Brody Dell Car Accident, Death – My name is Scott Friend, and I am Brody’s uncle. I am writing this letter on behalf of his family and friends. On Wednesday, April 5th, Brody was involved in a serious car accident that occurred. Due to the severity of his injuries, he needed a series of operations in order to be saved. After enduring a nightmare for forty-eight hours, he is still dealing with challenges that endanger his life. We do not anticipate that the weeks that lie ahead will be any less difficult because there will only be more difficulties. In the end, I, his family, and his friends are putting our faith in God because He is Sovereign over everything.
We have known for as long as we can remember that Brody possesses the skill of making friends extremely quickly. His smile is irresistible, and he has never missed an opportunity to show how much he values his teammates and is willing to give up for the team. Whether he was representing the Blue Devils or the Hanover Panthers, going to meetings of BNI, or working for an employer, he always put the needs of others above his own in every interaction he has ever had. The image of thirty to forty or more young people, the majority of whom I had never met, sitting patiently in the waiting rooms for two unending days and nights simply to hear SOMETHING about Brody’s condition is one that I will never be able to forget.
It served as further evidence to me, as Brody’s uncle, that Brody’s personality has remained unchanged since he was a youngster and continues to do so today. This message is not intended for Brody but rather for the person who is reading it. It is also not about funds or money in any way. Your life and his have had a divinely orchestrated intersection, and as a result, he is or has been a blessing to you. And based on what has been shown throughout these first two days and a half, a lot of you have made it clear that you want to be a benefit to him. And that you want to convey to him, Alyssa, and the rest of his family how much you care about them all.
We put our faith in God to take care of Brody, and we put our faith in the medical professionals to take care of him. The medical expenses and other demands that will arise over the next year to assist him in adjusting to the damage he sustained in this event will constitute the greatest unmet requirement as of this moment. Please pray for Brody, and if you are able to assist with the challenging circumstances he is in, I would want to extend our sincere gratitude to you on behalf of his friends and his family.
