    Brett worked with me when I was a manager at Country Kitchen and he always had such a great attitude that I can express enough how much he was appreciated. He always was so happy and there was never a time that I felt I couldn't rely on him, almost like "no" was not part of his vocabulary. It's been many years since I last saw him and this is a bit of a shock to me but I hope that he is at peace with his loved ones that have gone before him. To his family you are in my thoughts and prayers and please know Brett made an impression on many of us!

    Cindy and family I too am so very sorry for your loss. I went to school with Brett and grew up with the rest of the family. Brett left everyone to young. I am sure is at peace and is happy to be home with all of the family that also has already passed. Keeping you all in my prayers.

    Hi To the family and friends of Brett. I give my  condolences. Brett and I grew up together in school then when we were out of school we lost touch. Then 3 years ago I moved in to his apartment building. Man we did a lot of catching up. I will miss my friend. And the last time I talked to him he said keep the faith brother. Then they picked him up to take him to hospice. He had his bad times but he was a true friend. I will miss him d dearly. We talked and I know he is in heaven because he had christ in his heart.  God Bless us all. Sincerely, Bob Kastli
