I send my sincere sympathy and prayers to Brian's beautiful wife, children and family. Brian was my good friend from Adam's Jr. High. I remember talking to him about my church. And he asked to go. I was shocked because my junior high friends could care less about church. So I asked my mom to pick him up and we would take him to church with us. He was such a nice and friendly person. I'm praying for you all.
