    I have no words adequate enough. ???? My heart breaks for the entire family, especially Toshia & Scott. Braiden was an awesome kid, a very sweet little boy. It always made me smile when he used to come to my & Eric's house to drink "blue dews" (blue raspberry Mountain Dew). I can only hope & pray that God can somehow comfort each of you through truly sad & tragic time. Keeping you all in my thoughts & prayers. ?
