Jason, Nickole, and Kevin, We at Tyson are in grieving with you over the GREAT loss of your son. We are sure that it is hard to understand why God took Brandon at such a young age, but as with everything, he has a plan for all of us. It is said that time heals all wounds. Brandon was very special. We did not know him, but we were impressed of all the GOOD things we have heard about Brandon. Once again, we are all very saddened over your loss. All of our hearts go out to your family. Love, the Tyson gang.

Dear Jason & Nickole & Kevin, Please accept my condolences and prayers in this great time of suffering and loss in your lives. I pray that you will find strength during these days of mourning in a real understanding of God's compassion and love for you. God tells us in His Word that He is touched by our infirmities - in other words, He hurts when we hurt... His heart aches along with us. He longs to be the solution to life's hardships in our hearts and minds. There are many times that as a chapalin my words seem so inadequate, so please accept my heart-felt sympathies, care, and love for you all at this time. If there is anything that I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to call on me. Again, my thoughts and prayers go out to you, along with many others here in the Tyson family. God's peace and comfort, Dale McCaulley, Tyson Chaplain

My condolences to your family for the loss of Brandon. It is plain to see that Brandon was a loved person. During these times its comforting to reflect on the promises in God's word the Bible. He sees the hurt of the family and friends and sympathizes with them. In the scriptures he promises not only to do away with the pain,tears and sorrow of the loved ones left behind, but to do away with death itself forever( Revelation 21:1-5, John 5:28,29) The God of comfort invites us to draw close to him. If you would like a free brochure that answers questions such as: Why do people die? What happens to them after death? Will we ever see them again?
