In the short time I knew Bryndon at 3M, I'm glad I could call him a friend. The two of us spent months making Post-it Notes together and it was a blast. Even when he went to day shift, we still stayed in contact. I'm gonna miss his craziness but most of all, I'm gonna miss his friendship. He truly was a great friend. My prayers go out to your family for this difficult loss.

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.
