It’s hard to take in the news that I received last night involving the Rose Bud community. Brander will forever be a part of the Rambler Family and the Rambler Basketball Family. He will be truly missed each day. Please keep the Smith family in your thoughts and prayers.

My heart is broken for this family. Got to visit with him briefly Monday night at the gym. Great kid and a baller. Praying for peace for the family.
