    My condolences to the family and friends. Brandan was a very special young man. I haven't seen him in years but I remember him back to when he was a young boy. I always thought he was so very sweet, respectful and a joy to be around. The world is a darker place without his shining soul. My heart is completely broken. Rest well will be missed by many but never forgotten. I'm so grateful to have known you.
