I met Brendan when we were in the same LSA class when he first started at Amtrak. Years later we worked a regular to Boston. We shared many meals together on the road....he even knew how I liked my coffee. He was the one always sending me silly things to my FB messenger to make me laugh! He was a funny guy! God Bless the Carey family.

I remember when he first started with Amtrak. We worked quite regular on the Empire Bulider. He was always a joy to work with and always had me laughing.
