    I am so sorry to hear about Brian's sudden passing.  I had the pleasure of working with him at MediRevv since his first day back in 2017.  He was such a wonderful person!  Not only was he an awesome teammate, he always had a smile, would ask me how my family was doing and how my weekends were.  I could always count on a great conversation with Brian, especially when we would discuss all things Star Wars & Stranger Things.  Brian was a truly remarkable person and will be sorely missed!  Peace & love to all his family & friends during this difficult time.

    I am sure that I speak for all of my colleagues here @ MedicRevv Scottsbluff, NE when I say how terribly sorry we are for your loss. I have a son who is 32, I cannot even begin to fathom your pain. May God hold you all in the palm of his hand until that day when we will all be reunited and there will be no more pain, no more suffering and no more tears!

    I went to school with Brian in grade school and high school. We reconnected this past year over facebook, and I was so encouraged and uplifted by talking with him. The love of Jesus was clearly evident in his heart. What a special guy. His life impacted mine. My heart hurts right now. But I can't imagine what you as a family are going through right now, so I just wanted to reach out to let you know I am praying for you all as you grieve the loss of Brian. Much love to you all. 1 Thess. 4:13-14
