To those closest to Brandon, I want to express my deepest regret of his premature passing. While I never knew Brandon personally, my younger brother was in his class, and I can't imagine how difficult this time must be for Brandon's family and friends. I know that his passing has left a huge impact on numerous people in McPherson and otherwise, and I wish your family the best of luck with the hard times ahead. Find comfort and solace in the knowledge that his life has positively affected far more than those who knew him closely and personally, and his memory will stay strong forever.

I remember Brandon when I first moved into my house and he and his parents were my neighbors. He was a darling young boy, and I was sad to lose him as a neighbor when the family moved a few years later. He grew up to be a very good looking young adult, and smart, as well. He was such a hard and conscientious worker when he helped his dad with his lawn care business. My heart goes out to Brett and Danelle, and my thoughts and prayers will be with you two in these difficult days.

Donna, so sorry for the loss of your grandson.

Dear Dawnelle, Brett, Jake, Lacy and Monica I am so sorry for the loss of Brandon. Our family has so many memories him growing up. Fourth of July hasn't been the same since you all left the neighborhood. We bring it up every year and now it will always be our memorial day to him. He and Collyn loved acting out "Pearl Harbor" as they would shoot off their fireworks! There are so many pictures in my mind of him and Collyn doing stuff together.
I hope you find the strength from God, family and friends to get through these next days and weeks ahead. If there is anything I can do I am here, please know that.

I cannot imagine the pain you must be experiencing at this time. All the the hurts in life cannot measure the loss of a child. I am keeping you and your family in my prayers. Please let me know if you need anything in the coming days. I'm happy to just sit and let you talk it out.
