    My condolences to Bretts family. I’m going to miss Brett, I just found out today about his passing. I will miss his visits and travel stories. I hope that wherever he is there is an abundance of hot peppers and winding roads.

    We were deeply sorrowed to hear about Brett passing. He was such a sweet and thoughtful man. He was a very good friend of my brother, Tim Duncan. There aren’t many people today that would take the time, but every Christmas he would stop and visit my parents. That meant so much to them and to me. He will be terribly missed. Rest in Peace.
