    Nancy and family, sympathy from all of us. Brian always was nice and cordial the few times together. I am sure he will be missed!

    Bryan was the oldest cousin on our side, his mom, Cheryl. I was the third oldest following his sister Shannon. So Bryan was our ‘Ring Leader’ you could say. He would tell us what to do and we’d, of course, do it. Funny things – things we’d get into trouble for later,. But, it was Bryan, so, it was always okay. That smile always got him out of trouble. Cheers Bryan – see you again soon!
