My dear grandson, as today passes by, my prays are with you and your mother and father. I have watched you grow up from birth and certainly remember all the GOOD TIMES along with a few bad, but you seemed to have come around and life just gave out of your beautiful soul so quickly. I did not expect you to leave before me!...too many of our family are leaving for a better place in heaven so soon.....Brandon may you gather with them, as we will miss all of you so much and will be joining you in the future!
Your loving grandmother, Nana

My young friend there are no amount of words that can truly express how sad it is to know you are no longer here. So many times we talked about life (good and bad). We shared many nights working at EST where you had my back and I had yours. I remember a conversation you and I had regarding tattoos (since we both loved them). I showed you a picture of a Phoenix rising from the ashes and told you that's how I felt with life's trials and tribulations because I always seemed to rise back up no matter how many times I was knocked down. You told me that day "that would be a great tattoo for you because you are a strong woman who keeps getting up and I respect that". My fellow Phoenix you have risen one last time to a much higher place and we will meet again, my friend. Rest in peace and know you touch so many people's lives that you didn't realize you did. Rise high dear friend!!!!!

Brandon you will always be in my thoughts... it's a tragedy to lose yet another young soul so unexpectedly. Your love for animals was always something that the two of us had in common. I remember when Johnny and I lived with your Dad and Erik (and you and KK on the weekends if I remember correctly) how good you were with our dog Maximus... you definitely had a gift and talent working with animals. You were a REALLY good hot-walker at Eagle Point, you were really good with the horses and I remember how much you enjoyed working on the farm. It goes to show that you were a kind and good hearted soul. I know you struggled with a lot of the same issues that I struggle with... and we also had that in common. I hope that you are truly at peace now... in Heaven with the other guardian Angels who are also missed and thought of so often. Oh and also remember how much the barn cats loved you! I think you and Erik ended up adopting one of the EPF barn cats because it had seizures (?) or something that made it too dangerous to be a barn kitty. Precious! I love you very much, Brandon. I'll always think of y'all as family, and you will be missed so so so much. Rest easy, brother. Til we meet again. ✌😊💛😚🐱🐈🐺🐎🐕🐶🐩🏇🎵🎶🤧😢😇😻😿💜❤💙💞💚
