    Michael, Christina and Family,

    We would like to extend our condolences to you all. We heard the tragic news of your Dad’s death a few days ago.

    I got to meet Brain a few times as the “guy across the street” from us. He had mentioned his love for football and baseball to me. Our son, Adrian, spent quite a few nights at your place – he always had a good time. When they went out to a game or other event, Adrian was always invited – as if he were part of your family – how considerate. Brian even did his laundry after the boys got “a bit muddy…” playing around the yard! How nice is that?

    We wish you lots of strength in these tough times. Our thoughts are with you.

    Rudy, Eleanor, Alexandra, Cedric and Adrian

  14. We were best friends until we had a falling out just after high school. I missed your funeral because I found out to late. I wish I was able to attend to tell your kids what a great friend you were. Although on May 23rd (my birthday) we did run into each other briefly at a pub and it had been a long time since we had seen each other, maybe that was gods way of us saying good bye because we made ammends that day. I will pray for you and your family. Always love you bro!
