    I always thought I’d be able to see you again and you look at me like I was crazy or shake your head at us. I’m glad the last time I seen you we got to go on an adventure and spend a few hours together. You will always be with each of us in our hearts and the wind pushing us in the right direction. I pray you find peace and have all the adventures there is to have

    I am so sorry to hear of your passing. You always brought joy to my life and a smile to my face with your silly faces and goofy comments. You will be missed and I will keep your family in my prayers.

    I will miss my brother, but know that he shall dine on in the halls of Valhalla. May he drink merrily and his loved ones have much peace that he toasts and feasts among the gods.

    Bryon was my best friend for so long… he was a huge part of our online family of gamers. he was always there through the worst conversations and arguments, and through the most awesome adventures in the games we have played. he always gamed with us having a grin on his face we could hear through the sound of his voice. he was always to charismatic and upbeat, never having any bad words to say to anyone. our online family all mourns his death and will forever remember him and dedicate time out of our day to remember our fallen brother. and to the family, we are extremely sorry for your loss. he was an amazing person and our community has been honored to have known him and be graced with his presence.

    Bryon was always smiling unless his epilepsy was acting up. I miss my best friend so much. All I can hope for now is to see you again one day Bryon. I hope I can be as good a person as you were.
