Eddie and I are so sorry for your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Brian making everyone laugh he was a great storyteller who could capture the attention of everyone in the room.

Brian was my last living grandparent. I never got to meet my Dad's parents, they passed before I was born. As did Ann-Marie, his wife, and my mother's mom. So, not only did he have his own place in my heart, but he filled the place in my heart for the three who were already gone as well. There were so many reasons to love my Grandpa, from his quick-witted humor followed by a muffled giggle to his love for the golf course. But, what I loved most is when he would pry me about questions about my life. Where I was going to college, what I wanted to do for a career and if I had a boyfriend yet. While I feel like most grandchildren would be annoyed by this, I appreciated it. It let me know that he cared, that he was listening and that he wanted to know about my life. We didn't get to see each other often because my family lives in Virginia, but the times we did get together I genuinely loved. I'll never forget the for the years I sucked my thumb as a child, he was my only supporter, letting everyone know that I did it because it tasted like chicken and they were missing out. Or when he called my Mom before my twin, Kate, and I started applying colleges to double-check that we were NOT applying to Boston College, a Harvard man through and through. He was so loved and will be so greatly missed. I'll get that Manhattan with Uncle Jason when I turn 21 for you.

One of my favorite things Papa always did was tell me severely random facts that absolutely no one should need to know. I could always count on him to let me know when the paper clip was invented, or something obscure and along those lines. Whether it was asking me how my imaginary boyfriend (whom he named Ralph) was, or impressively eating 13 tacos on Taco Thursday, he always managed to put a smile on my face. I'm going to miss hearing his wacky stories from his childhood and young adult years. I may not have made it to Harvard like him, but I know he was proud of me regardless. I'm going to have the phrase "hit the books!" stuck in my head in his voice forever. But, that isn't a bad thing. I wish I got to see him one last time, but being away at school makes that hard. Luckily, I can count on the fact that the last thing he probably said to me was "Papa loves you!" since that is always how he ended phone calls with me. So, all that being said, Bella loves you, Papa. I miss you and I love you.

To Gussie, Jason and Jennifer.
Kathy and I want to express our condolences over the loss of your Dad, Tish. Brian was a great human being and was a wonderful friend to us for 27 years as your next door neighbors. It was such a treat watching the kids grow up. Brain and Ann were so proud of all of you. When we moved there Jessiica was an toddler. Over the years we watched Jessica go from a little kid into a beautiful young lady. She was a part of the Boston Ballets, annual Christmas Nutcraker performance, for several years. We had the privilege of attending those wonderful performances and watching Jessica. Jennifer was a very good student and had a big circle of friends. Jason excelled on the football field as a hard nose competitive player. Jason had a load of great friends and was always ready to have fun.
Brian, was a gentlemen's, gentlemen, highly educated with a great wit. He was always entertaining us, with endless wonderful stories. We know he enjoyed his retirement and love his time with his Grandkids. Although we have lived on the Cape for twenty years, out thoughts of Brain and his family have never faded. Thanks Brian, for all of our wonderful times together. You will be missed.
Don and Kathy Clarke, East Falmouth.
