JoAnn, I am so sorry about Brian. Losing a child is not the order of life as we understand it. I hope it brings you comfort to know he is with our Savior, and he no longer is suffering.

JoAnn, I am so sorry for your loss. My condolences to you, Chrisann, and all those who loved him.

JoAnn and Dave - I was so sorry to hear of Brian's passing. I have very fond memories of chatting with him while he waited in the lobby for rides when he lived at our Robert Sturges building. I wish I could have known him when he was in better health. I'm sure he touched many lives in the work he did, and know that he has gone to be with God.

Blessings to you and all of your family,
Barbara
