Bryan & I were great friends years ago. We were on The Port O'Connor Fire Dept. together. I remember he & I was on the roof of the motel punching holes while the fire was under us. Virgil hollering at us to get down. We had a lot of fun times together. I have always looked back on those times & smiled. I have & always will think of Bryan as a brother. Missed more than you know Bry!! Love ya!!

To the Redding family.. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I cried when I was told of Brian’s passing. Brian and his former wife, Tracy, were best friends back in the day to myself and my former husband, Dan O’Connor. Brian and Tracy were best man and Maid of Honor in our wedding. That was over 30 years ago but seems like yesterday. Brian will be greatly missed. He will never be forgotten. Jennifer, no matter what, you will always be your daddy’s little girl. I have so many fond memories of back then. Lean on Jesus for your strength and comfort. Love to you all.
