He had just met a huge milestone in his life when he graduated from Permian High School on May 25, 2018. He was known as our miracle from god. We were blessed to have for 19 wonderful years. His little quirkiness seemed to make everyone smile. He has fought many battles but overcome most all them. But god saw he was getting tired so he chose the brightest Angel to take home.

He is survived by his parents Richard and Cindy Hardwick of Odessa, TX. His brothers Brandon and wife Bobbi Jo, Brian and wife Valerie, Sisters Brooke and twin sister Bre’ Anne all of Odessa, TX.

A special thank you to all his teachers, aids, bus drivers and their aids.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

“Those we love don’t go away They work beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved and missed and very dear.”

Pallbearers: Omar Fierro, Mikal Newton, Caleb Jones, Isaac Jones, Ryan Hardwick, Shawn Black.

Bubba I only knew you through your awesome handsome picture posted on my friends Facebook to pray.
My heart is breaking for your family and friends.
Your smile I’m sure lit up the room everywhere you went.
I know that you are running and playing and having fun with Jesus and all the other people Jesus loves so much.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends. Lord pour out your help and comfort and peace and strength and supernatural joy and bring laughter to heal throughout the days and years to come.
In Jesus name I pray. Amen

I was Braeden’s Nurse at Sam Houston.
Run with the angels Braeden!
He is doing everything now that he could never before.
Prayers for the family🙏
