The passing of a young man is such a tragedy. A young man as special as Brayden is particularly difficult. Find strength in your memories. Find peace in prayers.💕

To the Family of Brayden: So sorry to read about the passing of Brayden. May he Rest In Peace.

I never met Brayden and did not know who he was until my roommate came home from the track on Saturday very distraught saying that a young man had had an accident. He was very upset to discover that the young man had passed, but he was comforted by knowing that Brayden was been doing exactly what he LOVED doing...riding his quad, enjoying time with his Dad and his buddies and loving life. There is nothing more we could hope for when Jesus calls us. Those of us left behind are the ones who, alas, have to suffer the most. But Brayden is happy and free. Prayers to his family in this trying time.

With deepest sympathy I encourage the family to take to heart the true hope of a resurrection that the Bible teaches.(Acts 24:15) When the earth is restored to a paradise, the wicked will be no more. (Psalm 37:9-11; Isaiah 35:1-10) Pain, death and sorrow will be things of the past. Revelation 21:1-4 These scriptures help me to cope, I hope they touch your heart as well jw.org

I am truly sorry about your loss. He was an amazing best friend. He will forever have apart of my heart. My prayers are with all of you.
