Brayden James Worden was born May 23, 2015 to Michael and Michelle Worden. Brayden simply couldn’t wait to enter this world and he made his appearance known one month early. He was born at 1:37am at Avera Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He weighed in at a perfect 5 pounds 11 ounces and was 20 ¼ inches long. From the moment that he was born, it was evident that he was the perfect combination of Michael and Michelle. Everyone who came into contact with Brayden knew what a blessing from God he was. He received constant compliments about his handsome looks, beautiful smile, and joyful presence.
Brayden’s contagious happiness warmed the hearts of many. He had a vibrant and beautiful soul that could brighten even the toughest of days. When his eyes would meet your face he would release a smile that could penetrate your heart and simply fill you with joy. He had a love for experiencing and exploring new things. Watching him discover something new for the first time was truly a blessing. He was fascinated with the various textures and sounds of his numerous toys. He loved being rocked to sleep, hearing soothing lullabies before bedtime, being snuggled in warm blankets, and cuddling with his parents. Brayden loved being outdoors and enjoyed the fresh air. He delighted in bath time and adored reading books with his parents.
Brayden was truly blessed to have met so many amazing family members and friends and to have had the opportunity to experience so many wonderful life events with them. He was able to go camping and fishing. He attended softball games and burn out competitions. He was present at family reunions and visited various family members in different cities and states. In the short amount of time that Brayden was physically here on earth he experienced more joy and happiness than some people get to experience in a lifetime. He was loved fiercely by his parents every minute of every day and he was absolutely adored by grandparents, other family members, and friends. His passing will be deeply felt by all who knew him.
