To your adorable family; We will never know why God has chosen your family to deal with such tragedy. But I must say, your strength is a lesson for us all. While his 4 years on earth, was not nearly long enough, considering the circumstances, you gave him a darn good one!! Through your grief may you also cherish the memories. With my deepest sympathy, Leigh Ann Towne

While I have never met you in person, I feel like a little piece of my heart has been ripped out today. I can NEVER understand your heartbreak right now, but I want you to know that my heart, my thoughts, and absolutely all of my prayers are with you and all who loved Brey my friend. While it was too brief, Brey had a life well done. Never gone...just waiting for us. I love you Ashlee (and family) and I am so very very sorry for this unfathomable loss.

So sorry for your loss. The little fighter can rest now with peace and no pain. He will be with us always. Brey is still watching from above. He knows he was loved by a wonderful family and friends. Did not know the little man. It feels like I knew him just by the posts that were on facebook. My heart goes out to the family. Stay strong.

Ashlee and Gavin~ There are no words that I can say or type that can ease the pain during this time. I know that you know Breylon is with Jesus and even with the faith in God it still wont be easy. Remember today was not good bye, You will be together again. Breylon was a strong, loving and amazing little guy because of you. You taught him strength and love. Breylon touched so many peoples lives in his 4 years that most adults couldnt do in 70. Your Breylon will forever have a special place in my heart because I am one of those whose life he changed. Thank you for sharing Breylon and his story. Love to you guys and the girls. Today Breylon is in paradise. *HUGS* Amber
