    I remember when we use to play around the neighborhood and ride bikes and go hang out with Mark riding our bikes in the ditch, in the rain, going down to his house and hang out and talk about girls. Miss them days. I came and seen you in hospital when you got hurt, I even signed your book that was there. I have missed you and wondered how we would have done together growing up, probably trouble because we always did. But I’m glad you are in a better place now. We are all going to miss you buddy. Go after them girl’s now say hi to Mark for me. I will see you up there when I come. Hope you will be ready Buddy. Until next time we meet. Love Trent Long

    Brandon brought a lot of joy to myself and the staff at ERDAC. He had a great sense of humor. He also had a wonderful relationship with the staff within the Rags Production Work Area, especially Rebecca and Nanci. I remember that we discussed at his intake meeting, whether the Center was an appropriate placement for Brandon, or not, but seeing him frequently almost jump out of his chair because he was laughing so hard; I believe Brandon would’ve said it was the right decision. I’m sorry I will not be able to make his service, but my thoughts are with you!

    To the family of Brandon,, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

    Sandy & family,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy on the passing of Brandon. I knew him the last half of his life. He laughed at certain phrases & listened as we talked to him. At times, he laughed out loud for no apparent reason. I had met some of his family members when they visited…especially his mom, auntie Susie, & grandparents.
    May Brandon Rest In Peace.
    Kathy
