This is so sad. He attended Shelby's School, Grace Baptist.
It is so sad to lose a child to such a terrible illness, especially at such a young age. sad.gif

Prayers said for this family. I know their hearts are heavy right now. May God lift them up and keep them in his loving hands as this sweet child is with him now. wub.gif

I am not good with words but, I have watching the carepage for Brody for quite a while, It has touched my heart, in a way, no one will ever know. I have not received an update in a while but, I was sooo hoping Brody would kick the cancer. God had greater plans! He is not in pain, nor is he suffering and I pray God will comfort the Family in the days to come. They are in my thoughts and prayers.

I also kept up with Brody on the carepage. I worked with his Daddy at Cobb County. I have never ever seen a more faithful family during something so awful. They had so many ups and downs. They have a wonderful church family who have wrapped this family with love during the entire ordeal. They are gonna miss Brody so much, but know his pain is over and he is in God's arms now. They will see him again. wub.gif

I'm planning on going to the visitation tomorrow. I just don't think I could make it thru the funeral. I pray for comfort for the Bates' family and also all the young friends he had. I'm sure it will be hard on them dealing with a death of a young friend.
I think God will have prepared everything for our perfect happiness. If it takes my dog being there [in Heaven], I believe he'll be there.

Prayers are with you during this time I also went to school with Vince and kept up with him on Caring Bridge.
Vince you touched my heart so many times with your faith in God and "your storm" I pray now that God will hold
you and your family close to him during this time, and comfort you with his Loving Arms.
RIP Brody
