Dear Lori, Mallori and family,
We were so shocked and saddened to hear about Bryon. He was a genuinely nice guy and is going to be missed. Of course we know right now he and Jess are in each others arms, and that is a comforting thought. He is in good company. We shall be praying for you that Gad will give you the strength to get through this and comfort you. We are here for anything you need.
