Brian was my Mentor and a great supporter, especially when I was at Wayside. My work schedule kept me from the Celebration of His Life. But I want to express my appreciation for the love & support your family gave mine.
Grace and peace, Jackie Burgess

Brian was a great friend and confidant during my years in Manasquan and his time in Wall. We continued to share our joys and concerns as he ministered in Oakhurst and I in Toms River. I rejoice that he is finally free from his illness and is once again whole in the arms of God and those who have preceeded him. Bruce Quigley
