  • Kathy and Russ, Years ago, we found a card that eloquently put into words what we wanted to express. It was as follows: FRIENDS SHARE YOUR SORROW Call on your friends - they truly want you to, when they don't know what to do to ease this pain for you. Call on your friends - they mean it when they say, "I wish I knew a way to help you through the day." Call on your friends - they may not know the grief you bear but they care and want so much to share ... Call on your friends. From your friends, Donald and Bonnie

  • Bryan was one of the coolest guys I've EVER met. I can remember when we were younger, him and his best friend (Stewart Mckinney) used to try to hang with the "Big Dogs", (Preston Mckinney) and I, and we would always tell them to get lost... Although I never got to tell him that those days meant alot to me, he will always be remembered and loved in my heart. God Bless you Jeremy, Kathy,and Steve!!!

Sometimes we take what we are given and run with it and sometimes we are guided by what seems to be only the wind, but this time we have a friend who will be guided by the hands of God, and for that we know you will be in the best hands. Bryan, your outgoing personality put many smiles on many faces. You will be remembered in our hearts, in our prayers, and on the soccer field; to your family and from your friends, we will miss you!
