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.
Brett always had a smile on his face. He was a great guy with a huge heart. He will forever be missed. I am happy for the time we had as a family.
My heart and prayers are with all of the family. Trent, I remember many great times and laughs with Brett when we were in high school. I am so sorry for your loss!!
Janet, I’m so sorry to hear about your son. May God be with you at this difficult time. My prayers are with you.

Oh Trent, Melissa and family I am so deeply sorry for your loss. May he Rest In Peace and watch over all of you!
I am so sorry to hear this. Brett was a great guy. My condolences to all the family.
Praying for your family and strength to heal from the loss of a son! God be with you to comfort you during this sad time.
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.
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 : ))
