To the Smith Family,
Walter and I would like to offer our deepest sympathy to all of you with the death of your precious son, Braden. There are no words to ease your sorrow but our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God give you the strength and peace during this difficult time.
My thoughts are with your family during this very difficult time. We are all grieving with you.
Braden was among a group of friends here in DC that became tight very quickly. They connected as a group in their Freshman year in high school. Braden always walked into our house with a cheerful and energetic energy. He had a charming smile and an easy laugh. I will miss him.

A tragic loss to our world.. My condolences to the family. Although I only met you once Braden, thanks for the memory. May his memory inspire us all.
Braden was an amazing person and I am so glad I had the privilege to know him. I met him in 7th grade and we have been friends ever since. He was a good friend and an even better person. I am glad I have so many memories with him, I will never forget him, and I will always miss him.
