    We saw Brandon, grow from a curly haired kid, with a huge grin, into a handsome young man. Our children played, grew and learned, together.
    Every family, experiences turbulence at times, but, having a young life force taken, is more than a family should have to bare. If only there were some words that would help ease the pain…
    Hoping that you are able to find some comfort in the weeks and months ahead, to get you through. Much love to you all.
    In my mind, Brandon, will always be a smiling, rambunctious kid, who loved a great adventure…may he rest in peace.


  • I know I don’t know you guys, but I did know Brandon. He was my brother Shawns best friend since they were kids. I remember Brandon coming over to our house all the time and he was so outgoing. He will definitely be missed by many. My heart goes out to all his family. I’m so sorry for your guys loss.
