Today Brandon, I pray for your family and the many lives that you touched. Even after 9 years, the pain is still deep and I know will never heal. But I know you hear me. I can't help but to laugh when you make your presence known and so many times I say out loud, "I know Brandon" or "Very funny Brandon!" Even though you aren't here on Earth in body, you are forever in our hearts in spirit. Miss you always.
Brandon my baby brother, I miss you, but I know you are with me when ever I need you, but I just wish I could look into those boyish eyes again and tell you that I do love you!
Were has time gone two years and not a single day passes I dont miss you. Time helps but it doesnt heal.
Brandon its been along year I miss you. When your best friend is not around its no fun I cant wait tell we get to see each other agian. So many things have changed in one year. Angela and I have a very beautiful little girl I can see you in her that I am greatful for her name is Delana Louise. One thing is for sure she has the greatest guardian angel ever to watch over her. They say it gets easier well it doesnt people say they know what its like well they dont because nobody ever had Brandon Wayne for a brother.
God Blessed me with the birth of a beautiful baby boy January 17th, 1980 whom I named Brandon. When you were named I didn't know at the time how appropriate the name would be. It suggest a dashing young man
with a vivid imagination and a strong competitive streak. A Celtic name translated to mean "SWORD". Brandon a compassionate person with a deep concern for others. This fine young man is a REAL TREASURE. I loved and cherished you from the moment I held you in my loving arms. When you came home your brother was so excited and so loving. From that love a brotherly bond became very strong. Throughout your life you were blessed with several good friends but your brother was always your "BEST FRIEND". I was truly blessed with a very LOVING and CARING SON. You were my BABY as your brother always would say. You faced many challenges and obstacles as you grew up. But you persevered. Some things came hard for you but you never backed down. Track season your senior year was an example. You hurt your back at one of the Rich Hill meets vaulting but you continued to pratice and compete the remainder of the season. At District was when your body said enough is enough. You really loved to pole vault. On your graduation day you were in a lot of pain but you stood proud and walked the walk. You took a week or so after graduating for treatment and to let your back rest then you went right to work as a labor. You continued to have back problems but it never stopped you. You worked hard for everthing you had. You seldom missed work giving up going on our yearly family vacations. That was always a bonding time for the family. Back in December 2001 you were having problems with your back. One morning you decided to go have a treatment. You could have stayed home that day but instead you went on to work. You had to park in a different area because you were late. When you left work that afternoon you were confronted with the vandalism of your vehicle and the theft of several items totaling almost $3500. That was an expensive half days work because it was all out of pocket. Yes, you were angry that everything you had worked so hard for was taken by someone that had no values. But as always you took it in stride and persevered. Mother's Day 2002 you gave me a beautiful Thomas Kincade teapot with a floral arrangement. You knew I liked his artwork. A Mother's Day Gift that I will always CHERISH. This Mother's Day will not be the same because December 10th, 2002 was the last time I got to hold you in my arms.
I held you when you came into this world "WHAT A JOY" and when you departed "A HEART WRENCHING PAIN" forever in my mind. You told your friends you were going home. That home was your HEAVENLY HOME with your HEAVENLY FATHER. I was only a steward for your earthly care for a short time. Maybe one of these days I will hear these words "HEY MOM I'M HOME" as you would say each evening when you got home. Your Mother loves and misses you very much. Your always in my thoughts and prayers. As I always told you each morning BE CAREFUL, HAVE A GOOD DAY AND I LOVE YOU and continue to do so each morning as I look at your pictures in the hallway. It now includes a P.S. GOD PLEASE TAKE CARE OF MY BABY, GIVE HIM A BIG HUG FOR ME AND TELL HIM I LOVE AND MISS HIM.
Your loving Mother ALWAYS

Happy Birthday buddy! We got about 5 inches of snow yesterday so the kids and I have been out sledding(I'm finding out I don't fit in the sled to well). With today being your birthday and being able to sled, brings back all the good memories of Grandma and Grandad's hill when you were younger. We just wanted to wish you a happy birthday. Uncle Ward, Aunt Amy,Lauren,Emily and Cole.
Brandon as time passes I don't know what to say or can imagine the pain and suffering of your parents and your best bud Landon. I know the loss I suffer. Look down upon your family and give them the strength to continue their daily lives while not forgetting the best of Brandon.I will do my best here and I will not ever forget Brandon as a nephew and as a friend. I will be back to drop a note whenever I feel I need to. With all our love and cherished memories Uncle Ward,Aunt Amy, Lauren,Emily and Cole

My prayers and condolences are with you, Brandon will always be in our hearts.
"Life is but a stopping place, a pause in whats to be, a resting place along the road to Sweet Eternity."
May God be with all the Family and many Friends. Your in my thoughts and prayers.
We will always love you! You will be missed but we know through faith that we will get to be together again someday in heaven.
I'm sure you saw and heard your big brothers tribute today! You must have been bragging to all the other angels about how awesome he is. What a trooper you have for a mom. She always thinks of everyone else but it was our turn to try and be there for her. How she loved you! And your dad, a man of few words but none the less he could embarrass a peacock when it came to the pride he had for his boys!
Thanks for the memories that we got to share with you. Save a spot for us in heaven cause we plan to join you some day!
Love and Memories,
Uncle Paul, Aunt Hallie, Kylen and Dalton

Brandon you will always be my best friend. With you around me I thought there was nothing that we could not conquer. I had a three hundred and sixty degree view of the world and now it is only one hundred and eighty. I like to think I helped lead the way on earth so now you lead my way and I will follow you.
You used to say your name means everything and it does and the way you worked and lived you made the Miner name something for me to live up to make me as proud up there as you have down here and holmes give me key to your new home like I gave you one to mine
LOVE YOU ALWAYS
YOUR BIG BROTHER
P.S. LIKE WE ALWAYS HAVE SAID BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER.
