I worked with Brian at the Jasper Police Department. He was an awesome cop and was looked up to by the community. He had the sweetest spirit and will be missed by many. I pray that the Holy Spirit wraps His arms around each and every family member and friend and comforts them with the Peace that passes all understanding.
*Fun memory: Brian used to jump from around the corner and scare the day lights out of me on a regular basis. He would just laugh and laugh!

My name is Jennifer Sanford. I worked with Ms. Jeanie at K-Mart. I am deeply saddened by the passing of Brian. I had the utmost respect for him. And I still do, and always will. He was a wonderful man. He always had a smile on his face. And a kind word for everyone. Once you got to know him and Jeanie, you became family to them. My heart goes out to the entire family. I just wanted you all to know that at this difficult time I am praying for all of you. If anything is needed, please don't hesitate to call upon me. God Bless You All.
