You are in our thoughts and prayers. What a beautiful Angel!
Be strong! And may his soul rest in peace.
Robin, Jeff, Ann and all your families...Brandt must have had a lot of his Grampa Van Smith in him--they never met a stranger, and they impacted every life they touched. Jim and I send our deepest sympathies for your physical loss of this precious boy, and we rejoice with heaven as God and all his angels and Brandt's loved ones welcomed him to his eternal home. Sue & Jim Lemmon, Coal Valley, IL (Van's auntie)

I dont even know what to say... i got to meet this Angel a couple times and heaven has gained soooo much from such a little person. Sorry to all the family, may you be filled with strengh and love
I did not know Brandt but learned about him thru Team Brandt on Facebook. My heart and prayers go out to the Ballenger family. When I was young I asked, Why do people die? The answer I got was God needed them in heaven
Wishing the family my deepest thoughts and prayers! Brandt truly was and always will be an inspiration to so many. God Bless you Robin and the rest of the family.
Although I didn't know Brandt personally, I admired his courage retold through the people that did know him. My heart is breaking for you. May God be with you through this difficult time and may you have peace in knowing this child of God is home.
We wish you peace through this difficult time. Our sincerest condolences. The Williamson Family, Travis, Jessica, Kelsey and Adrienne
We are so sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and your family.
Yes, Heaven has gained a Very Special Angel !!!
Though his time on Our Earth was short, ‘Super Brandt' taught ALL OF US the true meaning of courage and tenacity while sprinkling in a special kind of humor that calmed others while he himself was hurting.
May God bestow Special Blessings upon Brandt and the entire Ballenger Family.
For Brandt: Why did the turtle cross the road? (To get to the SHELL station! *giggles*)

I am so sorry for your loss. He was truly an amazing and inspiring boy. Thank you for sharing his journey with us. He will forever be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers as will your entire family.
To all of Brandt's Loved Ones,
Please accept my deepest sympathy. I will always remember Brandt for his big grin and his wonderful hugs. He had a zest for life. Brandt was always happy and always thinking about what can we do next in Kindergarten.
His story is a reminder how precious life is and how small acts of kindness make the world a better place. My thoughts and prayers with you during this difficult time.
What a sweet little boy God now has in Heaven. I will miss seeing him at Grandma Sue and Grandpa Joe's house as he walked home with Joe from School. My excited dogs would watch the walk home, waiting for Brandt's visit and doggie treats before he went in the house. It was such a cute thing and they loved it when Brandt would ask then to come over to visit and play with him in his grandparents back yard.
My condolences to Sue, Joe,Tammy, Robin and Jeff and the entire family. Brandt was loved.
In his short life, this wonderful boy touches so many lives and hearts! He was such an inspiration, staying strong when most would have broke. His energy was evident through the many updates the world was given by your family. Thank you for sharing him with all of us! Your family is in our prayers!
Rest on peace u are one the nicest person i ever met
I'm so sorry for your loss want a great little boy! Gone but not forgotten...
Brandt will never be forgotten... He will never know the great gift he gave me but I will be forever grateful.... Prayers for his family.
My deepest condolences go out to you Robin and your family. May Brandt find peace with Jesus. I pray for love strength and healing for you & your family .
Robin and Jeff,
I am so sorry for the loss of your loving son. Through your updates on Brandt we were all able to see how amazing, courageous, loving and giving your child was. Brandt has deeply touched the lives of so many. Thank you for sharing his journey with us.
My thoughts & prayers go to your family & friends. Brandt touched so many lives. Heaven gained a beautiful little boy who will always be in our hearts & minds.
I learned about Brandt at a Higher Things conference. Over 1300+ people learned about him in one day. Reading his obituary made me realize that we have the same birthday! Except mines in 1998. God Bless Brandt.
I am so very sorry to hear of your loss! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Please take comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain.
We are so sorry to hear that it was time for Brandt to join Jesus in heaven. What an outstanding little boy he was.
He was and is remembered in prayer by so many, including Chapter HR in Belleville. My prayers are with all of you and especially with Ann, my PEO sister.
Much love, Marcie Uhl
Our thoughts and prayers are with brandts family. This is a hard time, but just think, it's for a better part in his life. He won't be suffering anymore because he will be having fun with god. Robin and her husband were two of the most supportive parents ever. Their son, always had that smile on his face. He will be deeply missed, but remember Brandt, everyone loves you! Team Brandt forever!
My heart goes out to Jeff and Robin on their loss. Brandt was a heck of a fighter and such an adorable kid!
Jeff & Robin we are thinking of you and your family. Brandt was a very special boy and will forever be remembered.
I am so sorry for this terrible loss of such a lovely and happy little boy. May his precious soul rest in peace with Jesus, and I pray for healing for all who knew him, especially his parents.
