Thank you for sharing all those photos. What a kind soul he was. I know his family and friends will miss him terribly but I know he is okay and in a better place. I smile at the thought of Chuck, Deb and Bryan hugging and seeing each other again with big smiles on their faces. Praying for you all.
With Love, Cindy White (Mansur)

Bryan your smile and laughter will be greatly missed. The fun we had at Family Tree pranking each other still makes me chuckle. Godspeed until we meet again. To Bryan’s family our prayers are with you in hopes to ease your harts if only for a moment. May God bless and keep you ...... Love Linette and Gabe Perez
