Heaven gained another angel. Anyone who ever met my brother Brian knew they had met a great man. He was always ready to lend a hand to anyone who needed it. He would always be working on something. He will be missed by his family, friends and co-workers. May he find eternal rest and may God bring comfort and peace to the family.

Hello. Upon reading about Brian I want to say first that I am so very sorry for your loss. He sounds like he really lived life to be outdoors. My father was like that. I wanted to share some Bible verses that brought me comfort when myMother died recently. In 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 assures us that God wants to comfort us. We find comfort in many ways in God's creation around us and also fromHis Word the Bible. Another scripture that I found comfort in is inJohn 5:28-29. Here Jesus promises thatthere will be a resurrection. My favorite verse is in Revelation 21:3-4 whereGod promises that he will spread his tent over us and there won't be any sorrow,pain and death will be done away with. I know you will miss Brian and you have my sincere sympathy. Sincerely, Sharon
