    You brought a smile to my face every time I saw you. It didn’t matter how tired or upset I was. You have been the closest thing to a younger brother I have ever had. I will miss you every day until we meet again. I love you.

    When I think of Brandon I think of a bright smile, a good sense of humor and a hard worker. There are no words that can fully express the deep sympathy that I feel for his family, and his friends. I hope God will keep your in his arms and give you strength in this time. I know that Brandon will be missed, but he will not be forgotten. I’m glad that I had a chance to know such a great man.

    To my dear, soon-to-be son-in-law. You had such a short time to grace us with your vibrant and endearing personality and I only barely knew you. You will be greatly missed. Your bright spirit will shine for many years to come within the hearts of those you knew and loved as we remember and celebrate your life and mourn your passing. My prayers are with you, your family, and my dearest daughter in this tragic time of loss.

    Your spirit is so loud, you are still with us, and always will be! You were such a wonderful friend to my very best friends; the White’s. They are missing you more than ever! You were a great friend and officer! I will miss leaving the neighborhood and you waving hello! Your smile will stand in my memory forever. Prayers are with the family and friends.

    I could live my whole life without another 3am phone call like I received this morning. It is just devastating news that such a vibrant and caring young man was taken from this world so early in life.
    Brandon, we’ve been neighbors for as long as I can remember. Your family, in a lot of ways, is family to me also. I will always remember the way your presence lit up a room. You were an awesome son, brother, and uncle and you would have been a fantastic father.
    Dubose family – We are here for you all, just as you all have always been here for us. We love you and will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

    We are so sad that we have lost such a rare, wonderful young man, soon to be my brother in law. He would have rocked this world as a husband to my sister, Shannon, and a great addition to our family. He will always live in our hearts. Watch over us, Brandon. We will miss you till we meet again.

    Our Prayers go out the Dubose family with their lost.
    Brandon was a fine young man and had spent time at our house
    through High School and the kids had a great time playing poker.
    He was the class president of the graduating class of 2006.
    You will be missed dearly my friend. God has a plan and I know
    He loves you and is caring for you now.
