    I am sooo sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. The Lord took another angel home. I hadn’t seen Brian in a while but when I last saw him he reminded me of when we were in school together…so many of our classmates are gone on now…this is so sad. Praying for his family and friends for comfort. <3 ya Brian. may you R.I.P.
