Bryan's remains were recovered by the NYPD Harbor Unit late yesterday afternoon, he surfaced not far from where he was lost last Wednesday night. My thoughts and prayers are with Bryan's family in this difficult time. He was a fine young man with a bright future, whose potential was lost to a senseless tragedy. He will be missed.

“Let not your heart be worried for where I am there shall he be also…” 
Although we may not understand God’s plan for us, trust in him and know that he will not forsake us or leave us alone just when we need him most of all. My heart aches for your family and you but trust in the fact that Bryan is comforted in our Father’s everlasting arms.


My prayers continue to go out for the family and friends of Bryan Johnson. He was a classmate of my daughter, and I know how much his friends are hurting. RIP Bryan, and thanks to God for the blessing that was you.

Bryan is truly going to be missed. His gentleness and kind nature, along with his great smile, was a welcome to anyone. We were looking forward to seeing him on the job at The DoubleTree next weekend, but that won't happen. Bryan will indeed be in our thoughts, and to the Laidley-Brown & Lilley family, we love you and are here for you!! S&P White & family

I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with Bryan about 4 years ago and he was the sweetest guy. His smile brightened the whole room. I am deeply saddened that this has happened to him and thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Bryan will truly be missed. R.I H Bryan aka "Jobe"
