My niece is holding up better then I'd expect and far better than I would in the same circumstance. A ton of folks came out for the visitation, family, childhood friends, and friends from his service with the Marine Corps. Melanie did a great job creating photo displays for her ex-husband and it was easy to see he loved to laugh and that his friends and family were extremely important to him. And that he adored his little girl. One thing I didn't know is that Brandon also had artistic talent. Three of his works were displayed; two paintings and a poster-sized pencil drawing. I really wish I'd known him better.
