    I am so sorry for your loss of Bryan. I was Bryan’s first grade teacher. I will always remember him as the light haired little boy with an amazing smile. He was active and all boy! Hugs and prayers for his family and friends!

    I am so very sorry for the loss of Bryan.
    I have had the pleasure of knowing him at various points of his life and have always known he was a special kid.
    I hope the family can find peace is knowing the positive effects he has had on so many, and know that he will be remembered, at least by me, as an adventurous 3rd Grader, An inquisitive 4th grader, and a caring and encouraging brother as a 5th grader. And as an adult, a smart, witty, and deep thinking. I am grateful for the opportunites I had to know him.
    I am very sorry for his loss.
