    Deke and Douglas, I’m so sorry for your loss. I went to see Brian the day before he died and we chatted for awhile. When I left, we hugged and said I love you.

    RIP old friend. I have thought of you often through the years. I can see you smiling and the twinkle in your eyes from my memories. May God comfort and give you and your family peace.
