Brandon was a dear, sweet son and he will be greatly missed.  As a child he was happy and playful.  The neighbors called him “ya ya boy”, because ya ya was his name for water.  He would sneak over to the water hose and start squirting the ladies when they tried to take the hose away from him.  I remember one time he soaked my wife and two other ladies before they were able to shut the water off.  As he grew older, he became quieter and more reserved.  However, he still had a very good, but dry, sense of humor.

His favorite food was the chicken finger plate from Zaxby's.  If anyone wasn't sure what he wanted for Christmas, all they had to do was give him a Zaxby's gift card.

He had a very kind and gentle spirit.  The cat would often go into his room for a visit and he would smile, talk to her, and rub her head.  I'm pretty sure he liked the cat more than I do.

We had different traditions through the years that would come and go; but for this past Halloween, he decided that we should start a new tradition and get a Pizza Hut pizza every Halloween.

Brandon was the best son I could have asked for.  I would frequently tell him that he was a fine young man and I was happy he was my son.  I'm so glad now that I did.  I can't put into words how much l loved him and will miss having him in my life.  I thank God for the time I had with him and also for my precious daughter who is still in my life.

    Please know that the Kellogg and Rector family down here in Louisiana are thinking about all of you up in Hendersonville with very heavy hearts during this tough time. So glad that your Mom, Dad, and “precious daughter” are there with you and you with them. Love to all of you!

      Thank you Cathy. I remember and miss all of the good times we had growing up. I was telling mom the other day how much I enjoyed Christmas Eve at Granny’s house with all of the family.

    May God surround you and your family in His Peace at this time Ted. Prayers are going up for all of you, and I will continue to pray for you in the months ahead. I never had the opportunity to meet Brandon, but sure wish I could have.
    Always remember the good times and memories you and Brandon shared together, and KNOW that God is with you and will help you get through this. I will light a candle and will be singing Happy Birthday to Brandon on January 22.
    Sending lots of love to all of you!

      Hi Tina. Thank you so much. I’m glad I had all of you as my cousins. We had such good times as kids down at Granny’s house. I think I will have to get a cupcake and also light a candle for Brandon. Great idea.

    Words cannot express the pain of losing our Brandon. I never had a chance to really know him, but kept up with him thru his Grandparents, and could not have loved him more. He will always live in our hearts. I pray the comfort and love of our Lord will surround you Ted, Melissa and Grandparents. Love to you all,

    A loss at this age is so hard to understand and the pain you feel is really hard to bear.
    May God bless you and comfort you and family.
    Dick & I will be praying for you all

    Ted, through your faith in Christ Jesus our Savior will GOD comfort your heart. He will hold you up when you don’t have the strength. Only through him are all things are possible. We are weak but HE is strong. I love you. GOD loves you.

    Proverbs 3:5
    Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    Joshua 1:9
    Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

    Romans 8:28
    And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

    II Corinthians 12:8-10
    8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
    9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
    10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

    Revelation 21:4
    And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
