Bryan

This afternoon our neighbor Bryan Groom passed away. He was in a tragic hunting accident a week ago. He was an ever present neighbor living in the house between us and the Rexburg Temple. He was always outside regardless of the weather or day. We chatted most days as I walked by on my daily walks. The topics were random. We would stop to visit him in the summer as he always sat out in his front yard or he rode up on his scooter to see us. Bryan worked on his yard tirelessly. It was a work of lawn art. He would snow blow his yard off so he could start mowing. He would mow and I would shovel on the same day. Bryan was always a good neighbor and friend despite his challenges in this life. The view out our front windows and porch just won't be the same.

RIP seems most appropriate for Bryan. I'm sure it's a somber time in the neighborhood and ward. Sending lots of love to Karla & the kids.
