Think about Bryan from time to time especially when you hear about how a particular musician made it I always felt if he had the talent to go all the way

A fellow Thoroughgood local and good friend who always took the time to keep in touch. I'll seeing him perform and playing checkers after gigs.

I was so sorry to hear about Brian's passing in the paper. We were good friends growing up in Thoroughgood. My deepest sympathies go out to David, Ann and the rest of the family. Brian was a unique and extremely talented man. He would often come over to my mother's house and play our grand piano to our amazement. He will be sorely missed.

With my deepest sympathies,

Surprised and sorry to hear of Bryan's death. I used to have a good time coming over and playing drums to his organ, piano. I remember all of you in the family, and the pool, and, of course, the one of a kind "Bomb Shelter." I've been in KY for 20 yrs. and hadn't seen Bryan in decades. My deepest sympathies to you all. Will be praying for you, that God's peace and presence will comfort you.
