He was preceded in death by his great grandpa, Robert D Scadden, and his great grandma Dorothy Nienstadt.There are so many people that played a part in Brogans life that we can never adequately thank. His first pediatrician, Dr. Frank Kramer who compassionately helped us navigate our way through the first ten plus years of this complex journey. The nurses from Ivy Lane Pediatrics; who came into our home and hearts each night, please know how much we appreciated the loving care you provided Brogan. A special thank you to Wendy and DeDee from the TC Waiver program; to IHC homecare and hospice, and Russell. The uncertainty of this last earthly journey for Brogan was terrifying; you all helped us realize that death isn’t final. Brogan lives on in the way he’s touched others hearts and souls.
