Honoring the Past.
Brandon was one of the first children in our Daddy’s Light Pilot Program. His father, Steve, died in August of 2012 from esophageal cancer. Family Lives On Volunteers interviewed Brandon in January 2013, when he was 14, and he chose to continue visiting Wildwood, NJ as his tradition.
His father loved Wildwood and they would take a long weekend there almost every year- they usually went in May before it got too busy. They always stayed at the Acacia Beachfront Motel in Wildwood Crest.
Dad’s favorite restaurants were Urie’s and Duffy’s, and he would always let Brandon play as much as he wanted at the arcade.
Brandon’s Mom said in an email recently, “I just wanted to share some photos from Brandon’s tradition weekend in Wildwood Crest NJ. We had a nice time away while continuing the tradition that we had with Steve <3
Thank you all SO much!”
Family Lives On will continue to help Brandon celebrate his Wildwood New Jersey tradition in his father’s honor, every year until he is 18.
