Cathi, Mikala, and Dennis - I have so many memories of Bryan from the summer when he was a baby and I lived with you (Cathi). He was a happy baby and wasn't above sneaking out of bed to play with Dennis. And, Mikala, I remember your beautiful wedding and how happy he was to marry you. Of course, I remember being a part of all those family events, happy and sad. The last time I saw Bryan was a couple years ago; he was smiling. God be with your families.

Melanie Buettgenbach

Bryan and I attended school together from our elementary education through our high school graduation. I remember visiting him one semester during his time in Maryville, and he surprised me one semester with a trip to Warrensburg for a visit. We attended many sporting events in our early adult life and I always enjoyed his company, no matter the activity. I pray that his family may take comfort in the faith and hope of the Resurrection.

Cathi and family Remember the Yesterdays Live the Todays and May God bless your Tomorrows. God will care for him now.
