My sympathy for you and yours at this desvastating loss to your family. I was privileged to teach Brandon last summer in driver education and enjoyed him so much. He was a wonderful young man and will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers go with you. I will keep Austin in my prayers, also, as he faces his long road to recovery.

Our deepest sympathy to the Buffington family. Jim is a bus driver at school and I was a cook in food service. Brandon was just a nice young man, so quiet and liked by everyone. We were so glad he was good friends with our nephew Michael Aspenson. They were very much alike in manner. If there is anything we can do for you, just ask. God bless all of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with your whole Family. Knowing when I walked in town I would see Brandon playing ball with Lucas or he and Austin riding bike. Now I will look at those places and not see Brandon''s face. I know this will never be easy for any of you, but know that the Eastman community is very close and will give your family support in any way you may need. The community has been heart broke with the loss of both Brandon and Skyler, please take care. I''m looking forward to seeing Maya in my Grandduaghter''s (Hayven) Pre K class this fall. I love seeing Maya out enjoying the summer weather. You are a Great and Caring Family!! Darlene

I only knew Brandon for a couple of years, but those years were great. When he was a freshman on the football team and I was a senior, I would always line up on him during practice, because he was smaller and I liked to play around with him. I would try to run him over and joke around when I blocked him. Everytime I knocked him over, he would always get back up. Later in the season, he got smart with my games and he reversed them on me, and he made me look like a fool. I like to say that I tried to teach him everything I knew, because I was his size when I started football as a freshman. I really miss him and I will keep him, Austin and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
