“Thank you for giving your life to save a child. Bless your daughter-may she know how much it took to leave her alone to help someone else-I'm sure he thought of her every step of the way. He is now her angel in heaven. What a hero he was.
“I would like to extend my condolences to the family. Death is never something we get use to. But know during this time you are not alone. Our Creator promises better days ahead. He will give you the strength needed to get through this difficult time.
“This is such a heart rendering thing. God considers the love that a person would give up his life for someone else.... There is "no greater love".
“In memory of Brian E. Kowalski
A true and faithful man who gave his life saving a boy and the thing he loved to do on August 13, 2013 in this location. God alone understands.
The Lord said, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Dear Kowalski and other families,
I am sorry for your loss. He is a hero! May his memory be eternal! God bless him and his family.
“This man is a hero in every sense of the word. I do not know your family, but theya re in my prayers.
“Brian was our neighbor and landscaper for over a decade. He was a good man and devoted father. When ever we crossed paths with Brian, he was with his beloved daughter, Erin. He is a hero and now an angel who saved the lives of two children & lost his life in doing so. Brian's legacy lives on. Brian, you are our community's hero. We will miss you, man. Thanks for always being so kind to us. Love to your family.
“My thoughts and prayers go to the Kowalski family. I do not know Brian on what I have read in the news paper. What a wonderful Hero. My God bless you and your family.
“We feel so sad to lose a great neighbor who also was a wonderful dad to his daughter. Prayers go out for Brian and family. We'll always remember you with pride. Pat & Keith Johnson
“Brian was our neighbor and landscaper for six years. He adored his daughter and delighted in her every step. It is no surprise to us that he would do everything he could to save another person, even at risk to himself. We pray for all those present at this truly devastating scene. Our deepest sympathy to his friends and family.
