Dearest Rae: I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. I remember meeting him at Choices when you went through last July. He was so sweet, and kind and just in LOVE with you! I bumped into him last November at Choices and glad I had a few minutes to chat with him <3 You and your family are in my prayers. Love, Annemarie

I am just so shocked, Brian was one of the sweetest men I knew. He was such a good friend to Mac, and then to me and my brother, he will be sadly missed by my family. 44 is just way to early...

Brian was an incredibly sweet man, he will be very missed. I will have wonderful memories of him from when we all went to Bible study together, as teenagers. And as a member of our family when he and Sherry were together. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. May your memories sustain you.

Dear Mrs Thomson, Raelynn and Family; I am so saddened to learn of Brian's passing. I met Brian as one of his coaches at Choices. He brought to our group his amazing love of family and a quality of kindness and gentleness that he modelled for all. Brian was a good man. He was committed to being the best husband, father and friend he could be. My deepest sympathies for your loss. May the Lord bless all of you in your time of sorrow.

I was lucky enough to have met Brian at Choices in January of 2009. It's difficult to explain the connection you develop with people during an experience like that, but Brian was part of what made it so special. I feel lucky to have met him and experienced all the love he had to offer himself and others - especially under such unique circumstances. Brian will definitely be missed. He had a quiet way of making you feel like you were heard, and I pray that God gives his closest friends and family the strength they need to cope during this difficult time. Hugs and beans, here and after, forevermore. Tara.

I met Brian back in the 90"s when he was working for Mark Resources. Brian worked for me as a relief operator so I could take some days off and holidays. Always smiling and a great friend over the years! I got back into GP this morning and was shocked when I read the news in the paper. My condolences go out to his family - a great man you should be proud. Ron
