Brantley, although our paths crossed only briefly; it was just long enough to see that you were a special young man. Your time on this Earth was too short; and your ambitions, hopes and dreams will never be realized. Be assured though that you will not be forgotten. May you rest in peace, now and forever. May God comfort your friends and family now, and sweet memories someday fill the void.
