Ken, I am sorry to hear of Brian's passing. I have been thinking about him and your concern the last time I saw you at Powdersville. I have been out of town for a week and just returned today (Sat). You and your family are in my prayers and thoughts.

I was very saddened to hear of Brian's passing. Brian, myself, and several of our friends went to Myrtle Beach together for Senior Week when we graduated. We all had a very good time. And, while I will admit we really did not stay in touch too much over the years, that trip is how I will remember him. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I was very sorry to hear of Brian's passing. I only knew him thru phone conversations (while he and I were trying to help a mutual friend) but found him to be a thoughtful, caring person. He will be missed by many people, including his family. My heartfelt condolences to his family and close friends. God Bless you all.

We will miss him very much.

Ron said, "He was one of the most humble people I knew." I couldn't agree more. We'll always remember Brian with love and kindness. He was so very special -- and he could make a broken piano play like new! To those who loved him, we send our love and prayers.
