I was shocked and saddened to hear of Brandon's passing.  Although he was only employed for a short time here at Metal Finishing Systems in Exton, he was a welcome addition to our workforce.  Brandon was hard-working, dedicated to the task and he will be missed in our small workforce.

I know it was difficult for you to stop by today, I thank you for letting us know and we are all sorry for your loss.

To say you truly knew Brandon, would have been an understatement. Brandon was someone that would leave an impression on anyone he met. He had some stories, and a contagious laugh, and LOVED food! Brandon was a somewhat shy person, but when it came to food, the boy loved to eat!

The amazing thing about siblings is the memories that are made growing up, and boy do I have some great ones of my brother. From running through corn fields with our grandfather to running through Christmas trees with our sister. These memories of Brandon will forever be dear to me. I cannot say that Brandon and I were as close as I dreamed. I got the privelage of spending this past summer with Brandon. I watched my brother smile and laugh again. He swam. For the first time in my life I watched Brandon swim in our lake. Not once, but twice, and he was happy. I watched him sit down with my two children and play a board game start to finish. Brandon got the feel of the innocence and unconditional love from his niece and nephew. Hugs, love, and complete and utter kindness entrapped my brother that summer, and I will never forget it.

Brandon will be missed, but I know his mental state is healed. My thought and prayers are with my dad, mom, and the rest of the family. May time heal us all.
