Sam, Jr. and Donna and your family, you are truly in my most sincere thoughts and prayers. You have experienced more than your share of loss and family passing. I trust you find the needed strength, peace and comfort in your faith ion the Lord Jesus Christ to sustain your days ahead. Please know that we care and are available to help you in any way needed.
He was definitely a one of a kind, a brilliant minded individual who’s vast knowledge of war, history both foreign and local, and just life itself fascinated me from the times him and I spent out in my brothers shed of dread talking about WW2 and listening to behemoth when I was just a youngan, to just a few days shy of his untimely passing he still managed to teach me so much. Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had in my life, some of best times I’ve ever had in my life were with Bubba, just simple things like staying up all night on messenger talking about John Wilkes Booths’ pogo-stick or going out and getting tacos at various Mexican restaurants and ripping out of parking lots in that Mustang of his, I’m gonna miss our conversations and our little adventures but I’ll cherish the memory’s for as long as I live. He truly cared for everyone in his life, a thoughtful, big hearted bear of man and that’s how I’ll always remember him.
Sam, Donna and Bill,
We have been friends a long time and have prayed and seen each other through many losses. Brandon will forever be in our heart. I think back to days back when Brandon and Bill were in our youth group. We always felt a connection and a love for them. We are praying for peace that only the Lord can give you. Brandon always had that big smile and was a special young man. If you need anything please let us know.
So sorry to hear of your loss. You’re in our prayers.
