My husband Dennis was a first cousin to Brian. His mother Ada was also a sister to his mother. We were so sad to hear about Brian’s passing. We have wonderful memories of him on their farm and time spent with his family. Our heartfelt sympathy to his family and prayers to lift you up during this time.
