    I'm so sorry to hear that Brandon has left this earth. I only got to visit with him a couple of times. He seemed like such a good big hearted soul. When he was playing with Bentley it was a joy to watch. My heart goes out to those he loved. Kevin and Ditas, I know your hearts must be broken, I pray for peace in your lives. May you cherish the good memories that you carry of him. May he rest in peace.

    Brandon was a student of mine when he was in third grade.  I remember him fondly as a kind and friendly boy with a happy smile who enjoyed school.  My sincerest sympathy to his family and friends.

    No human words said can ever ease the pain of losing a loved one, especially when they are so young.  Our prayer is that the Holy Spirit will surround you and comfort you, that the Lord Jesus will give peace that passes all understanding and you are able to lean on the Father and utter "ABBA Father" as He strengthens you each day.   Your family is in our prayers and our virtual arms are around you!

    Sorry to hear of Brandon's passing, God has a new eternal assignment for him in heaven.                                                                       I remember how much Jessie enjoyed taking care of Brandon and his brother when they were little.

    God is holding you and your family in His arms during this difficult time.                                                                                                       Gail Devereaux

    Kevin and Ditas,

    This pain you are baring no parent ever wants to know.  There is nothing I can say to lift this off your heart.  I wish there were.  Just know we are praying for strength to get up and breathe every day, put one foot in front of the other and walk when you would rather feel anything else.

    While we can't take your pain but we can come and uphold you with our prayers.  So know God and prayers are holding you up when you don't have the strength.

    Father this day hold the Sturtz family in your hands, bind their broken hearts, and help them carry on when it feels too hard. Let your love help them heal in time.  Let grace find its home in their hearts.  Let healing find its way into this family.  Most of all Lord, carry them through this time of pain. Amen

    love and prayers,

    Greg and Patt
