Not sure what to say?

This year will be 15 years since we have seen you, heard your voice, seen that smile, or got that hug. Sometimes it seems like yesterday and other times it seems like a lifetime that we felt those things.....I am here today, however, to once again thank all those people who continue to remember Brent - yes even after 14 years

Never forgotten. Our love and good wishes to all those who loved Brent in life and love him still. It seems nearly impossible to imagine that Daniel is now an adult, and that Brent would be 55 - still with the amazing smile that lights up his photo - and of course the story behind that yellow wrist band is special too. Blessings for Thanksgiving to each and every one of you.

Happy birthday son. It was 53 years ago on April 29, 1965 God chose me to be your mom. You were born with a whole head of dark hair and chubby cheeks. It was an honor and a privilege to raise you. I have so many happy memories of you as a child and as an adult. You got into your share of mischief but nothing really bad. You were such a happy child and always willing to help others. You continued your quest for knowledge and your mission of helping others throughout your life. Your smile...
