    Hi Kenny

    Obviously there are no words that can help alleviate the pain and sorrow your family and you are going through at this time. Hopefully the knowledge that there are people thinking about you and your family now and always will somehow help through this tragedy.

    Your hockey pal

    I had the pleasure of meeting Brandon at Jim and Jenny’s wedding; it was obvious he was a terrific young person. Kim, Kayla and all the family – I pray the love and support of so many who deeply care will help hold you until you’re strong enough to stand on your own again. Brandon will never be truly taken from you, only temporarily parted.
