Memorial service for Brandon Tyler

Kim and I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for all the love, support, phone calls, texts, food, flowers, and words of condolences that you’ve all been sending to us. It means more then you’ll ever truly know. We are still coming to terms with the loss of our beautiful son, Brandon. We are in the thick of the healing process, please bare with our little family as we navigate what has left us undeniably broken. Early afternoon on Thanksgiving we received a gut wrenching phone call that our son did not make it. Unknowingly to us, he had pneumonia and pancreatitis that went untreated for too long and ultimately took his life. If you’ve found yourself asking “how can we help?” “what can we do for you?” We’ve come together as a family and decided the best way to help is this GoFundMe page. Brandon left us very sudden and unexpectedly. Our hearts, our souls, and our minds were not prepared for this loss. This GoFundMe page will be used for the cost of Brandon’s funeral expenses, travel expenses, cremation, and final burial placement. (We will be having a family and friends gathering for him, hopefully soon. We will post those details once they become available to us). Brandon was a loving and supportive Son, Brother, Nephew, Grandson, Uncle and an unconditional friend. He accepted everyone for who they are and always welcomed those with a beautiful smile and a warm embrace. He would not want us to be sad for him. He would want us to dry our tears, give thanks for what time we had together, and share the love all around us, as he did daily. We want to thank you in advance for your help and kindness during this difficult time. Brandon is free, Brandon is at peace, Brandon will be forever missed and loved.
