    Still so hard to adjust to not having you here with you. You are so loved…and you loved us all so well. Such a life force in you Brian. You spoke nothing but words of life over all of us. Those words live on even in your absence. I will miss your smile forever. Thank you for the beautiful legacy of life and love that you left that lives on in honor of you and your love for the Lord. Thank you for helping us all to understand the purest of love as you modeled it in your marriage to Sharon and in your dedication to God. Thank you for always pointing us in the direction of our Savior and never taking glory for yourself. You showed us what true humility looks like. We are all better for knowing you. You deserve to hear the words “Well done” for eternity. Heartbroken still…Val xo
