With a photo of his mom on a laptop, Brandon Holbrooks, 15, sits in his step-grandfather's apartment in Glendale. Brandon and his sister Ashley, 18, moved in with their step-grandfather after their mom died, possibly from an asthma attack, during the Christmas break. Her funeral is Saturday. Their father committed suicide three years ago. They are looking to the community for help with funeral and moving expenses.
