He treated animals with human compassion, and he loved his two favorite cats Aurora and Orion and their two new kittens. He loved all living entities equally. He always shared kind words, compassionate declarations and was philanthropic toward people and movements that he encountered, which needed his help. Branden loved his friends, and some of his most wonderful memories came from their shared love of soccer.Branden was at his essence both love and light.
