Dearest Brian, I’ve thought about you a million times over the years, and always with a smile knowing that you don’t have to see certain friends to know that they’re in your heart. May your intelligent, funny, caring, down-to-earth, talented soul rest in peace, dear Brian, and may your family’s grief turn to peace in your loving memory. Always and With Love, Bridget
