crap about her. You may have to walk similar shoes one day.

Don't you and your friends want to stop the BS of drugs all around you?
Don't y'all get sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Every day is spent trying to get high, looking for a high and wasting time and money on drugs-don't that get old?
Good Lord you know who the dealers are-they are your friends; the same ones who supplied Brandy with the very drug that killed her.
And where were you when she lay dying at 605?
Damn shame is all I can say...RIP Brandy.

I understand how addiction is an illness, it is also a choice; not different than being a diabetic, watching your diet and using insulin; people with addictions have options as well. You try hard, you fall down, you get back up and try again - especially with children involved because you don't want them to know what coming down feels like, or the longing of going back up or teach them how to search the carpet and floors for three hours looking for anything that may have fallen down knowing darn well if you found something it wouldn't do anything anyway. Illness, yes, I do agree to that, but choice yes. As an adult you have the knowledge to make choices, some good some bad and there are several programs and ways to get help that are free so anyone can get it if they need it. It is having the desire to want to change your life.

I have to disagree with you-having diabetes is not a choice. How person handles diabetes IS a choice.

Drug addicts fill an empty hole in their persona with drugs.

Brandy was damaged goods, she went on to have 3 babies; even they couldn't fill the empty hole in her soul.

What gets me is all the people who knew her, knew she was an addict and then stood by and fed into her addiction and even joined in with her. None of them have a conscience; I don't know how any of them can look at their reflection.

Poor motherless babies, crack heads and heroin addicts all around them; what kind of life do they have ahead of them.

What I am saying is that if you have an issue you should handle it. Some people are genetically predisposed to having issues with substance abuse and alcohol just as some people are genetically predisposed to diabetes or high BP, etc. I understand about that empty hole, I shot anything I could get for several years and when I thought I was pregnant I stopped. I understand that's not enough to make everyone stop but I have lived both sides. I do agree that the "friends" fueled the addiction, I remember if we heard of someone dying we ran out to find were they got their stuff from because we knew it was good. Would would be a complete tragedy here is if none of the friends learned anything from this and continued doing what they were doing previously and not seek help.
