Dear friends and family who traveled near and far to be with us for the Celebration of Life to pay tribute to our amazing Dad, we are very grateful. Your love, support, prayers, cards, flowers, donations, hugs and many other acts of kindness warmed our hearts.
The Celebration of Life was magnificent in the majestic mountain setting of Log Haven, in the meadow, by the pond, soon to be home of “Brig’s Bench.” Special thanks to Log Haven, Margo Provost, Ed Marshall, Faith Scheffler, Dave Jones, Ian Campbell, Dave Jeffers, and all the incredible staff, for the most positive, uplifting celebration and cherished day!

Ken and Karen Card, White Dove Release, you took our breath away with the beauty of those white doves being released and soaring in the beautiful blue sky, paying such a special tribute to our Dad.
Our special thanks to The Times Independent for spreading the love and our appreciation to all. Thank you for all your thoughtfulness.
To all of you who expressed your sincere love for our Dad, “Brig,” over his 87 years in what he called God’s Country “Moab” — think how he must be wishing that we could know today, how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. Think of him living in the hearts of those he touched ... for nothing loved is ever lost ... and he loved unconditionally and was loved so much.
Our Dad “Brig,” was a true inspiration and gift to all, leaving us with a beautiful legacy. With love and sincere gratitude, we thank you for helping us “CELEBRATE” his life.
