  • My best friend Brett, I’m going to miss you. We had so much fun together at Gettier. Oh, my God how you are ascared of horror movies and bugs.You screamed at everything (lol). God had you come into my life for a reason. I;m so glad that he did that. I love you. You will always have that special place in my heart, I will never forget you. Please watch over me, when your up there. Rememeber when we did the ships in Jersey, that was so much fun. Sometimes I can;t believe your really gone. Your service yesterday was really nice. To Brett’s mom and dad, you had a wonderful and bless son. Brettie touched so many lifes. I will never forget him. Everytime we would see each other, we would hug. Like we havent seen each other in months. Our boss Gene would always put us together on sites that we would have.We did the strike in jersey, and he rode his bike down there, and the next morning it was raining, Poor Brettie had to drive home in the rain. The next day at the office, we laugh so hard about that.God I’m going to miss him.Yesterday, we all said or goodbyes to you, but it still doesn’t seem real. We had an angel down here on earth, and now God has his angel back with him. Rest in peace my friend. Love and miss you always, your best friend Lisa.
