    Dear Yolanda and Family,
    Although we don’t know you and did not know Brent well at all, we watched with admiration his drive and persistance at making your gardens, yard and home so beautiful. As neighbors we would walk by and say hello to Brent as he was working in your yard. We could tell how much he loved being outdoors in your gardens.
