We can't even begin to place into words how extremely sorry we are to learn about Brendan. Brendan was such a kind young man with such a friendly, outgoing and fun personality. He was loved by all who knew him. Brendan was truly an amazing son, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend to so many. Our heartfelt condolences to Dan, Kami and the entire Downey and Neshiem families. May you find some comfort knowing so many others have you in our loving thoughts and prayers. With much love, Jackie and Valencia
