My step nephew Brant was a special young man and a gifted musician. Over the years my family and I have gotten to spend knowing Brant, we came to appreciate his intelligence, talent, and his kind nature. We will miss Brant. I will especially miss his infectious smile. We grieve for Lori and Ashley’s loss. We are praying God’s “peace that passes understanding” to sustain them through this difficult time and into the future. We loved Brant and find comfort in knowing he is now with his Heavenly Father.

My heart is in absolute shambles. Brant was my first love we dated for 6 years. He was my first of so many things. First concerts, first real boyfriend, first time moving into my own apartment. 23 was too soon and there is so many things I could say but I am at a loss of world.

I remember when I first met Brant, I was so excited to have another cousin. I remember him, my brother, and Matthew wrestling in the backyard of Nana’s house. I’m sorry I didn’t get to see him enough to know him better, but I know him well enough to know he will be missed greatly. I’m praying for the family during this tough time.
