In the caption, she wrote lyrics from Willie Nelson’s song “Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground.”

Then Brandi continued, “I always smile when I think of you. I was most definitely a daddy’s girl. I can’t think of a time that you ever got mad at me or yelled at me. I absolutely, used that to my advantage. I will miss you terribly. Now if everyone I love, could stop dying in such close proximity that would be great.”

A couple of weeks after that, she shared a post stating that she was trying to “laugh through the tears” in relation to losing her dad.

Around the same time, the news broke about Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz’s breakup. The couple previously appeared on Storage Wars together but announced their split in 2020 after being separated for a couple of years.
