Dave, Suzette, Michael and Adam WorbyI will never forget the summer of 2008 when I was Brandon's soccer coach and he was the recipient of a hard tackle at a tournament in St. Catherines. Brandon was so respected and loved by his teammates that all 60lbs of 12 year old Riley Brown came up to "protect" Brandon from this egregious foul. The only red card ever received by a 1996 born soccer player at Oakridge in my time as coach. Brandon being two times the size of Riley required no protection but the event only polarizes my many memories of Brandon as loved by all. I hope you can find a little peace that these wonderful memories will live forever in all of his friend and their parents.
Mark, Charlotte, Adam, Brett Shawn,Barb,Ryan and all of your extended family: We are thinking of you all. Brandon would often come over to visit as the kids were growing up. Our heartfelt condolences. The McCullough family.

I cannot say one single word that will make any difference to your loss but please add me to the long list of friends who care deeply for you.
