It felt like you were smiling and laughing with me just yesterday. When we met at Champlain College I knew we'd be friends right away, and I will be forever grateful for the time I was lucky enough to know you. I miss you already. You're absence doesn't seem real.

To Brendan's family,
I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you in this trying time. Brendan was a blessing to the world around him and everyone in it, and the world won't be the same without him.

I didn't know Brendan but having met his mother I know he must have been an amazing person. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you all. I'm a mom but I still I can't even imagine what you are going through so I send extra loving hugs. I wish I could have been at the service but was unable, however, my thoughts were and continue to be with you.

I met Brendan when I was 14 training at Vermont Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and it was an utmost pleasure to get to train with such a funny, bright guy. Brendan had a great sense of humor and not only that he was great on the mats, we'll miss ya buddy.
