“Brandon Dylan Ashur,” Anesa Ashur captioned a series of nostalgic images of herself with her late sibling. I could say so many things, but I’m not sure I could even put our life into words if I tried. What makes this beast so terrifying? Why did it feel compelled to pursue you?
“You’ve overcome so many obstacles in your 36 years that I never imagined we’d lose you to a pandemic. You are one of the most courageous individuals I know, and you pushed through no matter what the Internet said, no matter what people wanted to believe…. you demonstrated what an incredible spirit you are. To the moon and back, I adore you.”
“My brother fought covid, and tragically lost the battle,” she said in her touching tribute. Through streaming, he has influenced a large number of individuals. On YouTube, he has 1.5 million subscribers. Twitch’s never-ending streamers.
“Without even realizing it, he faced so many demons while helping millions of people. I can’t believe this is actually occurring. He stood firm in the face of every snide remark made by those who wanted him to fail. He was incredible. He’s incredible. This irritates me tremendously.”
