Not sure what to say?

It was both an honor to know him and to be related to him. I will long remember him.

I see him still, striding toward eternity, always taking the time to bend down and help someone up and insisting that this neighbor had unique, inimitable dignity that warranted God's great love. Uncannily handsome and tender yet wry, he would make me wince and wonder if I might ever do enough for humanity.

Thanks for your friendship, will miss our chats in the pro shop.

Brendon was a one of a kind individual, there were no clones. Too many adjectives to describe Brendon, but the one that stands out in my mind was caring, caring for those who had less than he had. At the same time he was a tough business man, we never could reach terms on the value of a walking golf cart he didn't use anymore even though the negotiations continued over a four year period.

Brendon was a walking history museum. I enjoyed the many history lessons during our rounds of golf. He will be missed by all of his his golfing buddies at Tekoa CC. Rest In Peace my friend.

Our condolences to the family. May God fulfill his promise of binding up the brokenhearted. Isa 61:1

I would like to express my sympathy to the family for this great loss. May the God who comforts those that mourn sustain you during this difficult time. Isaiah 61:1,2
