Dear Sam and Mrs. Traynor,
Sam I am so thankful to have been your SAL classmate for so many years and graduating with you. I always thought so highly of you, your father (Chris Traynor was bang on! The world could use a beautiful change from someone so brave like you as you have shown us ALL ..


Don’t think of Chris(Dad), Brad, Adelaide and Joey as gone away
Their journey has just begun
Life holds many facets
The Earth is only one
Just think of them ❤️❤️❤️❤️ as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think of how your Dad(Chris), Brad, Adelaide and Joey must be wishing
That you and your Mom could know today
How nothing but your sadness can really pass away
And think of them all as living
In the Hearts of all those they have touched
For nothing loved is ever lost ~
As your Dad(Chris), Brad, Adelaide and Joey was and always is loved so much

I will never forget the great memories our baseball team made when we played together 2 years ago. Brad, although we weren’t the closest, you were a great teammate to be around and an even better person. Sam, i'm thinking of you during this most difficult time. Your family will be with you forever. Rest in peace Brad, gone way too soon.

Love your Mets teammate,

When I think of your family, I see Loretta at Sir Albert Love, pushing Joey in a stroller and Adelaide at her side just waiting to start school...maybe coming in after one of our gym classes, where either Sam or Bradley had suffered some kind of injury, which happened frequently, because they were fearless and participated with such enthusiasm, no matter what the game or physical cost. Loretta, you were the best when I had to call time after time to report these gym mishaps, never upset with me because we all knew your boys loved to play and it was a joy to watch. I still see Bradley’s face, lining up to leave the gym and just sweating profusely with a smile on his face:). I never had the privilege of teaching Joey or Adelaide, but can’t imagine they were anything less than spectacular people...they were Traynors. Chris taught my son at Dwyer and so after I left SAL I got to know what an amazing teacher he was. There are no words to express to Loretta and Sam how hard it is to imagine them not in this world and the incredible, far reaching impact your whole family has had on so many❤️

Bradley, you have been a best friend of mine since I was two months old and since you were four months old. We’ve known each other forever, and I was even lucky enough to go to university with you! At the cottage we had so many good times! Doing the tug-of-war at the regatta, doing the canoe race at the regatta, the fires, swimming, going water skiing, and so many more memories! One of my favourite memories at the cottage with you would be going tubing! It was always so much fun! At university, I was so lucky to have spent orientation week with you, live in the same residence, be in commerce together, and take so many classes together. One of my favourite memories would definitely be taking our accounting and law classes together. I think our late night and pre-exam study sessions were my favourite! Those were definitely the reason we succeeded! These are memories I will cherish forever, I love you.

Brad, I'm so glad to have spent so much time teaching and coaching you (and letting you help me teach music that one year because we both know I have no musical talent). You were so well rounded and such a pleasure to be around. My favourite memory (and there are a few) is my last memory when I came down for the graduation the year that Adelaide graduated. You and Sam came up behind me, towering over me and you had to almost literally bend in half to give me a hug. This memory makes me smile which is easy because you were always smiling.

Brad, not only was I lucky to have known you from going through high school together but it was a pleasure getting to know you so much more through your beautiful relationship with my best friend. For that I am thankful, thankful that this summer we were able to go on a few double dates, that I will never forget. I know how loved you were and how loved you will always be. It pains me that I will never be able to hear about all the more wonderful adventures that you two deserved together. Your memory and the memories of your father, your brother and your sister will live on. You and your family will forever be in my heart ❤️

To Bradley Traynor

For in the eyes of youth there is no anxiety of the future and no regrets of the past, in that place of innocence anchors true joy.

The trials and tribulations of life have been taken from you, for that we are truly sorry.

We hope there is eternal peace for you, and that you can forgive all of the transgressions that have led you to this place.

May you find peace and your memory provide guidance for the sorrowful.

With Eternal Love
Uncle Chris and Cha Cha Sheri

I so clearly remember you sitting in the circle, looking like an angel waiting to say our kindergarten prayer and do our morning routines. I knew then how special you were. When my eldest son Lucas (20, your age) would come and visit the class you and Lucas would play together, it was priceless. It isn't fair that you are not here Bradley but God has a different role for you now...a guardian angel for those who need guidance. My heart aches for dear Sam, (whom I also had in kindergarten), and your beautiful mom. Keep them safe and warm with your spirit. I never had the pleasure of teaching Adelaide or Joey, however, a Traynor is a Traynor, wonderful, kind and loving.
Loretta, I think about you every day! Chris, Bradley, Adelaide and Joey will always be remembered in the heart of many.
