Dottie, Becky, Dean and family members,

Our condolences at the passing of Brian. Since we have been away from the valley we are sort of out of the loop with local news. Please call if we can do anything to assist in the upcoming weeks. We must trust that the Lord will never give us more than we can bear.

Our deepest sympathy in the loss of Brian, a son, brother, husband and father. I was shocked and very sorry to hear about Brian. I knew him to say hello at the store. My younger brother Steve was also deeply saddened, he shared a room with Brian on the Boonsboro Jr High Chorus class trip to New York in 1966 or 67 and were pals thru school. May he rest in piece.
