I am an Army mother and truly wished I could have attended the services and pay my respects, but unfortunately I was unable to attend. God had instilled the courage, strength, and willingness needed to defend this country in Brandon at such a young age. His dedication to our country, our freedoms, and its people are appreciated and will never be forgotten. Please know there are many heartfelt prayers being said for your family.

May God bless you during this very sad time.
