I remember what fun he had with Pam at the campground and how in love they. Pam you and the boys are in my prayers and I no how happy the two of you were, Love Jan
Barb I am so sorry for your loss my prayers are with you, As Always Jan Abney.
We will miss the way you could make everyone laugh and smile! That special "Breuer" way! We had such a great time visiting with you and Pam at Geode, when we were all camping down there. You will be greatly missed by all and always in our thoughts and hearts.
What made Andy so unique & special? I will always think of him as "Bru" since that is what my husband always called him. After my husband died a couple years ago, "Bru" would always come up and give me a big hug and took time out to chat with me. Now, both Andy & John are in heaven and I'm sure watching over their girls together, Shae & Haley. I don't think there could be any prouder fathers. Two great guys taken from us before their time. I don't understand why God takes all the good ones.
Honestly I can't pick just one memory. You were always the person who could make me smile and laugh even when I wanted to be in a bad mood. I loved growing up through the years with you and watching you play sports. The last contact we had was when you commented on one of my FB pictures that my friends and I looked like the "real housewives of Piedmont,SC" I am still smiling from that one. Rest in peace my friend and give my love to everyone up there in heaven. Thanks for all the years of friendship.
A favorite memory is hard to pin down. Now that you are gone, they are all favorites. Spending time as children at your home in Danville. Lord, that pool was huge! Praying that you wouldn't do anything to get in trouble...Big Al's bark was worse than his bite. It was truly an honor to grow up with you. You were smart, sweet, sarcastic, funny, always there when I needed a big brother and you, my friend...NEVER judged. I'm sorry you had to go, but I'm happy that you're with your dad again. Everyone here sure misses you. Thank you for years of love, support and friendship. I miss you and love you, my first friend.
