    My condolences to Joyce, Brianna, Andrea and family, I’m so sad to have heard about Brian’s passing. If there’s anything I can do please let me know. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Brian was a good friend to Steve Anable and I remember they loved to ski together. I am sure they are skiing on the clouds together now. I know death has such a huge sting, losing Steve to cancer 2 years ago has left a huge void but what a day of rejoicing that will be when we all see Jesus and sing and shout the victory. Your all in my prayers during this time.

    Brian was the one who lead me to Christ when I was just 16. Many, many fond memories. Maybe when I get to heaven God will let us take a few trips in a dune buggy again.
    Love and prayers to the family,

Got something to say?
