I'm shocked and saddened to learn that we lost Brennen, he was friends with two of my children, I spent 3-4 times recently with Brennen and them out in my father's boat. Another time they came over and we went and hit golf balls out in the state game area, I really liked him and we talked about things which I learned he was a very smart young adult, I'm just lost and wishe'd I knew he was having any problems, I would of tried to talk to him , so sorry , great kid who will be missed

Mookie was always so full of it, playing pranks on everyone at work after closing.
Most of the time he was the biggest pain in my butt, but I would gladly accept that pain if I could still have him here.
Grandma loves you Brennen and I will miss you until God call’s me home
