My thoughts and prayers go out to the Taylor and Brown families. May God show his love to each of you in mighty ways during this time. I always loved seeing Landen at Wightman and around town. He always had a hug, smile, and a way of making you laugh as he just “told it like it was” about whatever was going on at the time. I know he will be missed by so many! I will be praying for you all.

Britt, There are no words that can explain the sorrow and pain Jordyn and I feel for your loss of Landen.
A child is always with us. First in their lifetime, then forever in our memory beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed and very dear.

To Landen's Family,
On behalf of the Engineering Dept. at Pleasurecraft Engines we were extremely saddened to hear of Landen's passing. He was a great co-worker and even better friend and he will be sorely missed. It may not seem so today, but Matthew 5 verse 4 promises: "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted".
You are in our prayers.
From: Jon, Brad, Brian, Carver, David, Jerry, Hugh, and Mike.
