One of the nicest people I have ever met. When I started my job he opened up and made me feel comfortable and welcome. He always left me with a smile on my face, and I wish I could have done more for him. There is no telling what will happen tomorrow, but for today I'm grieving for my friend. Rest In Peace, Brian. I'll never forget you.

My deepest Condolences to his family.

Keith and I are so sorry to read about Brians passing. There are just those days where it's hard to understanding Gods choices. I can only surmise that "He" had a very important job waiting for Brian in heaven and needed him now.Maybe his Dad missed him more than we know.

Our prayers are with you and your family.

We do not need a special day
to bring YOU to our minds.

The days we do not think of YOU
Are very hard to find.

Each morning when I awake,
I know that YOU are gone.
And no one knows the heartache,
As I try to carry on.

My heart still aches with sadness
and my many tears still flow.

What it meant for a me to lose YOU
No one will ever know.

My thoughts are always with YOU,
YOUR place no one can fill.

In life I loved YOU dearly,
In death I love YOU still.

There will always be a heartache,
And often many tears.
But always a precious memory
Of the days when YOU were here.

I hold YOU close within my heart,
And there YOU will remain,
To walk with me throughtout my life
Until we meet again.

I love you brian, you were the best friend anyone can ask for. i will never forget you, and the memories we shared. may you rest in peace. you will forever be in my heart
