    Brandon will be missed. Another promising young Caymanian life has been snuffed out. XXXXX What a waste, it could have been two deaths. Please slow down, each of us including myself. I also tend to speed at times.   Let's have a march to save our kids. We need our young men.

    To : Brandon,

    I was blessed to have you as my nephew , You was a well respectful and well mannered gentleman who made me proud to call you my nephew .The eighteen years you spent in my life was the most wonderful years of my life, but the day i got the news that you passed will go down as my worst day. You were my right hand man when it came to anything to do with the computer or TV as you were so intelligent. May your beautiful soul rest in peace and thanks for being my nephew,

     

    Your broken hearted Uncle.

    Very sad loss for such a young man, I too ride a motorcycle. I noticed during my last visit to Cayman how many young drivers seemed to be riding on my bumper (very close) and in such a hurry to get where ever it was they were going on such a small island.

    Another sad crash from speeding and reckless driving.  All too common.

    Caymanian driver.  Overtaking many cars.  Running head on into an oncoming car.  Many put in danger of dying.  One taken.  Whose next?

    Sad to see his life end. But he was being an idiot by driving dangerously on a motorbike…. You only fall off once

      why don't you keep your negative comments to yourself and instead try to show some sympathy to the familes and friends of this well liked young man, who ever you are if this was your son would you have liked someone to post the comments that  you posted as your grieving the lost of your child. In the future try to think before you type. You act as if you will never be in the situation like the grieving friends and families of this fine, young man.

    speed kills, why do the youth need to speed on a tiny island.

    Graduated dirving license? Culture needs to change?

    Traffic enforcement?

    “I’ll lend you for a little time a child of mine,” He said.
    “For you to love the while he lives and mourn when he is dead,
    “It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three.
    “But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
    “He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, but should his stay be brief,
    “You’ll have his lovely memories, as solace for your grief,
    “I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,
    “But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.
    “I’ve looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true,
    “And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes I have selected you.
    “Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
    “Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again?
    I fancied that I heard them say: Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
    “For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we’ll run.
    We’ll shelter him with tenderness: we’ll love him while we may,
    And for happiness we’ve known forever grateful stay.
    “But should the angels call for him much sooner than we’d planned.
    “We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.”

    Life is short and in many cases, too short.  Although we hope for it, sometimes 2nd chances are not given.  A fine young man gone too soon.  Well liked and loved, talented and intelligent… May he rest in peace

    You were a special person with so much potential for a bright future. My family was blessed to have had you in our lives and I'm happy to know that you touched so many with your kind, fun and positive attitude. It hurts me to know that I'm in Europe to receive this sad news. My prayers and thoughts are with aunt Gracie, your mom,family & friends.

    Now a days it seem so hard to hold on to our young men. My heart bleeds for him especially his parents.  Why this should happen we  never know. But Ican assure you God is Good, and I pray his strenght and powers sustain and keep his mom, dad and all his loved ones.  May you all find comfort in the the God we serve.
