Board & Brew and Brownies for Breakfast

Board & Brew and Brownies for Breakfast

Life lesson -- when your son dies, you can have brownies for breakfast.

On Wednesday, we went to Board & Brew for the first time since the accident. I was fine until I got to the counter to order. I'm sure no one has ever gotten that choked up about the Baja Wrap.

Then I saw the poster of Chandler they had put up right after the accident -- STAY STRONG! I lost it. The wonderful staff at B&B came and gave me hugs. I felt like Chandler was right there with us. Chandler's brother Chance stayed at B&B from 11:00 until about 7:00 that night listening to Chandler stories and absorbing the reality of the amazing impact his brother has made on the fabric of the Board & Brew community.

Brendan, Joey, and everyone from Board & Brew RSM (including the regulars) have been with us from the first minute the accident happened. They are an example of everything that is right about people in general and Millennials specifically. As crappy as this has been, they have provided so many bright spots along the way -- water, food, gift cards, hugs, texts, prayers.

Our tribe has grown. And we are in this together.
