Braxton had the heart of a lion. He loved his binki, being swaddled, and being held by his Mommy and Daddy. You could always tell how he was feeling by all his different facial expressions. Braxton will be truly missed by all.
A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. on Monday, March 18, 2019, in the Greenlawn Cemetery, Frankfort. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made at any LCNB branch.
