Ashley Brandon Kraus
Brandon Kraus...he was the love of my life at 18. Believe it or not, we never met. Online dating was the new ISH, and we made it work for four years. After that, it fell apart, he dated someone else and I moved on with hesitation.
He eventually contacted me again and told me he compared all of his girlfriends to me. I dont remember what I last said to him. The last time we spoke was in 2009.
My sister and I were talking about him and I decided to look him up on facebook.
Bing told me that he had an obituary.
I searched and searched online for answers, and Bing was correct.
Brandon Kraus and his fiance were riding a motorcycle and were struck by another vehicle. Brandon died in the hospital at 12 am. His fiance' survived. The article about the correction officer was dated for 2009 or either 2010.
I couldn't believe it. I just couldn't believe it.
I kept reading it over and over. I then started to search everywhere for any article that could tell me his DOB, where he was from. Unfortunately, I found out, and the growing fear turned into tears.
Brandon Kraus is dead.
He was only 28 years old.
I just couldn' wrap my mind around it. He died?
Now, at age 30, I am happily married yet I still mourned for him. I knew him intimately at one point in my life, and he was important.
I pray he knew Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
His fiance mourns to this day. I want to contact her, but I dont think I should.
It's been several days and I still sometimes think about how he passed away. His life was too short.
..............................I just dont know what else to say.
