“To know Brady Wallace is to know love. To know friendship. To know laughter. To know that you will always have someone there for you. Brady brought so many different people together by his personality that could light up any room he stepped into. He had an impact on everyone he met whether they were close friends or not. He made sure everyone in the room felt included and made sure they had a friend. There are not enough words in the dictionary to truly express how Brady was and made everyone around him feel. He will be in all of our hearts forever and his parents can be proud they raised an amazing son who had the biggest heart.”
