Keep Brian's Family in your Prayers

Many of you know my family suffering a difficult loss as Brian Dilworth passed away last week in somewhat of a mysterious manner. Rather than answer all of everyone's questions, this is the easiest way to post.

There has still not been a cause of death found and his body will not be released for some time, however a memorial service has been scheduled for this weekend and his obit and guest book are set. Attached is his link. Please keep Missy, the kids and Gerrity's in your prayers and keep you and yours safe and let them know they are loved it may change in the blink of an eye.
