    It’s always too soon when you lose someone you love. Brandon had a wonderful life as long as he was on earth–both Larry and Michelle saw to that. May God always be with you in this time of sorrow. Brandon will always be with you, in the memories you have. Love so much

    Larry & Michele,
    So sorry to hear of loss of your son. My words cannot explain what you must be going thru or experiencing. The great news is Brandon is completely at peace with the Lord. I will keep you and your family in my prayers and thoughts.

    Larry, I don’t know if your remember me, but I worked as a tech out of the Greenville, SC office when we were Lanier, which is now M*Modal.

    God Bless,
    Patrick Rupp

    We don’t always recognize the teachers in our lives until they leave us.
    Brendon certainly led by example in all his endeavors.
    Blessings

    There seem to be no words to express to you how sorry I am on the loss of Brendon. He was an amazing young man and I feel blessed that I was able to get to know him and that very special sense of humor that he shared with us all! I had hoped to be there today but it is not to be. Please know that your whole family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    The service for Brendon was beautiful today. Hearing about his life makes me want to be a better person. I know his love and his life will go on to bless you and everyone he knew. Blessings will come to you as you celebrate his new life without earthly limitations and as you grieve his absence in the body from you now.

    Such a great kid and gone way to soon. Prayers to MIchele and Larry and the boys, they are such great parents and Brendon was kept involved in a very active life thanks to them. He is greatly missed!

    Brendon was a spirit on Earth and continues to be a spirit in our minds and hearts that lives! The gift of loving and acceptance (of all) continues to bless his young cousins and this Aunt and Uncle, who love him dearly and will continue to keep his eternal light shining in all of us!
    Blessings, hugs, and love to my big Sister (and her family)! She has found her path and continues to teach us all strength (even through darkest days)! Michele, you birthed an amazing being…I am eternally grateful!
