Life is so unfair at times, we have to remember all the wonderful cherished memories that we shared. God puts people in our lives for certain reasons and we have to stay focused on that reason to see the lesson God had planned. We will truly miss that smile and that laughter, will ring in our hearts forever... "To live in the hearts of those that loved us is to never die"
Bryan will forever live in our hearts...

I have known Bryan for almost eleven years and I will miss his weekly visits and involvement in my business and in my life; I already do. He was so full of life, and you certainly knew when Bryan was in the building! No matter how busy I might be, he could always make me laugh out loud.
He was one of the hardest working people I have ever known. He talked with me about every subject imaginable over the last 11 years but the one common conversation and the one common topic was always his family. He loved his family (especially his children) fiercely, and they always seemed to be on his mind. I also knew that he loved the Lord, no matter what his struggles were in this life, I felt he had a real heart knowledge of Christ not just a head knowledge. He asked me to pray for him many times, and though I knew he struggled with some personal demons we never talked about it in specifics. Just because we struggle with frailties, imperfections, and lose battles between good and evil in this life, it does not mean that we are not saved to begin with. Salvation is a gift from Christ that can never be taken away. I always felt Bryan had had an experience like that with Christ in his life and it was one of the things he was always reaching for and clinging to.
When my life on this earth is over, I will look for you one day in heaven, Bryan.♥️

Watch over them and you precious grandchildren. Your are loved by many and missed by even more. RIP Bryan you will always have a very special place in my heart.
