    Awww Nancy~ what beautiful reflections you shared of your wonderful son. I am grateful to have been Brent’s first teacher and to share in caring for him as a little guy! True to your words, Brent’s size and ability to articulate his thoughts at such a young age was notable.
    I am touched by the man he grew to be, but I’m not surprised. You were an amazing mother to him, and there was never a question as to what came first in your life~ Brent was always your first priority. In many ways you were one of my first models of the parent I wanted to be. I am grateful for the opportunity to have shared if your family life while I was in college at U of F.
    Brent was a joy from sun up to sun down and I am comforted to know his joyfulness carried him through the physical challenges he faced.
    I know that Brent surely made the world a better place~ I was blessed to share in the love and joy he brought to this world❤️❤️
    Love to you and your family on this special day of remembrance. I look forward to sharing in the celebration of Brent’s life~ holding you close in my heart Nancy. Love you ?

    Nancy and Bill, our hearts are so saddened with this news of Brent’s leaving this earthly realm filled with those who loved him but rejoice knowing he now walks lovingly with his JESUS on streets of Gold…probably skipping as I ponder on your stories of his growing up. Please know how much Cliff and I love you and will always hold a special place in our hearts for you and your family, especially at this time. If every you need anything, know that we are here for you.
    Love, Cliff and Bobbie Fraine

    Dear Nancy & Bill,
    Brent used his time well here! What a blessing to have been given the responsibility to raise this wonderful son.
    Though I did not have the pleasure of knowing him , your tribute made me feel as if I had. Praying that his memorial will reach the hearts of those that still have not made a decision for Christ and their eternal destination will be changed as a result. Jeff and I are very fond of St Patricks Day, we celebrate our wedding anniversary on that day!
    Love you both,
    Tracey & Jeff De Voy

    Nancy,
    Well, you succeeded in making me cry with your beautiful words about your wonderful son. I wholeheartedly agree with you. Brent is walking the pastures of Heaven with his Granddad and many others of your family and our family because in Heaven, I believe, everybody is family. . .a part of the family of God. There are many dogs and cats, pets that have gone on, running freely around Brent’s restored limbs. Oh, what JOY!!
    I love you, Bill and your children. Lean heavily on your family and friends.

    Brent was my first nephew and as Nancy said he was a joy to be around, he had such a contagious smile. I had the privilege of being Brent and Nicks gifted teacher when they were in the second grade at Redbug Elementary school. They had the highest IQ’s of all my students, but they were both so well rounded and grounded it was amazing that God had brought them together to be brothers. Brent will be missed by many friends and family but we are comforted by the promise of being reunited in our eternal heavenly home.

    Offering our deep condolences – what a beautiful memory you have written about Brent! I so enjoyed your visualization of his happiness being in his heavenly home and perfection. It’s easy to think of Brent as God’s child, now and always. May you and your entire family along with his friends feel great comfort in your beautiful love for him and the grace of God.
    Every blessing of Christ and Holy Spirit in your lives. ???
    Love, Mona and Richard
