    Steve and Amy, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. May you find peace in the days to come. You were always so kind to me when I first moved to Kentucky and lived behind you on Fairway Court. Deepest sympathy to you and your family.

    I'm so sorry to hear of Brian's passing and praying that the family, especially Colin, can overcome their grief and sadness. Brian was very talented and was always willing to help someone in need.

    Amy and Steve: So very sorry to hear about your son's passing from this life. May good memories of better times comfort you as you grieve. May faith in a reunion with him in heaven provide you hope. (Steve you built our house in Walton about 30 years ago. Amy, we worked together briefly at Citi.) Wishing you and your family peace.
