    My deepest condolences to Brandon’s family. Although I did not know him, I would like to share some words of comfort. It is so sad to see such a young, happy and life filled man be taken by death. truly we could say death is our greatest enemy, but not for long. God promises that “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing” (Corinthians 15:26) also he give us a beautiful hope that we will once again see, hug and be with our loved ones in a peaceful earth. (John 5:28&29) I hope these promises will be of comfort and give provide hope towards the future. I will include you in my prayers.

    Brandon always greeted us at Main Site with a smile and a “how’s it going”.He always had time to check on what we needed and was always “there”. I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of his passing. His family are in both James’ and my thoughts and prayers.
