Brady, one of my most fond memories of you took place summer of 2018. We were in the same link crew group, and had to spend the day together. What made it so memorable was you chugging a 2 liter bottle of diet pepsi in under 5 minutes, and having an entire pizza to yourself for lunch. You brought so much joy to everyone around you. Hanging out with you at Chris’s house after school was something I always looked forward to. You were always so energetic, honest, and kind. I wish we could’ve gotten more time together. Love you always, miss you forever.

A very special young man, who I will always remember for his drive and positive and friendly way. Always made my day chatting with him. I was very proud of him for joining the service . The whole neighborhood is very sad to loose a special young man like Brayden. I miss seeing him walking Lola down the street. I will think of him and smile ,cause I know he is in Heaven looking down. My deepest sympathies' to the family .

Brady, thank you for being my brother I never had for the amount of time we did. Thank you for the endless efforts you put into our friendship and being you and accepting who I really was and loving that version of me. I wish we could’ve had more time together, I miss you and I didn’t realize how fast life can change in a blink of an eye. It’s been hard to believe and accept this is real, I couldn’t get the words out of my mouth to express how I feel. I’m sorry for your family and others who’ve gotten to know you as the most caring, loving, genuine soul you were. I will always keep our memories with me. I was so proud to see the boy I met transform into the young man you’d become. I was happy with your random calls and check ups. I was happy you got to experience the independence you did, the new friendships you built and the funny situations you got yourself in. I was happy for you, I always told you to be safe and that I loved you. I wish I could’ve said it more. But I hoped that you knew. Rest easy B🌹

My sincerest condolences, I had the pleasure of meeting Brayden in Fresno, Ca., when you would bring him along for the multi level marketing meetings. He was a sweet, well mannered, intelligent boy. Heaven has gained a beautiful Angel. Praying for your family. Peace be with you.

I was Brayden’s Counselor at Bullard. He was such a bright light on campus. He always had a smile and a funny story to tell me when I saw him. He came in often to see me and chat & it always brightened my day. 😊

There is no pain more reaching and deeper than losing a son. My heart and prayers go out to you at this most difficult time.

I'm so glad I got to share so many beautiful moments with you! You helped me face so many problems when I was running away from them. You were there for me during my darkest times and picked me up when I would fall. I treasure all of the countless memories and experiences we've created with each other and will hold them close to me forever. I'm always going to miss your calls at 3am, your overpowering bear hugs, and your contagious laugh. The amount of love and happiness you gave to this world is unfathomable. I love you so much Brayden, and I will always remember you as my brother.
