Denise Hill - December 5, 2020

Cheryl I am so sorry to hear about Brett. It is unbelievable that someone who did so much with his life should lose it so young. I just wanted to let you know he inspired me so much. You shared something he had written for school and I remember it often. He wrote about many things but what I remember the most was I AM LUCKY TO BE BLIND AS I CAN ACCEPT PEOPLE FOR WHO THEY ARE NOT HOW THEY LOOK. I am heartbroken for your whole family.

Anja Hertle - December 4, 2020

My heart goes out to you, Cheryl and your family during this unbelievably sad time. You always lit up sharing Brett‘s stories and accomplishments at Curves. I know he was loved and treasured. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Carol Gray - December 4, 2020

I didn't know Brett except through the stories Cheryl told about him in conversation at Curves. But from those stories I knew Brett was kind, modest and a young man of exceptional abilities and promise. I also knew by the joy in her voice when she talked about him that he was deeply, deeply loved and appreciated. Losing him must be impossible pain, profound at a level well beyond my own experience. I'm incredibly sorry and saddened by his loss and the impact of that loss for Cheryl, Mike and their family. The world was better for Brett's existence and sadly diminished by his loss. My sincere condolences to you.

John Adair - December 3, 2020

Elaine Mason - November 30, 2020

The first time I met Brett was at St. Mary’s CES in Port Hope when he was graduating to St. Mary’s CSS in Cobourg. My role was to ensure that things were in place for him as he moved to secondary school and throughout his secondary career. That first impression was a lasting one as he was a confident , personable and mature young man. A true credit to his family. He noted that he had a goal of becoming a sports broadcaster. He proceeded to tell me of his love of sports as a fan and a participant. Throughout secondary school he maintained a positive drive throughout his programs and with life in general. It truly was an honour to have met and known this fine caring soul. May your memories sustain you at this difficult time. May God keep Brett by his side.

Brandon Ringham - November 27, 2020

Brett and I were teammates at Northshore Lanes in our Bantam years. You can imagine my young, ignorant mind wondering how bowling would work blind. Of course, Brett outshone all my preconceived notions of what that might have meant, with many games where I had the lower score! Cheryl and Mike, this speaks volumes to Brett’s tenacious nature and it truly hurts my heart to hear of his passing. Sending condolences and love to you and all of your family indefinitely. Grieving seldom gets easier, but coping with grief does, and my coping with this loss is knowing how absolutely brilliantly and unabashed Brett led his life. With Sincerest Regards, Brandon Ringham

Michelle Chard - November 27, 2020

Cheryl and Mike, it was a blessing and an honour to know Brett, what a wonderful person, our deepest condolences. Michelle, Mike, Sam and Jazmin Chard

Cheryl and Mike, Words could never convey how sorry I am for your loss. I feel like I’ve been a part of Brett’s life through all your stories Cheryl and I couldn’t have imagined a more loving, thoughtful son. I think you and Mike were meant to be Brett’s parents and you did such a wonderful job raising him. No one should have to suffer this loss and please know you and your family are in my thought and prayers. Take care of yourselves. Noel

Val Calverley - November 27, 2020
