Wyoming, MI (WZZM) - When the bullying became more than he could bear, the family of Brandon Larson says the 14 year old boy took his own life.
"It completely shattered my heart," says Brandon's cousin, Allyson Talsma. "Somebody got killed because of bullying."
But instead of hiding Brandon
s suicide, Tuesday night his family and friends held a vigil to remember him, and show the consequences of bullying.
"It was not right for kids to treat him the way he was treated," one young girl told the crowd of mourners holding candles. "No one should ever go through what he went through."
Many of those closest to Brandon say they didn't know how he was suffering. On the outside he seemed happy.
