About: In My Neighbourhood
This Network of Neighbourhood websites is dedicated to the memory of Brandyn Miller.
Brandyn was a young man with a talent for anything computer related. He originally developed his first Neighbourhood site in late 2002, in response to a request from his mom Suzanne, an area Realtor.
She was looking for a way to reach out and give something back to the Neighbourhoods that had supported her as a Realtor. A way to give them something of value that would draw them together as Neighbours and give them a “One Stop Shopping” venue to search for services and activities , as well as promote awareness of the help, service and assistance that she, as their Realtor could offer.
Brandyn developed the first site Summer-hill.ca in 2002. The feedback was great and he went on to develop, host and maintain a group of sites in the Newmarket /Aurora area, teaching his mom how to update the ongoing posts which the residents submitted to their Neighbourhood site.
It was highly successful and the neighbours began sending thank you emails and enjoying this free local venue for the posting of their home businesses, hobbies or activities and simply connecting with what was going on in their neighbourhood.
Brandyn accomplished all this while he was awaiting a double lung and heart transplant
to correct a birth defect.
He hoped that when he got well, he could turn this Neighbourhood group into a much larger Network that could benefit many more Neighbourhoods and by pursuing area businesses as sponsors, he would have the beginnings of a wonderful service business that could also accommodate his health issues.
On May 16th 2005, Brandyn received his transplant call. He was so optimistic and excited that he would finally have a chance for the new life he dreamed of.
Sadly, Brandyn did not survive the surgery and passed away on May 17th, 2005.
However, he had done such a great job of building his network of servers running in Mom’s basement that the sites ran trouble free, with mom continuing the updates until late Fall 2014.
By that time, the software that the sites were running on was no longer supported and it was necessary to rewrite the sites and find them a new hosting facility.
Suzanne and Brandyn’s sister Tiffany were determined that his legacy must continue. Nine years of running virtually by themselves was a sign that they were meant to be.
The sites are being updated into WordPress and the first group is being reintroduced in their new format, in early 2016
The goal of Suzanne and Tiffany is to turn this Network into the business that Brandyn envisioned,
so that his dream lives on, even though he does not.
One special angel is definitely smiling down on your Neighbourhood families.
Please support InMyNeighbourhood.
