continuing prayers for the tragic loss of your dearest Brent, may you find comfort in knowing that he is no longer in pain, nor is he suffering, prayers especially for his 2 sons, whom he loved so very much, and was very proud of both of them, searching for the right words to say is pointless, for i know there is nothing i can say that can bring him back nor take away your pain and immense grief that is experienced with a loss of a loved one, just want u to know that i am blessed to have had brent, trent, beverly, and many numerous other family members in mine and my kids' life, in the years that brent and i were together, and consider myself the lucky one, so its with a sad heart that i send my deepest condolences for your loss.  if ever you need anything, plz dont ever hesitate to do so.
