Brian Robert John Diefenbaker Reid, I've known you since you were just a little fella, living with your family, just across the alley from our family. Younger brother to one of my best friends, Laurie, and I think I can say one of the best friends of my younger brother, Fred. We were just a bunch of young kids having some really good times together. Rest in Peace, My Friend. Unfortunately, my move to the other side of the Canadian world, kept me from meeting your own little family. Sincere condolences to Patsy, Nicole, Travis and your families, to George and your family, Shirley and your family, and Laurie, my Special Friend, and your family. Take care and never lose sight of the precious memories.

Larry Holkestad:

To Patsy, Nicole, Travis and all other family members. With deepest sympathy and heartfelt sorrow to all of you for your loss of a father, grandfather, brother, friend and most of all one of the nicest people that I got to know while we lived next door to each other during our high school days. We got into a lot of trouble in those days, but it was all in fun. Brian was a very likeable person and had a great sense of humor with all the people that he came in contact with or knew throughout his short life. For that I am glad to have known him. May you cherish all of your fond memories of Brian and keep them close to your heart moving forward. God Bless, Larry Holkestad.
