Fresh Fields was sent by Brandy.

I am sure she had an extra special spot reserved for her in heaven. Glad she spent as much time with us as she did, but could never have been enough. We are grateful for all that she gave to us, and she gave us her all. She lives on in our hearts and our children. The love, strength, and wisdom she gave to us we will pass on. Love, Brandy, Steve, Isaiah, Saleha, Zebadiah
