yes, this is all true,
nothing happened to his mother, Besides losing her child.
But honestly I dont think you should have came to topix to get an answer!
If you really wanted to know, there are other ways of finding out.
This was such a sad tragedy for this family to have to cope with. I hope u got your answers, and sorry if u were close to him also.
So I think this thread should now be removed, not being rude to the first post, but his family has already been thru this, they dont want to read this stuff, cause its just a matter of time before it turns to something negative about him.
Rip Brent
only think of the good memories

Brent was waiting on a ride from Gary Henson. It was late and foggy. He thought it was his truck coming so he was going to wave him down to let him know he was there. Some guy on his way home from seeing his g/f was looking down into the floor to grab something and didn't see Brent. He was a beautiful soul and is missed and loved dearly every day!!!

Tell me how you know what Brent thought or what he was going to do that night. He died and unless you can read a dead man's mind you are blowing smoke. There's another side that no one wants to talk about here.

How do you know there isn't? The point here is someone posted like they read Brent's mind and knew his intentions when everybody knows that can't be the case.

Joe; I did not read his mind, but I know firsthand he was talking to his mom on his cell phone seconds before the accident, and he told her he waiting for his ride. He thought he saw him coming and then the phone went dead. It was a horrible tragedy. Brent was loving and kind and handsome. Always smiling and friendly to everyone. I know he is in heaven. RIP Brent we will all be reunited someday..

To the person who started this thread...you know good and well you started this to get someone to talk bad about Brent. How sad. His family has suffered from his loss. Brent always had a smile and I have many great memories with him. It was a horrible accident and should be left at that.
