Michelle Sharma said her son Xavier Brandon, a Killeen man, died on Sept. 23 after his motorcycle crashed at the intersection of Nolan and Range Rd.

"The birthdays are always a big deal in our house," Sharma said.

Something she said will be the hardest to get through now that her son is gone.

"He never missed a celebration. he would sit right here on the corner. That's the hardest is that this spot will never be full," Sharma added.

A spot where her 20-year-old son, Xavier Brandon use to sit is now empty.

Sharma said her son was riding a motorcycle when he crashed on at the intersection of Nolan and Range road, killing him instantly.

"He veered off into the ditch and then had a head on collision with the big stone sign out there," Sharma said. "I didn't want to believe it. I actually thought that they were pulling my leg. My husband and whoever was maybe in on the joke."

But the punch line never came. Now all she has left of her son are memories.

"Memories everywhere around here like everywhere. Going in the front yard looking out the backyard." Sharma said. "It helps, helps and hurts at the same time."

A pain that only time can heal.

 He always was very good at taking care of his younger brothers and siters. that's my daughter he was also a very goofy guy," Sharma said.

For now, she believes at the end of the day she knows her son would want his family, including his wife and his son to be happy.

"He'd say mom, make sure you find soemthing that makes you happy. Don't think about me anymore. Be there for Nathaniel. help out Cheyenne and I think that's what he woudl want me to do," Sharma said.

The 20-year-old leaves behind his one-year-old son and wife.

Central Texas News Now has reached out to Fort Hood for the full report of his accident.

If you would like to help with funeral expenses, the family has set up a Fundly account and funeral arrangements are set for Thursday, Oct. 5 at 11 a.m. at Keys Valley Baptist Church in Belton.
