    Oh Marie, my heart hurts for you and your family.
    I have lost a dearly loved friend in Breesy’s passing. It has been my honor to serve him since 1989, when I started at the VFW, and then at Perkins after that. He was one of the kindest most gentle spirited man I have ever met. I look forward to seeing him again in Glory.
    Brian and I pray for the love, peace, and comfort that only our Lord can provide over you and yours
