Baily was ALWAYS so sweet to my daughter Mallory. Although he was older than her... he just went with the flow. He was easy going and carefree-he would play whatever Mallory sugested-even if it was dress up.
Sweet Baily Boy♡♡♡♡you are missed.

Bailey was such a sweet, polite young man. I’ll always remember how kindly and patiently he listened to Ayden go on and on about video games at this lunch. Bailey took a genuine interest in what Ayden was talking about and they talked back and forth. I believe Ayden liked talking to Bailey so much because Bailey made him feel valued and important. That’s the kind of guy he was. Our heart breaks, and we can not believe that he is gone.

Bailey was such a sweet guy. When I’m sad, he always tries to cheer me up. I always call him Baluu instead of bailey:)
I remember that he always plays the game smash brothers, and he was good at it too~
You will always be in my heart Baluu.

I don’t have just one favorite memory of bailey, But when we worked together at Chuck E. Cheese we always did creepy snap videos and pictures of eachother and send them back and forth . I was really sad he was leaving so I made him cup cakes and took a picture of him on his last day❤️. We Would have really bad picture wars. It was so funny , and it was a game who could get the last laugh. After he was gone from chuck e we hang out a couple times and I would run into him in random stores and I would send him pictures of me in the same place or behind him . And he would get me next and it was always a good time seeing him. It would be so random when we’d catch eachother but it was nice . Seeing him smile because I would act like I hadn’t seen him in a thousand years was heart warming . He’s definitely going to be missed and I’m sorry that I hadn’t gotten to known him way more than I did. Gone but never forgotten bailey❤️

One of the memories I have from school is I would always ask bailey for markers because I would always forget mine. He was so kind to me and always said yes when I asked to use them. Your son was a very sweet and funny kid. I’m so very sorry for your loss.
