  1. We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great grandfather. Much love and prayers to you all and may God wrap His loving arms around you and provide comfort and solace.❤️❤️🙏🙏

  2. I have so many happy memories with your family. Mr. Brandhorst always made me smile and always made me feel welcome and part of the family. He truly made a difference in my life. I am deeply sorry to hear of his passing. The world is a sadder place for sure today. I send so many prayers to his beautiful family today.

  3. I’m real sorry to all of my family that was hit as hard as I was by Great-Grandpa’s death. I was only able to see him once before he passed and that was the day the Cardinals won a game. When we told him he seemed happy about it. Loved him so much. 🫶🏼
