  14. Dottie and Keith so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We have been at a parish mission all week and have been praying for the repose of Brian’s soul. Sorry that we can’t be there for the services bur you have all our support at this unfortunate time.

  15. What can or do you say at a time like this other than to share your love. Perhaps the last stanza of a famous Irish classic properly conveys our thoughts and prayers…

    “And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me;
    And all my grace will warm and sweeter be,
    For ye shall bend and tell me that you love me;
    And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.”

    With All our Love… The Van Deventers

  17. Mr & Mrs Lauer, I was saddened to hear of the loss of your son. Keep trusting in Gods perfect will and he will heal your hearts. We know that if you are absent from the body, you are present with the Lord. My mom went to be with the Lord on Jan. 20th, so be strong. Love Beverly

  18. May God bless all of you at this tragic time. My brother Steven Bonnette and Brian were friends. I will always remember his positive attitude and free-spirit.
    May God give each one of you the peace and understanding that only comes from him.
