Brandon's family are devastated over his sudden and senseless death.  It was stated that he would do anything for anybody.  He will be forever mourned. 

Brandon is survived by many loving friends and family members including his mother. 

Pray for justice for Brandon. 
Father, place Brandon on the
stairway to Heaven

Thank you for your service to your country, Brandon. 

Pray for the 20 year olds who die by misadventure.  They are with us one moment and gone the next.  Yesterday, they were just boys.

God save us from the drunk and doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that Brandon is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
