  1. While I was never blessed enough to meet Bret, I am blessed enough to know his family. He left behind bright young men that he filled with knowledge, love and a desire to see the truth. I am grateful for their presence in our lives and will be forever grateful that he is part of them. Rest in peace Bret. With love, Brittany, Kirk and Kerri Rollins
