My condolences to Wendy and to all of the Russo family. I consider myself lucky to have met Brandon, many years ago, and equally fortunate to have spent a lovely afternoon with Brandon and his family, not terribly long ago. He was handsome, talented, funny and kind. He was kind enough to reach out to me, at a time when my heart was broken. He did not live his life without positively impacting the lives of those around him. Some stars shine more brightly. Brandon's star did so. Rest in peace, sweet man.

Eddie, John, Frankie, Marie and family, I am very sorry to hear about Brandy. I trust each of you remember the fun times had years ago. The Russo's played a nice part of my growing up with lots of laughs and music. I have great memories of all of you. Sincerely, Gerry (Roche) Swanson.

May you rest in peace Brandy.You were always so respectful and considerate every time I ever spoke to you.A class act all the way.You were the type of person no one ever had a bad word to say about you. That says it all about a man.
My prayers are with the family today.

It is a very sad day when a great friend of 60 years passes away. We spent a lot of time together during high school and immediately afterwards. A very handsome and extremely funny man from a family of funny people. He was always a delight to be around--a laugh a minute. He loved Don Rickles. His humor was molded after Don's "insulting" style. He mastered it. I even enjoyed being the butt of his biting wit. It is somewhat appropriate that he and Rickles died during the same week. I watch on TV all the tributes and snippets being played for Don and laugh heartily at them, but at the same time laughing with Brandy--both were hilarious! Enjoy each others company. I will miss you very much dear friend.

Brandy was a man I respected from the day I met him at age 10 or so playing down at Everett Stadium. A true gentle sole.

To Eddie, Johnny, Frankie and Marie,
I just heard of Brandy's passing and I am extremely saddened by the news. Growing up on Cabot Street with all the Russos was a high point of my childhood. Brandy was always caring and compassionate. It was a privilege to call him my friend. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. The world is a better place because of Brandy and he will be missed.
My condolences to all of the Russo family.

My heart shattered into a million pieces. You were pure love, pure compassion and total loyalty. Then add in your humor and wit. A more beautiful man I cannot imagine. My love, my life. And, thank you for sharing your beautiful family with me; for they are now my family. Be happy in heaven my love; you are now with your Mom and Dad, and every one else you had lost. Plus, Brutus, of course! But, I am at peace knowing that in the future I will once again in your loving arms; and you'll be there to catch me.. As always, two souls entwined. You're loving wife, Wendy.
