I remember so many fun times with all of the Climans’. They were the younger years... but I can remember them like yesterday. The picture in my mind of Brian (and Lauren) is the very one of the photo Lauren posted.
So many in the family who loved Brian have now passed... all the more to meet and embrace him now.
Sending love and peace
to Aunt Pat and Lauren.

My memories of my cousin are, unfortunately, few. I was 10 years old when he was born and remember a sweet little boy running around with his sister and other young cousins at family Thanksgiving and Chanukah parties. All wonderful snapshots in my mind. Hard to lose any of the Climan family. Love and strength to Aunt Pat and cousins.

Dear Brian, I know that your at peace. Your a very brave and strong guy to deal what you have dealt with for many years. Although distance has kept apart I still and always will have special memories of us as kids and teenage years with me forever. I remember when your mom called you and when we talked you said "There is only one Linda". Well I say to you "There is only one Brian" ❤

After Brian found it more difficult to walk, we went to Publix a few times and used the electric cart. I have fond memories of whizzing past displays, nearly knocking them down. We laughed a lot.

Brian i will always miss you. You were my protector when i was younger and then as i got older you always teased me and made me laugh. I am so glad you were able to meet Andy. I wish i could have spent more time with you, but we made up for it on the phone. You are my big brother and always will be. I love and miss you.I think of you daily. Love your little sister. Lauren

Brian, I have thought of you and prayed for you a lot over the years. I was so proud when you had your Bar Mitzvah. I love that you were so passionate. You fought so valiantly with your illness that I'm sure God will bless you in the afterlife.

Dearest Brian, you and I were always the closest of cousins. In childhood, playing and going up and down the rock stairs in your parents backyard and Lauren trying to catch up with us was so much fun. As adults, it brought me such joy visiting you in FL and how you introduced me to all your friends We were so proud of each other. I loved that. When we were apart you were always in my heart..and were you will always be.
