“Brian, I realize you're not actually reading this, but of all the people I've known from Cornerstone over the years, you were "hands down" my favorite. I miss you.
I was so sad to hear about Brian. When we met over 25 years ago, I remember thinking what a Godly man. I will continue to pray for you and the boys.
“I wish so much I could've been able to attend the funeral to pay my respects and give you a hug, Dee. I think of you often and feel a little pit in my stomach for you. I pray the memories sustain you through the coming days and for blessings on you and the boys.
“Dear Dee, Brandon and Trevor -
Your family has always been a blessing to ours. The times I spent at your house in OKC were special. Both you and Brian were always there when I needed someone to talk to and the memories that I had of Brian was watching him be a wonderful father and role model to his kids. He appreciated his family time and the awesome family God gave him. He was also a great Godly man and was always there for his church family.
I pray for you guys every...
“My thoughts and prayers for you and the boys. I never meet Brian but from the words that you spoke of him he sounded like a great dad, friend and husband. I am sorry for your lose.
“On Wednesday evenings Brian and I would just visit with each other when he would sometimes show up early for prayer meeting. The times I especially enjoyed we're the times we spent in my office watching James Merritt on the net. He was one of our favorite preachers. To me, Brian was someone I admired as a family man, and as a deacon. Absolutely a man of God. I'm glad we got together at The restaurant last summer.
“I remember meeting Brian for the first time at Crestview Bible Church. I remember also visiting with him at his office, which I believe was located, at one time, across from Hutchinson Community College. He was a nice man, and I'm sure a good husband and father. He will be missed!
“To the Gaede Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Brian's passing. He was a great "75 classmate, but more than that he was a great friend. I regret we lost touch over the years.
I will cherish forever the memories from our past, the many hours on the golf course, drive-in movies, the gin games, and "cruising" with our friends.
“Dear Dee and Family,
My heart-felt love and prayers are with you during this time of shock, loss, and grief. My memories of "B" are of a sweet nature with his gentle presence and twinkling grin. . . .How precious life is ~ and how blessed we've been to have shared our childhoods' with Brian.
