Marianne Love — Remembering Brandy

In a poignant post, Marianne Love/Slight Detour remembers 24-year-old Brandy Post, who died in that Bonner County fire, along with 35-year-old Jason Mitchell and their young son here. Below, you’ll find thoughts that Brandy shared as part of a turn-of-the-century project.

Birthdate: July 13, 1982

Interests/School Activities: I am interested in medication, and I enjoy playing volleyball, basketball and golf.

What you’ll remember most about Sandpoint at the turn of the centry: What I will remember about Sandpoint High School—I haven’t been going to Sandpoint very long, but I think I’ll remember how hard it was for me to make friends.

What you’ll remember most about the nation and the world: I will remember all of the school shootings and how people thought 2000 was going to be the end of time.

Music you’ll remember: I will always love my father’s music the most. He would play Christian music, in the churches. I will also remember the Guns n’ Roses; my sisters and brothers would rock out to this song when we were kids.

Fads you’ll remember: I will remember bell bottoms, sweat shirts with hoods, shiny clothes, white anything and platforms.

Favorite school memory: Doing a pole dance, for the Elk Mountain Academy boys.

Technology that makes your life easy: The telephone and the computer

Your all-time favorite book: I don’t have a favorite book, but I enjoy reading poems and reading about certain medications.

Plans for after high school: I plan to be a pharmacist.

Biggest fear for the future: I fear that I will lose my mother to her drug addiction. I also fear that I will drop out of high school.

Lifetime goal/hope for the future: To go to college and become a pharmacist.
