My deepest condolences and most sorrowful sympathy are wrapped in my deepest prayers, unending love, and thoughts for my Aunt Alpha, cousin Krissy, cousin BJ, and their entire families. Uncle Brian helped me a great deal with so many things, especially after my own parents passed. Both Uncle Brian and Aunt Alpha helped me see so much beauty in my life and to appreciate the little gifts and miracles along the way.

I love all of you so much and look forward to the days I can show you!

All my love, Dawn Smith and family

My sincere condolences to Alpha and all of the Rogers family on their loss of Brian. I have fond memories of Brian from the weekly Gin Rummy games at Great Waters where we first met and all the fun times playing golf with the O'Leary group and the special times at The Lake Challenge annual golf tournament. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.

My most touching memory of Brian was his sensitivity in calling and asking about Wally when Wally was hospitalized with pulmonary embolisms. Wally and Brian had been in similar golf groups. Through the crustyness the caring person was visible.
Our condolences to Alpha and the Rogers family on their loss.
