We were at the cabin with our girlfriends and Brian wanted to show us the lower cabin which was in a bit of a ramshackle state. On the way down he was telling us how it was haunted by a woman who lost her baby. It was late at night and when we walked in Brian had a string attached to the rocking chair and he proceeded to make it move back and forth. My girlfriend burst into tears!

Brian Hay Was like a father to me, he taught me many things like how to fish, play baseball, love the Dodgers, follow my dreams and supported them. The funniest memory I have with him is when he took us to the cabin and was telling us cowboy and Indian stories the whole way up there then when we finally got there he said he was going to go turn on the water and came back with a fake arrow through his head, I’ve never been so scared in my life! He was always joking around and had smiles on his face. Til this day he is the best man I’ve ever met and I will always remember him that way. I hold him dearly in my heart forever!!!
