Brent was my student for 2 years. He was so sweet, he loved sharing stories about his niece, his family, his talent in woodworking, hanging out with his dad, sharing his love of nature... He was a great friend to all who knew him and a joy to the whole classroom.
Family, be proud. He was a wonderful human being that made each persons life he came in contact with better. Be encouraged, that he was such a sweet, sweet boy. Please know how incredible he was to all of us also <3
You are all being prayed for fervently <3

Brent, my best friend for 5 years. He was always so sweet and caring, he was the definition of a gentle giant. He was always there to help me with whatever was going on in my life, even if it was 2am. He would've done anything for anyone and that's what I loved about him so much. God, I miss you so much, Brent. I wish I could get one last bear hug and tell you I love you. I know you're in a better place though...Fly high baby bro❤❤

I'm sorry for your loss. Brent was a special kid and his loss is felt by all.
