We are heartbroken to learn the news about the accident. Caden was in Lauren's 3rd grade class and I remember what a fine boy he was. I was so impressed by him one day when I went in to help with a party. He was so eager to help, and was so polite and respectful, such a fine boy. We moved to Thomasville and Lauren lost touch, but she said he was a great friend. We don't always understand life, but we know Jesus is close to the brokenhearted, so we try to find peace. Our family sends our love and prayers! Amy and Lauren Nix

Caden was a really close friend of mine. We dated when i was in 6th and he was in 7th. it lasted a couple months but after we broke up we were still really close friends. we would facetime all the time and were planning to hang out. when i heard the news i didn’t believe it. i was breaking down at school and didn’t go to school tuesday. my heart goes out to his family. he was loved by so many and cared for. he’s looking down on us. praying for his family💞.
