    I am sorry for your loss. I remember him from Midway High School when we met in our Junior. He was always a caring and positive guy. I went to Midway High School sporting events and was there with me for most of them except basketball since I was the basketball manager for the boy’s team. He truly is angel as he impacted other lives’ positively. Unfortunately, I cannot be there physically but spiritually I will be at the funeral and visitation.

    Praying for the best for the family at this time in giving you strength y’all need going forward!

    I was Braylon’s kindergarten teacher. I remember him as a smart student with a huge smile. Other children were drawn to his charming personality. He was such a handsome little guy with his blonde hair and big brown eyes! It is my prayer that his family seeks and experiences God’s love and peace. My heart is broken. God bless each of you!

    This has sits tragicly full of what ifs and why Lord why. Ryan, Chealsea, and Braylon we’re a like my brothers and sister, I had countless memories of Bam-bam as always called Braylon. He was a friend a cousin ,My brother, and a insightful creative humorous human being and I have steadily had the joy of loving him and Twila, and the pain of loosing them, it makes my poor heart skip a beat. Not a sunset just yet, I want to relish this for the beauty that is love. Keep it Real. Kenner Ray
