Brandon will also be missed by his many friends in Gardner, KS and Independence, MO.

We will miss his smile, his sparkling blue eyes and most of all his hugs. The boy could hug like nobody’s business. Like all of us he had his faults and issues but we loved and still love him nonetheless. He was ours and will live on in...
