Brandon could spin a story as tall as the Empire State or tell you everything he was thinking with just one look. He could be funny, austere, loving, talented, charming, informative or take flights of fancy. He wasn't perfect, but he wasn't imperfect, he was family. He affected everyone differently and that is how we will remember and love him. He will be greatly missed by family and friends alike.
