I feel lucky to have known Brian. Getting to know him, during his years at Pond Hill, was very special. His loss will be felt by so many. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

Brian marched to his own beat, spoke his mind, and wasn't afraid to take a risk. He always was cheerful and uplifting. He would be encouraging and try to help others anyway he could. He helped me find silver-linings when I was in a bad situation my senior year of high school. He was like a little brother to me for always offering advice and just being there. He was very loved and is missed dearly. My thoughts and prays go to his family. Remember and cherish the good times and use those to keep your head up and heart full.

The loss of a child is extremely difficult, may you find comfort in the words found at Psalms 119:76 and may the hope that you will see your son again comfort your heart and give you peace, strength, and hope in the days ahead.
