I remember meeting Mr. Brian at Lisa & Ray’s one year for a gathering and I immediately adored him. His stories, his wit and humor, plus his obvious love for his family was so heartwarming.
When we surprised Lisa for her birthday and Mr. Brian was here- I remember sitting next to him at the restaurant and him showing me photos of the children and telling me how proud he was of them, plus how he met Mrs Frieda and how he fell in love again after losing his first wife.
Those special days, although few, aren’t ones I’ll ever forget. It was a gift I’ll carry in my heart always.
Wishing You all love and strength during this time.
