My deepest condolences for the tragic loss of your Son.I can't even imagine the pain you are feeling.
There is a wonderful hope given in the bible at Jo 5:28,29 where God will remember our dead loved ones and will bring them back to life on earth with the prospect of living forever in Paradise as God originally purposed for mankind. Ps 37:11,29.
Imagine the day when there are no more tears of sorrow and death and pain are gone forever. Rev 21:3,4.
May you find comfort in these promises.

Our hearts break over the loss of our sweet Brandon. He will live forever in our hearts. God gained an angel when he took Brandon home. I know he is having a blast with his Uncle Amp in heaven.
