While I was looking for someone I saw the word unexpectedly, when I read of the loss of someone so young and as a parent I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a loved one, to lose your child, can bring such pain but Jesus gives us loving assurance at John 5:28,29 that you will have him in your life once again. Until God’s promises come true may every good thought, every memory of the love you felt, flood and overtake you with calm and peace to help you through the dark moments. Please go to jw.org for more encouraging scriptures that answer why and videos to help heal your broken heart 💔 https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/VODMinistryTools/pub-imv_4_VIDEO

We loved Brian. He was always quick witted, snarky and friendly. I am so sad about his abrupt departure and shocked by it all. I saw him less than 3 weeks ago and he had me laughing as usual and he shared about getting engaged to his kindergarten sweetheart and blending families. He seemed so happy. May his soul Rest In Peace. Brian you were awesome and always made my husband and I smile.
