    Dear Colleen,
    I grew up with Brain as a kid we were cousins and boy was he a spunky one. He could always make you laugh even back then. He would give you such an innocent look that you could not resist. As the years went by we celebrate many birthdays, and holidays together. One time I called Brian and asked him to come over because my new puppy chewed my electric cord to my Christmas tree and Brian didn’t believe it at first and I be right there. Brian laugh so hard he couldn’t believe it. I said yeah she was lucky I had the tree unplugged. That was just one of many memories I will have. I love you Brian and I will miss you so very much Cuz. Until we meet again. God bless you Colleen and Betty I will keep you and your family in my prayers. So very sorry for your loss and you have my deepest sympathy.
