Only a mother could imagine the sorrow a loss like this would bring, but now as Brandon's mother, really know the true effect of it, words can not express the sorrow I know you have at this moment and many more to come. You and your family have my deepest sympathy. May God Bless and Keep You

It has been one month ago since you went home with the Lord and in my heart it still hurt not to see your face or to hear your voice. I know that you are in the presence of The All Mighty Himself and that you are wearing a crown made just for you. I will alway love you no matter how much my heart pains. I thank you for the time that I had with you and will always remember your smiling face....Love always and forever.....Uncle John

There are no words to say, no deeds to do, just prayers to God for taking care of you (him). Now, we have to pray for all the loss and emptiness to share, which at times we think is more than we can bare. Just remember all the wondrous hugs and smiles we had along the way, they will forever be more to us each day. He is waiting for you, so for now, live each day fully til then, awaiting thos wonderous hugs and smiles again!
Our Love & Prayers,
Nick & Rubyann Protos

I'm sorry to read about Brandon's death. Losing a loved one at such a young age has to be difficult to endure. However, you can find comfort in knowing that God cares for you and he can heal your broken hearts. - Ps. 147:3; 1 Pet. 5:7.

Jackie, and family, I know that there are no words that can really help to ease the loss you are feeling right now, just know that you are very close in my thoughts and my prayers. We may not understand why things happen the way that they do, but we are to "trust in the LORD with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding" (Proverb 3:5).

Only GOD can heal the hurt you all feel at this time, words will never fill the void that your heart holds for him, but overtime GOD will comfort you through HIS Holy Spirit, and give you peace. Know that GOD makes no mistakes in HIS doings, HE is the giver of life, as well as the taker of life, and know that BJ is now resting in the arms of our savior JESUS CHRIST. To be absent from the body, is to be present with the LORD. May GOD give each of strength to endure and continue on going as you transition thru life without your loved one. Prayers upon each of your heads, and remember GOD loves him and you as well. ~Makita Walker & Family~

There's little we can do or say right now. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow.

33 Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees,
that I may follow it to the end.[a]
34 Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law
and obey it with all my heart.
35 Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word.[b]
38 Fulfill your promise to your servant,
so that you may be feared.
39 Take away the disgrace I dread,
for your laws are good.
40 How I long for your precepts!
In your righteousness preserve my life.

Psalm 119:33-40

Crystal & family, I am praying for your strength during your time of loss. Brandon was a sweet young man. I was his teachers aide 1st & 2nd grade and I saw him when he first started at meadowdale. He had grown into a handsome young man. Cherish your memories as I will cherish mine. It always hurts more to bury your child, as ive experienced myself, but know that God is able & when u cant find the strength within yourself to get through another day, He will carry u. God bless R.I.H Brandon

I just got the news today and I can't believe what I heard. I am in tears. It hurts to know that its true. I will miss seeing you at the corner store and walking around the neighborhood. I will miss your smile. You was a nice respectful young man and I'm glad that I was fortunate enough to have met you. You will NEVER be forgotten. R.I.H. BJ.

Darling, I can't believe that you are gone. You are being buried on your birthday and this year you will be spending it with our Angels. You are my baby and I will love and miss you for the rest of my life.

My deepest, heart-felt sympathy in the loss of your beloved grandson and family member. His passing is so very tragic, but he was called "Home" to do God's work from the other side. He will be missed and always loved and remembered by his beautiful smile. My deepest sympathy to my special friend and BJ's grandmother, Jackie Shells. She cares from the core of her being and is a role model for her children, her grand children, and all members in her family. Much Love, Peace, Prayers and Blessings to the Shells Family.
