  • We are deeply sorry for your loss. Prayers for Brent’s family and friends.

  • Brent was truly a great friend and the nicest human being I have ever met. In the short time I knew him I grew to love him like a brother, and I know he felt the same because he was one of the most honest and just real people I have ever known. I consider myself lucky just to have known him during his short time here on this mortal plane. He must have struggled mightily to keep his turmoil inside himself, and put on a warm smile and a hearty laugh for those around him in his last weeks with us. I just wish I could have helped him carry some of the weight of his burden and made his load just a little lighter through empathy, not pity, but true empathy borne of the love of a friend. I never got to know his wife and daughters, but I know how deeply he loved them. My heart breaks for you Deven, Rylei and Taryn. I know the condolences of a stranger may mean little in this time of such immeasurable loss and heartbreak but I need to share my condolences nonetheless. I miss Brent and I always will, God willing we will see him again when we reach the end of our earthly paths, and the tears will turn to joy and love. Always Love. I’m sorry and I pray that love will carry you through.

    • Thank you for your honesty and your feelings about my son. I wish I had met you. Your words touched my heart so deeply. I pray that we will see him and my tears turn to joy. I know he is not alone he is with his grandmother and she is holding him in her arms.

    • Thank you for your prayers we appreciate everything you have done the family of Brent
