Legos and the color orange filled the room today as family and friends gathered to remember 10-year-old Sebastian Bradley of Williamsville who passed away May 18 after a battle with brain cancer.
While he will be extremely missed by those who cared so much about him, this wasn’t a day to mourn Sebastian because he wouldn’t want it that way. This was a time to celebrate his life and all of the joy he brought to this world just by being in it.
Even though Sebastian was sick, he made it his mission to help other kids fighting illness by starting Sebastian’s Lego Club, an iniative to collect legos for children in the hospital. A donation box was set up to do just that.
Guests were also asked to sign legos in his memory that were positioned in the shape of a heart.
The Buffalo Sabres remembered their friend Sebastian who was a great fan of the team. Throughout his journey, his favorite players let him know they cared and they continued that today with a beautiful flower arrangement and his Bradley jersey hung up.
Photos of Sebastian and his loved ones were also displayed throughout. It’s incredible how many lives Sebastian touched and how his smile and love for others made us all want to be better people.
Sebastian brought strangers together who turned into friends and made us believe we could do anything we put our minds to because he did.
Thank you to Sebastian’s family for sharing Sebastian’s smile and big heart with us. We promise we will never forget him.
