The most painful goodbyes are the ones never said and never explained.Unknown


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Brandon Vance Dingley-Mitzel who was born in Pittsburgh Pa. and passed away on December 17, 2006. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.

Brandon was born in Pittsburgh April of 1982 to Nannette Dingley and John Mitzel.

Brandon was given the name Brandon Vance Dingley-Mitzel.

Brandon has three sisters;   Melissa Wade, Amanda Faust, and Brittany Mitzel

Brandon has three brothers; J. Brian Faust Jr. , Stephen Mitzel, and Jacob Popp

Brandon was an uncle. He has a niece Alaina Wade and a nephew Brennan Wade



I am Brandons oldest sister. I made this site for Brandon. Brandon was my baby when he was born. I was so happy to have a baby brother. I read to him, sang to him, and always wanted to hold him. Brandon called me Ninny because he couldnt say Missy. He was a beautiful baby. And always sweet. It is hard for us to believe he is gone. He was happy to be an uncle to my daughter and my son. He was very happy when I named my son after him. He loved little ones. Brandon was very good with children.

Without him I am not whole. A piece of me was stolen when he was killed. He was taken from me twice but this time I cant get him back. I miss him and I want him back. There is no way to describe how it feels to lose someone who is a part of you. Nobody can understand how his brothers and sisters feel. I will never let him be forgotten

Brandon was taken from his family one year ago today. It was a horrible time in all our lives. Today is a sad day for all of us as well. It is so hard to lose someone like Brandon. I miss him.
