Brendan had such a big heart. He was kind and empathetic towards everyone. He was quiet around most but I shared a lot of amazing conversations with Brendan. We loved you. And we know you loved us. I wish we had gotten to spend more time with you while you were here. I know you'll be watching over us. Love you Brendan.

We only knew you for a short time, but between the stunned silence and the tears we've been able to smile and even mimick his laughter. The story that seems to be a favorite for my twins and I was the time we all went to Panda Express because Brendan needed his "after meeting Orange Chicken"... He told us that one of his favorite childhood memories was when his father would take the family to some Chinese restaurant near LaGrange. As soon as the owner would see Matt, he would approach him, clasp his hands in front, bow forward and say: " Aaaaaaaaah.....Mistah Connah!". We laughed for hours that night, and every night he was nearby. You go eat all the Orange Chicken, Pizza rolls and Uncrustable Peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwiches that you want, Brendan....I'll keep raising the twins to forgive, listen, love and laugh...It'll just be a bit quieter now. You touched so many people. I was simply lucky enough to be one of them.
