Teresa, Casey, Lindy,& Chris, you are in our prayers. May God help you through this tragic time in your life. Bret will be missed greatly. He made a big impact on many of the teenage boys in the area. He grew to be a second father figure to many of them. Now he flies with the angels and we shall meet again.
