Brian was my grandfather's grand-nephew and I have many warm memories of Brian, his brother Brad, and his parents Margie and Norman (kind, kind, people) coming for Thanksgiving, Passover, or other special events to my grandparent's apartment on West 93rd Street. As generations have been lost, first Martin, then both of my grandparents in the first decade of the 2000s, and now my parents in the last year, the distance has grown and contact has been lost. All I can say to Barbara, Brian's children, Margie, and Brad is that the Gale descendants join you in mourning the loss of our cousin who was clearly an amazing human being. Wishing you peace in a rough time and that Brian's memory is a blessing to all of you. Please know that you have a number of cousins thinking of you.
