Dear Bryan: Death ends a life but not a relationship. What a blessing to your family and friends that they had you in their lives. Although we never met, I knew you somewhat through your art and the notes you wrote. Your work is incredible...Your fine mother, who is very dear, is one of my oldest friends. Her love of the natural world, her friendliness, creative spirit and sense of humor have been passed to you... I look forward to seeing more or your work...Words say so little when grief is so big. But the wonderful memories must be comforting. I send my love, Janice Atkins
I'm so sorry for your loss. My wife, Anne, passed away last year. Her work was hanging with Bryan's in the Westminster alumni show this month. We were both great admirers of his art.
Bryan was a well-loved, loving friend. An inner light seemed to shine out through his eyes, into the world. His friendship touched my being at its core, and brought joy. My heart goes out to his family.
Gina & Forest, our thoughts and prayers are with you both. May you find comfort & peace knowing you are loved by so many. May God bless you and hold you close. He counts every tear.
With love & gratitude for having known such a wonderful human being, Angel, auntie Chris and family
Brian was an old friend that I have never forgotten. We were young friends that played in the barns went on camping trips with our dads. We formed and passed on life long relationships that continue to this day. I only wish I had been more a part of his life but know if we had gotten together at any point we would have picked up where we had left off. Shooting a gun out of his bedroom window or having a hay day in the barn with cousin E.S.
My memories are real and current; what a great guy Brian was even when he tickled your palm with his half finger.
Peace my man. I'll see you later.
My my love and best to the family and true believers that only the best and good are taken to make our lives better in other ways.

Bryan brought so much life, light, love, and laughter into our world, so many good times and good meals, so much beautiful art to fill our home. The most hands-on person I ever met, and whatever he touched he changed. He touched so many of us. My thoughts and wishes go out to his family: I am so sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful wonderful man.
Bryan was like a son to me. Harry and I are in shock .Gina...,Liz,Chaz ...my love I send to you. So many memories of great times. Loved Bryan so very much. Andy and Harry Greene
It has been the greatest gift to have known Bryan since the age of 3 through all stages of life. He was fantastically unique in every way. His genuine spirit has brought people together from all walks of life and made us all better. We love and miss you.

How do we remember Bryan? A true "Bon Vivant", a great friend, and the coolest cat I ever knew... Gina & Forest, our hearts go out to you both...
I still remember teaching Brian at Renbrook and having met up again with him through my grandchildren was wonderful. He will be missed.
Our hearts and prayers go out to you both. He will be missed. With love the Zenuh's, Dylan, Evan, Katy, Nolan, Jen and Shawn.
The finest person it has ever been my privilege to know.
