Tom and Laurie,
While I did not know Brett directly, I have been around the McManus clan for years. I am so so sorry about the passing of Brett. I hope that over time, the pain and suffering that you feel today will be replacement with smiles and laughter as you remember the cherished times spent with your son.

My condolences to the McManus family. I had the pleasure to have met Brett and work besides him. He was a smart hardworking man. To say he will be missed is an understatement. Rest in Peace Brett.

My thoughts go out to Brett's family. He was taken from us too soon. I have fond memories of spending time with Brett in Biddeford, Maine. He was full of life and I know he will be missed dearly by his friends and family.
