    Aunt Diane and Stephanie,
    I am so deeply sorry. I have been praying since I heard the news and will continue to pray for God’s love and comfort to surround you all. Although I am unable to be there in person I am in spirit. I will cherish the memories I had with Brian from growing up and at high school forever. I love you both.
