    Jessica, words can not express how my heart aches for you and Clay. The few times I was around Brandon, he always had me laughing about something or blushing over some joke he played on me. The two of you were awesome together. Please know that you and Clay are in my prayers. Feel the love and prayers coming your way. I love you Jessica.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Brandon was a wonderful person. He was kind and thoughtful. I can still remember him in junior high with the baggy jeans and blonde hair. He was always a joy to be around. Your family is in my prayers.

    Our prayers go out to you and your family for the loss of Brandon.
    I will always remember him coming to my house and jumping over my couch in one leap when he tried to pet "buddy" the dog.

    Love the Kelloggs

    No words can express how sorry I am for your loss. Brandon was always such an energetic and funny person. Even though I haven't seen Brandon since I was 15 years old, I can still remember all the obnoxiously wonderful times we had at Central Jr. High. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Brandon's loved ones.

    I wish to express my deepest sympathy to Jessica and her family during this time. I worked with Sgt. Brandon George when I was a young Marine. I learned a lot from him as well as the other senior Marines on how to be a good leader. He was funny, outgoing and very knowledgeable. He will be missed but never forgotten. Jessica, keep your head up because thats what he would want you to do. I will be praying for you and your family to find peace and understanding.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to Jessica, Clayton, and the entire family. I served with Sgt. Brandon George, and got to know him fairly well. He was an outsanding Marine, and above all a great man. He was always a pleasure to be around, with his sense of humor and constantly full of energy and life. Anytime he was needed, he was there and willing to do anything for a friend in need. Jessica, I apologize I couldn't make the services and encourage you to stay strong, you are a strong person and that's what Brandon would want from you for the kids. He will never be forgotten, RIP brother...Semper Fi

    Randy & family,

    We are so saddened to learn of Brandon's death. When he was here to install our new furnace, he spoke of the close relationship he had with you. I will never forget that talk with him. Our hearts ache for you and we will keep your family in our prayers.

    Norm & Joy Hayward Belleville IL 62221

    I first met Brandon and his father while working at former Wings Over Belleville. Brandon was a very outgoing person who from what I remember enjoyed life, friends, and cars. I was very saddened to learn of his death and even more heartbroken to hear that he left behind a wife and young son. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and especially his wife Jessica and his son Clayton.

    Thank you Brandon for serving and protecting our country

    May you rest in peace!

    The Greenlee family wanted to express to the family how sorry we are for your loss. There are never the right words to express the deep sadness we know you have to endure. Brandon loved his family above all else. He will be sadly missed, but his gestures of caring, kindness, and strength will be part of your spirit now as you go forward in your life. Brandon never knew a stranger. He spoke to anyone that crossed his way. He truly made you feel that you were important enough to stop and spend some time with. He was one huge bundle of energy. I always said I could keep going forever on just the energy he had in his little finger. He made us laugh and we were blessed to be granted the pleasure of knowing him. He has enriched our lives. God must have needed a burst of energy in heaven so he tapped Brandon on the shoulder and took him home. He is now part of the light that will guide us all home.

    With our sincerest sympathy,
    Gary, Annette, Ryan, Daniel & Kyle

    I had the pleasure of serving with Brandon. He was a great Marine and an even better human being. Brandon always went out of his way to make sure anyone who needed help was taken care of. He was never down or in a bad mood. He was always a positive person. The world has trueley lost a great soul and a great man. He now stands gaurd at the pearly gates. Semper Fi Brandon.
