Brian Howell, where do I start he has been a friend of the Hensel family when I was 10 years old, there has been a lot of memories , I will pick out a few we all remember his led foot when he was in high school and his red car we all knew when Brian was coming, and his nickname for me was muskrat he truly was one that made you laugh very kind spirit, and as we all had gotten order I never forgot having a talk with him about Jesus he had some thoughts about what does the Lord really say about something it was one of the best talks we had with him. and in his heart it seemed as though he already knew some of the answers , but he still listened to what the Holy spirit had put on our heart to say. he will be miss. we will be praying for the Lords peace to fall on the hole family Joe & Brian& Ash may the Lords grace be with you as you go though the hurt of your Dad, we will be praying for the Lord Jesus to heal you hearts as only he can. love you Love uncle Kevin and Aunt Maureen ( Moe )
