I will never forget the moment Jim Brant walked up to me in the stillwater high school parking lot, took a cigarette out of my hand, threw in on the ground, stepped on it, then turned and walked away, all without saying a word. It was a loud message that I've referred back to many times throughout my life. Thank you for caring, Jim.
Praying for you Brant family.
