When I first moved to Tennessee from Texas, Bailey was one of the first persons who helped me feel like I belonged. He inspired me to become a better wrestler but more importantly an even better person. I will miss him so much. Bailey, you will never be forgotten.

I really didn’t get to meet you but I’ve heard so many good things about you. May your soul and body Rest In Peace big guy. I hope you have a safe journey. Maybe we’ll get to meet in the after life. But I am still sad I didn’t get to meet you. You impacted so many people and I see the work of God in you. Once again Rest In Peace. May God protect your journey.

Bailey was the light in his father's eyes! He was so very proud of you and I can't imagine the grief he is bearing now! Prayers for the entire family! Only God can comfort this great sorrow and I pray you will reach out to Him for help in your time of need!
