    Ben and Lynn,
    Wow just yesterday your name and face popped into my mind. I often wonder how you all are, but this time I just thought that I should try to find you on facebook. I found Brandon and found this happened. Brandon was such a sweet little boy. I haven’t seen him since he was little. And a little kid that couldn’t say Little he said yittle.! Oh my goodness I am thinking of you all and praying for you all. Peace to all of your broken hearts. I miss you!

    Ben and Lynn, I was indeed sorrowful when I heard the news about Brandon, and having experiencing the loss of our daughter and realizing there are no words in life other than the Words of God that can bring comfort or make sense of something so heart breaking. I want to express my deepest sympathies toward both of you, and let you know our church in Easley will continue to keep you in our prayers so that your hearts will be lifted toward His throne. Thanks for your friendship I consider it invaluable, hope to see both of you someday soon and be able to encourage more, God Bless
