Dear Jean and family, I'm very sorry to hear about Brian. My heart goes out to you and your family and I want you to know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers. I've never forgotten how kind you and your family were to me when we both worked at Glass Service of Warsaw. We shared alot while working together those years and I'll never forget what a good friend you were to me and how you and your family became a part of me during that time. Thinking of you, Marla (Bratten) Kuhn

My husband Roger and I moved to Corinth with our sons Nick and Matt, from South Mississippi (Ocean Springs) in August of 1995. It was a wild week or two, with moving into the rental house, getting the boys registered and started in school, and getting to St James church. After schoold started and we could find the necessary things from the boxes at the house, about two weeks, I started working at my job down in Tupelo. Well, that gave me an hour for lunch, where I could certainly not go home (for y'all northerners, it is about an hour each way) so I went to the bookstore at the mall. Well, the word "bookstore" should tell you where this story is going. I was browsing, and I hear my name," Brenda" and there was this smilling face, that I could totally not place. But he identified himself as Brian Amos from St James in Corinth. And suddenlyI was no longer a new person at St James, I had a friend. How lucky I was to call him my friend for so many years.

Dear Jean and family,

We were greatly saddened by the news that Brian had passed away. Please accept our deepest sympathies. I have some great memories of working with Brian in Warsaw and we have both often recalled the time we went to see Brian referee a hockey game at Notre Dame with you and the Ickes. At the end of the game, Brian came out and told us all to walk to the car quickly.and without making eye contact. We had some good laughs over that.

Best wishes,

Jackie & Don Bergen
Warsaw, IN
