Brandon was always such a happy guy. I can not say that I recall seeing him without a smile on his face especially when he was doing anything that pertained to his passion, such as Racing and him being a family man
May the roads rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall softly upon your fields,
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand. This has really opened my eyes about never knowing when you'll never seeing someone you love cuz you'll never know when it's their time to go, to my family I love you all!!
