Its heartbreaking for us to lose Brian, but right now Brian is enjoying a real life in His direct presence that the rest of us can only imagine. It was my honor and privilege to have known such a fine man. You and your family are precious to us. Brian, you will be missed. Until we meet again, Gene.

I am saddened to read of the passing of Bryan. I go a long ways back to our days of playing football. After graduating, everything I have known or heard of pertaining to Bryan was church related. I did not know that Mandy Andrews was his daughter until I read his obituary, but I immediately realized the connection that was between the two of them in having a great heart. I am so sorry for this family and communities loss, but I am almost positive that God brought him home for a reason. If their is any man that is in heaven, Brian is one of them. mAy he Rest In Peace, and God Bless the family

Michael Amason

Annie and I will miss Brian greatly. I remember him first as a Little League Baseball player and secondly as a stand tall Christian displaying what a Christian should. His example is one to be aspired to by all. We will miss him greatly.


It seems life and good times pass by so quickly and we are left with wonderful memories of times past. Brian was a great guy and a dedicated Christian. Linda and I remember the good times at Thanksgiving , but words are so insufficient to ease the pain of loved ones. Being loved and appreciated means so much in life and Brian was definitely loved and appreciated by many people. Brian is in God's Heaven where we will meet again. God bless Brian's family and we will pray for you. Your Brother and Sister -in-Christ : Buddy and Linda Moore
