Brent's brother David

It is with a sad heart I that write this post to let you know that Brent's younger brother David has passed away unexpectedly.
A real tough time for Brent and the family dealing with this loss.

I have talked with Brent and hope to spend some time with him on Tuesday.
I believe there will be a Memorial service next Saturday and will keep you updated in a couple days.

Brent, my condolences to you and your entire family at this sad time. You are in our prayers.

Thanks, details & advice

Thanks to all for prayers, kind words of comfort, & well wishes.
I am certainly unhappy about it, but it looks like diabetic trouble - HIGH blood sugar levels, sneaked up on David, hit him hard and fast, and took him out. It surprised everyone, including his doctor's office staff, that he saw shortly before his demise. Brother Jon took him to the hospital early Thursday afternoon and David died in ICU about 1030 pm Thursday.

Visitation ; (no viewing cremation performed) Saturday 10-31-2015 0900 -1100 @ Bill head funeral home Hwy 120 (Duluth hwy) Duluth, GA
Memorial service - following Visitation 10-31-2015 11 am same location

Advice - take good care of yourselves, and get your blood sugar levels checked.
It is a great big beautiful world out there
