I need to insert tqo more colums in the below query where instead of Max or Min , I need to get the first non null value. Can any some one help?

t1.ProcessSegmentS95Id as 'Segment',t2.ProcessSegmentS95Id as 'ChildSegment',
MIN(t1.StartTime) as 'SegmentStartTime' , MAX(t1.EndTime)as 'SegmentEndTime',
MIN(t2.StartTime) as 'ChildSegmentStartTime' , MAX(t2.EndTime)as 'ChildSegmentEndTime'

 FROM (SELECT * FROM [SOADB].[dbo].[SegmentResponse] where Depth = 0 ) t1 
  INNER join 
  (SELECT * FROM [SOADB].[dbo].[SegmentResponse] where Depth=1) t2
  on t1.SegmentResponseId = t2.ParentSegmentResponseId
  group by t1.ProcessSegmentS95Id ,t2.ProcessSegmentS95Id
   order by t1.ProcessSegmentS95Id ,t2.ProcessSegmentS95Id

When you say "first non null value", that implies an ordering scheme for the rows other than StartTime. What is that ordering scheme?
