Months after losing her fiance, a Greenwood mother had to start thinking about the school supplies her 5-year-old would need for kindergarten.

Brandi Moore, 29, had no idea what her son would need to start school or how she would pay for it. Her boyfriend, Brandon Rogers, died in November of heart disease, just before his 29th birthday. Now, Moore is trying to meet the needs of three young boys, ages 6 months, 3 and 5, who are now without the man they called dad.
