    So sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. I worked with Brian while he was at PRO-TEC Coating Company. Although I did not work directly with him, we still had the opportunity to chat once in awhile about different things. I’ll always remember the time that we went out after work to drink a few beers, eat pizza and play some pool. I even remember the time he made the effort to stop by after work to visit me while I was attending a seminar in Pittsburgh. I will sure miss Brian and his pleasant personality.

  • Michelle

If there is anything we can do to make your days or nights a little brighter or easier, please let us know. We are here for you and your family. We are just a call away. We love you and so does God.

  • Ursula Jefferson-Flowers and Family

    Aunt Betty, Lisa and Gill, my heart goes out to all of you as you prepare our loved one for Eternal Rest. Cousin Brian touched many lives with his unconditional love and his sweet sweet spirit. Cherish the memories that he leaves behind and know that one day your paths will cross again. May God grant you Peace as you take one day at a time. Love to all of you.

  • Denise Grayson (Berry)

    To Brian’s family, You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I must say it was such a shock to hear that Brian died. Aunt Betty I admit that I do not know how you feel, however seeing my mom mourning the loss of Candy. I feel for you and hope that you and all that was close to Brian will keep him in conversations in the many struggling days to come and keep on hugging each other. At this time nothing will seem to take away the pain in your broken hearts, but believe me when I tell with God’s help you will learn to move ahead in your lives…..and if Brian was here he would be happy to know that. I want to leave you all with something from the scriptures that is so comforting and encouraging. Ps. 34:18 reads Jehovah is near those broken at heart And those who are crushed in spirit he saves. In vs. 17 reads that they cried out and Jehovah himself heard, And out of all their distresses he delivered them. Our Heavenly Father knows your pain and like the scripture reads he will help you. And, If you want to know more, please go to our website—JW.ORG. May God be with you all and hope to see you tomorrow. Love Ya, Denise
