My Story

Brayden was a free spirit who loved everyone unconditionally and didn't take anything too seriously. He loved to tell people "I'm a hugger!" and gave hugs freely, even to complete strangers. He always had a smile, even when things were at their worst. He has touched so many people and has taught us the way we should live our lives. Tomorrow is not promised and life is short. Hold on to those who love you and forget those who don't. Don't let the small stuff get you down. Focus on the big picture and you'll soon realize those little things don't matter. Hug the ones you love often and tell them you love them. Look past people's differences and you will see similarities that often led to greater friendships. These are the things that Brayden has taught us in his short 5 years on earth with us. He has made us better people. He truly is our hero!
