David and Brendan. So very sorry about Brian. My prayers are with you. Above the clouds of sadness, the sunlight of God's love is always shining. Today you do not see it nor do you feel it and you fear the sunlight is gone forever. But wait a little while and the clouds will be gone and the sun will shine again. God never waste a hurt. Nothing is wasted, no tear is forgotten, and even the worst moments are used by our God to draw us closer to Him. I believe this with all my heart. I see both of you growing closer to God through this tragedy. Love you both very much.

Donna, girls and family, I am so shocked and sorry to hear of Brian's death. He was so much fun and so full of life. I am truly sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how unbearable it must be and what a hole there is now. I knew him only for a short time two years ago but I am glad we crossed paths. My prayers are with you all.
