I work at the DOTD headquarters building. I probably passed Bryan in the halls a few times a week, just saying hi and going about our work. He was always a friendly and hardworking guy. I am sorry to hear about his passing and will keep his family in my prayers. My family has experienced the loss of a young loved one recently and I certainly know what you are going through. Please let faith in Christ help to guide and restore you one day at a time.
