    • Thank so much, Molly. Brett and I had a very special relationship. He lived close and was always there for me and I for him. Now a part of me is missing.

  1. We are so saddened to learn of your difficult loss. Our condolences and prayers to your family as you mourn. Praying for peace from Jesus as you fall into his arms, and may you find joy in gathering with family and friends as you reminisce and celebrate Brett’s life.

  2. Kelly & your entire family; My heart breaks for you all with the passing of your brother, son, and friend. It seems nothing I could say or type could ease what you are all experiencing, and I’m so sorry that I cant take away any of your pain.
    I wish I could.
    As difficult as it must be, remember Brett’s awesome sense of humor, his love for his mom’s dogs, his deep voice & booming laugh accompanied by that mischievous grin. Remember his big hair in the 90’s and then when he cut it all off– Brett could wear any style and make it work! Brett had what seemed a calm soul, and when you got to know him, you learned just how deep his soul went.
    No doubt about it, Brett was one of a kind and he will absolutely be missed.
    I pray that the ache in your hearts subsides with time. I also pray that Brett holds a spot in your daily lives, forever.
    Lastly, I pray for healing.
    For us all.
    Rest peacefully my friend. Thankyou for the times we shared.
    Andee : ))
