Im SO sorry fir your loss!
We, here at Briar Creek Villas really feel a loss too. He was very reliable & handy - could repair anything!
There was a big kitty under the stairwell & Brian knocked on my door to see if it was mine. He looked just like mine altho he wasn't. I kept the kitty here 4 or 5 days - until we found out if kitty belonged to anybody here at Bruar Creek. Nobody responded so we called the animal shelter & they took him to a NO-KILL shelter.
During those several days, Brian stopped in to see how we were doing every day & he even brought his lunch into my apartment to eat while he checked on the kitty.
I just grew very fond of Brian the couple years I've lived here at Briar Creek.
I really miss him as I know the others here do too.
Thinking of all of You & holding You Up in my Prayers.
