Frietas was remembered fondly by other students.

Lindsay Futch, a senior, shared her thoughts about when she and Frietas attended Decatur High. 

"Bradley was someone who was friends with everyone and was just so sweet and was there for you if you needed him," Futch told the George-Anne, the GSU student newspaper. "And I say that he was friends with everyone because we all knew how funny and smart and sweet he was."
