A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam…And for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world…But then it flies again…And though we wish it could have stayed...We feel lucky to have seen it...

Brodie is so loved, will always be remembered and missed dearly.

I want to say thank you to everyone that has prayed or made a donation for my grandson Brodie. Please continue to pray for his mom and dad as they go through the next few days and months to come. God and the family members in heaven are holding him in loving arms. My heart is broken.

Hey Brodie,
It was the most special privilege being your Aunt Kandice, even for the short amount of time you spent on this earth with us. You were such an amazing and loved little boy, and so perfect in every little way. It was so very special getting to hold you here on Earth, and I know Jesus is holding you until we all get to see you again in Heaven. Your Uncle Cameron and I love you, and will see you again one day. Watch over us and the rest of the family. You're the bestest nephew. 🦖
