I'm sorry to hear this Lana and Michael, and praying for strength and healing.

My heart goes out to this family for their loss. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Brent, friends, teachers, classmates, nurses and especially family realize he was truly a gift from God. This young man had the most kind, loving trusting heart. He never judged anyone, held grudges, blamed not one person for any of his trouble. Brent never knew hate. He never knew disappointment. All he knew was love. His mom, dad and all his family made sure of that. He had a very special bond with his sister,Angela.
He had the biggest smile that made you have to smile too because it warmed your heart instantly. Knowing Brent should make us all learn to be better. This precious soul will be missed and will leave a void in all our lives. He will live in our hearts forever.

I am so sorry to hear of Brent’s passing my heart breaks for you!!! We will hold you in our prayers!!!

We are so very sorry to hear about Brent's passing. Many hugs and much love from your friends here!

Our deepest sympathy to you in this time of sadness. May the joys you knew and times you shared give you comfort.

Peace and love to both of you. You gave him a good life and that is something to be proud of. God will now hold him in his hands.
